What Is HVAC CLEANING?
Professional duct cleaning services use specialized blowers, vacuums, and brushes to clean out the supply, intake, and return ducts throughout your home. Duct cleaning also involves a thorough cleaning of the air handler, registers, grilles, fans, motors, housings, and coils of the HVAC system.
Do mold spores frighten you when you see them growing on your registers or filters? It should. Mold spores could be in your AC system if you see them on your registers Mold spores are like pollen spores - they float in the air. Air circulation from powerful air conditioning systems sucks those spores into the air returns, over the AC coils and out through the ceiling registers. That's when you see that dark growth on the ceiling registers its time to get the system professionally cleaned and sanitized. If you simply wipe it off, then the underlying cause will make it return. Most problems with mold result in the need for HVAC cleaning and sanitizing.

Mold grows with a water source and food such as cellulose or paper. Most soft wood trim and drywall is an ideal food source. It only needs water. Mold spores can also grow on metal AC registers and in plastic or foil-based ductwork. The spores are 'sticky' and adhere to these surfaces if there is a regular temperature change.

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOUR AIR IS CONTAMINATED?
Temperature And Visually Seeing Contaminants
If you can see mold on surfaces and it's been over two days, then the mold body, the mycelium, has already started to spread their spores. If you get headaches, dry mouth or your allergies flair up abnormally inside your home then its likely that mold spores are to blame. If you can see the mold then we can treat it and kill it. If you can't see it then you need to have an air test done by a licensed mold hygienist*. HVAC is subject to hot and cold temperatures when you override the constant temperature setting to save money by turning the system off during the day if you are away and on at night in North Haven, CT to cool off. In North Haven, CT we have high humidity and humidity means the percentage of water vapor in the air.
Temperature change creates condensation. Put a glass of iced water on a table and see the water vapor condense out and drip. Humidity is enough of a water source for spores to grow. Spores are naturally occurring both outside and inside the home as well as being brought in from contaminated water like toilet overflows, sewer backups or floods.
If you keep HVAC temperature too cold, then that too can start condensation and as the cold air meets the warm air around windows and outside doors. Mold can also grow from seasonal changes as well. It's best to consider having your HVAC system ductwork clean and sanitized every few years as a preventative measure and keeping the system at a constant temperature. There is little point in having an HVAC cleaning and sanitization while active mold remains in the property. Mold must be treated and killed first on all affected surfaces before the HVAC system is cleaned.
Our HVAC duct cleaning machines are manned by two experienced experts who follow a set process. Before we start work, we will require access to the property for about 4 hours without pets and children in the home.
