Trust PuroClean of Pittsburgh, PA for your Water Damage Remediation

PuroClean QuickDry System™

Our QuickDry systems is 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.

The Water Removal Process: The PuroClean of Pittsburgh, PA has certified water removal technicians that will ensure the water damage that is both seen and hidden is restored, while respectfully caring for your property and belongings.

Mold and Odor Removal: Water losses not handled 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 to develop. PuroClean’s IICRC certified technicians follow industry best practices 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 areas 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.

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

Ongoing Communication: PuroClean of Pittsburgh, PA strives to practice transparency in all its work in order to ensure all parties are aware and confident in making decisions.

The Water Damage Assessment:

  • 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.

Drying and Dehumidification

Once all areas needing attention have been identified, the areas are isolated and prepped for drying and dehumidification.

  1. This process requires all belongings to be removed to thoroughly complete the water removal.
  2. When ready, the PuroClean professional will place air moving machines around the affected premises. Remember that these machines are loud. The air movers will be focusing on areas of the house or business that contain moisture to pull out any trapped water.
  3. Next, the water will be sucked out by the air movers, which are specially designed to increase evaporation in the given space and create airflow so dehumidifiers can be most effective. All of the water pulled out will be disposed of by the PuroClean employee in another location.
  4. Once moisture levels are normal, your PuroClean technicians will bring back relocated items and property to where they belong. These humidity levels are closely monitored by PuroClean technicians to make sure that things can get back to normal as soon as possible.

  • 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.

Although the repair of water damage in Pittsburgh, PA is a high priority, the safety of our customers and technicians is our most important goal.

What You Should Do:

  • Shut Off Water: Shut down your home’s water supply and call a plumber for repairs.
  • Be Cautious: Floors may be slippery so be sure to watch your step. Also, watch for any trip and fall hazards as well as for any exposed electrical wires.
  • Remove Water: Mop up as much water as possible. In colder 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.
  • Deal with Area Rugs and Obstacles: Remove rugs and pick up any items that are sitting on the floor.
  • Dry Storage Containers: Please open and dry all of your wet storage containers, bins, or suitcases. If possible, have them dry in the sun.
  • Protect Valuables: Move paintings and other artwork to a safe, dry place.
  • Dry Clothing: Quickly dry all articles of clothing. Hang fur and leather goods to dry at room temperature.

  • Call PuroClean Immediately: Call PuroClean of Pittsburgh, PA. Our trained techs are highly skilled in Pittsburgh, PA water damage repair.

What Not To Do:

  • Do not operate a vacuum cleaner: DON’T USE your basic household vacuum cleaner. You can use a wet vac or wet/dry vac that is created to handle water.

  • Do not use any appliances: DON’T touch or run any electrical appliances, such as televisions, computers, radios, fans, or anything that is or may be hooked to electric power – and ESPECIALLY while you are standing on any wet floor, regardless of the material.
  • Do not let it get too hot: Try to keep wet areas as cool as possible – hot, damp areas promote mold growth
