Did you know that your ventilation system is often the reason for poor indoor air quality? Your HVAC gets dirty over time and they have the potential to contain large amounts of dust and particulates, so SERVPRO recommends cleaning. Even with filters the heating and cooling system still gets dirty from normal use. Cleaning the HVAC system help achieve for the system to not work as hard to maintain the desired temperature. It also results in less energy being used and leading to improved cost-effectiveness. SERVPRO Thousand Oaks trained professionals can recommend if your HVAC needs cleaning by inspecting them. Under certain circumstances, we will recommend cleaning after a fire or mold growth. Our cleaning process begins with removing ever register cover and cleaning both sides. Attach a 3200 CFM vacuum to the plenum to create a negative airflow in the duct runs. Remove supply grills and use a nylon whip that is hooked to a cable that will spin inside ducts removing the dust and sucked into the 3200 vacuum. Air wash and vacuum the HVAC unit. Rehang the registers. Customers will need to supply the new filter if not washable.
