Is your home’s indoor air quality affecting your baby’s breathing?
Being a mom is hard work- there is a wealth of information out there for what is best for your baby, and often, a lot of advice can be contradictory. Most moms/to-be moms have read tons of books, researched articles online, attended courses to ensure they are providing the best home environment for their newborns. While this includes a lot of TLC and emotional stimulation, it is imperative to also ensure the right kind of physical environment is in place. A key aspect of that is the indoor air quality of your homes, which can often be addressed with deep AC cleaning and air duct cleaning.
Sometimes even if you’re doing everything right, your baby can still seem uncomfortable and restless while sleeping. This is likely to be linked to your ventilation, or your indoor air quality, that is affecting your child’s ability to sleep peacefully. We all know that dust and newborn babies don’t go well together at all! The mucous membrane of newborn babies, or any growing organisms, are highly- sensitive to even mild irritants. Some moisture in the air might be negligible for us as adults, but babies will notice something is off. Recommended indoor humidity should be around 50%- strong deviations from this level would imply over dryness or over humid, and would be a good time to call in experts, such as Moltocare, to book yourself for an inspection for ac duct cleaning services.
Even if indoor humidity levels are regulated, there are chances your baby is still breathing heavily and is uncomfortable, and thus, the issue hasn’t yet been resolved and other indicators have to be checked:
- Is there a lot of dust forming on surfaces around the house, particularly on the floor?
- Are the windows fogging up often?
- Is there a smell indoors, perhaps from the air released, that has a dampness feel to it?
If the above conditions apply at your home, it is likely a ventilation issue, relating to your AC cleaning and air duct cleaning, perhaps you haven’t had your AC units and duct systems checked in a while!
35%-40% of all indoor contaminants accumulate inside the ductwork of your AC systems. It usually contains dust and dirt that has managed to seep in from the outside, coating from the exhaust pipes and hood and insect waste products. Sometimes, birds can fly into the air duct too, contaminating it further. As a result, our indoor air quality is likely to be more contaminated with bacteria and other harmful microbes than fresh air outside, as the same air is being circulated indoors. It is advisable to engage experts, such as Moltocare, who are professionals in deep AC cleaning, duct cleaning services and other ac services in Dubai, to come and inspect the condition of your AC system and air ducts.
It is just horrifying to imagine babies inhaling these toxins contaminating your home’s indoor air quality. It is also harmful to your health as adults, and any allergies you may develop, you may risk passing it on to your babies, or just not at your best self to attend and care for them. While self cleaning with mops, brushes, vacuums is helpful, unfortunately, if your air ducts and AC systems are clogged with dust and sediments, you are not removing the cause of the problem, just trying to fix the symptoms. Deep AC cleaning and air duct cleaning, followed by AC disinfection is an important investment in securing you and your baby’s health for the long run.
