PuroClean Emergency Flood and Related Water Damage Repair Services in McLean & Arlington

Our 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 all the items are removed, we begin drying out the water and sanitizing the damaged areas. Specialized tools like air movers and dehumidifiers are usually used in the process of drying the material.
  • Technicians will then sanitize and restore the areas with mold damage in a timely manner to stop the mold from spreading.

McLean & Arlington Emergency Water Extraction

To remove the standing water from your home or business, we start by using strategically located commercial-grade water removing equipment that expeditiously eliminates the water.

  • The first step consists of immediate water removal using our advanced pumping machines. Once we extract the water, all affected belongings and structures will be removed and stored or discarded.
  • Once completed, our machines will be removed and the water will be discarded elsewhere by PuroClean’s technicians.

Drying & Dehumidification

The next step is to identify, isolate and prep all areas that up for drying and dehumidification.

  1. Your belongings and upholstery need to be moved to ensure the process can be completely finished.
  2. Air moving machines will be sat out around the premises strategically in the most affected areas. The areas that contain the majority of the water will be the focus, to pull out trapped water. Remember, these machines are very loud.
  3. Next, the water will be sucked out and dried by the fans as they complete the dehumidification process. All of the water pulled out will be disposed of by the PuroClean technician in another location.
  4. Once moisture levels are normal, our technicians will replace relocated items to their original location. These humidity levels are closely monitored by our technicians to ensure that things can get back to normal as quickly as possible.

Restoring Carpets

These are the steps that PuroClean uses to take your water damaged carpet and restore it to its pre-damaged state.

  1. Finding the source of the water damage is the first step, and deciding if we believe your carpet is salvageable or not.
  2. If the findings of step one show that the carpet is restorable, we will remove any additional water through water extraction.
  3. We will then use industrial air movers (fans) to remove any remaining moisture within the carpet and prevent mold growth.
  4. During this drying process, PuroClean of McLean & Arlington’s technicians will keep all parties updated on the progress.
  5. Once the carpet is completely dry, our crew will place furniture and belongings back to their previous location.

Cleaning, Deodorizing and Spot Removal of Carpet

Mildew often forms in water damaged carpet very easily. This mildew can create odors that may spread beyond the damaged area and into your entire home or business. PuroClean’s process of cleaning, deodorizing and spot removal will safely and properly remove this odor.

  • This process begins by our certified technicians performing a complete inspection and carpet vacuuming.
  • To properly restore the damaged carpet, where needed, any furniture will be removed.
  • If necessary, a pet odor and spot removal will be performed during this time.
  • Available textile or fiber protection is also available, that will protect and prolong the value of your carpet.

PuroClean’s Dos and Don’ts of Water Damage in McLean & Arlington

Mitigating and restoring water damage in McLean & Arlington is one of our primary goals. However, our top priority is the safety of everyone involved in our process, technicians and customers alike. Follow these tips to reduce setback chances due to roof leaks, faulty plumbing and AC, rains, floods, etc.

What You Should Do:

  • Turn Water Off: Shut off the home’s water supply and call a plumber for repairs.
  • Be extra careful: Watch your step as the flooring may be slippery and wet. Keep an eye out for obstacles and any exposed wiring. USE CAUTION.
  • Water removal: Mop as much water as possible. In cool weather, open windows to speed up drying and in hot weather, only if it’s safe to do so, put your A/C on.
  • Upholstery should be propped up: All 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 all 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 Wet Clothing: Quickly dry all wet clothes. Hang leather goods and furs to dry at room temperature.
  • Protect Furniture: Place tinfoil or plastic under furniture legs on wet carpeting. Open (but don’t force) drawers and cabinet doors to dry out interiors.
  • Call PuroClean Immediately: Call PuroClean of McLean & Arlington. Our experienced technicians are highly skilled in McLean & Arlington water damage repair.

What Not To Do:

  • Don’t Use a Vacuum Cleaner: You can only use a wet-vac, which is able to deal with water. DO NOT USE your standard household vacuum.
  • Do not touch electrical outlets: Leave cords alone. If it’s plugged in, leave it and if it is not plugged in, leave it. Do not touch any cords at all.
  • Don’t use electrical devices or appliances: DON’T touch or run any electrical appliances, such as televisions, computers, radios, fans, or anything that may be hooked to electric power – and ESPECIALLY while you are standing on any wet floor, regardless of the material.
  • Do Not turn up the heat: keep interiors as cold as possible, as mold grows in heat and moisture.

Does homeowners insurance cover flooding or water damage? 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, standard homeowners’ policies do NOT cover flood damage, no matter the source of the water. Also, a standard homeowner’s insurance policy does not cover the water damage that results from a lack of maintenance.

Water Damage Restoration by PuroClean

Expert Restoration Service

PuroClean technicians are highly trained and certified, and use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to effectively remediate property damage.

The PuroClean QUICKDRY SYSTEM™

Our PuroClean QuickDry System™ uses applied psychrometric science. It is a proven process that manages dehumidification and temperature to quicken drying and help ensure the best possible outcome. *We can save almost everything: drywall, wood, carpets, and most contents!

The system uses advanced restoration equipment:

  • High-Capacity Air Movers create a vortex, similar to the motion of a tornado. This method speeds up the drying process.
  • A Low-Grain Refrigerant Dehumidifier draws in cool, wet air and blows out warm, dry air.

Additionally, we measure and log the moisture content of materials, and monitor and log progress. That helps us know the actual drying time and ensure restoration to the appropriate dry standard.

The PuroClean QuickDry™ Guarantee — Back to Normal in Three Days or Fewer.* PuroClean will monitor and mitigate water damage to your property and in most cases have it back to normal in three days or fewer*. Don’t wait, call us immediately.

We provide a complete estimate, including photos, to the agent or adjuster within 24-48 hours.

*Certain extreme conditions may warrant additional drying time and/or the removal of carpet pad and structural components.
