  • Well if you are renting, I beleive it is the responciblity off the owner to clean it. That could be really really bad fo ryou and the kids. You could try talking to your dr. Or see if someone in your area can test for it.

  • Has the landlord had your air ducts cleaned? This should be done yearly for proper maintenance. Also if it has been windy at all in your area it could be kicking up more dirt than normal which would make dirty ducts even worse.
