Water leak from fridge Dealing with water damage? Give us a call!

Water damage in your home can be an emergency that will escalate quickly, especially if you don’t take action right away. Different situations from everyday appliances can cause water damage to occur. Here are some examples of common water damages that we see take place in Avondale and Goodyear homes.  

Washing Machine

The hoses located in the back of a washing machine can become damaged or worn down over time. It’s important to make sure the hoses are connected properly and to routinely inspect them for wear and tear so that you can make the necessary repairs.

Dishwasher

Make sure to routinely inspect the seal which is located around the door and prevents water from leaking out. You also need to access the hoses which are found by removing the front access panel. These hoses are what allow for the dishwasher to fill and drain.

Refrigerator

Your refrigerator can leak from a blocked or clogged drain or from the water line located behind the fridge. The water line can cause water to pool and collect under your fridge.

Routine inspections can help you identify wear and tear occurring on your appliances so that you can prevent a water leak from occurring in your home.  

Preparing For A Power Outage In Your Business

Utility workers working on power lines Stay on top of your business' productivity during a power outage in your business.

The biggest storm activity Avondale, Goodyear, and the greater Phoenix area sees, is during our monsoon season which happens during the summer months. Occasionally, we’ll see the scattered storms during the fall and winter months but for the most part, the active rainstorms happen from June to September.

Now is the optimal time for storm preparation in the event of a power outage. When this occurs, your business’s productivity can be affected greatly. To avoid this, we put together a list of options to help keep your business up and running during a power outage.

Backup Generators

A commercial generator is a solution to have enough energy and power for your for your building for a limited time. Make sure you are properly trained on how to use a generator to avoid any malfunctions or fire hazards.

Use a UPS

A UPS is known as an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) that can prevent you from losing any unsaved data on your computer. A UPS provides emergency power drawn from the computers’ own batteries that allows you enough time to save your work and properly shut off your device.

Finding Offsite Wi-Fi Connections

When the power goes off, you lose connection to your Wi-Fi router. To resolve this, if you have a laptop running on it’s own battery, you can connect to other nearby Wi-Fi connections or you can create a hotspot from your mobile device.

All the above solutions aim to keep your business productivity in motion during a power outage so you don’t fall behind or disrupt your day to day processes.

A new year is upon us with resolutions in place for some. Have you considered any resolutions concerning your home? SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix wants you to be prepared when it comes to storm preparation, so you are not left to deal with damage to your property that could have been avoided. Here are some tips to consider in making sure your home is storm proof from our yearly monsoon storms.

Storm Preparation For Your Home

  • Have your roof inspected for signs of wear and tear and make the necessary repairs.
  • Examine the trees that surround your home and trim or remove that could potentially cause damage to your home during high winds.
  • Make sure all the drains are cleaned out and work properly. A functioning drainage system allows for water during rainstorms to flow away from the foundation.
  • Thoroughly examine your doors and windows for any cracks or openings that may allow for water to enter your home.

SERVPRO Is Here To Help With Your Water Loss

Servpro trucks We are faster to any size disaster!

In our previous blog entry on SERVPRO of Scottsdale, we identified the three categories of water which are: Clean, Gray, and Black. When a water loss occurs, it may start out as clean water, especially if it’s from a broken pipe or an overflowing faucet. But this can turn into a serious situation that can evolve to a higher water category.

The longer that water sits, the more it can change and cause more damage, especially if the water loss occurs on the second floor. This can cause water to leak through the insulation and damaging not only the insulation, but drywall and other materials.

Don't Delay, Call SERVPRO Today!

Anytime a water loss occurs in your home, give SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix a call right away. The longer that you let moisture sit, the higher the chances you have of  mold growth occurring. Give us a call right away and we will discuss the best course of action needed to cleanup and dry out the moisture.
