Air quality plays an important role in our daily lives. If the air we’re breathing has been contaminated due to it moving through dirty air vents, then it can result in symptoms like congestion, asthma flares, headaches, and more. To those who may be more susceptible to health issues, like seniors, this can negatively affect their comfort and well-being. This is why we find it very important for nursing homes to stay up-to-date on their air duct cleaning.
In more extreme cases where the air ducts have not been cleaned in, for example, six years, there may be more dangerous problems hiding in the vents. Sometimes the contaminants will contain bacteria or viruses, which can result in the spreading of diseases like pneumonia or sinusitis. In a nursing home, that could be extremely dangerous. Additionally, if factors like carbon monoxide, pesticides, or other toxic components are introduced to the air through the circulating air vents, then symptoms like memory loss, blurred vision, or lethargy could begin to appear in the nursing home staff and residents.
Due to age of the residents, it’s important for a nursing home to be a clean environment. However, the environment can often be the reason why the air quality starts to worsen. Issues like deteriorating building materials, deteriorating carpet, chemicals from cleaning products, dust build-up, and other concerns will affect the air quality over time. If you’re not sure about the current state of your air, then our specialists can test it.
While health should be top priority for nursing homes, cleaning the HVAC system also helps save money on heating and cooling costs. With less blockage to halt air flow, the system works more efficiently. If you hire Enviro-Air for your air duct cleaning, we will also provide a free dryer cleaning service to prevent fire from build-up. We want you to breathe easier, so give us a call to set up your consultation.
