How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect Your Health
People spend the majority of their lives indoors, and at times the pollutants you encounter outside aren't as high as the ones in your home. Indoor air pollution ranks as one of the top four environmental hazards in America according to The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
During this global pandemic, our concern for our health and normalcy makes us think about the necessary precautions to protect ourselves. It's always a good idea to start within the home. Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems collect a variety of contaminants such as mold, fungi, bacteria, and very small particles of dust, which have shown to have an impact on your health. You can perform your own visual inspection for dust and debris using a flashlight and mirror. But we highly recommend a professional cleaning contractor like CLEAN DUCTS ORLANDO to access the system components and with specialized inspection tools.
