Air duct mold removal or replacement improves indoor air quality. 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.
If a replacement is not an option, there are some EPA approved encapsulants that may be applied; however, their effectiveness diminishes over time and mold spores may be released as the encapsulant erodes.

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.
