Catastrophic Flooding Can Damage Your Casa Grande Property in Minutes

When a flash flood occurs, there is not much that owners can do to protect their property. The priority is always to move to high ground and make sure that your employees are safe. When it is all over, and the water has receded, check that conditions are safe to enter the area. The water was likely contaminated, and there could be electrical hazards caused by the flash flood. Slips and falls are also a concern due to mud and debris left after the flood.

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.

Arizona City Home Slightly Torched from a Fire? Call SERVPRO for a Lights Out Cleanup and Restoration Service

Addressing the Simple Challenges Arising after Fire Damage in Your Arizona City Home

Fire incidents are very destructive and leave trails of financial and sentimental loss in their wake. Apart from the major losses, fire incidents can also pose several challenges that make it difficult to reclaim the affected property. Hiring a professional to help you restore fire damage is one way to overcome the simple challenges.

Lighting the Work Areas

If the fire damage in your Arizona City home is significant, it is likely to affect power cables and lighting fixtures. Even if not damages, it might not be advisable to switch on lights after a fire because of the risk of shorts. Since some parts of the house might not be well lit from natural light, you need other sources of illuminations. Our SERVPRO technicians use various types of temporary lighting fixtures for illumination and safety. They include:

  • Stand Lights
  • Wobble Lights
  • String Lights
  • Bulb Cages or Guards
  • Getting Rid of Smoky Odor

Cleanup Protocols and Methods

Restoration of fire damage involves several cleanup steps. However, even after cleaning surfaces, clearing debris and removing all residues, the smoky odor might persist. Although it is a simple problem, it can make the house uncomfortable. Our SERVPRO technicians use different deodorization procedures to remove such odor. We can fog the area using specialized equipment such as ULV foggers, which atomize the deodorizing agent. Fogging replicates the characteristics of smoke, allowing the deodorizer to penetrate materials and neutralize odor particles. We can also use hydroxyl generators, which chemically alter odor particles neutralizing them.

Corrosive Residues

You might notice surfaces changing color or rusting after an incident of fire damage. Such issues affect stone surfaces such as marble and metallic ones such as doorknobs. Soot and other smoke residues have corrosive properties, which cause such changes. If left unaddressed, the changes can become permanent. Our SERVPRO technicians take different steps, including pre-cleaning the affected areas and applying oil-based products to protect the materials before full cleaning.

Fire creates severe as well as simple problems. Call SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520) 421-1894. We can ensure it's, "Like it never even happened."

What is the Best Water Extraction Equipment to Use for Coolidge Homeowners?

10/1/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO truck and drying equipment in front of house. This is just some of the equipment that we have at our disposal to restore your home. Call us today!

Bigger Is Not Always Better for Coolidge Water Extraction 

Some people believe that to provide Coolidge homeowners with the most efficient and thorough services, you need to have the most powerful and most significant tools on the market. While our team does have access to high-capacity extraction tools and equipment, these are not always needed to complete the jobs that property owners need. Water loss incidents can vary significantly in severity and the spread, making smaller tools sometimes more ideal for the task at hand. 

Our professionals do not know what your home needs until we have thoroughly assessed the water damage in a Coolidge residence. We strive to provide this service quickly so that there is a minimal delay between a better scope of the damage your property faces and the tools and personnel to make it right. Our SERVPRO team has accreditations from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration (IICRC) in both structural drying and water restoration. This training gives us a knowledgeable approach to whatever loss effects our team might face inside. 

Our technicians have access to two of the largest extraction machines available. One is the extractor truck with a mounted pump in the Green Fleet. We also use a gas-powered, engine-driven trash pump that is a stationary powerful removal machine for homes and businesses alike. These large extractors have their place in our inventory as efficient machines; however, they can often be overkill for a small water loss incident. 

Many residential projects that our SERVPRO professionals undertake involve little more than the use of our portable pumps and wet-vacs. These mobile options can work to remove standing water in many areas of the house efficiently. With our trailered generator, we can even offer these electric pump options when the power has become temporarily disabled in your water-damaged home. 

Working efficiently to restore your home after a water loss incident hinges on finding the balance between our capable equipment and the specific threat to your residence. You can count on the experience and fast response of our SERVPRO of Casa Grande to help. Call us anytime at (520) 421-1894.

We Discuss Helpful Steps During Flood Damage Incidents In Your Arizona City Home

10/1/2019 (Permalink)

Water damage due to flooding in house Flooding incidents can happen when least expected, so you have to be quick on your feet.

Helpful Steps During Flood Damage Incidents In Arizona City

A flooding incident can occur at any time. Although some incidents might involve clean water such as when a torn roof allows rainwater to filter into the building, most flooding incidents involve black water. When such an incident happens in your Arizona home, some actions taken immediately can help you save valuables, or protect your family from infectious diseases and other health risks. Calling a professional flood damage restorer like SERVPRO is great, but you can also take a few steps as you wait for help.

You can try to control what is affected by flooding damage in your Arizona City home. In a case involving rising groundwater, you can evacuate contents from the ground floor to first floor or other elevated locations within your house. You should start with porous materials because if the contaminated floodwaters reach such materials, they might be too contaminated to save. For semi-porous materials such as wood furniture, you can save them by preventing or limiting contact with the floodwater.

In your rush to save your valuables, you might need to wade into flooded areas. Such action creates an even more severe problem because the floodwater might contain traces of infectious diseases such as tetanus, cholera, typhoid, or others. Saving a few valuables then falling sick later on is not a great strategy. You should only wade into the water if you have rubber boots. Otherwise, it is best to wait for help. Our SERVPRO crews have various PPE, Personal Protective Equipment, including rubber boots and full-body suits allowing then to wade safely into any level of water. We also spray EPA registered disinfectants directly into the water to control contaminants.

You should evacuate at-risk people from your property as soon as you can to protect them from the dangers posed by the flooding incident. Floodwaters pose a wide range of risks, including exposing people to contaminants and releasing dangerous gases such as methane in the affected property. At-risk people, therefore, include:

• Young children
• People with respiratory problems
• The elderly
• People with immunity deficiency
• People sensitive to chemicals

Flooding incidents can happen when least expected, so you have to be quick on your feet. You can also call SERVPRO of Casa Grande to help save your valuables. Reach us at (520) 421-1894 any time. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

Our Experts Discuss How To Treat Rust Stains In Your Coolidge Property After A Flood

8/12/2019 (Permalink)

If your paint store ever gets flooded out after a rainstorm, call SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520) 421-1894.

Commercial Flood Damage Crews In Coolidge Tell Us How To Treat Rust Stains

This time of year it is common for storms and monsoon rains to strike the Coolidge region. Once moisture builds up on the outside, it could get inside your paint store and cause excessive commercial flood damage. Once water enters any structure, it quickly begins to destroy your contents and building materials. Items that come into direct contact with water suffer from primary problems. However, moisture in the air can also cause secondary issues.

For example, wet carpet can get delaminated when wet, and drywall can get ruined if the relative humidity level inside is too high. When mitigating commercial flood damage in Coolidge, our SERVPRO technicians take measures to prevent secondary problems from occurring. We can accomplish this by setting up dehumidifiers to remove water vapor from the air. We also set up drying equipment to quickly dry out any wet items inside your store.

In any paint shop, there are a large number of metal paint cans being store. The presence of a large number of metal items can increase the possibility of suffering from problems with rust stains. When metal gets wet, it goes through a chemical change, and rust is formed. Wet metal cans sitting on carpet or fabric shelving can leave rust stains on the fabric if the metal cans get damp.

When rust stains any type of fabric or your carpeting materials, it can be difficult to remove. When dealing with rust-stained fabrics, our SERVPRO technicians utilize a strongly acidic cleaning solution. Rusticide is a chemical we often use, and it is an oxalic-phosphoric acid solution used for the removal of rust stains from cotton, linen, silk, wool, synthetic fibers, and carpeting, caused by metal contact with damp fabrics.

The strong acid reacts with the rust stain and disintegrates it. When using rusticide, we use extreme caution and avoid any spilling since it is dangerous for humans if it gets in their eyes or on their skin. We apply the chemical directly to the rust stain, and we sometimes use a brush to agitate the stain which pushes the chemicals deeper into the fabric. We then steam clean your carpets after the chemical has been applied.

If your paint store in Arizona City, Florence, or Eloy ever gets flooded out after a rainstorm, call SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520) 421-1894 so that we can return your store to its preloss state “Like it never even happened.”

Rapid And High-Quality Results Are Why SERVPRO Is Casa Grande’s Preferred Restoration Partner

Leading by example, our owners and managers seek out foundational and continuing education in the best practices of the disaster restoration industry. When we arrive to assess water, fire, mold, or storm loss at your Casa Grande home have confidence that our knowledge, experience, and advanced equipment can handle any catastrophe. Our work ethic and Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) training quickly transforms the mess and chaos to “Like it never even happened.”

Water Damage
An overflowing tub or leaking shower door in your Casa Grande home spells water damage, often more than a pile of hastily grabbed towels or a mop can manage. For one thing, if it happened once it is probable it happened many other times without your noticing. Even if the tile floor looks dry after a quick cleanup, trouble could be brewing beneath the surface.

Water migrates if it finds any way to move away from its source. SERVPRO uses advanced moisture monitoring and thermal imaging technology to follow the path of water incursions. Sometimes we trace a map of saturated building materials that need structural drying. Other times we locate a larger cache of trapped water ready to break through a ceiling or run down walls. If we find hidden pooled water, our technicians can use deliberate, controlled strategies to release and capture it with minimal disturbance to nearby contents or structures.

If you smell a musty odor in the bathroom or adjacent rooms or hallways, another crisis can be lurking. Unmitigated, water leaks or spills can lead to mold growth and damage in a matter of 24 to 48 hours. No matter what your potential water disaster involves, we have the IICRC-trained technicians and state-of-the-art equipment to assess the damage and develop and implement a plan to recover from all its effects.

Fire Damage
The emotional stress of Casa Grande fire damage can be overwhelming to you and your family. During the aftermath of a household fire, you need the skills and support of our highly-qualified managers and Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT). The surface residues and airborne contaminants found after a fire are incredibly toxic and challenging to remove and manage. Let our team help you shoulder the burden of recovering from this life-altering event.

If the damage to your home is substantial, you and your loved ones might need to relocate during the mitigation, remediation, and restoration phases of the project. SERVPRO helps you document this need to your insurance company. We are proficient when working with home coverage carriers, always keeping you informed and your needs preeminent as we correspond with them. Pack-outs of contents is often a smart move after severe fires. We track your possessions using our Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS), which also provides evidence for restoration and replacement insurance claims.

Our licensure as a general and residential contractor means that after we complete all fire mitigation and remediation work, we can also offer you repair and rebuilding services. The peace of mind you feel when one reliable contractor can manage a fire loss from assessment to complete restoration is incalculable. We're honored to assist our customers in such a comprehensive way.
 
Mold Remediation
Mold damage in Casa Grande might seem like a rare occurrence, but with the right conditions inside your home, it can become a real headache. The mold spores found everywhere in your home await the chance to absorb even a small bit of water. If you have a tiny leak in a pipe or a child who splashes vigorously in the bathtub, enough moisture can become available for a spore to grow given 24 to 48 hours.

The harm caused by mold is a concern for homeowners because it can weaken building materials. It also causes an unpleasant smell, and large colonies of unwanted fungal organisms are unsightly. Some individuals report irritation or allergic reactions, as well. SERVPRO offers customers an effective Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-designed mold remediation intervention. Anyone with even a suspicion that mold is growing in their home should investigate using our services.

When our mold remediators arrive, they locate the growth, sometimes with testing, but more often following your lead and visual examination. We partition off the moldy area, containing it with plastic sheeting and sealing the perimeter with the help of an air scrubber. Our crew dons personal protective equipment for safety and to prevent further spread. Then we scrape or soda-blast off the mold, bag it, and dispose of it per local rules. Disinfection with EPA-registered products helps inhibit rebound mold growth.

Storm Damage
Perhaps the most challenging part of dealing with storm damage in Casa Grande is the potential for extreme weather to affect your home both inside and out. When other disasters strike, the effects often contain themselves to a single area of your home and a similarity of damage type. The high winds, thunder and lightning, and torrential rains of Arizona’s monsoon season can bring water, fire, and mold potential to your home in one pass.

It is also probable that the integrity of the exterior of your home is on the line during a violent storm. Trees and other heavy debris can crush a roof or punch a hole in your siding, carried by fierce winds. Water pours inside from the top and sides from rain, and through the foundation if flash flooding occurs.

SERVPRO has seen all of these consequences visited on other homeowners before your experience. We take that familiarity and pair it with our training and cutting edge equipment to take charge of your catastrophic scenario, dedicated to bringing back the comfort and security of your home. We possess the ability to manage all aspects of the storm damage, from securing the scene to rebuilding. This allows our customers to breathe freely once again, knowing that the complex project is in our expert hands.

SERVPRO of Casa Grande is with you every step of the way as we assess, plan, and restore after your home suffers from water, fire, mold, or storm damage. Call (520) 421-1894 to see that We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
