Mold is never welcome indoors. Whether it is your office building, apartment complex, school, or home, no one should ever have to suffer from the health effects and building damage that mold can give. If you see the following signs of mold in the HVAC system, call the professionals at North Arundel Contracting, and be sure to see the preventative tips below!
How Mold Infests an HVAC System
Contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as a completely mold-free home or commercial building. Mold spores exist naturally in the air and spread where they please. They germinate only in the right conditions, typically in a moist, dark area with some form of organic matter on which to feed. If your air conditioning or heater contains moisture and dust, it is possible for mold to begin to grow. As the system runs, the forced air can move the mold spores throughout it.
Signs of Mold in the HVAC System
If you suspect that there is mold in the HVAC system, you can know by several key signs. First, you will likely notice a strong, musty odor. Depending on the mold type, it can smell like a strong chemical. Another sign is leaking or puddling water around the system. An excess of water along with a musty odor is a clear indicator of mold. Other signs include visible mold growth around the system’s vents and an increase in health issues. Mold is toxic and often causes dizziness, vertigo, nausea, coughing, sneezing, respiratory discomfort, and headaches.
