You may think the idea that your home could face fire damage is severely unlikely. You are careful, responsible, and you make sure never to leave fire hazards unattended. Many people have these same characteristics and still find themselves in the middle of a fire damage crisis inside of their own homes. 

The truth is that there are many potential causes of fire damage in your Arizona City home, and some of them are not as obvious as something like a candle. For example, an electrical malfunction can have a fire breaking out in your home in mere minutes, no matter how careful you are. There are many situations where a fire, which is entirely out of your control, could blaze to life. However, what matters at that moment is how you react to the situation, not what caused it to happen. Getting help as soon as you can, from both the fire department and a restoration company, could save you thousands of dollars of damage inside of your home. 

We here at SERVPRO always are ready to respond to your call as soon as you dial. Our technicians are fire and smoke damage experts.

From the moment we receive your call, our techs can gather and quickly travel to your home. We understand that when fire damage is addressed as soon as possible, restoration is more likely than replacement.

Quick Tips for Arizona City Homeowners After Flooding

During an emergency like a flood in your Arizona City home, you might not always be thinking as clearly as you hope. With a high-stress situation like this can become, it is best to know the few steps that you can initially take to help later restoration efforts be more efficient and cost-effective. While every one of these later listed tips might not apply to your particular circumstances, beginning even some of these steps before our SERVPRO team arrives can help to get the process started before mitigation does.

It is essential to understand that most flood damage in Arizona City residences exceeds the expertise and ability of homeowners to restore and repair on their own. Even our team has various divisions of skilled professionals ranging from our field technicians to experienced general contractors that can help with board up, tarping, controlled demolition, and later reconstruction as needed. Here are some things that you can do to help professional restoration after a flood loss.

Get Air Moving
Air circulation and ventilation can help to reduce the severity and speed of mold development after a devastating flood loss. While in many situations, microbial threats are unavoidable, lessening their severity can help remediation efforts be less costly and damaging to the house.

Remove Personal Belongings
Content management is a significant level of our restoration practices after fire and water loss incidents, but there are ways that you can help to protect the things that matter most to you. Your treasures and keepsakes might be in line to become exposed to contaminated floodwater, and by removing these items from the area or moving them to a safer portion of your property, you can make the rest of the content management process more efficient and have ensured the protection and security of your most favored belongings.

Turn Off Utilities
When possible, it can be a good idea to disconnect running utilities such as gas, electricity, and even water flowing into the house. All of these could become damaged by flooding under the right conditions, and you can prevent the situation from being more hazardous than necessary for our responding SERVPRO technicians.

Whether you can complete these steps on your own or not, our SERVPRO of Casa Grande team can help your property after a flood. Give us a call anytime at (520) 421-1894.

metal pipe leaking When plumbing issues affect your home, it is best to call a certified remediation company like SERVPRO. 

Get Rapid Response Water Removal in Arizona City

Pipe leaks, cracks, and other plumbing issues occur every day in homes all across America. The scale of the problem is much larger than many homeowners might expect. The amount of water leaking from US homes each year exceeds 1 trillion gallons. Even a 1/8" crack can leak as much as 250 gallons per day, which can cause considerable damage and create significant repair costs for homeowners.

If a plumbing issue results in the need for water removal in your Arizona City home, certified SERVPRO technicians are available to answer your call and mitigate problems fast. This highly experienced team offers tried-and-true techniques combined with cutting-edge technologies.

A Team That is Always Available

No matter what type of disaster you experience, SERVPRO technicians are available all across the United States and Canada at a whopping 1700 locations.

Response to disaster calls are immediate, and technicians work around the clock to ensure that homeowners can go back to business as usual.

How SERVPRO Can Restore Your Home

Water damage restoration emphasizes the preservation of structures and contents whenever possible, and one of the primary concerns of technicians is dealing with waterlogged carpet and padding. Delamination happens quite quickly with most carpets, making it a challenge to salvage carpet and replace it. This situation is usually evident from "bubbles" in the carpeting, especially in high-traffic areas. 

The primary and secondary backings of carpet are generally held together by a latex adhesive that also holds the carpet fibers to the primary backing. This glue starts to deteriorate as soon as the carpet is installed. Foot traffic, sunlight exposure, and gases in the air are enough to start breaking down this latex. Higher-grade latex adhesives feature components that can slow down the degradation process. Cheaper latex compounds have fillers that do not offer adhesive properties or protection from breakdown. 

No matter the state of the carpet, SERVPRO technicians work closely with homeowners and insurance adjusters to ensure that cleanup, disposal, and repair are all done per Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards and the property owner's insurance policy. 

SERVPRO of Casa Grande strives to leave your home looking, "Like it never even happened." For fast disaster cleanup, call (520) 421-1894 today.

Our Experts Are Here To Help You After A Fire In Your Coolidge Home

SERVPRO is Here to Help You Remediate the Fire Damage in Your Coolidge Home

Fire damage is not always catastrophic. Sometimes, it can be incredibly minimal, and you may feel that professional services are not necessary. However, even small damages should be addressed immediately, and it is essential to remember that if you're going to attempt a DIY job.

To do a DIY remediation job well, you must address the fire damage in your Coolidge home as soon as possible. For this example, let's say that an unattended candle in your bedroom caused some minor fire damage to the wall behind your bedside table. The candle caught the ends of a nearby scarf on fire, which hung from a wall mount. Luckily, before anything else burned, you were able to extinguish the fire.

The small fire left some soots stains on the wall behind the scarf and caused minimal damage to the paint on the wall. In this situation, SERVPRO recommends that you first clean the soot off of the wall the best you can. Here at SERVPRO, we use a house-made cleaning solution specially designed to lift and break apart soot. You may find yourself needing to use gentle sanding paper to take away whatever else remains before you paint over the area that the damage occurred.

SERVPRO could use advanced technological devices to reduce the malodor left behind by fire damage, such as air scrubbers with carbon filters. We could also use special paint to seal in the odor. However, it is not always easy to come across these methods as a non-professional. You could open a window and use a fan to try and air out your bedroom and reduce the scent left behind by the fire.

Should you feel like the scent lingers, or fear that you were unable to do some aspect of the remediation successfully, get help now. Speak with SERVPRO of Casa Grande by dialing (520) 421-1894. No matter the time, our techs are ready to help.

SERVPRO Has a Comprehensive Hazard Management Plan After Flood Damage Affects Coolidge Properties.

12/11/2019 (Permalink)

A open book with words written about Hazard Management and Emergency Plan. Coolidge residents we know how serious flood damage can be, let us help with your Hazard Management Plan.

A Hazard Management Plan makes all the difference in your Coolidge home.

Flooding incidents can lead to different hazards in your Coolidge property, exposing your loved ones to harm. When you hire a company like SERVPRO to restore your flooded property, you can be assured that should there be a hazard, our technicians take the right steps to fix it.  

Hazard Recognition

Countless hazards can develop after flood damage incidents in Coolidge. Common ones include the presence of biohazards, chemicals such as pesticides, fuels, solvents, and caustic chemicals or the exposure of hazardous materials such as mercury asbestos or lead. Structural deterioration can lead to hazards such as collapsing ceiling and electrical faults. It is rare for one loss site to pose all these risks, so our SERVPRO technicians first set out to identify what dangers might be at your loss site.

Communicating To Others in the Area

Just as the types of risks vary, so do their effects. Some might have immediate ramifications if the occupants of the property are exposed. For example, electrical faults can cause immediate injury through electrocution. Others, like exposure to hazardous materials, may not have immediately discernible effects but can have long-term implications on the property occupants. At SERVPRO, the safety of the occupants is our priority, so we provide clear information about the hazards, and where applicable, we isolate the hazard areas from the rest of the house.

Initiating Control

Specialized skills, safety equipment, and sufficient time are some of the requirements necessary when dealing with flooding hazards. We have technicians with specialized training at SERVPRO to handle issues such as the removal of hazardous materials and mold abatement. Engineering controls such as plastic containments help prevent the spread of dangerous materials, especially when tearing down affected areas. We also use PPE, Personal Protective Equipment and use alternative sources of power such as generators to ensure safety

Documenting the Hazard

Dealing with the hazard can extend the remediation process beyond the expected timelines and sometimes cause problems with the insurer. Proper documentation of the issue and notification helps prevent such problems.

When properly managed, flooding situations in Casa Grande, Maricopa, and Arizona City are easier to address. Call SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520) 421-1894 to help. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Our Water Damage Experts Can Save Your Home In Florence

water incident in home We make it, “Like it never even happened.”

When You Need Water Cleanup in Florence

The water cleanup associated with a plumbing emergency is an essential step in mitigating damages. Water often brings sludge, dirt, and even foul odors that linger if not cleaned properly. It is crucial to sanitize and deodorize when cleaning. Disinfecting the affected areas eliminates possible mold infestations.

SERVPRO offers prompt water cleanup in Florence for any amount of damage. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster. It is essential to deal with the water spill quickly to ensure the least amount of residual damage as possible. Technicians not only remove excess water and dry the impacted areas of your residence but they also thoroughly clean the area. Water detection, removal, and drying are necessary steps before cleaning and restoration to preloss condition.

Cleaning is not only using disinfectants. Before the SERVPRO professionals can clean, they must reduce humidity in the home to below 50 percent, so mold infestations are not an issue. Air movers blow at such extreme velocity that evaporation occurs quickly. Industrial dehumidifiers pull away excess moisture resulting in progressively drier air circulating throughout the room. The most vigorous defense against mold growth is to dry the impacted area quickly.

After our thermo-hygrometers determine the relative humidity is at 50 percent, disinfecting and deodorizing may be required. The trained SERVPRO technicians use a customized combination of antimicrobial, EPA-registered broad-spectrum disinfectant, and sanitizing chemical agents to clean the impacted area. We use specialized solutions, including our exclusive Orange cleaner.

Technicians apply chemical agents to all contaminated items and surfaces for effectiveness and carefully follow all product instructions. Physical contact and enough dwell time are essential in eliminating microbes. Since each cleanup situation is not the same, technicians use different chemical agents. Technicians inform you about the products used and provide MSD sheets if needed. Customers always know the restoration plan for their home, each step of the way, from the first contact until the home is restored to preloss condition.

For water cleanup in Florence, contact SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520) 421-1894 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We make it, “Like it never even happened.”

Ways to Limit Issues After Flood Damage in Arizona City Homes

When people mention Arizona, they most often bring up the dry heat and sunny days. What they do not talk about, are the flash floods most of the state experiences from time to time.

When intense storms strike, homes in Arizona City may receive flood damage as they are within a floodplain. This increases the possibility that groundwater may be an issue at some point in many properties. Knowing how to handle it, if it happens, is half the battle for the recovery of the property and contents.

Why SERVPRO?

Experiencing flood damage in your home is an overwhelming situation. Mold has the potential to complicate the cleanup unless extraction efforts and drying begin within 24 hours after the event. With their general contractor license #310262, SERVPRO offers the seamless service to homeowners to both restore and handle reconstruction for any flood loss to the home and reduce the anxiety of finding both a company for restoration and one for reconstruction.

Create a Flood Action Plan

Determine the most likely entry point for water into your home and look at the items most likely to be a loss. A half-inch of groundwater in your home quickly swells and buckles wooden chair and table legs, leaves sludge and debris on the carpet, and raises the ambient humidity indoors, which affects photos, artwork, and essential books or papers.

Designating a safe place in another place in the home to move items to can lessen the loss. Industrial plastic bins that stack neatly in the attic or garage until needed are an excellent way to quickly pack away small but valuable items and protect them from the effects of the moisture.

DIY Flood Cleanup Often is Inadequate

Fans and wet/dry vacuums just cannot do a complete job extracting the water. The subfloor receives the effects of water damage, and this often involves the removal of tile or carpet to dry it. Water left within wall cavities sets the home up for buckled sheetrock and mold infestations. All water loss areas must receive attention, or the probability of secondary damages increases.

Flood damage happens fast, and SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520) 421-1894 is ready 24/7 to restore and rebuild water loss to your home and make it "Like it never even happened."

Can Sandbags or Temporary Dams Prevent Coolidge Flooding?

In flood-prone areas of Coolidge and the surrounding regions, damages can quickly invade a property and spread. The priority of any homeowner is to stop this progression of flooding as much as possible, and that is why many homes utilize sandbags and dams to reduce the penetration of rising waters outside. Should everyone use these methods to slow damages to their property?

As much as any homeowner might seek to avoid flood damage to their Coolidge residence, this is not always as straightforward as throwing sandbags across doorways and likely penetration points. There are multiple methods for flooding to occur, and depending on the type of emergency your house contends with, you can determine the likelihood of preventative measures being successful. Our SERVPRO team can always help to restore these properties regardless of the effects your home experiences.

When It Will Not Work
If storm damages have caused structural concerns with the roof, siding, or other openings of your property, potential flooding you could experience is not likely to become thwarted by the application of temporary dams. This flooding has a direct path inside of your home and does not get attributed to rising waters outside.

When You Should Try
Many flooding scenarios develop over days, allowing property owners to listen to weather reports for the time rivers and other bodies of water crest and become a danger to the nearby structures. Because this flooding does not always happen at once, you can often get a warning about rising floodwaters to deploy dams and lay down sandbags. In these situations, you can often limit flood exposure with a barrier surrounding your residence.

Because of how destructive flooding can be for your house, you should know that our SERVPRO team is a full-service restoration crew complete with a division of licensed residential contractors to help you recover after this disaster. We can offer temporary construction solutions and eliminate vulnerabilities that continually keep your home at risk for further damage.

Flooding can be a dangerous and hazardous situation when you are not careful to mind its severity. Always prioritize safetyand leave the full recovery of your damaged home to our SERVPRO of Casa Grande professionals. Give our crew a call today at (520) 421-1894.
