When your home suddenly floods, the situation can rapidly escalate from alarming to catastrophic. Thankfully, Purofirst of Metropolitan Washington is prepared to tackle even the most extreme cases. Keep reading to learn about an intriguing case where a multi-level flood caused extensive water damage, which our team successfully restored in just five days.

A Water Damage Restoration Project for the Professionals

On a late Saturday night, we received an urgent call about a multi-floor flood in a condominium building in Washington, D.C. Our team was on the scene within 90 minutes. Recognizing the severity of the situation, we knew immediate action was all but necessary. The longer water remains on building materials, the greater the risk of microbial growth and structural damage.

Upon arrival, we immediately geared up with our personal protective equipment (PPE) and commenced the initial assessment. The magnitude of the water pumping required was evident from the start, and our team was fully prepared to handle it with our specialized equipment and professional expertise.

The Drying Process

Our team of IICRC-certified professionals is trained to follow a top-down drying system. Based on a psychrometric science method, our technicians use pure air and water vapor set at atmospheric pressure. Our state-of-the-art air movers help create a vortex to facilitate the evaporation process. 

While the air movers run, low-grain refrigerant dehumidifiers draw in cool, wet air while blowing out warm, dry air. Our top-down drying system is efficient and effective enough to salvage almost any water-damaged material, including wood, carpet, drywall, and more. The last step was to apply an EPA-grade disinfectant to eliminate the chances of mold and mildew growth in the future.
