3 Clues Your Business’s Air Ducts Have Mold

2/21/2018 (Permalink)

Mold can develop almost anywhere inside your Anaheim, CA business. However, one of the most common places it can hide is inside your heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. The moisture inside the ducts can provide a perfect environment for mold to grow. HVAC cleaning can eliminate this issue, and there are several signs that you may need these services right away.

1. You Consistently Smell Musty Odors

If you get complaints from your employees or customers about musty odors in your building, especially during the summer, your HVAC system might have a mold issue. When mold grows unchecked and out of sight, it can cause a musty, dirty odor as it spreads. It also releases mycotoxins that can cause an unpleasant smell. If this smell grows stronger when you use the air conditioner in your building, you may want to call to have your air ducts inspected and cleaned.

2. Visible Ductwork Is Discolored

Mold can appear in several different forms and in different colors. If you suspect your building has a mold issue, it is a good idea to check external drip pans, vent covers and other visible HVAC areas. If you see any kind of discoloration that is not rust, you may want to call in a mold remediation company to perform HVAC cleaning instead of trying to do it your own.

3. You Find Mold in Other Areas

Humid, rainy weather and minor floods can cause mold to take hold inside your business. Because this fungus can spread when spores are released, the ductwork inside your HVAC system might be vulnerable. Cleaning vents can help slow the spread, but you may want to get your building’s system checked to locate and eliminate the source of any mold in the ductwork.

HVAC cleaning can prevent the growth and spread of mold in your Anaheim, CA commercial building’s ductwork. Not only can it provide you with peace of mind, your employees and customers will enjoy a clean, healthy environment each day.
