Did you know that on average, people take 24,000 breaths each day? Each minute we breath about 2 gallons of air. That’s close to 3,000 gallons in one day! But the real question is what are you breathing on a daily basis?
Air ducts can harbor mold, dust mites, bacteria, fungi, rodents and other pollutants. One ounce of dust contains nearly 42,000 living dust mites. Each mite is expelling 20 fecal pellets every day into the air you breathe. Suspended airborne spores can cause numerous allergic reactions. Mold or fungi spores can contaminate indoor air, which can lead to allergies, asthma or other health problems. Not to mention viruses on top of all that.
According to the American Lung Association, 5 microns or smaller will pass through the human lungs.
