Air Conditioning Cleaning & Asthma

Air Conditioning Cleaning and Asthma 

Respiratory conditions, like asthma, impair the normal functioning of the human airways. The airways include the lungs and the air passages that are responsible for transferring air from the nose and mouth to the lungs. These conditions can be acute (short term) or even chronic (long lasting). They cause problems in breathing and lead to ill health. In severe cases, they can lead to disability or even death.

Air conditioning and asthma: Making the connection

Although there are many asthma triggers (things that can cause an asthmatic attack), the most common triggers are air impurities. While there is not much that can be done about the outdoor air, the quality of indoor is a totally different matter.

Poor indoor air quality

Poorly maintained air condition units provide poor indoor air that is not sanitised. This will facilitate the growth of mould, bacteria and fungi. Also, the amount of impurities in the air will increase. All these are asthmatic triggers. This means that individuals that suffer from asthma are more likely to get attacks. This is a very terrifying fact considering that most people spend about 70-90 percent of their time indoors. Mould Free Guarantee
