Losing my best friend!
We got the worst news this past week that my dog Nial has bone cancer. How can a dog get Bone Cancer and he is only 5. How unfair andhow sad! I wishlife were easier! I have to be a responsible owner and let him go. I am keeping him alive as he is in pain butI am not ready to let go!!!
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. We deployed some of our team to help those who were affected in Houston, Texas and have successfully assisted many. Daily, our team is working very hard to restore these homes to assure that the homeowners are aware that they are in good hands. 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.
But don’t worry, SERVPRO® of Northeast Tucson is here to help! Call for a free consultation now. (520)760-9352
