Mold in Air Ducts means Mold in Your Air
Mold likes to grow in moist places. Your home’s HVAC system creates moisture as it distributes comfortable air throughout your home. If you have a humidifier, you are adding to the mold candy. Your HVAC system could be a place for mold and other viruses to hide. Your air ducts are one of the first places mold grows.
If you are home, self-quarantining, or just social distancing, you might want to get your air ducts and HVAC system checked in order to ensure you are not escalating problems. In fact, you might want to get these checked regardless of whether you are stuck at home or not. The EPA suggests the following: “Do not run the HVAC system if you know or suspect that it is contaminated with mold – it could spread mold throughout the building”.
Should you turn off an air conditioner if you suspect a mold problem in the system? Ideally, yes. Then call in a trusted HVAC and duct system cleaning specialist to perform an inspection. As a licensed HVAC company in the state of Texas, Mr. Duct Cleaner has the technical expertise, equipment, and chemical solutions to clean, remove, seal and treat mold in HVAC systems and air ducts. Ideally, you should have your air ducts cleaned every 3-5 years.
We also promote the installation and use of the Aerus Air Scrubber. This small piece of equipment is installed in your HVAC system and cleans the air and the surfaces in your home.
