mildew in the ductworks

For the past week I’ve noticed that every time I walk into my home I’ve been feeling sick, but for a while I was thinking that it was just pollen irritations however then my associate and I started affixing the dots that I only started to feel this way when I walked into my home as well as I didn’t feel this way when I was outside, i thought that maybe it was just because my air filter hasn’t been changed, I had not used a HEPA filter in quite a while as well as those are easily good at keeping my indoor air quality clean; The times when I haven’t used them I’ve had issues with my pollen irritations acting up as well as so I put in a new HEPA filter thinking that would take care of the issue.

However, I found that even when I was over at a friend’s home or at my family’s place I was no longer having symptoms.

It didn’t make any sense to me. I could not understand why even with the HEPA filter, I was having these symptoms. I was beginning to know that I was going to need to make an appointment with my doctor, however then my associate and I chose to go ahead as well as try one more thing first. I had not checked on my ductworks in a while as well as so I decided to schedule an appointment with a local heating as well as A/C corporation as well as have them come out as well as take a look at it. I wanted to see if it was something that could be in the Heating as well as Air Conditioning that was causing it, then when the heating as well as cooling worker came out of here she took one look at my heat as well as A/C ductworks as well as she told me that I had mold in there. I was shocked as well as horrified at the same time! I had been breathing in mold spores this entire time, no wonder I was feeling so sick. I had the ductworks cleaned actually thoroughly as well as I stayed out of my home for a week before returning, once I returned everything was back to normal as well as I could live in my home once again.
