Air Duct Mold Removal – Houston TX
Having mold in the HVAC system can be very scary. Mold is a fungus that grows in dark and moist places, so the air duct system is the perfect environment for it to grow. Mold Removal is needed when visual mold is growing in the ducts, coils, blower or any part of the air system. If left untreated, mold will release spores into the indoor air, if inhaled could cause some negative health effects. Houston is considered a higher risk area for developing mold in the air ducts because of the high humidity air content it has. As water condenses on the inside of the air ducts, mold spores, which are everywhere, attach themselves to the ducts and start growing. Once a colony is established, it will release those nasty spores that will be carried by the air flowing through the ducts, and into your home.
Mold Health Effects and Symptoms
Mold spores hold a toxic payload used for repelling other mold colonies, but if ingested by humans could cause some devastating health effects. There are many kinds of mold, some more toxic then others, but all are potential allergens. If mold is inhaled repeatedly over time, it could cause:
- Asthma Attacks
- Chronic Coughing
- Chronic Sneezing
- Upper Respiratory Infections
- Sinus Infections
- Headaches & Migraines
