Trust PuroClean of McLean, VA for your Water Damage Restoration

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.

The Water Removal Process: The PuroClean of McLean, VA has IICRC certified technicians that will ensure the visible and invisible water damage is restored, while respectfully caring for your property and belongings.

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, possibly impact indoor air quality, and may ultimately result in compromised occupant health issues. 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 established, 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 goal is to return your property to a clean and safe 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 can 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 McLean, VA water damage repair process PuroClean works with you and your insurance provider to keep you both in the loop on what is happening, what to expect and what to do.

Water Damage Assessments:

  • 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 McLean, VA

To extract the standing water from your affected area, we start by using strategically located commercial grade water removing equipment that expeditiously eliminates the water.

  • Our specialized pumping equipment will be immediately used to remove all standing water immediately upon arrival. Your affected property will be removed to be stored or discarded.
  • When the water is fully removed from the premises, the equipment is removed, and the displaced water will be disposed of at an environmentally safe location.

Dehumidification & Drying

When all areas requiring this process have been identified, these premises are isolated and prepped for drying and dehumidification.

  1. To ensure this step can be completely performed, removal of belongings and upholstery will be necessary.
  2. Air moving machines will be located strategically in the most affected areas. The areas that contain the majority of the water will be the focus to pull out trapped water. Please note, these machines are very loud.
  3. These powerful air movers are specially designed to increase evaporation in the given space and create airflow so dehumidifiers can be most effective. The water that was removed is disposed of by our technicians at a different location.
  4. Once the moisture levels return to normal, your PuroClean technicians will bring back moved items and property to their original location. The humidity levels are monitored closely by PuroClean technicians to ensure that things can get back to normal as quickly as possible.

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 process of cleaning, deodorizing and spot removal 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.

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 sudden and accidental damage (such as water heater ruptures or pipe bursts). However, flood damage, no matter the water source, is NOT covered by standard homeowners policies.

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.
