Steps For Duct Mould Removal at Home

Air Vents and Ducts play an important role in the exchange of air all around our home and keeping our indoor atmosphere comfortable too. Ducts require regular maintenance and routine cleaning to make sure that they function well. Ducts are prone to the daily settlement of dirt, dust and debris, which can hamper its efficiency and may cause breathing problems in your family. Another dangerous problem that ducts face is the formation of black mould. Black mould is a fungus that can infect almost any part of your home. It appears as a thick black layer all around your ducts and this fungus spread by releasing spores in the air. These spores can cause various skin and lung allergies and exposure to these spores can also result in many symptoms like asphyxiation, bronchitis and fungal infections. So always hire professional duct cleaners for proper duct mould removal and get your duct sanitization and duct decontamination delivered by experts. If you have a simple case of mould infestation you can follow this simple step by step guide to get your ducts free of mould.

Steps for Duct Mould Removal:

  • Step 1:

Before beginning duct mould removal you must remove all the lids and registers of your ducts. Wash them by using a cloth and detergent water and remove any amount of dust or mud sticking in it. You can use a long brush and detergent water solution to clean off the walls and floors of your ducts and remove sticky dirt all around the ducts.

  • Step 2:

Baking soda works very well for duct mould removal and duct sanitization. Use baking soda by mixing it with detergent water solution. Rinse cloth in soda solution and rub the black layer of mould present in your ducts, Keep rubbing to remove any sign of mould and repeat the rubbing process for better results and complete eradication of mould.

  • Step 3:

After drying the ducts, use a cordless drill and attach an air vent brush. Turn the drill on and run the brush along the walls of your ducts. Remove mould residue and dust particles thoroughly and make sure you should not reach the unreachable end of the ducts.

  • Step 4:

Thorough vacuum cleaning will finish the duct mould removal process. Attach an extendable hose to the vacuum and run it inside the ducts. Reach the end of the ducts and extract the soda and mould residue left inside. Run the cleaner along the walls and floor and make sure no sign of dust, soda or mould residue is left inside your air ducts.
