Many contaminants keep the air in your home from being fresh. Sometimes it’s not even safe to breathe the air in our homes due to these impurities. “Sick building syndrome” and triggering your allergies are common issues you can avoid when you know what to do. HVAC cleaning makes a noticeable difference in air quality. Breathe easier when we sweep surface contaminants out of your ducts. Contact Dust Doctors in Little Canada, Minnesota, and let us help make the air in your home safer. Here are some of the worst air contaminants we can work toward eliminating:


1. Second-Hand Smoke

If a smoker used to live in your house or you recently quit smoking, get your HVAC ducts cleaned. We all know second-hand smoke is harmful, and stale smoke is an awful smell.


2. Biological Pollutants

Biological contaminants includes these and more: animal dander, cat saliva, dust mites, cockroaches, pollen, bacteria, and viruses. It’s necessary to control the humidity level in your home to keep these things under control. High humidity is a breeding ground for this sort of air invader.


3. Carbon Monoxide

This deadly contaminate is far more common than many know. It is found in unvented gas and kerosene space heaters and can come from leaky furnaces and chimneys. Other sources include, but are not limited, to furnaces, gas water heaters, wood stoves, fireplaces, gas stoves, generators, automobile exhaust, tobacco smoke, and combustion devices.


4. Pesticides

While this may be a necessary evil, sometimes it can just seem pure evil to those with allergies to the residue from pesticides. The contaminant level in the home isn’t only from household use. Time and again, it’s been shown that household pesticide levels are increased by about 20 percent due to outside contaminants. Possible sources include:


●        Soil tracked in from outdoors

●        Dust entering the home from an exterior source

●        Surfaces that collect contaminates externally then release them internally


5. Nitrogen

Nitrogen consists of these two most prevalent forms: nitrogen dioxide and nitric oxide. These corrosive, toxic gases often come from combustion processes such as:


●        Welding

●        Tobacco smoke

●        Kerosene heaters

●        Appliances, e.g., gas stoves

●        Defective vented appliances
