Does your Ahwatukee Home Have a Mold Problem?

7/7/2016 (Permalink)

Mold Damage

In Ahwatukee, mold can spread through a home in as little as 48 hours.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Ahwatukee & South Tempe Smoke and Soot Cleanup

7/7/2016 (Permalink)

Fire Damage

Smoke and Soot Damage Can Cause a Pervasive Odor in Your Tempe Home.

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Ahwatukee & South Tempe will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

What makes SERVPRO the BEST!

3/4/2016 (Permalink)

Being a member of the SERVPRO system is like being a part of a big family. There are members who are close, far away, city people, rural folk and of course that one odd Uncle nobody is sure where he comes from. That and we have big reunions each Summer where we reconnect with old friends and make new friends.

Recently, I was getting out of my bed before first light in warm Arizona, kissing my wife and kids goodbye and heading to Sky Harbor for a flight to Nashville, TN. Let's just say I was not very excited to leave. I love Phoenix, I love the weather here, I love the food here and mostly I love my family. 

The reason I was leaving this all to go someplace it actually snows and has no Mexican food? SERVPRO's "Franchise Management" course. Every 5 years, franchise owners are required to spend a week at our corporate headquarters in Gallatin, TN for training, on top of needing continuing education credits in the meantime to make sure our certifications are compliant. 

I quickly realized once I stepped into our corporate headquarters, that I could miss my home for 1 week for the benefit of our customers and employees. I quickly saw what makes SERVPRO the best. In one room we had people who had been in the restoration industry for over 40 years, we had people who had performed multi-million dollar floods, equipment experts, strange situation experts, etc. If there was a question about our industry there was an answer in that room. 

Over the course of the week, our corporate staff updated on anything that might have changed since we last visited and the franchise owners had roundtables to help each other find better ways to serve our customers and help our employees. 

With over 1500 franchises in the country all looking out for each other and a phone call away, how could anyone be better? It doesn't matter if you need to borrow a bit of advice from a franchise 5 miles away or a fully loaded tractor trailer full of commercial drying equipment, a family helps each other. That is what makes SERVPRO the best!
