PuroClean Finishes Tornado Reconstruction Work in Naperville, IL

Water Restoration

The aftermath of a tornado can be just as devastating and overwhelming to deal with as the actual weather event itself. In a short amount of time, tornadoes can wreck property, shatter windows, and leave behind a mess that can take a long time to repair. A property restoration company can assist with commercial and residential reconstruction after a catastrophic event such as this occurs.

At PuroClean, we provide restoration and reconstruction services, such as water damage restoration and mold remediation, whenever an emergency arises. No matter the damage, our technicians are here to help you overcome your situation and restore your property.

The Backstory

On June 21, 2021, the city of Naperville, IL, was struck by an EF-3 tornado. A tornado of this magnitude is intense, with estimated winds of around 158-206 miles per hour.

Our client, an older retired couple, was out of the country when the tornado occurred. When their daughter visited and saw the home severely damaged, she informed the homeowners immediately. Then, she contacted a family friend, co-owner Tim Lohse and requested our services.

A Work in Progress

Upon arrival, our certified PuroClean technicians started the reconstruction process. We immediately boarded the home to prevent further damage.

The boarding of the windows protected the home from further damage.

Then, two weeks later, our team returned to the home to perform water mitigation and contents pack-out services. Contents cleaning and pack-outs is a featured service where we catalog, clean, deodorize, repack, and return your personal belongings to your home safely and efficiently.

During this time, the couple resided in temporary housing. Throughout their time in temporary accommodations, our crew was hard at work on the reconstruction of their home. Due to weather and material delays, the reconstruction process took longer than expected.

Fortunately, the project is almost complete, and we are finishing the couple’s back porch and window treatments this month.

A Glowing Review

The long-term reconstruction of a home can be a daunting task for any team. Nevertheless, our team made the job look easy with their constant communication with our clients and suppliers.

Our project manager, David Kummer, was the lead on the project from the beginning. Additionally, Tim Lohse maintained contact with the clients due to his relationship with them. Our team was highly coordinated and reassured the clients throughout the progress.

In the end, our clients were extremely pleased with our team and the reconstruction of their home. Their Facebook review stated, “One year ago today, our house was devastated by a tornado that shook not just our home, but our well-being as well. Thanks to PuroClean for their efficient help coordinating all our repairs, cleaning, etc.” We sincerely appreciate the thoughtful review!
