Why It Is Important To Clean Your HVAC System during Fire Damage Restoration in Carolina Beach
Complete Fire & Smoke Residues and Odor Remediation Needed? Call SERVPRO
Fire damage incidents are always frightening. Luckily, if you promptly take the right restoration actions, you can prevent further damage and salvage most of your contents. It is not all about cleaning the soot and smoke particles that you usually see after a fire; there are inspections that we perform in your Carolina Beach home during the restoration to uncover hidden issues. For instance, have you ever asked yourself what it takes to clean a Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system after a fire event?
While cleaning the HVAC unit may not be mandatory during fire damage restoration in Carolina Beach, our SERVPRO technicians never take chances. If the system is contaminated, it can spread smoke residues within the structure once you switch it on. When we are performing HVAC duct cleaning, we adhere to the state and local regulations. We are going to look at some of the steps we follow when cleaning these vital systems.
Our SERVPRO technicians start by identifying the location of the fire in relation to the return side or supply side of the HVAC system. Even if the system was off, air pressure might develop from the heat which can move smoke particles into the ducts. Knowing whether the unit was operating during the fire and the duration it took is equally essential. So, irrespective of the situation, we have to inspect the system and check whether it has smoke residues and odors. Our Green Fleet supplies our SERVPRO technicians with the heavy-duty equipment and cleaning and deodorizing products to complete the task at hand.
Once we are sure some level of contamination exists in the unit, checking the extent of the damage follows. It is the time when we identify the type of smoke particles and whether odors are present. Our SERVPRO technicians are familiar with the design and operation of HVAC systems, and that helps us to identify mechanical damage, and if present, we may recommend a replacement. Depending on the state of the filters, we can clean or do a replacement several times during the recovery process. By using ULV Foggers, we can perform deodorization to neutralize the odors.
