Trust PuroClean of Pittsburgh, PA for your Water Damage Restoration

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.

Water Removal Process: PuroClean of Pittsburgh, PA‘s IICRC certified technicians strongly care for your property and belongings while being sure that water damage, both visible and invisible, is restored.

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, possibly impact indoor air quality, and may ultimately result in compromised occupant health issues. 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 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 clean and safe 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: We strive to practice transparency so that everyone involved are fully informed and able to make crucial decisions.

PuroClean Emergency Flood and Related Water Damage Repair Services in Pittsburgh, PA

Water Damage Assessment:

  • 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 Pittsburgh, PA

To extract the standing water from your affected area, we start by using strategically placed high-grade water removing equipment that quickly removes the water.

  • Once the water has been removed, any affected areas and belongings are removed to be stored or discarded. This first step takes place immediately and is achieved using our advanced pumping machines. Our technicians start water removal immediately using our powerful commercial water pumping equipment. Upon completion of the water removal procedure, PuroClean will remove all damaged structures and/or belongings whether they are to be stored or discarded.
  • Once the water is fully removed from your property, the equipment is removed, and the pumped water will be discarded at an environmentally safe location.

Drying and Dehumidification

When all areas requiring this process have been identified, they are isolated and prepped for drying and dehumidification.

  1. This process requires all belongings to be removed 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 trapped water will be removed by the machines. These machines are very loud.
  3. The water is pulled into the air by these powerful 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 in a separate location.
  4. Only after monitoring humidity levels and confirming that the levels have returned to normal, your items will be returned to their 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.
