Sweeping Away Years of Dust and Dirt - Helping Reduce Potential for Damage and Health Risk

Since the ventilation system is often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality, inspecting the ductwork 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 SERVPRO of Northeast Mecklenburg County professional's service is inspecting the heating, ventilation and air conditioning until (HVAC). Keeping the HVAC system and ductwork clean can potentially extend the life span of the equipment by allowing it to operate at peak condition, which may save you money. 

Duct Cleaning May Not Always Be Necessary 

Our professionals will inspect your HVAC system and ductwork and make recommendations about the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns. This inspection can save you money and provide peace of mind on the health of your HVAC system and ductwork. In some circumstances, such as after fire, smoke or suspected mold growth, duct cleaning becomes an essential part of the clean up process. In these cases our professionals can often restore the HVAC system and ductwork to pre-damage condition.

The original call was for periodic odor.  Upon further review and inspection of the crawl space the source was discovered.  When the floor vent duct is being used as a private toy storage box, the onset of problems is predictable.  We cleaned the duct system and fixed the ductwork, we even cleaned a few toys in the process.
