Removing Water From Your Property:

  • Our technicians will first remove the damaged structure which will either be restored or discarded. Materials include baseboards, insulation, furniture, upholstery, carpeting, carpet padding, fragile wood, drywall, and anything else necessary.
  • Next, specialized equipment like dehumidifiers and air movers are typically used during the procedure of drying. When the damaged belongings and structure are removed, we begin drying and disinfecting the water damaged areas.
  • The mold affected areas are addressed next and are disinfected and restored in a timely manner to stop the spreading of mold.

Emergency Extraction of Water in Columbus

To extract the standing water from your affected area, we begin by using strategically placed high-grade water removing equipment that expeditiously eliminates the water.

  • After the water has been removed, any affected structures and property are relocated to be stored or thrown away. This first step happens right away and is carried out using our commercial pumps. Our technicians start water removal immediately using our high tech commercial water pump machines. Upon the finishing of the water removal procedure, PuroClean will remove all damaged structures and/or belongings whether they are to be stored or discarded.
  • The equipment is taken away upon completion and the PuroClean technicians will discard the water at another location.

Dehumidification and Drying

Then our fucus is to identify, isolate and prep all areas that up for drying and dehumidification.

  1. Your belongings and upholstery need to be moved to ensure the process can be completely executed.
  2. When ready, the PuroClean technician will place air moving machines around the isolated area. Keep in mind that these machines are loud. The fans will be concentrated on parts of the house or business that contain moisture to displace any trapped water.
  3. During the dehumidification process, the water is pulled into the air by the fans. Puroclean technicians dispose of all the excess water in a separate location.
  4. Once moisture levels return to normal, our technicians will replace relocated items and property to where they belong. These humidity levels are monitored closely by PuroClean technicians to ensure that things can get back to normal as quickly as possible.

Restoring Carpets

Water damaged carpet is fixed by Puroclean and returned to the original state during our carpet restoration process.

  2. Remaining water is removed from the carpet through water extraction. This will occur if we feel the carpet is salvageable.
  3. To prevent any mold growth, the next step is to use high-grade air-moving fans to eliminate remaining moisture.
  4. Our techs will keep you and your insurance agent in the loop during this drying process.
  5. Once the carpet is fully dry, furniture and belongings are moved back to their previous location. All equipment will be removed by PuroClean technicians.

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 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 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.
