How Allergens get into your duct System
In a typical home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living. These 40 pounds of dust consists of many asthma and allergy triggers like insect parts and droppings, human skin, house hold cleaning chemicals, pet hair and dander and more. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated to the home 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the duct work.
Not only are these contaminants triggers for allergies but also they are food sources for mold and other bacteria/fungi to feed and colonize in your heating ventilation and air conditioning system.
Proper cleaning of the Duct and A/C system will remove these contaminate and improve indoor air quality dramatically. All collection units DUCTZ uses contain individually tested HEPA filters. This ensures that all contaminate are trapped in our equipment and removed from your home.
