Your HVAC system is designed to heat and cool your home as needed, while your ductwork distributes the conditioned air throughout your living space. As the air circulates it picks up debris along the way, including particulate found in the air and contaminants lurking in the ducts themselves. Much of this matter is made up of dust, pet dander, pollen, and other particles, any of which may lower the quality of your indoor air—but none have more of an impact on the health and safety of your home and family as mold.
If you suspect or have identified the presence of mold in your air ducts, contact the experts at RestoreUnow right away, as the spores can spread quickly and easily to other parts of your home and HVAC system. Call us 24/7 at 301-679-0465 or contact us online to schedule an appointment for air duct mold restoration throughout Maryland.
Common Causes of Air Duct Mold
Mold spores are all around us, indoors and out, but in order for mold to grow it also needs to have a supply of food and moisture. Ductwork provides the ideal environment for mold growth, as the moisture from cool conditioned air meets with the warm indoor air to form condensation. Within a short period of time mold can spread within the network of ducts, and spores may be transported to your living space and take hold in high-moisture areas such as the kitchen, laundry room, bathroom, or basement.

Our Mold Removal Process

1. Thorough inspection and testing of your air ducts to assess the level of contamination.
2. Identify and address the cause of excess moisture that led to the mold.
3. Seal off the surrounding areas to prevent the mold spores from spreading to unaffected areas of the home, using a negative air pressure containment system.
4. Seal and protect the contents of the home.
5. Install a negative air scrubber to remove airborne particles.
6. Disinfect the area using EPA approved antimicrobial/antifungal agents.
7. Use HEPA vacuums to clear all surfaces of dead mold spores.
