Air Vents and ducts are important parts of the ventilation of our homes. Ducts provide an easy path for the exchange of air inside out and provide us with fresh air to breathe in. Ducts need to be maintained properly so as to keep the quality and effectiveness of the ducts in check. Constant settlement of dust, dirt and mud is a chronic problem that our ducts have to face. But the presence of moisture can lead to the infestation of mould inside our ducts.

Mould can lead to many illnesses and diseases and can hamper the overall hygiene of your ducts. Duct mould removal is essential and should be carried out on time so as to avoid any exposure to spores and damage to our health. You can always hire professional duct cleaning services for duct mould removal. Or you can also follow this small step by step guide for removing black mould from your ducts.

Steps for Duct Mould Removal:
Start by removing all the lids and registers of the vents and ducts. Use a wet cloth rinsed in detergent and water to rub and clean the lids. Rub the registers continuously to remove any amount of mud stuck in it and let them dry. Now use a long brush and detergent water to deep clean the walls and floors of your ducts. Wipe the floors and walls of your ducts extensively and clean them to make sure that no amount of mud is left.
You can use baking soda for duct mould removal as baking soda is antifungal in nature. Add some amount of soda to the detergent water solution. Take a cloth and rinse it with soda and detergent, use this cloth to rub the black layer of mould vigorously. Keep rubbing very place of your ducts where mould is present. Make sure you continue the process until no sign of black mould is seen. Leave the solution of soda inside the ducts as it is and leave the place to dry naturally.
Since your ducts are now dry, you can use an air vent brush and attach it to a cordless drill. Turn on the drill and use it to reach the walls and floors of ducts. Clean the ducts thoroughly and remove any sign of mould and baking soda present inside. Avoid reaching the end of the duct as it will be very hard to remove the dust that deep.
Finish duct mould removal by a deep and thorough vacuum duct cleaning. Attach an extendable hose to the vacuum and reach the depths of your ducts. With a slow place remove any kind of dirt and remaining soda and mould left. Keep running the vacuum all around the ducts and make sure every inch of your duct is clean and dirt free.
