Duct System for Smoke Removal

Duct System Smoke Removal

Ductwork is like the arteries of the home because your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are connected to it. This means your home air quality, comfort, and overall health and well-being all are dependent on how clean you keep the duct system.

Smoke from fire damage can greatly damage the duct system. Smoke particles can stick to the air duct wall corroding the pipe, creating smoke odor and harmful chemicals that linger in your home and can cause long term health and property damage.

The best way to clean a smoke-damaged duct system is to let a professional disaster restoration company do the job.

Smoke Damaged HVAC System

When there is a fire incident and clouds of smoke are formed, that smoke residue enters the HVAC system and can spread smoke odor and harmful chemicals throughout the living area or building through the ductwork. This causes damage that can way outlast the incident.

At the time of the fire, if HVAC systems were in operation then it will contaminate the return airside. In nonoperating conditions, the duct system still transfers the smoke because of the passive air movement in the air ducts systems.

Impact Inside the Ductwork

Smoke is naturally attracted to metal surfaces and is corrosive in nature. As the smoke enters the air ducts it will cling to the steel and will absorb into the debris within the air duct system.

Fire Smoke Odor

Smoke Odor

One of the worst things to deal with after a fire accident is the insistent smell of smoke residue. The smoke and soot odors can invade rooms the fire didn’t even touch and can remain in your air ducts and ventilation system long after the fire has been put out. So smoke odor removal is an important part of restoration.

Smoke, Soot & Odor Removing Process

Duct System Smoke, Soot & Odor Removing Process

Dry Ice Blasting – This process removes soot, burnt plastics, and other buildup left in ductwork after a fire. 

Air Scrubbing: A high-efficiency particulate arrestor (HEPA) air scrubber can remove 99.97% of particulates from the air. Removing these airborne particulates removes additional odors.

Thermal Fogging:  Fogging uses a petroleum-based deodorizer emitted via a thermal fogging unit. It fills the affected area with a mist-like deodorizer. Fogging counteracts odorous molecules by using fragrance modification for permanent odor neutralization.

Vapor Modification: This method uses an aromatic compound vaporized from a sealed plastic container then dispensed into the air by a fan or blower. The mineral oils used in this process are non-toxic, non-oily, non-flammable, and non-explosive. Therefore, customers can remain in or near an area during the smoke smell removal process. The deodorizer also penetrates affected porous contents like upholstery and drapery.

Odor Oxidizer: After the ventilation system has been cleaned, and odor oxidizer is applied within the air ducts. The odor oxidizer naturally breaks downs the odor-causing chemicals of the smoke damage.

Encapsulation: In some instances of extreme smoke damage, air ducts will need to be encapsulated to remediate the smoke damage. After the air ducts are cleaned, an encapsulate approved for use within HVAC systems is applied uniformly throughout the ventilation system.
