Importance of Proper Drying within a Water-Damaged Home

Sometimes water incidents occur on a smaller scale, such as a persistent leak from a faucet fixture that, over time, causes a spread of saturation throughout the walls, cabinetry, and flooring. Drying this damage thoroughly is critical to preventing secondary effects that could be detrimental to your home and its occupants.

Drying up water damage within your home begins with an assessment of the full scope of the damage.

Our SERVPRO technicians at SERVPRO Ajax undergo extensive training to earn their certifications in water damage restoration. Our education and ongoing training give us a unique advantage even in damage assessment to thoroughly inspect for potential concerns beyond easily-visible issues.

To accomplish the high-caliber restoration work that we do for every water damage project we begin, we rely on the advanced technologies from our franchise. These tools help to make the restoration process more efficient, and also offer the homeowner peace of mind that the job is getting done correctly.

Our thermal imagery and moisture detection equipment is a good example of this, as these tools help to show pockets of moisture the eye cannot see without tearing out materials unnecessarily.

The combined use of our air moving equipment and industrial-strength dehumidifiers can have a fast and deliberate effect on drying out your home. Air movers force water embedded into materials like the cabinetry and walls out into the air to get removed as a vapor by the dehumidification equipment.

Our goal is to provide fast and high quality restoration services for any water damage situation that might exist within your property or commercial business. You can trust our SERVPRO of Ajax and our technicians to utilize the full measure of their training and industry-leading equipment to resolve your water damage fast.

Importance of Air Duct Cleaning Importance of Air Duct Cleaning

Why is Cleaning your Commercial Air Ducts Important?

The air ducts in your commercial building serve an important function, bringing heating and cooling throughout your facility as well as circulating the air through a filter, which cleans out some of the dust particles before reaching the rooms in which air is breathed by you and your employees.

Business owners are busy, countless daily tasks and emergency situations make paying attention to routine maintenance difficult at times.

Turning your attention annually to your commercial HVAC system and air duct system including performing scheduled inspections, maintenance and cleaning services is crucial to keeping your operations running efficiently.

There are many benefits to having our SERVPRO of Ajax commercial cleaning professionals perform an air duct, vent and register cleaning for you.

Commercial Air Duct Cleaning Benefits:

  • Reduce energy costs for your business
  • Reduce the potential for mold growth
  • Improve indoor air quality
  • Increase air circulation and flow
  • Increase your commercial system performance
  • Extend HVAC equipment life

Whether your focus is eliminating contaminants, dust, debris, and other harmful pollutants to improve your buildings indoor air quality, or you want to extend the life and efficiency of your HVAC and air duct system; SERVPRO could benefit your business. 

Factors that decrease air flow in your commercial air duct system:

  • Obstructed condenser unit
  • Blocked vents and registers
  • Clogged filters
  • Blocked or leaky ducts

Our SERVPRO technicians have advanced training to help resolve potential air flow concerns and accurately clean and remove the buildup of dust/debris, contaminants, mold spores, and particulates circulating throughout your commercial air duct system.

Our crews use a variety of specialized equipment to overcome years of buildup and pollutants within your air duct system. Our goal is to provide a thorough commercial cleaning and remove built-up sediment and pollutants from your system, improving overall efficiency and indoor air quality.

Air Duct Cleaning Improves the Quality of Indoor Air

By routinely having your air ducts cleaned you can significantly decrease the number of airborne molecules in your office, all while avoiding weighty fees for other air purifying solutions. Air ducts, like everything else in our office, collect dirt and debris. While filters may catch a lot of streaming debris, there is still a considerable amount of dust that settles within the ducts.

Air Duct Cleaning Conserves Energy

Air duct cleaning provides a beginning in optimizing your duct function, a properly and thoroughly cleaned HVAC system, can reduce the costs associated with running your HVAC system and increase the useful life of your air conditioner and furnace. Performing routine commercial air duct cleanings removes obstructions and improves airflow, helping your systems to work better, faster, and more efficiently, all while using less energy!
