How to Address Mold in Your Air Ducts

The first thing that you should know about mold in your air ducts is that whenever you have moisture, there’s the chance of mold. As your air conditioner is used on hot days, cool air will flow through the air vents and ducts. When cold air flows through your air ducts, the moisture in the air can condense in the air ducts themselves.

The same basic principle is at play when you notice beads of water on the side of your cool glass of ice tea in the summertime. Unfortunately, though, moisture in your air vents can open the door to mold and mildew in your home.

How Mold Gets in Air Ducts

Warm and moist environments are considered ideal for mold growth, so eliminating the conditions from which mold can flourish in your home is the first step towards eradicating a mold problem. You’ll notice that mold grows wherever there’s food, warmth, and moisture, as these are the basic ingredients for a mold problem. That’s why mold so often rears its ugly head behind leaking toilets in the bathroom or in the shower. There’s a chance that you have the same kind of mold in your HVAC system if you notice you feel irritation in your sinuses that mysteriously disappears upon going outside.

Mold spores themselves are airborne, so these spores can initially enter your home through doors and windows. Air ducts can act as conduits for cool air as easily as mold. That said, the conditions need to be just right (or wrong!) for mold to develop in your air ducts and around vents. If your ducts and vents prove a hospitable home to mold by offering plenty of moisture and warmth, then you might well have to contact a professional to remove mold from your air ducts. When left untreated, a few mold spores can develop into a colony of mildew that leaves you and your family exposed to serious allergic reactions: itchy eyes, runny noses, headaches, fatigue, and rashes.

How Mold is Removed from Air Ducts

If you’re already dealing with a mold problem, then you probably need a professional to come to your residence and use professional-grade duct cleaning equipment and sanitizer to help eradicate mold from your home. A high-powered vacuum can safely remove debris that can contribute to mold issues from your air ducts without the need to cut through your walls or remove any ducts. After the debris has been removed, a cleaning agent or sanitizer can be applied to your air ducts to further eliminate mold and bacteria, and help to prevent further growth.
