The main purpose of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) technology is to maintain good internal air quality. However, cooling and heating systems can be severely affected if mold grows around vents and gets into air ducts.
One of the quickest ways for the fungus to spread through a building is via an HVAC system. Unless it is regularly cleaned and checked for mold, spores are breathed in potentially causing skin and eye irritations and exacerbating problems for those with allergies and asthma.
Once mold colonies get into an HVAC system it can be difficult to remove them without the proper tools and knowledge.
One of the principal causes of HVAC mold is the cooling process. During warmer weather cool air is sent through the ducts, and moisture condenses on the sides creating a fertile breeding ground for mold to grow.
Among the sources of moisture are air leaks in the ductwork that can let in water. Once a mold infestation takes hold it doesn’t take too long before spores are being blown throughout a building.
HVAC mold removal is a job you can do yourself. There are a number of chemicals and cleaners on the market that can be used. Some will be better at removing the fungus than others, depending on the species and the extent of the infestation.
If you are going to take the DIY approach you’ll need to wear protective clothing such as a mask, coveralls and thick gloves.
It is a time-consuming task and although homeowners can effectively remove mold from visible areas, in most cases, mold is a stubborn intruder and unless it has been completely eradicated will come back. You could soon discover that you are fighting a losing battle.
