Are you noticing musty odors when stepping into your home? Often this is a sign of mold infestation in your HVAC system. Spores are usually too small to see until the problem has spread throughout the system. If you are beginning to see mold through the vents or around the ducts, then the situation has become severe and you need an air duct mold removal service.
Signs of Mold Build Up in Your HVAC System
- Strong musty odor throughout your home or at least one or two adjacent rooms
- Irritation of nose, throat and eyes after turning on AC unit
- Runny nose, rashes and watering eyes
- Unexplainable headaches
- Nausea, fatigue or dizziness when at home
- Visualizing mold growth on vents or air ducts
Mold develops due to the presence of water vapor that does not fully evaporate causing droplets to collect. Moist environments are prone to mold development, especially when these droplets mix with pet dander, dead skin cells, dirt, dust and pollen. Switching on your furnace or AC unit circulates these spores throughout your home and becomes part of the air that you and your family breathe. Mold contaminants are particularly notorious for causing allergies, skin reactions, and long-term illnesses. The very young and elderly are particularly vulnerable. The EPA considers mold infestations to be a health hazard.
