HVAC cleaning equipment running in commercial duct work Call us for your commercial building HVAC Cleaning!

Ventilation systems are often the biggest culprit in poor indoor air quality. You should frequently make it a priority to inspect the ductwork of your commercial property and home. This ensures the safety of your customers and/or residents. 

If your HVAC has been operating for some time without attention, it could be circulating one or more of the following:

  • Dust
  • Pollen
  • Odors
  • Dirt and debris
  • Other contaminants

Keeping them clean can extend the life of the equipment. This can in turn save you money and give you cleaner air to breathe. However, duct cleaning is not always necessary. We will make recommendations about the best way to address any indoor air quality concerns. This can save you money and provide peace of mind on the health of your system.

The benefits of servicing your HVAC unit include:

  • Helps to restore peak energy efficiency.
  • May help to eliminate offensive odors.
  • Helps reduce the potential for mold growth.
  • Eliminates Potentially Harmful Air Pollutants
  • Eliminates Old Toxins
  • May Reduce Allergy Symptoms
  • Cleans Out Bugs and Rodent Debris

Don't forget about your HVAC system during your Spring Cleaning this year! Give our SERVPRO  franchise a call and we can clean your HVAC system for you. 570-714-0090

Wilkes-Barre Business Closed from Water Damage

SERVPRO Green Commercial Trucks in front of City Building Water Damage to your business? We can help.

When business owners visualize water damage, they often picture a massive storm wiping out power lines, flooding offices, and shutting down businesses for days at a time. It is true that commercial water damage is often the result of floods and water that stems from weather events and storms. 
 
However, many entrepreneurs and business space renters forget that storms and severe weather aren't the only causes of floods and water damage. Here are some of the typical causes of water damage to commercial buildings. 
 
1. Malfunctioning sprinkler systems 
Some older office and retail buildings still have outdated sprinkler systems that work in conjunction with fire protection systems. While such sprinklers can come in handy during a fire emergency, they can also cause commercial flood damage if they are faulty or in need of replacement. This could easily damage inventory and business assets.

2. Damaged appliances and equipment 
This cause of commercial flood damage is more common in restaurants and catering facilities, as well as any business that has appliances and equipment that make use of water. If the appliance fails and sends water across your building, especially during late hours when no one is around, you may come back to work and face a water emergency. 
 
3. Broken pipes and plumbing 
Just like in a residence, if the plumbing system in your workplace fails water damage could be the result. 
 
4. Backed up sewer lines 
This is another cause of commercial water damage that often catches business owners by surprise. Should the sewer line to your building back up or become damaged, realize the potential dangers of contaminated Black Water which can cause health effects and ruin products and office furnishings. 
 
If your business has suffered commercial water damage, SERVPRO of Kingston, Pittston City and Wyoming County will get you back up and running again. Call us anytime 24/7 at 570-714-0090 for fast help.
