Professional Help When There is Flood Damage to Your Home in Maricopa

Most people think of Arizona as a dry expanse of land, but if nature has shown us anything as of recent is that Maricopa residents need to be ready to react quickly to the impact of severe weather. Even when parts of the state have seen snow, in Maricopa many households are susceptible to flooding. Homeowners need to be ready to act should their homes be in peril and reaching out to a competent team of professionals is the first step towards protecting your property.

SERVPRO is ready when there is flood damage to your home in Maricopa. When nature takes over your home, as well as those around you, a quick reaction can save you time, anguish and money. Relying on our professional team to return your home to normal can make all the difference in mitigating your loss. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to respond to your emergency as soon as possible.

When our Green Fleet arrives at your home, it assesses the extent of the flood damage and identifies action steps while keeping safety in mind. Removing any standing water and contaminated contents from your home is of paramount importance, and we work on resolving those quickly. Flood waters are loaded with bacteria and debris that require full removal of materials such as carpeting, all for the sake of returning your home to pristine condition. Our SERVPRO team sets up submersible pumps to rid your home of deep standing water and utilizes handheld devices for smaller deposits. Moisture sensors and meters continuously measure the levels of humidity and inform our team on how to proceed.

Drying your home is just as important as extracting water. To speed up the process we may install drying mats, dehumidifiers and air movers to encourage air circulation and evaporation necessary to return to normal moisture levels. Our SERVPRO technicians may also resort to thermal imaging to help identify any spots still holding water. When the drying step is complete, we apply best practices to disinfect your home. Disinfection is an essential process in protecting your home from the proliferation of unwanted bacteria or microorganisms brought in by flood waters.

As overwhelming as it may be, flood damage is better handled by industry professionals. At SERVPRO of Casa Grande, we are only a call away. Reach out to (520) 421-1894 and let us help you leave your home “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO Fire Damage and Deodorization Techniques in Arizona City

Immediately after a blaze in the home, looking around at the fire damage even from a small fire can seem overwhelming. The two most common places for fires in homes in Arizona are the kitchen and garage. Both areas have the potential to deliver high-heat fires that melt plastics and synthetics, leaving an oily, wet smoke residue that lingers with a strong odor. The longer you wait to begin the restoration process, the more residues and odors can penetrate objects in the home as well set up for the invasion of mold if water remains from putting out the fire.

When SERVPRO technicians work on a kitchen fire in a home in Arizona City, we immediately access where the damage occurred in the home and contain it to stop the further spread of soot and odors to currently unaffected areas. Handheld wet vacuums can effectively remove standing water from cabinets and weep holes drilled in the back allow air circulation to dry behind cabinets and inhibit setting up a future home for mold growth. Why SERVPRO? Our IICRC certified technicians are available 24-hours a day to mitigate your loss from fire.

After water removal is complete, our technicians employ different methods to dry the kitchen thoroughly. Air movers are positioned to move the air up and out and penetrate the cabinet spaces and baseboards may be removed during the drying stage to ensure no residual moisture remains. Powerful antifungals cleaners used after drying further deter the growth of mold and bacteria.

After drying, technicians may choose to use air scrubbers and hydroxyl machines. These are particularly effective because they catch and bond to hidden soot particles in the air, which reduces odors. For a high-heat fire, which is common for fires in the kitchen, our Odor Control Technician (OCT) uses thermal fogging, a method that works on the same principle that allowed smoke to penetrate porous objects, a heated fog neutralizes and deodorizes foul odors left by the fire and water. As you can see, we have numerous resources for restoring a home and contents after the loss from a fire.

Our SERVPRO of Casa Grande fire damage restoration technicians serve the local communities with our emergency services. Call (520) 421-1894 any time day or night, and we can begin restoring your home to normal within hours.

Fire Damage Leaves Homes In Arizona City With Unpleasant Odors

Mitigating the effects of a fire where structural harm occurred and where personal belongings and furnishings sustained charring, soot deposition, and melting from the heat is only part of the mitigation battle in an Arizona City home. The skilled specialists at SERVPRO care about the condition of your house and the environment in which your family lives.

Any fire, including small ones, can cause your home's indoor air quality to plummet simply because of the way fire damage affects a Arizona City house. While the smoke does eventually clear and you can once again see from one end of a room to another without smoke blocking your vision, many smoke particles still remain. These tiny remnants of the fire make your home smell and can even cause slight health effects. Spikes in humidity can make these odors more pronounced, and increases in the heat can do the same. SERVPRO is always ready to help you make your house more comfortable by getting rid of what causes these pungent odors.

Our IICRC-certified Odor Control Technician (OCT) relies on ozone or hydroxyl generators to eliminate or neutralize odor-causing substances quite regularly. For smoky odors, these might not suffice as such odors come from soot particles that continually break down and re-enter the air inside your living space. We have more effective methods that keep this from happening.

Using a method that mimics smoke and its behavior during a fire helps get thermal fog into the same areas that our physical tools cannot reach. Once inside nooks and crannies behind and inside structures (both within your home's framework and inside furniture and other objects), the fog's chemical compounds bond with soot and other odor-causing substances. Now heavier, these larger molecules become much less likely to find their way into the air where you and your family experience them as odors.

Some locations, particularly the bathroom and the kitchen, often become full of steam or experience higher temperatures than other areas of your home. Because these two conditions make slight odors more noticeable, we can treat these areas with long-lasting scented gel packs. When your kitchen or bathroom contain carpet, injecting odor control liquids becomes an effective option. Our skilled specialists are here to answer your questions and provide you with guidance on how each method can help your home become more inviting and comfortable.

Call us, SERVPRO of Casa Grande, at (520) 421-1894, so we can help you with your Arizola, Florence, or Coolidge home lose the leftover smoky odors caused by fire damage. We do more than structural mitigation - we also make sure everything, including what you cannot see, is just “Like it never even happened.”

Why SERVPRO Responds So Fast To Disaster Cleanup Like Flood Damage In Maricopa

Disasters can affect anyone in Maricopa, but only a few affect the city as a whole. Flooding could cause thousands of dollars in damage in a very short period, even if the water level stays fairly low. Homeowners need to make sure that their families have somewhere to stay that is safe, secure, and comfortable.

Because you want to get your family back home as soon as possible after your Maricopa home sustains flood damage, we want to explain why SERVPRO is Faster to Any Size Disaster. One major reason is that we want to prevent as much damage as possible through mitigating your home and protecting as much as possible of both structure and contents.

Doing so involves making sure that we move as much of your home's contents to higher levels while keeping that area dry, including keeping water vapor to a minimum. We can bring our own power sources to run desiccant machines on upper levels of your home, or box up and take your belongings to our secure facility.

The sooner our experts begin, the sooner we can complete the work needed to get your home back in order and livable. Ensuring that your home is also a safe structure, both with wiring and plumbing, as well as gas and telecommunications systems, requires we partner with licensed professionals. Doing so significantly reduces the time involved, as well as substantially lowering the associated costs. Moving back home sooner, and retaining more of your money, puts your family in a better position than what they might otherwise experience.

Starting sooner also means that your property stays protected as we work, as trespassing is less likely to happen than if it were completely vacant. We can also help you retrieve items that you need while away from your home, making things even easier and less stressful for you.

We not only arrive quickly, but we also work fast in mitigating and restoring your home. We also use preventative techniques to prevent damage that is most likely to occur after a flood. We can explain these possible future effects, so you know what to look for inside your home.

Water Damage The Most Common Mistakes People Make With Water Damage Restoration in Maricopa When water damage happens, you need to react fast for best results. Contact our certified SERVPRO team for water removal efforts.

Immediate Water Cleanup for a Plumbing Disaster at Your Maricopa Home

While you work to maintain the needs of your Maricopa house as the situations arise, some incidents require a more experienced approach and technique than you have to offer. While you might have many instances where DIY approaches can save you some money, when it comes to water loss incidents occurring in your house, you want to ensure that the damage gets cleaned up entirely and thoroughly to avoid worsening conditions.

When homeowners think of the term water cleanup in Maricopa, mops and buckets are often brought to mind. While these tools certainly have their place in the realm of water incidents, larger-scale situations like plumbing leaks and pipe breaks often lead to the need for more advanced equipment. Our SERVPRO technicians have extensive training in all facets of water restoration and have the industry-leading equipment to overcome the damage that even the immediate presence of water has caused to your house.

From the moment that our team arrives at your house, we prioritize reducing the spread of the water damage to new areas. This isolation not only makes the restoration process easier, but it also helps to protect structural components and the contents of your home from becoming at risk. If there is pooling, our technicians set out to use our extraction equipment like portable pumps or wet-vacs with extraction wands to remove this excess, leaving just saturated materials behind.

Pulling the moisture from these affected areas requires a working knowledge of the highest concentrations of dampness and moisture throughout the affected areas. Our SERVPRO professionals have moisture detection equipment to pinpoint damp areas to focus our efforts and specialized equipment on pulling the moisture out from areas like the subflooring, wall cavities, and ceiling spaces.

As much as water cleanup seems like something that anyone can do, water damage spreads quickly and can prove challenging to remove entirely. With the right professional assistance, like what you find with our SERVPRO of Casa Grande restoration technicians, you can get your house back to preloss conditions quickly.

SERVPRO Will Remove Water Damage From Your Casa Grande Bakery

Commercial SERVPRO Will Remove Water Damage From Your Casa Grande Bakery Call the experts of SERVPRO today to restore your business.

Commercial Water Removal Technicians In Casa Grande Talk About Sanitization And Deodorization

Whenever excessive moisture enters your bakery in Casa Grande, there are several issues that come about that could cause you to lose business. Whenever conducting a commercial water removal project, our SERVPRO technicians take extra measures to reduce your company's loss of revenue as a result of a disaster. During the process, our crews often change their work procedures so that your business can stay operating. Before leaving a project, we also make sure that there is no trace of any of the problems that were created during the water leak so that your business does not get negatively affected in the future. A major part of any commercial water removal project is the final cleaning and deodorization process.
 
Our SERVPRO technicians know that having pleasant odors and a sanitary environment to serve food is vital in the bakery business. During many commercial water removal projects in Casa Grande, foul odors can get created due to the presence of water. Having standing water inside a building increases the chances of harmful bacteria existing. Excessive moisture can also cause mildew-like odors to exist. Any time organic materials inside a structure get wet, there is a possibility that mold can form which can create more odor problems.
 
After any water damage restoration job we take measures to prevent future mold growth and odor problems. To do this, we use a combination of disinfectants and sanitizers. EPA registered disinfectants kill microorganism odors and germs as well as work as a masking agent that helps cover up foul smells. Sanitizers help control microorganisms when dealing with all types of moisture including gray and black water.
 
To make sure that mold does not form in areas of your bakery that got wet, we often spray the affected region with antimicrobial solutions. These chemicals help kill mold and spores and aid in preventing the future development of microbes. Before we leave the project, we can spray other masking agents that help cover up malodors. If you ever notice any damage after a water leak takes place in your bakery, call SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520) 421-1894 seven days a week.

Do Not Fret About Mold In Your Maricopa Home Our Experts Have You Covered!

Why SERVPRO Do Not Fret About Mold In Your Maricopa Home Our Experts Have You Covered! Call SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520) 421-1894 assist. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Why SERVPRO Fixes All Aspects Of Mold Damage In Maricopa

Mold develops easily in properties if conditions are perfect. Mold requires different things to grow, but in most cases, only sufficient moisture is usually unavailable. So, whenever there is excess moisture in a property, growth starts developing within 24 to 48 hours. Fixing the resulting damage requires different steps including cleaning and drying the property. With the advanced skills, our IICRC certified Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians have, it is possible to address all the issues arising from a mold infestation in your property.

The level of mold damage in Maricopa properties depends mostly on the materials present in the affected areas. Organic materials like wood are affected most because mold feeds on them to fuel its growth. A material like concrete does not have organic properties to feed mold, but since moisture takes a long time to permeate through concrete, it can create a moisture reservoir, which affects other materials in the area. Understanding these underlying factors in each case of mold growth helps our SERVPRO technicians create the correct response approach.

Unsightly patches on surfaces and musty smells are the most apparent effects of mold damage. Eliminating these effects through cleanup is easy. However, growth also leads to the deterioration of surfaces because the hyphae grow deep into the affected surface in search of organic materials. Our SERVPRO technicians evaluate the affected materials to establish the level of porosity. If the material is porous and the growth is extensive, we opt to replace the material instead of cleaning. On non-porous surfaces, we use professional antimicrobial cleaning products to remove residues and inhibit future growth.

Since moisture presence can keep fueling future mold outbreaks, it is necessary to establish all sources of moisture and dry all wet materials. Our SERVPRO technicians rely on a variety of moisture detection equipment like thermo-hygrometers, which help establish humidity levels in the affected areas, unaffected area, outside the structure and the exhaust from dehumidifiers ensuring we run an effective drying process. We also have high-speed air movers for fast evaporation and industrial grade dehumidifiers for effective moisture extraction from the air.

Controlling mold problems is more manageable with professional assistance. Call SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520) 421-1894 assist. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Maricopa's Mold Damage Technicians Talk About Removal Methods

A small water leak that you do not notice right away inside your Maricopa home can create an environment where fungi can form. Microbes can be found naturally both indoors and outdoors; therefore once moisture affects organic materials inside your house, these microbes can turn into larger structures that can cause extensive mold damage. It is unknown how many different species of fungi exist, but it is estimated that there are hundreds of thousands of various types. A fungus grows best in damp, warm and humid environments meaning that dark, confined places inside your home make good places for mold damage to occur once moisture is added to the scenario.
 
All kinds of fungal contamination can cause health effects, so it is a wise idea to call in a professional company like SERVPRO. It is important to know that having black mold damage in Maricopa is no different than suffering problems from any other type of fungi. Fungal contamination issues can be treated, and the chances of microbial growth in the future can be reduced, but we cannot ever promise total elimination. Since spores naturally exist in the air, it is impossible to eliminate every possibility that the contamination will return. However, with the use of industrially advanced techniques and equipment, we can remove the majority of the mold contamination in most situations.
 
Before we work towards removing mold from contaminated surfaces, our SERVPRO technicians set up plastic barriers to trap in any harmful particles created during the removal process. Once containment is established we attach an air scrubber to the chamber that creates negative air pressure inside the affected area. This causes any spores or other harmful particles that get released when we scrape or sand off the contamination to get pulled through a HEPA filter before being exhausted back into the environment.
 
When removing the hyphae structures from the contaminated surfaces, we sometimes use methods other than scraping or sanding for delicate materials. In some cases, we use soda blasters or dry ice pellet blasting methods to remove the contamination. If you ever notice any type of fungal contamination, call SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520) 421-1894 24/7.

Sprinkler System Damage Can Cause Problems for a Maricopa Hotel

Fire suppression systems offer peace of mind for your Maricopa hotel if a disaster was to occur. These sprinkler units can help to limit the spread of a fire throughout the building, preserving the materials and the contents of the hotel from significant or irreparable damages. When these systems become damaged, even by something as direct as breaking off one of the sprinkler units on the ceiling, a high volume of water could find its way out onto the floors of the affected area.

Guests in your Maricopa hotel and water damage do not mix well. They also do not want their clothing and possessions damaged by sprinkling water. Finding an immediate solution to the problem helps to keep you from needing to relocate guests currently staying on the grounds and allows the business to continue to accept new customers with the appropriate preventative steps to limit the spread of this damage beyond individual rooms.

Our SERVPRO professionals can identify the full scope of the damage that your hotel has sustained from the broken sprinkler system. We have licensed contractors among our franchise that can offer lasting solutions to our customers from rebuilding damaged structural elements to repairing the broken sprinkler system to bring your fire suppression system back to full functionality.

Removing the water from the affected areas is a task that our mitigation team first dispatched to your business takes great care in accomplishing. With our leading equipment designed to extract water fast, our crew can quickly move to drying efforts in the building. Thoroughly removing the moisture from materials is critical to prevent the possibility of threatening effects like mold growth.

With substantial water loss incidents, many structural elements and other items become vulnerable to unsalvageable damage. Let our SERVPRO of Casa Grande rapid response team offer a comprehensive solution from repairs to restoration that gets your facility back to full functionality faster.

What Few People Know About Drying Crucial Papers in Maricopa After a Flood

12/6/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage What Few People Know About Drying Crucial Papers in Maricopa After a Flood When important documents get wet during flooding or water damage, there are options to restore them. Contact team SERVPRO to discuss.

Helping You Protect Your Documents From Flood Damage in Maricopa

Washing your driver's license in the washing machine is a common occurrence, but can still cause panic for many people in Maricopa. Other documents do not fare as well as the laminated licenses. Stock certificates, deeds to houses and other real estate, wills, historical items detailing past events in your family, and many others do not have the protection of lamination.
 
When it becomes safe enough to re-enter your house after a disastrous flood, keep in mind that flood damage in Maricopa can affect your more fragile items, also. Carefully handling these items can diminish the chances of tearing them. Place them inside a plastic bag so that you can freeze them. Freezing stops the damage from continuing.
 
We can use a process called lyophilization, which strips the water and any absorbed moisture from your documents. We can also treat books and magazines this way and save them from destruction. The process is not perfect and existing damage, including bleeding, does not go away during the restoration. However, the final result is always better than leaving things as you find them and hoping for decent results with mere air drying.
 
Drying out documents may not suffice, however, as mud and silt can also cause problems for paperwork and other fragile items. Sand can rub away at the surfaces of papers and cards, removing ink and the high-gloss finishes on papers. Certificates and awards, especially those with seals and ribbons can become rippled and wavy from even slightly elevated water vapor amounts in the air. Photographs and paintings on your walls can become sticky, pick up dust, and develop mold.
 
Finding much more than just your driver's license and other basic identification cards all through your home means getting things dried out quickly can help prevent any such damage. We remove any remaining floodwater and saturated floor coverings. Carpeting, pad, laminate, and other wood composite floors cannot remain inside your home after we start mitigating flood damage.
 
We use Injectidry for its versatility. We can dry out barely-touched walls and save them, or work on wood floors to keep them from buckling and twisting. Each portion of your home that we remove water from becomes that much safer for the documents and other paper-based items that mean so much to you and your family.
 
SERVPRO of Casa Grande understands how important your documents and memorabilia are to you and others in your home. We provide mitigation services to the area around Arizola, Coolidge, and Florence, so please do not hesitate to call us at (520) 421-1894 when flood damage strikes your property.

Why SERVPRO How Broken Pipes in Your Maricopa Home Cause Sweet Dreams to be Turned into Nightmares Leaking pipes can result in a lot of water damage to your home.

Water Damage and the Contents of Your Maricopa Residence from Additional Damage

Waking up to a broken water pipe that has dumped two inches of water into your kitchen in Maricopa can cause an enormous amount of stress. The water continually spews out until the line is shut off, which feels like it takes forever to any panicked homeowner. SERVPRO knows how to bring back peace and calm to your home. 

Residents in the Maricopa area deal with not only water damage in such situations but also an extra-high water bill. To add more problems to the situation, the belongings in your home also sustain damage when coming into contact with the water. Appliances, cookbooks, electronics, and other items need experts who can restore them. A fast response can save your family's possessions from worsening damage while protecting your home from the increasing possibility of a mold infestation. 

Because we are Faster To Any Size Disaster and receive intensive ongoing training, SERVPRO technicians are the specialists you need when water damage happens in your home. We know how to use the extensive array of equipment we carry in our Green Fleet and can get your home's water problem taken care of quickly.

We list each of the items we place in a box, with each box receiving a corresponding inventory sheet. We take these to our facility where we treat the items inside with appropriate restoration methods after removing a box's contents. One team works with the things in each box from start to finish to ensure continuity and increase efficiency. 

Household furnishings splashed with water from the broken pipe might need touch up work to ensure the color loss of fabrics does not occur. We have IICRC-certified specialists who can take care of such situations for you. 

When electronics are affected by water, we work with specialists in the electronics field who can check your items for damage. Turning them on before a qualified inspection can ruin them by powering them on because even small water droplets can create unwanted electrical pathways inside such items.

Are Leaking Appliances Causing Your Florence Kitchen to be a Hot Mess?

11/1/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Are Leaking Appliances Causing Your Florence Kitchen to be a Hot Mess? Water from this dishwasher leak is already being absorbed into the flooring and cabinets. Call SERVPRO to remove the water and restore your home.

SERVPRO Restoring Water Damaged Homes in Florence

Florence residents are relatively safe from the weather and floods, but those are not the main risks to an area home when it comes to ‘squishy’ carpets and other water problems. In our experience, failed appliances and devices like dishwashers and water heaters cause much of the damage to floors, carpets, and furniture.  

For SERVPRO, remediating water damage to Florence homes means getting standing water out of the home, determining what is repairable (or disposing of property too damaged for restoration), and drying the structure and property.  

Our technicians start with either pumps or extraction wands to remove the water while one of our inspectors inspects the property for damage. A failed water heater can drop 60 gallons or more onto the floor in seconds. If it fails to shut-off automatically, the broken tank can continue to spill water throughout the home. Once a team member shuts off the intake line, others use the pump to remove water. In most homes, this takes at least one or two days.  

If the water was a small amount from a dishwasher, then the water level is low and generally isolated to the kitchen. Technicians use the extraction wands to remove water from the surface and then push out any remainder using mops or squeegees. Regardless of the amount of water they remove, team members bring in air movers to direct warm, dry air over the damp floors to speed up the drying process.  

These machines are especially useful to restore carpets to their original condition and prevent delamination. That is the separation of the top and bottom layers of the carpet when it absorbs too much water for too long.  

As technicians remove the water, a SERVPRO inspector examines the property and directs other team members to remove restorable items to an unaffected part of the home or another location. They place the furniture and other items on blocks or bricks so that excess water can drain away. If they can lift property out within a few hours of the water spill, technicians can save almost everything except for paper (i.e., books and magazines). To increase the rate of drying, they can set up air movers and fans to direct warm air and increase air circulation if needed.  

Our goal at SERVPRO of Casa Grande is to remove water and reduce the amount of damage to each home as quickly as possible. If you have had a recent water spill in your home, call us today at (520) 421-1894. We are here for you.

Your Best Guide to Preventing a Mold Infestation in Your Florence Home After Flood Damage

Storm Damage Your Best Guide to Preventing a Mold Infestation in Your Florence Home After Flood Damage Flooding can start with a broken pipe, overflow or come from an outside source. Call SERVPRO immediately to remediate any damage.

How Flooding Can Continually Affect Your Florence Home

Major disasters that affect your Florence home require immediate attention to mitigate losses but can take a long time to restore completely. More to the point, failure to secure professional restoration right away could have you waiting for cleanup and restorative work until taxed crews have the opportunity to begin the initial stages of recovery for your property. While our team works quickly to be available for all potential clients in widespread disasters like flooding, a fast response is always the best way to secure services.

Overcoming flood damages in your Florence home is not something that a homeowner can accomplish on their own. From the immediate threat of the high volume of water to the effects spread throughout the property, experience and industry-leading equipment like our SERVPRO team can provide is the best course of action to take. Flooding is a disaster that continues to get worse the longer its effects persist.

From the moment that flooding occurs throughout your community, you should be aware of the damage that it can do to your property. Starting with the high volume of water, this effect can spread and saturate through construction materials, the contents of your home, and other areas to weaken and erode their integrity to the point of failure.

Even with mitigation practices like extracting the water from the affected areas by our SERVPRO professionals, other effects might have already taken hold. Mold damage is a secondary effect that can commonly follow after water loss incidents, as the persistent dampness and moisture-ridden areas of your property provide the appropriate conditions for mold spores to seat and thrive. Our technicians have the training and equipment to help you recover your flood losses, and to restore your home from all of the effects it has experienced.

Flooding is something that can occur with little warning and affect many homes throughout the communities where you live. Securing professional restoration services with so many affected properties can prove challenging if you do not act quickly. Give our SERVPRO of Casa Grande emergency response team a call right away at (520) 421-1894.

Mold Remediation Our Crew At SERVPRO Can Help You With Your Mold Damage Emergency In Florence Our SERVPRO mold remediation technicians have the unique training and safety expertise to overcome mold in your home.

Mold Can Grow Unexpectedly in Your Florence Residence

While you might never welcome disasters into your Florence home, at the very least, you can always have a semblance of understanding about the damages that they can cause to your residence and the process to restore these damages. The situations that you have to really worry about how to resolve are the ones that you did not anticipate or prepare for, such as mold growth in specific areas of your house.

Several Florence homeowners are still under the impression that mold damages are nothing that they should worry about, let alone respond immediately over. The truth is the longer that colonies survive and thrive, the wider the array of damage to structural components and the greater risks that you allow for potential health effects for people and pets who occupy your home. Our SERVPRO mold remediation technicians have the unique training and safety expertise to overcome this organism in your home and to restore the damage that it has caused.

One of the troublesome things about mold growth is that some homeowners might not know of its existence until the problem has gotten out of hand. This unexpected presence in your home requires immediate attention and concentrated removal techniques of our SERVPRO technicians. For the removal of the colony itself from materials, often soda blasting and sanding are approaches we use to penetrate deeply enough to remove the entire hyphae.

Additionally, we isolate the affected area of your house to prevent the spread of active spores to other locations around your home. This process requires shutting down air circulation and conditioning appliances until the remediation work completes and the risk of spreading the organism throughout your residence has gotten removed.

Mold growth might not be something that a homeowner gets prepared to find in their house, but one that requires fast reactions to keep it from ruining building materials and the contents of your home. You can depend on our SERVPRO of Casa Grande applied microbial remediation technicians to help you remove the colony efficiently and return your house to the way it used to be. You can reach our emergency response team anytime at (520) 421-1894.

How Our Experts Clean And Restore The Fire Damage To Your Casa Grande

10/2/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage How Our Experts Clean And Restore The Fire Damage To Your Casa Grande The majority of fire damage to Casa Grande homes starts in the kitchen or the garage.

Cleaning And Remediating Fire Damage To Casa Grande Homes

Casa Grande residents are used to the heat. It is a part of living in Arizona that many residents not only adapt to but even come to appreciate after several years here. No one, however, appreciates heat when it comes with flames and smoke that pours out of their home.

The majority of fire damage to Casa Grande homes starts in the kitchen or the garage. Each location has its difficulties when it comes to cleaning smoke residues or disposing of property too damaged for repair. SERVPRO response teams can remediate damage effects from either location and for the rest of the home.

In a kitchen fire, there are a large variety of materials that can catch fire and put out a tremendous amount of smoke. If the fire burns slowly, these residues stay primarily in the kitchen or spread throughout the home when it burns faster. Cleaning kitchen smoke residues, especially from burning meat are especially difficult.

Our technicians begin by wiping down every surface in the kitchen with a sponge and water or a cleaning agent. This initial cleaning provides more information about the type of residues present and how thick they might be. For hard surfaces like marble countertops or metal appliances, SERVPRO team members use the strongest cleaning chemical available since the surfaces resist pitting from the cleaners and residues both.

With other surfaces, the smoke residues can penetrate much deeper. Linoleum floors and plastic cases on appliances like coffee makers expand with the heat, allowing the residues and smoke odors to get much further. For fires that burned over a longer period, these surfaces can even form bubbles and warp from the heat. If this happens, team members dispose of the property as quickly as the homeowner allows.

Garage fires can burn faster than kitchen fires since there are often more flammable chemicals termed accelerants. There are fewer residues from the smoke, but the physical damage is usually much worse as heat and flames burn, crack, and split exposed framing and other structural supports. With these fires, one of our inspectors examines everything the flames got close to and determines if the structural items can be cleaned and restored.

If they cannot, our teams can remove and replace wall framing and minor supports. For large beams or the structure of a load bearing wall, team leaders always recommend bringing in a licensed contractor to makes repairs.

At SERVPRO of Casa Grande, it is our privilege to help return our neighbors to their homes after a fire. If you need us, call (520) 421-1894 today to schedule a visit.

Why Effective Water Damage Restoration is Crucial to Your Maricopa Business

9/23/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Why Effective Water Damage Restoration is Crucial to Your Maricopa Business One call to SERVPRO after a water damage incident in your store can quickly get the water removal process started. Call right away.

Water Removal Services for Your Maricopa Grocery Store

People shop at your Maricopa grocery store every single day. From last-minute dinner purchases to substantial lists spanning weeks, you strive to have what every person needs as they might need it. While the normal upkeep can sometimes be challenging for a larger building like this with so much stock and moving parts, it can prove even more troublesome when you become threatened with an unexpected water loss incident.

It stands to reason that when you have a water emergency, you already understand the immediate focus on water removal for your Maricopa store. What many business owners fail to appreciate in these circumstances is the wide array of damages and how quickly the water can spread throughout the area and into materials to pose significant threats to the strength and reliability of these components. This scenario is where professional restoration like our SERVPRO team can provide is essential for your business.

We have a dedicated team of individuals that can respond quickly and work to pull the water up from the affected areas to prevent continual destruction. Our initial assessment of the situation can determine what equipment is necessary, though often our technicians utilize tools like portable pumps to extract the pooling water and to prepare this area for the needed drying efforts to follow.

Drying the area is especially critical, and extends well beyond the damage that you can see. Water penetrates into flooring and walls, allowing for persistent moisture and dampness to affect your building long after you believe the mess to be cleaned up. Our SERVPRO professionals work to ensure that all of the moisture gets removed and the area is no longer at risk for continued damages.

While many depend on your grocery store for the food items that they need to survive, sometimes emergencies occur which can threaten your ability to offer this service to your customers. Our SERVPRO of Casa Grande rapid response team can show up quickly and help to reduce the spread of this incident to prevent you having to shut down the store throughout restoration, or greatly reduce the time that you need to do so. Give us a call 24/7 at (520) 421-1894.

Forgotten Tubs and Other Mishaps with Running Water Require Water Removal Services in Florence

9/16/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Forgotten Tubs and Other Mishaps with Running Water Require Water Removal Services in Florence If you step away and find that your bathtub has overflowed and caused water damage in your bathroom, contact SERVPRO for water removal services.

SERVPRO Technicians are Standing by Should an Accident Requiring the Need for Water Remediation Occur in Your Home

Many bathtubs get filled every day in Florence area homes without any problem, but an unexpected phone call or an accident with a toddler can cause anyone to forget about a tub. Even a slowly running garden hose can send gallons of water into your home if someone places it too close to an open doorway.

When such incidents happen in your home, SERVPRO gets right to business with water removal strategies in Florence that address your home's unique needs. We act fast to prevent secondary water damage like mold and odor development from damaging your residence and to help keep restoration costs for your property as low as possible. Our scaled services include large-volume pumps mounted on trucks as well as much smaller units that extract water from smaller catastrophes.
 
Because water can quickly and quietly seep into areas you might not be aware of, we use moisture meters that detect the existence of water. SERVPRO technicians ensure that after all our work, your home shows no signs of undesired water, restoring everything “Like it never even happened.” We continue to check our progress with new readings throughout our efforts.
 
Water from clean sources typically means we can extract the water from your flooring and successfully dry it out. Steam cleaning helps minimize unpleasant odors from exposure to water, as well as ensure it becomes completely dry again. Sometimes we need to float a carpet while directing air underneath it. When carrying out this procedure, we take extreme care to keep unnecessary stretching to a minimum. Often, however, we need to temporarily remove the carpet if the padding shows signs of wear and tear so new padding installation can take place.
 
Hardwood floors can experience cupping and crowning. While it might tempt you to sand these immediately, doing so can only bring disappointment. Drying out at a steady pace helps bring such flooring back to near-normal. At this time, additional restoration becomes possible.
 
Our goal at SERVPRO of Casa Grande is to help restore your home back to pre-disaster condition. When our water removal services can help, we know how to perform the exact procedures to get things back to normal again. Call us at (520) 421-1894, so we can help you and your family.

Storm Damage Flood Damage In Casa Grande You can count on us to arrive quickly and help you to preserve the contents and structural integrity of your home as we work to clean up the mess.

Flood Damage

Severe weather systems roll through Casa Grande more often than the residents here might like. Even with the better construction of the homes and preventative measures taken to reduce the possibility of storm damages, these occurrences continue. The trouble with damage to areas like the roof of your home, or even the windows, is the ability for water to come into your house unabated.

The result of this flow of water, as many unfortunate Casa Grande residents have seen, is flood damages. There's something to be said for working towards being more prepared for this possibility by taking further preventative measures and safeguarding your home against the possibility of storm damages significant enough to allow for flooding.

One of the ways that you can better prepare your home for the possibility of storm damages is to inspect the integrity of the roof on your house annually. Since this is the first line of defense against torrential rainfall and damaging winds, it is essential to ensure that this structure is sound and able to withstand the often brutal nature of passing systems. Often homeowners neglect the maintenance and care of their roof, and our SERVPRO professionals are helping them to clean up the mess and dry out their homes as a result.

Another thing that you can do to help preserve your home in the event of flood damage is to have a strategy in place for calling professionals like our SERVPRO rapid response team. When flood waters penetrate your home, you want to have the appropriate personnel there quickly to help seal off entry points and to pack out the at-risk items throughout your home so that they do not get affected by the spreading water. Knowing whom to call and when to can save you time and money in the long run.

While it is difficult to prepare yourself for flood damages in your home, knowing what to do can ultimately make the restoration process more efficient and less costly. You can count on our SERVPRO of Casa Grande emergency response team to arrive quickly and help you to preserve the contents and structural integrity of your home as we work to clean up the mess. Give us a call anytime at (520) 421-1894.

Concerns That Might Surprise You After Fire Damages Your Maricopa Home

8/26/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Concerns That Might Surprise You After Fire Damages Your Maricopa Home Fires can start in many places and damage can spread quickly throughout your home. Contact SERVPRO to put our experienced technicians to work for you.

Team SERVPRO Understands the Major Issues Affecting Your Home After a Fire

Common sense seems to dictate that the aftermath of a fire in your Maricopa home primarily presents as burned wood and other structural components followed by an abundance of soot. Although these issues are typical during fire restorations, they are far from the only problems posed by a residential fire. Hiring a full-service restoration company capable of addressing the whole spectrum of damages you might face is critical.

Before the restoration crew turns its focus to soot cleanup and restoration of charred building materials, the first Maricopa fire damage task needing completion for your home is water removal and structural drying. Firefighting can use hundreds or more gallons of water to knock down the flames that otherwise might consume the entirety of a residence. Water damage is as much if not more destructive than the harm caused by fire. Failure to remove standing water and the residual moisture within 24 to 48 hours risks mold damage and progressive deterioration of porous building materials.

The flooding caused by firefighting also creates slip and fall risks and the threat of electrical shock when SERVPRO’s crews are at work. Our management team assesses the danger before beginning the water remediation. Our fully-stocked service vehicles provide portable power generation for pumps and water extractors if the electricity is shut down for safety purposes.

As the water concerns recede, SERVPRO technicians begin investigating the extent of the fire damage. We use IICRC best practices when pairing fire damage cleanup challenges with the appropriate professional remediation products and tools. In addition to crafting a plan to clear away smoke and soot residues, we also evaluate the safety of retaining food found in cabinets, pantries, refrigerators, and freezers.

The heat of the fire can raise the temperature of canned and bottled goods, supporting the growth of hazardous organisms. Soot can be fine enough to work its way into jarred food by moving up the threads under the cap. Bulk and boxed foods are prone to soot, water, or firefighting chemicals tainting their contents. Even if food containers appear unblemished, SERVPRO experts often advise discarding the potentially contaminated food.   

If the power is even temporarily knocked out during the fire, food in refrigerators and freezers are potentially ruined for human consumption. Although the seal might seem tight, soot again often finds its way into these appliances. Consult with the SERVPRO crew to make the smart and safe decision between on retaining the frozen and chilled food or discarding it.

The fire damage suffered by your home and contents can be wide-ranging and impossible for a layperson to assess thoroughly. Contact SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520) 421-1894 for reliable assistance to protect your home’s integrity and the health and safety of you and your family.

Mold Remediation Water Losses in Your Maricopa Home Can Allow for Mold Growth Water and Moisture Lead to Mold Damage in a Maricopa Bathroom that SERVPRO Can Cleanup and Remediate

Mold Remediation by SERVPRO Technicians Can Be the Solution for Maricopa Property Owners

Many Maricopa homeowners are still struggling to keep up with the lingering damages that the recent monsoon season has left throughout the area. High volumes of water inside of homes leaves substantial, costly damages to residences all across the area. Even with the widespread flooding and storm damages, another wave of damages begins just a few short days later.

Many homeowners do not realize that mold spores exist naturally in the environment around you. No matter where you are, from inside of your house to the office space across town, avoiding mold damages to your Maricopa house is understanding how readily available this threat is to seat, colonize, and spread throughout your home.

While you can not see mold spores floating around your house or in the outside world, this microscopic intruder is waiting for the conditions to get met so that it can form into the destructive organism that you might already recognize. Even with the rapid response of our SERVPRO water damage restoration specialists, the area might already have begun the process of colonization. Fortunately, our AMRT applied microbial remediation technicians can clean out the infested area and disinfect to help prevent future fungi patches from appearing.

At the first signs of mold growth in your flood or water damaged home, you need to reach out to our SERVPRO applied microbial remediation technicians. This specialized team is uniquely trained to remove mold colonies safely and quickly using state of the art equipment and modern approaches.

To avoid mold growth and damages in your home, you need to respond and react quickly to signs of water or flood damages in your house. The longer this water can saturate materials and provide a moisture-ridden environment, spores have the time and opportunity to colonize.

Understand that mold growth in your home is something that is often avoidable, and should be a prioritized concern for any homeowner who discovers it on their property. With the potential health effects it can cause along with the widespread structural weakening on affected surfaces and staining, it is essential to take care of this problem as soon as you find it. Give our SERVPRO of Casa Grande headquarters a call any time at (520) 421-1894.

What To Expect From SERVPRO When Water Damages Your Maricopa Hardwood Floors

8/9/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage What To Expect From SERVPRO When Water Damages Your Maricopa Hardwood Floors Water damage affects the building materials of your Maricopa dwelling variously, pending on their propensity to absorb moisture.

What To Expect When Water Damages Your Hardwood Floors

Although it is desert-dry outside your home in Maricopa, many opportunities exist inside for water to intrude where it is not expected or wanted. A water heater past its prime rusts through the bottom and pours water into a lower-level family room, a shower curtain tucked outside the tub sends water across the bathroom floor and down the hall, or a broken water pump in a dishwasher floods the kitchen and dining area. Our fast response halts the damage.

Water damage affects the building materials of your Maricopa dwelling variously, pending on their propensity to absorb moisture. Your home might feature hardwood flooring. It is a generally durable surface of great beauty, and also provides a surface for area rugs and carpeting to rest. When you wipe up spills quickly, the wood suffers no harm. In scenarios where water floods over the surface or puddles up and remains on the finish for a time material does absorb moisture. Wood swells when persistently wet, which eventually results in a range of damage that can become permanent -- buckling, warping, cupping, and crowning. We have strategies and equipment that removes the moisture and prepares the floors for restoration.

When our SERVPRO crew arrives at your home, expect a complete assessment of the damage done and a detailed plan leading to a return to preloss condition. If the water covering the hardwood floors is two inches or deeper, we use pumps and then move on to extractors to remove any quantity of water. Our team takes baseline moisture readings as it is not recommended to sand or refinish wood floors until the internal moisture level is 12 percent; even with applied drying techniques, this may take days or weeks.

Hardwood floors have a subfloor beneath, and it is crucial that the materials of the underlying support dry out as well. SERVPRO crews employ a range of methods to remove the moisture. We use drying mats that concentrate the efficiency of extraction, using pressurized air movement to draw out moisture from all levels of the flooring. If the subfloor is accessible from below, we position air movers underneath to speed evaporation. In some cases, we might remove or lift some planks to get air movement where needed or drill holes in heavily sealed flooring to allow for the water vapor to escape.

SERVPRO of Casa Grande awaits your call for help with IICRC trained technicians and cutting-edge water mitigation equipment. Contact us at (520) 421-1894 as soon as practicable after a water emergency.

When you get the message from a tenant about water damage, give us a call.
 
Leaks and spills not brought to your attention quickly become problems of a higher magnitude in your Maricopa rental units, especially if the water damage migrates into other renters’ spaces. Working with our water damage mitigation crew is a great solution when several areas can need water removal and drying. As you already are behind the times if your tenant waited too long or did not realize the harm was severe, a team approach is precisely what is needed to take care of a variety of concerns quickly.
 
SERVPRO’s commercial water technicians offer assistance focused on your particular scenario, whether a relatively inconsequential accident or a significant water loss involving multiple floors and apartments. Our employees are ready immediately after arrival to unload the appropriate equipment and get the project rolling. Our crew lead assesses the need and ranks tasks in conformance with the best restoration industry practices.
 
If standing water is an issue, we employ submersible pumps to remove more than 2 inches of water. Our service vehicles have a full component of wanded water extractors we use to get the moisture out of crevices and hidden recesses as well as carpeting. SERVPRO has success removing water with carpeting in place, although we often pull the padding as it is inexpensive and easy enough to replace.
 
Our investigation is thorough and informs us where water migrated, essential if other units are at risk. Once water removal completes, we move on to drying all affected areas. SERVPRO employees measure moisture levels to help determine drying goals, concentrating on walls, floors, and other structural components. Drying efficiently requires a balance of heat, air movement, and dehumidification. We position the air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers for maximum effect.

Storm Damage Flood Damage Can Happen in Your Maricopa Home or Condo Trapped on a Maricopa Island after a Flash Flood? Call SERVPRO for Water Extraction and Cleanup

Maricopa Properties Cope Better after Flash-Flooding When SERVPRO Is Called for Cleanup and Restoration

Weather patterns and the predictions that accompany them have become more volatile, exposing those who expect previous seasonal climate averages to continue in Maricopa to unanticipated disaster risks. Researchers at Arizona State University study how predicting the new extremes in weather better prepare our residents and municipalities for “100-year” calamities that now occur every few seasons. If you unexpectedly face the floodgates in your home, we can help.

Monsoon season in Maricopa begins in mid-June and can cause flash flood damage, waters rapidly moving across the Gila River Valley. The same system that swamps roadways and endangers vehicles can intrude into your living areas, saturating foundations and rushing through crawl spaces. Even if your living space is several stories above ground level in a condo, parking and storage areas below risk flooding and resulting damage to your possessions. We are well-qualified and appropriately outfitted to respond immediately to flood damage in any areas of your single or multi-unit home.
 
The water swirling into your home or storage area can contain animal and human waste, particularly if the storm drains in your immediate locale are overwhelmed, and your sewer line backs up. Overland flooding also risks exposing you to landscaping and road chemicals, and even reptiles, insects, or wildlife fleeing the waters. SERVPRO crews prepare for these and other contingencies through Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification training and our extensive experience in the restoration business.
 
A project manager assesses the flood damage upon arrival and coordinates with the crew assigned and you as the homeowner. SERVPRO checks first for safety hazards from broken glass to damaged utility lines that could turn the flood into a fire, and everything in between. Then we set up submersible pumps and move to extractors as the water level falls. If power is out, we carry on using sources on our vehicles to operate the equipment. We might pack out stored possessions exposed to food water for evaluation and drying offsite.
 
If the water is contaminated, our crews proceed informed by our thorough knowledge of local health and hazardous waste disposal codes. SERVPRO contains flooding tainted with pathogens or chemicals and discards it appropriately. When we need access to cavities between walls we can make flood cuts to ensure all moisture releases and saturated areas are open to drying efforts. Air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers reduce moisture to normal levels as we monitor the saturation data with meters and scanning devices. EPA registered antimicrobials treat surfaces to inhibit microbial growth.
 
SERVPRO of Casa Grande is the dependable partner you need when your desert dream home experiences inundation by flash flooding. Call (520) 421-1894 day or night for reliable and expert flood damage restoration services.

How We Work To Overcome Common Fire Damages In Your Maricopa Home

Fire Damage How We Work To Overcome Common Fire Damages In Your Maricopa Home No matter how severe the soot and smoke damage may be, our technicians will work around the clock to restore your home.

SERVPRO Can Help Restore Your Maricopa Home After A Fire Strikes 

While smoke and soot damage are leading complaints regarding the effects from house fires, there are effects that many Maricopa homeowners do not think about as well. Firefighting is critical to avoiding total loss structure fires throughout the area, but this extinguishment effort can often come with lingering acute damage of its own.

Even with smaller and more contained situations, fire damages in your Maricopa home can still vary greatly. From the smoke and soot damages mentioned above to the need for cleanup and renovation, the list of what needs to be done to bring your home back to original conditions can feel extensive. Fortunately, with the help of professional restoration services, you can get to this end goal far more quickly.

Our SERVPRO professionals take some time to assess the farthest reaches of this damage and to determine the equipment necessary to restore your house successfully. Soot damages require concentrated cleaning efforts with everything from wet/dry sponges to high-powered vacuums. This process is intricate, primarily because soot can spread out a considerable distance from the heart of the fire itself.

Smoke damages often present themselves in the form of a harsh lingering odor to face. This effect is one of the final ones to get addressed because there are so many cleaning actions and other efforts that can negate the deodorization effects.

As was mentioned earlier, there are times when the extinguishing efforts can leave damages of their own for our SERVPRO restoration specialists to overcome. Often, this damage is present as pooled water throughout areas where fire hoses were necessary to overcome the growing situation. Our technicians treat these effects as part of the whole, employing water damage recovery techniques to dry out the affected areas.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources

While restoration might not be the first thing that comes to your mind when your home falls victim to a fire, having the right restoration team can make all of the difference in getting your home back to preloss conditions as quickly as possible. Our SERVPRO of Casa Grande fire restoration technicians are standing by for any emergency you might have at (520) 421-1894.

Typical Causes And Effects Of Residential Water Damage In Maricopa

6/30/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Typical Causes And Effects Of Residential Water Damage In Maricopa A residence in Maricopa is most likely to suffer from water damage linked to internal causes, usually unrelated to weather conditions.

Typical Causes And Effects Of Residential Water Damage

Homeowners who live in geographical areas that receive little rain or other precipitation over the seasons can feel immune to water damage concerns. When water damage is covered by media outlets, the focus tends to be how heavy rains or other significant precipitation damage homes.

Although even arid areas of the United States can experience occasional torrential rains, the risk to homes from these seasonal rains is much less serious than other causes of water damage.

A residence in Maricopa is most likely to suffer from water damage linked to internal causes, usually unrelated to weather conditions. Typically residential water incursions stem from one of the following events.

Accidents And Negligence
Water spilling onto the floor because a bathtub or kitchen sink overflowed is a common mistake that can lead to structural damage. All it takes is a distraction while a sink or tub is filling and the water flows and saturates building materials and personal possession. Failing to secure a shower door or curtain sprays water on floors and walls. A robust bath playtime sends waves over the side.

Any of these accidents or neglect can result in water damage not only in the room where the event occurred but also to the levels below the affected space. SERVPRO assesses the extent of the harm and takes the steps necessary to extract standing water and to inspect and dry out the subfloor cavity.

Appliance Malfunction
Metal or plastic fatigue of the latch on the dishwasher allows gallons of soapy, food-filled water to escape into the kitchen. A broken pump or clogged drain causes water to flood the laundry room. A sticky valve on the water dispenser located in the refrigerator door gushes water unexpectedly. Homes are full of water-using conveniences that cause water disasters when they do not operate correctly.

The large quantities of water pooling from these appliances already contain contaminants. The professional water removal technicians at SERVPRO evaluate the risks of this tainted water, containing, collecting, and discarding the overflow in accordance with hazardous waste considerations. Fast action is called for to avoid further microbial growth inside your home.

Leaks And Condensation
Residences have plumbing interwoven in nearly every recess between walls and floors. Tiny leaks or cracks slowly but steadily saturate structural components with moisture. Freezers, refrigerators, and AC or HVAC systems cool in part by condensing water vapor contained in humid air. Coils, hoses, and collection pans should keep this condensation draining but may fail if adequately maintained. Clogs and overfilled pans fail to direct the water appropriately; the excess moisture is instead absorbed by nearby walls, floors, and ceilings.

All of the listed incursion sources cause significant water damage within homes. Some can flood areas, necessitating pumping or extraction of the water. Others do their harm slowly and quietly until a wall crumbles, a floor buckles and warps, or secondary damage such as mold growth signals the problem. Our trained and certified technicians can address these issues, using proven strategies to dry out and then restore damage building materials before the structure deteriorates beyond repair.

If your home suffers from water damage linked to any accident, malfunction, aging or broken infrastructure, or clogs or spills you need the assistance of SERVPRO of Casa Grande. You can rely on our trained and skilled water damage restoration professionals to return your residence to preloss condition. Contact us today at (520) 421-1894.

The SERVPRO Emergency READY Plan and Profile (ERP) allow your business to design a concise and easy to follow disaster plan for us to follow if water damages your hotel.

During the assessment stage, you can expect practical suggestions intended to limit the damage done to the common areas and guest rooms in your facility.
 
The designated SERVPRO employee takes pictures and completes sketches to give any of our disaster teams a solid understanding of the layout and possible problem points if a water damage disaster occurs. You help flesh out the process by completing a personalized Emergency READY Profile on our mobile app. The app leads you through a list that when completed and uploaded give us invaluable information about the way you manage the hotel and the names and contact information for the many other contractors used to build and maintain the hotel.
 
As we build the documents together with our SERVPRO team you designate us as your preferred provider of restoration and disaster recovery services. Submit a list of designated employees or others who can act on your behalf if a water damage emergency occurs when you are unavailable.

Seasonal Monsoons Increase Risk Of Flood Damage In Maricopa

6/5/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Seasonal Monsoons Increase Risk Of Flood Damage In Maricopa Maricopa Monsoon Storm Damage is Mitigated by SERVPRO's Lightning Response

SERVPRO Can Mitigate Storm Damage with a Rapid Response, Experience, Materials, and Equipment

Although our area is usually arid, with 8 or fewer inches of rain typical in a year, flooding from intense rainstorms can strike Maricopa. Heavy rains that flood your home are possible during our monsoon season, ordinarily occurring beginning in July and trailing off in September. Our trained and experienced flood damage specialists await your call if the floods affect your home.
 
When Arizona’s monsoon season arrives, the most common image that comes to mind is a dry wash overflowing into a raging river in a matter of seconds, or streets with several inches of water imperiling vehicle traffic. The same weather patterns cause residential flood damage in Maricopa. Crawl spaces and slab foundations fall prey to the quickly developing bursts of precipitation. If the high winds that often accompany these severe storms damage roofs or send trees crashing into your dwelling, many levels of your home can suffer flooding from the pounding rain. Professional restoration assistance is the key to avoiding permanent harm to your home after the flood.
 
SERVPRO crews begin by stabilizing the structure, boarding, and tarping exterior damage. The anchoring of the coverings is dictated by the composition and shape of the damaged roof. Flat roofs often suffer from these strong winds and rains. A 'shrink-wrap" barrier may also be installed, depending on circumstances. Then our team members begin the process of extracting the flood waters and drying out the building materials and contents. We use submersible pumps when the lingering water measures more than two inches, and complete this part of the process with professional grade wanded extractors.
 
It is particularly important to remove as much water as possible in carpeted areas of a home as the padding and fibers can become the home for microbial activity if not dried out within 24 to 48 hours. SERVPRO employees learn practical techniques in IICRC training, including the use of weighted wands to force as much of the flooding out of the floor coverings. Portions of the carpet may be lifted to permit movers to pass heated air over and under the fibers. Dehumidifiers positioned correctly add to the efficiency of other drying techniques, pulling water vapor out of the air so that the moisture in the carpeting moves into the atmosphere.
 
Moisture meters help SERVPRO monitor the efficacy of the flood water removal and structural drying plan. Merely waiting for the flood water to subside risks progressive damage to structures and belongings. Often we recommend an inventory and pack out of boxes and other flood saturated articles for drying in our production facility. We offer many options to dry out flood-damaged documents, heirlooms, clothing, and furnishings.
 
If the desert defies its usual description and strikes your home with seasonal flooding, SERVPRO of Casa Grande is ready to help. Call us round the clock at (520) 421-1894 to schedule a flood damage assessment and recovery plan.

SERVPRO - Stopping And Cleaning Out Mold Damage In Maricopa

5/21/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation SERVPRO - Stopping And Cleaning Out Mold Damage In Maricopa SERVPRO has a varaity of tools and equipment like this air scrubber to remove mold damage from your home.

At the first sign of mold contact SERVPRO to remediate the damage

Although we are not in the middle of the desert, Maricopa is still not a city where residents think too much about mold. Most people consider a problem for areas that are hot and damp, not hot and dry. The facts are that inside any home mold can grow when it has enough moisture, food, and the right temperature.

That means to stop mold damage in Maricopa homes, SERVPRO restoration specialists have to find and remove the source of moisture. Mold spores can thrive in a range of 68 to 86 degrees, the range most homes try to maintain year-round. They also feed on nearly everything in a home, to include almost every building material except for iron, steel, and aluminum.

Most mold growths in our area begin with a simple leak. Often, there is a loose pipe connection or a rusting faucet in a wall or a laundry room that is the culprit. Even just a small amount of water can start the problem if enough spores become wet enough to expand and start to grow over the nearest surface, searching for food and more moisture to further grow the colony.

After arriving at each home, SERVPRO technicians perform a visual inspection and use air content meters to find the highest concentration of spores and trace that to its source. Once they find it, our teams have two tasks: stop the leak and clean out the mold.

If the problem is a minor one, like a loose connection or hose on a washing machine, our technicians can fix that. If it is a major issue, such as an entire section of pipe rusting out, the team leader always recommends bringing in a plumber or general contractor to make the repairs.

Once they stop the source of moisture, our specialists spray the affected property with an anti-bacterial agent. It kills any active spores, and then the team members wipe down every surface or use a vacuum with a specially designed HEPA filter to capture them. If the mold had time to grow into a surface like wood paneling, the team carefully removes it for disposal. They dispose of all mold outside the home and according to Arizona state requirements.

Removing the effects of mold in any home is not easy, but SERVPRO of Casa Grande works diligently to make it as easy on a homeowner as possible. If you have or suspect this problem is in your home, call us today at (520) 421-1894 to schedule a visit and inspection. We are here for you.

Fires are something that no Maricopa homeowner wants ever to have to deal with, but the unfortunate truth is that many residences in the area experience a fire to some degree every year.

This assurance relies heavily on your communication with both the technicians working in your home and the project manager overseeing the work to relay the issues that hinder living in your house.

Water Damage In Your Casa Grande Kitchen

5/4/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Water Damage In Your Casa Grande Kitchen Casa Grande Homeowners Call SERVPRO for Water Damage Cleanup and Restoration

Rely on SERVPRO for Fast Water Removal to Mitigate Damages

The kitchen is one of the most common places to experience water damage in your Casa Grande home. When the water splashes, overflows, or leaks instead of remaining contained, you face the risk of water damage to the structure of the kitchen. Our trained crews have the experience and the equipment to help recover from common kitchen spills, leaks, and overflows.

Many cooking and cleaning tasks occur in your Casa Grande kitchen, some leading to water damage. As these activities proceed, water flows steadily. The pipes and connections that link the kitchen sink, dishwasher, ice maker, and refrigerator water dispenser can develop cracks and weak spots that seep or drip under counters and between walls. The dishwasher can overflow, and the garbage disposal can clog and send water and debris spraying. Water supply lines are under pressure and can spray significant volumes of water. Our technicians receive ongoing training to hone their skills to identify sources of water leakage and incursion.
 
Once the water damage issues are evaluated, SERVPRO water damage remediation crews employ industry best practices and specialized equipment to clean up the excess water and any contaminants that may be present. If more than a couple of inches of water puddle on the floor, we use pumps to remove the water. Lesser amounts receive a wet vacuum treatment from our high-efficiency water extractors with special wands. Our employees use moisture meters and infrared scanning devices to measure the saturation level of affected structures and to located any hidden pockets of water. For example, water can move below the raised floor of a cabinet, requiring us to remove the kick plate to access and extract it.
 
SERVPRO crew members determine the level of contamination contained in the water collected and dispose of it in accord with local hazardous waste regulations. Appropriate cleaning and EPA registered disinfectant products treat the surfaces previously covered with the wastewater. We recommend that our customers arrange for repair of any leaks or loose plumbing connections. Then we begin the process of drying out the cabinets, walls, and floors in the kitchen.
 
We use air movers, dehumidifiers, and sometimes heat to achieve the correct balance while the drying proceeds. SERVPRO technicians certified in Applied Structural Drying determine a drying goal and then remeasure moisture levels throughout the restoration to reach it. Our technicians inspect the areas below the kitchen during the drying to ensure all saturated structures are included in the plan.
 
Your kitchen is where friends and family gather, comprising the heart of most dwellings. SERVPRO of Casa Grande is ready to remove water and then dry and restore structures damaged in your kitchen quickly and professionally. "Like it never even happened." Call us at (520) 421-1894 to schedule an assessment of your kitchen water damage needs.

Commercial Carpet Cleaning

3/25/2015 (Permalink)

Our carpet cleaning services are not limited to residental properties only. Your local SERVPRO of Casa Grande is fully equipped to handle any carpet cleaning contract.

As you are probably aware, a first impression means a lot. This is especially true when you are in the hotel & motel business. Typically, the foyer, front desk, and waiting area in a hotel are heavy traffic areas and the carpet tends to get dirty very quickly. Not only can this mean a loss of business for some of your more particular clients, but more importantly it can mean a bad review on important websites like Yelp. This is especially important for hotels because families and business people use the internet when researching a place to stay when they are traveling. In many cases these review sites, are found in popular search engines before the hotel's contact page.

SERVPRO offers special commercial carpet cleaning rates per square foot. These special rates tend to be about 25%-30% less than residential carpet cleaning rates. Free estimates are always provided by a trained IICRC professional. So, if you are unhappy with your current carpet cleaner or just looking to get a more reasonable rate, call SERVPRO today! Let us help you get that 5 star review!
