How to tell if your AC Has Mold!
Your AC is prone to Mold.
Fungus, mold, and mildew will form from excess amounts of heat, moisture, and water forming on a surface. From there the spores will grow and embed itself into the system that it is growing out of. This means that A/C units are prone to mold.
It’s important to know how mold can form so that you can properly take care of your AC to ensure you are breathing the best air quality.
The Signs of Mold Forming
Under Wallpaper – IF you have recently put up wallpaper in your home, it is possible for moisture to become trapped behind it. This moisture, combined with glue and heat, can create a subtle petri dish for mold!
Air Conditioner – Besides the vents themselves, it’s easy for your main air conditioning unit and dehumidifiers (if you have them) to capture moisture and become infected with mold.
How to Get Rid of Mold
If it’s mildew, then you can simply scrub it off, and it’s not a problem. Get some hot soapy water and run it through a few times.
However, if it’s mold, then you need to hire a professional. Often mold is on the walls and in the wood which means that you will need it to be professionally treated. It’s very easy for mold to shoot out spores and grow elsewhere.
A Professional mold removal company will not only get rid of the mold but also treat the wood and fix it for you.
