Is there mold in my HVAC duct?

This is kind of spine-chilling to me even though I know there might be mold in my HVAC duct, and i wish so badly that I had not made the mistakes I made.

In order to explain what I’m talking about we’re going to have to go back in time a couple of months ago, then so for a long time I have had a fantastic quality roof on my house, in fact it has a couple of known leaky spots that I have left for a entirely long time because entirely they just weren’t that bad, they were entirely tiny leaks as well as I wasn’t expecting them to get worse, but you can easily see where this is going.

I just put a basket or two under some of the leaky spots when it rains as well as that took care of it; When I say they leaked I mean just a few drops that were coming through the roof. It entirely was nothing major. In fact you hardly noticed it, but now I shall be the first to admit that I’m cheap as well as that is why I’m having this issue that I’m having, if I just had my roof repaired or even had the roof respectfully replaced like I should have, after that I would not be having this issue. I entirely should have done something as soon as the weather people started talking about there is going to be a major storm coming through, I’m talking about a low-level hurricane type of storm, however did I do anything about it? No, I did not do anything at all. This is because I did not know that the storm was that bad, as well as I figured my apartment could hold up. Well I was wrong, in fact I was entirely wrong. I left my apartment because I did propose us to evacuate, which was the one fantastic decision that I did make; Anyways when I came back apartment the hurricane had managed to rip a major hole in the roof in the rain from the hurricane that had poured in as well as flooded my house, but unsurprisingly, this storm had also flooded my HVAC ducts. I thought I had had everything repaired as well as cleaned up however apparently I hadn’t, there must be still some dampness anywhere because now I’m pretty sure I’m growing mold in my HVAC duct. Now not only do I have to call the heating as well as AC corporation to take care of it, I have a crucial mess to take care of in general. I wish I had just had my roof repaired when the holes were minor, maybe it would have been enough to save it, maybe it would not have however it would have been better than doing nothing.
