Return Your Home To Pre-Flood ConditionEliminate odor & remove water damage with our stellar Tucson flood cleanup and odor recovery services!
Everything we love about Tucson—the mountains, the amazing thunderstorms, the wildflowers in the arroyos—is balanced by the risk of high water in monsoon season. We embrace that risk because life in southern Arizona is worth it. Some risks, like improperly restoring water damage in your home, aren’t worth taking.
Do you have a plan for cleaning up your home if you’re hit with flooding? What will you do if a plumbing appliance breaks, causing water damage to your floors, walls, and ceilings?
Prepare for flooding of any type with these three steps:
Know how and where to shut off your water main.
Know where to shut off your main electric breaker.
Keep a wrench, your insurance agent’s contact information and our phone number handy. Call us at 520.245.3284 as soon as possible after a flood so we can help you minimize the damage.
If you’ve recently had flood water enter your home or water damage due to plumbing problems or defective appliances, it is imperative to find all of the moisture trapped within floors, walls, and ceilings as soon as possible. The first few hours are absolutely vital as mold can quickly become a significant problem if left untreated. According to the EPA, after a flood “it is important to dry water-damaged areas and items within 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth.”
Mold and bacteria from flooding cause serious health issues, including asthma, allergies, skin and eye irritation, and can cause serious complications in pregnant women. Other health issues associated with mold include headaches, respiratory infections, chronic fatigue. Infants, the elderly and those with pre-existing allergies or asthma are at higher risk of these issues when mold is present in the home.
Unchecked moisture, fungus, and mold slowly destroy the structural integrity of your property. Water damage affects framing, insulation, drywall, wiring and the metal hardware that keeps it all together. In addition to warped wood floors and soaked carpets, water left behind after flooding or inexperienced cleanup efforts rots subfloors and load-bearing joists. Water damage prevents doors and windows from operating properly and can undermine your foundation.
Vents and ductwork become the perfect incubator for fungus and mold spores if they’re not cleared of residual water and condensation. Moisture left behind by non-professional cleaners allows odors and mildew permeate the rest of your belongings, including your clothing and furniture.
Unabated, water damage will ruin more than your health and home; it will affect your peace of mind as you worry about developing issues in places you can’t see.
