Why Professional Water Restoration is Necessary for Flooding in Tucson

Are you ready for the summer storm season? SERVPRO is always on call to handle any storm damage that comes your way.

Flood Damage Experts In Tucson Describe The Role Of Water Restoration Technicians

In the summertime, it is possible for thunderstorms to hit the Tucson region. When a storm makes its way into your neighborhood, many conditions present can cause your property to suffer from flood damage. High-speed winds can cause objects like rocks or tree branches to become airborne and fly into the exterior of your structure. When things like rocks or branches strike weak spots of your walls or your windows, the instance can create a hole in the outside of your house. Whenever the exterior of your home gets breached, it is possible that moisture can make its way into your building and cause you extensive flood damage.  

Once rainwater makes its way into the interior of your structure, it is prudent to contact a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO. Our water restoration technicians or WRTs have experience in dealing with flood damage inside your Tucson home. Whenever items get wet inside your home, anything that comes in direct contact with water is susceptible to primary problems. When things inside your house stay wet, the moisture can start to soak into your building materials and contents. Water then evaporates and fills the air in the form of vapor.  

This vapor can then cause other issues that are considered secondary problems. The main goal when mitigating flood related issues is to prevent secondary damage from taking place. We train and certify our WRTs by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification or IICRC. During this certification program, the WRTs learn how to use industrially advanced equipment to remove moisture from your home as quickly as possible.  

The WRTs also know the best methods on how to return your home to its preloss conditions “Like it never even happened.” Before any work begins, our WRTs take moisture readings of your building materials and contents. We first test the affected areas and then compare the readings with areas in parts of your home that did not get affected. We do this to determine a final drying goal, so we know when our applied structural drying or ASD process is complete.  

If you ever have moisture get into your house during a storm, call SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson at (520) 760-9352 any hour of the day.
