Trust PuroClean of Tuscaloosa, AL for your Water Damage Remediation

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 Tuscaloosa, AL has certified water removal technicians that will ensure the water damage that is both seen and hidden is restored, while being respectful of your property and belongings.

Mold and Odor Removal: Water losses not handled in a timely manner and dried down quickly can lead to additional damage such as microbial growth, as well as cause structural components to lose their integrity, potentially 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 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.

Many people use bleach to clean mold; however, this is an ineffective approach as bleach does not kill the spores; it only bleaches them. PuroClean’s mission is to return your property to a clean and safe 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. 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: We strive to practice transparency so that all parties impacted are fully informed and able to make important decisions.

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.
