Having the best air quality in your home is important. This will allow you and your family to breathe easier and also have a home that is comfortable to be in. If you or a family member is feeling ill often, there might be a possibility of a large amount of mold and mildew that had collected and could be the culprit. Air crossing with this much mold and mildew will definitely carry mold and mold spores throughout your home via your air ducts and vents. That is why it is important to have the HVAC system and air conditioner inspected regularly.
Molds are usually not a problem indoors, unless mold spores land on a wet or damp spot and begin growing. Molds produce allergens, substances that can cause allergic reactions, irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances. Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Allergic responses include hay fever-type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash. Allergic reactions to mold are common and the reactions can be immediate or delayed. Molds can also cause asthma attacks in people allergic to mold. In addition, mold exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of both mold-allergic and non-allergic people.
Having your HVAC system inspected twice a year is the ideal situation for most people. This will allow us to inspect the unit for your home. We can also make sure your system is running effectively and efficiently and that no issues are apparent, ensuring your system will work when needed. It will ensure your system is clean of debris and in this case, mold or mildew formations and thus avoiding any of the potential health risks associated with mold or mildew. You may also want to install an air purification system to your HVAC system. It will greatly reduce, if not completely eliminate up to 99% of mold, bacteria, odors, viruses, and smoke. This will leave behind clean, fresh and odor free air.
