In the southern US, indoor mold growth is an unspoken epidemic. Each year, emergency rooms take thousands of cases of poisoning from exposure to certain deadly strains of mold. Often, this fungus propagates inside your home without you realizing it. Some people have noses like dobermans, while others’ sense of smell is like comparing a blind person to someone with 20-20 vision. If you happen to fall in the minute camp, then you’re at a downside with detecting mold growth by picking up on the odors early on. Especially if it’s growth inside a wall or in your HVAC duct where you can’t visibly see it as it begins to take hold, being able to smell the stuff goes a long way in determining the source as well as eradicating it once as well as for all. But do not be fooled, even if you find a mold outbreak in your home as well as are convinced you can handle the job, tread carefully if you choose to not get professional assistance. The CDC recommends that any mold outbreak greater than a 10 foot by 10 foot section be left completely to mold specialists with a downside air chamber to prevent spreading it further. But even if the section is only many feet around, you can still spread the spores to other areas of your house, especially if you manage to get any into the a/c unit. Once inside, the mold takes root as well as grows inside your evaporator coil as well as throughout your HVAC duct. Each time the air conditioner turns on, the air moving through the method gets contaminated by the mold growth as well as then can spread even further throughout your home. If you’re not confident you can handle the job yourself without spreading spores, it’s smart to just leave the remediation job to trained professionals.
