Church Loss

10/26/2021 (Permalink)

A local church had the surprise of a lifetime when they found water flowing through the first floor of their building. Upon inspection, they realized the problem was coming from their third floor in a bathroom. A toilet supply line had broken sending water through three floors and into their basement.

They called SERVPRO of Hannibal and our heroes were there in no time to begin cleaning up the mess! They began by making sure the problem was fixed so it didn’t create a larger disaster. After, they began extracting water. When the water was extracted, then they began demolition of walls and flooring where needed. At the end of the day, they set over 100 pieces of equipment and monitored the project for days.

The ventilation system is often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality, but you can help change that! Inspecting the ductwork in your business should be a high priority. In most cases, the HVAC system has been operating for some time without much attention. Dirty ducts can circulate odors, contaminants such as mold, and irritating dust throughout your business.

A routine part of SERVPRO of Hannibal professional’s service is inspecting the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning unit (HVAC). Keeping the HVAC and ductwork clean can potentially extend the lifespan of the equipment by allowing it to operate at peak condition, which may help save you money. Duct cleaning may not always be necessary. SERVPRO of Hannibal will inspect your HVAC system and ductwork and make recommendations about the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns. This inspection can help save you money and provide peace of mind on the health of your HVAC system and ductwork.

In some circumstances, such as after a fire, smoke, or suspected mold growth, duct cleaning becomes an essential part of the cleanup process. In these cases, your SERVPRO professional can often restore the HVAC system and ductwork to pre-damage condition.

If you have a fuel-burning furnace, stove, or fireplace, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends it be inspected for proper functioning and be serviced before each heating season the protect against carbon monoxide poisoning.

The SERVPRO duct cleaning system is proven and cost-efficient. Unlike the majority of duct cleaning services, our professionals use a portable ventilation and air duct cleaning system to examine ductwork and make a clean sweep, removing years of dust and grime.

  • Next, a powerful push-pull air delivery and collection system transfers the debris from the ducting to a 16-gallon container.
  • Air is filtered through a HEPA filtration system, removing 99.97 percent of the particles in the airstream. HEPA filters capture debris and keep the indoor environment clean.
  • An optional process, a sealant or coating product may be sprayed to address odor or microbial concerns.
