Utah Duct Cleaning
In a 2012 article written by Deseret News: “According to SALT LAKE CITY — Utah has one of the worst air pollution problems in the country and the impacts are startling: The pollution is killing people.”
Have you ever taken a look inside your vents? Most likely there are all kinds of unpleasant, forgotten possessions in there. Toys, crayons, pet hair, dust bunnies. Even more disturbing are the foreign matter you CAN’T see: pollen, dander, mold, fungus spores, etc. caused by Utah’s rather diverse seasons.
Each season in Utah presents its own set of unique problems which immensely affect the quality of our indoor air.
Spring and summer: We leave our windows and doors open which brings allergens such as dust, pollen, pet hair, fungus spores, mold, and air pollution into our homes. Air conditioners are running continually at peak performance and they are circulating this poor air through our HVAC system and ducts. Stuffy noses and watery eyes are not uncommon. Trees, flowers, and grass release millions of spores which cause us to sneeze, plug up our sinuses, make our eyes water, and make us feel terrible. If you have dogs or cats this is the time of year they are shedding. Pet hair can clog up blower fans and air conditioning coils. Not only will your air conditioner be less efficient, it will also be more likely to break down. Lack of air flow and freezing refrigerant lines are signs of a plugged up system. We leave our windows and doors open which lets in dust. Air conditioners are running at peak performance and they are running this poor air through our HVAC systems.
Fall and Winter: Autumn in Utah means grass and weed pollens are present together. Pollen grains are lightweight and spread easily, especially on windy days. Utah’s wet and windy autumn causes the pollen to spread easily, and can also ramp up mold spores. In the winter we have very dry air. Utah is in the top ten on a list of cities with the driest air in the United States. In fact, our air has the same humidity as the air in the Sahara Dessert! As we crank up the heat indoors, we are disturbing resting house dust and removing even more humidity out of our homes, circulating dry, dusty air through our HVAC system and ducts. When the inversion sets in our bodies are also assaulted by the pollution in the air. If you have pets, they are mostly indoors in the winter. Their hair and skin dander are circulating through the air day and night. These two added components can be detrimental to the quality of your indoor air.
This poses the following question: What is your family breathing in?
