Yes Jupiter. It depends on the severity of the situation, is the mold encapsulated in the insulation. If yes, than replace [insulation] it with new. Is it on the casing of the heater? If yes, clean it with a mold neutralizing metal cleaner. It's not a matter of finding something or someone to clean or address the existing mold. It's a matter of finding a contractor to rectify what is causing the mold grow. It's coming from excessive moisture in the air-handler unit. I can say with 100% surety you’re dealing with poor airflow and/or incorrect equipment sizing! Either issue will cause excessive icing of the evaporator coil, which leads to excessive condensate water in the system. The condensate will eventually overflow the drain pan leaving stagnant water in the air-handler housing, which leads to mold growth. I would not let any contractor do any kind of temporary repair, add any device like a UV light or air-cleaning product until the aforementioned is corrected. I talk a lot about this in my videos and on my website. It is the result of improper system design from unqualified contractors. There is a reason why some guys cost more than others, and this is one reason why!

If the ducts are venting through a window I'm assuming the duct work is all easily accessible.  Lowe's and Home Depot sell a cleaning kit that uses an electric drill to spin the brush as it goes through the ductwork.  I've found it to work quite well and you can do it yourself.  It may take a few passes the first time to get everything out if it has been a while since it was last cleaned.  Just make sure you get all of the loose lint out after running the brush through from both ends and you're good to go.  Please note that if the line is not hard but rather a flex duct line you can easily puncture a whole in it with this kit and will do better to clean it by hand.

There are varying opinions on the type of cleaning to have done on your air ducts.  My opinion is that it varies based on the type of duct work you have.  If you have solid material (typically metal) ducting you can have use a company that uses a brush to scrape the system clean.  If you have flexible plastic or foil ducts the solvent cleaners are generally a safer bet since the brushes often tear holes in the soft material and/or pull joints loose.  It really depends on what type on ducting you have.  You're ducts will collect all kinds of dirt, skin cells and allergens over time so if you see dicoloration around your vents it is probably time to get them checked and cleaned.

Also, don't stop at the duct work.  Don't forget your annual system check up by a licensed HVAC technician.  They'll make sure your system is running at peak performance, keeping it running efficiently and with as little impact as possible on your electric bill.  You can often save the cost of the annual tune up in the electricity cost saved.  If you have a natural gas system a bi-annual check and cleaning of the HVAC unit may be advisable to save electricity and gas.

if you have exhausted all of your choices I would call and put a complain in with the BBB then go to the DA and put a complain with them.  Then get a good lawyer and sue them for all you can get.

the answers in this on this page are all correct but you are using a bandaide to to cure the infection have a trust hvac tech open your system to see where the dust is coming from you more than likely have an impacted coil that need to acid wash to bring it back to oringinal anything left from the fire is still inbeded in that coil. just remember after that job to keep your filters clean change once a month in the summer and every two months in the winter.

arrived on time and was extremely friendly (even to my hyper dog). I purchased the deal for the dryer vent clean and fire inspection for $59. He cleaned the vents in a timely manner. I also purchased a new fire extinguisher and a replacment for dryer hose that had become dented. I will definitely have them back next year for vent cleaning and replacing my smoke detectors.

They arrived on time but their appearance was a bit trendy. Well spoken though and knew their job. He did not clean inside the dryer and when I asked about he said it was clear. I asked him to take a go at it anyway and he cheerfully responded and cleared the little bit of lint there was.

When I first called, on a weekend,

was running a bit late and was very proactive about calling to let me know. He let me know when he thought they would arrive and was apologetic about it. When

arrived, he took the time to get to know my dog and then he and his helper got right to work. The whole job took about an hour. They worked together as a team and went through the house very efficiently and professionally. The job they did at my mom's was 150% more than any other furnace cleaners have ever done.

Did a great job cleaning out a ton of lint from the dryer. Even let my kids watch and assist when they showed interest in what was going on. Very neat and fast. Cleaned up beautifully and wore shoe covers to protect from dirt and lint. They arrived a little later than I expected but worked fast and finished before dinnertime.

I first received his voicemail which threw me off a bit (it was more of a personal voicemail than business), but once we were connected everything was great. He showed up on time and performed the requested services plus some. We have a really long

Bryfogle had excellent response time to my contact; made an appointment in a reasonable amount of time, and spent a good part of the day searching down the exterior vent in a 30-year-old condo, and then cleanied it from mulch, animal droppings, and probably 30 years of lint, all with a good, friendly attitude. Each item that was charged was not so pricey, but adding them all up is what made the bill larger than the "specials' one might see from other companies. Our dryer now dries a good-sized load in an hour on medium instead of 3 1/2 or more on high. I think he prevented a fire and will cause our electricity bill to be lower. For those reasons i was glad to pay for his services and the add-ons. And we enjoyed his friendly attitude.
