Many people wonder if their ductwork has mold inside of it. This is a tricky questions because there is not a “golden” answer. Ductwork is made out of metal which is non porous and mold can not “technically” grow on the metal itself. If a duct system is dirty and contains layers of contaminants then mold could potentially grow on the debris inside of the ductwork. You can see from the picture below that there is a significant amount of debris for mold spores to adhere to.
