HVAC Mold Remediation
An HVAC mold remediation can knock out the dirt, dust, and debris but they aren’t the only things possibly lurking within your heating and cooling system and its various vents and ducts. According to the CDC, mold is most likely to grow in warm, moist, or damp environments – exactly like what can be found in and around residential or commercial heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. What’s even more problematic about mold in HVAC systems is the ability for spores to quickly spread as heated or cooled air is blown through ducts. This is why HVAC mold remediation isn’t something that should be put off.
When to Call On Mold Remediation Professionals
It may be possible to remove mold limited to certain parts of your HVAC system with vinegar and similar DIY solutions. Yet it’s surprisingly easy to overlook sources of mold, especially in a home, when attempting to tackle the problem yourself. There are also several steps involved with proper mold removal that can be just as easy to skip if you don’t have mold remediation experience. As a general rule, it’s best to call on trained technicians familiar with mold identification and removal if you are dealing with:
• Mold that doesn’t have an obvious source
• Widespread issues with HVAC mold
• Mold growth found near vents or ducts
• Suspected mold infestations extending to your duct insulation
• Fungus that’s not coming off with vinegar or other over-the-counter products
How Professional HVAC Mold Removal Is Done
Mold experts use special equipment and products to identify and remove mold from all parts of an HVAC system. They also know how to treat the source of mold, not just the spots where it’s visible. Lastly, advanced techniques and products are used to ensure the fungus is completely eliminated.
When possible, it’s best to take steps to prevent mold from developing in your HVAC system in the first place. Ways to do this include maintaining your drain pans, regularly changing your air filters so they’re not wet or dirty, and using HVAC-approved mold inhibitors designed to reduce the risk of HVAC mold growth. If you do suspect a problem, mold remediation experts can determine the most effective solution.
HVAC Mold Remediation
Even if nothing major is found during an HVAC mold inspection, the results can provide added peace of mind. If there is a mold problem and it’s corrected, it’s best to have another inspection done to make sure there are no further issues. An HVAC cleaning and restoration expert can perform a thorough evaluation and offer advice on how to prevent mold from coming back after it has been removed from your HVAC system and its related ducts, vents, and components.
If you already have one which has not been serviced in a while then you should call Pur-Vent LLC at (919) 702-7087 to get it cleaned as older systems tend to accumulate and recirculate air pollutants and can also lead to premature replacement of parts if left unchecked.
