PuroClean QuickDry System™

Our QuickDry System™ is designed to dry affected structural materials and contents in a timely and effective manner. It includes:

  • 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.

Our Water Removal Process

PuroClean of Greer’s property certified water damage service professionals are there to ensure that the obvious and hidden water-damaged areas of your property are restored while giving special care to all your belongings and property.

Mold and Odor Removal

Water losses not handled in a timely manner and dried down quickly can lead to additional damage such as microbial growth, cause structural components to lose their integrity, and potentially impact indoor air quality.

They may ultimately result in compromised health issues developing in occupants. 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 established, 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 an ineffective strategy as bleach does not kill the spores; it only bleaches them. PuroClean’s mission is to restore your property cleanly and safely.

Odors are an indicator 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 health-related issues. PuroClean’s approach is to follow industry standards to develop the proper scope of repair for your business or home, which includes employing specialized equipment and cleaning practices, followed by recommending a clearance test to ensure your property has reached the desired condition.

Water Damage Assessment:

  • Our technicians will first conduct a thorough assessment, perform daily inspections and monitoring to develop drying strategies, and answer the following: 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 require removal 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 Greer, SC

We begin by removing any standing water on your premises using specially designed equipment strategically placed to extract all the standing water from the premises.

  • PuroClean’s 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 completed, the equipment will be removed and the water will be discarded elsewhere by PuroClean’s professionals.

Dehumidification and Drying

Areas to be dried and dehumidified are marked, isolated, and prepped to be our focus for drying and dehumidification.

  1. Your belongings and upholstery need to be moved to ensure the process can be completely finished.
  2. A PuroClean technician will assess the marked off premises and choose locations for the powerful air movers. Areas of the home or business that contain the most moisture and trapped water will be the key focus, to pull out trapped water. Remember, these air movers are quite loud.
  3. Following this, 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. PuroClean technicians will put back any moved items to their original location once moisture levels return to normal. Our technicians closely monitor humidity levels during this drying process to ensure proper drying.

Final Cleaning Processes

Odors can form in a carpet that has been water damaged very quickly 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.

PuroClean’s Dos and Don’ts of Water Damage in Greer, SC

Water damage restoration is very important, but the safety of all parties is our first priority. Whether mitigating or restoring water damage, the following tips will help reduce the risk of you suffering a setback due to heavy rain, flood, faulty plumbing, leaking AC, or roof.

What To Do:

  • Shut Off Your Water: Turn off the home’s water source and call a plumber for repairs.
  • Be Extra Careful: Watch your step as floors may be slippery and wet. Keep a lookout for obstacles and any exposed wiring. USE CAUTION.
  • Remove Excess Water: Mop up as much water as possible. In colder weather, open windows to speed drying; in hot weather, switch on your air conditioner, if safe.
  • Upholstery Should Be Propped Up: Any loose cushions and upholstered furniture should be propped up in a dry place.
  • Deal with Area Rugs and Obstacles: Take out any area rugs and pick up all items that may be sitting on the floor.
  • Dry Storage Containers: Storage containers like wet suitcases and storage bins should be opened and dried in the sunlight, if possible.
  • Protect Your Valuables: Paintings, artwork, and any other valuables should be moved to a safe, dry place.
  • Dry Wet Clothing: Quickly dry all wet clothes. Hang leather goods and furs to dry at room temperature.
  • Protect Your Furniture: Place aluminum foil or plastic under furniture legs on wet carpeting. Open (but don’t force) drawers and cabinet doors to dry out the inside.
  • Contact PuroClean ASAP: Call PuroClean of Greer. Experienced technicians highly trained in water damage are ready and waiting to come to you.

Do Not Do:

  • Do Not Vacuum: You should not use a traditional household vacuum cleaner. Only use a wet vac, the type that is specifically made to handle water.
  • Do Not Touch Outlets or Plugs: Don’t plug or unplug any electrical appliances or touch anything that is plugged in already.
  • Do Not Operate Electrical Appliances: Don’t use TVs, radios, computers, ceiling fans, or any electrical appliances, especially while standing on wet carpets or floors, particularly concrete or tile floors.
  • Do Not Turn Up the Heat: Keep interiors as cold as possible, as mold grows with heat and moisture.

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 sudden and accidental damage (such as water heater ruptures or pipe bursts). However, flood damage is NOT covered by standard homeowners’ policies, no matter the water source. Also, the water damage that results from a lack of maintenance is not covered on a typical homeowner’s insurance policy.

PuroClean QUICKDRY SYSTEM™

Our PuroClean QuickDry System™ uses applied psychrometric science — a proven process that properly manages dehumidification and temperature to effectively and efficiently facilitate drying, helping ensure the best possible outcome. *We can save almost everything: drywall, wood, carpets, and most contents!

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.

We measure and log the moisture content of materials and monitor the progress so we know the actual drying time and ensure restoration to the appropriate dry standard.

The PuroClean QuickDry™ Guarantee — Back to Normal in Three Days or Less.* PuroClean will monitor and mitigate water damage to your property and in most cases have it back to normal in three days or less*. 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.
