What is Lurking in Your Ducts
Reading time: 1 min 4 sec
Mold in heating ducts is a serious problem. Of course, household mold is never a good thing, no matter where in the home it's found. Mold exposure has been linked to health effects and it can eat away at some building materials, including wood. There are a few reasons mold in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning ducts is particularly problematic, though. We'll tell you why it's such a bad thing and what to do if you think you may have mold in your heating ducts.
The SERVPRO Duct Cleaning Process
- The method starts with the use of proprietary devices, such as a roto-scraper, which automatically adapts to the shape and diameter of the duct when passing through it, eliminating debris and filth before vacuuming begins.
- The debris is then moved from the ducting to a 16-gallon container using an efficient push-pull air distribution and collection system.
- A HEPA filtration system filters the air, eliminating 99.97 percent of the contaminants in the airstream. HEPA filters collect debris and help to keep the air safe.
- A sealant or coating substance can be sprayed as an optional process to resolve odor or microbial issues.
- To extract odors or debris, filters will be washed or replaced.
