Following a fire, it is important to have a restoration service help with getting the home back to its original condition. There are many concerns that need to be addressed and the most important are those that are not always visible to the naked eye. There are many places in a home for soot, water and mold to hide and most homeowners do not have the equipment or the time needed to do the work properly. One of these areas is the duct work in the home. By hiring a duct cleaning service Albany residents will prevent the added expense and hassle that can occur when the ducts are not properly cleaned.
When fires happen the smoke will often be sucked into the ducts. The smell of the smoke may dissipate after a general cleaning and removal of damaged items, making everything seem perfectly restored. However, if the ducts have not been included in the clean up all of that work is undone in a matter of seconds. When the heating or cooling system is turned on following a fire, any smoke smell or soot in the ducts will be dispersed through the entire home. After a small, quickly extinguished fire the smell may be minimal and only require ventilation to air out the home. Larger or smokier fires often deposit a lot of soot throughout the home. The damage caused by the soot in the duct work could be severe enough to require another visit from the restoration service.
By calling a duct cleaning service Albany homeowners can also have their home made cleaner and safer for everyone even when there has not been a fire. Annual duct cleanings help to remove mold, mildew, and dust. It eliminates pet dander, pollen and dust mites that accumulate throughout the home.
