Is Sick Building Syndrome Coming from Your Air Ducts?

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012 by Lisa Pixley

If you are managing a work, or retail space, it’s important to watch out for the health of your employees.  After all, if they are sick, or feeling unwell, then who will be there to work?  There is a lot of information out there concerning the role indoor air pollution has on employee health and several current studies about “sick building syndrome.”

Many of these studies indicate that the presence of biological, chemical and industrial contaminants found in air ducts and HVAC systems could in fact, contribute to “sick building syndrome” and increase health risks for you and your employees.  Cleaning these contaminants from your air ducts could help to reduce these risks and will definitely improve the quality of indoor air in your work environment.

Winter is fast approaching and the heater is going to be running.  Have you considered cleaning your air ducts out?  Everyone knows what that dusty, burning odor is the first few times the heater turns on for winter.  But have you considered what that might mean to your lungs?  If you can smell it, chances are you are breathing in some of those particulates, which can cause a considerable amount of irritation in your lungs, eyes, throat and nose.
Getting your air ducts, furnace and air conditioning coils, grills, blowers, heat exchanges and air filtering equipment cleaned and sanitized this winter can greatly reduce the amount of particulates blown into your home and therefor reduce the amount you, and your family breathe in.  While you are winterizing your home and getting everything ready for the Minneapolis Winter,  cleaning your air ducts should definitely be on your “to do” list.  Let Alpha Air Corporation help you ensure that your ducts and furnace are clean this Winter.
