Commercial Air Duct Cleaning in Edgewater
Call Today For A Free Estimate
It’s important to keep your heating, ventilation, and air condition (HVAC) units working correctly to prevent the spread of unwanted dust and contaminants at your business. When the ductwork of your HVAC unit becomes clogged or backed up, you might start to notice foul odors coming you can’t get rid of, or find the source of in your home. When it comes to commercial cleaning, our professional technicians can inspect, repair, restore, and replace your HVAC unit so that you can breathe clean, fresh air in your home or office all day long.
Why Should You Have Your HVAC Serviced?
Depending on the age of your HVAC unit, and the quality of the installation related to the ductwork, you might not have to have your air ducts cleaned when we inspect your ductwork. Sometimes, a filter change or tune-up of the unit is all that is necessary. Regardless of the required work, regular inspections should be carried out. In addition to reducing the risk of odors and increasing air quality, having your HVAC unit serviced means that it is likely to last longer, and function appropriately for many years to come. Also, some insurance policies require regular inspection of HVAC units to reduce the risk of fire, damage, or other emergency situations related to the HVAC system itself. We can save you time, money, and help you avoid disaster when it comes to the air quality in your home or office.
Benefits of HVAC
HVAC units are very beneficial for homes and office space. Because they are 3-in-1 systems consisting of heating elements, ventilation systems, and air conditioning units, there is no need to have more than one piece of equipment on your property. While some units are separate, the majority of them are combined. Combined units mean easy cleaning and maintenance as well. HVAC units improve air quality in your home or office and provide a high return on your investment because they provide you with cleaner air to breathe. They'll keep you warm during the colder months, and cool during the heat of summer. Ventilation systems will ensure moisture leaves your home, and that humidity is controlled as well. With equipment that does so much, it's important to make sure it's functioning correctly.

Frozen Pipes (Water Damage) Ravenswood
Nothing can ruin your day faster than finding out that frozen pipes have burst and caused water damage to your home or business. Many people travel during the winter and return home to find that their pipes have frozen, and let go during the thawing process. With extreme weather conditions, it is not uncommon to hear of pipes freezing and thawing in short order. Pipes freeze when they run along the exterior of homes - often older homes - and become exposed to ongoing cold weather. The temperature starts to affect your water pipes around 20 degrees below Fahrenheit. If left untreated, damaged water pipes can flood bathrooms, basements, kitchens, and even entire homes. As winter clean up experts in Ravenswood, we can help you repair or replace broken pipes and the mess created by those pipes.
How to Avoid Frozen Pipes
If you have an older home, it is important to check for exposed pipes along the exterior or your home, and along the interior walls of your home. If they are left exposed, they are likely to become frozen during colder weather. With constant freezing and thawing, pipes can become weak, so that even when a pipe thaws, it could still break and cause flooding. Contact our office to have your water pipes inspected and adequately insulated to avoid any flooding in the future.
What Kind of Pipes Freeze?
Homeowners may not be aware of all of the pipes hidden in their walls, behind panels, or even outside. Bathroom and kitchen water pipes are usually top of mind because you see those water fixtures every day. Swimming pool supply lines, water sprinkler lines, and even outdoor hoses are often forgotten about during the cold weather because those items are not in use. Unless they are properly drained and stored, they can freeze and thaw creating damage, and they could even lead to flooding. Indoors, homeowners often forget about hot water tank links, garage water supplies, and pipes that might be running through crawl spaces or in dark areas of their basement. While water lines are not supposed to run through attics, some homeowners install air conditioning units in attics, which could also freeze if installed incorrectly. We'll inspect your home to make sure your pipes are properly insulated and stored so that they last for years to come.
Cold Weather Clean Up in Ravenswood
We specialize in winter storm and weather clean up. If you have water pipes that have become frozen, we can thaw them correctly so that you can have your water up and running again in no time. We can also provide proper insulation for your exposed water pipes so that they don’t freeze again in the future. We’d be happy to inspect your home’s water supply lines, both indoors and outdoors, to make sure you don’t run into trouble in the future. Prevention is the best medicine when it comes to frozen pipes, but if you find yourself the victim of water damage due to frozen pipes, call us right away. Don’t let cold weather stop you from having access to your water supply, and don’t leave your home exposed to possible risks.

Don't Do It Yourself - Call the Pros!
Crime scenes can be complex and messy. The proper way to process a crime scene must be done strategically in order to preserve evidence.

SERVPRO of Ravenswood Recognizes National Preparedness Month with a Reminder to Home and Business Owners
Creating a custom emergency plan that suits your facility needs.
“Disasters Don’t Plan Ahead. You Can.”
Local disaster restoration specialist offers no-cost tools to help property owners prepare a comprehensive emergency readiness plan
September is National Preparedness Month (http://www.ready.gov/September), an annual event sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to raise awareness about the importance of preparing—in advance—for the unexpected. In support of this initiative, Tom Williams, owner of SERVPRO® of Ravenswood, encourages Chicago property owners to take the following two steps now to protect their family, home, and business in the aftermath of a disaster.
- Review and update your emergency preparedness plan, including business and life continuity plans. If you don’t yet have a plan, use the tools provided by FEMA to get started.
- Collect and store time-critical information, like the location of shutoff valves, fire suppression system controls, and emergency contact numbers electronically, where it is immediately available to assist first responders.
Because SERVPRO knows the time to create a disaster readiness plan is before you need it, they have developed the SERVPRO Emergency READY Program to help business owners create an Emergency READY Profile (ERP) for their facility, at no charge.
“Evacuation plans and emergency supply kits help you survive a disaster, but a comprehensive emergency preparedness plan helps you recover from a disaster,” said Williams. “The most effective response to any emergency is a fast response. That’s why having critical system and contact information at your fingertips is so important. A quick and effective response helps minimize repairs and downtime, helping both businesses and families get back on track in less time, with less stress.”
SERVPRO offers tools for both commercial and residential property owners to help them minimize damage and recover quickly from emergencies. The SERVPRO READY app stores essential contact and property information electronically where it can be accessed with a mobile device in seconds if disaster strikes. Both home and business owners can download the free app at https://ready.SERVPRO.com/home/mobileapp. Local business owners can take an additional preparedness step by designating SERVPRO of Ravenswood as their disaster mitigation and restoration provider. SERVPRO professionals will conduct a no-cost assessment of the facility and assist the owner in completing a comprehensive Emergency READY Profile® (ERP) and storing that profile in the READY app.
“Rapid response from a disaster cleanup and restoration specialist can help the property owner evaluate options, start the insurance process, and take the right steps from the beginning to bring their property back to normal,” said Williams. “Even in the confusion and panic that often surround a disaster, a property owner or manager using the SERVPRO READY app can reach out for expert help right from the scene, using a cell phone.”
SERVPRO® of Ravenswood specializes in disaster restoration, cleanup and repair services, helping to remediate damage, making it “Like it never even happened,” for both commercial and residential customers.
