PuroClean QuickDry System™

Our QuickDry systems are designed to dry affected structural materials and contents and in a timely and effective manner can include:

  • A thorough assessment and inspection of the structure to determine what’s wet and how wet structural materials and contents are with infrared cameras and moisture meters.
  • The removal of standing water.
  • The application of specialized drying equipment.
  • Daily inspections and monitoring until materials have reached their pre-loss condition and established drying goals.

Water Damage Restoration and Removal Process: PuroClean of Augusta, GA‘s certified technicians strongly care for your property and belongings while making sure water damage, both visible and invisible, is restored.

Mold and Odor Removal: Water losses not handled promptly and dried down quickly can lead to additional damage such as microbial growth, as well as cause structural components to lose their integrity, potentially impact indoor air quality, and may ultimately result in compromised occupant health issues. PuroClean’s IICRC certified technicians follow industry standards to properly remediate mold that has infected and/or damaged and return the property to a pre-loss condition. Once a scope of remediation and repair has been determined, they will implement engineering controls and containment to prevent cross-contamination to unaffected sections of a building utilizing negative pressure with HEPA air filtration devices. A remediation protocol is developed to remove contaminants by:

  • The removal of compromised materials and contents per industry standards.
  • A thorough cleaning using HEPA air filter devices and HEPA vacuums.
  • A thorough cleaning of all surfaces with cleaning solutions that can include EPA registered disinfectants, followed by another HEPA vacuuming of all surfaces.

Many people use bleach to clean mold; however, this is ineffective as bleach doesn’t kill the spores; it only bleaches them. PuroClean’s goal is to return your property to a clean and safe condition.

Odors are a sign that something could still be wet. If something has a musty, pungent odor, it can indicate microbial issues that can create MVOC’s (microbial volatile organic compounds) and cause health-related issues. PuroClean’s approach is to follow industry standards to develop the right scope of repair for your business or home, which includes employing specialized equipment, cleaning practices, followed by recommending a clearance test to ensure your property has reached the desired goal.

Water Damage Restoration Assessments:

  • Our technicians will first conduct a thorough assessment, perform daily inspections and monitoring to develop drying strategies and answer: What’s wet, how wet is it, is it drying, and has it reached its dry standard.
  • The assessment helps determine what damaged material may need to be removed due to structural integrity issues, damage not restorable, or contamination. Our goal is to dry all materials such as drywall, wood, carpet and padding, baseboards, furniture, insulation, furniture, upholstery, and more, providing they are not contaminated, or structurally compromised according to industry standards.

Emergency Extraction of Water in Augusta, GA

To extract the standing water from your home or business, we start using strategically located high-grade water removing equipment that expeditiously eliminates the water.

  • Our specialized pumping equipment will be used to remove all standing water right away upon arrival. Your damaged belongings will be removed to be stored or discarded.
  • Once the water is completely removed from the premises, the equipment is removed, and the pumped water will be disposed of at an environmentally safe location.

Drying and Dehumidification

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

  1. The moving of belongings and upholstery will be necessary to ensure that the process can be thoroughly completed.
  2. Air moving machines will be placed strategically in the most affected areas. The areas that contain the majority of the water will be the focus to pull out trapped water. Remember, these machines are very loud.
  3. These powerful air movers are specially designed to increase evaporation in the given space and create airflow so dehumidifiers can be most effective. The water that was removed is disposed of by our technicians at a different location.
  4. PuroClean techs will put back any relocated items to their original location once moisture levels are normal. Our technicians monitor humidity levels closely during the drying process to ensure proper drying is taking place.

Final Cleaning Processes

Odors can form in a carpet that has been water damaged very easily due to soils and potentially from other issues such as mildew and may spread beyond the affected area to your entire home or business. PuroClean’s professional cleaning, deodorizing, and spot removal process will safely and effectively remove soils and organics that are odor-causing.

  • Our technicians will begin with a complete inspection and dry vacuuming of your carpet.
  • To properly repair the affected carpet, where needed, your furniture may require repositioning.
  • Pre-treatments may be required for heavily soiled areas, spots, or pet odors.
  • Post cleaning treatments can include textile or fiber protection, the cleaning of hard surfaces and contents that can help protect and prolong the value of your property.
