PuroClean Emergency Flood and Related Water Damage Restoration Services in Birmingham, AL

The Water Removal Process:

  • The first thing our techs will do is remove the damaged materials that will either be restored or discarded. These materials include baseboards, insulation, furniture, upholstery, carpeting, carpet padding, fragile wood, drywall, and more.
  • Next, specialized equipment like dehumidifiers and industrial fans are normally used during the procedure of drying. When the affected items and structure are removed, we start drying and sanitizing the water-affected property.
  • All areas affected by mold are then addressed, and the mold is abated and areas sanitized thoroughly and expeditiously to eliminate the chances of the mold spreading.

Emergency Extraction of Water in Birmingham

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

  • After the water has been removed, any affected areas and property are removed to be stored or thrown away. This first step happens right away and is achieved using our commercial pumps. Our technicians start water removal immediately using our high-tech commercial water pump machines. Upon completing the water removal procedure, PuroClean will remove all damaged structures and/or belongings regardless of whether you’re keeping or trashing them.
  • Once completed, we will remove the equipment, and the water will be disposed of off-site by PuroClean’s technicians.

Dehumidification and Drying

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

  1. The moving of belongings and upholstery are required to ensure that we can finish the process.
  2. Air moving machines will be placed strategically in the most appropriate locations. 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 fans suck the water into the air and out of your property. The water that we removed is disposed of by our technicians at a different location.
  4. Only after monitoring humidity levels and confirming the levels have returned to normal, your items will be returned to their original location.

Restoring Carpets

Water-damaged carpet is treated by PuroClean and returned to the original state during the carpet restoration process.

  1. Finding the source of the water damage is our first step, and deciding if we believe your carpet is salvageable or not.
  2. If the carpet is restorable, any additional water is removed through water extraction.
  3. Commercial grade air movers (fans) are then used to eliminate the leftover moisture within the carpet and prevent mold from growing.
  4. Our technicians will keep you and your insurance company updated during this drying process.
  5. Once the carpet is dry, we will remove all equipment from the area, and all belongings will be put back where they were.

Carpet Cleaning, Deodorization & Spot Removal

It is possible that any water damaged carpet may have mildew form on it, which can cause a bad odor to spread not only in the affected room but throughout the entire home or office. These odors can be eliminated from your carpet with our proper cleaning, deodorization, and/or spot removal.

  • The carpet cleaning process begins with a complete inspection and vacuuming of the area by our technician.
  • Then, we will remove all the furniture to restore your carpet.
  • Pet odor and spot removal, when needed, is then performed on your carpet.
  • Available fiber or textile protection is available, which will protect and prolong the value of your carpet.

Our Mold Removal Process

We at PuroClean of Birmingham will manage your Birmingham mold damage and ensure that your home or business is properly restored by following a rigid process that involves the following. Please note that getting a PuroClean certified tech on-site quickly to address water damage is essential to preventing mold growth.

  • We will start by performing a mold assessment, carefully inspecting your property for signs of mold. Once this is complete, we will conduct our full mold removal. This is where we thoroughly remove the mold from the site.
  • Once the mold is completely cleaned out, we move on to the deodorizing process. After all mold signs are gone, cleaning, sanitizing, and deodorization are done on all affected areas.
  • We then use HEPA air filtration and vacuuming tools to evaporate the water and eliminate the moisture.

PuroClean Birmingham’s Water Damage Dos and Don’ts

Water damage repair in Birmingham is very important, but the safety of everyone involved is our top priority. Whether mitigating or restoring water damage, the following tips will help lower the risk of you suffering a setback due to a heavy rain, flood, faulty plumbing, leaky AC, or roof.

To Do:

  • Shut Off Your Water: Shut down the home’s water supply and call a plumber for repairs.
  • Be extra careful: Watch where you step as the flooring may be slippery and wet. Keep a lookout for obstacles and any exposed wiring. USE CAUTION.
  • Water removal: Mop as much water as possible. In cooler weather, open windows to help speed up drying, and in hot weather, only if it’s safe to do so, put your air conditioning on.
  • Prop Up Upholstery: Take out all loose cushions and prop up upholstered furniture.
  • Eliminate obstacles – Remove all rugs: Pick up any wet rugs and remove all items that may be sitting on the floor and could pose a threat when walking.
  • 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: Relocate paintings and other art to a safe, dry place.
  • Dry Clothing: Immediately dry all garments. Hang fur and leather goods to dry at room temperature.
  • Furniture Protection: Put tin foil or some sort of plastic under all furniture legs touching wet carpets. Open any drawers and cabinet doors to dry out interiors (but do not force them open).
  • Contact PuroClean ASAP: Call PuroClean of Birmingham. Experienced technicians highly trained in Birmingham water damage are waiting to come to you.

Do Not Do:

  • DON’T VACUUM: You should not use a traditional everyday vacuum cleaner. Only use a wet vac, the type that is specifically made to handle water.
  • Don’t touch electrical outlets: Leave cords alone. If it’s plugged in, leave it and if it isn’t plugged in, leave it be. Don’t touch any cords at all.
  • Don’t use electrical devices or appliances: DO NOT touch or operate any electrical appliances, such as televisions, computers, radios, fans, or anything that appliance may hook to electric power – and ESPECIALLY while standing on any wet floor, regardless of the material.
  • Do not turn on your heat: The cooler you keep your affected area, the better. Warmer areas encourage mold growth.

Do homeowners insurance cover flooding or water damage? Do you work with insurance companies to minimize the cost and hassle?

Homeowners insurance provides coverage for sudden and accidental damage (such as water heater ruptures or pipe bursts). However, flood damage, no matter the water source, 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.
