It’s commonly believed that the flu can only spread through coughing and sneezing, but research from this year has shown that the virus can remain present in the air for minutes or even hours.
This spells trouble for homeowners who rely on their HVAC system. After all, an efficient HVAC system encourages that most of the air in the home is recirculated throughout. That means stubborn viruses and germs can take a ride through the air circulation, thus increasing the risk of exposure. Aside from the flu, poor indoor air quality can also spread colds and pollutants that aggravate allergy and asthma symptoms.
But that doesn’t mean you and your HVAC system are powerless against these contaminants. In this post, we’ll show you the steps to giving your home a deep clean and how to even fight back against germs.
