Black Spots on Vent Might Be Mold

Even a little black dirt could be bad
Don’t let the small black spots become big

Is there black soot like tracks starting to form around your vents?  Do you keep cleaning the dark spots off your HVAC vents and they keep reappearing?  Do you want the good news or the bad news?

Let’s start with the bad news.  Dark spots of dirt appearing on your vents is most likely a sign of fungal growth and could possibly be mold.  More bad news? It is difficult to clean this off and have the mold go completely away by yourself.  Even worse?  If you ignore this, you can possibly have your vent problem go from a dark rim to a “v shape” of black mold across your ceiling.   Drywall is porous and mold loves to entrench itself in it.  You cannot clean this with a brush and bleach or vinegar.  (no matter what your crazy uncle may say).  NOTE: Mr. Duct Cleaner DOES NOT clean dry wall.  If mold has traveled to your drywall, hire an experienced person to repair.

Now the good news.  Mr. Duct Cleaner is very experienced at cleaning mold out of HVAC systems.  We use professional equipment that knocks the mold out of your ducts and vacuums it away into a HEPA filter.   If your vents have mold on them, you need to do more than just clean your ducts.  Mr. Duct Cleaner can clean your entire HVAC system.  We open your indoor HVAC unit and clean the plenum, the blower fan, and the HVAC coils so that when your system is turned on, there will be no fungal or mold spores running through your ducts.  We can apply a sealant to the boots of your vents that tend to accumulate mold. This deters further growth.   Once the entire system is cleaned, we can fog your HVAC unit and ensure that any living spores are deactivated. (if repair of drywall is needed this should be done immediately following the HVAC system cleaning).

Want to continually have your HVAC system cleaning spores out of the air?  Mr. Duct Cleaner can install an Aerus Air scrubber that sends purification warriors through your air to fight virus, allergens and mold spores.
