Is Mold Growing in Your Jacksonville Home Ductwork?

12/19/2018 (Permalink)

Inadequately maintained ventilation systems are a breeding ground for mold. Make sure yours is inspected regularly.

Mold Remediation for the Ductwork in Your Jacksonville Home

When you’ve had a water leak in your Jacksonville home, you may now also have mold lurking in hidden areas, such as your ductwork. A trained eye is needed to help you to find it and clean it out, as mold, especially in ductwork, can cause health effects for you and your family as it gets spread throughout your home.  

You should not hesitate to get mold remediation services in Jacksonville, as mold continues to grow as it is allowed to sit. SERVPRO technicians can come to your rescue quickly with the expertise and tools needed to find the mold and then clean it, so it does not spread further.  

Sometimes the biggest culprit for poor indoor air quality is an inadequately maintained ventilation system. Throw mold into the mix, and you have a much bigger problem. Signs that dangerous fungi are lurking in your ductwork include a musty odor and visible mold growth around your heating and cooling system ducts. Even if you cannot see the mold, but suspect it, calling us right away is the smart thing to do.  

SERVPRO staff have special tools we can use to detect any hidden moisture and mold. Cleaning the mold, yourself is never a good idea, because doing so sends spores out into the air, worsening an already problematic situation. Our certified and trained techs can efficiently and safely remove the mold from the air ducts in your home in a few hours. We insert suctioning devices on the climate-control vents, then use vacuuming devices to suction mold from the vents or air ducts. To verify that your home is safe, we collect mold contamination from the connectors and hoses and keep them sealed in bags.  

SERVPRO of Jacksonville South understands that getting the mold cleaned from your home in Southside, Town Center, or Gate Parkway is essential to do thoroughly and quickly to prevent further issues. Reach out to us immediately when you suspect a problem by dialing (904) 762-8066, and we can restore your home to the safe environment it was before.
