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.

During Our Water Removal Process: Our IICRC certified PuroClean of Council Bluffs, IA water damage restoration technicians ensure that the water damage to your property – both visible and invisible is restored, all while caring for your property and your belongings.

Mold and Odor Removal: Water losses not handled and dried down quickly can lead to secondary 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 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.

A lot of people use bleach to clean mold; however, this is an ineffective method as bleach does not 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.

PuroClean Emergency Flood and Related Water Damage Repair Services in Council Bluffs, IA

Water Damage 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 Council Bluffs, IA

We start out by strategically locating commercial water removal equipment in order to quickly rid your property of standing water.

  • The first step consists of immediate water removal with our advanced pumping machines. Once the water has been extracted, all damaged items and materials will be removed and stored or discarded.
  • Once completed, the equipment will be removed and the water will be disposed of off-site by PuroClean’s professionals.

Drying & Dehumidification

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

  1. To ensure this procedure can be completely performed, relocating items and upholstery will be necessary.
  2. When ready, the PuroClean technician will place air moving machines around the isolated area. Please note that these machines are quite noisy. The air movers will be focusing on areas of the house or business that contain moisture to pull out any trapped water.
  3. During our dehumidification process, the water is pulled into the air by the air movers, which are specially designed to increase evaporation in the given space and create airflow so dehumidifiers can be most effective. PuroClean technicians dispose of the water that was removed in a separate location.
  4. Once the moisture levels are normal, our technicians will bring back moved items and property to where they belong. These humidity levels are closely monitored by our technicians to make sure that things can get back to normal as quickly as possible.

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 process of cleaning, deodorizing and spot removal 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.
