Will Air Duct Cleaning Remove Mold?

Air Duct One of the most pressing issues with air quality and allergy problems is mold. Mold can even be life-threatening if there is long-term exposure. Most people don’t realize that they are even breathing in mold spores inside their home, office, or school. People may only realize that they are being exposed to mold when they see it growing in or around the area or begin to have reactions to exposure. One of the most asked questions about mold exposure is whether or not the HVAC system can contain mold?

Mold In The HVAC Unit?

The HVAC unit and its ductwork can harbor and grow mold. The reason is that the unit sucks in air from the space, cools it, and then recirculates it throughout the interior of the home or business. If there is mold growing in any part of the area, the spore becomes airborne and are sucked into the unit. Once inside the unit, they collect and grow on the different parts of the unit including inside of the ductwork. This is one of the ways a home can be overcome with mold growth. In time, the mold can grow through all parts of the HVAC unit as well as the home.

Prevention Is The Key

The best way to prevent mold from growing inside of the HVAC unit and the home is to schedule regular maintenance. Each time the weather changes from hot to cold or vice versa, have a professional contractor come and inspect and clean all parts of the unit.
