Indoor air pollution is the fourth greatest environmental threat to Americans based on the Environmental Protection Agency. Air Ducts can be found in lots of facilities, and while they are running they collect contaminants from the air passing through them. Having your air ducts cleaned can help improve the indoor air quality and the health of your employees.
Indoor air is found to be 70% more polluted than outdoor air. The cleaning of air ducts can help lower this number. If moisture is present in the duct, then mold can also grow and spread throughout the duct and circulate when your duct is on. Since there is no additional ventilation pollutants that enter the area mainly stay there since they have nowhere else to go. Exposure to mold and pollutants can cause irritation of the eyes, skin, throat, and respiratory tract. Headache, dizziness, and cold or flu like symptoms are also triggered by contaminants floating in the air and can cause a decrease of productivity of employees. In some people with preexisting conditions such as asthma or allergies, exposure to certain particles in the air can cause immediate attack. Long-term exposure to higher than normal concentrations of indoor pollutants can lead to chronic issues and in the case of some chemicals, can cause fatal disease including cancer.

Cleaning these ducts regularly can help with the wellness and allergies of the people in the building. C.M. Cleaning can help perform these tasks to keep improve your air quality and help the wellness of your employees.
