Air Duct Dust Debris Homeowners and business owners in the Minneapolis St. Paul area usually simply ignore the air ducts that carry warm or cool air throughout their environment. They have other important things to do. Ignoring these important parts of your heating and cooling system, however, can be a serious mistake. Dust, molds, bacteria, and many other contaminants constantly circulate through your home, and collect inside those air ducts. Over time, they build up into a thick coating that continues to feed contaminants back into the rooms, exposing everyone in those rooms to a steady flow of allergens and irritants that can cause health concerns. Knowing what makes up that build up of contaminants is important. Once you know, you’ll understand why the EPA estimates that indoor air can be far more contaminated and unhealthful than outside air.

The powerful fan in our furnace constantly circulates air through our homes and businesses, and that air carries with it a long list of contaminants that make up the dust we see in shafts of sunlight. It is estimated that over 2,500 dust particles settle on every square inch of surface in our homes and other buildings each hour. In the air ducts, which never get dusted like your furniture does, those dust particles build up into a thick coating. That coating constantly feeds dust, debris, and contamination back into your interior spaces. Here’s some of what is in that dust and debris:
