Waterbury Fire Damage Restoration Sometimes Seals Ductwork

3/13/2022 (Permalink)

an hvac system in someones home The HVAC system in your home needs to be cleaned after a fire to help stop the spread of particles. SERVPRO has the technicians and equipment for you.

This Is Because Some Fire-Impacted HVAC Systems in Waterbury Can’t Be Cleaned.

HVAC ductwork is not always accessible to the Waterbury remediators attempting to clean it. This fact, of course, presents these cleanup professionals with a problem to solve. Fortunately, for local homeowners, sealing inaccessible ventilation channels is an effective method of preventing the further spread of fire-associated particles via their HVAC system.

Whenever the Waterbury fire damage restoration experts at SERVPRO can’t clean a segment of a smoke-fouled ventilation network, they work to seal its surfaces. These house fire clean up and smoke remediation efforts serve to prevent event-related residues from being blown throughout fire damaged homes, even though they remain on affected surfaces. 

The following are some of the procedures our highly-trained technicians follow to perform duct-sealing services: 

  • Air intakes and vent registers are removed and cleaned, while the air-handling system’s disposable filter is taken off and thrown away
  • Soot and dust are vacuumed off accessible surfaces, reachable duct interiors are washed with a general-purpose detergent, and mechanical components are inspected and cleaned
  • Vent covers are reinserted and all outlets are covered with a cheesecloth before fogging begins to protect furnishings
  • The sealing agent and deodorizer are applied with the central blower on, from the inlet to the outlets, using a ULV fogger 
  • Then, with the central blower off, ducts are back-fogged from each outlet to the inlet and, afterward, the blower is turned on to dry the system
  • Finally, before residents return, odor neutralizing beads are placed in the HVAC network and inlet/outlet covers are reattached 

Once all of these fire restoration steps have been taken, your ventilation system has been sanitized.

So, if you ever require fire damage restoration services, rest assured in knowing that SERVPRO of Waterbury can help. Call us anytime at (203) 757-5050 for assistance.
