HVAC Water Extraction in Affected Dunedin Properties.
Calling a professional team to handle the extraction of your Dunedin home water damage can help in so many ways.
It is hard to associate HVAC systems with water extraction. However, since the entire Heating and Ventilation system touches different parts of the house, including walls, ceilings, attics, or basement, water intrusion is possible. Extracting the water and drying the system is not an easy task considering its components are set up in hard to reach areas of the house. Calling a professional team to handle the extraction can help save your system.
Specialized water extraction in affected Dunedin properties requires several steps. Extracting the liquid water from the ducts is the primary step. Our SERVPRO technicians accomplish this by inserting a vacuum hose to the ductwork through a register or vent. We then hook the hose to a portable or truck-mounted water extractor, which provides the suction needed to remove the water.
Wet-vacuuming may not remove all the water from the HVAC ductwork. To extract any remaining water, our SERVPRO technicians drill small holes on the ducts to let water weep or drain out through gravity action. After removing the liquid water, we shift focus to drying, which removes excess moisture that can cause other problems such as mold.
HVAC ducts can be made of different types of materials, including fabric ducts, galvanized metal ducts with fiberglass interior, or galvanized metal with exterior fiberglass, among other materials. The type of material determines the effort needed for drying moisture from the system. Typically, our SERVPRO technicians supply hot, dry air into the return portion of the system, drying off moisture.
Whenever water travels through the ductwork, there is a need to evaluate and clean some of its constituent parts. For example, there is a need to remove the fiberglass lining if present. We understand the need to do this following NADCA ACR standards, so apart from extracting the water, we also ensure a NADCA certified technician inspects the system.
