Poor Indoor Air Quality Can Be Excellent Headache Trigger
Date:6/3/2008

DUCTZ offers advice in recognition of National Headache Awareness Week

ANN ARBOR, Mich., June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the National Headache Foundation (NHF), the first week in June is Headache Awareness Week, and DUCTZ Indoor Air Professionals, the nation's leading air duct cleaning business, is advising consumers on the relationship between poor indoor air quality and headache triggers. According to the NHF and a report entitled Indoor Air Pollution, published by the American Lung Association (ALA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and the American Medical Association, the following are indoor air quality issues that can be major headache triggers:
1. Carbon Monoxide exposure: When a heating, ventilation, and air

conditioning (HVAC) system is not functioning properly, it can leak

Carbon Monoxide in to the residence, which can cause headaches among

other symptoms. DUCTZ recommends having your HVAC system inspected

annually.

2. Environmental Tobacco Smoke: A complex concoction of over 4000

chemicals, many being toxic, environmental tobacco smoke can wreak

havoc on the health of those who experience frequent exposure.

Contrary to popular belief, ventilating a smoking area with common

methods such as opening a window does not remove the dangerous

carcinogens from the air. The best way to prevent tobacco smoke from

triggering a headache or causing any of the other ill

side-effects is to avoid exposure, and to insist that smoking be done

outdoors.

3. Sick Building Syndrome (SBS): Common in office and apartment

buildings, SBS refers to the situation in which the population of a

building shares similar symptoms, and experiences the alleviation of

symptoms upon removal from the shared environment. A contaminated HVAC

system can be a contributor to this situation, and one of the chief

physical complaints is headaches. If you suspect SBS in your office or

apartment building, contact your building manager promptly.

"As indoor air professionals, the DUCTZ family sees it as our duty to go beyond HVAC reconditioning and restoration to look out for the overall well-being of our customers," said John Rotche, President of DUCTZ. "It is our hope that this advice will help the mission of National Headache Awareness Week, and help our customers avoid a potentially painful situation."
