Mold is a common problem throughout Florida, where warm and humid conditions provide the perfect environment for mold to thrive. When mold grows unchecked in your home, it can cause extensive damage to surfaces and finishes such as wood, carpeting, paint, and tile. Mold spores are a common allergen, causing reactions that include sneezing, itchy eyes, and a runny nose in those who are sensitive. Those with poor immune systems may develop respiratory infections after breathing in mold spores. Mold can also cause symptoms in health individuals that include irritability, headaches, and trouble sleeping. If left unaddressed, a mold problem can also contaminate your HVAC system, causing the need for extensive air conditioner repairs and duct cleaning to eliminate spores.
You can prevent mold growth by using your air conditioner to keep your home cool and dry. If your air conditioner is not maintaining a comfortable indoor environment, contact a certified AC service in Orlando for a thorough HVAC inspection and AC repairs to address mold growth and its associated dangers.
