Removing Water From Your Property:

  • The initial thing our techs will do is remove damaged materials that will either be restored or thrown out. These materials include baseboards, insulation, furniture, upholstery, carpeting, carpet padding, fragile wood, drywall, and more.
  • After all water damaged items are clear, we begin the drying process followed by the disinfecting of the water damaged area. PuroClean professionals use high grade equipment such as industrial fans and dehumidifiers to aid in this process.
  • The areas with mold damage are addressed next and are sanitized and restored quickly to stop the spreading of mold.

Alexandria Emergency Water Extraction

We start out by strategically using commercial water removal equipment in order to quickly get rid of standing water.

  • After the water has been removed, any affected structures and property are removed to be stored or discarded. This first step happens right away and is performed using our commercial pumps. PuroClean will begin water removal immediately using our high tech commercial water pump machines. Upon the finishing of the water removal process, PuroClean will remove all damaged structures and/or belongings whether they are to be stored or discarded.
  • When the water is fully removed from the premises, the equipment is removed and the pumped water will be discarded at an environmentally safe location.

Drying and Dehumidification

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

  1. Relocation of belongings and upholstery will be necessary to ensure that the process can be accurately done and completed.
  2. Our professionals will place air moving machines, focusing on the most affected areas. The most highly affected areas will be the focus and trapped water will be removed by the machines. These machines are very loud.
  3. These fans suck the water out into the air and out of your property. The water that was removed is disposed of by our technicians at a separately location.
  4. PuroClean techs will put back any removed property to where they belong once moisture levels return to normal. Our technicians monitor the humidity levels closely during the process of drying to make sure that proper drying is taking place.

Carpet Restoration

Carpet restoration are the steps that PuroClean takes to take your water damaged carpet and restore it to its pre-damaged state.

  1. Finding the water damaged areas and determining whether your carpet is salvageable is the first step in this process.
  2. If carpet is restorable, any remaining water is removed through water extraction.
  3. To prevent mold growth on the carpet, the next step is to use commercial fans to eliminate remaining moisture.
  4. Our techs will keep you and your insurance company updated during the drying process.
  5. All belongings will be placed back into their original location and PuroClean of Alexandria will remove all the equipment once the carpet is dry.

  • A PuroClean technician will then remove the furniture required to fix the carpets.
  • If necessary, a pet odor and spot removal will be performed at this time.
  • Also, a textile and fiber protectant is available that will protect and prolong the value of your carpet.

PuroClean’s Dos and Don’ts of Water Damage in Alexandria

Water damage repair in Alexandria is very important, but the safety of everyone involved 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 rain event, flood, faulty plumbing, leaking AC, or roof.

To Do:

  • Shut off main water supply: Turn off your home’s water supply. You may need to call a plumber for repairs.
  • Be extra careful: Watch where you step as flooring may be wet and slick. Keep an eye out for obstacles and any exposed wiring. USE CAUTION.
  • Remove Excess Water: Mop up as much water as possible. In cool weather, open windows to speed the drying process; in hot weather, if safe, switch on your A/C.
  • Prop Up Upholstery: Remove all loose cushions and prop up upholstered furniture.
  • Remove obstacles – Remove rugs: Pick up any wet rugs and take out all items that may be sitting on the floor and/or in the main walkway area.
  • Dry Storage Containers: Open any wet suitcases or storage boxes; and, if at all possible, have them dry in the sun.
  • Protect Valuables: Relocate any paintings and other artwork to a safe, dry place.
  • Dry Wet Clothing: Quickly dry all wet garments. 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 drawers and cabinet doors to dry out interiors (but don’t force them open).
  • Call PuroClean Immediately: Call PuroClean of Alexandria. Our experienced techs are highly skilled in Alexandria water damage repair.

What You Should Not Do:

  • DON’T VACUUM: You should not use a regular household vacuum cleaner. Only use a wet vac, the type that is specifically made to deal with water.
  • Don’t mess with electrical outlets: DO NOT plug or unplug any electrical cords or outlets and don’t touch anything that’s plugged in.
  • Don’t Operate Any Electrical Appliances: DO NOT USE TVs, radios, computers, ceiling fans, or any electrical appliances while standing on wet carpets or floors, particularly concrete or tile floors.
  • DON’T USE YOUR HEAT: The cooler you can keep your affected area, the better. Warmer areas promote mold growth.

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 Water 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 water damage 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.
