Restoring hope through deep community involvement and disaster mitigation

When a fire rages, water floods in, mold invades, or a dangerous biohazard has occurred, we hope you will think of two names to get you through your emergency: PuroClean and Keegan Trudgen. At PuroClean of Lincoln Park/Bucktown, we break the mold when it comes to property damage restoration services. We look, act, and operate in a professional manner that is as squeaky clean as the services we provide.

But most importantly, you can count on our compassion. We know how heart-breaking property damage can be. PuroClean of Lincoln Park/Bucktown understands that water, fire, mold, and property damage is an unexpected and stressful disruption. That is why we are always sympathetic and respectful.

It’s also why we rush to your rescue, using the latest equipment and our highly-trained skills to clear it away, clean it up, dry it out, get rid of it, and make it healthy again, so you can get on with your life. Overall, our goal is to restore your property and hope. Our role is beyond just repairing the property — it’s also repairing lives.

Furthermore, we listen and communicate with our clients to ensure the highest quality service and professionalism. We provide a predictable and systematic recovery process. Our team does all that is necessary to effectively remediate their homes. But, remember: we avoid unnecessary demolition and placement of extra equipment.
