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 Reston, VA 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 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.

Many 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 mission 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 home or business, which includes employing specialized equipment, cleaning practices, followed by recommending a clearance test to ensure your property has reached the desired goal.

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.

Reston, VA Emergency Water Extraction

We begin by strategically placing high grade water removal equipment to quickly get rid of standing water.

  • Once 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 carried out using our advanced pumping machines. 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 regardless if you’re keeping or trashing them.
  • Upon completion, the equipment will be removed and the water will be discarded elsewhere by PuroClean’s employees.

Dehumidification and Drying

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

  1. This procedure calls for all belongings to be relocated to thoroughly complete the water removal.
  2. PuroClean technicians will place air moving machines, focusing on the most affected areas. The most highly affected areas will be the focus, and hidden moisture will be removed by the machines. These machines are very loud.
  3. Next, the water will be 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. All of the water pulled out will be disposed of by the PuroClean professional in another location.
  4. PuroClean technicians will put back any relocated property to where they belong once moisture levels return to normal. The technicians monitor humidity levels closely during the drying process to ensure proper drying is taking place.

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.
