When mould – a fungus – gets out of control, it can start to impact your family’s health. While mould is often visible indoors where there has been water damage or excessive moisture, it can hide from view inside your HVAC system where it can thrive unchecked.
Mould in your ventilation system is almost impossible for you to detect without the right tools and knowledge of what you’re looking for, which is why you need a professional. Once mould has formed in your system, it can travel easily – like a virus – to other areas of the home through forced air vents.
The problem is that airborne mould spores are easily breathed in and can complicate health issues such as asthma and bronchitis, while also triggering coughing, shortness of breath and even a sore throat. You can have the mould cleaned from ductwork, but if you don’t know the underlying causes of the mould, you may find the problem returning again and again.
As a Ventilation System Mould Remediator, Stephen can identify mould issues and advise how to fix the problem. While he has the training to do so, Stephen doesn’t remove the mold himself. Why? It means you can count on an unbiased report – he has no incentive to tell you that your home has a mould issue if it doesn’t, so he won’t recommend additional work unless it’s warranted.
Don’t let mould be an unwanted visitor in your home! If family members are experiencing some health concerns, be sure to call Stephen at Integrated Clean Air Services to have a closer look for mould. Even if you have no symptoms currently, it’s best to have your systems inspected regularly to catch a problem before it starts to affect you or your loved ones.
