Experienced HVAC Technicians Ensure Complete Water Extraction from Ducts for Our Morgan Hill Customers

Many residential property owners in Morgan Hill find that after an event involving water, their home’s air seems damper than normal. Not only is this uncomfortable, but it can also cause additional problems.
    •    Damp systems require more energy, increasing costs and decreasing system lifespans, and
    •    Microbial infestations become more likely.

The source of this water can also create problems, particularly if the water contains pathogens or chemicals. SERVPRO’s technicians have extensive training in mitigating the worst possible damage.

Complete and thorough water extraction from your Morgan Hill dwelling addresses every visibly wet area and enclosed spaces that can trap water. Your HVAC system is one of these areas. While a substantial amount of water can drip away through seams, this remains an insufficient approach. Our HVAC technicians help with removing moisture from a location that can devolve into a rusty, germ-infested mess, capable of causing undesirable health effects for your family.

How do you remove water from ducts?
After we inspect and test the heating system, we often use this built-in feature to elevate the temperature and dry out the ducts. However, we realize that ducts might contain debris. We place filters on the outside of the vents to trap any dust exiting.

Do any measures work for preventing mold or other problems from damp conditions?
If necessary, we can also perform regular cleaning. Antimicrobial agents applied once dry, either before an additional cleaning or without one, greatly diminish the risk of infestations.

Will drying out the HVAC system make the water extraction process take longer?
Part of SERVPRO’s training of their technicians and specialists includes working together as teams and performing more than just one or two functions. Multitasking reduces idle time, dramatically increasing our efficiency. This allows us, in most situations, to refrain from increasing the length of time it takes to fully extract water and dry a home’s structure.

SERVPRO of Morgan Hill / Gilroy can fix plumbing accidents that wreck your Coyote, CA, or Rucker, CA, residence, and extract the water, leaving everything “Like it never even happened.” Call (408) 500-0657 for professional service in an emergency.
