When you have these issues, call Power Vac America to take care of the issue, and to have them take preventative measures to keep it from coming back.
Steps to Air Duct Mold Remediation
Removing and preventing mold is a key part of air duct mold remediation. The first part of the process includes getting rid of the dust, dander, and debris that is already in the HVAC ductwork. They clean each supply duct run with a Rotary Power brush through the supply register in each room. The Rotary Power brush cleans the sidewalls of the ductwork. The negative pressure carries the debris outside. Each supply register is removed, cleaned, and replaced.
They then clean the return ductwork and other areas, as well as address the air handler portion with the evaporator coils, heat exchanger, blower motor, and the supply plenum. All of these must be cleaned as well in order to properly complete the air duct mold remediation. Once all of the cleaning is done, the technicians then push through an anti-microbial fog. This helps to kill off bacteria, which are part of the odor-causing issues. After that, they apply an anti-fungal coating to the inside of your ducts to help inhibit fungus and mold growth.
Part of the issue that helps to have mold and fungus take root is that your ductwork may not be fully sealed. What this means is that outside air can get into your ducts and reduce the efficiency of the system, as well as provide places for mold and fungus to grow. The place where warm and cool air meet produces condensation, which is a great place to grow mold. The technicians will seal up areas along the way as they find them. This will help to inhibit future issues, as well as allow your system to run more efficiently.
