Mold in your air conditioner can be dangerous?

Mold will release spores that are easily inhaled if it grows in your home. Molds can cause nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, coughing or wheezing, eye irritation, or, in some cases, skin irritation, according to the CDC. Mold allergy sufferers can experience more serious symptoms. People with weakened immune systems and those suffering from chronic lung disease

Mold that grows in an air conditioner isn’t really more harmful than mold that grows elsewhere in your home. The aim of the HVAC ducts is to disperse air throughout the building, while the role of an air conditioner is to spread cool air throughout a room. They can effectively spread mold spores through an entire room or the entire house if they become infected with mold.

If the concentration of mold spores is high enough, you will have a mold problem all over the house, rather than only in one room, and you will be inhaling mold spores even while sleeping.

I was contacted promptly after inquiry, Eli was great in explaining where specifically the asbestos was found in my older mobile home, and how it was to be removed before the structure could be demolished. Job was done great and within the timeframe they stated in the estimate. Would definitely recommend.

Elias and crew were great to work with. Their estimate was in-line with others I received, but they were much faster in both getting me on their schedule and completing the work than the others. They did a fantastic job and I’d use them again in a heartbeat.

Thinking of asbestos, mold, or any other pollutant can be a nightmare. But Elias has been my biggest support as a Realtor in this regard. He always responds quickly to my requirements and gives me the best options to solve any problem. I highly recommend Environmental Services of America
