A sick house is a house with a serious air quality problem. Sometimes these problems are caused by moisture. Moisture plays an important role in promoting the growth and spread of mold.
Molds, as a consequence, produce spores, tiny encased “seeds,” that float in the air. That’s can severely contaminate your home and expose you and your family to mold spores and develop allergic symptoms or asthma and other respiratory complaints such as wheezing, stuffy or runny nose, rashes or hives, and itchy, watery eyes.
Unfortunately, mold can grow inside air ducts if moisture is allowed to settle into place and it’s not easy to notice when this happens. If you can see or smell evidence of mold, you can probably skip having it tested and go straight to remediating it. But if there is no evidence and you want to be sure you don’t have mold, you could hire a qualified mold tester to check for mold.
At Duct Magic we do this kind of tests because we want you to live in the best conditions in your place.
Using the right HVAC filter that stop a good percentage of dust particulates and installing an ultraviolet light to stop the mold from growing back are our suggestions after we see that your air ducts need to be cleaned by mold.
For sure you can try to clean them by yourself, but removing mold is not a very easy process so you may need an air duct company, as Duct Magic that does this for you with advanced technologies and an expert team. Just in this way you can say “Goodbye” to one of the worst enemies of your air ducts and so of your healthy.
