HVAC: Is Your Fire Restoration Plan Overlooking a Crucial Trouble Spot?

After your fire, you got to work as quickly as possible. You spent hours cleaning soot from walls, venting out your smoke damaged home and using an ozone machine to filter your air supply. So why are you still dealing with lingering smoke odors? The answer may lie in your HVAC system.

HVAC Systems and Household Fire Damage

HVAC systems work to circulate temperate air through your home under normal conditions. During fires, however, the vents they use to do their job act as perfect conduits for smoke. Soot particles that travel through these channels can get embedded in filter materials, collect on the insides of ductwork and stick to other inaccessible surfaces.

What happens when you turn your heating or air conditioning back on? Contaminated climate appliances produce lingering smoke odors. If you're not careful, the dirty air coming out of your HVAC devices might also ruin your clothes, carpets and other porous materials. It can also create layers of dirt that will have you cleaning soot from walls all over again.

Dealing With HVAC Fire Damage

How can you ensure that your HVAC system doesn't make your smoke damaged home a living nightmare? The secret lies in contracting with restoration services that can perform thorough internal cleanings. Since fires produce extremely hot gasses, it may be a good idea to work with someone who can also inspect your hardware for unseen problems.
