Sewage backups in your home can be a total nightmare and very dangerous due to the harmful bacteria that is lurking in the contaminated water. It can be overwhelming on you, the homeowner or business owner, when you are faced with a biohazard issue that can pose serious health risks to those in your Goodyear home or business.

SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix recently dealt with a home where a Category 3 sewage backup had affected both bathrooms. Category 3 refers to water that is highly unsanitary and contains untreated sewage that is extremely hazardous. The homeowner was stuck to deal with standing sewage that caused damage to half of the house. As a result, the carpets and drywall had to be removed as well as the vinyl flooring and ceramic tile flooring and tile in the shower.

Let The Professionals Handle The Cleanup

Our SERVPRO technicians adhered to all the proper protocols with the right tools and equipment when cleaning up hazardous conditions that contained microbes. Once the cleanup was complete, swab testing was completed to check the level of bacterial on a sample material. This is done to ensure the area is no longer contaminated.

Wildfire and Brushfire Safety Preparation Tips For Avondale and Goodyear Residents

10/9/2020 (Permalink)

Tree with smoke and fire in the background Brushfires are a hazard in the area due to the dry climate and heat.

National Fire Prevention Week is currently taking place and as you already know from our previous blog, the theme this year is “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!” SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix would like to help you and your loved ones with safety tips in the event of a possible wildfire or brushfire occurring near your home. Although wildfires and brushfires are not exactly a part of this year’s theme, we still feel it’s crucial information for Avondale and Goodyear residents to know since we do live in a dry desert climate.

According to the National Weather Service, Arizona has experienced the second hottest and third driest summer in over 100 years. According to Maricopa.gov, the top hazards we face in Maricopa County are flooding and wildfires. Monsoon season is officially over and we are still dealing with triple digit temperatures so wildfires and brushfires occurring at this time of year is still very likely. Here are some tips to practice with your family and loved ones to ensure everyone’s safety if a wildfire or brushfire is threatening your home.

Stay Informed

  • Make sure you’re signed up to receive emergency notifications on your cell phone.

Have A Plan

  • Create a disaster plan that accounts for everyone’s needs and safety. The plan should detail all possible exit routes from your home and identify where everyone should meet, preferably outside your home and another spot that’s included away from your home at another safe location.

Ready To Go

  • Create a go bag which is essentially items in a bag that you can grab and take right away when you’re needing to make a quick exit during an emergency. Examples of items to place in your go bag include bottled water and snacks for energy, extra clothes, blanket, important documents, cash, rechargeable battery for your phone, first aid kit, flashlight with extra batteries, important medications and child care supplies. Of course, everyone’s needs vary so feel free to make whatever adjustments needed.

This past summer, areas around Scottsdale experienced brushfires which quickly spread near residential areas causing evacuations for many homes. The increase of dried vegetation this year was due to moisture from 2019 and early 2020 that caused for new growth of vegetation which eventually dried up. Because of the dry climate that we live in, it is important to know what to do and to be ready if a possible wildfire or brushfire occurs near your home.

Water Damage of Unknown Cause in Avondale Condo

SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix is doing what we do best which is continuing to provide fire and water cleanup and restoration services as well as mold remediation and COVID-19 disinfection to customers dealing with stressful situations.

Recently, we had a customer dealing with a water damage situation in which their upstairs neighbor had an extensive water loss situation that caused damage to our customer’s unit. The homeowner living upstairs was unfortunately not taking care of the water loss occurring in their own home which caused our SERVPRO technicians to do further inspecting and demo to be able to ensure our customer’s safety. The ceiling, walls, and floors in our customer’s home were affected. We initially tried to dry the affected structures in place but due to the unknown causes of the water loss to the upstairs unit, our technicians had to open the ceiling to make sure that there was no microbial growth in the space between the units.

Here at SERVPRO, we care about our customers with our main goal of getting their property back to its previous condition “Like it never even happened.” Every so often, we’ll encounter situations such as this one where another homeowner will make the situation a bit difficult but nonetheless, we strive to take care of our customers as much as we can.
