Thorough Post-Fire HVAC Inspections in Kansas City Consider Several Key Questions

When your Kansas City business suffers a fire, it is essential to inspect its HVAC system thoroughly. Although this involves several key steps, these actions are likely to minimize further damage by preventing the spread of smoke particles that could impact more surfaces, reduce interior air quality, and circulate foul, fire-related odors.

SERVPRO, a commercial fire, and smoke cleanup service in Kansas City, routinely performs extensive, post-fire HVAC inspections. Our skilled fire restoration technicians complete these crucial examinations as part of the smoke remediation and fire damage restoration process. Some of the specific questions SERVPRO’s fire and smoke damage experts seek to answer during their inspection of your ventilation ductwork are:

  • Where did the fire occur? Did it break out near the HVAC furnace unit or one of the system’s vents?
  • Did any smoke get into the ducts and, if so, did it enter through the network’s return or supply-side?
  • Are there any factors, like the HVAC blower being on during the fire, residue magnetism/ionization, or fire-related pressure differentials, which may have forced smoke residues into ductwork?
  • What types of residues, heavy, moderate, light, wet, dry, greasy, or odorous, are in the ventilation system?
  • What kind of filters, reusable or disposable, does the network use, and are they clean?
  • How is the HVAC system made, is it composed of duct board, flex duct, sheet metal, or lined with insulation, and must it be disassembled for cleaning?

Taken together, the answers to these questions enable SERVPRO to effectively evaluate a fire’s impact on your ventilation system and quickly remediate it.

With all that said, if you ever need fire and smoke cleanup at your place of business, don’t hesitate to call your helpful neighbors at SERVPRO of Kansas City Midtown. We are available whenever you need us at (816) 895-8890.
