What’s in Your Air?
The contamination shown on the left is the normal by-product of living things occupying closed spaces.
Skin cells, mold, dust, dirt, mildew, pet dander, aerosol sprays, glue, paint, cooking oils, insecticides, and mouse feces are just a few of the contaminants that float in the air inside our homes or offices.
But, there’s another problem. It doesn’t stay in the air.
These particles settle and find a hiding place to collect and build into a real mess.
What’s Hiding in Your Ducts?
Over a two to three year span, air ducts become lined with particles of contaminants as they settle inside the system. Organic material (hair and skin cells) can also support the growth of mold and mildew.
These pictures show a buildup that is not unusual for a system left untouched for five or more years. This blanket of dirt is bad enough as it builds up in the system.
However, it doesn’t just lay there. It finds a way back into your lungs.
