Can I Run My HVAC System After a Flood in My Cocoa Auto Parts Shop?
It Is Important to Dry and Clean the HVAC System in Your Cocoa Business
Unfortunately, living and working close to sea level in Florida means you have to deal with the prospect of flooding inevitable. With hurricane season and intense summer storms, flooding can happen in Cocoa. Owning the building for the business comes with some drawbacks in the case of flooding. You not only have to make sure that your storefront appears normal while also being structurally sound. It is crucial to understand that after a flood, appliances may not function properly. Keeping this in mind, you should exercise caution when turning on the HVAC system.
Do I Need to Replace the HVAC System?
SERVPRO Performs Restoration on Your HVAC System
Flood damage in your Cocoa store does not necessarily mean a complete loss. The goal is restoration over replacement. Our technicians use moisture detection equipment to determine the presence and amount of water. It is essential to properly dry impacted appliances to avoid secondary damage like mold growth. We understand that your HVAC system needs to be operational as quickly as possible for your business to open; due to the hot, humid conditions in Florida.
How are HVAC Systems Restored?
• Extract excess water with a portable wand extractor.
• Thoroughly dry the system using targeted airflow with air movers.
• Clean sheet metal ducting.
• Ducting coated with more porous materials like fiberboard may require replacement if contaminated with gray or black floodwater.
• Inspect and remove any contaminated insulation.
• Before and after the cleaning process, test air quality to ensure safe, breathable air circulating through the HVAC system.
