  • If there was a failed part that caused the flood, save it, your insurance company will want to see it
  • If safe to do so, use a wet/dry shop vac or mop and towels to remove as much of the water as possible.
  • If the water came from the top floor then wipe down any standing water on wood furniture.
  • Curtains can stain quickly when touching a wet carpet, so lift them up by looping them through a coat hanger hanging from the curtain rod.
  • Place any wet cushions in a dry area on their side to aid in drying.
  • To prevent carpet staining and damage to furniture place pieces of plastic, or aluminum foil under furniture legs.
  • Pick up wet fabrics like clothes, rugs or other floor coverings and place them outside if not raining.
  • Remove dangerous items and valuables such as firearms, expensive jewelry and art pieces and place in a safe, dry location.

Water removal

water damage Austin 512-568-3570

Don't let a horrible situation of water damage turn into something much worse. Don't allow it to become a complete disaster in your home or place of work! Standing water, besides structural damage, can also become a sever health risk as bacteria multiples with each passing hour. The longer a home stays wet then more demolition is required and the less that can be dried and saved. Water travels a lot further than most homeowners first think - that wet carpet also has saturated the carpet pad and in all likelihood the sub floor too. Don't let mold develop, call PuroClean right away.

It's very important to start the process of returning your home to a pre-loss condition as soon as possible for health and financial cost reasons. Your personal possessions are far less likely to develop mold if a professional is called out immediately to begin the mitigation steps.

Water damage mitigation and restoration is a four step process:

1. Initial Inspection and assessment: With highly sensitive moisture meters, our certified restoration experts go through a process of discovery and assessment locating the source of the water and migration patterns of the water throughout the property creating a mental moisture map.

2. Water extraction: Removing water with a weighted extractor removes water over 1000 times faster than dehumidification alone and can remove 25 gallons of water a minute from the carpet, pad and sub floor. This reduces the amount of time required for drying equipment and saves on costs.

3. Add Drying Equipment: Air movers (commonly referred to as fans) are strategically placed around the room to evaporate moisture at a high rate. We then add dehumidifiers in order to extract humidity from the air. The moist air is dried out and heated up by the dehumidifiers and added back into the room. This warmer dry air is now able to assist in the evaporation process since it can now hold more moisture.

4. Moisture readings: We will develop a monitoring schedule with you (preferable daily) so we can take moisture and humidity readings thus ensuring we have the right amount of equipment in the right areas to expedite the drying process. Equipment will be repositioned in areas that need more attention.
