Sneezing, watery eyes, and itchy eyes are all routine nuisances for anyone living with allergies. A common treatment for allergy sufferers is to treat their symptoms with antihistamines, which can be costly or can cause unwanted side effects. An alternative to taking a pill everyday is something you might not have considered, and it involves air duct cleaning. Duct and vent cleaning can help with allergy symptoms and improve the indoor air quality.

Why Duct and Vent Cleaning Be Helpful for Allergy Sufferers

Particles from dust, dander from pets, and cigarette smoke get caught in air vents and build up over time. As air is passed through the duct and vent systems of a house, the particles are blown out and into the air and eventually inhaled into your lungs. People who suffer from allergies or asthma are most affected by this problem. This process affects you even more if your immune system is compromised or if you’re an allergy sufferer.

 

Beyond dust, pet dander, and cigarette smoke, pollen can also be blown into the air we breathe by the ventilation system of your home. If asthma or allergy symptoms get worse and you’re not sure why, it could be due to the buildup in your duct and vents. Due to harsh Minnesota winters, most Minnesotans have their houses closed up for during the cold winter months. Those built-up particles will continue to circulate until the ducts and vents are cleaned out.

Mold is a Serious Health Concern

You can take a look inside your ducts to see if they appear to be dirty, as you might be able to tell if there is an accumulation of dust or other debris. If there is visible mold growing, it is imperative you have the areas tested and all mold removed. Continued inhalation of mold particles can lead to serious health issues such as nosebleeds, headaches, or respiratory tract infections. More severe reactions could include fever or shortness of breath.

 

Cleaning your air ducts regularly is important for improved air quality, and it is even more important if people in your home suffer from asthma or allergies.
