Air Conditioners Can Cause Mold Damage in Tarpon

Mold Can Grow In Your HVAC System
Did You Know That Mold Can Grow In Your HVAC System

When you live in a region where the temperature and humidity require cooling, you risk the possibility of a mold infestation in your HVAC system or in and around your window air conditioners. Because mold spores are so minuscule, any that have collected within the duct work of your ventilation system or in the condenser coils of you AC can grow with the simple addition of moisture. Clogged duct work, drains or loose seals will prevent your air conditioning unit from operating efficiently which can allow condensation to feed mold growth.  SERVPRO of Tarpon has the certified staff who use the proper techniques and the equipment necessary to discover where the mold is hiding. We will use proper procedures to remediate the infestation, ensuring the airflow in your home is purer and less likely to spread mold spores around.

Great care needs to be taken when remediating mold damage in Tarpon. If you smell a musty odor that you cannot pinpoint give us a call to see if we can discover the source. Avoid running your air conditioner until we arrive. We strive to come to your home within hours of your first call. Our mold specialists will evaluate your heating and cooling system to find any mold growth. If a mold infestation is found, we will then develop a plan that contains the colony until it can be safely removed. We work with you to guarantee the safety of you and your family as we investigate and then complete the tasks that will resolve the problem.

SERVPRO of Tarpon will arrange to have the mold remediated, including looking for the source of moisture that is feeding the fungal overgrowth. The remediation is not complete until the moisture has been located and its cause corrected. If necessary,  we will work with experts in the heating and cooling field to eliminate the leak or repair, remove and replace parts of the duct work, condenser or compressor that may be adding the moisture to the mix. Once the mold crisis is remedied, we will advise you on tips to keep your HVAC system or window air conditioner operating at peak performance without the heightened risk of mold development.
