How Fire Damage Can Affect Your HVAC System

1/23/2020 (Permalink)

You may not think that fire damage can affect your HVAC system, but it can. If you have fire damage in your home or business, not only should you consider getting your contents cleaned, but also your HVAC system. A clean HVAC system, free of debris and contaminants, improves indoor air quality. SERVPRO® of Cape Girardeau & Scott Counties can help ensure you, your family, and pet are breathing in clean, quality air with a clean HVAC system.   

When a fire occurs, most may think the most damage comes from the fire itself. However, contrary to popular belief, it’s quite the opposite. Smoke actually does the most damage, and it is the soot that you see left behind. When your HVAC system is clean and functioning properly, it can efficiently do its job. Ventilation systems are often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality. 

The benefits of servicing your HVAC unit include:

  • Helps to restore peak energy efficiency.
  • May help to eliminate offensive odors.
  • Helps reduce the potential for mold growth.

Fires not only cause damage to contents and your HVAC system, it can also create a strong odor. Furthermore, a fire can cause water damage and mold damage. All the water fighting efforts, to extinguish the fire, can yield in standing water. And, of course, mold is a result of water damage. As you can see, fires can be like a domino effect; it can lead to a number of other problems at your residential or commercial property. SERVPRO® of Cape Girardeau & Scott Counties can help you take care of the fire damage, water damage, mold damage, your air duct cleaning and the odor removal. Consider us your one-stop restoration shop.
