It Doesn’t Mean That You Are a Bad Housekeeper if You Need Mold RemovalSome types of mold can trigger strong allergic reactions and even cause neurological damage in elderly adults or small children. Moreover, extensive mold growths can cause the market value of your home to plummet. Yet, many people don’t know what can be done to prevent mold.

A common place for mold development is on air conditioning vents. If you see it, take immediate action by calling our mold removal specialists at Spangler Restoration to assess the situation.

Mold on your air conditioning vents does not mean that you are a bad housekeeper. It merely indicates that there are areas of excessive humidity or moisture that are creating a perfect breeding ground for mold spores. This source of moisture, along with dirt and dust in your ductwork, needs to be addressed urgently by one of our mold removal technicians.

First, the ducts will be professionally cleaned. However, if the source of moisture is not addressed, there will be another problem in the near future. Therefore, our technician will also inspect your HVAC system to check for poor drainage or plumbing leaks. He or she will also give the system a complete tune-up.

If it turns out that the problem is excessive humidity in your home (more than 55%) installing a dehumidifier is essential. Again, your home comfort specialist will make a suitable recommendation for your situation.

To learn more about mold removal and mold prevention in your home, read this informative publication from the EPA. And remember, mold damages whatever it grows on. The longer it is allowed to grow, the more damage it will cause!
