Long Island Central Vacuums

A clean home in winter is vital to reducing asthma risks.

As the winter season has officially begun, Long Island-based DuraVac is cautioning all households that have an asthma sufferer to take extra care in ensuring that the household environment is free of any and all potential threats to the well-being of the asthma-afflicted.

Winter brings cold weather and keeps us inside where indoor triggers such as dust mites, pet allergens, smoke and viruses can worsen asthma symptoms. While pet allergens can be readily identified and dealt with quickly, the others are all stealth-like by nature and each need to be addressed separately. Oil and gas fueled heating and cooking systems each can give off fumes and occasionally smoke that can create lingering effects that will cause distress for asthma sufferers. While smoke can easily be seen or smelt, there is often residue from the smoke that can infiltrate fabrics, window covers and rugs. Additionally, dust mites can also hide easily in these same target areas and increase the issues that cause asthma symptoms to be worse than they need to be.

Another potential household infiltrator is the presence of viruses that can be found on most common household surfaces as well as in fabrics. Each of these three on their own are dangerous to the well-being of asthma-sufferers but the likelihood that two or all three can be present in a single household is real. To address these issues, homeowners need to ensure that they either have a system in place to make cleaning these infiltrators out. The best system to have is a central vacuum system which allows its full cleaning power to be easily applied to all rooms.

Central vacuum systems are designed so that a centralized suction source can be easily deployed throughout the house easily while also providing a centralized receptacle for all of the debris, allergens and other organic materials are safely captured and stored. From this central location the offending debris can easily be extracted and removed from the house. The DuraVac team can not only help you find the best system for your needs but also can install and service the system to ensure that it works perfectly every time, to help keep all of the household members healthy as well as ensure that any asthma-sufferers in the house can rest easily knowing that the potential problems can be minimized if not completely removed.
