Trust PuroClean of Burlington, WI for Your Water Damage Restoration

PuroClean QuickDry System™

Our QuickDry System™ is designed to dry affected structural materials and contents in a timely and effective manner. It includes:

    • 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.

Our Water Removal Process

PuroClean of Burlington’s certified water damage service professionals are there to ensure that the obvious and hidden water-damaged areas of your property are restored while giving special care to all your belongings.

Mold and Odor Removal

Water losses not handled in a timely manner can lead to additional damage such as microbial growth, cause structural components to lose their integrity, and potentially impact indoor air quality. Microbial growth may also result in compromised health issues developing in occupants.

PuroClean’s IICRC-certified technicians follow industry best practices to properly conduct a mold removal that has infected and/or damaged property and return it to its 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 sections of a building, utilizing negative pressure with high-efficiency particulate air (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.

Many people might use bleach to clean mold. However, this is an ineffective strategy as bleach does not kill the spores; it only bleaches them white. PuroClean’s mission is to restore your property cleanly and safely, using processes that ensure the mold infestation is eliminated entirely.

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 health-related issues. PuroClean’s approach is to follow industry standards to develop the proper scope of repair for your business or home. This includes employing specialized equipment and cleaning practices, followed by a clearance test to ensure your property has reached the desired condition.

Water Damage Assessment:

    • Our technicians will first conduct a thorough assessment, perform daily inspections and monitoring to develop drying strategies, and take note of what’s wet, how wet is it, if it is drying, and if it has reached its dry standard.
    • The assessment helps determine what damaged material may require removal 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 Burlington, WI

We begin by removing any standing water on your premises using specially designed equipment strategically placed to extract all the standing water from the premises.

    • PuroClean’s specialized pumping equipment will be used to remove all standing water. Your damaged belongings will be removed to be stored, restored, or discarded.
    • Once completed, the equipment will be removed and the water will be discarded elsewhere by PuroClean’s professionals.

Dehumidification and Drying

Areas to be dried and dehumidified are marked, isolated, and prepped to be our focus for drying and dehumidification.

    • Your belongings and upholstery are moved to ensure the process can be finished properly.
    • A PuroClean technician will assess the marked off premises and choose locations for the powerful air movers. Areas of the home or business that contain the most moisture and trapped water will be the key focus.
    • Following this, the water will be sucked out 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 team in another location.
    • PuroClean technicians will return any moved items to their original location once moisture levels return to normal. Our technicians closely monitor humidity levels during this process to ensure proper drying.

Final Cleaning Processes

Odors can form in a carpet that has been water damaged very quickly 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.

PuroClean’s Dos and Don’ts of Water Damage in Burlington, WI

Water damage mitigation is very important, but the safety of all parties is our first priority. Whether mitigating or restoring water damage, the following tips will help reduce the risk of you suffering a setback due to heavy rain, flood, faulty plumbing, leaking AC, or roof.

What to Do:

    • Shut Off Your Water: Turn off the home’s water source and call a plumber for repairs.
    • Be Extra Careful: Watch your step as floors may be slippery and wet. Keep a lookout for obstacles and any exposed wiring.
    • Remove Excess Water: Mop up as much water as possible. In colder weather, open windows to speed drying. In hot weather, switch on your air conditioner, if safe.
    • Upholstery Should Be Propped Up: Any loose cushions and upholstered furniture should be propped up in a dry place.
    • Deal with Area Rugs and Obstacles: Take out any area rugs and pick up all items that may be sitting on the floor.
    • Dry Storage Containers: Storage containers like wet suitcases and storage bins should be opened and dried in the sunlight, if possible.
    • Protect Your Valuables: Artwork, collectibles, and any other valuables should be moved to a safe, dry place.
    • Dry Wet Clothing: Quickly dry all wet clothes. Hang leather goods and furs to dry at room temperature.
    • Protect Your Furniture: Place aluminum foil or plastic under furniture legs on wet carpeting. Open (but don’t force) drawers and cabinet doors to dry out the inside.
    • Contact PuroClean ASAP: Call PuroClean of Burlington Experienced technicians highly trained in water damage are ready and waiting to come to you.

Do Not Do:

    • Do Not Vacuum: You should not use a traditional household vacuum cleaner. Only use a wet vacuum, the type that is specifically made to handle water.
    • Do Not Touch Outlets or Plugs: Don’t plug or unplug any electrical appliances or touch anything that is plugged in already.
    • Do Not Operate Electrical Appliances: Don’t use TVs, radios, computers, ceiling fans, or any electrical appliances, especially while standing on wet carpets or floors, particularly concrete or tile floors.
    • Do Not Turn Up the Heat: Keep interiors as cold as possible, as mold grows with heat and moisture.

Does homeowners insurance cover flooding or water damage? Do you work with insurance companies to minimize the cost and hassle?
Homeowners insurance provides coverage for sudden and accidental damage (such as water heater ruptures or pipe bursts). However, flood restoration is NOT covered by standard homeowners’ policies, no matter the water source. Also, the water damage that results from a lack of maintenance is not covered by a typical homeowner’s insurance policy.

Most Common Reasons For Water Damage In Your Property

Storm Damage and Flash Floods

Water damage may strike your property due to natural catastrophes such as tornadoes, hurricanes, and other phenomena. Strong winds and heavy rains can cause harm to your roof, causing rainwater to drain directly into your home or business. Worse, severe weather can sometimes result in flash flooding, particularly if your property is located in a flood-prone zone. Read our guide for what to do when flash floods strike.

Overflowing Bathtubs, Sinks, and Washing Machines

You would be surprised to know that at times, people living in multiple story units forget to turn the water off as they are preparing a bath and it overflows. Other times, appliances like washing machines fail, causing watr to spill out. These events end up flooding inside the walls, floors, and damaging drywall and ceiling materials as well as other home components. Head over to our blog to find out what actions to take if your washing machine overflows.

Pipes and Supply Line Leaks

The pipes on your property carry water throughout, so a leak or puncture can lead to significant damage. A leaking kitchen sink pipe might allow enough water to flow into the cabinet below it, potentially causing damage. A leak like this can cause significant water damage and the formation of a mold colony, as dry damp spaces are prime breeding grounds for mold spores. Learn how to detect if there is a leak leading to water damage within your walls.

Frozen Pipes

Frozen pipes are a common issue in the colder months that encounter. As the temperatures get lower, the water in pipes that are not well insulated can freeze. Water expands when it freezes, which damages the water lines, creating leaky pipes, and flooding the house. Read our tips on how to prevent pipes from freezing, and find tips about winter storm safety for homeowners.

Dangers of Not Resolving Water Damage

Blocked Drains and Sump Pumps

Hair, grease accumulation, toiletries, dirt, and other foreign objects can obstruct the drainpipe and prevent regular drainage. When clogged drains are not addressed promptly, they may easily back up and cause flooding and damage to your home’s interior. An inefficient, obstructed, damaged, or failing sump pump will leave your basement dealing with large quantities of water that cannot be drained. Being unable to evacuate the water can lead to costly flood damage. Here are some tips to help maintain your sump pump.

Extinguishing a Fire

Many people wouldn’t think of it, but a common side-effect of fire is dealing with heavy water damage. First Responders and emergency sprinkler systems douse the entirety of the property under considerable amounts of water in an effort to stop the fire. We also have had many events where people looking for a place to hang their clothes, use the pipes for the sprinkler system, which triggers the sprinklers, flooding many floors at times. Read our list of facts about home sprinkler systems.

Roof Leaks

The physical integrity of your roof is vital to maintaining conditions on the inside of your home. Over time, natural wear and tear will cause roofs to weaken and leaks to form. When the roof is breached, precipitation will enter your home and begin to cause damage in its wake. If the water damage is not addressed within 24-48 hours after the intrusion, the standing water and buildup of humidity may lead to mold growth. Find out what actions you should take if you discover a leak in your roof.

Ice Dams

Ice dams form on roofs during a cycle of snow precipitating, melting, then refreezing. This is caused by the heat of the attic rising upwards and causing the frozen snow to melt into liquid water. The liquid water runs off towards the edges of the roof but refreezes in the sub-freezing temperatures, resulting in a buildup of ice along the edges of the roof. This damming effect will then cause snow and ice to build up and put your roof in major jeopardy of being overloaded and damaged. Read our guide towards the most effective means of preventing ice dams on your roof.
