PuroClean QuickDry System™

Our QuickDry System™ 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.

Our Water Damage Restoration Process

Our IICRC-certified water damage restoration technicians ensure that the water damage to your property, both visible and invisible, is restored. They do this while keeping a high level of care for your property and your belongings.

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, 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.

Many people use bleach to clean mold; however, this is an ineffective strategy as bleach does not 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 MVOCs (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.

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 Water Extraction

We start out by strategically using specially designed water removal equipment that will quickly get rid of standing water.

  • Our specialized pumping equipment will be immediately used to remove all standing water right away upon arrival. Your damaged belongings will be removed to be stored or discarded.
  • When the water is completely removed from your property, the equipment will be removed, and the displaced water will be discarded at an environmentally safe location.

Drying and Dehumidification

Once all areas requiring this process have been identified, the areas 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 finished.
  2. Our professionals will place air moving machines, focusing on the most affected areas. The most highly affected areas will be the focus, and hidden moisture will be removed by the machines. These powerful air movers are very loud.
  3. These powerful air movers are specially designed to increase evaporation in the given space and create airflow so dehumidifiers can be most effective. The water removed is disposed of by technicians at a different location.
  4. Only after monitoring the humidity and confirming that 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.

Dangers of Not Resolving Water Damage

Water Damage Do’s and Don’ts


Although water damage restoration is a high priority, the safety of our customers and technicians is our most important goal. 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 are mitigating or restoring water damage.

What You Should Do:

  • Shut Off the Main Water Supply: Turn off your home’s water supply. You may need to call a plumber for repairs.
  • Use Caution: Floors may be slippery so be sure to watch your step. Also, watch for any trip and fall hazards and for exposed electrical wires.
  • Water removal: Mop as much water as possible. In cool weather, open windows to help speed up drying. In hot weather, turn on your A/C if it’s safe to do so.
  • Prop Up Upholstery: Remove all loose cushions and prop up upholstered furniture.
  • Manage Area Rugs and Obstacles: Remove any area rugs and pick up all items that may be sitting on the floor.
  • Dry Storage Containers: Please open and dry all of your wet storage containers, bins, or suitcases. If possible, have them dry in the sun.
  • Protect Valuables: Relocate any paintings and other art to a safe, dry place.
  • Dry Wet Clothing: Quickly dry all wet garments. Hang leather goods and furs to dry at room temperature.
  • Furniture Protection: Put aluminum foil or some sort of plastic under all furniture legs touching wet carpets. Open drawers and cabinet doors to dry out interiors (but do not force them open).
  • Call PuroClean Immediately: Call PuroClean of Clairemont immediately. Our trained technicians are highly skilled in water damage restoration.

What Not To Do:

  • Don’t Vacuum: You should not use a common household vacuum cleaner. Only use a wet vac, the type that is specifically designed to handle water.
  • Don’t Touch Plugs or Outlets: Don’t plug or unplug any electrical appliances or touch anything that is plugged in already.
  • Do Not Use Electrical Appliances: Don’t touch or run any electrical appliances, such as televisions, computers, radios, fans, or anything that may be hooked to electric power–especially while standing on any wet floor, regardless of the material.
  • Do Not Let It Get Too Hot: Try to keep wet areas as cool as possible as hot, damp areas stimulate mold growth.
