Trust PuroClean Emergency Restoration Specialists for Your Water Damage Restoration

PuroClean QuickDry System™

Our QuickDry System™ is designed to dry affected structural materials and contents promptly and effectively. The system includes:

  • A thorough assessment and inspection of the structure to determine what’s wet and how wet structural materials and contents are using 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:

When water damage strikes your property, it’s important to act fast to prevent further damage. Our team of IICRC-certified water damage restoration technicians understands the importance of restoring every area, whether obvious or hidden, while taking special care of your belongings and property.

But the damage caused by water extends beyond what meets the eye. If not handled quickly, it can lead to further damage like mold growth, compromised indoor air quality, and health risks. That’s why our technicians follow industry-accepted standards to ensure proper remediation of mold and other water damage by implementing control and containment measures using high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) air filtration devices. Our team will work tirelessly to return your property to its pre-loss condition, giving you peace of mind knowing it is in good hands.

  • 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.

While some individuals may opt for bleach to address mold issues, it is ineffective since bleach merely whitens the spores without eliminating them. PuroClean is dedicated to restoring your property cleanly and safely, employing methods that guarantee the complete elimination of mold infestation.

Unpleasant odors serve as a signal that there may still be moisture present. A musty, strong smell can suggest microbial problems leading to the production of microbial volatile organic compounds (MVOCs) and potential health concerns. PuroClean Emergency Restoration Specialists adheres to industry standards when determining the appropriate repair scope for your residence or business. This involves using specialized equipment, cleaning techniques, and a clearance test to confirm that your property has achieved the desired condition.

Emergency Water Extraction

Our process begins with extracting any standing water in your home or business, employing top-tier equipment strategically positioned to eliminate all water from the area.

The initial phase involves swift water removal using our advanced pumping machines. Subsequently, all impacted belongings and structures are removed and stored or responsibly discarded. Following the completion of this stage, our technicians will remove the equipment, and the collected water will be appropriately discarded elsewhere.

Drying and Dehumidification

Upon identifying all areas requiring drying and dehumidification, they are contained and prepared for the process.

Removing belongings and upholstery is necessary to ensure a thorough procedure. The acting technician will position air-moving machines around the isolated area when ready. The fans will be directed towards the moisture-laden areas of the house or business to extract any trapped water.

Subsequently, during the dehumidification phase, water will be drawn into the air and through the fans. Our technicians will responsibly dispose of all extracted water in a designated location.

Our technicians will diligently monitor moisture levels throughout the process to ensure effective drying. Once moisture levels return to normal, any items that were removed will be carefully placed back in their original locations.

Carpet Restoration

Carpet restoration is the process utilized to return your damaged carpet to its pre-loss condition.

The first step involves identifying the water damage source to determine the salvageability of the carpet. If this initial assessment deems the carpet salvageable, any remaining water is extracted through a water removal process.

Subsequently, high-quality air-moving fans are employed to eliminate moisture from the carpet, mitigating the risk of mold growth. Throughout this drying process, PuroClean Emergency Restoration Specialists‘s technicians will provide regular updates to both you and your insurance agent.

Upon achieving a thoroughly dry state for the carpet, all equipment will be removed from the area, and your belongings will be returned to their original locations.

Carpet Cleaning, Deodorization and Spot Removal

Water-damaged carpets are prone to mildew, leading to unpleasant odors that can permeate the affected room and the entire home or office. Effective removal of odors from your carpet involves thorough cleaning, deodorization, and targeted spot removal.

Our technicians will start the process with a comprehensive inspection and vacuuming of your carpet. Following this, your furniture will be temporarily relocated to facilitate carpet repairs. If necessary, spot and pet odor treatments will be applied.

Additionally, we offer fiber or textile protection, providing an added layer of defense to safeguard and extend the lifespan of your carpet.

Water Damage Do’s and Don’ts

While addressing water damage repair in Lakeland, FL remains a top priority, ensuring the safety of our customers and technicians takes precedence as our primary goal. The following tips aim to minimize the risk of setbacks caused by rain events, floods, roof leaks, or malfunctioning plumbing or AC units.

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 become slippery and wet. Keep a lookout for obstacles and any exposed wiring.
  • 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: Artwork, collectibles, and 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 the inside.
  • Contact PuroClean Emergency Restoration Specialists ASAP: Call PuroClean Emergency Restoration Specialists to reach experienced technicians who are highly trained in water damage and are ready and waiting to come to you.

What Not To Do:

  • Do Not Vacuum: You should not use a traditional household vacuum cleaner. Only use a wet vacuum, 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 plugged in.
  • 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.

Most Common Reasons For Water Damage In Your Property


Storm Damage and Flash Floods

Water damage is a real threat to your property, especially during natural catastrophes such as tornadoes, hurricanes, and other phenomena. These unpredictable events can cause harm to your roof, allowing rainwater to seep through and flood your home or company. And if you’re located in a flood-prone zone, the risks only increase when severe weather hits.

Overflowing Bathtubs, Sinks, and Washing Machines

Water, while essential for life, can be a homeowner’s worst nightmare when it decides to wreak havoc on one’s humble abode. One of the most common culprits of water damage is forgetfulness or machine malfunction, resulting in overflowing bathtubs or washing machines. This neglected oversight can lead to floods and the consequences can be catastrophic. The possible damage to drywall, ceilings, and other home components can be costly and time-consuming to repair.

Pipes and Supply Line Leaks

Pipes on your property can be the source of water damage. A leaky kitchen sink pipe might seem like a minor annoyance, but if left unchecked, it can cause significant damage to cabinets and walls. It’s crucial to detect leaks in pipes that are within walls because they can cause even more harm. The entire wall may become wet, leading to mold growth and extensive water damage. To make matters worse, if there is a leak in your plumbing supply line or drainage pipe beneath the concrete slab, it can be difficult to detect, making the repair process even more complicated.

Frozen Pipes

In colder regions, frozen pipes pose a common issue, especially during the winter months. This problem can result in substantial damage to water lines, leading to leaks and house flooding. When temperatures plummet, inadequately insulated pipes may allow water inside to freeze, causing blockages or even complete pipe breakage.

Below are the questions typically asked by our PuroClean customers:

Does homeowners insurance cover flooding or water damage? Do you work with insurance companies to minimize the cost and hassle?

Homeowners insurance covers sudden and accidental damage (such as water heater ruptures or pipe bursts). However, no matter the water source, flood restoration 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.

Dangers of Not Resolving Water Damage

Blocked Drains and Sump Pumps

Hair, grease accumulation, toiletries, dirt, and other foreign objects can obstruct the drainpipe and prevent regular drainage. When clogged drains are not addressed promptly, they may easily back up and cause flooding and damage to your home’s interior. An inefficient, obstructed, damaged, or failing sump pump will leave your basement dealing with large quantities of water that cannot be drained. Being unable to evacuate the water can lead to costly flood damage. Here are some tips to help maintain your sump pump.

Extinguishing a Fire

Many people wouldn’t think of it, but a common side-effect of fire is dealing with heavy water damage. First Responders and emergency sprinkler systems douse the entirety of the property under considerable amounts of water in an effort to stop the fire. We also have had many events where people looking for a place to hang their clothes, use the pipes for the sprinkler system, which triggers the sprinklers, flooding many floors at times. Read our list of facts about home sprinkler systems.

Roof Leaks

The physical integrity of your roof is vital to maintaining conditions on the inside of your home. Over time, natural wear and tear will cause roofs to weaken and leaks to form. When the roof is breached, precipitation will enter your home and begin to cause damage in its wake. If the water damage is not addressed within 24-48 hours after the intrusion, the standing water and buildup of humidity may lead to mold growth. Find out what actions you should take if you discover a leak in your roof.

Ice Dams

Ice dams form on roofs during a cycle of snow precipitating, melting, then refreezing. This is caused by the heat of the attic rising upwards and causing the frozen snow to melt into liquid water. The liquid water runs off towards the edges of the roof but refreezes in the sub-freezing temperatures, resulting in a buildup of ice along the edges of the roof. This damming effect will then cause snow and ice to build up and put your roof in major jeopardy of being overloaded and damaged. Read our guide towards the most effective means of preventing ice dams on your roof.
