Prevent Floods In Your Business

Avondale and Goodyear residents know all too well that an incoming storm can happen in a flash, especially during our summer monsoon season. The skies can be sunny one moment, and dark cloudy skies the next, signaling an incoming storm. Because of this, it’s always best to be prepared in order to protect your business from flooding that can occur on your property. Here is what SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix recommends.  

1. Install a Sump Pump

A sump pump  works by quickly extracting and removing water from the interior of your business.

2. Clean Gutters

Be sure to clean out the gutters on your property to assure that there’s no blockage to prevent water from draining properly. If the gutters remain clogged with debris, you prevent water from draining from your roof which could lead to the possibility of a roof leak. Make sure that you clean out the gutters and position them to drain away from the property.

3. Use Sealants

Make sure you have your property fully inspected for any openings such as cracks or holes. When these are left unattended, you allow for the possibility of more water entering your building when floodwater is on the rise.

These are some simple steps that business owners can do to prevent flooding from happening to your property.

It’s important for business owners and property managers to make sure they provide preventative measures to ensure that toilets on their property don’t cause flooding. A toilet flooding can be a complete nightmare for business owners and property managers by causing disruption to daily operations. SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix has put together some simple tips to prevent a toilet flood from occurring in your Avondale or Goodyear business.

  1. Be sure to post informative signage visible to the public that indicates what can and can’t be flushed, especially when it comes to items such as diapers and feminine sanitary products.
  2. Make sure waste containers for non-flushable. disposable items are available and disposed of regularly.
  3. Use thinner toilet paper so that it’s easier to break down and will decrease the likelihood of clogging.
  4. Be sure to schedule drain cleanings, especially for food/restaurant establishments. Grease can collect in the drain lines causing a potential backup or overflow.

If your business is faced with a flooding from a toilet overflow, give SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix a call to handle the cleaning and restoration of your property.

Mold Growth On Goodyear Property

When a water leak occurs on your Goodyear property, it’s important that the cause of the leak is repaired immediately to prevent a mold infestation from occurring as it only takes a matter of days for a mold growth problem to arise. A widespread mold problem can be quite costly which is why prevention is key to avoid this from taking place.

SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix responded to a commercial business that had been dealing with an ongoing leak that had occurred in the ceiling. The plumber had initially discovered the mold growth as the repairs were taking place. When our SERVPRO crews arrived on scene, they were ready to tackle the problem. SERVPRO worked after hours so that the store could resume its normal business hours. Mold containment was done in the source area as well as where inventory was to prevent the spread of mold during the filtration and removal process.

If your business is dealing with mold growth, give our office a call. We have the experience and follow all proper protocols to ensure that it’s effectively removed from your property.

Water Damage To Your Commercial Property? We Can Help!

Water damage to kitchen floor SERVPRO is available 24/7 for your water or fire damage emergencies.

A commercial business in Avondale contacted SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix when they arrived at work to discover extensive water damage throughout their restaurant. The restaurant owners discovered that a fire line sprinkler in the kitchen caused widespread water damage, affecting the kitchen and dining area. Because of this, the restaurant had to be closed while the restoration process was in place. The downtime in productivity for the restaurant can be devastating to the business which is why our SERVPRO crews acted right away. When our technicians arrived, they used powerful vacuum units to begin with the water removal process. Demo work was done in the restaurant’s bar and kitchen because water had flowed underneath the laminate flooring which further affected the flooring and walls. Our technicians also completed a thorough cleaning of the commercial kitchen equipment that was dirty. Once all this was complete, the restaurant was able to return back to business “Like it never even happened.”

Commercial Water Damage To Office Building

Desiccant in commercial building SERVPRO has the equipment to thoroughly dry out your office space when it comes to water damage.

SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix received a call from a Phoenix business that was experiencing extensive water loss in their high-rise commercial office space. A security guard for the building had noticed that water was pooling outside of the entrance. Upon closer inspection, the first floor was covered in water which was leaking from the ceiling. Five floors in this commercial space were affected. The initial cause of the water damage happened on the fifth floor was due to a failed plumbing fixture. Each affected floor below the fifth floor had water soaked carpets and damaged ceiling tiles. Thankfully, the entire office space was vacant so there wasn’t additional damage to office furniture, equipment, or loss of production time.

Our SERVPRO crews arrived to begin the cleanup and drying process of the five floors. A large drying apparatus known as a desiccant was used to dry out the large area. SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix is always here to help your commercial property when it is faced with extensive water damage.
