Duct Cleaning

6/24/2019 (Permalink)

Air duct cleaning involves removing the dust and contaminants that can exist within the duct work. Air duct cleaning involves powerful vacuums that can pull the dust and debri from deep within, preventing it from moving and circulating throughout the home.

Dust can settle in your duct work after just a few hours of non-movement. When you power your system up, that dust begins to move. The dust, along with other contaminants can settle on your furniture, bedding, flooring, etc. 

Even if no one in you home suffers from allergies or respiratory conditions, cleaner air helps keep you healthier. Every time you breathe in dust and pollutant, they have the potential to trigger sneezing and coughing. It can also impact sinuses or bronchial congestion.

When your duct work and registers have heavy buildup, they may not operate as efficiently as possible.

Clean air ducts ensures you’ll always have a clean air supply to breathe in. 

SERVPRO of Statesboro provides duct cleaning. In some instances duct cleaning isn’t necessary, but we can make the proper recommendations in reference to the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns.

Understanding SERVPRO Lingo of Water Contamination

11/14/2016 (Permalink)

Water from sewer system backups should be considered very dangerous. The water is grossly unsanitary and may contain bacteria and viruses that could cause serious illness. Special training and equipment is necessary to safely clean this type of contamination.

There are three major types of contaminated water.

Category 1: “Clean Water”

This is water from a clean source, such as a broken clean water supply line or faucet. If left untreated, category 1 water can quickly degrade into category 2 or 3 water depending upon such factors as time, temperature and contact with contaminants.

Category 2: “Gray Water”

This water has a significant level of contamination that could cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Sources for category 2 water may include washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow.

Category 3: “Black Water”

This water is grossly unsanitary and could cause severe illness or death if ingested, and any contact should be avoided. Sources for category 3 water could include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.

 

SERVPRO of Statesboro will inspect the contaminated water to determine the type of water and then plan the appropriate response to safely restore your home or business.
