Something to watch out for in your home is mold. Mold can easily work its way into your HVAC system. When you have your HVAC system running during the summer months, there’s a good chance that there will be condensation and humidity. If there is too much humidity, it will be difficult for all that moisture to evaporate which makes the perfect environment for mold growth. Especially if you have dirty ductwork with all kinds of dust and debris, mold will thrive in these conditions. This is why it’s essential to have your ductwork properly cleaned and sanitized to prevent mold growth, allow for good air quality, and keep your HVAC system running at maximum efficiency. A way to tell if you have a mold problem is to sniff your air vents. If you smell mold, then you likely have a mold problem inside your ductwork. You will want to call the professionals right away to clear the mold from your ductwork and your household. You certainly do not want any mold to remain in your household as it can be very dangerous to your health and also the health of your pets if you have any. Mold can cause serious respiratory issues and can even become as serious as internal bleeding. When you call the professionals, they will test for mold, including black mold. They will use a mold killing agent and mold inhibitor to prevent mold from growing back. To be sure you never face such a problem again in the future, it is very important to maintain your ductwork and air vents regularly.
