If your ducting contains fiberglass insulation and is left unused for extended lengths of time, mold and mildew may be present, which requires replacement of the fiberglass lining due to related health issues. If not a significant amount is found, we can try fogging with antifungal agents and check the results.

At SERVPRO, our technicians find that sheet metal ducting is easier to clean unless lined with insulation, which makes deodorization difficult, if not impossible under certain conditions. If your system has sections of flex ducting installed, replacement may be the most cost-effective solution due to the pleated folds that exist.
Duct sealing provides a solution for sections where cleaning may not be possible. Sealing involves the removal of vent registers and air intakes, along with any filters that exist. The technician then vacuums the dust and soot from all reachable surfaces such as the inlet plenum and each outlet.
After inspecting all of the mechanical components and cleaning them properly, a technician uses a general purpose wall and surface cleaner on interior surfaces. Beginning the sealing process by using an ULV fogger with duct sealer and deodorizers to apply a sealing agent.
A nozzle placed into the plenum works in combination with the central blower to blow sealer through the inlet towards any outlets that exist. Once sealing is complete, we reinstall outlet and inlet covers and place odor counteracting beads within the system to combat odors that exist.
