Inspection and Cleaning Of Ventilation Systems after a Fire Damage Event in Pittsboro


After a fire damage incident, a cleanup process is undoubtedly inevitable. Among the places that our technicians inspect is the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning systems (HVAC). If not cleaned, the system can spread air with soot within the structure. Before we determine whether it is necessary to clean your HVAC system, we conduct tests on the system to look out for smoke residues. However, cleaning your ventilation system is determined by the extent of the fire. Cleaning for moderate to massive smoke damages on your Pittsboro property.

Our fire damage cleaning services in Pittsboro ensure that the smoke residues in your structure after restoration. The inspection process is conducted through questions like: was the fire damage near the HVAC vents or furnace unit? Did the smoke enter the supply or return side of the system? How long did the fire take? Was the system's blower operational during the time of the fire? Even with the blower not being operational, we must conduct inspections since the air pressure created by the fire may force residues into the system.

Cleaning the duct system in some portions may not be possible. For that reason, our SERVPRO experts conduct duct sealing. The steps we adopt in cleaning the duct include: removing and cleaning the ventilation registers and air intakes. Removing the air handling filter and replacing it. Vacuuming the dust and soot from the open surfaces is also an option. Washing all accessible interior surfaces using a disinfectant. Inspecting the mechanical components and cleaning them. We can also reinstall outlet and inlet covers after the cleanup process.

SERVPRO of Lee & South Chatham Counties goes a long way towards ensuring that your entire ventilation system is refurbished to eliminate smoke residues. Call (919) 533-6776 to work with our highly experienced technicians.
