Can the coils of a dehumidifier get moldy? When running it on my 1st floor level (multi level house) I kept getting black in the pan where the water runs down. I was cleaning every other day because of that. I empty my dehumidifier pans every day whether they are full or not. The one in the basement does not get that black coming down. The one that does is on a carpeted area with the front door level with the driveway and level with the very busy street. I vacuumed the grill but can not open it.
Please, any suggestions??? I have Concrobium mold control that is non toxic but don't know if I could fog the unit.
