Commercial When You Need Rapid Water Restoration for Your Green Valley School When your school has visible water damage, your best course of action is to contact SERVPRO for an assessment and remediation services.

Team SERVPRO Focuses on Effectively Drying Out Your Water Damaged School

Not every water incident in your Green Valley institution requires long spans of restoration work. However, even smaller scale incidents do require immediate attention if you want to use the affected areas of the school for the students or faculty. Failure to address the problem as it happens can lead to worsening conditions, which may ultimately require you to shut down the school until the situation gets resolved.

Your board of education and individual schools all have staff dedicated to the maintenance and clean up of the facility. While these individuals offer your building the kind of upkeep it requires, they might not have the tools and experience to handle water emergencies and subsequent commercial water damages to your Green Valley facility when they happen.

When you first discover the water damage in any area of the school, you should reach out to our SERVPRO professionals right away. We can respond quickly to begin our assessment of the damage and work to efficiently determine the equipment needed to restore the damage as promptly as possible. Part of the reason that we work to be Faster To Any Size Disaster is so that you do not have to compromise the educational opportunities you provide to the children of the community.

Even though much of the school has concrete, tile and linoleum flooring, water damage can still adversely affect these materials if it persists for too long. To avoid having to remove large areas of the flooring or other materials that the water damage might have encountered, mitigation of the situation is critical. Our team can help to limit the damage that the building experiences when our SERVPRO technicians get made aware of the problem as soon as you are.

The students, faculty, and parents all depend on your school to be open and available for education when you are meant to be. Do not let a water incident in your facility prevent you from that availability. Trust in the experience of our SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley water restoration technicians who can show up quickly and help you to overcome the damage entirely.

Storm Damage Mitigating Flood Damage To Your Green Valley Home with Roof Tarping Services SERVPRO Respons Swiftly to Protect a Damaged Roof in Green Valley after a Monsoon Wind Passed

SERVPRO Helps Keep the Water Out While Removing the Water from Within Your Property after a Monsoon

As many who live in the Green Valley area are already familiar, the summertime is when some of the most torrential rainfall and severe weather conditions affect the area. Between July and August, the monsoon season ravages homes and businesses throughout the region and tests their abilities to withstand the palpable strength and ferocity of the storms.

The unfortunate truth to this scenario is that many homes within the Green Valley area cannot avoid the flood damages that result when their roofs give way and fail under the intensity of the severe weather system. Our SERVPRO professionals can not only assist you with the immediate concerns of flood damages but also in your need for short-term roof tarping until the appropriate repairs can get made.

During these severe weather events, many different styles of roofs find themselves in danger of failing. For example, a straight line wind from a microburst has the strength to tear off roofs altogether. Heavy rain can wreak havoc on flat roofs as well, posing similar avenues for flood damage to penetrate through the upper level of your home and affect a wide area inside of your house.

Amid a flooding event, you need a team of restoration professionals that can respond quickly and limit this exposure and avenue for floodwaters to penetrate. Our SERVPRO technicians can help you to mitigate the damage you experience by working to tarp over the damage your roof has experienced from a monsoon to stop the flow of water into your home so that extraction efforts can begin. We can use a "shrink-wrap" process to secure the storm-damaged opening from the elements quickly. Substantial roof repairs, especially on a larger scale later get handed off to accredited residential contractors that can replace the damaged areas entirely.

Sometimes you have to have a quick solution to keep your home from experiencing irreparable damages amid severe weather or monsoon passing through the area. Our SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley water damage restoration specialists can help you to limit the damage your home experiences with roof tarping and water removal services and get to work on fully restoring your home.

Common Reasons For Mold Damage In Green Valley Residences

7/12/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Common Reasons For Mold Damage In Green Valley Residences When a mold spore encounters moisture, it grows.

Common Reasons For Mold Damage

As a proud homeowner in Green Valley, you are aware of the curb appeal as well as the appearance and comfort inside your house. Regular cleaning and maintenance go a long way toward keeping your home as you desire. Unfortunately, forces can be at work to derail your best-laid plans. If you discover mold growth do not despair; let us help.

Mold damage in your Green Valley home can cause you to question your housekeeping skills. Keeping microbial growth at bay is more complicated than merely keeping areas clean. Mold spores are everywhere, and cannot be eliminated from any space unless prohibitively expensive and frankly unavailable air purification and sealing are in place. Commercially microbe-free “clean rooms” do exist in labs or specialized healthcare facilities, but are not practical in your or anyone’s home. We help you manage this reality when we respond to your need for mold remediation.

When a mold spore encounters moisture, it grows. It does not need anything more than a bit of water, oxygen, and an organic surface upon which to multiply. Perfect surfaces include wood, drywall, fabrics, and even metals, glass, or tile if just a tiny residue of soap, grease, or skin oils or cells is present. This explains why a “clean” bathroom or kitchen can provide the food needed for mold. SERVPRO mold remediators search for likely moisture sources under sinks, in unsealed grout lines, or where damp, dirty clothing piled up near the washer before laundry day. Unnoticed condensation under your self-defrosting freezer or the flooring under a pet’s water dish all offer the moisture mold needs, and there are dozens of other examples where tiny collections of water fuel microbial growth. We advise you to eliminate all of these moisture sources to avoid future mold damage.

Regardless of the source of the moisture, SERVPRO responds according to the protocol developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Applied Microbial Remediation Technician training completed at Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC). We establish the extent of the mold infestation, which can include hidden areas behind walls and under other structures. Containment is the next step. Our crew sets up zones, ensuring that the moldy debris does not travel. Plastic sheeting might be joined with a negative air pressure system that prevents the contaminated air from drifting into non-affected areas.

We remove mold by mechanical means, brushing and scrubbing off non-porous surfaces and using controlled abrasives like soda blasting to save porous surfaces with a minor mold infestation. SERVPRO technicians train to determine what can be cleaned and what should be replaced. All moldy debris, including residues vacuumed with HEPA filter-equipped machines, are bagged and disposed of following local hazardous waste codes. EPA registered antimicrobials treat the now-cleaned surfaces to inhibit mold regeneration.

SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley provides our communities with expert mold remediation services. Call us at (520) 648-7360 to schedule an appointment to consult about your mold damage problem.

What To Expect When SERVPRO Restores Fire Damage Suffered By Your Vail Home

Fire Damage What To Expect When SERVPRO Restores Fire Damage Suffered By Your Vail Home When a fire strikes your property, you can lean on our SERVPRO technicians to help you get back in your home quickly.

Take A Look At Our Fire Damage Restoration Process in Vail Residential Homes

When your Vail home experiences the devastation of a fire, you should not be surprised to feel stressed and overwhelmed. Although it is clear you cannot manage the fire damage remediation tasks on your own, you and your family have front-row seats as we work on restoring your home back to its original look and function -- “Like it never even happened.” Here is what you have to anticipate as we complete each step.

Within hours of your call, we arrive at your Vail home ready to assess the fire damage. Our crew lead inspects all areas of your home, even spaces far from the blaze. Smoke and soot can spread throughout a building, especially if the HVAC system was in operation at the time of the fire and continued to work afterward. We evaluate the characteristics of soot residues, which can be different from space to space. The level of charring and involvement of fixtures and personal belongings is essential to confirm as we develop a plan to restore the premises.

If water extinguished the flames, SERVPRO begins with water removal and structural drying. Ridding the house of water is a safety requirement, limiting slip and fall risks, avoiding the threat of electrocution, and halting the deterioration of building materials. Mold growth is possible if water remains more than 24 to 48 hours after the event, making speed water damage mitigation critical.

As members of the team operate pumps and extractors, and position air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers, other SERVPRO employees begin cleaning up the sooty residues. Hot, high-temperature fires leave an ashy trail, removable with vacuums and dry sponges. Slow burning, low-temperature combustion allows thick, sticky soot to accumulate. We need cleaners with wetting agents and surfactants to loosen the coating. Spray and wipe, or immersion cleaning techniques have their place with this type of fire damage.

Kitchen fires leave an almost invisible coating that adheres like varnish or lacquer. SERVPRO employees employ abrasive techniques and possibly solvents to remove this film. As our crew moves through your home, we attend to surfaces and fixtures like carpeting, utilizing steam extractors and dedicated cleaners to pull residues out of carpet or upholstery fibers. We also consider inventorying portable articles for pack out and transport to our production facility. Our fire damage production staff uses advanced strategies to restore items you might have felt were beyond repair.

Deodorization methods are far more efficient than the common cover-ups available over the counter get results. Slow and grease-based fires produce odors that are hard to eliminate, but SERVPRO offers access to a range of cutting-edge solutions including thermal fogging and hydroxyl generation that change the chemistry of odor-bearing particles, rendering them neutralized.

Locally Owned Company with National Resources


SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley has trained technicians, effective products, and the latest equipment to assist with fire damage in your residence.

Roof Tarping To Reduce Flood Damage In Green Valley Homes

Storm Damage Roof Tarping To Reduce Flood Damage In Green Valley Homes Green Valley Homes and Cactus Stand Up to Monsoon Season Well with SERVPRO's Help

SERVPRO Quickly Responds in Green Valley to Minimize Roof Damage from Monsoon Effects

Green Valley homeowners and residents can suffer a wide variety of damages after a micro-burst or monsoon cut through our community. The sudden and severe winds can cause as many problems as the water does to each home.

One of the methods SERVPRO uses to reduce flood damage in Green Valley home is roof tarping. It covers a roof to prevent secondary problems in the same way when our teams board up windows and doors. The process is more detailed, since roofs, particularly the flat roofs common to so many houses in our area, are more vulnerable to further wind and water damage than other entry points.
 
First, our SERVPRO technicians identify and measure the size of the damaged section of the roof. It is not enough to look at it and measure since winds can get under the tiles and damage the structure below it. Monsoon rain can be a significant source of water penetration into a structure. Depending on the roof structure and its components, a "shrink-wrap" process may be used to keep out the elements along with birds and vermin.
 
Next, team members unfold a tarp to cover the damaged section. Although most of these commercial tarps are blue, the color does not matter, as long as it is waterproof and is tough enough to drive a washered nail through or set a screw into it. Our technicians ensure there is enough material at the top and bottom of the tarp to help secure it, usually about four feet of material at the top and the bottom. They also measure so there is at least a foot of material on either side the damage as well.
 
Securing the tarp starts by wrapping the bottom of it around a 2x4 and nailing it down. SERVPRO technicians ensure it is secured at the edge of the eave to the roof framing and not just through the tile and panel. They do the same at the top and then drive another 2x4 on top of those make sure it stays in place. To secure the sides, team members use more 2x4s, securing them with enough material on the outside, so it does not pull away from the nails under high winds. They also make certain to nail them in place no more than about 6 to 10 inches apart.
 
The goal of SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley is to secure your home against further damage and to provide a safe environment while moving property and performing any needed restoration. Call (520) 648-7360 today to schedule a visit. We are here for you.

Mold Remediation For Your Green Valley Home

Mold Remediation Mold Remediation For Your Green Valley Home SERVPRO sets up chambers to properly contain mold damage and prevent it from spreading throughout your home

Our expert technicians use their knowledge and experience to remediate mold damage

The discovery of mold in your Green Valley home can be overwhelming at first. While many people do not fully understand how simple it is for fungal growths to occur in their home, they can appreciate that it is a damaging presence that needs to get removed. Unfortunately, conventional cleaning methods are often ineffective to get rid of colonized mold and therefore, professional remediation services are a necessity to get the job done.

Mold damage can present itself in multiple ways in your Green Valley home. One of those ways is how you most likely learned about the colonies growing: the musty odor. There are many steps to mold remediation, and our applied microbial remediation technicians at SERVPRO have the training and expertise to handle any aspect of the removal and restoration process to get your home back to its original condition.

From the time that our team arrives at your house, we get to work on assessing the full scope of the damage that your home faces as well as the source of the moisture that allowed the mold to develop in the first place. Repairing this damage to your home is critical to preventing the same occurrence in the immediate future.

Sectioning off the affected area helps to prevent mold spores from moving to new areas of your home, which is an essential component to remediation. This allows the removal of the mold colonies, while instruments like air scrubbers with HEPA filters work to catch and trap airborne spores from circulating out of the area. These pieces of equipment get used simultaneously with air movers and dehumidifiers to remove the moisture from the area that had fed the colony to this point.

One of the final steps in the remediation process is deodorization. This helps to eliminate that bold, musty odor that you encountered when you first discovered the mold damage in your home. Thermal foggers release a dense chemical compound to break apart these present odor molecules on contact and leave no discernable scent behind.

While no homeowner wants to have to address with mold damage in their home, the right professional assistance can make the process much more manageable. Our remediation technicians at SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley are available 24/7 by calling (520) 648-7360.

Fire Damage Deodorization For Your Fire Damaged Green Valley Home Smoke Odors Get Eliminated in Green Valley--Just Call SERVPRO

Green Valley Fire & Smoke Odors Handled by SERVPRO

A fire is something that no Green Valley homeowner wants to have happened to their residence, but this, unfortunately, is sometimes the case. With the kind of widespread damages that even smaller sized fires can produce, contending with the effects after the flames get extinguished can feel overwhelming and stressful. Fortunately, you have a team of restoration experts at your hand to help you through every facet of cleaning and restoring your home.

The truth is, fire damages to your Green Valley home can present themselves in several different ways. You might find yourself less bothered by some effects more than others, but still, want to seek out the kind of professional restoration that can handle all of the damage and bring your home back to preloss conditions as quickly as possible. "Like it never even happened." That is where SERVPRO comes in.

Our team gets to work quickly in determining the full extent of the damage and seals up small holes in your home's exterior that could allow elemental damages to your house during the restoration process. More significant gaps and severe destruction requires a residential construction contractor to rebuild these areas before our restoration work can begin.

While soot damage is a common thread to most of the fires that occur in homes, this is often not the effect that most homeowners get bothered by the most. The lingering scent of the smoke and charring of materials can remain in a home for an extended period after the fire has gotten extinguished, which can make living comfortably in your home a challenge. Then there is the added psychological issue of "imagined smoke odor." SERVPRO techs can place slow-release fragrance producing beads to grapple with this mindset.

Deodorization is one of the last processes that our SERVPRO technicians implement in a restoration plan. This process typically involves the use of a thermal fogger to break up noxious odor molecules and neutralize them to leave no traceable odor behind. During the cleanup efforts, hydroxyl generators or an ozone machine can also be used under the right circumstances.

Contending with the multiple adverse effects of a fire in your home is nothing that you should have to face alone. Our SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley fire restoration technicians are available to help you through every step of this process to restore your home to preloss condition. Give us a call anytime at (520) 648-7360.

Professional Water Damage Restoration Is The Smart Choice In Sahuarita

5/9/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Professional Water Damage Restoration Is The Smart Choice In Sahuarita SERVPRO Detects Excess Moisture and Removes Water from Sahuarita Homes to Mitigate Damages

Homeowners in Sahuarita Call Upon SERVPRO to Remove Water from Leaks and Mitigate Damages

With big box hardware and home improvement stores in Sahuarita full of equipment for the do-it-yourselfer, a homeowner can feel prepared for any emergency. The reality of water incursion events, however, often includes recovery complications an untrained person cannot anticipate. Our highly-qualified team of restoration experts has the training and experience, as well as the tools, to manage your water damage scenario successfully.
 
Water damage in a Sahuarita dwelling often traces to a long-time buildup of moisture from seemingly minor leaks in plumbing, appliances, or roofing. Sometimes the slow drip turns into a torrent when a pipe or connection breaks, or when a seasonal storm reveals roof flashings or gutter systems are in need of attention. It may even be caused by a swamp cooler on the roof. Responding to the immediate crisis leads to the discovery of the previous and unnoticed destruction. The crew members we send to your home are well aware of the propensity of water damage to accumulate quietly under cabinets and between walls.
 
When our SERVPRO team arrives an assessment of the immediate water damage encompasses any signs we see of prior issues. A key component of our investigation is the use of sensitive moisture meters and advanced infrared scanners that detect hidden pockets of water. As we begin pumping and extracting the visible water, we keep in mind that Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC) industry standards require applied structural drying of every material and recess saturated. Our production managers always determine drying goals based on IICRC mandates and develop a step by step action plan to achieve those goals.
 
Once the pumps and wanded extractors complete their phase of the restoration, SERVPRO employees move in high-efficiency air movers and dehumidifiers to continue the structural drying. If indicated by the moisture levels within the structural components, heaters may join the tools employed to force water out of walls, floors, framing, fixtures, and ceilings. Moisture evaporates as it escapes the surfaces, and the evaporative or desiccant dehumidifiers we use reduce the resultant higher ambient humidity in the rooms affected by the water damage. We also choose effective strategies to release water trapped in hidden spaces -- drilling holes, pulling off baseboards and kick plates, or removing sections of compromised drywall or ceiling tiles.
 
The thoroughness SERVPRO brings to a water damage scene is crucial, as any lingering dampness continues to deteriorate dampened structures. Microbial growth is also a severe consequence of a failure to eradicate all excess moisture, including high humidity. Rely on our team’s proven ability to manage all aspects of your water loss restoration project.
 
Do not be caught over your head in water damage mitigation challenges. Contact SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley for fast and professional solutions to a water loss. Call (520) 648-7360 for a 24 hour, year-round response.
