Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Do You Have Dirty Ducts?

4/11/2019 (Permalink)

Did you know your ventilation
system is often the biggest
culprit in poor indoor air
quality? Inspecting the ductwork in
your facility or home should be a high
priority. In most cases, the HVAC
system has been operating for some time
without much attention. Dirty ducts can
circulate odors, contaminants such as
mold and irritating dust throughout
your building or home.

A routine part of our
service is inspecting the heating,
ventilation and air conditioning unit
(HVAC). Keeping the HVAC and
ductwork clean can potentially extend
the life-span of the equipment by
allowing it to operate at peak condition,
which may help save you money. Duct

air quality concerns. This inspection can
help save you money and provide peace

fire, smoke or suspected mold growth,
duct cleaning becomes an essential part
of the cleanup process. In these cases,
your we can often restore the HVAC system and
ductwork to pre-damage condition.

for proper functioning and be serviced
before each heating season to protect
against carbon monoxide poisoning.

the duct, removing debris and filth
before vacuuming begins.
-Next, a powerful push-pull air
delivery and collection system
transfers the debris from the
ducting to a 16-gallon container.
-Air is filtered through a HEPA
filtration system, removing 99.97
percent of the particles in the
