Trust PuroClean of Clackamas and Surrounding Communities 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.

During Our Water Removal Process: Our IICRC certified PuroClean of Clackamas and Surrounding Communities water damage restoration technicians ensure that the water damage to your property – both visible and invisible is restored, all while caring for your property and belongings.

Mold and Odor Removal: Water losses not handled 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. 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 strategy as bleach doesn’t kill the spores; it only bleaches them. PuroClean’s goal 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 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.

Ongoing Communication: PuroClean will work closely with you and your insurance provider throughout the Clackamas and Surrounding Communities water damage repair process, to ensure you both know what is transpiring, what to expect and what you can 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.

Clackamas and Surrounding Communities Emergency Water Extraction

PuroClean will start by removing all standing water from your premises. We strategically use commercial grade water removal equipment to remove the water as quickly as possible.

  • The first step calls for immediate water removal using our advanced pumping machines. Once the water has been extracted, all affected belongings and structures will be removed and stored or discarded.
  • The equipment will be removed upon completion and the PuroClean technicians will discard the water at another location.

Drying & Dehumidification

Once all areas requiring this process have been identified, they are isolated and prepped for drying and dehumidification.

  1. Your belongings and upholstery need to be moved to make sure the process can be completely performed.
  2. A PuroClean technician will assess the isolated area and choose locations for air moving machines. Areas of the home or business that are affected with the most moisture and trapped water are our top concern, to pull out trapped water. Remember, these machines are quite 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 technicians at a different location.
  4. Only after monitoring humidity levels and confirming that the levels have returned to normal, your items and property 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 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.

To Do:

  • Shut Off Water: Shut off the home’s water supply and 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 exposed electrical wires.
  • Remove Water: Mop up as much water as possible. In cool weather, open windows to speed drying; in hot weather, if safe, switch on your Air Conditioning.
  • Prop Up Upholstery: Remove all loose cushions and prop up upholstered furniture.
  • Deal with Area Rugs and Obstacles: Remove rugs and pick up any items that are sitting on the floor.
  • Dry Storage Containers: Storage containers like wet suitcases and storage bins should be opened and dried in the sunlight if at all possible.
  • Protect Your Valuables: Paintings, artwork, and any other valuables should be moved to a safe, dry place.
  • Dry Clothing: Immediately dry all garments. Hang leather and fur goods to dry at room temperature.

  • Contact PuroClean ASAP: Call PuroClean of Clackamas and Surrounding Communities. Experienced technicians highly trained in Clackamas and Surrounding Communities water damage are ready and waiting to come to you.

What You Should Not Do:

  • Don’t Use a Vacuum Cleaner: You can only use a wet-vac, which is produced to handle water. DON’T USE your standard everyday vacuum cleaner.
  • Don’t mess with electrical outlets: DO NOT unplug or plug any electrical cords or outlets and don’t touch anything that is already plugged in.

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. Also, a standard homeowners insurance policy will not cover 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.
