Whether the water damage is caused by broken pipes, toilet overflows or burst hot water heaters or loose washing machine hoses, PuroClean Home Rescue is well trained in all phases of disaster response and water damage in Fair Oaks is no exception. Water damage can arise from the impact of water dousing a fire, broken pipes, malfunctioning appliances, storms or sewage backups.

At PuroClean we utilize the ANSI/IICRC S500 and S520 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Water Damage Restoration to guide our work practices and procedures.

Flood waters and raw sewage contain bacteria, blood born pathogens and other organisms which are extremely hazardous to human health. These can be transmitted by touching contaminated items or by tracking them in uncontaminated areas on shoes. Seniors, children, and pets are especially vulnerable. Porous materials such as carpeting and drywamust removed after direct contact with contaminated water. Failure to do so will present serious long term heath risks. During a flood clean-up the air quality in your home or office may appear to be the least of your problems, however, it should be addressed. PuroClean Home Rescue uses the latest air scrubbing and disinfection technologies.

Qualified cleaning technicians use the latest technologies and equipment to properly diagnose and eradicate odors from surfaces. Through immediate and thorough cleaning combined with the use of our state-of-the-art equipment, we can remove bacteria, organic compounds and/or chemical compounds, which are often the source of the odour.

If it's wet, we can dry it!

We specialize in Water Extraction, Structural Drying, and Contents Drying. Contact PuroClean Home Rescue now, and we can help you start the process of restoring your property before the water damage worsens.

Wood floors are very sensitive, so proper drying is critical, they naturally hold wate up to 10% depending on the type of floor. Wood floors can absorb another 5% to 10% without showing any noticeable effects. Within a few days, however, the floor cannot hold the water any more and it will expand, causing cupping or crowning, which is very difficult to restore. Emergency response is critical for any damage to wood floors

Water Damage - Cleanup and Mold Prevention

Books and papers For non-valuable items, discard books and papers.

  • Photocopy valuable/important items, discard originals.
  • Freeze (in frost-free freezer or meat locker) or freeze-dry.
  • Carpet and backing - dry within 24-48 hours

  • Use weighted water extraction to remove over 90% of water from flooring.
  • Reduce the humidity levels within affected area with dehumidifiers.
  • Circulate the dehumidified air and accelerate drying process with fans strategically placed throughout area.
  • Ceiling tiles

  • Discard and replace - once wet they loose all structural integrity.
  • Cellulose insulation

  • Cheaper to discard and replace due to hygroscopic nature.
  • Concrete or cinder block surfaces

  • Remove any standing water.
  • Accelerate drying process with dehumidifiers, fans, and/or heaters.
  • Fiberglass insulation

  • Discard and replace.
  • Hard surface, porous flooring (Linoleum, ceramic tile, vinyl)

  • Remove excess water from surface.
  • Damp wipe with a mild detergent and allow to dry.
  • Note: Check to make sure vinyl its dry on the reverse side otherwise removal is required to prevent mold.
  • Non-porous, hard surfaces

  • Upholstered furniture

  • Remove excess water with water extraction vacuum.
  • Accelerate drying process with dehumidifiers, fans, and/or heaters.
  • May be difficult to completely dry within 48 hours. If the piece is valuable PuroClean will provide help to dry and clean professionally.


  • (Drywall and gypsum board) May be dried in place if there is no obvious swelling and the seams are intact. If not, remove, discard, and replace.
  • Ventilate the wall cavity, if possible.
  • PuroClean uses injected dehumidified air to dry wall cavities and can successfully dry insulation at the same time.
  • Window drapes

  • Follow laundering or cleaning instructions recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Wood surfaces

  • Remove moisture immediately and use dehumidifiers, gentle heat, and fans for drying. (Use caution when applying heat to hardwood floors.)
  • PuroClean uses hardwood floor drying mats that draws the trapped moisture out of the floor.
  • Treated or finished wood surfaces may be cleaned with mild detergent and clean water and allowed to dry.
  • Wet paneling should be pried away from wall for drying.
  • If the floor is dry but is still cupped, it may take a few months to level back out again naturally. Do NOT sand the floor too soon, otherwise when it does settle again in a few months you will end up with peaking and will need to re-sand it.
  • Please note: These are guidelines for clean water damage. OSHA required Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) if water source is sewage or otherwise contaminated chemical or biological pollutants. Contact PuroClean Home Rescue if you experience any type of water loss, clean or otherwise. Do not use fans before determining that the water is clean or sanitary.

    Our PuroClean technicians are able to contain and mitigate damage from broken water supply lines, pipe breaks, slab leaks, toilet overflows, roof leaks and all other water damage incidents.

    Primary damage is the the initial water damage caused at the time of the loss, and can cause many different damaging effects from de-lamination, discoloration, warping, cracking, swelling and splitting of building materials and contents.

    Secondary damage is always much harder to visualize, because it can cause damage to items that didn't even get wet. As the moisture changes form from liquid to vapor, water evaporates and humidity, which is the amount of vapor in the air, increases causing vapor pressure. Vapor pressure is what causes this secondary damage and is the force vapors exert on their surroundings. Secondary damage causes the extent and cost of the loss to increase dramaticall with each passing hour as vapor reforms into condensation to be absorbed into porous materials, creating damage that could have been prevented in ceilings, walls, cabinets, artwork, and other contents.
