What Few People Know About How Quickly Water can Damage Your Tucson Home

Water damage can originate in many parts of your home. Contact SERVPRO immediately to dry out your property.

Fast and Reliable Water Removal Services in Tucson

Tucson homeowners want to make sure that they understand all aspects of what they need and take time to seek out estimates and bids with many household repairs and system replacement. When water invades your house, however, speed is essential. Waiting even a day or two subjects your property to the possibility of irreversible deterioration of many conventional building materials and exposes it to the risk of damage from microbial growth. We offer reliable restoration services 24/7.

Water removal needs in Tucson often trace their source to plumbing fails and appliance malfunctions. A drier climate outdoors cannot ensure protection from the many ways water damages the interior of a home. For example, a water heater that rusts through and cracks can send 30 to 50 or more gallons of water flooding through your home, with the water continuing to flow from the supply side until someone shuts down the main. This quantity of water requires fast, professional attention.

SERVPRO responds Faster To Any-Sized Disaster, understanding that water damage is one of the most destructive forces that attack a home. We arrive with fully-equipped service vehicles, stocked with submersible pumps and water extractors ready to roll. Our crew arranges the water shut off and uses pumps when more than 2 inches of water cover the affected area. Gas powered pumps allow us to get right to work even if the electricity is off for safety purposes.

Powerful truck-mounted water extractors take on removal duty as the water recedes and in recessed areas. SERVPRO technicians master moisture monitoring techniques in IICRC classes, guiding our crews to areas where moisture drained and hides. If significant quantities of water migrated between walls, we might make flood cuts to release the moisture. Replacing sections of drywall is a sensible choice when the trapped water otherwise could continue to soak into and destroy wood framing and insulation.

If the water reached areas where your home features carpeting, rely on the specialized training our employees have to remove the water and prevent mold or mildew from growing. SERVPRO crews use weighted wanded extractors to dry carpeting in place when the water involved is Category 1. We often remove and replace padding to speed the drying process and guard against the possibility of lingering moisture that supports microbial growth if left for more than 24 to 48 hours.

SERVPRO of Southeast Tucson / Sahuarita / Green Valley has the equipment and technicians at the ready if your home experiences internal water invasion from leaks or breakdowns. Call  (520) 648-7360 to schedule an assessment within the first hours of your water emergency.
