Cleaning Your HVAC System After A Canoga Park House Fire

Effects from a disaster can spread quickly throughout your Canoga Park home using pathways designed for conditioned air. Your HVAC system is running almost every day throughout the year, keeping a set regulated temperature for your house, and as such, when disaster strikes these systems often become affected as well. With a situation like a fire, smoke and soot can often get brought into the HVAC system and spread through the ductwork to reach every room in the house, and coat the ducts themselves with a thick residue.

While there are many obstacles to overcome fire damage in your Canoga Park home, you need to fixate on getting the right professional assistance right away to ensure the right experience and expertise is at the helm of restoring your home as efficiently as possible. While structural concerns and other pressing effects might take precedent over cleanup in specific areas like the air ducts, our SERVPRO team has the tools and equipment to restore these areas and other damages that the fire has allowed.

Our professionals can arrive quickly after the firefighters have left your home to begin our assessment of the damage and mitigation practices to prevent further loss. When fire debris cleanup begins, often the HVAC system can get included in this overall effort. We have specialized tools like powered bristle brushes and strong vacuums to place over vents to pull soot, debris, sediment, dust, and potentially other contaminants from this network of ducts.

It is important to care for this system early because it can continue to be a pathway for soot and smoke residue to find access throughout your home. Our SERVPRO professionals can work quickly to clean this area, allowing a significant reduction in traveling particulates but also encouraging the system to run more efficiently once restoration completes.

Cleaning this system after a fire is one of many steps that must get taken to return your home to original condition. You can count on our SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills team to show that We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster. Give our experts a call today at (818) 998-1500.
