With flammable materials like oil and grease in no short supply throughout the facility, even the most dutiful of mechanics are only a weld away from combustion that can quickly spread throughout the shop floor.

As problematic as fire damages can be for your Tucson business, leaving the restoration in the hands of skilled professionals like our SERVPRO team can ensure that the work gets done efficiently and correctly.

Our SERVPRO team can assess the full scope of this damage quickly, and bring in specialized equipment like high-powered vacuums to use in conjunction with wet and dry sponging for residues and soot damages. 

With the high ceilings of your auto body location necessary for hoisting vehicles, soot and smoke residue can often travel high up on the walls and even affect the ceiling in the shop area. We can bring in equipment such as scissor lifts and man lifts to reach these higher elevations. 

While you have steady traffic that comes into your repair shop every day, a fire can keep you from offering that service to the community. Let our SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley rapid response team get to work quickly for you in this pressing time by calling (520) 648-7360.

Why SERVPRO Why You Need To Call SERVPRO At the First Signs Of A Leak in Tucson Don't try and fix a leaky sink yourself call the professionals.

Why SERVPRO is the Right Choice for Water Damage Cleanup in Your Tucson Home

A leaky faucet in your Tucson home might not seem like a big deal. What do a few drops of running water throughout the day matter? Most people do not pay much attention to leaky faucets, even though fixing them can be easy, fast, and pretty painless. They instead procrastinate getting it fixed, and do not bother to take care of it until there is significant damage.

However, a leaky faucet left unchecked can create plenty of water damage in your Tucson home, among being a nuisance in other ways. If you have neglected a leak in your residence and are now reaping the consequences, get in touch with our staff at SERVPRO. We can clean up the water and repair the damage with our professional tools and training, making it easy to see why SERVPRO is the right choice for water damage cleanup.

Besides the apparent damage, a leaky faucet can also cause another big problem. While it might not look like there is much water coming from the leak itself, the reality is that a consistent dripping leak can cost you quite a bit of extra money on your water bill each month. When you fix one faucet, you can save nearly ten percent of your average yearly water bill. SERVPRO techs are always ready to help you with your leak as soon as you know there is an issue, so let us come in right away and repair the damage done.

Besides how the leaking faucet affects you, it is reported that a leak at an average household can make up over ten thousand gallons of wasted water every year. That is enough water to wash two hundred seventy loads of laundry!

Additional water damage that is even more severe can be done to your home as well. A sink leak that goes unchecked puts added stress on your plumbing, causing drains to clog and overflow. It can also lead to deteriorated grout and caulk, resulting in water leaking through and damaging your flooring and ceilings throughout the structure. Sometimes, leak damage is so problematic it can create a stain in your sink as minerals pool in the sink basin.

SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson/Sahuarita/Green Valley understands the seriousness of a sink leak in your home in Vail, Littletown, or Summit. Please get in touch with us right away by dialing (520) 648-7360 if you are dealing with water damage from a leak that has been left for too long so we can restore your home quickly.

What Few People Know About Flood Damage Remediation in Tucson

1/13/2019 (Permalink)

Storm Damage What Few People Know About Flood Damage Remediation in Tucson Anytime that flooding affects a home, water removal services are urgently required. Contact our SERVPRO team to assess the situation and remediate.

What to Do After a Flash Flood Strikes Your Tucson Home

Unexpected disasters are impossible to prepare for, but returning your Tucson home to its original condition does not have to be as overwhelming as it might initially seem. Flooding is a common threat to Tucson homes, especially through the rainier months of the year. When the ground is already overly saturated by the regular rainfall, conditions like flash flooding can occur with little warning or time to prepare.

Flash flooding damage in Tucson can affect your home in several ways, and homeowners do not often have the expertise or professional equipment necessary to restore their property to the extent that it requires. Our SERVPRO technicians go far beyond flood damage cleanup and can successfully restore properties affected by flash flooding by offering efficient extraction and effective drying solutions designed to protect the structural base elements of your home.

One of the common concerns with flooding is the effect that the water has on the construction materials it comes into contact with, but our team can help. Often with the threat of contamination, dirt, and unknown debris, controlled demolition is the best solution to overcome the threats of saturated materials. While our team often seeks to preserve original materials over reconstruction efforts, flooding situations are often the exception to this rule because of the unknown variables that exist.

Our mitigation work begins as soon as our SERVPRO professionals arrive at your address following an emergency. Our Green Fleet gets equipped with truck-mounted and gas-powered pumps to extract excess water from the affected areas quickly. Once this water gets removed, our professionals can quickly get to work on setting up our industry-leading drying equipment like air movers and dehumidifiers for moisture and saturation removal.

While you cannot always monitor the conditions to know when a flash flood is possible, knowing what to do once one occurs can help protect your home from costlier repairs and restorations. Our SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley rapid response team is available 24/7 to help at (520) 648-7360.

SERVPRO Will Restore Your Green Valley Home When Bad Weather Hits

1/6/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO SERVPRO Will Restore Your Green Valley Home When Bad Weather Hits SERVPRO can restore your home after wind had caused structural damage to your home.

Why SERVPRO Delivers What Is Needed When Water Damages Your Green Valley Residence

The topography and weather patterns of the Green Valley, Sahuarita, and Vail areas in Arizona expose properties to severe damage done by the straight line winds and downdrafts of microbursts. The intense physical strain caused by a microburst might not cover a vast region, but any structures in its path can suffer significant damage. Professional restoration services offered need to resolve property security issues as well as providing water remediation.

Heavy rains accompanying or following a microburst easily enter through destroyed roofing or siding, causing considerable water damage to homes in Green Valley. Before our team turns its attention to the interior devastation, we must reinstate the exterior integrity of your dwelling. Our technicians are roof-tarping experts, and also excel at boarding up other breaches of protective building materials. 

The expertise we bring to flat roof damage is why SERVPRO is the restoration company of choice in Green Valley, Sahuarita, and Vail. Quick and effective blocking of further damage from heavy rains permits our crews to create and implement a plan that removes the rainwater that already made its way inside quickly and moves on swiftly to the structural drying. 

Every hour that a home’s interior holds excess water is an opportunity for progressive deterioration of structural components. Drywall crumbles, ceiling tiles bulge, and hardwood floors warp. If moisture in building materials, fixtures, furnishings, and personal possessions exceeds normal levels for more than 24 to 48 hours mold damage also is a likely complication. 

Once the exterior is secure, we showcase why SERVPRO is a water damage restoration industry leader. Our service vehicles carry the pumps and extractors required to remove both evident and hidden standing water, truck mounted and generator-ready even if the storm took the power offline. Crew members measure and monitor moisture levels, establishing a baseline for appropriate drying goals. 

Air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers unloaded from our green trucks then create the balance needed to restore moisture levels to normal. The extensive training our employees master in the science behind drying is another reason why SERVPRO delivers excellent results even after major wind-related structural damage. 

SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley offers the communities we serve a full spectrum of water damage solutions. Call us at (520) 648-7360 for everything from tarping and boarding-up to water removal to complete home drying after storm damage.

Fire Damage What Few People Know About the Extent of Fire Damage on Your Vail Property Whether wildfires affected your home directly or just left your property with debris cleanup, SERVPRO is the company to call for remediation services.

Cleaning Up Fire Debris Inside and Outside of Your Vail Residence

Wildfires can affect your Vail home throughout the drier seasons of the year. A good example of this potential disaster is the Burro Fire which destroyed close to 20,000 acres in 2017. While these are less frequent than similar disasters in other areas of the country, preparing for this possibility can help to protect your property from worsening conditions as debris affects your house and its surroundings. Our technicians respond to house fires throughout our service area, but wildfires can affect multiple properties simultaneously, which makes a fast reaction from our customers all the more important.

Vail residents, along with homeowners in Green Valley and Sahuarita would all be in need of fire debris cleanup should a wildfire large enough pass through our service region. Our SERVPRO fire damage team in Vail can respond quickly in an emergency once a customer calls, offering a fast assessment of the damage to the property and effective solutions for recovery. With our personnel on site, we can begin the process of cleaning up soot and smoke damage, and any present debris located throughout the inside or outside of the house.

One of the most pressing concerns for homeowners is not understanding what might be in the debris and ash getting into their homes and around their properties. Depending on what was consumed by the spreading blaze, contaminants and toxins could exist in the debris settling on a property that could pose health risks to the occupants and pets living there. Our SERVPRO professionals have extensive training in the use of personal protective equipment to negate these risks as we work quickly to clean up the effects of debris, soot, and smoke damage throughout the house.

Debris cleanup is sometimes the only fire effects that homeowners must contend with when area wildfires occur, but these can still present risks and threats to your house and those living in it. Give our SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley rapid response team a call to help you overcome these effects quickly. You can reach us 24/7 at (520) 648-7360.

Ways SERVPRO Dries Your Water Damaged Vail Home

Water Damage Ways SERVPRO Dries Your Water Damaged Vail Home Are your appliances contributing to water damage?

Restoration of Water Damage in Vail Homes from Start to Finish

Returning home and finding your property saturated in water from a burst pipe or structural weakness can be emotionally draining. In areas of the home like a garage or cellar, keep-sakes need fast removal to prevent permanent harm. In insulated areas of the home, water can seep into wall cavities, beneath the subfloor or absorb into fabrics and furniture. These types of infiltration are not easy to remove, and you do require professional help to get the job done correctly.

One of the key things to remember for a technician remediating water damage in Vail properties is that "wet always moves to dry," which is one of the reasons water moves from wet materials to dry ones. It is also a reason why correctly drying properties can take a lot longer than initially expected, especially without the right training and equipment.

SERVPRO technicians train on how to remove water and dry a structure in the most efficient way possible. That starts with water extractors which use vacuum power and heated wands to draw water out of fabrics and floors. Where standing water is above two inches, we can use gas-powered pumps to remove it rapidly. Extracting water this way is 1,200 times faster than dehumidification.

Similar to how water moves from wet materials to dry materials, evaporated moisture moves from humid air to drier air. When relative humidity levels go above 60%, it can slow the drying times of furniture and fabrics. SERVPRO uses rapid air movers to push moisture saturated air away from the affected area. This process helps to further reduce the drying time and the costs of your restoration service.

One of the reasons SERVPRO is so prevalent in the community is because of our attention to detail. Industry leading training and IICRC certification ensure that we can deliver an efficient restoration effort to any size disaster.

Contact SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley at (520) 648-7360 for an expert, efficient water restoration.

Vail is named after brothers Edward and Walter Vail who lived here in the 1870s.  Click here for more information.
