Can Mold Grow in Your Air Ducts?


Mold can grow in any dark, damp area, such as under leaky bathroom sinks or in humid basements. The fungus can also appear in air ducts. On hot days, moisture in ductwork condenses when it gets hit with cold air from an air conditioning system, resulting in growing conditions for mold. Humid climates make ducts especially susceptible and require more frequent air duct cleaning services.

Signs & Symptoms

If your indoor air quality is compromised from mold-infested ductwork, you’ll likely notice a musty odor throughout your home. This odor may be more noticeable around vents. The fungus itself appears on and around vents as the infestation worsens. Toxic black mold is one of the most common ductwork molds and manifests as black spots. By this point, the growth could be widespread.
