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.

During our Process of Water Removal: The PuroClean of Bartlett, IL property certified water damage service professionals are there to make sure that the obvious and hidden water damaged areas of your home and property are restored – while giving special care to all of your belongings and property.

Mold and Odor Removal: Water losses not handled in a timely manner and dried down quickly can lead to secondary 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. 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 determined, they will implement engineering controls and containment to prevent cross-contamination to unaffected sections 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 doesn’t kill the spores; it only bleaches them. PuroClean’s mission is to return your property to a safe and clean condition.

Odors are an indicator 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 Assessments:

  • 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.

Bartlett, IL Emergency Water Extraction

We begin by removing any standing water present on your premises using high-grade equipment strategically placed to extract all water from the premises.

  • The first step calls for immediate water removal through our advanced pumping machines. Once the water is removed, all affected belongings and structures will be removed and stored or discarded.
  • The equipment will be removed upon completion and the PuroClean technicians will discard the water at another location.

Drying & Dehumidification

Once all areas needing attention have been identified, the areas are isolated and prepped for drying and dehumidification.

  1. To ensure this step can be completely performed, relocating items and upholstery will be necessary.
  2. When ready, the PuroClean technician will place air moving machines around the isolated area. Keep in mind that these machines are loud. The air movers will be concentrated on parts of the house or business that contain moisture to displace any trapped water.
  3. Following this, 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 is to be disposed of by the PuroClean professional in another location.
  4. To make sure that everything is drying, a PuroClean technician will closely monitor moisture levels. Once moisture levels are back to normal, all removed items will be placed back to their original locations.

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.
