Trust PuroClean of Lakeland, FL for your Water Damage Restoration

PuroClean QuickDry System™

Our QuickDry systems are 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 Damage Restoration and Removal Process: PuroClean of Lakeland, FL‘s IICRC certified technicians respectfully care for your property and belongings while ensuring that water damage, both visible and invisible, is restored.

Mold and Odor Removal: Water losses not handled and dried down quickly can lead to secondary 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 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 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 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 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 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: During the Lakeland, FL water damage restoration process, we will work with you and your insurance provider to keep you both aware of what’s happening, what to expect, and what to do.

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.

Lakeland, FL Emergency Water Extraction

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

  • When the water has been removed, any affected structures and property are relocated to be stored or discarded. This first step takes place immediately and is carried out using our advanced pumping machines. PuroClean will begin water damage restoration and removal immediately using our powerful commercial water pump machines. Upon completion of the water removal procedure, PuroClean will remove all damaged structures and/or belongings regardless if you’re keeping or trashing them.
  • After the water is completely removed from your property, the equipment is removed, and the displaced water will be disposed of at an environmentally safe location.

Drying and Dehumidification

The affected areas that need drying and dehumidification are marked, isolated, and prepped to undergo this process.

  1. Your belongings and upholstery need to be moved to make sure the process can be completely performed.
  2. Our professionals 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. Following this, 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 employee in another location.
  4. Only after monitoring the humidity 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 cleaning, deodorizing, and spot removal process 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.

Lakeland, FL Water Damage Restoration Do’s and Don’ts

Water damage restoration in Lakeland, FL is critical, but the safety of everyone involved is our number one priority. Whether mitigating or restoring water damage, the following tips will help reduce the risk of you suffering a setback due to heavy rain, flood, problem plumbing, leaky AC, or roof.

To Do:

  • Shut off main water supply: Turn off your home’s water supply. You may also need to call a plumber for repairs.
  • Use Caution: Floors may be slippery so be sure to watch your step. Also, watch for any trip and fall hazards as well as for any exposed electrical wires.
  • Water removal: Mop as much water as possible. In cooler weather, open windows to speed up drying and in hot weather, only if it’s safe to do so, turn your A/C on.
  • Upholstery should be propped up: Any loose cushions and upholstered furniture should be propped up in a dry place.
  • Manage Area Rugs and Obstacles: Take out any area rugs and pick up any items that may be sitting on the floor.
  • Dry Storage Containers: Please open and dry all of your wet storage containers, bins, or suitcases. If possible, have them dry in the sun.
  • Protect Your Valuables: Paintings, artwork, and any other valuables should be relocated to a safe, dry place.
  • Dry Clothing: Quickly dry all articles of clothing. Hang fur and leather goods to dry at room temperature.
  • Furniture Protection: Put aluminum foil or some sort of plastic under all furniture legs that are touching wet carpets. Open cabinet doors and drawers to dry out interiors (but do not force them open).
  • Call PuroClean Immediately: Call PuroClean of Lakeland, FL. Our certified technicians are highly skilled in Lakeland, FL water damage restoration.

What Not To Do:

  • Don’t Use a Vacuum Cleaner: Only use a wet vacuum, which is designed to handle water. DO NOT USE your standard everyday vacuum.

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