Sometimes excess moisture gets into your air ducts and causes mold to grow. This moisture can have a number of causes including: humid climates combined with poor/faulty ventilation, an HVAC unit that’s too big for your home, and air duct leaks.
Some of the common signs of mold in your air ducts are an unexplained musty smell, continued and unexplained illness (including headaches, runny nose, watering/itchy eyes, throat or nose irritation, nausea, fatigue, dizziness), signs of mold or rust around vents. If you notice any of these signs, you can lift the air vent covers and peek inside to see if you notice any mold growth inside the ducts; use a flashlight to help you see better.
If you do notice any mold growth in your air ducts, or even if you don’t but you still suspect that you might have mold, contact an HVAC professional immediately to have your air ducts checked out. Mold growth in your air ducts is something that needs to be addressed immediately because if left unchecked, it can cause you to become very sick and it can cause serious damage to your home.
You should not try to clean the mold yourself, as the mold may go farther into the air duct than you can see or reach. Also, household cleaning items are usually not ideal for this type of cleaning anyways. It’s best to leave it up to a professional to have your air ducts cleaned.
