Danger: Air Pollution In The Home!

Air Pollutants come from anywhere and everywhere, prevent them from being in your home today!

When you start thinking about all the things that can hurt you or potentially kill you, chances are you didn’t assume air pollution in your home could be on that list. Well it most definitely is! Dangers that lurk around your home aren’t always visible which makes them even more scary. The list goes on and on of all the potentially hazardous chemicals that sit in your home and could cause you problems at any time. Below is a tiny list of possible everyday products and substances in your air that could be life threatening to you and your loved ones.

  • oil, gas and kerosene
  • coal and wood
  • tobacco products
  • cabinetry or wood made of certain pressed products
  • products for cleaning and maintenance
  • personal care products
  • hobby materials
  • outdoor sources such as radon and pesticides
  • outdoor air pollutants
  • deteriorated or asbestos-containing insulation
  • wet or damp carpet
  • humidification products
  • building materials and furnishings

The relative importance of any single source depends on how much of that pollutant it emits and how hazardous those emissions are. In some cases, factors such as how old the source is and whether it is properly maintained are significant. For example, an improperly adjusted gas stove can emit significantly more carbon monoxide than one that is properly adjusted.

For other sources such as building materials, furnishings, and household products like air fresheners, those items release pollutants more or less continuously. Other instances related to activities carried out in the home release pollutants intermittently. These include smoking, the use of unvented or malfunctioning stoves, furnaces, or space heaters, the use of solvents in cleaning and hobby activities, the use of paint strippers in redecorating activities, and the use of cleaning products and pesticides in house-keeping. The high pollutant concentrations in those items can remain in the air for long periods after some of these activities. Luckily for you and the rest of Florida, Professional AC & Heating has been around for over 25 years and we have the solution to your indoor air quality needs!

Hello, How Can We Help You?

Since we’ve shed a bit of light on some of the questionable substances possibly floating around in your home, the next thing you need to know is what ProMag can do to help. Your air duct system can hold many of these contaminants for years making them worse. And then there’s the worst pollutant of them all, wait for it…. MOLD! Mold is a growing, sometimes lethal, bacteria that can easily wreak havoc on your home and the people living in it. Florida is an especially easy place for mold to grow and take over. The constant heat and humidity make it a mold breeding ground.

To take care of any mold, dust, debris, or other pollutants from constantly being circulated through your home it is best that you get your duct work inspected. Professional AC offers free duct inspection by our licensed and bonded HVAC technicians who are sure to let you know if anything is building up or growing up there.

So if there are problems lying in your duct work, how do we solve them? Great question. We start by attaching a monstrous hose that is connected to a powerful vacuum truck to the vent and it sucks out anything that is in there (pulls in twelve thousand cubic feet of air per minute!). We finish up by spraying the ducts with Sporicidin and shining UV lights in there to destroy any other pollutants that may not be visible to the naked eye. Once we are done cleaning and sanitizing the ducts it is important that you keep your air filters changed out regularly to maintain your status of having pristine duct work. All of these procedures combined will surely make the air flow in your home safe for everyone to breathe.
