Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Improve Your Air Quality

5/2/2018 (Permalink)

HVAC Cleaning

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

A routine part of
SERVPRO® of Oak Ridge’s
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
cleaning may not always be necessary.
SERVPRO® of Oak Ridge
will inspect your HVAC system and
ductwork and make recommendations
about the best way to address any indoor
air quality concerns. This inspection can
help save you money and provide peace
of mind on the health of your HVAC
system and ductwork.

In some circumstances, such as
after a fire, smoke, or suspected mold
growth, duct cleaning becomes an
essential part of the cleanup process.
In these cases, SERVPRO®
of Oak Ridge can often restore
the HVAC system and ductwork to pre-damage

If you have a fuel-burning
furnace, stove, or fireplace, the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) recommends they be inspected
for proper functioning and be serviced
before each heating season to protect
against carbon monoxide poisoning.
The SERVPRO® of Oak Ridge Duct Cleaning
The system is proven and cost-efficient.
Unlike the majority of duct cleaning
services, SERVPRO® of Oak Ridge uses a portable ventilation
and air duct cleaning system to examine
ductwork and make a clean sweep,
removing years of dust and grime.

The process begins by using
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 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
airstream. HEPA filters capture
debris and keep the indoor
environment clean.

As an optional process, a sealant or
coating product may be sprayed to
address odor or microbial concerns.

Filters will either be cleaned
or replaced to remove odor
and dirt.

cleaning or to schedule an appointment,
