Haboob Dust Storms in Phoenix

Photo of storm clouds Monsoon season in Avondale and Goodyear also means haboobs. Avoid storm damage from these dust storms with these tips!

The onset of monsoon season typically signals the start of severe dust storms known here in the Valley as haboobs. In recent years, we’ve seen huge dust clouds and massive walls of dust completely blanket parts of our city during an incoming monsoon. As we near monsoon season, it’s important to be aware of the possible hazards that can affect your property.  

SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix has compiled a list of tips to help get your property prepared to avoid any haboob damage.

  • The aftermath of a haboob can cause downed trees throughout the Valley so make sure to trim trees that are around your property to prevent them from causing damage to your windows or roof.
  • Inspect your roof or have a professional inspect for you to ensure there are no damages. Haboobs are typically followed by monsoon downpours and the last thing you want to deal with is rainwater pouring into your home.
  • If you have any outdoor furniture or patio umbrellas, be sure to place them in your garage or storage to prevent it from flying away during the haboob’s high winds and possibly causing damage to your home.

By following these steps, we hope that your property remains safe once the monsoon dust storms arrive. If your property is faced with storm damage, give SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix a call at 623-537-9999. We are always here to help.

Memorial Day is this weekend and just like that, the month of May is almost over which means summer is officially here in the Valley. Everyone here at SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix would like to wish you and your loved ones a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend. If you plan on doing some grilling outdoors, we hope you take some time to review these safety precautions to prevent any setbacks from occurring.

  • Avoid wearing loose fitting clothing and if you have long hair, be sure to tie it back to prevent it from potentially catching on fire.
  • Make sure you place your BBQ grill on a flat surface away from your home and any trees, shrubs or weeds that can potentially catch on fire from a spark.
  • Be cautious when using lighter fluid. Spray it only in the grill.
  • Prevent grease buildup by cleaning the grill.
  • Don’t leave the grill unattended and have baking soda and a fire extinguisher on hand just in case.

Smoke Alarm Safety

Picture of smoke against black background Smoke alarms can save lives.

When was the last time you’ve tested the smoke alarms in your home? Do you remember the last time you switched out the batteries? According to the National Fire Protection Association, three out of five home fire fatalities happen in homes where smoke alarms aren’t working properly or where there are no smoke alarms installed. SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix wants you and your loved ones to be safe so we put together these simple steps.

  • Make sure your home has the right amount of smoke alarms. This depends on the size of your home. Ideally, you want a smoke alarm on each floor and located outside of bedrooms and the kitchen area.
  • Make sure that smoke alarms are all interconnected so that if one goes off, all the other smoke alarms alert as well.
  • Test your smoke alarms at least once a month by pressing the test button and switching out batteries when necessary.
  • Clean around your smoke alarm and remove any dust or spiderwebs.
  • Replace smoke alarms after 10 years.

It’s important to make sure your home is equipped with the proper smoke alarms so that you and your family can be alerted of a possible fire in your Avondale or Goodyear home.

Prevent A Clogged Toilet

5/12/2020 (Permalink)

Picture of toilet An overflowing toilet is no fun. Avoid the stress by following these simple steps.

Dealing with a clogged toilet can be a nuisance when it come to your home or business, especially when it decides to overflow. As a result, you’re left with contaminated water pooling on your bathroom floor or, even worse, if your bathroom is located on the second floor, you also risk a potential leak occurring on the first floor.

SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix has put together these simple steps to prevent a clogged toilet from occurring.

  • Do not use too much toilet paper. Only use what you need. Trying to flush too much toilet paper at once can cause a clog to occur because toilet paper doesn’t dissolve all at once. If more is needed, flush the toilet, use what is needed, and flush the toilet again.
  • Do not flush anything other than toilet paper. Do not flush things like paper towels, facial tissues, or wipes. Even though wipes say they are flushable, do not flush but instead, dispose of them in the trash.
  • If you have pets or little ones around, you may want to close the lid to prevent them from accidentally dropping something like a toy or small object that can easily become lodged in the drain.

We hope that by following these simple steps, you can prevent a clogged toilet from overflowing and causing damage to your home or business. If you do find yourself having to deal with an overflowing toilet, you can call SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix right after the situation has been dealt with by a plumber. We can handle the cleanup, especially when it comes to contamination factors.

Prevent Floods In Your Business

3/27/2020 (Permalink)

Picture of water in office building with SERVPRO crew Make sure your business is prepared ahead of time to prevent floodwaters from affecting your property.

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.
