How SERVPRO Handles Commercial Water Damage Restoration in Tucson
No matter the size or scope of the water damage, SERVPRO is always available to take your call.
Exterior Desiccant Dehumidifiers, Ducting and Commercial Water Damage Restoration in Tucson
As the owner of an independent retail outlet, you may utilize off-site storage to hold stock as well as manufacture products. These storage spaces may be in industrial parks on the outskirts of the city. Usually, ample storage spaces like this lack essential insulation and can be prone to weaknesses in the overall structure. These weaknesses may allow rainwater to seep into the building and begin affecting the stock. Since storage warehouses are not regularly accessed, you may find that a water issue becomes prominent and requires large equipment to rectify.
Our services encompass commercial water damage restoration here in Tucson. Using larger equipment requires expertise as well as the resources to mobilize and deploy equipment quickly. Crew chiefs of SERVPRO have qualifications from the Institute of inspection, cleaning, and restoration certifications (IICRC) so you can trust them to manage your restoration needs efficiently and professionally. Restorers can communicate with you from start to finish to ensure that you are kept in the loop throughout.
When restoring an ample open space like a storage warehouse, there may be a need to create smaller drying zones. Evaporation is typically slower in more substantial areas because creating the requisite heat, airflow, and dehumidification requires more powerful equipment. To combat this, SERVPRO water restoration technicians may create drying tents. These are large sheets of polyethylene that are held to the floor using sandbags. Technicians can then apply air flow inflating the tent while ensuring that they subject wet floors to a concentrated drying.
Sometimes drying a more substantial space may benefit from using more extensive equipment. Ductwork allows SERVPRO technicians to seal the building and use large exterior desiccant dehumidifiers. Ducting in this way requires an intake duct to circulate dry air into the property and exhaust to remove moist, humid air. There are security security issues to consider when ducting a property, and SERVPRO members can stay on-site throughout the process to ensure there is no unlawful entry.
Restoring large spaces requires first-hand experience as well as industrial drying equipment. Contact SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson at (520) 760-9352 now.

Commercial Water Damage in a Tucson Hospital Calls or Effective Restoration
When water splashes into your hospital, call SERVPRO!
Water Damage Restoration With SERVPRO
Hospitals work with accreditation organizations, professional groups, and quality experts to provide a safe environment for patients and their families. They ensure that their patients are safe by investing in the latest technology, hiring competent staff, and keeping floors and other surfaces clean. If a water loss issue occurs, the hospital's facilities management needs to look for an experienced restoration company to help restore the facilities to normal and safe operations as quickly as possible.
Several factors can cause commercial water damage in a Tucson hospital, such as equipment defects and corroded pipes. A hospital should hire a certified restoration firm that has experience with hospital procedures and guidelines to complete the water restoration project. Restoring a hospital after a water loss problem is more stringent and involved than other commercial projects. Our SERVPRO crew can help you restore your hospital after a minor water loss.
It is crucial to handle water damage within the first 24 hours to prevent mold growth that can affect the health of patients. Our crew can use equipment like electric submersible pumps to remove the water. These pumps eradicate the suction lift limitations and offer continuous, quiet operation, which is welcome in a healthcare facility. We can also clean, sanitize, and disinfect the water-damaged areas because clean water can turn into gray or black water, leading to health risks.
Our team can also dry the affected areas properly to avoid structural damage and mold growth. We have the technical know-how to dry affected surfaces using air moving and dehumidifying equipment. We can complete the water remediation task efficiently to ensure that the hospital is clean, safe, and protected throughout the entire process. We can keep the hospital's heads of departments and infectious control updated about the restoration process.
SERVPRO remediation experts understand that certain areas need to meet high standards of restoration for surface cleanliness and air quality authorization to return the ruined areas of the health facility to full operation. When completing restoration work in a hospital, it is necessary to call in an industrial hygienist to determine if any health and safety concerns are present and design solutions to prevent them. The hygienist can examine the areas we have worked on for legal reasons and to ensure the safety of patients.
We can work with your insurance firm and bill it directly. We know the detailed documentation and remediation procedures insurers expect to see to ensure hassle-free contents and property claims processing.
After a water intrusion incident in Catalina Foothills, Redington, or Mt Lemmon, you need professional help. SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson can assist you to remove the water, dry and sanitize your hospital, making the damage seem "Like it never even happened." Contact us at (520) 760-9352.

Your Commercial Property In Tucson Can Be Returned To Pre-Damage Condition After A Fire
Even if you have suffered only minor fire damage to your commercial property, call us today for a professional inspection and estimate.
Commercial Fire Damage Restoration In Tucson
Tucson business owners may occasionally dislike the weather this time of year, but once the sun goes down, the crowds do come out, especially for restaurants and other eateries.
For commercial fire damage in Tucson, time is often more of a factor than it is with residential properties. Every day a restaurant is closed means a loss of income for every employee as well as the business owner. Suppliers stop making deliveries, which impacts their financial health as well. SERVPRO response teams understand that even a small cafe can affect dozens of people and other businesses if it is closed for too long. That doesn’t include the customers who have to find another place to eat and may not return if the doors do not reopen soon.
Much of the effort for Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRTs) is cleaning equipment and structural property after disposing of wall panels, tables, seating, and ceiling tiles. Team members use cleaners with a deodorizing agent that not only break up layers of smoke residues but also neutralizes the particles which generate the malodors.
Wiping down metal surfaces after cleaning is a simple task, and FSRTs accomplish it quickly for ovens, refrigerators, and serving racks. For residues covering the ceiling, they use cleaners and long-handled mops and squeegees to break up and remove them. In the kitchens, after cleaning, team members use a sterilizer to ensure everything is clean enough for food preparation again. Floors also require a strong cleaner and a sterilizer. All SERVPRO work is designed to meet the standards and requirements for local and state health agencies.
In the customer serving areas, team members quickly dispose of any items physically damaged by the heat and flames. Each team leader is trained to work closely with owners and insurance representatives to ensure they expend time and effort only on items allowed for repair or restoration and dispose of everything else.
For our business, the goal of SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson is to help other businesses here, Catalina Foothills, Mt Lemmon, and Redington provide a clean, safe environment for customers and employees. Even if you have suffered only minor fire damage to your commercial property, call us today at (520) 760-9352 for a professional inspection and estimate. We are here for you.

SERVPRO Helps Physician’s Office In Tucson Recover From Commercial Fire Damage
Commercial fire damage is a devastating event for a business, especially so for a company that serves customers on-site. Even with the cleanup of charred materials and a fresh coat of paint, clients will not want to frequent an establishment that smells like a fire happened there.
There is a lot our experts need to consider when dealing with commercial fire damage in a Tucson business. An excellent example of this is a physician’s office where an employee’s lunch, a double-beef burrito in the microwave caused a fire in the breakroom. The staff used a fire extinguisher to put out the fire quickly, and the flames did little structural damage. There was minor discoloration to the ceiling, slight charring around the cabinet area and microwave and a very noticeable pungent odor.
Protein-based fires tend to leave little in the way of actual smoke damage but plenty of odor. Removing the charred cabinet door and cleaning away the soot left on the surfaces with the fire extinguisher residue goes a long way to lowering the odor levels in the affected areas, but more than merely removing burned items needs to be done to ensure the neutralization of smoke odors.
In cases where a fire is limited to a single area of a building, we usually contain the doorways and vents to stop the spread of soot. In this case, due to the odor being spread around the entire facility through foot traffic and having the HVAC on, we needed to treat the whole premises for fire odors.
Soot, which can be smaller than the human eye can see, carries significant odors. We use air filtration devices that include HEPA filters to capture particles, then we disinfect and sanitize the premises.
The final step in fire loss restoration for commercial properties involves total odor control. It sometimes takes multiple applications to neutralize fire odor completely. When our technicians complete the mitigation, we give a list of the final repairs needed to return the office to its preloss condition such as painting the walls, and the office can get back to seeing patients again in an office where there are no reminders of an unfortunate fire.
Contact SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson at (520) 760-9352 when you need commercial fire damage cleanup and restoration. Our technicians arrive quickly and use our proprietary methods to save as much of your property as possible from fire loss. With our restoration techniques, we make fire damage “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson is always available to keep you hotel dry.
How to Deal With Commercial Flood Damage in Your Tucson Motel
Flooding is a common occurrence, and it can happen during the main rainy seasons like the monsoon season and the winter rains. It can make roads impassable and can flood even the most well-maintained and modern motels. If flood water enters your motel, quick extraction is essential.
Water can ruin many types of floors from tiles, vinyl, wood floors and the wood subfloor beneath the carpeting. To deal with commercial flood damage in your Tucson Motel, you can call the water damage remediation specialists at SERVPRO. We can assist you to extract the water and then dry and dehumidify your motel.
Apart from ruining the floors, flood water can ruin other surfaces and areas like walls because of their porous surfaces. You may need to repair the bottom section of the water-damaged walls. Water can ruin electrical wiring which can cause fire and electrical hazards to your guests and staff. Water damage can also affect the contents of the building, including the furniture, valuable works of art, and antiques.

Our SERVPRO technicians can arrive at your motel quickly after receiving your call.

The decision to replace or restore depends on the porosity of the materials, the contaminants, and the pretest results. Because we cannot disinfect porous items like carpets, we remove and discard them.
We can use powerful truck mounted or submersible pumps to remove the standing water. Our technicians can then use air movers to circulate air in the affected areas to speed up the drying process. We also use dehumidification equipment to remove the moisture from the air. We check our work by using moisture meters to check the moisture content of damaged materials and then eliminate the moisture.

What is Water Damage Remediation and How Does it Work for Your Tucson Business?
When your retail store has water damage from sprinklers or a pipe, contact our experienced team at SERVPRO for water removal or remediation efforts.
SERVPRO - Commercial Water Damage Restoration For Tucson Retail Operations
When a Tucson business suffers through a disaster like a fire that activates the sprinkler system, it is often the water that causes more damage than the flames or smoke.
Commercial water damage like this in a Tucson retail outlet can affect everything inside the store. Fortunately, SERVPRO personnel can replace or restore everything from the ceiling to the inventory on the floor.
Most retail stores utilize a drop ceiling with space above for pipes, HVAC ducts, and electrical wires and conduit. The ceiling tiles catch the back spray from the sprinkler heads and quickly become soaked. Designed for easy removal and replacement, they warp or crumble within a day or two, making them cheaper to the store owner for our technicians to remove and replace than attempt to restore.
Next, SERVPRO team members examine the walls. In most stores, the outermost walls are sealed and painted concrete which effectively resist water damage. Interior walls that divide office and other interior spaces are drywall panels which can quickly absorb water and can even crumble in place. Our personnel train to efficiently remove the panels from the wall framing, break it down for bagging, and then remove and dispose of it outside the structure.
For a retail operation, the floors are often concrete, commercial tile, or concrete covered with a commercial grade carpet. For any of these three options, restoration is a simple process of drying the surfaces with a combination of air movers and fans to force warm, dry air over them while simultaneously drawing off the moisture and forcing it outside the structure.
Depending on the inventory merchandise, our options are usually dry it in place or dispose of it immediately. If we do not dispose of it, team members hang everything possible on the store racks or additional ones we bring in for drying. To speed up the rate of evaporation, they install fans throughout the racks to increase air circulation.
For SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson, the goal is to help every local business reopen its doors to their customers. If your business has had any recent, or not so recent, water incidents, call us at (520) 760-9352 to schedule a visit and determine what we can do for you.

Guarding Against Primary and Secondary Issues from Commercial Water Damage in Catalina Hills
Running a commercial business in rented property still means you are liable for damages for the duration of your lease. A water spill can cause both immediate concerns of mitigating loss as well as secondary ones such as the potential for mold growth further down the line.

In these instances, professional assistance can give you peace of mind as well as a comprehensive restoration service.

SERVPRO technicians have extensive training in reduces the impact of losses associated with water spills and act promptly to limit them.
Once space is cleared, SERVPRO can mobilize truck-mounted extraction units to help remove water without damaging fittings like carpets or other fabrics. In severe situations, where standing water is above two inches, our team deploy submersible gas pumps. These pumps deposit into an open drain pipe, usually a bathroom, and can remove large volumes of water in a short space of time.
Different businesses feature different concerns after a water loss. Offices, containing filing cabinets, documents and electronics can have different priorities for water removal than a restaurant or boutique which focus on inventory preservation. Our skilled technicians have the experience to expedite and maximize the treatment for our clients. Our business is to keep you in business.
Water migrates into crevices and cavities quickly while most drying equipment uses hot air to evaporate the moisture. This procedure is the fastest way of dealing with immediate damages and helps to mitigate against further loss. A side effect is that it also increases the humidity levels in a property which, if centrally heated, can create the perfect conditions for mold and fungi growth.
SERVPRO technicians are provided with Thermo-Hygrometers which can measure the humidity levels in any given space. We take measurements from both the affected zone and an unaffected area so that we can work toward bringing humidity levels to their natural level. By deploying dehumidifiers, we can remove moisture from the air and, at the same time, draw moisture from crevices or cavities.
To deal with immediate damages and guard against problems further down the line, contact SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson at (520) 760-9352 today.

Commercial Water Damage Professionals In Tucson Discuss Removing Moisture From Porous Substances
If moisture finds its way into your specialty furniture store in Tucson, your products could get damaged. Once moisture is present in places of your building where it is not supposed to be, commercial water damage can result. When dealing with disasters that occur at your place of business, our SERVPRO technicians know that saving your contents with extraction and drying can save you and your insurance company money in the long run. Replacing products inside your store can get costly, so we take extra measures to protect the items for sale in your shop from getting ruined. In some situations, we move out products inside your Tucson specialty furniture store and dry them separately from your building materials.
Moving out your contents can help speed up the drying process of both your products and your building's structural components. Drying materials quickly during a commercial water damage project in Tucson can help prevent fungal growth in the future. Moving wet items out of the affected building can also reduce problems created by excessive relative humidity levels. When dealing with porous items such as recliner chairs and couches, our SERVPRO crew often uses extra dehumidifiers so that vapor gets pulled from the air after it evaporates from solid substances at a faster rate. The more porous items that are present inside your store, the more likely extra dehumidification will prove to be useful.
If we do move your contents out of your building to dry them after water damage, our SERVPRO technicians set up your items in a clean and disinfected area. Sometimes we even seal off the region so that we can better control the environment. After we dry out your contents and structural components, we make sure everything gets cleaned and sanitized before it gets put back in your store. We often draw ourselves a map so that we make sure everything gets put back in the correct position.
If you ever notice that some of the pieces of furniture inside your store got wet, call SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson at (520) 760-9352 any time of the day.

SERVPRO Keeps the Pizza Slices Coming After a Water Loss in Tucson
SERVPRO Strives to Minimize Water Loss in Tucson Stores and Get the Doors Re-Opened
When a fire occurs on your property, the primary tool that firefighters use to extinguish it is water, and unfortunately, that can leave your pizzeria in desperate need of water removal services. Putting out a fire inside your pizzeria's kitchen can require hundreds of gallons of water that is pumped into your restaurant under high pressure. Firefighting efforts can leave water in places that you wouldn't have even considered to look; every nook and cranny of your kitchen is likely to be soaked.
Should you delay in calling for the help of professional water removal services to aid your Tucson pizzeria, the excess moisture could lead to further problems inside of your restaurant, such as mold or continuing degradation of fixtures. Additionally, the emergency fire-extinguishing system inside of your restaurant also uses a solution of powders designed to deny oxygen to the flames. In the aftermath, not only is there water to remove inside your kitchen, but also the remaining powder that may have turned into a muddy mess during firefighting efforts.
Here at SERVPRO, we understand how valuable your time is to you and, as a result, we work around your schedule. If the extinguishing should happen in the morning, we can come within hours of your call and work through the day until the remediation is finished so you can reopen your restaurant for business. Of course, the severity of the fire and water losses dictate the closure time. Should it happen during the evening, we can work through the night. Whenever you need the services of SERVPRO, we can be there.
Once our SERVPRO technicians report on the scene, they can clean up the initial debris left over by the fire and the extinguishing efforts. By removing the water at the scene, we can more easily access peripheral equipment such as wet/dry vacuums and extractors to remove the remaining water and moisture from your pizzeria.
Should you find your business in urgent need of water removal services, never hesitate. Reach out and contact SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson by dialing (520) 760-9352.

The Risks of An Aging Sprinkler System In Your Tucson Business
When you're dealing with a commercial water damage emergency, you can count on our SERVPRO team to respond immediately and help!
Have You Checked Your Tucson Business's Sprinkler System Lately?
Sprinkler systems are a standard feature to find in your Tucson business's building, but there is a lot that the average entrepreneur does not know about these fire safety additions. While they can assuredly help in the event of a growing fire happening in the building, they can also malfunction and break apart as they age.
It is a regulation for businesses to have fire prevention implements like sprinkler systems to remain in compliance with building safety codes. Unfortunately, without sustained maintenance to this network of pipes and plumbing, your business could find out what happens when one of these pipes disconnects, or the system spontaneously misdiagnoses a fire in the building. Suddenly, your Tuscon business is in need of professional water removal services.
While you might not assume that the small diameter pipe commonly used for sprinklers can house that much water, it is more than enough to cause a significant water incident in your building. This situation is even worse if your system believes there is a fire and begins pulling from its water supply to continue to douse the supposed issue.
Our SERVPRO professionals have experienced all manner of significant water loss incidents, and we have the tools and expertise to overcome any situation that you might face as well. From the time that we arrive, our focus is shutting off the water supply if this has not already happened.
Next, our team works to pull the water from the floor using several pieces of extraction equipment from weighted extractors to wet-vacs. This process allows our SERVPRO technicians to have the kind of access to assess the remaining dampness and present moisture and then to thoroughly dry the area successfully.
