Flooded Homes and Basements Cleanup
After a major flood in a home, not only do you clean the floors, furnishings and walls, but you should also consider checking (HVAC) the air conditioning, ventilation ducts, and heating system as well. Flood waters seep into some of the most hard to reach places, leaving dirt and contaminants.
Water seeping into duct work makes for a breeding ground of bacteria and fungus. Though the duct work does not become water damaged the winds blowing over such water migration makes the air in the home unhealthy. The amount of time you and your family spend in a home increases the possibility of respiratory infections. Closed in homes not aired out regularly often have higher pollution levels than outside air.
You are getting ready for water damage clean up and water extraction. Areas with HVAC needs you must put under negative pressure for a short time to keep the pollution out. HEPA (high efficiency particulate air filters) filters in blowers do the trick. Pressurize surrounding areas to isolate the pollutants. Protect the health of workers and you and your loved ones. Wear a respirator when in direct contact with the flooded HVAC system.
