The air ducts in your home provide a very important function - they circulate the air from your heating and cooling system into and out of each room.
The air cycling through your ducts is the same air that completely fills your living environment and is the same air that you and your family breathe so you want this air to be as clean as possible.
Research indicates that 30 percent of adults and 40 percent of children in the United States have allergies.
What are allergies?
If you come into contact with a substance that your immune system views as a threat, called an allergen, it responds by releasing a chemical called histamine and other substances. The release of these substances is what causes your allergic reaction.
These substances commonly include materials such as pet dander, dust or pollen. Anything can be an allergen if the immune system has an adverse reaction.
Sneezing, wheezing and itching - you may think what you’re experiencing is normal. There are many ways allergies can show up. One way to keep your allergies from being triggered and give your immune system a breath of fresh air is getting your carpets, area rugs, upholstery and mattresses professionally cleaned.
