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 to develop. PuroClean’s IICRC certified technicians follow industry best practices 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 areas 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.

A lot of 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 mission is to return your property to a safe and clean 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.

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.

Drying and Dehumidification

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

  2. Air moving machines will be placed strategically in the most appropriate locations. 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. During the dehumidification process, the water is pulled into the air by air movers, which are specially designed to increase evaporation in the given space and create airflow so dehumidifiers can be most effective. PuroClean technicians dispose of all the excess water in a different location.
  4. PuroClean techs will put back any moved items to their original location once moisture levels are normal. Our technicians monitor humidity levels closely during the drying process to ensure proper drying is taking place.

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!

  • 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.
