Why you should clean your ducts
Ducts were never meant to be dirty; instead, they are designed to remove smoke, dust, and air conditioning air. They are thus prone to contamination and dust inhalation. In turn, this can lead to a number of respiratory issues such as shortness of breath, allergies, nasal congestion, and sinusitis. Furthermore, if left dirty, it can damage your home’s HVAC system. Ducts can collect various levels of pollutants such as dust, air pollutants, mold, and other contaminants. These pollutants can cause nasty diseases such as asthma, bronchitis, and lung cancer. Such ailments are very common in the UAE and are considered a bigger health concern compared to respiratory conditions such as colds, fever, and flu.
