Removing Foul Odors After Coolidge House fires

There are many strategies that our SERVPRO team can employ to address foul odors that exist after a fire in a Coolidge home. Despite how quickly these odors can travel throughout the property, addressing the concerns always falls on the cutting-edge technology available to our professionals. The look of your property after a fire might be overwhelming, so taking care of pressing considerations like the smoke odors can make the damage easier to manage.

Choosing among the modern deodorization options involves several considerations beyond the severity of fire damage in Coolidge properties. Even before considering the options that exist, it might be beneficial for customers to understand the criteria for choosing one deodorization practice over another. These include:

    •    The concentration of smoke and other foul odors in the residence
    •    How widespread and far-reaching odors have become
    •    Inaccessible areas with odor concerns
    •    If relocation of the property’s occupants is necessary
    •    Materials affected by the odor

Hydroxyl Machines
Versatile tools that neutralize foul odors and volatile organic compounds in the house using radicals produced through a chemical reaction of ultraviolet rays, oxygen, and water. This cleaning process can affect a broad area.

Ozone Generators
There are portable units that can get used in the house, but ozone usually gets used most directly with items taken to the SERVPRO warehouse for cleaning and deodorization. We have an ozone chamber there to address entire roomfuls of belongings.

Thermal / ULV Foggers
Foggers are versatile machines that outdate several of the modern approaches getting used. These devices are very mobile and versatile, making them easy to transport from one area to another to deodorize an entire house. Foggers do not have an extensive range, however, so they must get moved manually to all of the areas where they might be necessary.

There are many deodorization tools that our SERVPRO of Casa Grande team uses to improve the smell of your home after a fire loss incident. No matter how severe or widespread these effects might become, we have a tool or a technique that can help. Give us a call anything that you need us at (520) 421-1894.

DIY Cleanup is Never Enough When Your Florence Home Suffers Fire Damage

Many homeowners think that they can embark on a do-it-yourself cleanup job after suffering from fire damage if the fallout seems to be minimal. However, even without a lot of visible smoke damage or charring, taking the DIY path is not the best idea. Only working with professionals for fire damage mitigation gets you the results you need.

Fire damage in Florence calls for special care so that no area is left to chance. With a DIY cleanup, there may still be issues present like lingering odors or potential mold growth. Calling the skilled technicians at SERVPRO gives you a fighting chance you need to get your house back to normal, and “Like it never even happened.”

The Dangers of Lingering Moisture
Mold spores already reside indoors remaining inert until germination conditions occur. Post-fire, the interior of your home is soaked as flames get extinguished. If all of the water is not thoroughly extracted and moisture eliminated, mold spores begin to spread in as little as 24-hours. Our skilled SERVPRO technicians scope the area with infrared technology to see if moisture has migrated under flooring and behind walls. This is done to ensure all moisture gets eradicated before antimicrobials get applied to help inhibit the growth of mold.

Foul Odors Are Tough to Eliminate on Your Own
Soot and smoke particles range in size, with many being invisible to the naked eye. Once these particles become airborne, they spread and leave behind lingering foul odors. Smoke residue penetrates carpeting, upholstered furnishings, and other porous surfaces, calling for a multilayered approach to eliminate odors. SERVPRO technicians employ the use of thermal fogging technology and air scrubbers to thoroughly clean the interior, ridding your home of residual smoke odors.

Never let damage and foul odors linger from a DIY fire damage cleanup. SERVPRO of Casa Grande is available 24-hours a day, seven days a week to address your cleanup and restoration needs. Get in touch with us by calling (520) 421-1894, and we can send out a team of skilled technicians to get started as soon as possible.

Water Damage in Coolidge Bathroom So Bad It Needs Controlled Demo

2/14/2020 (Permalink)

Toilet Overflow No matter when you call, we are always available to assist you!

SERVPRO Teams Handle Every Aspect of The Job After Water Damage Occurs In Your Coolidge Home

One of the worst forms of water damage to a house involves sewage. When this type of water loss event occurs, the ability to restore both contents and structure may have limits due to the contaminated nature of the water. 

Water damage in a Coolidge bathroom caused by a blockage in a toilet that lead to a toilet overflow that affected most of the bathroom floor and the adjoining hallway. The category three blackwater quickly seeped under the tile floor and the bathroom cabinet. 

Water Migration Location

SERVPRO technicians use their moisture detection equipment to determine areas where the water went. Particularly in the case of water containing sewage, it is vital to extract and clean all areas affected by this type of water loss for health reasons. 

Safety During Water Extraction 

It is standard for the technicians to wear personal protective gear, so they do not come into contact nor aspirate the water during mitigation. They also often treat the water with antimicrobial cleaners to lessen the contamination.  

Controlled Demolition

Few building materials have the potential for restorability after exposure to sewage-tainted water. SERVPRO technicians removed the tile flooring to open up the subfloor for drying. The toe kick under the bathroom cabinet and the baseboards all required removal for extraction and drying. Much of the sheetrock moisture and the techs measured several inches above the waterline and cut the damaged sheetrock away. 

Drying and Deodorizing

When sewage is present in a home, it is unmistakable. Drying equipment to push moisture out of the subfloor and wall cavities is crucial as a part of the restoration process. Then a wipedown with potent antimicrobial and deodorizing cleaning agents helps kill any resident bacteria as well as eradicate odors. Air scrubbers assist in capturing airborne particulate that may contribute to odors in the loss area. 

Rebuilding Services Too

Once the techs address the loss, SERVPRO can also offer homeowners reconstruction services with general contractor license #310261 to restore the home to its preloss condition. That way, the process can go straight from cleanup to rebuilding without delay. 

SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520) 421-1894 handles any water damage in properties and uses their equipment and knowledge to make the water loss "Like it never even happened."

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.

Common Steps for Remediation of Commercial Mold Damage in Arizona City Properties

1/28/2020 (Permalink)

Mold on window sill No matter when you make the call, we have technicians who can assist you.

How our SERVPRO Team Handles Mold Damage and Remediation in Arizona City

When signs of commercial mold damage are ignored, the problem continues to get worse until it gets addressed. Once established colonies spread quickly across surfaces. 

SERVPRO techs have extensive training in handling commercial mold damage in Arizona City properties. Scoping is one of the first actions to determine all areas with mold colonies. 

Limiting the Spread of Spores

The techs set up containment and, in some cases, negative air chambers to port airborne mold spores offsite. When mold grows on surfaces such as sheetrock or ceiling tiles, there is no restoration potential, and it requires removal. With their general contractor license #310261, they have the skills and knowledge to perform tear-outs as needed. 

Diagnosing the Reason

When inspecting the property, the techs determine the reason for the establishment for the mold and the appropriate actions that should happen to halt the conditions making the environment favorable for mold growth. Common causes are poor ventilation and leaks in the structure or plumbing system. 

Drying and Proactive Treatments

The first step in the remediation of mold colonies is the drying of areas where the establishment of infestations has occurred. The techs sometimes tent over the space and concentrate the airflow over the colonies. Once the areas dry, the techs use either manual methods such as scraping the remaining dried matter. In cases where the mold proves challenging to lift off, applications such as soda blasting remove the mold effectively without marring surfaces. 

Before rebuilding with new sheetrock and ceiling tiles, SERVPRO technicians coat the framework with their professional-grade antimicrobial cleaners and sealant. This action inhibits the potential for re-establishment of mold from opportunistic spores, which are always present both indoors and outdoors, just waiting for the right conditions to germinate. 

Measures for Air Quality

If necessary, the techs can inspect and clean the ductwork. This gives the property a clean start after the completion of mold remediation. 

SERVPRO of Casa Grande restores properties with commercial mold damage. Certified technicians are available 24/7 at (520) 421-1894 to make it "Like it never even happened."

flood damaged home Whether you can complete these steps on your own or not, our SERVPRO of Casa Grande team can help your property after a flood.

Quick Tips for Arizona City Homeowners After Flooding

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

fire damaged home Speak with SERVPRO of Casa Grande by dialing (520) 421-1894. No matter the time, our techs are ready to help.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

12/11/2019 (Permalink)

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

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

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

Hazard Recognition

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

Communicating To Others in the Area

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

Initiating Control

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

Documenting the Hazard

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

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

Our Water Damage Experts Can Save Your Home In Florence

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

When You Need Water Cleanup in Florence

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ways to Limit Issues After Flood Damage in Arizona City Homes

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

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


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

Create a Flood Action Plan

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

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

DIY Flood Cleanup Often is Inadequate

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

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

Can Sandbags or Temporary Dams Prevent Coolidge Flooding?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Red Sky Sunset in the Desert of Arizona Hey, Fire Damaged Home in Arizona City? Relax, enjoy the sunset and leave the Cleanup and Restoration to SERVPRO

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

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

Lighting the Work Areas

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

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

Cleanup Protocols and Methods

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

Corrosive Residues

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

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

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

10/1/2019 (Permalink)

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

Bigger Is Not Always Better for Coolidge Water Extraction 

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

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

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

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

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

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

10/1/2019 (Permalink)

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

Helpful Steps During Flood Damage Incidents In Arizona City

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

8/12/2019 (Permalink)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We can work quickly to restore your property and make the incident look “Like it never even happened.”

Tips For Restoring Your Arizona City Home After Water Damage

A water intrusion incident in your Arizona City home can occur unexpectedly. Refrigerator ice maker breaks, plumbing leaks, and failed appliances are some ways that water can bring about issues in your house. Altogether, water loss is a stressful and messy situation. If water finds its way into cabinetry, furniture, walls, and other places, it can be a hidden and visible problem.

If you wait to address the water damage in your Arizona City residence, it can cause further issues. Porous materials like drywall and wallboard can soak up the water and remain contaminated for extended periods. Solid wood items like furniture can crack and warp, and laminated wood can separate or weaken because of exposure to water. You can start the water clean-up process by doing the following things:

•         Wear protective clothing, rubber gloves, and boots to say safe when performing the clean-up work.

•         Remove wall coverings and place them outside to dry.

•         Wipe down wooden items and take them elsewhere to dry if possible.

•         Make a list of the ruined items and take photos or videos.

•         Contact your insurance agent or company and submit a claim.

•         Place wood blocks or aluminum foil between damp flooring and the legs of heavy furniture that is difficult to move.

You should also call SERVPRO restoration specialists to assist you with the process of restoring your house after a water intrusion incident. Our technicians understand the importance of addressing water damage right away. Upon arrival to your home, we can work immediately to minimize the chances of secondary destruction like mold growth occurring while also reducing restoration expenses.

We begin the water removal and drying process after assessing the damage. Our team uses top-of-the-line equipment like industrial strength wet/dry vacuums or portable pumps to remove the water. After extracting the water, we begin the drying process using air moving and dehumidifying equipment to eliminate moisture in the affected areas. We also use specialized testing equipment like moisture sensors to detect moisture in carpeting and padding. Moisture sensors have probes, which penetrate through the carpets and pad to determine if there is water in the subfloor underneath.

Our SERVPRO crew also knows how to manipulate humidity and temperature levels to produce optimal drying conditions without causing secondary damage. Our Applied Structural Drying Technicians (ASDs) use various ventilating systems to direct air into wall cavities, replacing the moist, cold air with warmer, dry air to increase the rate of evaporation. Once everything is dry, our crew can advise you on the reconstruction or repairs required to return your property to its preloss state.

If your home in Casa Grande, Maricopa or Coolidge has water damage, call SERVPRO of Casa Grande to assist you with the restoration process. Our 24-hour emergency response line is (520) 421-1894. We can work quickly to restore your property and make the incident look “Like it never even happened.”

Face Flood Damage in Arizona City with Confidence

Located on Pinal County’s floodplain, Arizona City homeowners face a significant risk of water and contaminants devastating their homes during the monsoon season. Intensive agricultural use of the region around the city complicates the situation by exposing affected properties to runoff mixed with dirt, fertilizers, organic debris, and other residues. Cleanup of this thick and noxious amalgamation requires training, specialized equipment, and experience.

Arizona City flood damage needs a fast response to avoid progressive destruction to structural components and secondary damage like mold growth. Our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-trained managers and technicians prepare for this challenging work, committed to assisting you and your family when you need help the most. We mobilize quickly, arriving at your flooded home with the workforce and the equipment necessary in our signature green service vehicles, avoiding any delay.

Seasoned SERVPRO project managers assess your circumstances and develop a work plan to address your unique scenario. Our employees categorize the water involved, typically determining that it meets the criteria for Category 3 or Black Water, the most contaminated. When removing the fluid containment is required, and we must follow local rules concerning hazardous waste disposal.

Depending on the extent of dissolved and solid debris in the floodwaters, our employees might use shovels and other mechanical means to remove the mud and sludge. Our pumps and extractors can manage a certain amount of silt in the water we evacuate as well. Expect the SERVPRO team to don personal protective equipment (PPE) because of the potential for human and animal waste in the mix, exposing individuals to the risks of blood, urine, and feces-borne pathogens. Once the bulk of the water is gone, we use equipment like thermal imaging cameras and meters to locate residual water and moisture.

If we need access to trapped water, flood cuts are a controlled demolition strategy that also opens cavities for enhanced structural drying. Our crew cleans and disinfects surfaces with EPA-registered products and develops and implements a drying plan. After moisture levels return to normal, we can complete the restoration with rebuilding services for any structural damage and to replace any building materials removed to improve the flood water remediation.

Call (520) 421-1894 as soon as possible after the storm so we can mitigate, remediate, and restore the harm done. Trust SERVPRO of Casa Grande to get it right from start to finish as we make monsoon flood damage “Like it never even happened.”

Performing Major Scale Fire Damage Work In Arizona City

Major property fires do happen. Fires that burn at high temperatures and remain undetected for any period can quickly result in structural damages which could mean temporary relocation as general contractors and remodelers work toward restoring the property. Although the majority of restoration services we provide are geared toward minor or medium scale fires, we have the workforce and resources to handle any size disaster.

A home with major fire damage in Arizona City may be deemed unsafe to inhabit. However, before general contractors can move in to perform necessary structural repair, there must be work carried out to ensure that the property is safe and empty of debris, charring, and personal contents. SERVPRO offers a move-out service for residents that have been temporarily relocated and can move your contents to another location to allow reconstruction work to begin.

The role of a restorer in dealing with significant damages involves several vital tasks. Creating an inventory of all contents, including the condition of each content before packing and unpacking at an external storage location, is vital. SERVPRO use dampeners, and stabilizing ropes to ensure valuable furniture is safe during transport. If lots of water was used during firefighting procedure, it might be necessary to test humidity levels of particular furniture, upholstery or valuables and dry them onsite before transportation.

Even after contents have been inventoried and moved to an external storage facility, there is still work to do for a SERVPRO restorer. Preparing a site for remodelers or contractors is an essential task so removing debris, checking for the structural safety of floors or ceilings and bringing in temporary electricity generators can all be part of the job of preparing a site. Your technician may also be able to mitigate losses by performing emergency drying or cleaning tasks on part or all of the property. These tasks can help to reduce the chance of permanent damages occurring over time.

For major property restoration services, contact SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520) 421-1894 today.

What Else Can You Do With Water Damage in Your Maricopa Home

6/28/2019 (Permalink)

An overflowing sink can cause serious water damage in your Maricopa residence. Contact SERVPRO for help.

Why Professional-Level Drying is Crucial Against Maricopa Water Damage

Water damage brings many types of issues to a residence. Whether it is from a surprise supply line leak, water line to the fridge or pipe under the bathroom vanity gave out, it needs to be cleaned up and dried as fast as feasibly possible. 

When there is water damage in a Maricopa residence, professional water removal by SERVPRO avoids secondary losses. In most cases, for minimal water spills, homeowners can generally self-clean without further issues. After mopping or using rags to clean up water, use one or more fans to dry the area. Be watchful for signs of incomplete drying such as foul odors or less frequent, mold. 

Water follows the path of least resistance and migrates quickly. For example, a simple pipe break under a bathroom sink can lead to several problems if not properly cleaned and dried. Cleaning up the water you can see by mopping may not be enough. However, there is the potential for excessive moisture behind baseboards, under cabinet, subflooring, and floor joists. The softening of building materials, foul odors, and other damages can occur if inadequately mitigated. 

SERVPRO technicians complete training that includes certification in water removal. We have the equipment to find and extract deeply embedded moisture and use our knowledge of psychrometry to dry both surfaces and interior room components thoroughly. Fortunately, the average year-round humidity for this area of Arizona ranges from 38% to 48% which naturally inhibits mold growth due to lack of moisture but in the case of inadequate ventilation retaining moisture or a slow leak, there is the potential for colony growth.

In cases of severe water damage, the best outcome SERVPRO technicians can prove for homeowners is getting the property ready for reconstruction after the cleanup and drying of the affected areas. Our location has a residential contractor license # 310261, and we can make the water loss situation seamless for homeowners from cleanup to rebuilding. 

SERVPRO of Casa Grande is ready to assist homeowners with water damage any time. Just call (520) 421-1894 and our emergency response team can be onsite within hours to make your water loss "Like it never even happened."

We Can Help When Your Hardware Store Experiences Water Damage!

6/16/2019 (Permalink)

Don’t let water damage be your new sales item. Hardware store.

Let SERVPRO get your business back to brand new.

Water and hardware typically don't mix very well. Metal and wood components in your hardware store can be easily ruined by water damage, possibly forcing you to discard large amounts of your stock. Even a small leak can add excess moisture to the air in your store and facilitate mold growth, wood rot, and rust on metal tools and parts.

To avoid invoking the hefty cost of replacing your inventory, it is vital that you contact professionals who can quickly arrive at your store and mitigate damage. Water damage restoration technicians from SERVPRO understand that time is of the essence when it comes to addressing commercial water damage in Maricopa businesses. Once our professional teams arrive on your property, we can begin pumping standing water from your floors with the use of wet vacs and pumps. Most stores typically have vinyl tile attached to subflooring with adhesive. While vinyl is cheaper than real tile, it is less water resistant and can detach from the floor. We can usually dry individual vinyl tiles and reattach them, however, some severely water damaged tiles may have to be discarded and replaced.

We can use moisture meters to gauge whether or not water penetrated below your tile, and we can dry out your subflooring if it is found to be water damaged. This is accomplished with the use of air movers which can efficiently draw moisture from affected surfaces. Our floor restoration process can be done at times best suited for your business hours to minimize disturbances to your employees and customers.

To help prevent the formation of mold, rot, and rust in your store, we can deploy dehumidifiers to suck out excess moisture. Additionally, we can wipe down pieces of merchandise that may have gotten wet.

If your store's inventory is threatened by commercial water damage, then contact SERVPRO of Casa Grande. We are available 24/7 at (520) 421-1894, so get on the phone if you have had a water damage emergency.

The Costs Of Fire Restoration For Your Casa Grande Residence

Emergencies and disasters can be difficult for Casa Grande homeowners to restore and repair on their own, especially when you have no idea where to begin. While many property owners seek to work on restoration and cleanup to save time and money, this rarely works as intended. In most cases, inexperienced homeowners can often make the situation worse, causing the restorative actions to take longer and to ultimately cost more money to complete. When fire loss incidents occur, compromising conditions could make comfortable living impossible for affected families.

With so many layers of effects from situations like fire damage in Casa Grande, homeowners might not realize the best approach to addressing all of these symptoms after first responders and firefighters have left the property. Instead of reaching out to SERVPRO professionals, these frugal individuals work to establish the scope of damage to their property with a full assessment. Without the sophisticated equipment and experience that our team has, however, much of the most destructive of these symptoms after a fire can go unnoticed and unresolved.

By better understanding the cost of restoration, homeowners can appreciate that while it might initially seem steep, there are many moving parts. Administrative work is an often-overlooked component to successful businesses in our industry, and these positions are critical to securing funding for restoration work through your insurance company by working directly with your adjuster to provide the necessary documentation and damage evidence to get your claim approved without delays.

Our SERVPRO team relies on our growing inventory of premier recovery equipment, and some of these tools and machines require special attention and separate delivery and pick up from sites. Instruments like our trailer desiccant dehumidifier can quickly address multiple areas of your property contending with water damage from fire extinguishment with collapsible, quick-connect hoses, but also do not typically roll out from our facility with the Green Fleet.

Every single restoration job varies in price as they all take different time, equipment, personnel, and practices to overcome. Our SERVPRO of Casa Grande team works to make restoration affordable and effective for every customer. Give our skilled crew a call anytime you need us at (520) 421-1894.

Why Professional Remediation is Necessary to Salvage Water Damaged Carpets in Casa Grande

5/15/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Casa Grande is ready and equipped to quickly handle your water loss event.

SERVPRO Solves Water Damage to Carpet in Casa Grande Home

Contrary to what you may have heard, water damage to carpeting does not mean the carpet is automatically a loss. If mitigation begins quickly enough, and it is a clean water (Category One) event, the carpeting may be restorable through our proprietary methods for drying and cleaning. 

SERVPRO was called to a Casa Grande home to clean up and restore water damage affecting the living room carpeting and utility room on the first floor of a house. A seam on a 30-gallon hot water tank had burst and migrated from the utility room to the adjoining living room area.

Fast thinking on the homeowner’s part helped, by calling us so quickly after the initial water loss, cleanup efforts began before the water had a chance to wick into sheetrock, pool behind baseboards or migrate beyond the two rooms. 

We used multiple portable pumps to make several passes over the two rooms. Our technicians extracting water from the living room carpet used weighted extractors to push as much water as possible out of the padding to the surface of the carpeting, so it is picked up by the pump and removed. The more moisture we remove before we move on to the drying phase of restoration, the faster drying happens.

SERVPRO has state-of-the-art detection equipment that is specialized for use to find elevated moisture levels in areas of the home such as subflooring, in wall cavities, floor joists, and other hard-to-clean areas. Our scoping showed that the central area of excess moisture was in the living room. The utility room where the incident began showed no hidden moisture issues.

Our air movers are not fans that blow air on wet rooms to dry them. Air movers blow with such velocity they cause water vapor to rise from within wet objects where our dehumidifiers capture it and port it out of the room. This method works well in tandem with our specialized drying set up for in-place drying, which decreases the chance to delamination of the carpet and less disruption for the homeowner. After drying, the affected areas were cleaned and disinfected to leave the rooms smelling fresh without any residual odors. 

Call SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520) 421-1894 when you need fast assistance for water damage in your home. Our technicians have the equipment and experience to restore your home to its preloss condition and make it “Like it never even happened.”

Our Fast Response Will Restore Your Maricopa Hotel To Pre-Damage Condition

4/30/2019 (Permalink)

A flooding incident can cause widespread damages in your hotel within minutes.

Responding Appropriately To Commercial Flood Damage In Maricopa Hotels

A flooding incident can cause widespread damages in your hotel within minutes by soiling linens, wetting building materials and generally interfering with the normal operations of your establishment. The response you mount immediately after the incident determines the overall impact. We offer professional flood mitigation services in Maricopa to help businesses recover faster.

Commercial flood damage in Maricopa Hotels can happen in different ways including openings in the roof or walls letting in rainwater into the structure. Rising waters from a major flooding event can also push water inside the hotel. Scoping the damage helps establish the source and extent which ensures the response mounted follows the right steps. In addition to visual observation, our SERVPRO technicians use sophisticated equipment such as thermal cameras to check for wet areas especially in concealed sections.

Although most of the damage happens immediately the floodwaters breach into the property; other damages can still happen after the water recedes. Taking steps to prevent secondary damages improves the turnaround time of the mitigation process. Several steps including boarding up the structure and extracting any standing water can help prevent secondary damage. Our SERVPRO technicians use advanced water extraction equipment including truck-mounted water extractors to remove any standing water from your hotel. We also establish safe areas in your hotel and move unaffected contents there to protect them from damage and facilitate restoration.

Flooding incidents leave significant debris comprised of damaged contents from your structure and items from outside the structure swept in by the water. Flooding can also soil your facility by dumping silt and mud. Our SERVPRO technicians work fast to clean up your facility because guests expect sanitary conditions when they seek accommodation. We use pressure washers, multi-surface scrubbing machines and professional detergents to clean soiled areas. We also remove carpets and other porous materials affected by the floodwaters eliminating the risk of contamination after the incident, “Like it never even happened.”

In case a flood affects your hotel business, call SERVPRO of Casa Grande to help you respond appropriately. You can reach us at (520) 421-1894 any day.

Making Your Home Safe Again with Flood Damage Mitigation Methods in Maricopa

When we arrive at a home in Maricopa that needs mitigation and restoration services, we always come with a well-stocked Green Fleet to help us. Inside our vehicles, we carry the microbial agents, tools, equipment, and protective gear we use to perform all our mitigation work.

As we first enter your home, we begin mitigating flood damage in Maricopa as we spray affected surfaces and materials with a powerful disinfectant. Even though we wear personal protective equipment (PPE) during our mitigation, we still want to reduce the number of possible sources of contamination as much as we can throughout your home. This is because it also decreases the risk of cross-contamination.

Our PPE allows us to move easily while still using shovels, buckets, rakes, and other tools to remove the piles of silt and other debris polluting your dwelling. Carpets and padding are some of the most contaminated structures in a home with flood damage. Removing the silt and mud on top of these allows us to remove them more efficiently and get them out of your home. These require new replacements, which can occur after we dry the area sufficiently.

Newly exposed areas, like under the padding, or those that inadvertently become re-exposed to floodwater, require an application of disinfectant spray. Sometimes this occurs after we spray down surfaces with clean water with our power-washing equipment. Our goal of making things “Like it never even happened” and your satisfaction makes us strive for the best results while still at the lowest possible cost.

After we completely remove the solid materials from your house's interior, we can begin with the final wipe downs and then move on to drying your residence. Air movers and desiccant machines help dry the interior, so new materials do not become at risk of water damage or microbial infestation. Getting these materials installed means we get that much closer to getting you and your family back home again.

SERVPRO of Casa Grande can answer your questions about flood damage and how it can affect your home and your family. We are always here to respond to your call, 24/7, year-round, at (520) 421-1894. Our Green Fleet serves those in the Sacaton, Eloy, and Florence areas.

Our Fire Damage Technicians Explain Our Various Cleaning Methods We Will Use In Your Arizona City Home

4/8/2019 (Permalink)

We are available 24/7 for your convenience.

Different Methods Of Cleaning Fire Damage In Arizona City Homes

When there is a fire in your home on a small scale, many homeowners clean the damage themselves and move forward getting life back to normal. This can be a mistake because if smoke residues and soot are not correctly addressed, they can spread throughout the home bringing unpleasant odors with them.

Fire damage in an Arizona City home is a task the technicians at SERVPRO have the experience and equipment to handle whether it is a corner in a room or an entire property. The cleanup starts during the initial phone call, and when our locally-based team arrives, we bring everything we need in our stocked service vans and get to work.

When the fire is localized to a particular area, we concentrate on containing the smoke residue and soot particles and stop them from spreading through foot traffic. Thick plastic barriers are placed over doorways and vents. Sheetrock and building materials that cannot be restored through cleaning are removed. Then we work on identifying the items that can be restored for the homeowner.

The goal of SERVPRO technicians is always to restore rather than replace, and we stay current on the latest advances in the restorative sciences so we can help property owners save more of their contents and home after a fire loss. Cleaning involves more than merely using sponges and wiping. Depending on the type of surface, residue or stain, we have a specialized method to remediate different materials and surfaces. Chemical cleaning is used when our technicians are tackling a residue or stain trapped in upholstery or carpeting. Different chemical combinations are used to specifically address different types of material to be lifted out of fibers.

Some sticky residues are cleaned using a method called lubrication. The technicians coat the residue and make it "slippery" so it releases its grip on fibers and can be wiped with a sponge or vacuumed away. Thick layers of dirt or residue dried and trapped upholstery can be lifted out using mechanical action. It works much like the agitator in a washing machine and breaks up and releases the dried material.

Attention to detail and expertise with restoration methods is what makes SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520) 421-1894 the choice for turning around any size fire damage in your home. We are available 24/7 for your convenience.

Did You Know Air Conditioner Leaks Can Cause Water Damage in Maricopa?

4/4/2019 (Permalink)

Regular AC unit inspections can help lessen the chance of water damage to your home.

How to Handle Water Damage in Your Maricopa Residence Caused by an Air Conditioner Leak

Air conditioning units offer many benefits in homes, including enhancing comfort, preventing electronics from overheating and reducing the risk of heat stroke. However, if these appliances are not maintained properly, they can cause water to leak in a home. If your AC is broken, you might get home to find a puddle around it or a collapsed ceiling. Your air conditioner can leak water inside the house if the condensate drain line is clogged with dirt and debris. In this case, the backup can cause a rupture of the line or leaks.

Water from the condensate drain line may also leak inside your home if the installers did not connect it securely. Vibrations may cause it to come loose, leading to water damage to your Maricopa home. When your air conditioner is leaking, you should act quickly to prevent further damage to your home and expensive repair bills. You should turn the AC system off to stop water flow. You also need to clean the water that’s leaked so that the floors, ceilings, walls, decor, and furniture will not get damaged. If it’s not a lot of water, you can use a wet/dry vacuum cleaner.  

If you are dealing with a small leak, you may have caught the issue early enough to allow the area to dry out or replace some drywall. However, if there is a significant water loss that may lead to things like sagging ceilings and warmed floorboards, it is advisable to contact the professionals at SERVPRO to assist you with restoration.  

SERVPRO technicians have professional equipment that can remove water from your home efficiently. We use equipment like portable wet-vacs and truck mounted extraction units for extreme cases. We also have devices like moisture detectors and hygrometers, which are useful for finding hidden moisture. We can also use infrared cameras to determine if water is trapped behind the walls. Our goal is to dry a property to make the leak appear “Like it never even happened.”  

If your AC has leaked, the technicians at SERVPRO of Casa Grande can come to your aid. We can help you to dry out your home to prevent further problems like mold growth. Call us anytime at (520) 421-1894 to get water damage restoration services in Casa Grande, Maricopa and Arizona City.

Ways You Can Prevent Water Damage in Your Casa Grande Home

3/25/2019 (Permalink)

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.

Don't Panic If Your Veterinarian Clinic In Casa Grande Experiences A Water Damage Disaster, Call The Experts At SERVPRO!

Veterinarian Clinic In Need Of Fast Water Damage Cleanup In Casa Grande

In any health-related industry, whether the focus is people or animals, the facility must be sterile and have a clean appearance to gain the trust of anyone needing services. Water damage can leave visible damage to building materials, unsightly stains and leave a distinctive, unpleasant odor. Secondary issues that can arise include weakening of floors and ceilings and mold.

Commercial water damage to a Casa Grande veterinarian clinic required fast action. A pipe had burst after hours in a wall and drenched a large area of the practice overnight. Early the next morning, employees immediately shut off the water and contacted SERVPRO. Our technicians were on site within four hours to start the water extraction process. Because of the wide area affected by the plumbing failure, truck mounted extraction units were used to remove standing water quickly.

The drywall in front of the pipe was not restorable and removed. Since we were dealing with tiled flooring, the danger for secondary damage is in the grout. If the grout is worn or the seal is compromised, water can seep underneath and cause warping of the subflooring if not properly dried. SERVPRO technicians used digital problems to determine if the subflooring was affected and have the resources to dry under tiled flooring with minimal disruption to the tile. Fortunately, in this instance, it was not necessary.

The facility needed to be dried and disinfected in short order so the practice could get back to business seeing furry patients. Carefully positioned industrial air movers in tandem with dehumidifiers were used to dry the affected areas and lower moisture in the facility. Desks and chairs were placed on raised blocks and dried in place. Once dry, SERVPRO technicians hand-wiped all surfaces with antifungal and antibacterial cleaning solutions to ensure the area was left hygienic and ready for business. Our Odor Control Technicians found no discernable odors upon complete drying for further remediation was not needed, and the clinic could reopen for business.

The faster you handle commercial water damage, the quicker you can get back to running your business as usual. SERVPRO of Casa Grande is available 24/7 to handle any size emergency. Call us anytime at (520) 421-1894 and talk to one of our expert technicians right now.

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.

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.

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. Give us a call anytime at (520) 421-1894.

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.

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.

SERVPRO Provides Top-Notch Drying Equipment to Mitigate Commercial Water Damage to Maricopa Properties.

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.

Water removal is a service that most business owners hope that they never need. 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. You can reach us 24/7 at (520) 421-1894.

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

12/6/2018 (Permalink)

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.

Our team will be there to help and restore when soot & fire damage overwhelms your kitchen.

We Offer Reliable Fire Damage Services In Arizona City

The fire in your kitchen did not cause significant damage, but it did leave a heavy presence of thick smoke inside your home. There are soot and dirt on various surfaces such as the walls, flooring, and windows as well as on soft materials like the curtains and upholstered chairs. We can properly clean your home. Our techs have the experience and training to do the job right.

SERVPRO fire damage restoration services in Arizona City can include removing soot and debris. We use sponges and a cleaning agent or water to clean lighter or ashy residue from surfaces. For hard surfaces such as countertops, the crew may employ dry sponges, a brush, or vacuuming to eliminate smoke and fire residues. In many incidences, the team sprays or wets surfaces and then wipes them down with a cloth or dry sponge. When necessary, our techs can use scraping and scrubbing methods to remove dirt and soot.

There can also be a pungent smell inside the home after a fire that can remain after the cleaning phase. When this occurs, our SERVPRO techs may use air scrubbers, high-velocity axial fans, and industrial-level foggers to force out foul odors and pull in clean air to help remove odors. The team may also employ deodorizing equipment to help purify the air and remove smoky aromas. When needed, we can utilize thermal foggers to eliminate smoke odors inside your home. The machinery we use can remove strong smoke odors fast.

Charred furniture and contents can also contribute to the strong smell of smoke inside the structure. With the homeowner’s permission, our techs can remove and discard those burned items. We also can clean, sanitize and store all contents that we save and keep them in a secure area on or off-site until the team completes the job.

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.

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

11/1/2018 (Permalink)

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

10/28/2018 (Permalink)

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.

Our Crew At SERVPRO Can Help You With Your Mold Damage Emergency In Florence

10/9/2018 (Permalink)

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)

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)

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)

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.

Flood Damage In Casa Grande

9/6/2018 (Permalink)

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)

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.

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 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.

Desiccant Silicone Gel in Dehumidiers Help SERVPRO Dry Out Water Damaged Buildings in Maricopa

Fast Removal of Unwanted Water Can Mitigate Damage--Call SERVPRO

It is hard enough for each of us to keep up with the maintenance and repair of our own home in Maricopa. However, when you are responsible for multiple units in an apartment building, townhouse community, or condominiums, the real struggle can be learning about issues when the damage is still minor and easily fixed. 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.
Do not hesitate to contact SERVPRO of Casa Grande if your rental units experience water damage. Call (520) 421-1894 to schedule a quick assessment and a speedy resolution of the problem.

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

7/6/2018 (Permalink)

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)

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.

Seasonal Monsoons Increase Risk Of Flood Damage In Maricopa

6/5/2018 (Permalink)

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)

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.

Water Damage In Your Casa Grande Kitchen

5/4/2018 (Permalink)

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!
