Air quality is a major concern when it comes to fire restoration in an Onondaga company. The soot that is formed from burning materials during a fire sticks to walls, ceilings and furniture, leaving behind a smoky stench.

It is tempting to turn on the HVAC to get colder air flowing. Please don't do this, as:

  • You risk further damage if any part of the system is damaged by fire.
  • It is best to not turn the system on until a professional inspects it.
  • HVAC systems can release smoke odors and sooty residue throughout an entire office complex

It is best to contact us immediately and not touch the system till we arrive.

What is SERVPRO's HVAC cleaning service?

Every fire damage restoration project should include a thorough inspection of the HVAC system. Our technicians are aware of how easily soot can enter the HVAC system. There are many ways to clean it.

  • We can clean the vents and grilles at the front if the soot has not reached them.
  • We have long-handled brushes that can be used to clean up any damage further back
  • Mild detergents can be used to remove stickier residues
  • To remove soot from the air, we can use HEPA vacuums.

Thermal fogging machines can be used by our technicians to remove hard-to-reach particles and deodorize every corner of your HVAC system.

When can you turn off the HVAC?

Our Franchise experts can help you determine when it is safe for the HVAC system to be turned on.

But don't worry, soot can get into the smallest of places. We can clean up any particles and leave your office certified: SERVPRO Cleaned.

SERVPRO SW Onondaga County can help you clean soot off your HVAC system. Call (315) 488-3900
