Preventing Mold During Mold Awareness Month

mold awareness month

Mold Awareness Month reminds us that toxic mold growth can be an issue in any home. Dormant mold spores exist everywhere in nature, including inside the cleanest, most sanitary residences. If triggered by exposure to moisture, however, dormant spores spawn active mold growth that releases millions of airborne microscopic reproductive spores into the indoor environment. Occupants susceptible to the toxins carried by these microorganisms may experience allergic reactions or even chronic illness.

The Air Conditioner-Mold Connection

The link between your central A/C and potential mold contamination is two-fold. Moisture sources inside the unit that may trigger mold growth include both the indoor evaporator coil and the condensate drip pan.

Mold in the Ducts

Dormant mold spores drawn into HVAC ductwork may be triggered by moisture sources like high household humidity in the airflow or water intrusion from an external origin such as a roof leak. As hidden mold flourishes in the dark interior of ductwork, it contiually releases active mold spores into living spaces.
