Mold Remediation Don't Let Mold Be A Liability Call The Experts At SERVPRO For Help In Tempe Business owners need to protect their properties from mold infestation, and certified mold cleanup professionals in Tempe can help.

Reduce Your Liability With Commercial Mold Cleanup Services In Tempe

Owners of office buildings in Tempe need to ensure that the spaces they rent to their tenants are continually maintained in suitable condition. Allowing damage to accumulate can lead to claims of problems related to such damage. Past claims have sometimes concluded with settlements or awards in the millions of dollars.

Business owners need to protect their properties from mold infestation, and certified mold cleanup professionals in Tempe can help. We can provide you with an experienced eye for what allows such problems to exist in the first place in your property, what makes the problem worse, and how to prevent it after we finish with remediation and mold cleanup.

Microorganisms like mold and mildew require moisture's presence. They naturally cannot grow without some form of humidity, water vapor, or water. We use thermal imaging cameras that instantly reveal any moisture held in walls and ceilings. Once located, we check each area with a moisture meter that shows the amount of moisture as a percentage.

We chart these findings for later use during cleanup procedures. Reasonable amounts for such materials are often located on a universal sheet or dry materials, giving us a range to work toward with our desiccant machines. When such materials exist in your building but not on the sheet, we note the moisture content of similar materials elsewhere in your property that do not hold any excess moisture.

While it is true that exposure to mold can cause health effects, these vary between individuals greatly. A licensed medical provider with experience in such health concerns requires an examination of anyone claiming health effects before making a diagnosis. However, our experts can provide you with guidance on how to discuss mold cleanup with your tenants and what they can do to help make sure the problem does not return as quickly. When necessary, we can work within your tenants' office spaces as discretely as possible. We understand that their business operations do best with as little interruption as possible.

SERVPRO of East Phoenix can help reduce your liability and address tenant concerns about microbial infestations. Our IICRC-certified employees have experience in performing mold cleanup in different settings and can get this completed for you quickly and efficiently. Contact us at (602) 507-6163 any day of the year, 24 hours a day.

Phoenix Homes Receive the SERVPRO Treatment After a Water Loss

Why SERVPRO Phoenix Homes Receive the SERVPRO Treatment After a Water Loss Don't Let Water and the Sands of Time Ruin Your Phoenix Home--Call SERVPRO

SERVPRO Specialists and Your Home's Water Damage Mitigation Needs in Phoenix

SERVPRO technicians understand the manner in which water can damage your home's interior in Phoenix. Because of its inherent properties, water can end up in almost any location in your home. It does not require a significant leak or broken pipe for problems to start occurring. A burst water line to your refrigerator can create extensive destruction.
 
When your Phoenix kitchen suffers water damage, and it then spreads to other areas of your property, SERVPRO technicians use their IICRC training to get things right again. Water can damage carpeting and padding, the floorboards underneath, and create odors that you most likely find highly unpleasant.
 
Our team starts with a thorough inspection to locate all sources of water and then tracks that water down. Evaporation also plays a role in how water causes damage to the materials inside your home. Our technicians receive training on how to use various pieces of equipment that reveal not only where moisture exists, but also how much moisture materials contain. This is crucial to restoring your home, so it is again “Like it never even happened.”
 
Our drying equipment includes air movers that increase the air circulation at an extremely high rate and also pulls dampness off of surfaces. This works quite efficiently because water continually moves to find equilibrium, moving into drier areas, and this forces additional moisture to move closer to the surface.
 
Our desiccant machines remove water vapor from the air as it passes through the device, continually extracting moisture from the air. Drier air can more easily absorb water vapor from damp materials than saturated air. We are always working to remove moisture.
 
Different style heaters come into use to help increase the rate of evaporation of water from materials. We use these on floors, the interiors of walls, and other places that need a little more help in drying out.
 
Wherever water causes damage inside your home, SERVPRO technicians can mitigate the damage. We always treat your home in a professional manner, just like we would want others to handle our own dwellings.
 
You can trust SERVPRO of East Phoenix to take care of the many ways that water damage might affect your home's interior. Contact us at (602) 507-6163, our 24-hour service line number, so we can assist you in restoring your home.

Ultimate Solution to Phoenix Mold Damage Remediation

10/7/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Ultimate Solution to Phoenix Mold Damage Remediation Team SERVPRO will investigate the cause of any mold damage in your home before remediation. Call us right away.

Proper Cleaning can Limit Mold Damage in Phoenix

Mold proliferation is more than just a visual nuisance because the fungi can eat into the affected surface, causing structural damages. When it develops in hidden spaces such as wall cavities, its musty smell affects the air quality of your Phoenix property. Depending on the material in the affected area, you can use various approaches to deal with the mold infestation before it goes out of control. Our professional remediation services can help you find a long-term solution to the problem you are facing.
 
Mold damage in Phoenix properties is severe if porous materials are affected. In those cases, the most likely solution is the replacement of the material since it is hard to eliminate the deeply penetrated hyphae. Replacement is also necessary if there are signs of rot. No matter how thorough cleanup is, it cannot restore structural integrity.
 
For nonporous surfaces or cases of light infestations, cleaning can help restore the affected areas to preloss condition. Since mold can also develop on items such as furniture, cleanup is part of the process even after removing some materials. Using the right chemical agents helps boost the effectiveness of the cleaning procedures. Our SERVPRO technicians inspect the affected area to determine which cleaning products to use.
 
If the infestation affects fabrics such as draperies or upholstery, cleaning them helps. Our SERVPRO technicians can use a bleach such as chlorine because it works effectively against mold. It also removes any stains caused by the infestation. We check the material first before remediation starts because chlorine can damage wool and silk. We also avoid it if there are rust stains on the material because it makes such stains set rather than removing them.
 
The selected cleaning product should be inexpensive and effective for different types of mold. Our SERVPRO technicians use phenolics on most surfaces. These are alcohol based agents that we dilute with water to clean mold residue from surfaces. We can also fog them to eliminate infestations in hidden spaces.
 
Early remediation helps prevent stubborn mold infestations. Call SERVPRO of East Phoenix at (602) 507-6163. We are available every day to offer assistance and advice.

Water Damage Your Eyes and Ears Can Mitigate Water Damages to Your Property in Phoenix--SERVPRO Great Advice Look and Listen for Leaks and Drips, Then Call SERVPRO for Cleanup in Your Phoenix Property

Mitigating Water Damage from Faulty Plumbing

When it comes to water damage, the speed of water removal is the key. Problems from faulty plumbing can escalate very quickly--from bad to worse. Not only can the water destroy your furnishings and property structure but it can lead to mold growth.
 
As a homeowner, it is wise not to procrastinate from having a faulty plumbing leak repaired right away. To prevent further damage and protect the safety of your family, you need a company that can help avert further water damage to your Phoenix property. When disaster strikes, quick mitigation from our experts can prevent further damage giving you peace of mind. Also, it can save you money associated with extensive and expensive repairs to your property.
 
SERVPRO technicians are IICRC certified and can clean up and restore your home. We utilize state of the art water extraction equipment and monitor the drying process to ensure we achieve our drying goals. This protocol is done to ensure your property is dried to standard levels of moisture content which helps prevent the growth of mold. Whether it is day or night, our team is always ready to respond to emergencies and reduce water damage to your home.
 
As a homeowner, there are a few actions you can take to prevent a water loss to your property. Start by disconnecting outside hoses immediately after use. Water pressure buildup can lead to ruptured plumbing lines within the structure. Check the connections to your appliances and fixtures for drips and leaks periodically. Keeps your eyes opened for water spills and your ears listening for drips or gushes.
 
Even the smallest of water leaks can worsen the condition of your house. Rapid repairs reduce the damage and the expense associated with restoration. Monitoring your water bill is another option you can consider. If you become accustomed to performing the usual chores --washing dishes, taking showers, doing laundry and watering your plants, then you are aware of water usage. Keeping an eye on the monthly bill can reveal a sudden increase in usage from a leak.
 
Talk to our SERVPRO water damage specialists about other methods of preventing future water losses to your property. After removing the unwanted water and moisture using industry-leading extraction and dehumidifying equipment, we can document the results to help with your insurance claim.

Dedicated Water Removal Services to Restore Your Phoenix Home

If your property experiences a water damage incident, then you need professional water removal services. It is easy to understand why all Americans are encouraged to develop a game plan this September - the National Preparedness Month - and make sure their loved ones are safe. For instance, as a resident of Phoenix, you can encourage your kids to download Monster Guard app - a free app that guides children on preparedness by playing an exciting game.
 
When our SERVPRO technicians are performing water removal in Phoenix, we must first determine whether the water is from a clean or contaminated source. If the water is from a contaminated source, we eliminate safety hazards to ensure the restoration process is smooth. We also stay protected by using appropriate PPE - such as rubber gloves, full-body suits, boots, eye protection, and respirators.
 
Once we establish there is a hazardous waste at the site, we have to remove it as soon as we can. Any debris or silt that contains asbestos or lead is regarded as hazardous waste. With the help of rakes and shovels, we can remove the silt. If there is a danger of spreading the contaminants to clean areas, then we may be forced to put in place containment measures. For instance, the introduction of negative pressure at the site can prevent the movement of mold spores to the surrounding uncontaminated areas.
 
By using the extractors, our SERVPRO technicians can remove excess water from the flooring and carpets. Usually, we dispose and recommend a replacement when we come across porous items that are exposed to black water contamination. Even after drying, these items can still retain some contaminants within their spaces. After cleaning the affected areas, we can also apply EPA-registered disinfectants to sterilize the surfaces and lower chances of mold growth.
 
At SERVPRO of East Phoenix, we use advanced cleaning and restoration equipment to return your commercial or residential property to its preloss state. Call us at (602) 507-6163 at any time of the day and allow our highly trained technicians to offer you quality and dedicated emergency services.
