Duct Cleaning After Fire Loss
This is a before and after photo of ducts that we cleaned in Nauvoo after a house fire. Fire, water and wind catastrophes often lead to HVAC systems sucking in contaminates, water or smoke. Years of dust and debris in the ductwork may also be loosened up in these events leaving it sit loose on the ductwork bottom (just waiting for the system to be activated again to blow it all over causing recontamination of what you just cleaned).
After fire duct cleaning is almost always needed but often overlooked. Did you know that fire departments commonly use the ventilation system to help “purge” the smoke out of buildings? This is very efficient and saves thousands of future cleanup dollars BUT these ductwork systems will require cleaning before being run. We also commonly see smoke that is sucked in from fresh air systems when smoke from a fire was nearby (or even from a neighboring building on fire) creating “smoke smells” in areas of a building that did not even have the fire.
