Due to manufacturing being Hamilton’s biggest economic activity, duct cleaning in Hamilton became a necessity in recent years. With Sixty percent of Canada’s steel produced in Hamilton, it is no wonder that people dubbed it the Steel Capitol of Canada. Recent reports indicated that Hamilton residents are at a slightly higher risk of dying from air pollution-related causes, identifying five high-risk areas in particular: QEW/403, Jones Road and Arvin Avenue area, Wentworth North around the Eva Rothwell Centre, Eastport Drive (east side), McAnulty Boulevard.
A 2011 air quality assessment revealed that air pollutants all played a role in about 186 premature deaths, 395 respiratory hospital admissions and 322 cardiovascular admissions to local health care facilities, annually. The hazardous waste included:
- nitrogen dioxide
- ground-level ozone
- inhalable particulate matter
- sulphur dioxide
- carbon monoxide
When to clean your duct
Using ducts in heating, ventilation and air conditioning, allows air to enter and exit areas, ensuring acceptable air quality inside a building as well as providing thermal regulation. Duct cleaning removes layers of built-up dirt, dust, debris, mites, pollen and other contaminants that accumulate over time. You need to clean your ducts when:
- you experience physical symptoms such as headaches, sneezing, irritability, dry or burning sensation in your eyes, nose and throat, nasal congestion or sinus problems during or after sleep
- living spaces remains dusty even after cleaning
- stale or smelly air comes from your furnace
- air flow is restricted from the ducts into areas
