Cleaning the air ducts cleaned in your home or business can greatly improve the overall air quality.
The impact air duct cleaning can have on your indoor air quality is the benefit that is most closely associated with air duct cleaning. Most people are unaware of the drastic impact the quality of their indoor air can have on their health. The EPA has estimated that people spend 90% or more of their time indoors. When people think about pollution, they associate it with something that is outdoors. However, the air inside your home can have levels of pollutants that are 2 to 5 times higher than the air outside. We know that sounds kind of crazy, but it’s true.
How could that be the case? Fresh air is not introduced to the inside of your home. The same particulates and pollutants that are trapped inside your property will continuously circulate throughout the interior. The only way that dust and other harmful particulates get removed from the air is through your air ducts. A home’s HVAC unit has ducts that supply air and they also have ducts that return air to the HVAC system. The ducts that return air to the HVAC system have the most dust because they are constantly pulling in air. That is not to say that the ducts that supply air to your home don’t have dust in them too. While your HVAC system does have a filter, even the best filters can only filter out 90% of dust and air pollutants.
Dust is not the only thing you have to worry about in your air ducts. Mold is a far more dangerous adversary than dust. According to the World Health Organization, 7 million deaths each year can be linked to indoor and outdoor air pollution. Additionally, the EPA & Berkeley have estimated that of the 21.8 million US citizens who have asthma, 4.6 million of those cases can be attributed directly to mold exposure in the home. Expert mold specialists have stated that infants who are exposed to mold within their first year of life within their living environment are almost three times more likely to become asthmatic than infants who have not had extensive mold exposure. The Mayo Clinic has even stated that 93% of all chronic sinus infections can be attributed to mold.
Most people are shocked to find out that toxic mold spores can be found almost everywhere in nature and are likely already in your home. However, toxic mold spores need the right food sources and environment in order to thrive. Unfortunately, mold spores ideal surroundings can be found right in your air ducts. Especially air the air ducts located in your kitchen or bathroom. Mold spores need a humidity level above 55%, a food source (any organic material such as dust), and darkness. That makes your air ducts an ideal environment for mold growth.
There are three factors that factor heavily in mold production.
Moisture – Georgia maintains a humidity level throughout 9 of 12 months annually that provide enough moisture for mold to be able to grow. A very common misconception is that mold needs significant amounts of water. However, even just the relative humidity will provide enough moisture for mold to grow in your air ducts. Relative humidity is not the only source of moisture that accumulates in your air ducts. As a matter of fact, air ducts can also create moisture internally due to the contrast of temperature between the air on the outside of the duct and the inside of the duct. That type of moisture accumulation can be exacerbated in the summer if there is a small hole in one of your ducts. Additionally, air ducts that border an exterior wall of a home will be more likely to create moisture than other ducts in your home. Eliminating all moisture from your duct system is not a viable option for eliminating the potential for mold exposure.
Lack of Light – As we mentioned previously, mold thrives in dark areas. Your air ducts are almost as dark as it can get. Even the areas where light can reach are rarely, if ever, exposed to UV light. Mold will not thrive in areas that are exposed to UV rays from natural light. Ducts are truly prime real estate for mold. You can’t bottle sunshine and put it in your air ducts but cleaning your air ducts will eliminate the other key environmental factor required for mold growth.
Food – Reducing or eliminating dust from your air ducts is the best way to reduce the potential for mold growth. Mold can use any organic substance as a food source, including dust! Dust is an easy and readily available food source for mold. It’s certainly no mystery that dust can be found in every air duct within your home. Hiring a professional air duct cleaning service in Marietta like Daffy Ducts reduces the chance of mold thriving within your air ducts.
