In the fight against COVID-19 many states have enforced stay-at-home orders. With all this prolonged time at home, have you thought about the safety of your Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)? The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ranks indoor air pollution among the top four environmental hazards in America. Regularly cleaning your air ducts not only helps deter the spread of COVID-19 it also protects you and your family against other germs, viruses and pollutants.
COVID-19 has demonstrated that no one is completely safe from the threat of airborne viruses. The illness is known to infect individuals via droplets from an infected person being transmitted directly or indirectly (via settlement on surfaces or occupied spaces). According to the DC Department of Energy and Environment people are at a higher risk of environmental health hazards in their own homes due to infestations, overuse of toxins and even poor ventilation.
Unfortunately, our HVAC systems which are built to provide comfort are also machines that can circulate dangerous contaminants. For example, airborne droplets such as those that spread COVID-19 can enter your HVAC system and biologically live off of “food sources” such as flaked skin cells and moisture coming from your HVAC’s coil. If you regularly wash your hands and disinfect surfaces in your home, it is imperative to also sanitize your HVAC system.
We are improving our technology and retraining our skilled technicians in proper sanitation to handle these tough situations. Our EPA approved and sustainable Sanitizing Solution has proved effective in killing bacteria and pathogens.
