SERVPRO Mitigates Fire Damage in Brockton, Which Includes Cleaning Ductwork

Many homes in Brockton have an HVAC system with extensive ductwork. When a fire breaks out, even a small one, smoke residue can spread quickly through the system. This causes soot to settle into the smallest areas in your home. SERVPRO can provide fast mitigation to prevent further damage to your residence.

What Can Homeowners Do to Help?
Turning off the HVAC system immediately, even before SERVPRO arrives, can stop the spread of smoke residue. If you can do so safely, close the fire zone doors, and retrieve the equipment's paperwork. As part of our fire and smoke removal services in Brockton, we clean HVAC ductwork. Our technicians are trained in soot removal. They seal the interior if needed to prevent foul odors.
You may be tempted to clean the ductwork yourself if the fire was small, but you can do more damage that way. Calling in the professionals who understand the different types of smoke residue is the best thing to do.

The Right Cleaning Product for the Job
Because there are different types of soot, knowing what is present is crucial. Our technicians test the smoke particles, so they know exactly what they are dealing with. There are four different types. They include:
    •    Wet Smoke
    •    Dry Residue
    •    Protein Smoke
    •    Fuel

Once the smoke residue is determined, they can make the right choice in cleaning agents. Using the wrong cleaning agent can cause serious damage.

You do not have to call in a separate HVAC company to clean your ductwork. SERVPRO does the service as part of our fire restoration to your home. If you need fire and smoke removal services, call SERVPRO of Metro Brockton at (508) 690-4690. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster!
