Dependable Professional Help for Commercial Flood Damage During the Tucson Monsoon Season

Visitors to the Tucson area from June through September can be shocked by the flooding following a monsoon. The erroneous belief that our beautiful desert climate is immune from flash flooding should not catch you off-guard. You and your staff worked hard and deligently to build your business. We pledge to match your commitment if called to help you recover from the aftermath of monsoon flooding.

The flood damage in a Tucson commercial building is short-lived yet intense and can be devastating. Water flows into your property not only from the rains falling nearby but also from higher elevations. The combined force of the moisture falling from the sky and rushing along washes also brings silt and other debris that complicated recovery.

SERVPRO trains our employees in effective flood restoration protocols, supporting enrollment in the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration (IICRC) courses. When we arrive to help, an experienced crew chief inspects the damage and creates a plan. Our crew members respond immediately, no delay necessary because all needed equipment is waiting on our signature green service vehicles.

Our crews shovel away mud and other debris, readying your site for water removal. Pumps and truck-mounts extractors receive power from gas and generators if your electricity is unavailable. Flood waters contain an endless list of contaminants, from chemicals on roadways and fields, to dead animals and insects, to human waste from overwhelmed septic or sewage systems. The pathogens potentially mixed into the flood waters need containment and lawful disposal. SERVPRO employees are familiar with industry best practices to contain, remove, and discard not only the muddy water but also the hazards it contains.

We do not cease work at your commercial site until we are sure our efforts removed all moisture and surfaces are cleaned and disinfected. Our employees use sensitive moisture meters and thermal imaging devices to locate remaining pockets of water and to establish a baseline for drying goals. SERVPRO crews use carefully controlled demolition techniques such as flood cuts to gain access to areas in building cavities to remove standing water and permit air flow to complete structural drying.

SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley is ready for your call at (520) 648-7360 if your business is in the path of flash flooding this monsoon season. Our highly-qualified employees and state of the art equipment transform flooding chaos to "Like it never even happened."

Our management team evaluates the category of water filling the lower levels of your dwelling. Flood waters are by definition black or Category 3 water. SERVPRO is familiar with the regulations applying to hazardous waste disposal and pledges to handle the water removed appropriately.

The pathogens flood water contains poses health risks and also can support fungal growth that damages building materials. Once the flood waters evacuate your home, SERVPRO employees transition to cleaning and disinfecting with EPA-registered products. The final step in flood remediation is structural drying. Our skilled crew positions air movers and heaters to move moisture absorbed by porous structural components into the air as vapor, ready for capture by our high-efficiency dehumidifiers.

Water Damage How Dehumidifiers Help With Water Damage Restoration in Tucson SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley is well equipped to handle all of your water loss event needs.

Why We Have Many Dehumidifiers for Water Damaged Tucson Homes

There are many tools that our team uses to address the detrimental effects of water loss incidents in your Tucson home. In some instances, like with dehumidification equipment, we have multiple sizes and types of these units to suit every disaster and severity. We understand the importance of having the right machines for the job, and that is why these machines are all available in our ready trailers prepared to roll out from our facility at a moment’s notice when disasters strike.

Many homeowners can appreciate the disastrous effects of allowing water damage in Tucson to persist after an emergency. Time is of the essence to get the saturation and moisture back to acceptable parameters, and assessment is a considerable part of that equation. We have multiple devices to detect the presence of moisture pockets and excessive dampness beyond the accessible damage zone. Our SERVPRO professionals have continued training in identifying water damage threats and mitigation tactics to protect as much of your property as possible.

The dehumidification equipment that we use helps to manage the moisture content in damaged areas of your residence. Low Grain Refrigerant (LGR) dehumidifiers are an ideal selection in conditions where a considerable water loss incident has taken place. In most applications, LGR units address conditions where moisture levels are below 55 grains per pound. This measurement gets based on a pound of dry air and each grain in the scale representing a drop of water.

Desiccant dehumidifiers absorb moisture through a filtering process over silica gel. Humidity in this air brought into the unit gets removed and air exhausted from the machine is dry and warm, helping to dry out the affected areas further. This equipment can get set up in multiple locations throughout a water-damaged home, helping our SERVPRO team to address numerous saturation points.

Our SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley rapid response team understands how vital it is to get mitigation started immediately when a home gets affected by a water loss incident. You can count on our team to arrive with all of the necessary equipment to help. Give us a call anytime you need us at (520) 648-7360.

Fast Action by SERVPRO Against Flood Damage in Tucson Saves Attic Guest Room

This area of Arizona is under no danger for flood damage from threats such as storm surge; however, we do experience intense storms, and flash floods are a real danger to properties in the area. When water enters a home, it is vital that it is cleaned up professionally to avoid secondary damages such as mold or foul odors.

After a late night heavy rains, SERVO technicians responded to a call regarding flood damage in a Tucson home. Clogged gutters on the house had caused the fascia boards to rot over time and allowed water to enter an attic converted to a guest room. There was almost no standing water, but several wet items. We immediately tarped over the area to stop any further water from entering the property.

Our technicians immediately removed the wet area rug and other damp items for drying and disinfection in our facility. The drywall and flooring were inspected to see the extent of moisture penetration using our soft probes and thermal imaging. It is critical to determine if and how much water has wicked into drywall and if flood cuts are necessary for drying before we set up air movers. Once our technicians have identified every place in the room with raised moisture levels, the drying phase began.

During the drying process, the air movers are explicitly angled to cause water vapor to rise, and when it does, it is captured by the desiccant dehumidifier that collects and expels water vapor as droplets of water. After drying, the area was thoroughly wiped down and disinfected by hand. Our location offers building services, and we were able to suggest and offer the necessary repairs to the fascia board to stop this issue from reoccurring the next time it rained.

Steps That Lead To A Positive Outcome During Water Cleanup In Tucson

Although water is the primary agent used in almost every cleanup activity, an unwanted spill can cause a myriad of problems. In many cases, it pools around the property, so fast extraction solves the problem. However, if it leaves wet contents or building materials, other problems like staining and even mold development can occur. Mold starts growing within 24-48 hours after the spill. We offer professional restoration services that ensure you take the right restoration steps.

Fast response is one of the crucial steps during water cleanup in Tucson. Although the spill happens fast, it takes some time for the water to seep through slightly porous materials such as wood. Similarly, it takes time for the water to dissolves dyes in porous materials, so responding fast can help forestall problems such as staining, warping, and rot. Our SERVPRO technicians use fast extraction equipment such as truck-mounted water extractors. We also have portable water extractors, which increase the convenience of reaching different areas within the property.

Water leaves property dirty by transferring debris such as dust from one area to another or dissolving dyes from non-colorfast fabrics. It also causes rust in metallic items. Proper cleanup of affected areas is necessary to restore the property to its preloss state. Our SERVPRO technicians use power washers, steam cleaning equipment, and multi-surface scrubbers and other equipment to clean your property. We also utilize professional cleaning agents including powders, sprays, granules, and liquids to clean up any soiling left by the spill “Like it never even happened.”

Proper water cleanup also involves drying any unnecessary moisture from the property. After extracting water from the spill and the cleaning efforts, our SERVPRO technicians take steps to dry the property. We use different equipment to monitor moisture levels. Thermal cameras help us establish whether there is wetness in concealed areas. We also have moisture meters, which help us establish the actual moisture levels present in different materials. Our specialists then use dehumidifiers and air movers to dry the property to normal levels.

For an adequately executed cleanup exercise after water damage, call SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley to assist. You can reach us at (520) 648-7360 any time. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

How Fire Suppression Systems Can Cause Water Damage in Sahuarita

3/19/2019 (Permalink)

Commercial How Fire Suppression Systems Can Cause Water Damage in Sahuarita Fire suppression systems can save your business from a fire, but they also leave a lot of water which needs professional removal.

Commercial Water Removal Techs in Sahuarita Talk About Sprinkler System Problems

Among the many problems that can take place inside your Sahuarita taco shop include issues with excessive moisture. There are many ways that water can leak inside your restaurant and force you to conduct extensive commercial water removal. For one, all restaurants have several water sources which mean there are plenty of pipes that have the potential of bursting. Severe weather can also break structural components and cause moisture to enter your dining room. Other situations that can cause you to have to call in a professional commercial water removal company such as SERVPRO include problems associated with workplace accidents.  

Anyone who owns a restaurant knows that mistakes do happen and at times they can become costly to your company. For example, if one of your large prep sinks inside your kitchen overflows due to it being unattended your manager could find themselves in a situation where they have to call in a professional commercial water removal team in Sahuarita like SERVPRO. Employee-related issues are quite common in the workplace and account for several insurance claims every year. Most businesses try to focus on proper employee training to help prevent problems that cost the company and insurance carriers much money. However, accidents happen and sometimes your taco shop is the victim, and all you can do is reach out for help from the professionals.  

One rather common mistake is accidentally starting a grease fire inside your kitchen. Most industrial kitchens come equipped with advanced sprinkler fire suppression systems that are designed to spray several gallons of water onto a fire in a short period. Most of the sensors on the systems take excessive heat to activate, but once they go off, they can fill up your entire kitchen with standing water.  

Any cause of excessive moisture that enters a structure can potentially get many objects inside your place of business wet. Wet furniture and mildew-like odors can put a damper on business and therefore needs remediating right away. If you ever have an accident inside your taco shop, call SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley at (520) 648-7360 24 hours a day.
