Mold On or Around Your Air Conditioning Handler

The key to controlling and eliminating a mold issue is moisture control.  There are several areas in your home that are susceptible to high moisture and humidity. However, one common area that often goes unnoticed is your air conditioning handler. While some handlers are located inside the home, it is not uncommon for some to be in the garage. This location is not ideal because of the high humidity levels found in garages – especially during the hotter summer months. Between the moisture generated from the unit and the high humidity in the garage, this creates a breeding ground for mold to form. In addition, if you notice your handler has excessive condensation or sweating this can also lead to mold growth.

What to do if You Suspect You Have Mold in Your Home

Mold doesn’t always have to be visible to be present in your home. One of the most obvious signs of mold infestation is a strong musty smell. In other cases, you may see the mold growing on walls, exposed drywall, carpeting, sub-flooring or insulation. Mold needs an environment rich in moisture to grow. For this reason, laundry rooms, bathrooms, kitchens and crawl spaces are strong potential breeding grounds for mold as well as a leaking roof or cracked pipes. When a home has experienced a recent weather event that allowed water to enter the home, it’s likely that this has contributed to a mold problem.

Immediate action should be take if there is a musty mold smell in your home or you can see mold growing. At this point, having tests run or an inspection is unnecessary. Any mold, especially black mold should be dealt with as soon as you detect the problem.  Getting rid of the mold or Mold Remediation is just the first step in the process.  Further steps also need to be taken to ensure the mold doesn’t return.  This is called Mold Abatement.

The Best Approach is Always to Have any Mold Problem Addressed Immediately

Any mold in your home should be dealt with immediately.  Regardless of whether the mold is black mold, or ANY other type of mold, GET RID OF THE MOLD immediately.  Depending on the severity of the problem, people do try and deal with mold removal on their own.  There are plenty of places offering free advice on the internet.  The concern that we have is that often DIY efforts don’t remediate the problem and they don’t abate the problem to prevent mold from returning.  It’s not unusual for us to help a client who has tried themselves to alleviate the problem only to have it return. 

During our inspection, we often detect mold that was never initially addressed and had remained hidden.  Our best advice is that if you suspect you have a mold problem, contact a professional mold remediation company.  The professionals at Mr Dry Services stand ready to help you resolve your problem and eliminate it for good.  Call or contact us online today.
