3 Solutions to Stop Mildew Growth Inside Your Home's HVAC System.

Help keep mildew from growing in your HVAC system through a maintenance agreement.

HVAC maintenance

A common problem for HVAC systems is mildew. Neglecting your heating and cooling system and rejecting the idea of maintenance agreements makes your HVAC vulnerable for mildew issues and more. The problem with mildew is that it is more than just a little odor. Mildew is harmful to your health, and it grows and spreads to different areas of your home. The good news is there is a light at the end of the mildew tunnel with a few helpful solutions to prevent or remove mildew from your HVAC:

  • Cleanliness means a mildew free system: Quite a few HVAC mildew issues are discovered through regular bi-yearly maintenance check-ups for your system while cleaning. A clean and regularly checked HVAC system is the absolute best line of defense against mildew.
  • Wipe out moisture: Mildew is bred and born in a moisture rich environment. Water leaks, faulty air conditioners, and ventilation systems should be repaired or replaced. If moisture itself is the problem, try a dehumidifier to help remove moisture from the air, so mildew doesn’t have a chance to grow.
  • Freshen things up: Mildew does not like any kind of “fresh,” especially clean and fresh air. Properly ventilating areas that have moisture and circulating the air by using a fan can go a long way in preventing mildew from setting up in everything from HVAC systems to window seals. In a nutshell, keep things as clean, dry, and fresh as possible.

With the right maintenance schedule and attention, no HVAC system should have mildew. G & M Service is ready and willing to help you with both when it comes to your HVAC system. A maintenance agreement is a great place to start, so call today at 919-772-8820 to set up your plan.
