AdvantaClean of Des Plaines Case Studies
Location: Streamwood, Illinois 60107
Problem: This home was in need of an air duct cleaning.
Solution: An air duct cleaning was performed to remove all of the dust and contaminants that had been building up over time. This air duct cleaning will help to improve efficiency of heating/cooling systems and also help our customers by removing allergens and other irritants from the ducts of the home.
Location: Carpentersville, IL 60110
Problem: This customer was dealing with mold on her window sills.
Solution: Remediation of the mold in the window sills was performed. Look at the difference!
Location: Bloomingdale, IL 60108
Problem: The window in this home was leaking water down the drywall. This caused damage to the drywall and for mold to begin growing.
Solution: Our technicians removed the contaminated drywall and performed a mold remediation on the framing to halt any further mold growth until a solution can be determined for relieving the moisture from the window.
Location: Carpentersville, IL 60110
Problem: The customer had water leaking behind the shower/tub surround which caused mold on the drywall behind it.
Solution: Our technicians began by removing the tub surround to determine the extent of the mold behind it. After discovering that the drywall was covered in mold, our technicians proceeded with removing the drywall and then the tub. The tub was removed in order to find out if the mold had continue to spread. After the contaminated materials were removed, a full remediation was performed to rid the area of any remaining mold.
Location: Stokiie, IL 60077
Problem: This commercial building called for a routine exhaust vent cleaning.
Solution: Our technicians went in and cleaned the vent by removing the accumulated lint, leaving the vent looking brand new.
Location: Crystal Lake, IL 60014
Problem: Due to poor ventilation in the bathroom of this home, mold began growing on the ceiling. There was no bathroom fan installed to pull the humidity out of the room.
Solution: Remediation was performed on the ceiling of the bathroom. In addition, AdvantaClean recommended that the customer has a bathroom fan with a timer installed and connected up to a roof cap vent with insulated duct work to prevent further damage to the bathroom or new damage to the attic.
Location: Crystal Lake, IL 60011
Problem: The customer came to us with condensation on the duct work in his crawl space. After further examination, mold was discovered in the crawl space as well.
Solution: In order to solve this problem, our technicians used HEPA vacuums to remove loose mold spores. Next they applied a non-toxic and hydrogen forming cleanser to remove the mold. Lastly, a mold stain remover was used to remove any pigment staining that was left behind by the mold.
In order to keep the moisture out of the crawl space, our technicians encapsulated it by adding a liner to the walls and installing drain fabric on the floor. The great part about this is that it will help diffuse soil gases, such as radon and can help reflect heat from the crawl space. The encapsulation will also keep out bugs and any moisture that could cause mold!
Location: Elburn, IL 60199
Problem: This attic was coated in heavy black mold.
Solution: Our technicians used our three-step cleaning process to remediate this mold. First, using HEPA vacuums to remove any loose spores. Second, a non-toxic and biodegradable hydrogen forming cleaner is used to pull the mold from its root system. Lastly, a stain remover was used to get rid of the remaining pigment staining that was left behind from the mold.
Location: Elgin, IL 60123
Problem: The attic contained large amounts of mold.
Solution: In order to remediate the mold, our technicians first used HEPA vacuums to remove the loose mold spores. Next, a mold stain remover was used to minimize the pigment staining left behind from the mold. Then, the technicians used a non-toxic, biodegradable hydrogen forming cleaner to suspend the mold from its root system. This helps to prevent the recurrence of mold in the attic. Lastly, the technicians applied a mold resistant coating to the attic. This creates a permanent, moisture-resistant barrier and helps prevent mold growth.
Location: Sycamore, IL 60178
Problem: Mold spores had contaminated the attic. This caused a significant staining issue on the decking and joists. Due to an improper amount of insulation, elevated moisture levels allowed the mold to grow exponentially.
Solution: The customer took care of the insulation problem himself. Our team then used our three step process of HEPA vacuuming, applying OxyPrep and OxyPar. This process was able to significantly diminish the mold staining, while removing the mold spores from the wood in the attic.
