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.

During our Process of Water Removal: The Lexington, KY certified water damage professionals are there to make sure that the obvious and hidden water damaged areas of your property are restored – while giving special care to all of your belongings and property.

Mold and Odor Removal: Water losses not handled in a timely manner 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 to develop. 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 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 does not kill the spores; it only bleaches them. PuroClean’s mission is to return your property to a clean and safe condition.

Odors are a sign 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 home or business, which includes employing specialized equipment, cleaning practices, followed by recommending a clearance test to ensure your property has reached the desired goal.

The 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 Lexington, KY

  • When the water is completely removed from your property, the equipment is removed, and the displaced water will be discarded at an environmentally safe location.

Dehumidification & Drying

The affected areas that need dried and dehumidified are marked, isolated and prepped to be our focus for drying and dehumidification.

  1. Relocation of belongings and upholstery will be necessary to ensure that the process can be thoroughly completed.
  2. A PuroClean technician will assess the isolated area and choose locations for air moving machines. 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 machines are quite 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 is to be disposed of by the PuroClean employee in another location.
  4. Once moisture levels return to normal, your PuroClean technicians will bring back relocated property and items to where they belong in your house. These humidity levels are closely monitored by our technicians to make sure that things can get back to normal as quickly as possible.

  • Prop Up Upholstery: Take out all loose cushions and prop up upholstered furniture.
  • Remove obstacles – Remove all rugs: Pick up wet rugs and remove any items that are sitting on the floor and/or in the main walkway area.

  • Protect Valuables: Relocate paintings and other artwork to a safe, dry place.
  • Dry Wet Clothing: Quickly dry any wet garments. Hang leather goods and furs to dry at room temperature.
