Frequently Asked Questions
Where does Arizona water damage typically come from?
Water in Arizona can enter the home in a variety of ways, including foundation leaks, burst pipes, appliance valve failures or poor drainage around the home. Burst pipes, valve failures and sewage backups are particularly troublesome in AZ, as they can produce several inches of water within hours.
What are the dangers associated with water damage in Phoenix?
When water pools in the home, it will quickly soak through anything it comes in contact with. If it contains contaminants, all organic materials, like textiles and wood, will likely need to be restored. This is because contaminated liquid is the perfect environment for hosting a variety of microbes, including deadly viruses and bacteria. Floods from Monsoon’s, for example, are typically infested with cholera, hepatitis and other serious diseases in Arizona.
Mold is also a primary concern when water collects in the house. Mold left unchecked will spread quickly through the home by releasing spores into the air. This means that a mold colony can even reach parts of the home that seem dry. Short term exposure to mold is not typically a major concern, but regular inhalation of mold spores can cause a number of health complications, particularly in the young, old or immune compromised. These complications often include respiratory infections, nausea, agitation, malaise, fatigue, and even deadly neurological complications.
In general, the longer the moisture is allowed to sit in the home, the more problems it will cause. This can result in additional expenses down the road.
How is water damage typically handled by a certified technician in Phoenix?
The first thing our Arizona professionals will do is remove any compromised materials from the home. This typically includes carpeting, carpet padding, baseboards, insulation, clothing, upholstery, fragile woods like plywood or particle board and gypsum containing materials, like sheetrock walls and ceilings. Once the home is clear of any destroyed items and all standing liquid pumped out, the certified technicians will work to dry and disinfect the area. This process takes several days, requiring the use of air mover fans, dehumidifiers and, occasionally, heat injection fans.
While the AZ home is drying out, technicians will perform a thorough inspection for mold and other microbes. If the Phoenix area technicians find anything, the microorganisms will be removed and properly treated with disinfectants if needed. When larger mold colonies are present, Arizona technicians will build a containment structure around the area and remove the contaminated materials physically out of the house.
What kind of training should a water damage restoration company have in the Phoenix area?
Arizona restoration companies should employ technicians trained by a respected organization like the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). The IICRC offers several courses on restoration, including a structural drying course and a microbial remediation course. This training prepares AZ technicians for a variety of job situations and keeps them safe when working around hazardous environmental conditions in the Phoenix metro area.
