Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

What's in your ducts?

1/24/2018 (Permalink)

Different contaminants can enter and collect in your air ducts that may diminish the indoor air quality of your home or office. Keeping your HVAC and ductwork clean can potentially extend the life-span of your equipment and improve your health. In some circumstances, such as after a fire, smoke, or suspected mold growth, duct cleaning becomes an essential part of the cleanup process. Other sources could be rodents, insects, dust, dirt, debris, bacteria, mold and pollen. Your local SERVPRO Franchise utilizes patented equipment, including a roto-scraper, which automatically adapts to the duct's shape and diameter while traveling through the duct, removing debris and filth before the vacuuming begins. Next, a powerful push-pull air delivery and collection system transfers the debris from the ducting to a 16-gallon container.  The air is filtered through a HEPA filtration system, removing up to 99.97%of the particles in the airstream. Filters will either be cleaned or replaced to remove odor and dirt.  The EPA recommends that you have your ducts inspected and cleaned at least once per year and prior to the start of the winter season, especially if you have a fuel-burning heat source like a furnace, fireplace, or pellet stove. Call your local SERVPRO Franchise to schedule your appointment. 610-327-9644
