Dirty air ducts can be a fire hazard. A commercial building located in Orange County unfortunately had a fire happen in their location. Yesterday there was an explosion in the city of La Habra. Unfortunately there were employees that were injured in this incident. Many thought that the explosion was caused by chemicals or other hazardous components. However, once it was investigated, the fire began and the explosion sparked from the air conditioning ducts.Any residue, dust and other components can spark a fire.

Over time, all the dust, dirt and other materials that build up can cause an ignition. Possible lint might have also build up over time and lint is also a very dangerous material if exposed to heat.
