and is considered an emergency. For that reason we have
fully trained emergency technicians standing by in Austin

any damage, reducing your suffering and saving money.
With each passing hour, water damage claims increase
in cost due the damaging nature of water.
If you're home or business has just flooded then you
need to call us immediately, now is not the time to
shop around for the best price - that's your adjuster's
job once the damage is under control, you must take
immediate action. Leaving your damaged contents and
structure to remain wet is not only an invitation for
future problems and added expenses from mold damage,
but could also jeopardize your claim since you have
a responsibility to mitigate the damage.
According to the Webster's Dictionary, to mitigate is
to "make less severe" or "alleviate".
Our PuroClean responders are certified and trained with
techniques to mitigate all property losses with lower
costs to homeowners and insurance providers in mind.

In the event water damage:
- In most situations the source of the water is evident
- take the necessary steps to stop water from entering
the home. Turn off your water mains or call a plumber
- Call PuroClean Property Damage Professionals so
they can dispatch a team right away.
- 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
- 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,
- Take furs and leather goods and place in an unaffected
room where they can air out. Inform a technician so
they can place a dehumidifier in that room.
- Remove wet books and spread out to dry, be careful
not to tear them. Valuable books can be freeze-dried
- speak to your water damage technician.
- If safe to do so and warm and dry outside opening
the doors and windows will assist in the drying process.
- We take photos and document your loss, but taking
photos yourself is never a bad idea. Don't throw anything
out before taking photos.

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
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
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.
