During the season of all things scary, we set aside a special time to think about (and celebrate) the things that frighten us the most: those little things that go bump in the night! And for many people, the scariest things are the things that we can’t even see.
Today, we’re discussing allergens, things that often go unseen, but can threaten the health of those that suffer from their presence. Allergens are everywhere, including the very air that we breathe and the air inside your own home. Home is a place where everyone should be able to get away from things that threaten their health, but evil has its ways. At this point, you’re likely wondering how various allergens, irritants, and pollutants make their way into your home. The answer?
It’s true! If you’re suffering from the sniffles inside your own home, it’s likely that dirty air ducts are to blame. Right after carpet, the air ducts in your home harbor more allergy-inducing agents than any other area in your home.
According to the EPA, the number of air pollutants present in indoor air can be 2-5 (or in some cases, 10) times higher than outdoor levels, and more than 150 known carcinogens have been found in both homes and offices. For people with serious allergy issues, this can be especially problematic, making the need for a change greater than ever.
