HVAC Cleaning and Restoration for Commercial Facilities
While HVAC systems do not always require cleanup after a fire, SERVPRO technicians do inspect them for smoke residue buildup or other soils related to fire damage. Vent systems can spread hot, smoke-filled air throughout a commercial property that can impact indoor air quality without careful cleaning with EPA-approved cleaning agents designed for air ducts.
- Sheet metal ducts are typically restorable. Insulation that may be surrounding ducts may require replacement if it cannot be deodorized
- In areas where ductwork is inaccessible for cleaning, SERVPRO professionals can seal these areas. In areas that require more thorough cleaning, technicians can perform disassembly of components
- HVAC duct cleaning after fire damage entails vacuuming loose, dry soot and dust from inlets, outlets, and any other surface inside the duct. Agitation tools and OSHA-approved sanitation solutions can be used for toucher residues
- SERVPRO odor control professionals can use ULV fogging for effective odor control inside ductwork, especially in areas that require sealing
