We are practicing social distancing, sanitizing all equipment, and washing our hands even more frequently and thoroughly than before. Our services continue uninterrupted, and some services may not even require us to enter your home! We are dedicated to providing safe and efficient services to those who need it during these troubling times.
Importance of Indoor Air Quality
The importance of indoor air quality cannot be overstated. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Americans spend roughly 90% of their time indoors and the concentration of certain air pollutants is two to five times higher indoors than out. This 90% number is already very high but is likely even higher now with people spending virtually all of their time indoors during this pandemic.
Prolonged exposure to poor indoor air can cause many different symptoms and lead to various health problems. It can cause short term symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, sore throat, dizziness, nausea, headaches, eye irritation, and many others. It can also cause respiratory diseases, heart disease, and more. Those with existing chronic conditions such as asthma or bronchitis are likely to be more irritated by poor indoor air quality and at risk for developing further illnesses. Poor indoor air quality is more detrimental to the health of infants, toddlers, and the elderly than healthy adolescents or adults. If you think you are experiencing symptoms caused by poor indoor air quality, seek medical attention immediately.
Air Duct Cleaning Services
Regular air duct cleaning services are very important to keep your indoor air safe. Harmful materials such as dust, dirt, debris, mold, mildew, pet hair, and various other allergens and pathogens build up in air ducts over time. If the ducts are not regularly cleaned and maintained, these harmful airborne materials are spread throughout the home and irritate all inhabitants. Neglecting air duct cleaning also negatively impacts your HVAC system’s performance by causing issues such as poor temperature control, humidity, poor airflow or circulation, and other various problems. An inefficient HVAC system is very wasteful, as much of the air produced will not be used to heat and cool your home. This leads to a noticeable increase in your home’s energy costs and carbon footprint.
Fortunately, C&C Chimney offers air duct cleaning for all commercial and residential buildings. Our team of professional technicians uses negative pressure, vacuums, and filter bags to remove all harmful contaminants. We then properly disinfect, sanitize, and deodorize your air ducts to create a safe and comfortable indoor environment. We want Tulsa residents to feel safe and healthy indoors, especially during these trying times. After one of our air duct cleanings, you will notice a significant improvement in your home’s indoor air quality. You should also see improvement in any lingering symptoms or health problems caused by poor air quality. Finally, your HVAC system’s heightened efficiency will also lead to significantly lower energy costs in both the short and long term!
We also offer dryer vent cleanings for Tulsa area homeowners. Lint buildup in your dryer vent causes many problems for your dryer and home. It is a major fire hazard, as roughly 4,300 dryer fires a year are caused by a dirty vent. It also negatively impacts your dryer’s efficiency, as it will take longer to complete a drying cycle and can even damage your clothes. This leads to an increase in your home’s energy costs. It can also emit harmful fumes and chemicals that can decrease your indoor air quality. Fortunately, all of this is preventable with regular dryer vent cleanings by one of our professional Certified Dryer Exhaust Technicians (CDET).
