May 12, 2011 // Franchising.com // ANN ARBOR, MI – May is a significant month for indoor air quality. During this month, some people around the country are beginning to transition over and start using their air conditioning units for the summer. But May is also the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America's National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month in addition to a hosting the American Lung Association's Clean Air Week. During this time of the year, DUCTZ, the nation's premiere air duct, carpet and upholstery cleaning franchise, encourages homeowners to consider air duct cleaning as part of their Spring Cleaning regiment.
"May is a perfect month for homeowners to consider having their air ducts cleaned out. Not only is the month dedicated to indoor air quality awareness, but it is right before the start of summer," said Tom Yacobellis, Vice President of Corporate Operations for DUCTZ. "Once you turn your air conditioning unit on, all of the dirt and toxins that have accumulated in there during the winter months are released in to the air you breathe daily. Cleaning out these air ducts is critical in aiding respiratory health."
Yacobellis added that if left untreated, the toxins and mold found in air vents can create a variety of respiratory and health problems including chronic asthma, allergies, respiratory inflammation and other serious lung illnesses. Studies have proven that filtered, clean air can reduce Cardiovascular Problems and improve vascular function. This study can be viewed at the following link:
