water in floor air vents


I live in a mobile home and I am finding water in my floor air vents in the living room and kitchen. Can you give my an idea of what kind of problem that I may be facing and do I need to call a professional asap????

Locating the source is #1.
If you have central A/C I be making sure the condensate line is not plugged up that runs from the pan under the slant coil inside the inside air exchanger.
100% sure someone did not just get to aggressive with the water when washing the floors?
Condensation from uninsulated lines?
Where there's moisture there's going to be mold growing.

So sad that you are facing a severe problem, try to mop so that it can be dry or it is better to call some professionals as they have proper system/team to make it dry and clean out all.

Sounds like someone poured water into the vent in the Kitchen. Usually with Mobile homes, you have one long trunk that serves all vents along that run, at the top on the floor.

Worse design a hvac engineer came up with, is flush mounted floor vents. Especially in baths, Kitchens and Laundry areas.
