A Guide to Dealing With Water Damage in Your Tucson Home 

Coming home to the sight of soaked carpets, furniture, and flooded rooms because of a broken water pipe, washing machine overflow, or faulty tap may cause panic. Seeping water damage is pervasive and progressive. It can cause permanent damage to valuable household items, wooden floors, and electrical equipment if you delay emergency response beyond the first 48 hours. Secondary damage may also occur from mold growth on walls, staircases, and upholstered furniture. 

To restore your Tucson home after water damage, you can take several steps to minimize the amount of long-term damage that could result. Start by shutting down electric power to reduce the risk of getting electrocuted while cleaning up the affected areas. You should also open the windows to ventilate your home and then try to remove excess water from floors with buckets or wet/dry vacuums. However, doing this may not remove all the water and moisture from your house. Therefore, you need to call an expert water restoration firm like SERVPRO. 

Our firm has experienced professionals who are well trained and equipped to help you solve your water problem in a precise and efficient way. We have high-tech equipment to dry your home and de-humidify it to prevent mold infestation on walls, fabrics, and floors. Our technicians have Water Damage Restoration Technician (WRT) certification and can do several things to dry out your property. 

We can extract water from floors using portable pumps or shop vacs. These extractors enable us to remove water effectively, even in hard-to-reach areas. We also remove water vapor in the air using dehumidifiers. Microbes are present in any water loss incident, whether gray, clean, or black. If you do not take care of the water intrusion quickly, microbes may cause one water damage category to deteriorate into a more contaminated category. For example, in a few days, clean water can turn into gray water. Our SERVPRO technicians respond quickly to water loss incidents to limit the damage. We reduce the humidity in a home to below 60% to prevent mold growth. 

Our technicians also use moisture detecting equipment like thermal imaging cameras, moisture sensors, and moisture meters to check for hidden sources of moisture in walls and floors. We can then dry these areas to prevent mold growth and rust. Using the principles of applied structural drying (ASD), our technicians can ensure that your home is properly dried and restored to the condition it was in before the water intrusion incident occurred. We can also help you claim compensation from your insurance company for the damages. 

To deal with a water loss incident in your Tucson, Oro Valley or Marana home, contact SERVPRO of Oro Valley / Marana East at (520) 620-9700 for help. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
