As WowHomeSolutions said, does no good to remove the mold without solving the moisture proboem - will just start growing again, because there are mold spores all through the air, just waiting for the right conditions to grow and spread.

Unless the moisture problem is due to unresolvable duct design problems (VERY rare), don't be thinking duct changing - probably 5-10 times the cost of cleaning and disinfecting the ducts.

You need to start with an HVAC contractor for an HVAC system evaluation and determination of why you are getting mold growth. I am assuming this is significant, visible growth, and that you know the difference in appearance between lint buildup and mold. If based on just a wipe test in the ducts that is meaningless - even new duct metal that has been laying around for awhile will show mod in that type of test.

Search the List (in green banner bar) for Duct Cleaners or HVAC Contractors in your area and their ratings and reviews.
