Mold in the vents of my AC


Last summer, I kept getting sick and I couldn’t figure out why.

  • First, it was my kids and then it was me.

I figured that it was just a virus that the kids picked up at school and brought home. Like any other time we got sick, I sanitized the entire house from top to bottom. Sometimes, it takes more than a house scrubbing to get those germs out of the house. I noticed that there was an odd smell in the air coming from the air vents one night. I was starting to feel sick again, and I was not sure if I had picked up that bug again. I did a little more inspection of the air vents. I noticed that there was a little bit of mold on the outside of the vents. Then, I climbed into the ceiling to check out the air ducts. They were covered in mold. I was horrified. I called the HVAC company as quickly as I could get out of the ceiling. I explained that I had been very sick a few times back to back and they said that it was likely that I became ill from the mold in the air ducts. I was so grossed out. I asked them when they could have someone come and clean out the entire HVAC system. They had someone out the following morning. After the HVAC was thoroughly cleaned, I had no more problems with being sick. It is important for people who are getting sick over and over again to check their homes for mold. It can be hiding in the most unsuspecting places, like the air vents.
