As air moves through your ductwork dust accumulates on the inner walls and within the passages which lead to and from the rooms as supply vents or air returns. Dust is generally concentrations of fibers, particulate, and organic materials (human skin, pet dander, outdoor particulate, etc.).
In some cases, where high relative humidity or condensation forms, HVAC systems can become a problem by providing environmental scenarios conducive to mold growth in your Washington, D.C. home.
Dust accumulations become the substrate for mold growth virtually inside of the HVAC air handler and housing assembly. This may include the fan blades, fan housing, cooling coils, housing walls, and especially the condensate trap which collects water and can stagnate within the housing.
Also, mold present in your Washington, D.C. basement, especially near your HVAC air handler, may draw in mold spores and distribute them into the system and ultimately throughout your household. In this circumstance, your basement is the source for mold spores, and your HVAC system is the distributor of mold spores.
Therefore, it is important to keep your ductwork clean and replace your air filters often with efficient filter media that removes many of these dust particles.
A Moisture / Mold inspection helps to discover if your HVAC in the house you live in or one you may purchase has high dust accumulations potential for mold problems.
Well ventilated attic spaces in your Washington, D.C. home are critical. Without proper venting (air movement and exchange) many bad things can occur, especially involving mold growth on wooden structures such as roof sheathing or truss members.

These are important items to look for in a moisture / mold inspection involving an attic. We look for these potential problems especially to prevent mold prone environments and educate you on the best approach to prevention as well.
