Summer has officially arrived and allergy season has started to wind down here in South Jersey. However, if you’ve been sneezing and wheezing in your home and have noticed a strong, musty smell every time you turn on your air conditioner—you may have a mildew problem.
Mildew in your AC can be a nuisance, but it can also lead to several health and comfort issues in your Cherry Hill home. The professional team at Bovio Rubino Service can help you determine if your air conditioner—or duct system—is contaminated with mildew, and provide long-lasting solutions to help keep your family healthy and comfortable all summer long.
The Dangers of Mildew in Your AC
Your air conditioner is responsible for sending cool and dry air throughout your home. If it becomes contaminated with mold, it can have a huge effect on your indoor air quality by transporting mold spores throughout your entire home. Mold and mildew have been connected to numerous health problems, including:
- Stuffy nose & wheezing
- Asthma & allergy symptoms
- Lung inflammation
- And more
Get Rid of Mildew at the Source
Cleaning the mildew from your air conditioner will bring some immediate relief. However, if the underlying source of the problem isn’t also dealt with, mildew will almost certainly return. There are many factors in a home that can create an ideal environment for mildew to grow—like excessive moisture or air leaks in your building’s envelope. The team at Bovio Rubino Service can help you identify the source of mildew in your home with IAQ testing and find long-lasting solutions.
Don’t Forget Your Duct System
When you find mold or mildew in your air conditioner, there’s a good chance your duct system is also contaminated. With duct cleaning services, you can breathe easier knowing that your mildew problem has been completely eliminated by our experienced and highly skilled team.
