VENT CLEANING THAT BENEFITS YOU!
DID YOU KNOW?
Your home is constantly collecting dust, dirt, dead skin, pet dander, hair, and other debris from everyday use. Even if you vacuum and dust frequently, a lot of those particles are being lifted into the air and circulated through your air ducts, rather than dumped in your garbage can.
When was the last time you had your vents professionally cleaned? If you just moved in, and your ducts were never cleaned by the previous owner, add years, possibly decades of their dust, skin, and hair into the mix. You probably have a pretty good and grotesque picture as to what’s living in your vents. All of those things are constantly being circulated back into the air you and your family breathe while at home.

An obstruction in the ventilation system caused by lint, dust and dirt creates irregularities in the flow of air. A high content of pollution in your vents will also produce dirtier air. Spending time at home with polluted air increases the risk of respiratory problems for you and your family.

There’s much to know about mold in your ventilation system and how it affects indoor air quality. As mentioned above, your HVAC system circulates any debris in your air ducts throughout the air in your home; including mold spores. Keep your family, employees, and visitors safe by having your air ducts thoroughly cleaned and remediated if you suspect mold in your ductwork or can visibly see mold growing on air vents. Keep reading below for answers to the most commonly asked questions about mold and air ducts.
HOW DOES MOLD GET INTO AIR DUCTS?
Mold spores simply need moisture to grow. Wisconsin’s ever changing whether makes your HVAC systems susceptible to moisture, and in turn mold growth. Mold spores can enter your home through a number of unavoidable ways, including blown in through open windows or carried in on clothing or pets. If your HVAC system is on, the spores are pulled into the ductwork and will begin to grow if there is moisture it can take hold of.
HOW CAN YOU TELL IF THERE IS MOLD IS IN YOUR HVAC SYSTEM? WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?
The three most obvious indicators of mold include:
Smell – is there a musty or sour smell coming from the vents?
Visible mold – can you see spots or growing mold on your vents or register?
Excess moisture – if you know there is excessive moisture in your vents, or a disaster has most definitely left water in your ductwork, its likely mold has started to grow.
Mold in your air duct system will cause the same symptoms as mold anywhere else in your home. Symptoms to mold are similar to that of hay-fever, including a stuffy or runny nose, itchy eyes, wheezing, and even rashes or hives. Most often mold exposure causes allergic reactions and asthma complaints.
