Thermal sensors and moisture sensors and infrared cameras can help detect hidden pockets of moisture.
 
Any personal belongings that were affected have to be cleaned and sanitized to stop any bacterial and mold growth. Antimicrobial treatments are given to draperies, carpeting, and clothing.

Cleaning and Removing Mold Damage in Uptown Phoenix

2/2/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Cleaning and Removing Mold Damage in Uptown Phoenix If our technicians discover the presence of mold, they will stop all other work until finding its location, making sure to not spread it any further.

Three Reasons to Remove Mold as Quickly as Possible

Mold is not an obvious threat to Uptown Phoenix homes like a flood or fire. Until a resident sees dark splotches on the wall behind their washer or detects that musty odor in the bathroom, mold can spread across homes unimpeded.

When it comes to mold damage in Uptown Phoenix, SERVPRO understands that it has to be stopped and removed as quickly as possible. That is important for many reasons, but three, in particular, stand out for us to restore your home to its original condition.

First, mold slows or stops all other work. Our inspectors often find mold when cleaning up after a fire or flood disaster. We can detect mold through a visual inspection, with an air content meter, or just happen to smell it. Technicians stop work until we find the location of the mold, so we do not accidentally spread it further in the home. As an example, if we find mold spores on pools of standing water, we can still remove it. We simply have to take the time to spray an anti-fungal agent over the water and nearby surfaces to kill any active spores before pumping it out of the home.

Second, mold and related work stoppages raise the cost of repair and restoration. Walls, floors, carpets, and personal property require additional labor, tools, and cleaning agents not needed for other types of damage. Most of it is dry and powdery, so SERVPRO team members can quickly remove it by wiping down surfaces with dry sponges or cloths. If the mold is wet, removal takes much longer.

Third, extensive mold growth can also cause health effects. None of our team members are health experts, so we recommend being cautious until we complete work.

At SERVPRO of Phoenix, our goal is to get you back into your home as soon as we can do it safely. We have restored hundreds of homes after mold and other damage in the last twenty-five years and can do the same for you. Call today at (480) 503-2090 to schedule an inspection.

Severe Storm Damage Can Cause Flooding To Your Phoenix Home

Storm Damage Severe Storm Damage Can Cause Flooding To Your Phoenix Home Water and Wind Storms Can Damage Structures in Phoenix. Get Help from SERVPRO for Cleanup

Trust the Experience of SERVPRO to Mitigate Storm Damages

Your Phoenix home might be one of the last places that you might expect to flood, given that the average rainfall every year is far below the averages for other places around the country. Even with this fact, houses in the area get flooded year after year from storm damages that allow heavy rainfall to access a home quickly. The more severe the weather event, the more significant the water damage that results in the affected area of your home.

Preventative steps can be taken to reduce the risk of these occurrences, such as trimming back trees and cutting off dead limbs, but you cannot avoid the possibility entirely. Your best solution when unfortunate circumstances like these occur to your Phoenix property is to know whom to call to help you restore the damage and get the water extracted quickly to prevent further lasting damage to the structure of your residence.

Our experienced SERVPRO team has seen many storm damage incidents throughout the area and have a simple formula for restoring your home. Our first step is to remove the possibility of more damage occurring by boarding up the hole in your home or tarping over punctured portions of your roof. The process prevents additional water from being able to enter your home allowing the restoration process to continue to deal with the internal issues. Repairs to the damaged portions of your roof, siding or windows can be dealt with when the severe weather subsides, and the restoration process gets completed.

Extraction of the water is paramount to preventing further structural damages, and based on the location of the affected area, our SERVPRO team utilizes either portable pumps or truck-mounted pumps to address this primary concern. Drying efforts typically get achieved with the use of air movers. Infrared scanning is another part of our assessment, to make sure that further water damages are not persisting out of sight.

Flood damages might not seem like a natural threat to your home, but it can and does happen. If your home experiences storm damage that results in flooding, do not hesitate to call SERVPRO of Phoenix. Our experienced emergency response team can be reached 24/7 at (480) 503-2090.

Cleaning And Remediating Fire Damage In Phoenix

1/9/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Cleaning And Remediating Fire Damage In Phoenix At SERVPRO of Phoenix, we do everything possible to reduce the damage to your home from a fire.

Cleaning And Remediating Fire Damage In Phoenix

Phoenix homeowners deal with a problem a week; at least it feels that way sometimes. Usually, it is minor like washing chalk art off the driveway and the side of the house 10 minutes before a backyard party is supposed to begin. Sometimes, the problem is a serious one, like a fire.

Even with fire damage, Phoenix homeowners face a less serious problem than at first glance. Most fires do not destroy a home or result in the need for massive reconstruction. Often, the level of damage requires extensive cleaning. With over 20 years of experience, SERVPRO has categorized the damage into three levels and designed our restoration plan around them.

Minor Damage is the most common level of a fire. Here, there is no structural damage to repair or restore, and only a few walls and ceilings might need repainting. Property loss is usually smaller items like books, delicate clothing, and perhaps small appliances. Smoke and soot residue is the bulk of the cleaning issues, but it is only light to moderate. Our technicians wipe this away with dry sponges and perhaps with a mild cleaning agent.

With Medium Damage, there is still little physical damage to the structure. The odors generated by smoke and soot are stronger in the walls and ceilings, which requires additional labor hours by SERVPRO technicians to deodorize the home. Smoke and soot residues are thicker and require more time and stronger cleaning agents to remove them. More and larger property is written off at this level, to include chairs, mattresses, and other furniture. The home requires extensive repainting throughout, and the finish on wood floors may need replacing.

Major Damage is where we see a structural loss. It is particularly severe near the fire point of origin with the replacement of interior walls a must and often the wall framing behind them as well. If the fire burned long and hot enough, the flames reached the attic or crawlspace. When this happens, there is damage to the roof and the support structure underneath it. Smoke and soot residues cover most if not all of the house which requires more time, cleaning agents, and specialized equipment like foggers to remove the residue and the odors they leave behind as well. Personal property loss is massive at this level.

At SERVPRO of Phoenix, we do everything possible to reduce the damage to your home from a fire. In addition to cleaning and restoration, our office can help you rebuild your home and work with your insurance company, for the full coverage you paid for over all those years. Call us today at (480) 503-2090 for more information or to schedule an appointment.

Accidents happen all the time, but there are many instances in which they can be costly mistakes or take time to repair.

A company is going to have the tools and resources to quickly rectify the damages and get the affected area ready for use.
 
Our experienced and professional SERVPRO team can work quickly from the time that you call to assess the extent of the damage and put together a plan to restore the area. Communication is an active component of the process, helping you to both understand the restoration process as well as listening to your concerns.

Mold Remediation The Best Way To Reduce Mold Damage To Your Phoenix Home Is Early Detection Finding mold damage in your Phoenix home can be quite unsettling.

The Best Way To Reduce Mold Damage

Finding mold damage in your Phoenix home can be quite unsettling. However, one of the greatest ways to minimize the damage is early detection and prompt removal. If you don’t act fast, mold can cause extensive damage to both your property and your health.

Mold damage experts at SERVPRO can help find and tackle mold damage to your Phoenix home before it gets out of hand. Our specialists have years of training and experience to identify and eliminate mold damage safely and efficiently.

The moist and damp atmosphere is most conducive to mold growth. Hence, it is essential that you inspect your home correctly for early signs of mold damage. Here are some of the symptoms that indicate early stages of mold damage.

Moldy Smell
One of the first signs of mold damage is that distinct musty smell that we all know and hate. Even if mold isn't visible, it can have a definite odor that indicates its presence. If your house has a moldy smell, make sure that you call SERVPRO experts to take a look and access the extent of the damage.

Visible Mold
Visible mold growth is quite easy to spot. However, small amounts of mold can get unnoticed or mistaken as dirt or grime. Make sure that you inspect your home correctly for early signs of mold, especially in areas of high moisture content like bathrooms and kitchen.

Water Damage
Water damage is one of the most common reasons for mold growth. If you have had water damage in the past, chances of mold damage can dramatically increase. Make sure that you keep your property dry after water damage and pay close attention to high-risk places such as crawl spaces and attics. Look for signs of mold and act fast as soon as you spot any.

SERVPRO technicians have years of experience and expertise to help you get mold under control as soon as possible. Call SERVPRO of Phoenix at (480) 503-2090 today to speak to one of our experts. Remember, early detection is your best chance to minimize damage.

Water Damage Quick And Efficient Water Damage and Water Removal Services in Phoenix After A Disaster Drips and Small Leaks in Phoenix Can Lead to Significant Water Damage

SERVPRO Offers Restoration and Cleanup from Water Intrusions

Water damage can be tricky to control in Phoenix homes. When water finds its way into structural cavities of your home, it creates trapped pockets of saturation. Locating water in these spaces often requires using advanced moisture detection meters; otherwise, the moisture continues to wreak havoc on structural components. This dampness can result in odors at a minimum, but the more significant damage may surface when materials begin to shrink, delaminate, split, and deteriorate demanding costly repairs.
 
If you detect excess water or moisture in your Phoenix home, you need to contact an experienced water removal service to control the damage. At SERVPRO, we have a team of highly trained, highly skilled restoration experts who can respond quickly to your water damage emergency in Phoenix. Our equipment is up to scratch with IICRC guidelines, and our methods are designed to accelerate the drying process and help you get back to your life as soon as possible.
 
There are many different causes of flooding and water damage in the house. Some of the factors that may necessitate water removal services include clogged toilets, leaky dishwashers, broken dishwasher hoses, broken pipes, leaky roofs, overflowing washing machines, foundation cracks, and plumbing leaks. Weather-related events such as heavy rain, floods, and heavy snow can also lead to excess water in your home.
 
SERVPRO has a wide range of tools for dealing with both major and minor water damage situations. Too much water can cause significant destruction to your property, so it is important to initiate the water removal process immediately. By starting the cleanup job sooner rather than later increases the chances of saving water-soaked carpets, furniture, clothing, rugs, and other items.
 
Assessing the extent of the water damage is essential before choosing the water removal procedure to avoid further loss. Water damage comes in some categories. The first category refers to clean water and does not present a threat to humans. It can come from sink overflows or broken appliances, among other sources. The second category refers to gray water, and it is typically contaminated with microorganisms, putting you at risk if ingested. Possible causes include seepage, broken sump pumps, and broken toilets. The third and most severe category of water damage is known as black water. It is packed with bacteria and other disease-causing pathogens, with sewage problems being the most common source.
 
The water removal process involves using different materials and procedures with the aim of saving cherished belongings. While SERVPRO specializes in mitigating water damage, our success depends on the amount of water causing the damage and the severity of the situation.
 
If your home has sustained extensive water damage, SERVPRO of Phoenix has the tools and the means to assist. We are available around the clock and can provide swift water removal services at your request anytime. Call us today at (480) 503-2090.

Understanding Flood Damage Contamination in Phoenix

11/10/2017 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Understanding Flood Damage Contamination in Phoenix Flood damage brings contaminated water into your home, SERVPRO works quickly to remove the water and restore your home.

SERVPRO Properly Removes Contaminated Water from Your Home after a Flood

This last year, Phoenix and the rest of the country has seen extreme weather drop incredible amounts of water in just a few hours. Hurricanes and thunderstorms have overwhelmed sewer and drain systems from Florida to California. Dams have burst and levees and rivers crested, wiping out small towns and causing billions of dollars in damages in major cities.

Flood damage in Phoenix from storms also brings the threat of contaminated water. The soil is the most common contaminant, but other sources include something as simple as the water a flood pushes back through a washing machine. The additional risk to a home increases the cost of cleanup and makes the remediation and restoration services SERVPRO provides more critical than if the water was clean.

The first step we take is to lift property off the floor. When contaminated water is in the carpets, sofas and other furniture have to be placed on blocks or taken out of the home. It helps water to drain from the property items, increase airflow around them and also prevents furniture from leaving stains on floors and carpets.

We start to clean Items with surface contamination immediately, and then we inspect all property again to determine the right method. We prefer to use brushes to remove as much of the contaminants as possible if it does not spread it or damage the surface. It is effective on hard surfaces but less effective on upholstered furniture or delicate fabrics like heavy drapes or curtains.

To remove stains, SERVPRO technicians have a very broad inventory of commercial-grade detergents and anti-microbial agents that can clean heavy soils and neutralize the health threat of any contaminants. If the amount of soil is too thick or the item has been under water for an extended amount of time, we use an immersion tank that generates sonic waves to force cleaning agents through the property item.

Remediating the effects of a flood is difficult, but SERVPRO of Phoenix has the equipment, training, and experience to help you through the procedures. If you need our help or simply have a question, call us at (480) 503-2090.
