Trust PuroClean of Schenectady, NY for your Water Damage Restoration

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 Schenectady, NY has IICRC certified technicians that will ensure the water damage that is both visible and invisible 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 additional 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. 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 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 approach as bleach doesn’t kill the spores; it only bleaches them. PuroClean’s mission is to return your property to a clean and safe condition.

Odors are an indicator 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.

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.

Schenectady, NY Emergency Water Extraction

PuroClean will start by removing all unwanted water from your premises. We strategically use commercial grade water removal machines to remove the water as quickly as possible.

  • Our advanced pumping machines will be immediately used to remove all standing water right away upon arrival. Your damaged belongings will be removed to be stored or discarded.
  • The equipment will be removed upon completion and the PuroClean technicians will discard the water at another location.

Dehumidification and Drying

Once all areas requiring this process have been identified, they are isolated and prepped for drying and dehumidification.

  1. To ensure this procedure can be completely performed, removal of belongings and upholstery will be necessary.
  2. Air moving machines will be sat out around the premises strategically in the most appropriate locations. The areas that contain the majority of the water will be the focus to pull out trapped water. Please note, these machines are very loud.
  3. During our 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 relocated items to their original location once moisture levels return to normal. The technicians monitor humidity levels closely during this process of drying to ensure proper drying is taking place.

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.
