Indoor Air Quality
Indoor Air Quality is important because it refers to the air we breathe everyday in our homes and at the work place. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the amount of pollutants indoors can be 2 to 5 times higher than in the air outside. Indoor pollutants usually increase, however, after a fire, water or mold damage. One way to improve indoor air quality is through cleaning and restoration services provided by SERVPRO of Reston/Herndon Professionals.
Duct Inspection and Cleaning
Duct cleaning is often necessary following a fire or water damage situation. When contaminants such as soot enter a duct system, they must be cleaned out to restore the structure to preloss condition. Dirty ducts can be a source of re-soiling if they are not properly cleaned. Particles and contaminants in the system will be continually recirculated until they are removed from the system. After a fire, your SERVPRO of Reston/Herndon Professional can determine whether smoke has damaged your insureds’ HVAC system, if duct cleaning is needed and make recommendations about the best way to address any concerns.
Control Moisture and Mold Growth
Spend time educating your insureds that prompt response is key to preventing and controlling water damage and moisture problems. Moisture in a duct system can contribute to the growth of molds and other biological contaminants. Before a SERVPRO of Reston/Herndon Professional arrives, occupants can follow these simple steps to help reduce the likelihood of costly water and mold claims.
- Correct any water leaks or standing water
- Properly maintain humidifiers
- Ensure proper ventilation of the area.
In many cases, your SERVPRO of Reston/Herndon Professionals can restore the HVAC system and ductwork to previous condition. You know SERVPRO of Reston/Herndon as an industry leader with a proven track record. You can be confident in the consistent quality service from a one-step vendor.
