Mold Allergy Symptoms with No Clear Cause? You Might Need Duct Cleaning in Vancouver

Mold and mildew can be a serious problems on any Vancouver property.  Most people are at least mildly allergic to mold, and some types of mold – particularly ‘black mold’ – can be genuinely dangerous to people.  Plus, the smell of mold instantly makes a property seem poorly kept and can cause people to stay away.

What do you do if your workers are showing signs of mold allergies, or you can smell mold, but you can’t find any clear cause?

Most likely, that’s because the mold is in your ductwork!  Fortunately, all it takes is a duct cleaning in Vancouver and the problem can be quickly remedied.

Uncleaned Ducts Can Easily Become Home To Mold And Mildew

Mold and mildew thrive in environments that are dark, enclosed, warm, and damp – which are the exact conditions in an air duct, particularly in winter.  The warm air blowing through the system doesn’t only provide the heat that mold needs, it can also create condensation.  Then all the elements are in place for an infestation.

Unfortunately, mold doesn’t only stay in the ducts.  Mold creates spores, and those spores are spread throughout your building whenever the air starts blowing.  In some cases, this can even lead to the mold escaping the ducts and getting a foothold in other areas, such as damp parts of the basement.

This is bad for any home or business, and it’s a problem that will only get worse the longer it goes untreated.

Signs Of An Unseen Mold Infestation

If you have mold in your ducts, the biggest sign is likely to be the smell.  You might even be able to pinpoint where the mold is growing, based on where the smell is strongest.

Also, in a building with mold in the ducts, people inside are likely to start showing symptoms of allergic reactions.  Mold allergies create the same effects as most other allergens, including coughing, sneezing, and difficulty breathing.  Some molds can also cause itchy eyes or even itchy ears.

So, if your workers or guests are showing these signs, but you know the rest of your building is clean, the ducts are almost always the problem.
