Sign of Mold and Mildew in Your Air Ducts

Here’s what mold’s presence feels like:

Unpleasant Odor

Despite performing cleansing and other hygienic practices, if your space stinks, it might be a signal of mold growth. This smell will be clearly evident upon activation of your HVAC system.

Sudden Allergies

Are any or all of your family members facing allergic reactions such as sneezing, coughing, or others, especially indoors? This might be due to respiration in the air coming from infested ducts.

Visible Indications

Though detecting mold in air ducts can be difficult, you can still peek through the parts of the ductwork, such as vents and grilles, to look for greenish or black spots.

Reduced Workability

You might notice a decline in heating and cooling due to unexplained reasons. This can be related to mold contamination in the air ducts. The fungus acts as an obstacle in the airflow and lowers its efficiency.

What Causes the Mold Growth in Your Air Duct?

Mold spores are naturally present in the air, and if some of them enter the air ducts and settle down in a favorable condition, they will infest the entire duct. Here are some of the circumstances that encourage mold growth.

Maintenance Negligence

HVAC systems work all year to provide the residents with a comfortable environment and thus require regular maintenance. If cleaning or replacing filters or other parts is avoided, the air ducts will become a perfect space for mold to live and spread.

Higher Humidity

Humid spots create a favorable environment for mold to expand roots. If you live in a humid region, there are high chances of this contamination in the air ducts.

Clogged Drain Pans

If the drain pans in your HVAC system become clogged with debris or algae, water can back up and enter the ducts, increasing moisture levels.

Water Leaks

Dampness develops fungus, and a leaking HVAC system directly invites mold. This could be due to the system’s internal damage or from other nearby cracked water pipes.
