PuroClean of Hoboken Emergency Flood and Related Water Damage Restoration and Repair Services
The Water Removal Process
The first thing our technicians will do is remove damaged materials that will either be restored or discarded. These materials include baseboards, insulation, furniture, upholstery, carpeting, carpet padding, fragile wood, drywall, and more.
After the damaged items are removed, we begin drying out the water and disinfecting the affected areas. Specialized tools like air movers and dehumidifiers are typically used in the drying process.
Our technicians will then handle mold damage in the water damage restoration process. Mold-infected surfaces will be disinfected and restored as quickly as possible to prevent spores from spreading.
Emergency Water Extraction
We begin by extracting any standing water found in your home or business using high-grade equipment strategically placed to remove water from the area.
The first step requires immediate water removal through our advanced pumping machines. Once the water has been extracted, all affected belongings and structures will be removed and stored or discarded.
Once completed, our technicians will remove the equipment, and the water will be discarded elsewhere by PuroClean of Hoboken’s technicians.
Drying & Dehumidification
Once all areas requiring this process have been identified, the areas are isolated and prepped for drying and dehumidification.
Removal of belongings and upholstery will be necessary to ensure that the process can be thoroughly completed.
When ready, the PuroClean of Hoboken technician will place air-moving machines around the isolated area. Keep in mind that these machines are loud. The fans will be focusing on areas of the house or business that contain moisture to pull out any trapped water.
Next, the water will be pulled into the air and the fans as they go through the dehumidification process. All of the water pulled out will be disposed of by the PuroClean technician in another location.
To ensure that everything is drying, a PuroClean of Hoboken technician will monitor moisture levels. Once moisture levels are normal, any removed items will be placed back to their original locations.
Carpet restoration is the process that PuroClean of Hoboken uses to take your damaged carpet and restore it to its previous state.
The first step is to find the source of the water damage, as this determines whether or not your carpet is salvageable.
If the findings of step one show that the carpet is salvageable, any remaining water is removed through water extraction.
Then, they will use high-grade air-moving fans to remove the moisture from the carpet to prevent mold growth.
PuroClean technicians will keep you and your insurance agent updated during the drying process.
Once the carpet is dry, they will remove all equipment from the area, and they will put all belongings back into place.
Carpet Cleaning, Deodorization & Spot Removal
Any carpet that has been affected by water damage is subject to mildew being formed, which can cause an odor to spread not only in the affected room but throughout the entire home or office. Our technicians can remove any such odors from your carpet with proper cleaning, deodorization, and/or spot removal.
Our technician will begin with a complete inspection and vacuuming of your carpet.
Then, they will remove your furniture to repair your carpet.
Should the need arise, a spot and pet odor treatment will be done.
Available fiber or textile protection is also available, which will protect and prolong the value of your carpet.
Mold & Odor Removal
Our PuroClean of Hoboken team will address your mold damage and ensure your home or business is fully restored by following a detailed process. Please note that getting a professional on-site quickly to address water damage is essential to preventing mold growth. Our process is as follows:
We will start by performing a mold assessment, delicately inspecting your property for signs of mold. Then we’ll conduct a full mold removal, where we thoroughly remove the mold from the site.
After all the mold is removed, we will deodorize the site. Deodorization includes cleaning and sanitizing the structure, fixtures, and content.
We will then use HEPA Air Filtration and HEPA Vacuuming equipment to evaporate water and eliminate moisture.

What to do
Turn Water Off: Shut down your home’s water supply and call a plumber for repairs.
Use Caution: Watch your step, as floors may be slippery. Also, watch for trip and fall hazards, as well as for exposed electrical wires.

Does homeowners insurance cover flooding or water damage restoration? Do you work with insurance companies to minimize the cost and hassle?
Homeowners insurance provides coverage for damage that is sudden and accidental (such as water heater ruptures or pipe bursts). However, flood damage, no matter the source of the water, is NOT covered by standard homeowners’ policies. Also, the water damage that results from a lack of maintenance is not covered on a standard homeowner’s insurance policy.
