Mold in Your HVAC System

HVAC System Mold

Mold affects many different areas in your house. When it comes to finding the source of mold, you know that mold has a specific smell. If you can smell it, you know it’s somewhere. However, sometimes you may not see the mold. For some, mold hides in plain sight. Other times, you have to search out mold presence. One place mold hides includes your HVAC system. If you have mold in your HVAC, you need it treated right away. Because your HVAC system moves air and heat throughout your home, it also moves around the mold. Turn to Ram Restoration to help eliminate mold in your HVAC system.

Why It Needs Treated

Mold exposure leads to sickness in you and your family. You need to treat any mold in your home as soon as you notice it. Additionally, because your HVAC moves air and heat throughout your home, it increases the likelihood of spreading mold. That also leads to a higher chance of getting sick compared to mold located in one space in your home.

Keep an eye out on family members if you think you have mold in your home. Different people show different symptoms of mold. However, some of the more common symptoms include a stuffy nose, headaches, and watery eyes. Keep in mind, some of these are also common allergy symptoms. So, if a member of your family complains about these symptoms and they haven’t before, take it seriously and contact a mold removal professional.

Causes of Mold in Your System

Mold grows wherever moisture is present. In some instances, you know what causes mold growth. For instance, a basement flood results in the potential for mold growth, especially if you don’t catch it early. However, sometimes you don’t know the causes for mold growth. Whatever the case, the sooner you catch the growth, the less likely it harms your family.

As for mold growth in your system, some air conditioning coils collect water. Typically, that’s their job. However, if too much water grows and stays there, mold may grow. If mold grows in the coils, the likelihood of mold spreading grows. Once the mold grows, you need to contact a professional to remove it.

Signs of Mold in Your System

Mold has a particular scent. If you happen to smell it in your home, you need to contact a professional mold remediation company to help you remove it. Also, as we’ve already mentioned, if a family member gets sick without explanation, mold growth may be a cause.
