PuroClean QuickDry System™

Our QuickDry systems is designed to dry affected structural materials and contents and in a timely and effective manner can include:

  • A thorough assessment and inspection of the structure to determine what’s wet and how wet structural materials and contents are with infrared cameras and moisture meters.
  • The removal of standing water.
  • The application of specialized drying equipment.
  • Daily inspections and monitoring until materials have reached their pre-loss condition and established drying goals.

The Water Removal Process: The PuroClean of Barrington, IL has certified water removal technicians that will ensure the visible and invisible water damage is restored, while making sure to care for your property and belongings.

Mold and Odor Removal: Water losses not handled in a timely manner and dried down quickly can lead to additional damage such as microbial growth, as well as cause structural components to lose their integrity, possibly impact indoor air quality, and may ultimately result in compromised occupant health issues to develop. PuroClean’s IICRC certified technicians follow industry standards to properly remediate mold that has infected and/or damaged and return the property to a pre-loss condition. Once a scope of remediation and repair has been established, they will implement engineering controls and containment to prevent cross-contamination to unaffected areas of a building utilizing negative pressure with HEPA air filtration devices. A remediation protocol is developed to remove contaminants by:

  • The removal of compromised materials and contents per industry standards.
  • A thorough cleaning using HEPA air filter devices and HEPA vacuums.
  • A thorough cleaning of all surfaces with cleaning solutions that can include EPA registered disinfectants, followed by another HEPA vacuuming of all surfaces.

A lot of people use bleach to clean mold; however, this is an ineffective approach as bleach does not kill the spores; it only bleaches them. PuroClean’s mission is to return your property to a safe and clean condition.

Odors are a sign that something could still be wet. If something has a musty pungent odor it can indicate microbial issues that can create MVOC’s (microbial volatile organic compounds) and can cause health related issues. PuroClean’s approach is to follow industry standards to develop the right scope of repair for your home or business, which includes employing specialized equipment, cleaning practices, followed by recommending a clearance test to ensure your property has reached the desired goal.

Water Damage Assessment:

  • Our technicians will first conduct a thorough assessment, perform daily inspections and monitoring to develop drying strategies and answer: What’s wet, how wet is it, is it drying, and has it reached its dry standard.
  • The assessment helps determine what damaged material may need to be removed due to structural integrity issues, damage not restorable, or contamination. Our goal is to dry all materials such as drywall, wood, carpet and padding, baseboards, furniture, insulation, furniture, upholstery, and more, providing they are not contaminated, or structurally compromised according to industry standards.

Emergency Extraction of Water in Barrington, IL

We begin by extracting any standing water found in your home or business using high-grade equipment strategically placed to extract all water from the premises.

  • Our specialized pumping equipment will be immediately used to remove all standing water right away upon arrival. Your affected property will be removed to be stored or discarded.
  • The equipment is taken away upon completion and the PuroClean technicians will discard the water at another location.

Drying and Dehumidification

Once all areas requiring this process have been identified, these premises are isolated and prepped for drying and dehumidification.

  1. The moving of belongings and upholstery are required to ensure that the process can be finished completely.
  2. When ready, the PuroClean professional will place air moving machines around the affected premises. Keep in mind that these machines are quite noisy. The air movers will be focusing on areas of the house or business that contain moisture to displace any trapped water.
  3. Next, the water will be pulled into the air by the air movers, which are specially designed to increase evaporation in the given space and create airflow so dehumidifiers can be most effective. All of the water pulled out will be disposed of by the PuroClean technician in another location.
  4. Only after monitoring the humidity and confirming that the levels have returned to normal, your items and property will be returned to their original location.

Final Cleaning Processes

Odors can form in a carpet that has been water damaged very easily due to soils and potentially from other issues such as mildew and may spread beyond the affected area to your entire home or business. PuroClean’s professional process of cleaning, deodorizing and spot removal will safely and effectively remove soils and organics that are odor-causing.

  • Our technicians will begin with a complete inspection and dry vacuuming of your carpet.
  • To properly repair the affected carpet, where needed, your furniture may require repositioning.
  • Pre-treatments may be required for heavily soiled areas, spots, or pet odors.
  • Post cleaning treatments can include textile or fiber protection, the cleaning of hard surfaces and contents that can help protect and prolong the value of your property.
