Fire Extinguisher Safety Tips for Tempe?

10/11/2021 (Permalink)

A portable fire extinguisher in a home. We are trusted leaders in fire restoration in Maricopa County.

The National Fire Protection Association recommends using portable home fire extinguishers when:

  • The fire is confined to a small area, such as a wastebasket, and is not growing
  • Everyone has exited the building
  • The fire department has or is being called
  • The room is not filled with smoke

SERVPRO® of North Tempe and Mesa East offers these fire extinguisher safety tips from the NFPA:

  • To operate a fire extinguisher, remember the word PASS:
    • Pull the pin. Hold the extinguisher with the nozzle pointing away from you, and release the locking mechanism
    • Aim low. Point the extinguisher at the base of the fire
    • Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly
    • Sweep the nozzle from side-to-side
  • Select a multi-purpose extinguisher that can be used on all types of home fires that is large enough to put out a small fire but not so heavy as to be difficult to handle
  • Choose a fire extinguisher that carries the label of an independent testing laboratory
  • Read the instructions that come with the fire extinguisher and become familiar with its parts and operation before a fire breaks out
  • Install fire extinguishers close to an exit and keep your back to a clear exit when you use the device

Water Damage Timeline for Riverside?

10/4/2021 (Permalink)

The face of a clock is shown. We restore water-damaged homes and businesses in Maricopa County.

Riverside residents can rely on SERVPRO® of North Tempe and Mesa East to restore water-damaged properties. No job is too big for us. When left unmitigated, water can cause serious damage. Here is a water damage timeline that describes the damage water can do over time:

Within Minutes

  • Water quickly spreads throughout your property, saturating everything in its path
  • Water is absorbed into walls, floors, upholstery, and belongings
  • Furniture finishes may bleed, causing permanent staining on carpets
  • Photographs, books, and other paper goods start to swell and warp

Hours 1 - 24:

  • Drywall begins to swell and break down
  • Metal surfaces begin to tarnish
  • Furniture begins to swell and crack
  • Dyes and inks from cloth and paper goods spread and stain
  • A musty odor appears

48 Hours to 1 Week:

  • Mold and mildew may grow and spread
  • Doors, windows, and studs swell and warp
  • Metal begins to rust and corrode
  • Furniture warps and shows signs of mold
  • Paint begins to blister
  • Wood flooring swells and warps
  • Serious biohazard contamination is possible

More Than 1 Week:

  • Restoration time and cost increase dramatically; replacing contaminated materials and structural rebuilding maybe extensive
  • Structural safety, mold growth, and biohazard contaminants pose serious risks to occupants

Smoke Odor Removal Services for Meyer Park?

9/28/2021 (Permalink)

Smoke is billowing out of a commercial business.  We restore fire-damaged businesses in Maricopa County.

SERVPRO® of North Tempe and Mesa East has been restoring fire-damaged businesses in Meyer Park for years. Here are some of the methods we may use to eliminate smoke damage:

Air Scrubber or Filter

  • An HVAC air scrubber or HEPA air purifier is useful for capturing larger smoke molecules. There will still be some residual odor from smaller molecules or surface residues.

Ozone Generator

  • An ozone generator is a fast and highly effective smoke odor restoration method. These machines emit ozone, which follows the same paths through the air as smoke and oxidizes any residual traces in the air or on surfaces.

Thermal Fogging

  • Thermal fogging is an intensive treatment involving fogging machines. After residents evacuate, smoke cleaning professionals fill a structure with petroleum distillates that neutralize odors and then ventilate the area.

Hydroxyl Generator

  • A hydroxyl generator is a slower and gentler alternative to ozone. These machines rely on ultraviolet light to generate hydroxyl radicals that eliminate smoke odors. It will take about three to five days of continuous operation to achieve the same results as a single ozone treatment.

Vapor Modification

  • Vapor modification is another odor elimination method that relies on aromatic compounds and a blower or fan to neutralize smoke odor.

Flooding in Tempe?

9/21/2021 (Permalink)

Water is shown overflowing a roadway. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Maricopa County.

Flash flood warnings were in effect for parts of Maricopa County in August. SERVPRO® of North Tempe and Mesa East wants everyone to be safe in flooding situations and offer these tips from the Arizona Emergency Information Network:

  • If told to evacuate, do so immediately
  • Listen to the Emergency Alert System, NOAA Weather Radio, or local alerting systems for current emergency information and instructions
  • Be aware of streams, drainage channels, canyons, and other areas known to flood suddenly. Flash floods can occur in these areas with or without typical warnings, such as rain clouds or heavy rain.  Move immediately to higher ground.
  • Do not walk through moving water. If you have to walk in water, walk where the water is not moving. Use a stick to check the firmness of the ground in front of you.
  •  Do not drive into flooded areas. If floodwaters rise around your car, abandon the car and move to higher ground if you can do so safely.
    • Stay off of bridges over fast-moving water
  •  Do not camp or park your vehicle along streams, rivers, or creeks, particularly during threatening conditions
  • If trapped in a building, then go to its highest level. Do not climb into a closed attic. You may become trapped by rising floodwater. Go on the roof only if necessary.

Home Fire Sprinklers in Riverside?

8/30/2021 (Permalink)

A fire sprinkler is shown mounted on a ceiling in a home. Home fire sprinklers save lives in Maricopa County!

Everything you wanted to know about home fire sprinklers (but were afraid to ask).

Home sprinklers are environmentally friendly. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), home sprinklers reduce the amount of water run-off and pollution, reduce fire damage by up to 71 percent, and reduce water used to put out a fire by as much as 91 percent!

SERVPRO® of North Tempe and Mesa East responds to fire damage emergencies throughout the year in Riverside, and we witness firsthand the difference home fire sprinklers make in reducing fire damage. Here are some interesting facts about home fire sprinklers from the NFPA:

  • Home fire sprinklers save lives and property. In many situations, a family who has survived a fire will also have their “home” to live in and enough of the items and space in their home to continue living their lives as they did before.
  • A home fire sprinkler system can reduce the homeowner’s insurance premium
  • Cigar smoke or burnt toast will not activate a fire sprinkler. Only the high temperature of a fire will activate the sprinkler.
  • A home fire sprinkler system is easy to maintain. Just inspect your home to make sure the sprinklers are not blocked by something that would prevent the water from coming out.

A person is looking at mold growing by a cabinet. We are trusted leaders in mold remediation in Maricopa County!

Mold situation in Meyer Park?

Do you know what to do if you think you have mold in your house? SERVPRO® of North Tempe and Mesa East are trusted leaders in mold mitigation and remediation. When you suspect you have a mold problem, the first thing to do is hire an industrial hygienist. They will take readings of the air to determine how much mold is present in the atmosphere and tell you what type of mold you have.

The industrial hygienist will write a report describing the protocol to be followed to mitigate the mold damage. SERVPRO® of North Tempe and Mesa East will send a team to contain the mold and begin the mitigation process. We will install a containment chamber to prevent cross-contamination to other uncontaminated areas of the structure. 

Antimicrobial chemicals are used to kill mold. Powerful air scrubbers are installed to clean the air in the infected area. After we complete this process, the industrial hygienist will return and retest the air and give a new report stating that the mold has been remediated.

The source of the water leak that has caused the mold will also need to be identified and repaired to ensure the mold does not return.

Call Us Today!

SERVPRO® of North Tempe and Mesa East has restoration technicians on call 24-hours a day, every day in Meyer Park. Call us today at 480-456-0000. We’ll remediate your mold damage, “Like it never even happened.”
