Duct Cleaning Care
Before and after duct cleaning by SERVPRO of Omaha Southwest and Omaha West / Saunders County.
With the spring passing and summer about to start, it’s time to start thinking about duct cleaning for your residence. Ventilation systems are oftentimes the biggest culprit of poor indoor air quality so it should be a priority to inspect the ductwork for your home or business. Many sections of your heating and cooling system may not be accessible for a visible inspection, so ask a professional to show you any mold that they might find.
If your ducts were not properly installed, maintained, and operated, issues may become harmful to yourself and loved ones. If moisture is present, the potential for mold growth is increased and spores may be released into your home or business. If you think you may have mold growth, vermin, or excessive amounts of dust in your ducts – you should consider calling SERVPRO of Omaha Southwest and Omaha West / Saunders County for a quote at 402-408-0134.
Protecting Yourself & Others From COVID-19

As COVID-19 cases continue to rise throughout the country, it is more important now than ever to take precautions to keep you and your loved ones safe. Make sure you follow the CDC guidelines to ensure you are being as safe as possible. That means wash your hands often – especially when you are preparing food, after you use the restroom, after leaving a public place, and before touching your face or mask. Make sure you are avoiding close contact and wearing a mask when around others. If possible, try to maintain 6 feet (or two arms’ length) between yourself and anyone who does not live in your household. Following these guidelines will help keep you and others as safe as possible.
If you come in contact with someone that contracts COVID-19, begin a quarantine period and monitor yourself for symptoms. SERVPRO of Omaha Southwest & Omaha West/Saunders County follows a three-step process for confirmed COVID cleaning. First, we clean all surfaces 7' and down. Second, we use our EPA registered disinfectant to mist throughout the entire cleaning area. We use a ULV fogger to apply our disinfectant. The fogger gives the solution an electrostatic charge, allowing it to wrap conductive surfaces with an effective and even coverage. Last, our crew will do a final wipe down, and ensure no residue is left behind. SERVPRO tailors the cleaning scope to match the needs at hand. Each job can vary depending on if it's a confirmed case or preventative cleaning and the space that needs to be cleaned and disinfected.
