Trust PuroClean of Detroit-Warren-Dearborn for your Water Damage Remediation

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.

The Water Removal Process: The PuroClean of Detroit-Warren-Dearborn has certified water removal technicians that will ensure the visible and invisible water damage is restored, while being respectful of 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. PuroClean’s IICRC certified technicians follow industry standards 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 approach as bleach does not kill the spores; it only bleaches them. PuroClean’s mission is to return your property to a safe and clean condition.

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 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.

Ongoing Communication: PuroClean of Detroit-Warren-Dearborn strives to be transparent in all its work so that all parties are aware and confident in making decisions.

PuroClean Emergency Flood and Related Water Damage Repair Services in Detroit-Warren-Dearborn

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 Detroit-Warren-Dearborn

Our technicians will start by removing all unwanted water from your premises. We strategically locate commercial grade water removal machines to remove the water as quickly as possible.

  • Our specialized pumping equipment will be immediately used to remove all standing water right away upon arrival. Your affected property will be removed to be 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

The next step is to identify, isolate and prep all areas that require drying and dehumidification.

  1. The moving of belongings and upholstery will be necessary to ensure that the process can be accurately done and completed.
  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. These air movers are specially designed to increase evaporation in the given space and create airflow so dehumidifiers can be most effective. The water removed is disposed of professionally by our technicians at a different location.
  4. Only after monitoring the humidity and confirming that the levels have returned to normal, your items will be returned to the original location.

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.

What To Do:

  • DO NOT USE APPLIANCES: DO NOT USE TVs, radios, computers, ceiling fans, or any other electrical appliances while standing on wet floors or carpets, particularly tile or concrete floors.

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, no matter the water source, is NOT covered by standard homeowners policies. Also, a standard homeowners insurance policy will not cover water damage that results from a lack of maintenance.
