The heating and air conditioning system ducts are generally cleaned and checked following a smoke or fire damage. The system is usually on during the event, it can work to spread soot, smoke or bacteria throughout the structure – making prompt corrective action imperative.
Westfair Restoration Services, Inc. offers restoration of residential and commercial HVAC systems following puff-backs, boiler explosions, fires, floods and similar emergencies.
Our process to HVAC and Duct cleaning is both less costly and more time-saving than system replacement, therefore minimizing property losses.
Contact: We first contact the homeowner, business owner or other appropriate person to arrange for an immediate inspection of the damaged areas.
Sealing: After inspection, to prevent further contamination the air duct system is first sealed, the air handling unit turned off, and filtering material placed over all registers and return vents.
Fungicide: If water damage is a problem, the system is sprayed with a specially formulated fungicide. This may kill any mold or mildew that might be present and minimizes the risk of re-contamination.
Deodorizers: Once the system has been cleaned of all soot that can be physically removed, deodorizers are then forced through the system to remove any lingering odors.
Cover & Clean: Finally, filter covers are removed and cleaned when possible. If there is a possibility of re-contamination, Westfair Restoration Services’ crews will install additional filtering devices in the register areas and return vents until reconstruction and total restoration of the building is complete.
