Mold, Water, & Air Duct Cleaning in Des Plaines, IL
If you live in the Des Plaines area and you need an environmental cleaning company, you can trust the AdvantaClean brand. It's been around for more than 20 years, and in that time it has spread across the U.S. We're one of several locations in Illinois alone, and we're available 24/7 in case of emergencies. Below is an outline of what we do.
We're experts when it comes to mold remediation, and we carry equipment like HEPA-filtered vacuums and air scrubbers. The former will remove mold from your surfaces (it's most effective on non-porous surfaces), and the latter will capture any airborne spores. Before leaving, our team will wipe down every surface with an antimicrobial chemical, which has EPA approval and won't harm your health.
If you're about to buy or sell a property, you'll probably be required to get a mold inspection. That's where we come in. We have a great eye for the most common species of mold and can normally identify one based on sight and smell alone. Our mold testing kits, by measuring the amount of contaminants in the atmosphere, will alert us to any infestations.
If you're wondering how you might fortify your property against mold, consider a service like crawl space encapsulation. Our vapor barriers will keep water from condensing on your walls, and by blocking up any unnecessary vents, it will even lower humidity.
Water Damage Restoration
From natural disasters to spills to plumbing leaks, we've pretty much seen it all. Our IICRC certification and MICRO certification allow us to safely treat water damage and effectively prevent mold and mildew growth. We'll begin with a prompt water removal, dry the interior, and move any damaged belongings outside to be dried and sanitized. Floodwaters can bring all kinds of bacteria, but using methods like steam cleaning and products like chlorine bleach, we'll eliminate them.
Mitigation also extends to the areas behind walls and under the floorboards. We'll track down seepage, get rid of wet insulation, and pinpoint hidden leaks. Basements also get our special attention because of their high humidity and susceptibility to flooding. Basement waterproofing is one service we provide that can keep your walls from being damaged.
If your situation is covered by insurance, let us help you file your claim. We'll advise you not to throw anything away, as it can be used to back up your claim.
Air Duct Cleaning
Air duct and dryer vent cleaning are two jobs that you'll want to have done on a regular basis. In both cases, debris buildup can affect the performance of the system that the duct or vent is connected to. Lint is a flammable material and poses the greatest threat of all. No matter how long your duct or vent is, our team will do a thorough job of removing the debris.
