MOLD AND MYCOTOXIN ILLNESS &
THE HVAC SYSTEM
EnviroAir Systems aims to help you understand how the HVAC System affects your health in regard to Mold and Mycotoxin Illness, as well as provide actionable ways to improve your health while maintaining ideal indoor air quality.
EnviroAir Systems maintains that the HVAC system's hygiene and humidity control should be a significant part of health protocols pertaining to mold illness, and here's why:
Circulation of Contaminated Air:
If your HVAC system is contaminated with mold or mycotoxins, it can distribute these harmful substances throughout your home or building. Mold spores and mycotoxins can become airborne and travel through the ventilation system, reaching different areas and potentially causing health problems.
Indoor Air Quality:
A well-functioning HVAC system plays a crucial role in maintaining good indoor air quality. If the system is not properly maintained or if there are issues with filtration, humidity control, or ventilation, it can contribute to the growth and spread of mold. Mold growth can produce mycotoxins, which can then be circulated by the HVAC system and inhaled by occupants.
HVAC systems use air filters to capture dust, debris, and allergens. However, if the filters are not regularly cleaned or replaced, they can become clogged and less effective at trapping mold spores and mycotoxins. This can result in increased exposure to these harmful substances.
Maintenance and Cleaning:
Proper maintenance of the HVAC system is crucial to prevent mold growth and mycotoxin contamination. Regular inspections, cleaning of ducts and components, and prompt repairs are essential to ensure that the system is functioning optimally and not contributing to indoor mold problems.
HVAC systems are responsible for regulating humidity levels within a building. Excessive humidity can create a favorable environment for mold growth. If the HVAC system fails to dehumidify the air effectively, it can contribute to elevated moisture levels, leading to mold growth and potential mycotoxin production.
It's important to note that while the HVAC system can indirectly affect mycotoxin illness, the primary source of mycotoxins is mold growth.
