Midwest Clean Air provides air duct cleaning services for residential homes and commercial businesses throughout the Omaha, Nebraska, area.
Even though Omaha is a big city, its location in the wholesome Midwest means our air here is clean and clear. Residents are treated to blue skies and gentle breezes on a regular basis. But just because the air outside is clean doesn’t mean the air inside your home is of the same quality.
Humans spend up to 90 percent of their time indoors, so it’s important that the air we breathe at home and at work be clean and healthy. Unfortunately, it often isn’t as clean as it could be.
HVAC systems have become ubiquitous in our culture. We depend on them to make the air in our homes and workplaces a comfortable temperature for us. Thus, this system works for us up to 365 days per year.
The air ducts in our homes carry cool air to each room, and depending on what type of heating system you have, these ducts may carry the heat as well. Your air ducts are the path the air takes from the outside to your lungs, so they should be clean and sanitary.
The reality is, however, that they often aren’t. They’re coated with dust, pollen, pet dander and all manner of contaminants.
The problem is that home and business owners don’t think about their air ducts being dirty because they can’t see them. They’re in the walls, out of sight, out of mind. This is why we so frequently see air ducts choked with dirt and dust that have not been cleaned in years.
These contaminants are blown into your house or office every time the HVAC system kicks on. It means your furniture gets dustier faster, but these particulates can also make you sick. Simple dust and dirt can cause asthma symptoms to kick up and contribute to colds and upper respiratory infections.
Pet dander and pollen can exacerbate allergy symptoms, including itchy, watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing and coughing. These symptoms can become chronic and lead to bacterial infections.
When you call Midwest Clean Air, you can rest assured you’ll be breathing freely again soon.
