Mold and your Health

Facts about Mold and Dampness
There is always some mold everywhere - in the air and on many surfaces. Molds have been on the Earth for millions of years. Mold grows where there is moisture.

Mold and Your Health

Exposure to damp and moldy environments may cause a variety of health effects, or none at all. Some people are sensitive to molds. For these people, molds can cause nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, coughing or wheezing, eye irritation, or, in some cases, skin irritation. People with mold allergies may have more severe reactions. Immune-compromised people and people with chronic lung illnesses, such as obstructive lung disease, may get serious infections in their lungs when they are exposed to mold. These people should stay away from areas that are likely to have mold, such as compost piles, cut grass, and wooded areas.
If mold is growing in your home, you need to clean up the mold and fix the moisture problem.
As air duct cleaners we test for mold in coils and duct plenums. We are able to test mold at our lab. For more info please contact us.

Atlanta's air quality: Better, but still bad

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Metro Atlanta's air quality has improved but still ranks among the worst in the nation, a new report shows.

The American Lung Association's annual "State of the Air" report found Atlanta had its lowest year-round particle pollution and better ozone levels than last year. But the metro area still ranked 16th worst for particle pollution and 19th worst for ozone.

"Georgia's grades in the State of the Air 2010 report, while still at unhealthy levels in some areas, show improvement from previous years and demonstrate that efforts to clean our air do work," said June Deen, director of advocacy for the American Lung Association in Georgia.

The report found that a decade of cleanup measures, reduction in emissions from coal-fired power plants, and the transition to cleaner diesel fuels and engines have paid off in cutting levels of deadly particle and ozone pollution, especially in the East and Midwest.

"Air pollution remains a serious threat to our nation's health," Deen said. "We can all do more for healthy air. Driving less, not burning wood or trash, and using less electricity are all steps we can take to improve the air we breathe."

Saturday, May 1 marks the start of smog season. Ground-level ozone is more likely to form in warmer months, negatively affecting air quality and human health.

"It may seem like one person can't affect something as large as air pollution, but every small change that Georgians make adds up fast," said Kevin Green, executive director of the Clean Air Campaign. "Breathing is not optional. It's estimated that half of all smog-forming emissions come from tailpipes, so for every car we take off the road, we're one step closer to healthier air."

Tighter federal air quality standards could arrive later this year.

Throughout smog season, the Clean Air Campaign will warn the public of dangerous smoglevels using its color-coded alert system.

Pollen and Spring Cleaning - Air Duct Cleaning is a most .

Extraordinary cold seasons around US has lead to an all time high in pollen this season. Southeast is one of the most horrible affected places with a yellow haze of pollen, hanging in the region persistently.

Usually a pollen calculation of 120 is measured high. This year it has increased up to 5,733 in Atlanta the previous week. This is the second-highest level on record, as per The Weather Channel. The evidenced dips in temperatures the preceding winter in Georgia and Florida is said to have postponed the total pollination procedure and this also means that this pollen surplus will last till early next month. Some parts of Arkansas, Raleigh, N. C, Texas, and Chicago are badly affected. For all the asthma patients, it is a real tough time to fight because pollen tends to make them breathless.

Pollen fog spells sneezes and allergies in many of the populace. As per the Allergy Specialist, Stanley Fineman at the Atlanta Allergy and Asthma Clinic, the number of patients who are allergic to tree pollen has increased enormously.

Dryer Vent Cleaning

Why have the dryer vents cleaned?

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission's 1997 Residential Fire Loss Estimates (latest information available) - 16,700 residential fires originated from dryer vents. 30 deaths and $84 million in property damage resulted from these fires. The previously reported number from 1995 was 13,700. The number of residential fires attributed to dryer vents in on the increase.
Reasons for inspection and cleaning:
  1. Increased drying time?
  2. Is the dryer operating hotter than normal?
  3. Reduces chance of dryer vent fire. When the dryer is used, over time lint will collect and adhere to the inside of the dryer vent walls. The larger the buildup, the larger the risk of having a dryer vent fire.
  4. Reduces "wasted electricity" and "appliance stress". Use of a dryer with a dirty vent can cause the dryer to run longer to dry the same amount of clothes because the hot air being expelled cannot freely exit the vent. Longer drying time takes more electricity and puts added stress on the appliance.
How do you clean the dryer vent ?
Depending on what type of dryer you have - stackable, side-by-side, gas or electric - and how your dryer is vented - through the wall, up through the roof, across the inside of the ceiling, etc. - the basic procedure is the same.
Our service technician will inspect the dryer vent. We use air pressure and agitation tools along with vacuum to clean out the entire vent. Once the cleaning equipment has traveled the length of the vent enough times to thoroughly clean the vent, we'll clean out the connection piece, reattach your dryer and recheck the vent while your dryer is operating. We also have video inspection equipment we can use.

    Ultra Violet Light - A safe and natural way to sanitize the Air in your house 24/7.

    Ultar Violet home air sanitizer uses UV light to purify indoor air

    Ultraviolet Air Sanitizer uses ultraviolet light to neutralize airborne bacteria, molds, and dust mites

    We spend up to 90 percent of our time indoors and according the the Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside our homes is up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. If too little microorganisms can collect to levels that pose health and comfort problems. This problem can be especially serious in energy efficient homes built in the last twenty years. These homes may not allow enough air changes, keeping contaminated air in and fresh air out.

    Installed in the main supply or return duct of a forced air heating or air conditioning system, UV Home Air Sanitizer operates continuously to purify the air in your home 24 hours a day. Emits powerful ultraviolet (UV) light, which sterilizes and reduces airborne microorganisms as they pass through the system.

    The two primary benefits to using UV light are disinfecting air and preventing growth of mold. The UV light radiates a surface to keep mold from growing in that area and disinfects the air stream as it passes through the HVAC system.

    In one pass over the UV lamp, a high disinfection rate is not normally accomplished in the air stream. However, the home's air is recirculated more than 50 times a day during normal operation of the heating or air conditioning system. Continued exposure to UV reduces airborne contamination, improving the indoor air quality of the entire home. With repeated circulation of air through the system, a major disinfection rate is accomplished, making use of UV light very positive.

    UV whole house air purifier helps protect your most valuable asset, your family's health. Ultraviolet purification helps reduce the symptoms of allergies, asthma, and other respiratory problems resulting in less work and school missed due to illness.

    According to Richard Riley, M.D., "...ultraviolet radiation, properly integrated with heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems, shows the most promise as a widely applicable means of air disinfection." The process of ultraviolet purification, used by hospitals, schools, day care centers, restaurants, and hotels, is now available for the homeowner in the Air Health.

    Works on all types of forced warm air furnaces and split unit heat pumps. UV sanitizer is designed for indoor mounting only. Plugs into any standard 120V outlet.

    Improve the air you breathe
    Have you found yourself or family members more prone to allergic reactions and flare-ups recently? Does it always seem like you have nasal irritations, throat congestion or watery eyes?

    If so, you might be inhaling pollutants while inside the safety of your own home and not be aware of it. Your ventilation system could be breeding ground for dust mites and a receptacle for millions of dust particles, pollen, dander, mold and mildew spores. When you

    inhale the air inside your house you also inhale these contaminants, making you that much more susceptible to respiratory illnesses and allergy flare-ups.

    This increased concentration of dust in your ventilation systems can lead to the environment inside your home being up to 100 times more polluted than the outside environment. Whether you’re at home, at school, in a mall or any other enclosed space the air contains c

    ontaminants that are invisible to the naked eye.

    Atlanta Air Experts crew get to work cleaning the entire system, not just vacuuming around the registers and vents. Our crew uses patented equipment to reach through the vents and right in to the ductwork. No part of the system is left untouched, and all dust and grime is sucked out and collected back into the equipment for disposal
    We follow this vacuuming process by using an EPA registered fog agent that kills all traces of germs and bacteria, mold and mildew spores that may still be lurking deep inside your system. Now the air in your home is fresh, clean and pure - the way it should be!
