Dust and Dust Mites

A small amount of dust is to be expected in air ducts and is natural. However, an excessive amount of dust mites can cause serious problems and will build up unless the air ducts in your home are cleaned regularly. Dust allergies are a common cause of illness, and asthma sufferers may also see the worst symptoms from an increased number of dust mites. However, even healthy residents can suffer from breathing problems, itchy eyes, and rashes caused by dust mites.

(Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus)
MRSA has hit the headlines for causing serious outbreaks of infection within hospitals. The MRSA virus may also be transmitted and therefore contracted through the air ducts in your home. Air duct cleaning will help to minimize the risk, and performed often enough, or with UV lighting installed, the risk can be completely contained. MRSA can attack the skin causing a reddening of the skin and rashes, but it can also attack the lungs and other vital organs causing breathing difficulties and fever.

The e-coli bacteria can also use the air ducts within your home to breed freely. Once they have bred, they will then be circulated around the home by way of the air ducts that you believe keep your air fresh. The most common symptoms of e-coli include cramp, bloody diarrhea, and possible nausea. The symptoms can be dangerous for all people, but especially children.

Various salmonella bacteria may also be harboring within your air ducts and your air conditioning system. If these bacteria reach your food then salmonella food poisoning is a very real risk. Salmonella symptoms include headaches, pain in the abdomen, and vomiting and diarrhea. Fever is almost always noted and, especially in children, dehydration becomes a real problem.
