Air Duct Mold Removal or Replacement
We Provide Air Duct Mold Removal or Replacement
Specializing in Residential, Commercial, and Health Care Systems
Often when cleaning HVAC systems in residential or commercial buildings, Air Care & Restoration finds mold present. Mold growth is always related to a source of moisture which may be a result of poor design, inadequate insulation of ductwork in unconditioned spaces such as crawl spaces or attics, or intrusion of moisture from an outside water source.
Mold in an HVAC system can be a threat to indoor air quality since the HVAC system is designed to move air and as a result, can spread spores potentially contaminating other parts of the building and thus should be corrected immediately.
- The first problem is to correct the moisture problem to prevent the return of mold.
- Once this is corrected, the mold and spores must be removed.
- For metal surfaces, this is easily carried out, but for porous or flexible ductwork, this is difficult and in many cases impractical. In these cases, the duct work is most easily replaced.
If a replacement is not an option, there are some EPA approved encapsulants which may be applied; however, their effectiveness diminishes over time and mold spores may be released over time as the encapsulant erodes.
