Texas Storms

3/16/2021 (Permalink)

In the biggest winter storm Texas has seen in several years, SERVPROs across the country responded in aid. For days, millions of Texans went without power due to subfreezing temperatures that overwhelmed the state’s electricity infrastructure and caused massive power outages. As a result, at least 57 people died across the state and, at the height of the crisis, nearly 4.5 million Texas homes and businesses were without power. With the capability and capacity to provide aid, SERVPRO of Gilbert, Chandler South, Ahwatukee and South Tempe felt it was our responsibility to offer help. Therefore, we set up a base-of-operations in Austin, TX and began to reach out to households throughout Travis County; offering our services to those who's homes or commercial properties incurred damage.

To date, we have crews located in Austin working around the clock to mitigate the disastrous effects of the 2021 winter storms and we intend to remain in the area until the need for assistance returns to levels more manageable for local cleaning and restoration companies to address. It is because of our dedication to our neighbors and our aim to provide efficient and effective services in times of need that people choose SERVPRO.

How We Treat COVID-19 Differently

9/21/2020 (Permalink)

When your home or business is exposed to COVID-19, there often follow feelings of uncertainty and stress. And, unfortunately, the virus may retain the ability to infect you or others who come into contact and proceed to touch their eyes, nose, or mouth. SERVPRO of Gilbert, Chandler South, Ahwatukee and South Tempe recognizes the danger and anxiety that stems from these situations and does all we can to alleviate your concerns by providing thorough disinfections for your residential and commercial properties. Therein, lies the difference between SERVPRO and other disinfection services. Our commitment to a complete clean means that you are as safe as possible in the areas you should feel most secure.

When disinfecting, SERVPRO of Gilbert, Chandler South, Ahwatukee and South Tempe approaches each job with the appropriate PPE equipment to keep both you and our team safe. We then spray a high-volume mist of highly-concentrated disinfectant which affects nearly the entirety of the area; immediately attacking the virus where it remains. After a 10 minute dwelling period, we follow and wipe down all high-touch surfaces with the same disinfectant. Furthermore, we mop the floors, discard open food or drink items that have been exposed to the disinfecting mist, and spray a lemon-berry scent meant to dispel the unpleasant smell of disinfectant. 

Oftentimes with disinfecting services, you receive no more than a generalized mist throughout the property. Although this is not ineffective, it is not the thorough approach we prioritize. In our method of disinfecting, we aim to ensure that every surface is treated and that the chance of you contracting COVID-19 from your living or working space is minimized to the furthest possible extent.

SERVPRO In Your Community

7/7/2020 (Permalink)

As a cleaning and restoration company, it is not necessary that we take an interest in maintaining our role as partners in the community. Or that we strive to improve the wellbeing of those beyond our client base. However, we envision our name as one which can also be paired with terms such as “care,” “respect,” and “reliability.” We exist within a larger context and it important to us that we acknowledge that.

SERVPRO of Gilbert, Chandler South, Ahwatukee South Tempe came under new leadership 4 years ago with the introduction of new owners, Tom Curran and Jim Tax. Formerly working in insurance, they both understand the importance of remembering the strength of the community and the client. Further, they do not forget the two are paired; and that it is necessary to support one to strengthen the other.

As a company which has actively taken steps to maintain the health and safety of first responders following COVID-19, encouraged donations to local food banks, rallied members of the community to support those in need of medical assistance, and made every effort to ease the burden of those who have suffered damage to their homes or businesses, we are with you. Trust SERVPRO because we strive to be more than a cleaning and restoration company. We strive to be a community partner and advocate.

Because Water Doesn’t Wait

5/26/2020 (Permalink)

We at SERVPRO know that flooding and water emergencies do not cater to your schedule. They do not wait for regular business hours or halt for holidays so, neither do we. Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, you can always expect an immediate response and instant action from our team.

Within minutes of excessive water exposure, water spreads throughout the property and soaks everything in its path. For as long as it remains, the affected areas continue to decline; permanently damaging furniture, floors, and walls as belongings are equally compromised. The damage that a home could sustain is extensive and increases in severity for every minute it remains. A part of SERVPRO’s overall goal is to minimize the initial damage to your home with constant availability and immediate response times; thus, decreasing the cost of remediation and easing you of stress.

Furthermore, alongside our commitment to ensuring speedy remediation of the damage sustained to your home or business, we are equipped with state-of-the-art technologies and techniques; certifying a thorough and high-quality resolution to your water emergency.

When your home or business is affected by water damage or a flood, trust SERVPRO of Gilbert, Chandler South, Ahwatukee and South Tempe to prioritize your needs and provide the immediate help you and your property deserve – 24/7/365.

Planning A Summer Migration?

5/4/2020 (Permalink)

Desert Scape As you are leaving your desert home...

In time the migration back to summer homes will begin. Over the next several weeks, you can prep your Arizona abode for your departure. 

Here is a list of things to do leading up to the time you leave. 

• Go to your local post office. Make arrangements for your mail or any regular deliveries to be forwarded to your new location. The post office does recommend that giving them notice least ten days to the effective date. 
• Contact your newspaper. Let them know when to stop and resume your service. 
• Contact telephone, Internet service provider, and cable or satellite TV provider to put your service on hold until you return.
• If you have an HOA in your community, notify them when you will be leaving and returning . Likewise, let friends and neighbors in the community know, as well. Enlist the help of a neighbor if you do not have a home service provider to check on your property from time to time. It is one more set of eyes on your property. Leave a list of your preferred list of contractors with contact information. 
• Consider storing any valuables and important documents that you are leaving in a safe deposit box.
• Coordinate emptying of the refrigerator with trash and recycling pickup. Begin cleaning out the fridge and cabinets of items that will expire or are not stored in airtight containers.
• Landscape maintenance –Desert plants love the heat and will grow quickly and out of control. Make sure that all of the yard debris is cleaned and transported away. When possible, contract a landscaper that you know and trust that will maintain your summer landscaping and sprinkler system. 
• Summer in Arizona can be the perfect storm of wildfires and monsoons. If a wash is close to your property, make sure that the desert plants are maintained, so there is not a direct path to your home in the event of a fire. 
• Pool and hot tub maintenance. Enlist the help of a reputable pool service. Set expectations for pool and hot tub maintenance. Making sure the heat is off, but the pumps are good working conditions. 
• Check the exterior of your home and the roof. The summer monsoons are a real event in Arizona. The amount of rain and intensity of the storm can vary. They can be very intense, leaving your home a target for high winds, hard rain, flooding, and the potential for debris to impact your home. Make sure that your contractor checks the exterior of your home and roof before you leave. Call your roofer to assess the roof’s ability to survive the strong storm activity.
• Whether you live in a single-family home or a condo, owners should have the main water valve shut off. This can prevent flooding in your home. Contact a local plumber to make sure that this action will not impact your sprinkler system and ensure it will not lead standing water in or around your home. Ask about your water softener if you have one. Find out any steps you need to take to ensure it is in proper working order when you return. 
• Check all appliances to make sure that all maintenance has been done. Empty your refrigerator and garbage to prevent mold, bugs, and rodents from being attracted to your home. 
• Contact your local pest control company. Make sure that they keep your maintenance inside and outside up to date before you leave.
• Do not forget to make sure that all lights, fans, televisions, appliances, entertainment systems, etc. are unplugged.  Open the doors to the washing machine, dryer, and dishwasher – this can prevent mold and mildew.
• Have your HVAC professional check your air conditioner before you leave. Ask them for a recommended temperature while you are away. Most will recommend between 85 and 90 degrees. 
• Make sure that you replace the batteries of any backup systems you may have. Some may include, security systems, thermostats, fire and carbon monoxide detectors
• Remove and combustible or flammable materials from the garage. This can help in preventing a fire. 
• As you are walking out the door, turn off your water heater off to prevent potential water damage.

Gilbert Monsoon Season--Get Ready for Help from SERVPRO, and Fast!

SERVPRO of Gilbert Is Here to Help During Monsoon Season

Why SERVPRO Provides Emergency Support to Gilbert Residents during Monsoon Season

Between June and September, Arizona is subject to the monsoon season. These periods can be particularly arduous for homeowners as heavy rainfall alongside storms can expose any structural weaknesses. We operate an emergency response unit during this time of year to help the community with flash flooding, storm damages or other personal property harm.

Our technicians are capable of performing necessary mitigation to limit the loss and employ advanced equipment to help residents with the Monsoon Season in Gilbert. As a restorer, one of our primary duties is to enter a property after damages and perform timely remediation task that can significantly limit losses. Straight line winds can shear off roofs requiring fast service to cover them with blue tarps and plywood temporarily. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster; this means we can mitigate water and wind damage from punctured roofs.

A flash flood, from a monsoon, for example, can result in power lines being shut-off at the source. We are capable of restoring the power to property or bringing in a temporary generator to allow contractors to perform remodeling or rebuilding works. SERVPRO can also conduct a thorough risk assessment, noting potential hazards, checking the strength of floors and staircases to make sure there is a safe workspace for anyone entering the property.

It is also during this initial inspection that we carry out some of our most important tasks designed to mitigate loss. Standing water causes more damage the longer it is allowed to sit. We can perform timely water removal services using gas-pumps, extraction units, and advanced drying methods to ensure the prevention of permanent losses.

In the right conditions, microbes present in water can quickly result in the proliferation of mold colonies. Our job is to ensure that does not happen by controlling humidity levels, drying the property and then treating it with anti-microbial chemicals, biocides or sanitizers. SERVPRO act quickly to carry out these tasks because they can lead to a significant reduction in property damages during the monsoon season.

Our emergency response units are available round the clock for emergency services during June and September. Contact SERVPRO of Gilbert at (480) 558-7620 anytime, twenty-four hours a day.

How Can You Prepare for Monsoons in San Tan Valley?

4/3/2019 (Permalink)

You can trust the SERVPRO Brand to restore your monsoon damaged home.

Preparing for San Tan Valley Monsoon Flood Damage Risk is Why SERVPRO Should Be On Your Speed Dial

It usually is impossible to predict just how severe the San Tan Valley monsoon season will be each year. Usually, homes maintain their integrity, shedding any rain and avoiding the damage high winds can bring. Some summers bring more intense weather systems, with higher rainfall and stronger winds. Not knowing this year’s outcome is why we prepare for the worst to help our customers.

If your home is in the path of a particularly fierce or protracted monsoon system, the flood damage to your dwelling in San Tan Valley can be significant. Our mission is to be ready to respond to any disaster suffered by our customers. We commit to seeking out and supporting the best training for our crews. The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, Restoration, and Certification courses completed by our team explains why we deliver industry-leading restoration results.

Homeowners can take steps to prepare for the harm swift waters and high winds can bring to their abodes. Keeping roofs and gutter drainage systems in good repair are proactive efforts that pay dividends, directing rain off the shell of your home and away from your foundation. Readying for the worse is why SERVPRO recommends evaluating your storage decisions with an eye to a potentially catastrophic monsoon season.

When a pipe breaks, the water damage can happen very quickly. React fast by calling SERVPRO for water removal and remediation services.

Leaking Fixtures Could Allow Water Damage to Gilbert Homes

Indoor plumbing has revolutionized the world and is a staple for every Gilbert home constructed over nearly the past century. Surprisingly enough, many of the older homes still feature the same fixtures, connections, and piping used in the original construction. While this might provide a vintage feel and attest to the craftsmanship of plumbing in days gone by, it also presents an ever-present threat for adverse conditions or pressure differences to strain elbows and joints until leaks form. A steady leak unseen can cause widespread damages to your home.

While you might not be able to identify the full measure of water damage to your Gilbert home from a steady leak from your plumbing or its fixtures, once you recognize an issue, it is likely that an even greater area has gotten affected in wall cavities where the bulk of the piping is hidden. When you encounter water damage like this, you need effective mitigation and restoration solutions that can happen as soon as you need them. That is why our SERVPRO rapid response team remains available 24/7 to address emergencies as they happen to any property within our service area.

We have advanced technology to help us identify leaks and moisture pockets in areas difficult to assess without demolition or controlled tear out. With thermal imagery cameras, we can determine where damp areas are inside of wall cavities and into other materials to designate the best locations for drying equipment like air movers and dehumidifiers. Severe moisture pockets could require the use of injectidry systems that feed hot air directly into these cavities to expedite the drying process.

Aging pipes in your home can ultimately cause problems when the wear and tear catch up to the weakest connection points. No matter how long pipes have been in service, our SERVPRO of Gilbert water restoration technicians can help you to restore the damage they can cause when things do go wrong. Give our experienced professionals a call anytime that you notice water damage by calling (480) 558-7620.
