The Water Removal Process:

  • Our technicians will first remove damaged structures which will be restored or discarded. Materials include baseboards, insulation, furniture, upholstery, carpeting, carpet padding, fragile wood, drywall, and whatever else necessary.
  • Next, specialized equipment like dehumidifiers and air movers are typically used during the procedure of drying. When the damaged belongings and structure are removed, we begin drying and disinfecting the water damaged areas.
  • The areas with mold damage are addressed next and are disinfected and restored quickly to stop the mold from spreading.

Milwaukie Emergency Water Extraction

Our technicians will begin by removing all standing water from your affected areas. We strategically use commercial grade water removal equipment to remove unwanted water as quickly as possible.

  • The first step calls for immediate water removal using our advanced water pumps. Once the water has been extracted, all damaged items and materials will be removed and stored or discarded.
  • Upon completion, the equipment will be removed and the water will be discarded elsewhere by PuroClean’s employees.

Drying and Dehumidification

Areas to be dried and dehumidified are marked, isolated and prepped to be our focus for drying and dehumidification.

  1. This procedure calls for all belongings to be removed to thoroughly complete the water removal.
  2. A PuroClean technician will assess the isolated area and choose locations for air moving machines. Areas of the home or business that have the most moisture and trapped water are our top concern, to pull out trapped water. Remember, these industrial fans are quite loud.
  3. The water is sucked into the air by these powerful fans – PuroClean technicians will make sure the water is disposed of in another location.
  4. To ensure that everything is drying, a PuroClean technician will closely monitor moisture levels. Once moisture levels are normal, all removed items will be placed back to their original locations.

  3. Then, high-grade air-moving fans will be used to remove the moisture from the carpet to prevent mold growth.
  4. Our technicians will keep you and your insurance provider in the loop during this drying process.
  5. Once the carpet is dry, all our equipment will be removed from the area, and all belongings will be put back into place.

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, flood damage, no matter the source of the water, is NOT covered by standard homeowners’ policies. Also, the water damage that results from a lack of maintenance is not covered on a standard homeowner’s insurance policy.

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.
