PuroClean Emergency Flood and Related Water Damage Repair Services in Wood Dale

Removing Water From Your Property:

  • Our technicians will first remove damaged structure which will either be restored or discarded. Materials may include baseboards, insulation, furniture, upholstery, carpeting, carpet padding, fragile wood, drywall, and whatever else necessary.
  • Next, specialized tools like dehumidifiers and air movers are typically used during the drying process. When the damaged belongings and structure are removed, we begin drying and disinfecting the water affected property.
  • The mold affected areas are addressed next and are sanitized and restored in a timely manner to stop the mold from spreading.

Wood Dale Emergency Water Extraction

We begin by extracting any standing water found in your home or business using specially designed equipment, strategically placed to remove all water from the area.

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

Dehumidification and Drying

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

  1. This procedure calls for all belongings to be relocated to thoroughly complete the water removal.
  2. Air moving machines will be located strategically in the most appropriate locations. The areas that contain the most moisture will be the focus, to pull out trapped water. Remember, these machines are very loud.
  3. The water is extracted into the air by these powerful fans – Our technicians dispose of the water in another location.
  4. Only after monitoring humidity levels, and confirming the levels have returned to normal, your property will be returned to the original location.

Carpet Damage Restoration

Water damaged carpet is treated by Puroclean and returned to the original state during the carpet restoration process.

  1. Finding the source of the water damage is the first step, then determining if your carpet is salvageable or not.
  2. If the findings of step one show that the carpet is salvageable, any remaining water is removed through water extraction.
  3. After this, high-grade air-moving fans are used to remove the moisture from the carpet and prevent any mold growth.
  4. During the drying process, PuroClean of Wood Dale’s technicians will keep you and your insurance agent updated on how things are going.
  5. Once the carpet is dry, all equipment will be removed from the area, and all of your belongings will be put back into place.

Cleaning, Deodorizing and Spot Removal of Carpet

Water damaged carpets often form mildew, and this mildew often creates odors that spread quickly throughout the affected area and throughout your home or office. PuroClean can properly eliminate the odors through our proven process of cleaning, deodorizing and spot removal when needed.

  • The carpet cleaning process begins with a complete inspection and vacuuming of the area by a PuroClean technician.
  • To properly repair the affected carpet, where needed, any furniture will be removed.
  • If necessary, a pet odor and spot removal will be performed at this time.
  • Available textile or fiber protection is also available, that will protect and prolong the value of your carpet.

PuroClean’s Dos and Don’ts of Water Damage in Wood Dale

Water damage repair in Wood Dale is very important, but the safety of all parties is our number one priority. Whether mitigating or restoring water damage, the following tips will help reduce the risk of you suffering a setback due to a heavy rain, flood, problem plumbing, leaky AC, or roof.

To Do:

  • Shut Off Your Water: Shut off the home’s water source and call a plumber for repairs.
  • Be Cautious: Watch your step, as floors may be slippery. Also, watch for any trip and fall hazards and for any exposed electrical wires.
  • Remove Excess Water: Mop up as much water as possible. In colder weather, open windows to speed the drying process; in hot weather, if safe, switch on your Air Conditioning.
  • Upholstery should be propped up: Any loose cushions and upholstered furniture should be propped up in a dry place.
  • Remove obstacles – Remove all rugs: Pick up wet rugs and remove all items that may be sitting on the floor and could pose a treat when walking.
  • Dry Storage Containers: Any storage containers such as wet suitcases and storage bins should be opened and dried in the sunlight if at all possible.
  • Protect Valuables: Relocate any paintings and other artwork to a safe, dry place.
  • Dry Wet Clothing: Quickly dry all wet clothes. Hang leather goods and furs to dry at room temperature.
  • Furniture Protection: Put tin foil or some sort of plastic under all furniture legs that are touching wet carpets. Open any drawers and cabinet doors to dry out interiors (but do not force them open).
  • Call PuroClean Immediately: Call PuroClean of Wood Dale. Our trained technicians are highly skilled in Wood Dale water damage repair.

What Not To Do:

  • DON’T VACUUM: You shouldn’t use a traditional household vacuum cleaner. Only use a wet vac, the type that is specifically designed to handle water.
  • Don’t mess with electrical outlets: DO NOT unplug or plug any electrical cords or outlets and don’t touch anything that is plugged in.
  • DO NOT USE APPLIANCES: DO NOT USE TVs, radios, computers, ceiling fans, or any other electrical appliances while you are standing on wet floors or carpets, particularly tile or concrete floors.
  • Do Not turn up the heat: keep interiors as cold as possible, as mold grows in 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 damage that is sudden and accidental (such as water heater ruptures or pipe bursts). However, flood damage, no matter the source of the water, is NOT covered by standard homeowners’ policies. Also, the water damage that results from a lack of maintenance is not covered on a standard homeowner’s insurance policy.

Water Damage Restoration by PuroClean

Expert Restoration Service

PuroClean technicians are highly trained and certified, and use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to effectively remediate property damage.

The PuroClean QUICKDRY SYSTEM™

Our PuroClean QuickDry System™ uses applied psychrometric science. It is a proven process that manages dehumidification and temperature to quicken drying and help ensure the best possible outcome. *We can save almost everything: drywall, wood, carpets, and most contents!

The system uses advanced restoration equipment:

  • High-Capacity Air Movers create a vortex, similar to the motion of a tornado. This method speeds up the drying process.
  • A Low-Grain Refrigerant Dehumidifier draws in cool, wet air and blows out warm, dry air.

Additionally, we measure and log the moisture content of materials, and monitor and log progress. That helps us know the actual drying time and ensure restoration to the appropriate dry standard.

The PuroClean QuickDry™ Guarantee — Back to Normal in Three Days or Fewer.* PuroClean will monitor and mitigate water damage to your property and in most cases have it back to normal in three days or fewer*. Don’t wait, call us immediately.

We provide a complete estimate, including photos, to the agent or adjuster within 24-48 hours.

*Certain extreme conditions may warrant additional drying time and/or the removal of carpet pad and structural components.
