"A Healthy Home is a Happy Home"
How much dust can my home really generate and accumulate in my ducts every year?
Most homes generate about 40 pounds of dust per year for every 1.500 square feet of space. And about 40,000 dust mites, which is a common cause of household allergies, can be found in only one ounce of dust! This dust accumulates in your ducts and is pushed into your home by your home's heating or cooling system. Duct & Mist has the proper equipment and the professionals to remove all that dust, mold and allergens so you can be healthier and breathe easier.
Can my children be more susceptible to allergies because of the air quality in my home?
Because they breathe faster than adults, children inhale 50% more air per pound of body weight than adults and are especially sensitive to air quality problems.
“Over 2.6 million Canadians over age 12 and 12% of children under 12 suffer from asthma related breathing problems.” - Source: asthma.ca.
How seriously should I be taking the air quality in my home and place of work?
The EPA ranks indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health.
EPA studies indicate that indoor levels of many pollutants may be 25 times, and occasionally more than 100 times, higher than outdoor levels. In general, indoor air is four to five times more polluted than outdoor air.
The result? In the last 30 years, the number of people with asthma has gone up by almost 60%.
What can I do to ensure that the air quality in my home remains very good?
To help combat these air quality issues, it is very important to have your furnace and duct system professionally cleaned every 2-3 years. Cleaning your furnace and duct system regularly will not only improve the indoor air quality in your home and create a healthier indoor environment, but it will also increase the longevity of your heating or cooling system.
