What Mold Is
When you think of mold, you probably think of the substance that forms on food that was left in your pantry, or even your refrigerator, a bit too long. It’s something you just throw out, and you’re done with. True—this is one type of mold.
But mold also develops within your property, and depending on the type of mold it is, it can make you very ill. Mold is a single organism consisting of multicellular fungal filaments. The mold we’re talking about today thrives in humid surroundings—which we are plenty familiar with. Mold and its spores spread quickly and easily, as they’re carried by the airflow within your home.
Where Mold Likes to Hide
So, why is an HVAC company talking about mold? Well, mold growth often starts in cool, damp environments which means it’s not rare for its development to begin in your ductwork or the crawlspaces of which your ductwork exists.
When this occurs, you may likely notice a musty smell, even in a well-maintained home. This is often the leading sign of hidden mold growth, and when this occurs you should never ignore it. On the rare occasion you visually spot the mold on your own, and remove it and dry out the space—you might have taken care of the problem temporarily. But the problem can persist later on.
The Impact of Mold on Your Health
Mold contains invisible airborne spores that are carried in the air current. They settle on the surfaces in your home with no discrimination, and for even the healthiest person can bring about allergy symptoms. Mold exposure is particularly harmful for individuals who suffer from asthma. Even unexpected health problems can arise, such as eye irritation or respiratory issues beyond asthma.
