If you want your air conditioning unit to be in tip-top shape, you need to make regular maintenance a priority. Professional maintenance helps prevent dust build-ups and other unsightly issues, but it can also help you catch serious problems before they worsen. One problem you may encounter as you care for your air conditioning unit: mold.
Unfortunately, air conditioning units in humid weather are more susceptible to mold than those in drier climates, so if you’re in South Florida, mold should be on your radar. Every property will have some level of mold, but mold in an air conditioning unit should be remedied immediately. Not only can it impact the unit’s ability to function well, but it could potentially cause health problems for you and your loved ones. Here’s what we recommend if you suspect mold inside your air conditioning unit.
Call A Professional
While there are how-to guides on the Internet about how to remove mold from an air conditioning unit, it’s important that you reach out to a professional. Mold can be dangerous when inhaled, and it’ll need to be removed in its entirety. You’ll want to get a professional opinion as soon as you can.
Make A Plan For The Future
Once you get mold out of your unit, you’ll want to do everything in your power to stop it from returning. Talk to an air conditioning expert about steps you can take to avoid mold contamination. Mold is preventable if you know what to look for. If you notice a musty smell, it may be a sign of mold. The easiest way to stop mold in its tracks is by making regular maintenance a priority.
