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 Water Removal Process: Our IICRC certified PuroClean of Vancouver, WA water damage restoration technicians ensure that the water damage to your property – the damage that can be seen and is hidden, is restored, they do this while caring for your property and your 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. 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 approach as bleach does not 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.

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.

Drying and Dehumidification

Areas to be dried and dehumidified are marked, isolated and prepped to undergo this process.

  1. To ensure this step can be completely performed, removal of belongings and upholstery will be necessary.
  2. A PuroClean technician will assess the isolated area and choose locations for air moving machines. 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. These air movers are specially designed to increase evaporation in the given space and create airflow so dehumidifiers can be most effective. The water that was removed is disposed of by our technicians at a different location.
  4. PuroClean technicians will put back any relocated property to their original location once moisture levels are normal. Our technicians monitor humidity levels closely during the drying process to make sure that proper drying is taking place.

What To Do:

  • Shut Off Your Water: Shut down your home’s water source and call a plumber for repairs.
  • Be very careful: Watch where you step as flooring may be wet and slick. Keep a lookout for obstacles and any exposed wiring. USE CAUTION.
  • Water removal: Mop as much water as possible. In cool weather, open windows to help speed up the drying process and in hot weather, only if it’s safe to do so, turn your A/C on.
  • Prop Up Upholstery: Take out all loose cushions and prop up upholstered furniture.
  • Manage Area Rugs and Obstacles: Take out rugs and pick up all items that may be sitting on the floor.
  • Dry Storage Containers: Any storage containers like wet suitcases and storage boxes should be opened and dried in the sunlight if at all possible.
  • Protect Your Valuables: Paintings, artwork, and any other valuables should be relocated to a safe, dry place.
  • Dry Wet Clothing: Quickly dry all wet clothes. Hang leather goods and furs to dry at room temperature.

  • Contact PuroClean ASAP: Call PuroClean of Vancouver, WA. Trained technicians highly trained in Vancouver, WA water damage are ready to come to you.

What You Should Not Do:

  • DO NOT USE APPLIANCES: DO NOT USE TVs, radios, computers, ceiling fans, or any other electrical appliances while standing on wet carpets or floors, particularly tile or concrete floors.
