to be thought that the vaccinations children received in early childhood would last a lifetime (except for the Tetanus we should all get every 10 years), but with Diptheria and Whooping Cough cases on the rise, the Centers for Disease Control is recommending another booster during the early teens.

Nobody likes shots, least of all 11 year olds, and that shot is particularly painful, but it does prevent cases of potentially deadly childhood diseases. Here is a very informative video about Diptheria and Indoor Air from the Indoor Air Quality Association, of which we are a proud member.

The bacterium that causes Diptheria is present in our environment and prevention can be helped by keeping air ducts clean and bacteria free. AirTek has years of experience in cleaning and decontamination of ventilation and duct systems in hospitals and other healthcare facilities as well as office buildings, homes and other structures. If you need air duct cleaning services in California, please contact us!
