Mold Resources

This is a great question to ask! Mold spores are small enough to be inhaled, ingested, and absorbed into the body. The more spores floating around in your indoor air, the more exposure you will face. This can trigger a long list of chronic symptoms and conditions, so we must actively work to reduce them. Knowing how to remove mold spores from the air can help improve your indoor air quality and ensure it’s promoting your wellness.

Not to mention, there’s very little airflow transfer between indoor and outdoor environments, thanks to modern building practices promoting net-zero energy efficiency. This means that most microscopic particles, like allergens, mold spores, and mycotoxins, that make their way inside our homes will remain there until they’re actively removed. 

Here are four answers to how to remove mold spores from the air.

How to Remove Mold Spores from the Air Step #1: Air Purification 

Air purifiers are a phenomenal way to reduce mold spores in a house. Not all air purifiers are built the same, though. You want to use a unit that removes the maximum number of contaminants possible. We suggest Intellipure products. Their purifiers utilize their patented DFS technology to remove up to 99.99% of particles as small as 0.007 microns. Whether it’s pollen or mold spores, these purifiers are equipped to filter them from your air.

The best option is to invest in a whole-home air purifier. These systems are installed at the home’s point of entry and will effectively remove contaminants from the air so that the HVAC system can run efficiently. This filters out particles for the entire home, eliminating the space requirements that smaller units have. As a bonus, they also offer a layer of protection for the HVAC itself by eliminating contaminants like mold spores before they enter the system.

How to Remove Mold Spores from the Air Step # 2: Upgrade HVAC Filters 

Switching to the highest-rated MERV filters for the specific HVAC system is a phenomenal way to improve indoor air quality and decrease mold spores. You want filters with the technology actually to eliminate them from the air. Otherwise, they’ll circulate back into the home, creating an unhealthy environment.

How to Remove Mold Spores from the Air Step #3: Change HVAC Filters on Time

If air filters are past their time to be replaced, chances are they’re packed full of particles. This will affect their ability to filter mold spores, lowering indoor air quality. It can also strain the HVAC system as it works overtime to pull air through the clogged filters.

How to Remove Mold Spores from the Air Step #4: Dust Frequently

Gravity brings particles like mold spores down to horizontal surfaces like floors, doorframes, and furniture. So, where dust collects, these indoor contaminants do, too. The more dust there is in a home, the more of these microscopic particles there are as well. When this layer of particulate matter gets kicked up into the air, it will lower the indoor air quality of the space and allow mold spores to enter our bodies through inhalation. 

Use a damp microfiber cloth on surfaces throughout the home. Microfiber cloths are an invaluable power tool for cleaning homes and eliminating tiny particles from your space. They are 100 times more effective than regular rags at wiping away microscopic particles. 

A HEPA vacuum cleaner is another great option for removing particles, particularly from porous surfaces. To meet the EPA standard and be qualified as a HEPA filter, it must filter out 99.7% of particles that pass through that are 0.3 microns in size. That means these machines can remove small particles like mold spores.
