When you live in a place that is known to cause allergies it is important to know where these allergens are coming from. These allergens are what will cause your allergies to start to act up and make you feel bad. The most common time of year for allergies to be a problem is the spring. The weather is perfect for plants to bloom and that is the biggest trigger. The end of spring does not mean that allergy season is over. You are sure to continue to suffer through the summer if you live in a dry area that has a desert atmosphere such as Las Vegas. The dust can continue to be a problem for allergy sufferers. Just because you are sitting in your home and out of the weather does not mean that you are safe from allergens. They are found in your home and you need to do what you can to remove them.
Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning Lists a Few Areas of Your Home that Could Be Housing Allergens
Air Duct Cleaning & Sanitizing: One of the most common areas of your home that seem to hold onto the allergens and dust are the air ducts. These are the metal tubing that run in the attic space of your home to each room. They are part of the HVAC unit and is where the air that is circulated, cooled or heated is sent throughout the home. The problem is that the duct work often times becomes full of dust and other allergens that can be released into the air in your home. The air is filtered through the return air system and even if you change the filters often the debris can still get through. If you are concerned about allergies and the dust that is building up in the duct work you need to have them cleaned. This is not a process that can be done yourself because the duct runs in many directions. Hiring a professional to come out and do this cleaning will improve air quality in your home and increase the efficiency.
Dryer Vent Cleaning: One of the appliances that you use on a regular basis is the washer and dryer. They are necessary to keep your clothes and other fabrics cleaned and smelling good. The problem is that the fabric will often times have particles that come off in this process. This is what is referred to as lint. The lint is caught in a lint trap that most people know they need to clean out between each cycle. This is so the lint stays in that area and allows the dryer to work efficiently. Even if you are careful about cleaning this area you will still have lint getting in the dryer vent. This vent is actually a fire hazard and holds lots of dust that are a problem for allergy sufferers. A professional can come out and remove the debris from the dryer vent.
Cleaning Bathroom Exhaust Fan Ducts: That last place that you might not think of that allergens can easily get trapped is the exhaust fans. The fans are often times in bathrooms as a way to vent the air out. The exhaust leads to the outside air and can be full of dust and allergens that are being pulled up when the fan is turned on. These should also be cleaned out on a regular basis.
