PuroClean Emergency Flood and Related Water Damage Repair Services in South Portland

Our Water Removal Process:

  • The first thing our technicians will do is remove damaged materials that will either be restored or discarded. These materials include baseboards, insulation, furniture, upholstery, carpeting, carpet padding, fragile wood, drywall, and more.
  • Next, specialized equipment like dehumidifiers and industrial fans are normally used during the drying process. When the damaged belongings and structure are removed, we begin drying and disinfecting the water damaged areas.
  • Our technicians will then handle mold damage in the restoration process. Mold-infected surfaces will be disinfected and restored as quickly as possible so spreading is stopped.

Emergency Extraction of Water in South Portland

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

  • The first step calls for immediate water removal using our advanced pumping machines. Once the water is removed, all damaged items and materials will be removed and stored or discarded.
  • The equipment is taken away upon completion and the PuroClean technicians will discard the water at another location.

Dehumidification & Drying

The next step is to identify, isolate and prep all areas that need drying and dehumidification.

  1. Removal of belongings and upholstery will be necessary to ensure that the process can be finished completely.
  2. When ready, the PuroClean professional will place industrial fans around the affected premises. Keep in mind that these machines are quite noisy. The fans will be focusing on areas of the house or business that contain moisture to displace any trapped water.
  3. The water is extracted into the air by these powerful fans – Our technicians dispose of the water in a separate location.
  4. Only after monitoring humidity levels, and confirming that the levels have returned to normal, your items and property will be returned to their original location.

Restoring Carpets

Water damaged carpet is fixed by Puroclean and brought back to the original state during the carpet restoration process.

  1. Locating the source of the water damage is the first step, and determining if your carpet is salvageable or not.
  2. Remaining water is removed from the carpet through water extraction. This will occur if the carpet is salvageable.
  3. To prevent mold growth, the next step is to use commercial air-moving fans to eliminate leftover moisture.
  4. Our techs will keep you and your insurance provider updated during this drying process.
  5. All belongings will be returned to their original location and Puroclean of South Portland will remove all the equipment once the carpet is completely dry.

  • Eliminate obstacles – Remove rugs: Pick up wet rugs and remove any items that are sitting on the floor and could pose a treat when walking.

  • Dry Clothing: Immediately dry all articles of clothing. Hang fur and leather goods to dry at room temperature.

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.

So glad you were the vendor. Other vendor was a nightmare on previous claim in my last home.
