How Your Phoenix Home Benefits from Water Damage Restoration

1/22/2020 (Permalink)

No one wants to deal with water damage in their home. There is not only the damage you can see but also underlying issues behind walls and under floors that may cause even more problems down the road. While you might be tempted to deal with the aftermath of water damage yourself, learn how your Phoenix home benefits from water damage restoration from the pros at SERVPRO of Phoenix.

Quick water removal reduces damages

Several issues can arise by failing to address the water damage challenges as soon as they happen. For instance, your contents may suffer costly damage if left unchecked. With time, what was salvageable may end up with permanent damage such as warping, tearing, mold or mildew. Electrical hazards may also show up unexpectedly, and therefore we always advise homeowners to work with professionals even when they think the situation is not that serious.

Find what’s causing the water damage first

Identifying and stopping the source of the water damage in your Phoenix property is the first step that our SERVPRO technicians perform. After that, we use detection equipment to determine the degree of water penetration. For general moisture detection in walls, carpets, and other areas, we use moisture sensors. However, for an accurate moisture reading and monitoring of the drying process, we use a moisture meter.
 
When there is some standing water in your structure, we must extract it using the appropriate extraction equipment. With the help of portable or truck-mounted extractors, water removal is possible. Usually, our SERVPRO team uses moveable types when removing water from areas with limited access. Apart from removing the water, the extractors are also helpful when cleaning upholstery and carpets.

Create a drying environment

Creating an environment where the rate of drying is faster is necessary during the restoration. That is why our team enhances airflow using air movers. After the water evaporates, it increases the air's moisture content which after some time cools and settles on areas. To prevent that, we perform dehumidification to address this and to lower the humidity of the air using desiccant or refrigerant dehumidifiers.

When some contents absorb the water, they rot, and after some time unpleasant odors result. Where possible, we remove the sources of those smells and after that administer deodorants by using ULV foggers or thermal foggers to neutralize them.

Why Commercial Cleaning is Important for Your Business

1/14/2020 (Permalink)

There are a lot of issues that business owners must worry about to keep their business running. Operations, sales, marketing, accounting issues…. the list goes on and on. With so much to worry about, sometimes issues such as ongoing commercial cleaning of a business is an afterthought, but this would be a mistake! Consistent commercial cleaning might not sound like a big deal, but a clean business sends a powerful message to staff and customers alike.

Why commercial cleaning is important to businesses of all sizes

Why is maintaining professional commercial cleaning from a company like SERVPRO of Phoenix so important? Here are some of the benefits of prioritizing workplace cleanliness:

  • It reduces the need to replace supplies and equipment as often. When dirt and grime are left to build up, they will cause unnecessary wear-and-tear on your office equipment. Flooring can become stained and unkempt, and office furniture left uncared for is unsightly, not to mention unsanitary. Regular professional commercial cleaning and maintenance will save you costly replacements of these items.
  • It can help you find and fix damages before they become a problem. Regular deep cleaning can help you catch issues you might not notice. Regular cleaning maintenance can help you see the signs of water damage and mold growth that may otherwise go unnoticed., Damage from leaks are much easier to deal with at the beginning of the issue and easier to resolve. The longer the damage from a water leak goes on, the higher the costs for repairs are going to be and the higher the risk of mold.
  • It can positively affect employee morale. An unclean workplace makes it difficult to concentrate and has been proven to cause stress, especially for those people who are highly sensitive to uncomfortable surroundings. When your workers are happy and productive, your customers and clients will know it, and an atmosphere of positivity will affect your business by encouraging repeat sales and referrals.
  • It gives your business an image and reputation of professionalism. If your business looks like a mess, most people may assume it’s unprofessional. Water-stained walls, dirty carpets, unkempt furniture and machinery, and dusty light fixtures can give your prospective customers the idea that you are not a professional business. Simple commercial cleaning on a regular basis can help address this.

Your Best Water Damage Detection System is You

1/2/2020 (Permalink)

When it comes to water damage, the speed of water removal is the key. The longer it lingers undetected, the worse the problem can be. Problems from faulty plumbing can escalate very quickly. Not only can the water destroy your furnishings and property structure, but it can lead to mold growth. The best way to detect water damage in your home is to be vigilant and aware of changes to your home. At SERVPRO, we believe in vigilance to detect water damage quickly.

Watch for water damage after storms or a plumbing leak
 

As a homeowner, it’s important to check your home thoroughly after a major storm or a plumbing leak. Many people make the mistake of assuming that once the water stops flowing, you’re in the clear but that’s not the case. Step one is to stop the water, but then look for further damage. Indications of possible water damage may include cracks or seams splitting in walls or the ceiling, tiles or wood floors lifting, or a musty odor. If you have any of these, call in a pro to make sure you get the damage handled quickly. Monitoring your water bill is another option you can consider. If you become accustomed to performing the usual, then you are aware of water usage. Keeping an eye on the monthly bill can reveal a sudden increase in usage from a leak.

Move quickly when you find water damage

To prevent further damage and protect the safety of your family, you need a company that can help avert further water damage to your Phoenix property. When damage strikes, quick mitigation from our experts can prevent further damage giving you peace of mind. Also, it can save you money associated with extensive and expensive repairs to your property. As a homeowner, there are a few actions you can take to prevent a water loss to your property. Storms happen and plumbing leaks; it happens to everyone. When you experience an incident, call a professional ASAP and do a few things to stop further damage:

  • Start by disconnecting outside hoses immediately after use. Water pressure buildup can lead to ruptured plumbing lines within the structure.
  • Check the connections to your appliances and fixtures for drips and leaks. Look for water spills and listen for drips or gushes so you can show the technician when they show up.

Why call SERVPRO
 

SERVPRO of Phoenix technicians are IICRC certified and can clean up and restore your home.

When Your Water Damage is Gone, Your Mold Problem May Start

12/18/2019 (Permalink)

fixing plumbing after water damage Fixing your water leak won't resolve a possible mold problem in your home.

This is a typical scenario for many Phoenix homeowners who rent their properties out or are absent from their home for an extended period of time:  a water pipe breaks, and water sits for a long time before the water issue is resolved. When the problem is finally discovered, the water damage is fixed, and all is better again, right?  Not so fast! Even when your water damage is gone, your mold problem may start. Find out what you need to do to address a potential mold issue by working with SERVPRO of Phoenix.

How likely is it that mold will form after water damage happens?

Phoenix homeowners assume our dry climate discourages mold, but that’s actually a fallacy. As a matter of fact, mold spores exist in almost every environment, including Arizona, and it only takes the right moisture conditions like a water leak for these spores to seep into materials and colonize. That means a mold problem for your home. Mold exists everywhere, indoors and outdoors, but a damp situation like a water leak can accelerate that growth into a mold issue for your home. When that happens, you’ll need mold remediation.

Even if you can’t see it, mold may be present in your home after water damage

Perhaps you were fortunate enough to catch your water issue early, and therefore water didn’t sit for too long. Does that mean mold isn’t an issue?  Possibly, but possibly not. Keeping in mind mold spores are everywhere, it doesn’t take much excessive moisture to become a problem, and often a mold problem is not visible. It could be behind plumbing walls, in carpet padding, or other hidden places. If you smell a musty odor, the chances are that you have a mold problem, but in many cases, mold is growing before you smell anything.

What steps should be taken to address a possible mold issue?

First, the source of the water damage needs to be addressed. If it’s not resolved, there’s a good chance that even if mold is present and is dealt with, it could come back again, which is why mold remediation should be left to professionals such as SERVPRO of Phoenix. They are certified to understand how to assess a situation and if a mold problem is found, address it so that the issue is resolved. Specifically, our mold remediation specialists will:

  • Inspect and assess mold damage
  • Contain the mold
  • Use air filtration for airborne mold spores
  • Remove any materials containing mold, including drywall, carpet, etc.
  • Clean any salvageable items with mold damage such as draperies, books, etc.
  • Restore the premised to pre-mold problem conditions

So SERVPRO can get rid of mold in my house?

Again, mold is everywhere, inside your home and outside your home, so mold cannot be “removed” completely. What it can be is contained or remediated to keep it under control. We understand mold and mold growth. SERVPRO of Phoenix has the training and expertise to remediate the mold in your home.

Work with one company to handle all your damage needs

As you can see, water damage actually requires multiple areas of expertise: fix the cause of the water damage, repair water damaged items, dry out the area, and deal with any mold remediation necessary. Why call multiple companies when you can rely on the experts at SERVPRO?  If your Phoenix home suffers from water damage, contact us 24/7 at (480) 503-2090 to address all issues that you may experience.

SERVPRO’s Advanced Technology Helps Get the Job Done Right

12/12/2019 (Permalink)

People are often surprised by how much training and expertise is required of SERVPRO professional technicians to address mold, water, fire, or storm issues. Our employees go through a significant amount of initial training as well as ongoing training to be well-prepared for any remediation issue they face. Above and beyond that, SERVPRO of Phoenix uses advanced technology to help restore a property to preloss condition quickly, reliably, and more effectively. Our advanced technology helps get the job done right.

The equipment we use to help face any issue head-on

One of the most damaging problems in many homes and businesses is water. It can be water that comes from storms, water from a pipe break, or even water left behind as the aftermath of a fire that was extinguished. Left unchecked or undetected, water can cause many unwanted issues. Fortunately, SERVPRO of Phoenix technicians have the technology to detect and address water issues. Water detection is the first step. When a home or business owner suspects water problems but is unsure where the water is at or what’s the cause, our moisture detection and measurement technology can really save the day, from infrared cameras to moisture detectors, hygrometers, and other meters that measure the extent of moisture saturation. Once water is located, we use various technologies to extract the water, including powerful extraction equipment that is either truck mounted or even submersible in high water situations.

Once the majority of water has been removed, more advanced technology is used for the drying phase was water remediation; if left unchecked, the moisture could lead to mold and odors. SERVPRO of Phoenix uses industrial-strength air movers and dehumidifiers to remove any remaining moisture from walls, ceilings, carpeting, and more.

Sometimes odors happen with water damage. If we find that odor is an issue, we have advanced technology that can remove airborne contaminants and control the air quality. We can also use thermal foggers and deodorization agents.

Our technology goes beyond equipment

SERVPRO water damage restoration services may also include using state-of-the-art, OSHA-approved cleaning agents. These disinfection products stop the growth of bacteria, fungi, mildew, and other harmful microorganisms. Our advanced technology helps get the job done right, beginning to end!

If your home or business has suffered from water damage, don’t delay! Contact SERVPRO of Phoenix at 480-503=2090 today and see how we can help!

Did November’s Torrential Rains Cause Storm Damage to Your Phoenix Home?

12/3/2019 (Permalink)

Unlike other parts of the country, Phoenix’s weather is fairly predictable….usually. We had a pretty tame monsoon season and yet we experienced a big rainstorm late in November that brought a lot of rain to the Valley. If your home experienced storm damage, it’s time to contact SERVPRO of East Phoenix!

Phoenix storms can be powerful and damaging

Monsoons can wreck havoc on a home of any size, but really desert storms in general can cause storm damage. The Thanksgiving weekend storm in Phoenix saw heavy rain and at least three tornadoes touched down in Phoenix. Even if your neighborhood was spared getting turned into tornado alley, rains pelted homes all across the Valley. This resulted in excess water, downed trees hitting homes and in some cases, damaged roofs; results you usually hear about during the monsoon, not in November. For many homeowners, the intensity of the storm took them by surprise.

Why it’s important to react quickly to storm damage

Water damage and flooding can cause structural damage that needs to be addressed quickly to maintain the integrity of the home. Working with a company such as SERVPRO which offers 24/7 emergency service insures that the issue will be dealt with quickly, efficiently and professionally. Even if the storm damage didn’t cause structural damage, the water damage caused by such an intense storm can cause issues including mold and possibly electrical damage (water and electricity don’t mix!). Here are a few water damage tips to follow after you experience storm damage:

  • Remove excess water by mopping and blotting.
  • Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removal of lamps and tabletop items.
  • Remove and prop wet upholstery and cushions.
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.
  • Turn air conditioning on for maximum drying in summer.
  • Remove colored rugs from wet carpeting.
  • Remove art objects to a safe, dry place.
  • Gather loose items from floors.

How SERVPRO of Phoenix can help

When you call the SERVPRO specialists, they’ll come out and inspect the damage, providing a full overview of what damage was done and how it needs to be addressed. We’ll check for contaminated water in the home to ensure the homeowner’s safety and do a complete safety inspection. Then we move to the water removal and water extraction stage. We’ll move out any belongings that need to be removed to get to all the water in the home. We’ll inspect the carpet and pad to assess how to best extract the water. We’ll follow that with our highly specialized equipment for water removal and extraction including moisture detectors, hygrometers, and other meters measure the extent of moisture saturation. We also use infrared cameras may be used to find “hidden” water behind walls and ceilings. We’ll leverage submersible and gas-powered pumps as needed for continuous pumping of high-level water and our truck-mounted and portable extraction units to perform efficient water removal.

We’re not done once the water is gone

After the water has been removed, there are still steps to be taken by our professional team. We turn our attention to drying and dehumidification to prevent more damage.  The floors and walls may appear dry, but a quick inspection will reveal they are wet to the touch. Nearly all building materials, like wood, drywall, and flooring materials, are porous and therefore retain water. This retained water can cause the materials to break down, warp, or cause mold damage.

The final step:  cleanup and repair

Once our team has the water under control and the drying process complete, we can assist with any items that need repair from water damage such as walls, flooring, etc. Our building services include:

  • Drywall Removal and Installation
  • Hardwood Floor Repair
  • Tile Floor Repair
  • Painting
  • Carpet Repair and Installation

We’ll also focus on odor removal and deodorization if necessary.

If your Phoenix home suffered storm damage from the Thanksgiving weekend, contact us right away at (480) 503-2090. We’ll get the job done and get you back to like it never happened!

Fire, Smoke and Soot Restoration is Critical After a Home Fire

11/27/2019 (Permalink)

Experiencing a fire in your Phoenix home can be a devastating experience. The anguish of property lost to the flames is only compounded by the property left behind that survived the fire but still looks damaged beyond repair. SERVPRO of Phoenix understands how important it is to help homeowners get back to a place where it feels like the fire never happened at all, but time and experience are key to making that happen. Our fire damage repair and restoration services focus on the fact that fire, smoke and soot restoration is critical to recovery.

Fire Damage Process Overview

When a home fire occurs, reaction time and the steps to assess the damage are significant factors in restoring a home back to its preloss condition. That’s why it’s important to follow an emergency fire damage process; a routine that every highly trained SERVPRO technician follows when coming out to a home that has suffered fire.  SERVPRO’s quick response can reduce continued damage and save money by quickly responding to the incident. It starts with a quick response time to let a homeowner know someone is on the way to assess the damage. Within four hours of loss notification, a SERVPRO professional will be onsite to start mitigation services. A technician will walk the homeowner through the step-by-step process to explain what services are needed and what the expected outcome will be. For restoration of property, they’ll start pretesting for restorability. Once they understand the possible outcome, they’ll communicate findings to the homeowner to get the process started, cleaning, restoring and deodorizing the property. It ends with a final walkthrough so that the homeowner can see what work was completed.

Fire, Smoke, and Soot Restoration Services

There are essentially two types of cleaning that happen during restoration:  structure cleaning and contents cleaning. Structural cleaning relates to ceiling, walls, windows, floors, carpeting and woodwork. All need a thorough cleaning after a fire. In some cases, a simple cleaning may suffice while in other cases, the cleaning may serve as a preface to additional services such as painting.

Contents cleaning can save significant money over replacing items damaged by the fire. Area rugs, furniture, drapes and upholstery can be cleaned and deodorized, saving the homeowner significant expenses of having to replace these items. This cleaning can also be done for electronics, art, kitchen items, clothing, bedding and more. Many homeowners assume that once contents have fire, smoke or soot damage they need to be replaced but that isn’t always the case! Oftentimes cleaning and deodorizing will take contents back to their preloss condition at a fraction of the cost to replace it. SERVPRO’s highly trained fire damage restoration technicians will provide the homeowner with a list of items that can be restored.

Expertise dictates what kind of restoration is done

Different types of smoke cause different types of damage and need to be treated differently. Wet smoke, such as occurs with plastics, can leave items sticky, while dry smoke, such as wood or paper, can leave ash and powdery residue. Unfortunately, there is also damage done from trying to extinguish flames, such as fire extinguisher residue that requires a different type of cleaning. Working with fire damage experts make all the difference in how well the home is restored after fire damage.

Fire, smoke and soot restoration is critical after a home fire and must be handled by a professional that knows how to get the job done. SERVPRO of Phoenix wants to ensure that our customers can return to happily living in their homes after a fire disaster. We have extensive experience and training, including IIRC training and certification, needed to provide you with the level of service you deserve. Call us at (480) 503-2090 so we can help restore your Phoenix residence after it suffers smoke or fire damage.

Highly Trained Professionals Are Important for Mold Remediation

Highly trained mold remediation specialist SERVPRO of Phoenix mold remediation specialist

Discovering that your home has mold can be frustrating and a bit frightening. How did it get there?  How do you get rid of it?  How can household items damaged by mold be repaired? How can you stop mold from happening again?  As highly trained professionals in mold remediation, there’s a reason why SERVPRO of Phoenix is the ideal company to call for mold issues in your home.

What is mold remediation?

Many people mistakenly assume that mold remediation is the same as mold removal, but that is actually untrue. In reality, mold is everywhere, indoors and outdoors, so guaranteeing “removal” of mold is impossible. What is possible is mold remediation, where mold issues are assessed, mold is contained, air filtration is implemented, mold infested materials are removed, and final cleanup and restoration of mold damaged items is completed. It’s a complicated process that needs professionals trained in mold remediation to get the job done thoroughly and correctly using a mold remediation process.

What kind of training do SERVPRO of Phoenix professionals receive?

While there’s no such thing as mold remediation school, there are several programs and certifications that SERVPRO of Phoenix technicians go through to ensure they’re doing the best job possible. First, there’s the initial franchise training, a 15-day hands-on course at the SERVPRO Corporate Training Facility that serves as the foundation of the SERVPRO training program. This course covers many restoration topics that not only include mold mitigation, but fire and water restoration, and carpet and upholstery cleaning. They also go through IIRC training and certification. IIRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) certifies and sets the standards for all the cleaning and restoration industries. SERVPRO technician professionals study IICRC standards and best practices in mold remediation, water restoration, fire restoration, carpet and upholstery cleaning, as well as other cleaning and restoration courses, to continue growing their expertise. In addition to this, there are several volunteer certifications programs through the franchise focusing on training, cleanup and restoration. Last, there are web-based and in person ongoing education classes that cover a variety of professional development topics on mold restoration and much more.

Handling mold issues is more than simply mold remediation

Understanding not only how to handle mold in a home or business, but how to restore a home to its condition prior to mold infestation takes highly trained professionals. As water and mold damage specialists, SERVPRO of Phoenix has the experience, the expertise, and the advanced training that enables us to get your property restored quickly and thoroughly. We do this quickly and efficiently through our fast response team and advanced equipment. That’s why SERVPRO of Phoenix should be your first call when you encounter mold issues. Got mold?

Commercial Storm Damage Services Are Vital to Any Phoenix Business

11/13/2019 (Permalink)

Flooded commercial facility in Phoenix This fabrication plant in Phoenix suffered flooding from a ruptured water line.

When businesses experience storm damage, the costs are multiplied by not only what the expense will be to repair the damage, but lost business during the time repairs are being done. When Phoenix businesses experience storm damage by our destructive monsoons, the costs can add up quickly, so working with a business such as SERVPRO of Phoenix can make a huge difference in how well a business recovers after commercial storm damage is experienced.

The cost of storm damages to a business

When monsoons or other violent storms cause damage to a business, regardless of size, the business can suffer significantly until the damage is repaired. First, the initial damage, which can include broken windows, soaked flooring and furniture, damaged walls and more, can be unsightly if not unsafe for both customers and employees. In many cases, businesses have to shut down fully or partially until the damage is assessed and repaired. In addition to the cost of repairs and lost business, productivity can suffer significantly even if the business remains open. The sooner a business can get fully restored and up to speed, the less costly the storm damage is to the company’s bottom line overall.

Why commercial storm damage presents a unique challenge to restoration specialists

Storm damage to commercial properties present a unique challenge to restoration specialists. Unlike residential properties, commercial properties may not be able to vacate the premises while restoration work is being done in order to keep the business up and running. Also, depending on the size of the business building itself, the restoration process can be on a much larger scale, especially those commercial building with multiple floors. Oftentimes, heavy or expensive commercial equipment has suffered from storm damage and needs to be restored or removed. And of course, while storm damage is never convenient for either a homeowner or a commercial property owner, commercial storm damage can be significantly more costly as more time goes on until the damage is repaired. With SERVPRO of Phoenix’s 24-hour emergency service, we can be faster to any disaster.

The timeline for water damage on commercial properties

Water damage restoration specialists understand the timeline of water damage and the costs associated. Within minutes of storm damage, water can spread quickly and cause damage to flooring, furniture, walls, equipment and more. Within 24 hours, drywall can swell, materials start to break down, and a musty odor can form. After 48 hours, windows and doors can swell, paint blisters and wood floors can warp. If damage is left unaddressed any longer than a week, significant mold damage can set it, greatly increasing costs to businesses. There are many major employers in Phoenix but large or small, water damage can be costly to a company.

Why business need to work with a commercial restoration specialist

Unfortunately, most companies don’t seek out commercial storm damage services until they need one and by then, the clock is ticking. Ideally, companies should identify a company that specializes in commercial storm damage restoration and other related services so they’re prepared should disaster strike. If your company is seeking a commercial restoration company as part of their emergency ready plan, contact SERVPRO of Phoenix at (480) 503-2090.

Phoenix Home Inspections for Hidden Mold Growth

10/30/2019 (Permalink)

Containment for Mold Remediation Containment at Phoenix home undergoing mold remediation.

A slew of issues can surface when you have mold in your Phoenix home, especially the attic. Home owners don’t typically inspect their attics for mold growth, which leaves the mold lots of opportunities to thrive and multiply, ready to spread in other areas of the home. When the mold growth has become out of control, you’ll need to find a professional home remediation company, like SERVPRO of Phoenix. A mold expert will come out, test and discuss what your options are.

When is Remediation Needed for Mold  in Your Home?

Your home can easily accumulate mold when you have a hidden water leak somewhere. Hidden water leaks are typically found behind a wall. Come the monsoon storms, hidden water leaks can also be found in your roof. The attic does not get regular human traffic, in fact, in some households, it’s only visited once a year. So finding mold growth in your attic is not all that uncommon. In order to determine if your mold growth requires remediation, you should have a remediation specialist come out to test.

SERVPRO of Phoenix, has professional mold experts that will come out, test for mold, and then consult you on what all of your options are. If remediation is what you chose to move forward with, based on the recommendations, our technicians will walk you through every step of the process with strong communication and care for your home.

If the mold expert comes out and found a lot of mold in multiple areas, then remediation is probably necessary. Mold growth can damage your home in a multitude of ways which include  the structural elements. Then you also have, and want to eliminate, the odor of mold in your home which lingers throughout and seemingly impossible to get rid of.

Could Your Home Have Mold Growing Somewhere?

There are 12 common molds found in households, but all of them cause damage, which starts with the surface its attached to. It also affects things like the ceilings, walls, framing, and insulation. If your home recently had a water leak that you are aware of, and you begin to smell musty odor, you probably have mold growth and should carefully look around for it. Even if you don’t see it, but you suspect its there, a mold specialist can come out and test and if it exists, will find it. When you call a mold expert as soon as you think you have mold, you are saving your home from any further damage.

So there are no water leaks in your home… that you are aware of, at least. There are more ways mold will take advantage of to exist. Insulation that has been improperly installed or is insufficient in its functionality becomes a prime environment for mold to thrive. An inadequate ventilation system within areas of your home will also provide areas where mold is likely to inhabit. Anywhere in the home that is associated with the plumbing system is also a very common place for mold growth.
