Fire Damage How SERVPRO Uses Restorative Cleaning to Remediate Fire Damage in Phoenix SERVPRO has what it takes to restore your fire damaged home.

Crucial Steps During Fire Cleanup in Phoenix that Lead to a Positive Outcome

Cleaning up property after a fire incident is essential to remove debris and other wastes left by the fire. A home is no longer a comfortable place with such debris spread all over its confines. Restorative cleaning, on the other hand, provides a cheaper fix compared to replacement. There is a need to take several steps for a proper cleaning exercise in Phoenix.  

Flames and heat scorch many items leaving a considerable amount of debris to deal with during fire cleanup in Phoenix. Collecting and removing the items from the property is not difficult. However, some items might only be covered in soot and not physically damaged, so it is necessary to sort them to avoid throwing out salvageable items. Our SERVPRO technicians sort the affected contents into groups of salvageable, unsalvageable and questionable items. We dispose of unsalvageable items then clean up the questionable and salvageable ones.  

Smoke residues accumulate on various surfaces. Sometimes they also penetrate beyond the surface because the heat from the fire opens up pores allowing convection currents to drive them further. Capturing and removing such residues requires different actions including agitation, chemical action and in some cases temperature to speed up the process. Our SERVPRO technicians use dry cleaning methods such as wiping with a sponge or vacuuming the affected areas. We also use wet cleaning approaches that utilize professional cleaning agents and equipment such as pressure washers.  

It is common for bad odors to linger after cleaning up fire-damaged properties. In some cases, it is possible to remove the smell by ventilating the property. However, most cases require elaborate deodorization efforts. Our SERVPRO technicians combine multiple approaches to deal with all malodors. We can spray chemical deodorizers directly on odor causing materials to prevent odor molecules from escaping into the air. Fogging the affected property helps release deodorizers in tiny particles, which penetrate materials just like the malodors and then neutralize them by changing their chemical composition. We also use special deodorization equipment such as Ozone and Hydroxyl generators.  

To make your property habitable again after fire damage, call SERVPRO of East Phoenix to help you clean it up. You can reach us at (602) 507-6163 any time. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

How SERVPRO Professionals Restore Phoenix Homes After Water Damage

Water Damage How SERVPRO Professionals Restore Phoenix Homes After Water Damage Don't try and fix things yourself this can lead to more damages in your home. Our certified technicians are available 24/7 to help you.

SERVPRO - Water Damage Restoration For Phoenix Neighborhoods

Phoenix homeowners rarely consider water a disaster. Lack of water and the sun turning their home to ash in the summer, yes, but never have so much water that it damages their home.

Phoenix homes are as vulnerable to faulty plumbing so water damage does happen. When it does, SERVPRO response teams can return them to a dry, clean condition, ready for occupation once more.

After removing any standing water, our team members look more closely at floors and walls. Most plumbing problems do not put a large amount of water across the home, but if it happens over a weekend or longer period when no one is present, wood floors and other materials can absorb enough to cause them to warp, crack, and crumble after water damage.

A wood floor can be a beautiful aspect of any home interior, but it can be at risk. SERVPRO technicians use a moisture meter to see if there is too much water and if there is, takes steps to remove it. They lift boards to use a hose and vacuum to draw out any water trapped in the sub-floor. After that, they dry any affected floorboards with two devices, a dehumidifier, and an air mover.

With the dehumidifier, they carefully draw moisture out of the surrounding air. Reducing the humidity level increases natural evaporation. Technicians can adjust the temperature and flow of the air mover to force out moisture from the wood without causing any splitting or cracking of the wood.

For walls, our team members often have to remove and replace drywall panels when they absorb too much water. It is an excellent building material, but panels can dissolve and crumble in place when they become soaked. If they did not absorb too much, our technicians direct the flow of an air mover across the panels to carefully dry them while still in place. If needed, technicians remove the floor trim and drill holes to allow for water drainage and then use a hose to direct the flow from an air mover behind the wall to dry out both the panels and the wall framing.

These first steps help SERVPRO of East Phoenix return every home to a safe, livable condition once more. If your water heater failed, or a pipe split recently, call us at (602) 507-6163 so we can do the same for you.

Access To Mold Damage Mitigation Services That Help You Maintain Your Phoenix Area Home Properly

Why SERVPRO Access To Mold Damage Mitigation Services That Help You Maintain Your Phoenix Area Home Properly  Phoenix Homes with Mold Damage Call on SERVPRO for Remediation

SERVPRO Can Reduce Treatment Time and Costs with Fast Mold Remediation

After discovering mold on your Phoenix area property, you might wonder if calling a professional remediation company is necessary, or if everyone is over-reacting. Well, considering that some species of mold can cause health effects, we tend to lean more towards dealing with the problem quickly, rather than leaving anything to chance. 

Mold damage can make your Phoenix-area property look more like a war zone than a happy home and the longer you wait to address the situation, the longer the remediation process can take. Under some circumstances, you may even find yourself looking for temporary housing, which would leave anyone annoyed, depressed, and concerned.

Unfortunately, the dangers are real. Even though mold is a naturally occurring fungus, used by our environment to recycle a variety of materials back into our ecosystem, larger concentrations may cause harm. Mold only needs water, air, and a food source to begin a growth cycle in your home, making it somewhat easy for this problem to exist.

Since oxygen is everywhere and your home is made up of several organic materials, it only takes a small water leak, spill, or accident to get things started. SERVPRO technicians help you understand how to make your home healthier, by improving ventilation and controlling the relative humidity found in your home. Your indoor humidity level should remain below 50% at all times, even when you are on vacation or away for extended periods.

You can avoid spending considerable amounts of money having your home tested for mold. The species of mold that exists in your home is not relevant regarding remediation. It is better to have your home inspected by a qualified professional, like SERVPRO’s IICRC certified mold remediation technicians, who have the personnel, equipment, and experience to show you where mold starts and help you learn how to react if or when you find it. 

SERVPRO mold remediation services help you control your indoor living environment and prevent mold growth from returning. If you contact us at the earliest signs of mold growth in your home, you can ensure minimal disruption to your daily life.

Why SERVPRO Water Removal in Phoenix Preserves and Protects You and Your Property  SERVPRO Removes and Cleans Carpets in Phoenix After Water Leaks

Call on SERVPRO for Extraction and Cleanup After Problems in Your Phoenix Home

Whether it is a residential or commercial property, water damage can be very frustrating, and you need to remove it promptly. Ensuring your residence is completely dry when you are not working with a company like SERVPRO can be challenging.

Phoenix has encountered a lot of water removal problems in the recent past. These issues often disrupt your daily operations and the comfortable feeling of your premises. You may have tried to contain this problem on your own and quickly found out how frustrating that can be. The secret lies in using the right equipment which you probably do not have stored in your garage.
 
At SERVPRO, we use a lot of air moving equipment because of their effectiveness. Let us take the example of water removal from your carpet, any other method can take a lot of time and may not produce good results. The air movement equipment, however, increases evaporation primarily by creating airflow on the surface level, forcing the moisture into the air and capturing it with dehumidifiers. This process is not only safe and reliable, but also pretty fast. 
 
Apart from the type of equipment we use, the chemical products at SERVPRO are safe and environmentally friendly. Some of the chemicals you use at home are also not active enough to kill all the different varieties of bacteria and fungi. You need professional service to ensure your premise is cleared of any impurities and does not affect your health.

One of the primary reasons why water removal is a nightmare to many is the lack of a reliable extraction equipment. Naturally, the first step to cleaning is removing water from your floors. Extractors from SERVPRO included wet-vacs, portable pumps and truck-mounted equipment for large volume extraction. The portable extractor is excellent for accessing areas that are hard to reach. 
 
SERVPRO of East Phoenix is your best solution as far as water removal is concerned. With our qualified staff, you are guaranteed excellence services at the best possible price. Call us today at (602) 507-6163 and let us take care of your water removal needs.

Moments in Family History Require Crime Scene Cleanup in Phoenix

Why SERVPRO Moments in Family History Require Crime Scene Cleanup in Phoenix SERVPRO Makes Crime Scene Cleanup in Phoenix Easier

Trust SERVPRO for Empathetic Crime Scene Cleanup

Violent crime is increasing in many areas of the Nation, and statistics are beginning to point toward more and more families having someone close to them be a victim of senseless, brutal criminal activity. When a person is murdered, or just simply dies alone, the immediate area can be left in a highly contaminated state.

Surviving family members in Phoenix need professionals who can empathize with their pain while providing the necessary services inherent to crime scene cleanup procedures. Without both of these factors, families can suffer for longer, more intense periods than families who find professionals who help them cope with the complex and harsh realities of the immediate situation. 
 
We train our technicians to be more than the average professional restoring homes and businesses. They understand that it is vital always to give those left behind by the death, particularly a violent and unexpected one, of a loved member of their family, the compassion they need and deserve. To do otherwise would create an additional injury for the grieving family members. Moreover, we are also members of this community.
 
Minimizing the amount of confusion that cleaning up after the police and coroner's staff have left can often be aided by having one specific person on our team designated to both inform the family of any new developments and answer any of their questions. The death (if there was such an unfortunate occurrence), the scene, strangers in and out of the home, the neighbors, distant relatives, the ongoing questions, and the emotional toll, all contribute to the stress. Cleaning the scene should be the last thing you and your family need to worry about in situations like this. 
 
The IICRC has recently published internationally accepted standards, protocols, and procedures that provide protections for affected families and technicians for use in cleaning up locations where criminal activity occurred. Moreover, other highly sensitive situations exist. While this is a newly published document, the contents were largely known to those companies, such as SERVPRO, with experience in handling materials that were potentially hazardous to the environment or human health. 
 
At SERVPRO of East Phoenix, we understand that losing a family member to any cause can be devastating. When that death is part of a heinous crime, the trauma and senselessness are much greater than what many realize. We can help your family by ensuring any crime scene cleanup is carried out professionally by compassionate and qualified technicians. Whenever your family needs help with a traumatic experience such as this, call us at (602) 507-6163. We are always available to answer the phone and take your call.

When Mold Becomes and Unwanted Accessory at Your Phoenix Clothing Store

2/25/2019 (Permalink)

Commercial When Mold Becomes and Unwanted Accessory at Your Phoenix Clothing Store Mold damages everything it touches. Call SERVPRO of East Phoenix to remediate your mold.

At SERVPRO, We Tailor Our Mold Remediation Services to Clothing Stores in Phoenix

You should always seek professional mold remediation services for your clothing store in Phoenix as soon as possible after you identify signs of fungal growth. Some types of mold can cause health effects, so to avoid health code violations and keep customers feeling safe and welcome in your store, you should never ignore the problem and hope for it to go away on its own. SERVPRO provides fast and thorough mold remediation services for businesses in need.  Through several cost-saving measures, we can keep expenses low and restoration times fast to help your business quickly recover.

Industrial Washing

One unique aspect of mold remediation for clothing stores in the Phoenix area that we have encountered before is the possibility of widespread mold damage in the store's inventory. While garments free of growth do not need washing, those that have been touched by mold must be either washed or thrown out. Our industrial washing machines can handle this task quickly and at minimal cost, potentially eliminating some of the financial losses from tainted items.

Advanced Detection

Our SERVPRO inspectors can evaluate the building quickly to determine how far the mold has spread. Both through their experience built over years of identifying and treating colonies and our new moisture detection tools such as infrared scanners, we can paint an exceptionally detailed picture of the infestation, even if it lies primarily behind walls and in other places hidden from view.

Fast Work Speeds

Every time we take on a mold remediation project for a local business, we understand that we must race against the clock to ensure that doors reopen with as little delay as possible to keep revenue coming in and the company afloat. We waste no time in removing all signs of infestation from the area, from physical growth on surfaces to the sometimes overwhelming smell that some species of fungi can produce. We also make sure never to let speed impede the thoroughness of our work, and we take care always to use sanitizing equipment such as UV ray projectors to return the area to a safe and secure place for customers and employees alike.

SERVPRO of East Phoenix stays ready on a 24/7 basis to help out local businesses that discover signs of mold damage on their premises. Call us at (602) 507-6163 for our services or a quote.
