While these problems can be caused by any number of pollutants, one likely cause of sudden and inexplicable breathing issues is a filthy air duct. An unchecked or poorly maintained air duct can harbour several health hazards: dust particles, mould, and pests.
The health of people in your home or office is at risk with substandard air quality. Regular air duct maintenance performed by air duct and dryer cleaning professionals is one solution suggested by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA).
