DIRTY AIR DUCTS CAUSE HEALTH PROBLEMS!
If you have chronic health problems, they may be related to the indoor air you are breathing. In numerous independent case studies as well as studies conducted by the EPA and OSHA, Sick Building Syndrome, has been traced to air ducts in the workplace and the home. By definition, Syndrome is a group of signs and symptoms that occur together to characterize a particular abnormality. In sick buildings, these abnormalities are making us sick.
Problems occur when the heating and cooling system in our homes and offices are not routinely and/or properly maintained. According to the American Lung Association, indoor air can be 2-10 times more polluted than outdoor air.
Some allergens commonly recirculated in air duct systems are bacteria, pollen, skin flakes, animal dander, decaying organic matter, fungi, hair, dust mites, viruses, textile fibers and residue from chemicals. When we neglect these systems, we pay the price with our health. Contaminated air recirculating throughout a home or office can cause fatigue, runny noses, nasal congestion, headaches, chills, fever, coughing and wheezing and other symptoms related to more serious diseases.
Why has MS Enterprises LLC put together a staff of certified professionals to decontaminate heating and cooling systems and the air ducts used to condition the air we live in? MS Enterprises LLC has an array of equipment to ensure the thorough cleaning of the forced air system. These agitate, remove and capture the pollutants out of the duct and meet the challenge of abating the occupant's problems.
It has been out experience to remove 3 to 5 pounds of dirt and dust from the average home, but it is not uncommon to remove as much as 10 to 15 pounds of debris. More often than not, we remove what we call post construction debris. This debris simply is left in the heating and cooling system by the various work crews and is a collection of dirt, dust, sawdust, sheet rock, wood, and fiberglass insulation. We remove it and improve the air quality of our work and the resulting benefit.
Over the pst few years, more and more people are becoming health conscious. Many of us are now paying closer attention to the food we eat and the water we drink and most important of all the air we breathe. THough all seem of equal concern, plain common sense tells us that we breathe air continuously while we eat and drink at various times of the day. Studies have shown that indoor air has 10-15 times more airborne particulate matter than outside air. Furniture, drapes, carpeting, bedding, sheets, and blankets release their own particulate into the air and also collect any that comes into the home environment. Pets continuously give off animal dander and/or hair.
Those of us who are about the air we breathe realize that theses pollutants must be cleaned out of the home environment as thoroughly as possible to be free from dust and other contaminants. Sadly enough, there are those who overlook the air quality in the home. These people tend to be more susceptible to developing allergy or flu like symptoms such as: sneezing, itchy/watery eyes, rashes, colds, itchy skin, dry throat, coughing, and breathing difficulties.
The single most important element in controlling these pollutants and maintaining an indoor clean air environment is our own air conditioning and heating air duct system. MS Enterprises LLC, a highly recommended, well established air duct cleaning company, puts it this way: "What goes around comes around", a saying many of us have heard before. But in this case the meaning is definitely justified. Dust particles are stirred up and become airborne and "sucked up" into the air system. Disposable filters will catch some of the larger particles but 75-90% of the smaller particles pass through. Over a period of time, what accumulates cannot be imagined. Then cycling through the air duct system, it returns into the home air environment to start all over again. Naturally you continue inhaling the contaminated air, causing you discomfort and possible respiratory problems.
