Noticing Musty Odors in your Arizona Home? You might need Mold Damage Remediation.

Mold Damage Arizona

The presence of musty odors in your home may be a sign of mold growth. These microbial fungi can affect indoor air quality, spread quickly, and damage the building materials of your home. Typically, mold infestations feed on porous materials like drywall, insulation, and sheetrock but can take root in almost any of the home providing the conditions are right. Usually, we find that mold growth occurs in areas of the home that have regular exposure to moisture. These areas may include wetrooms like bathrooms, showers or kitchens, and areas of the home that lack quality insulation. Attics, crawlspaces, basements, and garages can be particularly vulnerable to microbial growth. These areas frequently have a lack of insulation and more exposure to outdoor elements, which can lead to condensation issues that provide the moisture microbes need to grow.

Rectifying mold damage in your Arizona home may require both construction and remediation expertise. When molds are in the presence of moisture, they can proliferate rapidly and often without a consistent light source. Since the light does not inhibit the growth of mold, it can often reside inside walls, lofts, or beneath your floor. SERVPRO technicians may need to remove physical barriers temporarily to assess and remove the affected materials.

The general principle of any mold removal is to remove areas where the infestation has taken root to protect the unaffected area. This technique may involve SERVPRO technicians performing controlled demolitions in the home. Controlled demolitions can lead to mold spores- the reproductive element of mold- to become airborne and spread throughout the home. We combat airborne spores by using a large negative air pressure machine in the affected area to prevent spreading. Sometimes it may be necessary to use plastic sheeting as well.

There is a high risk of cross-contamination when dealing with mold damage issues. Spores are microscopic and can travel on air, clothing or materials. Failure to contain spores can cause mold to return shortly after remediation. We can deploy air-scrubbing equipment to filter your indoor air and ensure that the removal of mold spores from the affected area is complete.

If you suspect mold issues in your home, seek out professional help. Contact SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520)- 421-1894 now.

Many people have these same characteristics and still find themselves in the middle of a fire damage crisis inside of their own homes. 

The truth is that there are many potential causes of fire damage in your Arizona City home, and some of them are not as obvious as something like a candle. For example, an electrical malfunction can have a fire breaking out in your home in mere minutes, no matter how careful you are. There are many situations where a fire, which is entirely out of your control, could blaze to life.

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

Get Rapid Response Water Removal in Arizona City

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

If a plumbing issue results in the need for water removal in your Arizona City home, certified SERVPRO technicians are available to answer your call and mitigate problems fast. This highly experienced team offers tried-and-true techniques combined with cutting-edge technologies. Your local SERVPRO also has contractor licenses for both general (#310262) and residential (#310261) applications. If your home requires further repair after disaster cleanup has occurred, you can count on this team to get the job done right for you.

A Team That is Always Available

No matter what type of disaster you experience, SERVPRO technicians are available all across the United States and Canada at a whopping 1700 locations. These technicians provide emergency cleaning, remediation, and restoration services 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, including all holidays. Response to disaster calls are immediate, and technicians work around the clock to ensure that homeowners can go back to business as usual.

How SERVPRO Can Restore Your Home

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

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

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

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

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

12/11/2019 (Permalink)

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

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

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

Hazard Recognition

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

Communicating To Others in the Area

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

Initiating Control

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

Documenting the Hazard

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

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

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."

Our Crew At SERVPRO Can Save Your Casa Grande Property

Call (520) 421-1894 to see that We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

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.

Ways You Can Prevent Water Damage in Your Casa Grande Home

Regularly cleaning rain gutters is a way to protect your home from water damage.

Why SERVPRO is Your Best Option for Water Removal in Casa Grande

Keeping your home in Casa Grande safe from water damage is essential for the integrity of your home, and it is relatively easy to do. There are several things you can regularly do that can help prevent water damage emergencies. However, if you have experienced an issue, you need the help of a professional water damage remediation company.  

Water damage in Casa Grande can suddenly cause a structure to become wet and unsafe. It is vital that you immediately reach out to SERVPRO Franchise professionals for water removal services to prevent further damage. We work quickly to help you and your family feel safe again, making it easy to see why SERVPRO is the right choice in situations like this.  

You can do some simple things around your home to prevent a water loss emergency in the first place. Keeping your rain gutters clean and free of debris is a good step. You should also check your downspouts and make sure to direct them five to ten feet away from your home. If it is not already, your yard should be sloped so that water flows away from your home instead of into it. Ensuring that any landscaping flows water away from your structure is also essential.  

No matter what happened, SERVPRO techs can dry your home out for you. Air movers and dehumidifiers assist the drying process once we have removed any standing water. These devices are monitored daily and rotated around the affected area to ensure that we get the fastest drying time and avoid additional damage such as mold growth.  

If you have a sump pump, check it to make sure it is working and test it at least once a year. Having a backup one in case the first one fails is never a bad idea, either. If you do not own a sump pump, you might want to think about purchasing one.  

Regularly check for leaky pipes, making sure to check under cabinets and sinks.  Finding small leaks is an essential step in keeping them from turning into significant problems.  Also keep an eye on your ceilings and attic for any wet spots, as this is a clear indication of water damage. Inspect your roof regularly for any possible signs of damage or missing shingles where water could enter into your home.  

SERVPRO of Casa Grande is always ready to help you restore your home in Coolidge, Eloy, or Florence from water damage. Give us a call at (520) 421-1894 anytime you need, so we can assist you in getting your home back to its usual dry, safe condition.

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.

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.

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.

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.

How Broken Pipes in Your Maricopa Home Cause Sweet Dreams to be Turned into Nightmares

11/27/2018 (Permalink)

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 start with one team extracting all of the water while other teams box up water-logged belongings. 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. 

SERVPRO of Casa Grande is always ready to send qualified technicians to your home in Sacaton, Eloy, or Arizola to rectify water damage issues before they worsen. Call us at (520) 421-1894 to start protecting your home and your belongings. When water pipes burst, you need a team with experience and the skills that make a difference.
