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 bet you didn't know we remodel Kitchens and Baths as well as Rebuild Homes damaged from fire flood 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 meaning its all built out of concrete sloping toward the drain. Stay tuned as the completed project wraps up in a 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 stricky!!! Every roof has different pitches angles and crickets to divert water run- off.
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.

The right equipment for the job.
That's a lot of equipment indeed but it's the right equipment for this job. A water pipe broke and caused a flood in this kitchen. There was an excessive amount of water when SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson arrived. We began extracting water as soon as we arrived so that we may prevent any further damage to the tile and the other affected areas. This picture shows the equipment that our highly trained technicians set up after the mitigation was done. Homeowner was pleased to see no water and was impressed of how fast we took care of the damages as well. SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson is fast to the job and quick to work. We love to ensure that our customers are happy with the work because we are here to help!
On no! Mold!
Mold under the kitchen sink.
When water damage does not get appropriately and immediately attended, the risks of mold growth is very high. Mold thrives on moisture and even in high humidity which can turn your single water damage to a mold remediation. It is not pleasing to think about having mold in your home but most homeowners don’t realize that mold could be lurking anywhere at this moment! One of the usual places for mold infestation is underneath the kitchen sink like in this picture. When was the last time you really inspected underneath the sink?
Mold is a problem that should be professionally handled since mold releases spores and can easily spread throughout the affected area and onto other parts of your home.

Typical Tucson Weather...
Mother Nature is very indecisive here in Tucson, AZ. What should have been two days of nice heavy rain turns into a single day of on and off pour. With this typical weather, the rain comes out of the blue and just like that you notice a puddle caused by a leak coming from your living room ceiling or a drenched carpet because you left your window open or whatever the case may be. As much as we enjoy the rain when it comes, it is unpleasant to come home to a soaked carpet or dripping ceiling. SERVPRO® of Northeast Tucson is fast to arrive and happy to attend all your water emergencies. Don’t let these unexpected situations stress you out, call us at (520)760-9352 and allow us to take care of your home like it never happened!
“Water, Water Everywhere/ Nor any Drop to Drink”
These famous lines from Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poem, “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” are spoken by a sailor on a becalmed ship, in the middle of the ocean, surrounded by salt water and speak to the desperation one feels when events are out of control. We at SERVPRO® of Northeast Tucson are familiar with helping property owners who feel that way and can help them get back in control with our experienced technicians and our state of the art drying equipment.

What does it matter if I dry a water loss or not?
In the 90’s Mold became the Cause Celeb, especially that strain of “Black” Mold, Stachybotrys, that struck fear in the hearts of thousands of Americans. Even though that hysteria has passed, it is no joking matter to have mold growing in your home. It is true that mold spores are everywhere, but for mold to grow you have to have two things: 1) food; and 2) water. There is very little you can do to remove all “food” sources in a house, but you can eliminate the water factor. When you have a water loss, it is incredibly important to completely dry the area affected so mold will not grow. If you try to take care of it yourself, you run the risk of giving mold a chance to infiltrate your house. Why would you do that when you can call SERVPRO® of Northeast Tucson at 520-760-9352, and make sure your house is dry.
Trauma Scene Clean up
Not to mention the emotional trauma of loss, but what do you do in the aftermath when something terrible occurs? Although everyone’s experience is unique, there are similar but difficult decisions that have to be made every time a loss of this nature takes place. Generally how one goes about cleaning the affected area is not the first thing that comes to mind. However at some point this has to be done….and where do you go? Here at SERVPRO® of Northeast Tucson at 520-760-9352, we are trained and ready to assist when something like this happens. We have the equipment, cleaning solutions, deodorization techniques and chemicals to combat all of the relevant issues such as blood borne pathogens. Our staff has been immunized against Hepatitis and is ready to help you return your home and contents to their pre-loss condition. Although one never is the same when confronted with this possibility, rest assured there is someone who understands and will help you through this ordeal.
