September is Mold Awareness Month
Every September is #NationalMoldAwarenessMonth. The goal of National Mold Awareness Month is to inform, educate, and raise awareness about adverse health effects caused by indoor mold and mycotoxins.

A recent study found that mold in your home can easily be spread into the air and cause health problems for you and your family. “But I don’t have mold in my house” is probably what you’re thinking so this doesn’t apply to me. Well, hold on a sec, do you have a bathroom that stays pretty warm and steamy after a hot shower? Do you have a basement that you always feels kind of damp? This doesn’t mean you definitely have mold or microbial growth, but it could play a factor.
In the DC metro area, all of us who live in Baltimore, Rockville, Silver Spring, Vienna, Arlington and Springfield, know that we live in a “wet” climate. The humidity during our summers makes it very easy for mold to grow just about anywhere that isn’t well ventilated, for example air ducts, your HVAC system, the HVAC ducts. Understandably, if mold can grow in a dark corner of your home, according to this study, it can easily be spread through your HVAC system and HVAC ducts.
Having Dapper Ducts or another NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association) certified company perform air duct cleaning, so that all of your ducts, vents and the component parts of your HVAC or air handler unit are free from debris, microbial growth (mold) and dust is a big step toward improving the air quality of your home, office, and school.
