In addition to being gross, mold and mildew are a fungi responsible for a host of symptoms, ranging from difficulty breathing, sore throat, sneezing, confusion, fatigue. If you don’t see it, but constantly feel as if you have the flu or allergies, it’s worth investigating. Mold, a bigger, badder cousin to Mildew, can actually cause severe respiratory problems.
Apollo Care Plan
Plan benefits include annual inspections and service of your heating and cooling system.
Mold essentially needs four things to survive: air, water, food and a temperature between 40-100 degrees Fahrenheit. Eliminate one of those necessities and it’s a strong offensive against mold growth.
Your heating and cooling system distributes warm or cool air throughout your home, so it can be an ally or an adversary in your efforts. Regular servicing of your HVAC systems are good first step. Your technician will clean all the components involved, while looking for signs of excess moisture and mold.
Proper ventilation will also help reduce mold growth so Apollo Home recommends servicing your system to optimize proper airflow. Airflow is affected by debris in your system and ductwork, so it’s smart to eliminate dust, pollen, pet hair and other particulates through proper care of your interior and exterior HVAC units.
For the big guns, Apollo Home offers multiple products to forcefully attack mold and mildew concerns. A Whole Home Dehumidifier complements your HVAC system to properly adjust the amount of humidity in your house. This overall makes for a healthier home.
Too much humidity puts you at risk for mold, mildew plus an uptick in dust mites, (also aggravating allergy sufferers). Too little humidity increases static electricity, dry skin, feeling parched and supports the spread of virus and bacteria spores.
