The weather here in Tucson, AZ has finally cooled down! Though no one expects a white Christmas either, it is nice to finally be able enjoy more of the day outside.

Our certified technicians will not only bring the right tools and equipment but will definitely bring ease to your stress.

Losing my best friend!
We got the worst news this past week… Our chocolate lab Nial has bone cancer. I was shocked and asked myself “How can a dog get bone cancer?” He has lived 5 very luxurious years with my family and me. Though we expect things like this to happen every once in a while, we are never really prepared to say goodbye to any family member like this. How unfair and how sad! This is very difficult for all of us seeing him in such pain, but I must be a responsible owner and let him go. He was the best dog any family could ever have had. He will be missed by our family and those who knew him. R.I.P. Nial, You were a loyal friend.
People, Pets & Photographs
What I learned from the floods in Houston is what is really important, People, Pets, and Photographs. We have become collectors of Stuff!!! Countless people where crying about the loss of stuff!!! After a quiet talk with the Homeowner, they were all in agreement to be happy they are alive there pets were alive and well, and pictures, where all that matter. So in the next natural disaster! Remember, the 3P's People, Pets and Photographs!!!
Chasing out critters!
Our guys have been out in Houston, Texas for a few weeks now to continue helping homeowners in need. Working hard every day nonstop can be exhausting but every day is a different day with it's own stories. On one day, our technicians were visited by an unexpected neighbor. This little fella heard that SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson was in town and had to show up. He decided to make his way into a home that we had been working on that morning. Our guys had to chase him out and make sure he doesn't hide inside the house and possibly take up residence. Thankfully that was not the case. Our team safely got him out to go back to where it came from so we may continue working. Definitely an interesting day for SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson.
Happy customer in Texas
Just another happy customer that SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson had the privilege to work with in Houston, Texas. Hurricane Harvey created a lot of damage that brought a lot of hurt but keeping a positive attitude is always the best response. Mrs. G is one of those who choose to look at the positive side of things. She is a very sweet lady who enjoys doing yoga and can actually plank! It was a pleasure to work with her in this time of need.
Helping Texas clean up
SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson is devastated hearing about all the losses that occurred because of Hurricane Harvey. When we heard that they needed assistance, we immediately volunteered and deployed some of our team to help those who were affected. Our guys drove to Houston, Texas this early September and have successfully assisted many while they were there. Daily, our team is working very hard to restore these homes and assure that the homeowners are aware that they are in good hands. Houston is beautiful and seeing these gorgeous big homes destroyed by the floods is devastating. Our guys are quick to every job no matter the circumstance they were in. This only proves that there is no job too big for SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson to handle and with this, we plan to continue helping as much as possible.
Mud Set Shower Pan Installation
I believe all SERVPROs around the nation are unique in the services they provide. Did you know that SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson also remodels? We remodel kitchens and baths as well as rebuild homes that were previously damaged from fires, floods, and smoke damage. This is a recent shower remodel we are currently in the tiling phase of the project. There was an odd size tub that the homeowner was using solely as a shower. We added a corner bench built out of cinder block and installed a curb made out of bricks. The floor is called a Mud Set Pan which basically mean that it is all built out of concrete sloping toward the drain. Stay tuned as the completed project wraps up in two weeks.
Roof Tarping during Monsoon Season
Every year that strange phenomenon happens called Monsoon. Rain and high winds peel flat or low pitch roofs off the deck or substrate. Tarping to keep water out is tricky!!! Every roof has different pitches, angles, and crickets to divert water run-off. This homeowner suffered two water damages due to the intense storm were had this summer. Lucky this client knew right away to call SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson. Though we were receiving a high volume of emergency calls, we made it a point to rush over to this client. As you can see from the picture, we placed around 1,500 Sqft of tarp as a temporary fix. We then went ahead and proceeded with the emergency water mitigation services. Homeowner was pleased with our staff as we restored his home back into better conditions. We informed him that we are just here to help.
Does it smell like rotten meat or fish??
"Rob, I have a crises!" Said one of our previous customers. "The realtors are going to show my house in a few hours and the power went off in the garage over the weekend and it smells like rotten fish or rotten meat. I need your help ASAP!"
When you encounter a situation like this, the first thing to do is:
1. Do not panic.
2. Eliminate the source of the odor.
3. Clean all surrounding surfaces.
4. Open a window.
Some odors such as eggs or meat are called protein fires and the smoke is white. Although you can't see the smoke damage, the odor is present. We utilize ozone machines and vapor-sharks, to eliminate odor after good old fashion soap and water does not do the trick.
