AdvantaClean of Omaha South NE Our Work
Our customer realized they had a mold problem in their basement after a recent home inspection. We discovered mold on the drywall in the water meter closet, and on the bathroom vanity and drywall. After properly establishing containment, we removed the mold impacted materials. The space was also thoroughly hepa-vacuumed and scrubbed with anti-microbial. Our customer was able to then get their property sold in a timely manner.
Our customer recently purchased a home that they intended to use as an Air BnB. While making the house ready for guests, they noticed that the inside of the duct work was filthy. Using our hepa-vacuum, compressed air whips, and negative pressure, we were able to completely clean the customer's air ducts.
We performed an air duct cleaning for a customer at the conclusion of their renovation project. The customer was primarily concerned with construction debris build-up due to the renovation.
We removed all the registers and taped over the air duct openings to put the HVAC system under negative pressure. We then used an air whip to push all the dirt and debris to our Hepa-Vacuum.
The customer was amazed at how much dirt and debris we were able to remove upon completion!
A commercial property management company is a regular customer of ours, and they contacted us when one of their locations experienced a sewer backup. We mobilized within an hour of receiving the call. The waste and standing water was extracted, and the affected area was then sanitized with anti-microbial. A dehumidifier and air movers were then left for a few days to ensure the salvageable surfaces were properly dried.
A new homeowner contaced us to perform a duct cleaning in their home. The had just purchased the house, which was built in the 1960's, and reported that the air ducts had never been cleaned. We were also told that the previous owners had long-haired dogs, and our customer was concerned about dander and dirt build up in the ducts.
After a thorough cleaning, we were able to show the customer how much dirt and pet hair had accumulated in the air ducts. They were shocked at the amount, and decided to make yearly air duct cleaning part of their routine.
Our customer was cleaning out their cabinets when they found mold damage throughout. We determined that water intrusion from outside was the cause of the damage. After building a containment, we removed all porous materials that were mold impacted. We then hepa-vacuumed and wiped down all of the flat surfaces with an anti-microbial agent. After the exterior water leaks are corrected at the property, we will return to re-build the basement back to its original state.
The homeowner discovered a leak in their basement bathroom. The toilet leak had gone undetected for several months, and mold was allowed to form on the carpet and walls of the bathroom. After establishing containment, we removed all non-salvageable materials. We then hepa-vacuumed and scrubbed the space with an anti - microbial. An encapsulant was also used on framing with visible water damage.
Our client was trying to put their house on the market, and discovered they had mold in the bathroom during a pre-inspection. We constructed a localized containment, under negative pressure, prior to any demolition. All mold impacted materials were bagged and removed from the property. We then hepa-vacuumed all debris and sanitized the space with an EPA approved anti-microbial.
We experienced heavy rains in the area and our customer contacted us after discovering standing water in the finished basement. We began by removing all of the contents out to the garage. All standing bulk water was then extracted and pumped out of the basement. The carpet pad was determined to be unsalvageable, and was bagged and disposed of. We left air movers and dehumidifiers running for several days until the remaing carpet and drywall were dried completely.
Our client contacted us for duct cleaning after they discovered the vents in their recently purchased home had never been cleaned. We were able to successfully remove all of the dust, debris, and pet hair that had accumulated over the years. We also applied an anti-microbial agent to the air ducts after debris removal. Duct Cleaning success!

Problem: We were contacted to perform a Covid 19 Sanitization after an individual positive for coronavirus had been in a commercial building. The property had to close for the remainder of the day after receiving testing confirmation. Our client wanted sanitization to be performed immediately so that the property could resume normal function the following day.
Solution: We mobilized immediately, and were onsite within one hour of receiving the call. After donning full PPE we wiped all major touch-points and horizontal surfaces with a virucide.

Problem: A piece inside a toilet broke, causing water to overflow. This happened overnight, so it was many hours before our customer realized what had happened. The toilet was also located on the top level of the home, which caused water to leak from the upstairs to the main level and the basement below. Carpet, carpet pad, and drywall ceiling became saturated with water.
Solution: The customer requested that we remove the damaged carpet, as they were planning on replacing it in the future anyway. We extracted the bulk water from the carpet and pad, then bagged and removed those items. The drywall ceiling could be salvaged since it was not insulated. We directed air movers to the ceiling and wet wall materials. Dehumidifiers were also used to collect the moisture evaporating out of the wet ceiling and walls. At the end of the job we used moisture meters to verify that all drying goals had been achieved.

Problem: A competing restoration company performed a mold remediation in the basement. The homeowner contacted us over concerns that the original company had not completely removed the mold presence in the basement. When we arrived we inspected the remaining drywall behind the wall paneling, and found that mold was still present.
Solution: We first established containment in the basement with the use of plastic sheeting and air scrubbers. The mold impacted drywall and insulation was then completely removed from the home. Finally, we cleaned the entire area with anti - microbial solution and hepa-vacuums. Additionally, we pointed out areas of concern for moisture intrusion so that the homeowner could ensure that potential sources of water damage were eliminated.

Problem: A previous customer of ours referred us to his friend who was purchasing a rental property. Mold was found in the attic during the home inspection. We went out to give the buyer a quote on remediation so that he could determine whether or not to purchase the property.
Solution: The new home buyer realized that he could have us perform the attic mold remediation and still have a quality home. We began by covering the insulation in the attic with a layer of poly. Areas in the attic with visible mold were then hepa-vacuumed and scrubbed with an anti - microbial. A peroxide based stain remover was also applied to the attic sheathing. The new homeowner also improved the insulation in the attic so that he would not have any new mold issues in the future.

Problem: The homeowner's basement flooded during periods of heavy snow melt in March. After removing the wet carpet they realized there was mold present on several of the basement walls. A independent testing company was consulted, and they confirmed the mold presence in the basement.
Solution: After reviewing the recommendations from the independent testing company, we came up with a remediation protocol. All mold impacted drywall and porous materials were removed from the home. The entire basement was then hepa-vacuumed and damp wiped with anti - microbial solution. The independent testing company then came out to do a post remediation assessment, and they confirmed that all mold had been removed from the basement.

Problem: A new homeowner discovered that her bathroom vents were exhausting directly into the attic. An insulation contractor also found that the attic was inadequately insulated and sealed. These factors were allowing too much humidity and heat to build up in the attic, which over time led to mold growth.
Solution: We advised the homeowner to address the humidity and moisture issues first so that mold would not return in the attic after remediation. The insulation in the attic was covered with a poly liner before remediation began. Areas of the attic with visible mold growth were hepa-vacuumed and damp wiped with Microban anti - microbial solution. Our customer was left satisfied that her problem was resolved with the added insulation, bath fan ventilation addressed, and our remediation services within the attic.
Location: Omaha, NE 68144
Problem: We were contacted when a homeowner noticed mold forming on the registers of her HVAC system. Upon evaluation it was determined that the humidifier was set too high on the system. The elevated humidity, in conjunction with a build up of dust in the air ducts over the years led to the mold presence.
Solution: The first thing we did was show the homeowner how to turn down the humidifier on her HVAC system. We also recommended running a De-humidifier during the spring and summer seasons. Finally we performed a full air duct cleaning of the homeowners' HVAC system.
