Trust PuroClean of Powhatan, VA 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 Powhatan, VA has certified water removal technicians that will ensure the visible and invisible water damage is restored, while respectfully caring for your property and belongings.

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 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.

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 goal 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. 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.

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.

Powhatan, VA Emergency Water Extraction

We start out by strategically using specially designed water removal equipment in order to quickly get rid of standing water.

  • The first step consists of immediate water removal using our advanced pumping machines. Once the water has been extracted, all damaged items and materials will be removed and stored or discarded.
  • Once completed, the equipment will be removed and the water will be discarded elsewhere by PuroClean’s professionals.

Dehumidification and Drying

Then our fucus is to identify, isolate and prep all areas that need drying and dehumidification.

  1. The moving of belongings and upholstery will be necessary to ensure that the process can be thoroughly completed.
  2. Our professionals will place powerful air movers, focusing on the most affected areas. The most highly affected areas will be the focus, and trapped water will be removed by the machines. These machines are very loud.
  3. The water is 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. PuroClean technicians dispose of the water in another location.
  4. Only after monitoring humidity levels and confirming the levels have returned to normal, your items will be returned to the 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.

PuroClean’s Dos and Don’ts of Water Damage in Powhatan, VA

Although the repair of water damage in Powhatan, VA is a high priority, safety of our customers and technicians is our most important priority. The following tips will help reduce risk of suffering setbacks due to a heavy rain, flood, roof leaks or faulty plumbing or AC units; regardless of whether you’re mitigating or restoring water damage.

To Do:

  • Shut off the main water supply: Turn off your home’s water supply. You may also need to call a plumber for repairs.
  • Use Caution: Watch your step, as floors may be slippery. Also, watch for trip and fall hazards as well as for any exposed electrical wires.
  • Water removal: Mop as much water as possible. In cooler weather, open windows to speed up drying and in hot weather, only if it’s safe to do so, switch on your A/C.
  • Upholstery should be propped up: All loose cushions and upholstered furniture should be propped up in a dry place.
  • Remove obstacles – Remove all rugs: Pick up wet rugs and take out any items that may be sitting on the floor and could pose a treat when walking.
  • Dry Storage Containers: Open wet suitcases and storage boxes; and, if possible, dry them in the sun.
  • Protect Your Valuables: Paintings, artwork, and any other valuables should be moved to a safe, dry place.
  • Dry Wet Clothing: Quickly dry any wet clothes. Hang leather goods and furs to dry at room temperature.
  • Furniture Protection: Put tinfoil or some sort of plastic under all furniture legs touching wet carpets. Open any drawers and cabinet doors to dry out interiors (but don’t force them open).
  • Contact PuroClean ASAP: Call PuroClean of Powhatan, VA. Experienced technicians highly trained in Powhatan, VA water damage are waiting to come to you.

Do Not Do:

  • Do not Use a Vacuum Cleaner: Only use a wet vac, which is designed to handle water. DON’T USE your normal everyday vacuum cleaner.
  • Do not touch electrical outlets: Leave cords alone. If it’s plugged in, leave it and if it is not plugged in, leave it alone. Do not touch electrical cords at all.
  • DO NOT USE APPLIANCES: DO NOT USE TVs, radios, computers, ceiling fans, or any other electrical appliances while you are standing on wet carpets or floors, particularly concrete or tile floors.

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.
