I took a mold course 3 years ago and the biologist presenting said the same thing. He mentioned that all that fuzz was doing it's job and acting like a natural filter that would grab debris as it goes by. Therefore, why mess with it? I quit the mold testing thing very shortly after that. It's too loopy, I eliminated a lot of liability and sleep much better ever since.

Hi Gents –

Three years? I have been addressing the myths of duct cleaning for about 15 years. I first posted a web discussion describing the myths associated with duct cleaning in about 1994.

If you’re interested, you can find my current discussion “Duct Cleaning for Quackers?â€
