Proper Remediation & IIRC

Proper Remediation & IIRC

What happens when your HVAC system becomes submerged in flood waters? As a result, your system will contain dirt, debris and become contaminated with other organisms such as bacteria and fungi. It is critical for proper remediation not only for your HVAC system efficiency and life span but also, to ensure healthy indoor air quality. The mentioned microorganisms will grow on all surfaces of your HVAC system components affected by the flood waters. Additionally, moisture will collect in your ductwork enabling the growth of mold and bacteria in your ductwork. Therefore, your first step is to have your ductwork and HVAC inspected, cleaned of dirt and debris, and disinfected by a qualified company.

How to remediate?
• Remove all flood-contaminated insulation surrounding and within the HVAC system components
• Discard contaminated HVAC filter
• Sanitize using an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved sanitizer such as Oxine
• Hire a company that maintains an Institute of Inspection Cleaning Certification (IIRC) to clean all flood contaminated HVAC system components and ductwork. Bends and horizontal sections of ductwork require extra attention where containments collect and build
