Home wellness tips to prevent seasonal illness & allergies
Just as we take steps to keep ourselves healthy through the changing of the seasons, we need to do the same with our home. Heating and air conditioning units that aren’t properly maintained and cleaned can cause additional allergens and particles to circulate around your home. Also, dust and mold that isn’t removed can affect air quality in your home which can increase you and your family’s chances of sickness or long-term health problems if left untreated. Allergy and flu-like symptoms can develop as a result of poor air quality caused by a dirty filter or ductwork.
Duct cleaning is of utmost important when speaking about the “wellness” of your home. Having an HVAC professional annually clean your ducts will eliminate build-up of dust and mold. Because they are hidden from plain site, you may not think to have the inside of your ducts cleaned. However, the Environmental Protection Agency ranks indoor air quality as one of the top 5 environmental risks to public health. 87% of American homeowners are not aware of indoor pollution. Homes today are built more air tight than older homes, meaning that there is little ventilation.
Broadley’s offers duct cleaning services using a machine called the “Rotobrush”. This technology allows the Broadley’s team to fully clean and disinfect your homes ducts. First, the registers will be removed and cleaned followed by the cleaning of your supply and trunk. This filtration system is said to remove up to 99.97% of particles found in ducts. At the end, the system is disinfected with an antimicrobial treatment. This process takes about 2 hours to complete.
Along with duct cleanings, the regular changing of filters allows for better airflow throughout the home. Dirty filters hold allergens, irritants and more. We suggest Hepa quality filters for your system because they are designed to provide the highest level of filtration available. Also, we offer an in-duct air purifier that is called Reme Halo. This product sweeps through your home actively purifying pollutants at the source using hyrdo-peroxide which occurs naturally in the earth’s atmosphere and are part of nature’s process of cleaning the air.
If you haven’t had your ducts inspected recently, it is important for the wellness of your home to get them checked out and cleaned.
