How To Get Rid Of Fungus From Air Ducts

A strong, musty odor in your commercial building in Sun City Summerlin, NV, can be a sign of black mold growth. If you can't see the growth on the wall or if the smell is pervasive throughout your building, it's likely in your HVAC ducts. The following steps can help you get rid of the fungus and improve your building's air quality.

1. Call Specialists

Mold remediation specialists are trained, licensed professionals who can handle a mold problem swiftly and thoroughly. They usually arrive within hours of your call, assess the situation and formulate a plan to resolve the issue. They can get rid of the growth so that it is less likely to return.

2. Seal Area

While mold remediation of your air ducts is in progress, the air flow to the rest of the building will have to be closed off. This keeps the high concentration of black mold spores contained so that you do not start to have problems elsewhere.

3. Disinfect Ducts

The goal by the end of the process is to have clean ducts and to ensure that the fungus has not spread to the insulation around the HVAC system. Technicians use industrial strength disinfectant or other processes to remove the mold.

4. Reduce Moisture

Mold doesn't grown in your air ducts unless there is excess moisture or humidity. To prevent the return of mold, specialists can pinpoint the specific problem that led to the growth. The can also advise you on how to lower the moisture in both the ducts and the air in your building to keep mold growth from returning.
Don't ignore the signs of black mold, especially if you notice that its musty smell permeates the air throughout your building. As soon as you suspect there's a problem, you need to call someone who can fix it. Quick response time can help solve the problem and keep it from coming back.
