2022 Monsoon Season Predictions for Tucson?

6/14/2022 (Permalink)

Lighting fills the sky during the monsoon season in the North American Southwest. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Pima County.

Our Northeast Tucson and Oro Valley/Marana East technicians have the training, equipment, and experience to mitigate and restore storm damage quickly and efficiently in Tucson. According to the National Weather Service, Arizona is going to have a very wet and active monsoon season this summer, with a 70 percent chance of precipitation expected to reach near or above normal across the Southwest. Here is some information from the Pima County website on monsoon safety:

  • Do not attempt to drive through a flooded road. The depth of water is not always obvious. The roadbed may be washed out under the water, and you could be stranded or trapped.
  • Six inches of water can cause most cars to lose control
  • Two feet of rushing water can carry away most vehicles including sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and pick-up trucks
  • Don't drive around barricades. Barricades are there for your protection. Turn around and go the other way.
  • Treat non-working or flashing traffic signals at intersections as a four-way stop. Proceed with caution.
  • If floodwaters rise around your car but the water is not moving, abandon the car and move to higher ground. Do not leave the car and enter moving water.

What Are the Smoke Odor Damage and Removal Methods Used in Oro Valley?

6/7/2022 (Permalink)

Inky black smoke fills the air. We restore smoke odor and damage 24-hours a day in Pima County.

Our Northeast Tucson and Oro Valley/Marana East technicians have the specialized training and skill required to neutralize and remove smoke odor from homes and businesses in Oro Valley. Here are descriptions of smoke removal equipment we use:

Air Scrubber or Filter

  • Heating, ventilation, air conditioning system (HVAC) air scrubber or a high-efficiency particulate air filter (HEPA) air purifier can capture larger smoke molecules. There will still be some residual odor from smaller molecules or surface residues.

Ozone Generator

  • An ozone generator is a fast and highly effective smoke odor restoration method. These machines emit ozone, which follows the same paths through the air as smoke and oxidizes any residual traces in the air or on surfaces.

Thermal Fogging

  • Thermal fogging is an intensive treatment involving fogging machines. After residents evacuate, smoke cleaning professionals fill a structure with petroleum distillates that neutralize odors and ventilate the area.

Hydroxyl Generator

  • A hydroxyl generator is a slower and gentler alternative to ozone. These machines rely on ultraviolet light to generate hydroxyl radicals that eliminate smoke odors. It will take about three to five days of continuous operation to achieve the same results as a single ozone treatment.

Vapor Modification

  • Vapor modification is another odor elimination method that relies on aromatic compounds and a blower or fan to neutralize smoke odor

Cooking Oil Fire in Bonita Ridge Home?

5/31/2022 (Permalink)

Flames leap from a gas stove burner while a person is cooking with oil in a skillet. We restore fire damage 24-hours a day in Pima County.

Our team in Northeast Tucson and Oro Valley/Marana East responds to fire damage emergencies throughout the year in Tucson. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), ranges or cook-tops account for three out of every five reported home fires involving cooking equipment. Here are some tips for cooking with oil from the NFPA: 

  • Always stay in the kitchen when frying on the stovetop
  • Keep an eye on what you fry. If you see wisps of smoke or the oil smells, immediately turn off the burner and carefully remove the pan from the burner. Smoke is a danger sign that the oil is too hot.
  • Heat the oil slowly to the temperature you need for frying or sautéing
  • Add food gently to the pot or pan, so the oil does not splatter
  • Always cook with a lid beside your pan. If you have a fire, slide the lid over the pan and turn off the burner. Do not remove the cover because the fire could start again. Let the pan cool for a long time. Never throw water on the fire.
  • Get everyone out of your home if the fire does not go out or you don’t feel comfortable sliding a lid over the pan. Call the fire department from outside.

Mystery Odor in Oro Valley Home?

5/24/2022 (Permalink)

A man is holding his nose to prevent smelling a foul odor in his home. We identify and neutralize offensive odors in Pima County.

Our team in Northeast Tucson and Oro Valley/Marana East has odor removal down to a science – literally! Our technicians are trained and certified to locate odors and neutralize them. Sometimes the cause of bad odors is challenging to identify because they originate from more than one source and can come from within and outside the dwelling. We never mask odors or take shortcuts as these methods are not effective.

Common Causes of Bad Odors

  • Dirty drains
  • Bacteria
  • Sewer systems
  • Dead animals in walls or crawl spaces
  • Garbage disposals
  • Rotten food

Odor Identification

The first step is to identify the source of the smell and locate where the odor is contacting surfaces. Sometimes the odors originate from more than one location in the building.

Odor Elimination Process

Once we identify the cause of the odor and determine the conditions where it contacts surfaces, the odor can often be removed over time without a trace. Our technicians use several odor removal products to penetrate surfaces and neutralize unpleasant scents thoroughly.
