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 Process of Water Removal: The PuroClean of Northridge, CA certified water damage specialists are there to ensure that the obvious and hidden water damaged areas of your home and property are restored – while giving special care to all of your belongings and property.

Mold and Odor Removal: Water losses not handled in a timely manner and dried down quickly can lead to secondary 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 determined, 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.

A lot of 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 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 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.

PuroClean Emergency Flood and Related Water Damage Repair Services in Northridge, CA

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.

Emergency Extraction of Water in Northridge, CA

We begin by extracting any standing water present on your premises using specially designed equipment strategically placed to remove all water from the premises.

  • When the water has been removed, any affected structures and belongings are removed to be stored or thrown away. This first step takes place immediately and is achieved using our advanced pumping machines. Our technicians start water removal immediately using our powerful commercial water pumping equipment. Upon the finishing of the water removal process, PuroClean will remove all damaged structures and/or belongings regardless if you’re keeping or trashing them.
  • Once completed, the equipment will be removed and the water will be disposed of off-site by PuroClean’s technicians.

Drying & Dehumidification

Once all areas requiring this process have been identified, these premises 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 professional will assess the marked off premises and choose locations for the powerful air movers. Areas of the home or business that contain the most moisture and trapped water are our top concern, to pull out trapped water. Remember, these air movers are quite loud.
  3. Next, the water will be pulled into the air by the air movers, which are specially designed to increase evaporation in the given space and create airflow so dehumidifiers can be most effective. All of the water pulled out is to be disposed of by the PuroClean technician in another location.
  4. To ensure that everything is drying, your PuroClean technician will closely monitor moisture levels. Once moisture levels are back to normal, all removed property will be placed back to their original locations.

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.
