Air pollution is usually a danger you think about outside, especially if you live in a more congested urban area. However, air pollution can be just as harmful inside your home, where air is closer and you’re likely spending a lot more of your time right now.
The dangers of outdoor air pollution can easily find their way inside your home if you don’t get your airducts cleaned regularly.
There’s a lot you may not realize you need to worry about when it comes to the air quality inside your home. And while it can be scary to see how many pollutants and allergens can be hiding in plain sight, it’s important to know the dangers and know what to look for when it comes to indoor air pollution and how to combat it.
Below are some sources of air pollution indoors to consider as you’re deciding to get your airducts cleaned regularly.
You may not think of your household cleaners as potential allergens or pollutants in your air, but the harsh chemicals give off in the form of fumes can irritate the nose, mouth, eyes, and lungs, and even the skin of those in sensitive groups. Household cleaners in the air can cause problems for those with asthma and those with chronic sinusitis or other issues.
Cigarettes and Gas Ranges
While you may not have smokers in your home, cigarette smoke can get into windows and come into homes on clothes and other materials. These residual particles can cause a lot of harm to people when carried in the home. On top of that, gas ranges can give off irritating byproducts and make the air difficult to breath for certain groups.
Debris in Airducts
Over the years your airducts and ventilation systems can start to accumulate debris and other allergens. If left uncleaned, they will circulate this material through the air of your home and cause a lot more problems for those in sensitive respiratory groups or those with allergies. Getting your airducts professionally cleaned regularly is the best way to prevent this.
How can I cut down my risk?
There are a lot of ways. Getting your airducts cleaned regularly, making sure your gas range has a ventilation system, remove moisture in the air with air conditioners or dehumidifiers, test your emissions regularly, and a whole lot more.
Are candles dangerous to the air?
They can be. Any flame, regardless of size gives off around 4,000 toxins and by products that go into the air and can cling to hard and soft surfaces. Over time this can cause problems. On top of that, scented candles can add even more irritation to sensitive groups.
