The health and safety of our bodies and our loved ones’ bodies should always be a top priority. Orogold Air Duct Cleaning understands this mission, and that is why we’re here to discuss the importance of running air quality tests in your home. Today’s blog will discuss the various things you could be breathing in if you aren’t having your ducts regularly tested and cleaned.
Did you know that Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer for nonsmokers? It’s true! Radon is a radioactive gas that is formed and stored in the soil of your yard. It will find its way into your home through cracks in the floors and walls that come into contact with leaking ground pockets in your yard. Air quality tests can detect higher than normal levels of Radon and prevent sickness within your lungs.
Allergies are a major cause of asthma flare-ups. Mold spores, pollen, dust, smog, and dander are all significant allergens that can irritate your lungs and cause asthma attacks. All of these pollutants quickly build up in your breathable air supply. Using a quarterly air quality test in your home can help prevent asthma attacks and allergy flare-ups.
Peace of Mind
The common saying is, “You are what you eat,” well, the same can be said for, “You are what you breathe,” remember this the next time you snuggle up on the couch with your favorite family members to watch a movie or play with your pet. If you don’t have regular air quality tests in your home, you don’t know if the components your loved ones are breathing are genuinely safe for their bodies. Take the question out of the equation, and live with true peace of mind by scheduling an air quality test today.
