Prevent Asthma Attacks In Your Home With Professional Air Duct Cleaning
Cut down on the airborne triggers for asthma in your home with professional air duct cleaning. Asthma is becoming a very common illness in the United States, 1 in 12 Americans suffer from it. Unfortunately, asthma sufferers sometimes cannot find relief, even within their home. Poor indoor air quality caused by contaminants such as pet dander, dust or pollen can trigger asthma attacks for these individuals. If you or a loved one suffers from asthma symptoms, try these steps to improve your indoor air quality and your quality of living.
1. Have your Home Heating and Air Conditioning system air ducts cleaned. Considering your HVAC system is what cycles air throughout your home, you want to make sure that your HVAC duct system is thoroughly cleaned and the filter is replaced as needed so you and your loved ones are not constantly breathing in contaminants and dust.
2. Make sure that hard surfaces in your home are dusted off and clean, especially if they are near vents and fans. If surfaces are dusty, chances are vents and fans will pick up that dust, making it airborne and increasing the possibility of it being breathed in causing an asthma attack. If you notice after you have dusted that within a day or two later there is dust build up again in your home, that is a very good indication that your home needs a professional air duct cleaning.
3. Frequently wash bed linens, rugs, and carpets. Dust mites and other asthma triggers like to find their homes in these places. Frequently washing and changing them will help reduce the chances of them surfacing and causing you or your family to have an asthma attack.
