Hurricane Delta Volunteers from Arizona

Arizona volunteers are stationed in Louisiana ready to help at a moment's notice. Some have already been there for weeks, helping people there get by other storms. As hurricane delta violently lash the gulf coast last week,  Arizonans with a determination to serve have been leaving the sunny weather of our state to help thousands facing life-or-death situations.  One family in Louisiana has gone through this three times now in 15 years they lost three homes completely, and because they're on the coast, they don't have insurance. This is something I dealt with when I lived out in Florida right outside of Tampa Bay. We were unable to find any insurance that would cover flooding issues. Luckily, the neighborhood we lived in didn’t get hit with flooding as much because we lived off of a lake that usually absorbed the runoff. But I personally knew a lot of people in our area who had flooding issues that had to cover effects of the flooding out of their own pockets. 

Stories of heartbreak and pain from previous year’s storms have prompted more than 100 Arizonans to be ready at a moment’s notice to travel to other states to help out through volunteer work opportunities with the American Red Cross. Steve and Patty Larsen are among some of those volunteers who left on a 2 week volunteer trip with the American Red Cross to help. Steve and Patty are spending retirement heading into disasters for the sake of strangers was the right decision. 

One issue they are having back east is that they are not able to house everyone in large stadiums because of the COVID19 Pandemic. In the past the had been able to put thousands of people in a large area and keep them in cots. But the global pandemic has changed all of that. The Larsons are in New Orleans volunteering for the Red Cross, helping to tend to the needs of hundreds now evacuated to more than three dozen hotels across the area. A lot of the businesses are boarded up already. The city employees drove around with sandbags and equipment to help people buckle down for Hurricane Delta. 

This was just the latest disaster in a vicious storm season, homes and buildings still boarded up and covered with tarps throughout Louisiana, after Hurricane Laura tore through in late August. “There have been a sequence of gulf storms that seem to be hitting the same immediate area,” (Michael Young of Phoenix AZ who has volunteered with the red cross for seven years.) He said they have about 13,000 people in hotels in the gulf area from Hurricane Laura. 

With so much to do with too few hands on deck there's just not enough volunteers to take Care of the need down there. According to Michael Young, they are down two-thirds of the volunteers than they would normally have and hopes others will follow their lead and head to www.redcross.org to donate their time to help others in need.

SERVPRO has several franchises helping out in the area hit by Hurricane Laura and Hurricane Delta. SERVPRO has a large Storm Response and Disaster Recovery team ready at a moments notice to mobilize around any storm event in any location to help get residents affected by natural disasters get back into their homes and businesses as quickly as possible.

How to Properly Clean your Rain Gutters to Avoid Storm Water Damage

10/16/2020 (Permalink)

Dirty rain gutter from leaf buildup Dirty Rain Gutter Buildup from Tree Leaves

Potential Water Damage from Rain Gutter Buildup

We have had some relatively mild monsoon seasons here in Mesa AZ over the past 2 years. The obvious issue that comes along with that are lack of water issues for plants, trees, etc. Not to mention the increased fire risk issues. One thing that may get overlooked, though, is the water damage risk that is due to build up in rain gutters. Usually, regular rainfall will clean out the rain gutter system of tree leave, small branches, dirt and other debris. When water from rainfall doesn’t clean that system out and the rain gutters become full it causes a risk of water overflow that can cause roof damage and water damage from water overflow in parts of the rain gutter system that become dammed up. In order to avoid this situation the rain gutters should be cleaned out at least yearly.

In this blog post we're going to cover how to clean your gutters properly and safely. Being the key and the things that you'll need to clean them.

Rain Gutter Cleaning Process

  1. First, you're going to need a good set of gloves. 
  2. Second, you're going to need yourself a good ladder depending on the height of the gutters. That will depend on the size of your ladder
  3. The third thing you're going to need one of the most important things is going to be that ladder stabilizer, the stabilizer that we have up.
  4.  The last thing you're going to need is a five-gallon bucket with something like a paint hook to attach it to the ladder so both of your hands are free..

For the ladder stabilizer you will want to get something similar to a corner buddy that stabilizes the ladder to the roof. It bolts onto the ladder, so it doesn't make a difference if the feet kick out on the ladder or if the latter slides left or right. With that stabilizer being up there, it's going to eliminate the risk of the ladder slipping out or going to the left or the right it keeps it secure up there. That's going to be the most important thing.

So, what you'll do. Is you get your bucket then you can hook it onto the ladder with a paint hook to free up both of your hands.So once you get your bucket, your hook, and your gloves, you're going up your ladder. (Make sure it is a nice strong and secure ladder.) Then you will just scoop the debris out of the rain gutter with a gloved hand and put it into the bucket. After you have gotten out all of the debris you are able to remove with your hand, you can use a brush to clean it further. The rain gutter doesn’t need to be immaculately clean, just clean enough to allow water to flow through easily. When you are done with the area that you are able to reach safely, get down off the ladder, move it over and start scooping again and keep going until the whole gutter is clean.

National Preparedness Month 2020

National Emergency Prep Month Picture with storm in background September 2020 is National Emergency Preparedness Month

September is National Preparedness Month

This year for National Preparedness Month, join your community in preparing for emergencies and disasters of all types and leading efforts to encourage the community as a whole to become more prepared. “Disasters happen” and cannot only devastate individuals and neighborhoods but entire communities.

It's not always the natural events that you have to worry about. Sometimes you have something like COVID19 hit out of the blue that catches pretty much everyone by surprise. Here are some things you can do to be prepared. 

Make and practice your Emergency Plan

Do you have an evacuation and Sheltering Place plan? Do you have a plan to communicate with your family before, during, and after an incident? Do you have an emergency supply kit?

Is your plan written out? Is it somewhere easily accessible? Make sure your family or employees are informed about and have practiced with your emergency plan. Be sure to sign up for alerts and warnings for your area and download other necessary apps to stay informed, such as the FEMA app. 

If you are in areas where the weather is a constant threat you might want to consider using windy.com to track your local weather. Their website and Android/IOS Apps have a ton of information and are easy to use.

Learn life-saving skills

  1. Do you or someone in your family know CPR? 
  2. Could you turn off your natural gas if necessary? 
  3. Do you know how to take cover in an earthquake? 

Knowing these life-saving skills could mean life or death in an emergency situation for you, your family, or your neighbors.

Check your insurance coverage

Have you reviewed your insurance coverage recently to see if you're covered in a disaster? Evaluate which hazards are relevant to your area and obtain the appropriate insurance for your home business and other property and become familiar with your coverage.

Save for an emergency

Are you prepared financially in case of a disaster? Does your family have an emergency fund for unexpected expenses after a fire? Check out email emergency Financial first aid kit for an in-depth document to help you identify and compile important documents and account information on all in one spot. Just search EFFAK on fema.gov for the free PDF.

Financial resources aren't the only thing you should think about saving for a rainy day. Having food storage is another great way to prepare for an unforeseen disaster or pandemic. We will have a followup article specifically addressing ways to prepare food storage that is really useful.

Whether it's a flood, fire, or extreme winter weather, we must work together as a team to help ensure our family, businesses, places of worship, and neighborhoods are prepared. Contact SERVPRO North Central Mesa to find out how we can help make it “Like it never even happened,” in your life.

How to stay safe during the 2020 Monsoon season in Mesa AZ

8/18/2020 (Permalink)

Dust Storm over Mesa AZ streets Mesa AZ 2020 Dust Storm from a Monsoon

Monsoon season officially started in 2020 on June 15th. This week we are finally starting to see it raise its ugly head. Twice this week Maricopa and Pinal counties have been hit by mostly nighttime monsoon winds gusts accompanied by the lightning lighting up the sky that kept my youngest son up way too late last night. There doesn’t look like there will be much of a reprieve from the heat and nighttime storms any time this week. Luckily there doesn’t seem to be much of a risk of flash flooding because the actual rainfall has not been very high and is not expected to increase either.

Usually, monsoon worries are surrounded by thoughts of property damage and flooding. In this case, the winds are definitely an issue and could very easily cause damage to residential or commercial properties. But the main concern, with the current record heatwave, is the potential of the high winds from the storms to damage properties to the point to where they are not able to be climate controlled or damaging utility lines that supply neighborhoods with power. If that happens, there could be a lot of families with spoiled refrigerator and freezer food and no way to keep themselves cool from the heat.

So, what can you do to be prepared? First of all, If you have damage to your property, call SERVPRO of North Central Mesa right away at (480) 553-7103. Next, Be informed with the following resources.

Maricopa County Heat Relief, Cooling station location maps:

Staying safe in Storm damage here in Mesa Arizona.

8/21/2019 (Permalink)

Man with an umbrella watching the storm in the distance. SERVPRO is here to help even when you can see a storm in the distance, and you know it's headed your way.

Personal protective equipment or PPE is essential with our line of work. Disaster sites are naturally a breeding ground of health and safety concerns. Injuries are also prevalent; that’s why we take specific steps to protect ourselves from these dangers. The U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that 70 percent of workers who injure their hands were not wearing work glove during an accident. Most of the complaints about wearing gloves are that they are not comfortable and or a lack of skill or mobility. It’s close to 30 percent of workers today, even in disaster workers are wearing gloves not adequate for the type of hazard or just damaged/used gloves, according to the BLS.

SERVPRO of North Central Mesa number concern is Safety. And that goes across the board for SERVPRO Locations in general. Fortunately, with modern day’s technology advances, we have extra protection, durability, and comfortable gloves.

Here are three ways to effectively prevent and avoid hand injuries on a job site.

  1. Evaluate injury risks at the begging of a job. Look for severe possibilities like sharp objects, slip zones, and hazards material. You can always consult with a safety specialist, safety engineer, or product manager to help evaluate the possible risk and risk factors that could very easily lead to hand and finger injuries on a job.
  2. Teaching and Train your employees the proper ways to behave on a job site. You could always do role-playing or simulate a hand injury. Tape up workers dominant hand with gauze and instruct them to perform a couple of simple work tasks and personal task like texting. This type of training shows how to concern they need to be when evaluating their risks while working.
  3. Finally, the best way to prevent hand injuries would be to give workers and technicians the best possible performance gloves. By outfitting our employees with the best equipment, not only do you show your customers you are taking care of your employees, but your employees know that they are being taken care of.

Here at SERVPRO, safety is a top priority for us. If you need any restoration services after a rainstorm, give SERVPRO of North Central Mesa a call and have us safely and effectively take care of your water loss in Mesa Arizona. (480) 553-7103.

2019 Slow start to the Monsoon season

8/19/2019 (Permalink)

Lightning striking all around in the Mesa, Arizona area. You can tell by the cactus that it's a local area.

Monsoons are here at the East Valley in Arizona!

 As most of you know Monsoon Season is here. Monsoon storms can be devastating, although as of late here in Mesa it has been quiet.

If you own or rent a house that is vacant right now, it would be wise to check on that property as soon as you can after a storm event or monsoon season. Within just a couple of days, if rainwater goes unchecked, it can lead to mold growth and potential mold damage. Right now, we are working on two mobile homes that were caught in the recent rain storms last month. They weren’t checked on within a couple of weeks and Mold started in the walls and baseboards.

If left unchecked, the damage in your home could go from a couple of hundred dollars to multiple thousands of damages to your property, just within a couple of days. That’s what has now happened to these Mobile homes.

What to do After Flooding?

  • Remove excess water by mopping and blotting.
  • Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removal of lamps and tabletop items.
  • Remove and prop wet upholstery and cushions.
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.
  • Turn air conditioning on for maximum drying in summer.
  • Remove colored rugs from wet carpeting.
  • Remove art objects to a safe, dry place.
  • Gather loose items from floors.

What NOT to Do After Flooding

  • Don't leave wet fabrics in place. Hang furs and leather goods.
  • Don't leave books, magazines, or other colored items on wet carpet or floors.
  • Don't use your household vacuum to remove water.
  • Don't use television or other household appliances.
  • Don't turn on ceiling fixtures if a ceiling is wet, and keep out of rooms where ceilings are sagging.

    If you have any questions or find any water/mold damage issues, call us (SERVPRO of North Central Mesa) immediately at (480) 553-7013. We're available 24 hours a day/7 day a week. Information is free! We're here to help!

Prevent Flood Damage From Storms in Mesa, AZ with a Sand-bag Barrier!

8/7/2019 (Permalink)

San-bag Barrier for Storm Flood Damage Prevention in Mesa, AZ

Monsoon season in Mesa, AZ has taken a little longer this year than most to get into gear. Since there is more time to prepare, you might consider making plans to use sand-bags to create a Sand-Bag Barrier around openings of your home to keep floodwater out of your home where it belongs!

Sandbags can be useful in redirecting stormwater and debris flows away from your home. But be sure that the sandbags are properly filled and maintained. Here's how:

  • Fill sandbags one-half full. Use sand if readily available, otherwise use soil.
  • Fold the top of sandbag down and rest the bag on its folded top. Take care in stacking the sandbags.
  • Limit placement to three layers unless a building is used as a backing or sandbags are placed in a pyramid.
  • Tamp each sandbag into place, completing each layer before you begin a new layer. Clear a path between buildings for debris flow.
  • Lay a plastic sheet in between the building and the bags to control the flow and prevent water from seeping into sliding glass doors. 

What to Expect

  • There are limits to what sandbags can do, so remember: Sandbags will not seal out water. Sandbags deteriorate when exposed to continued wetting and drying for several months.
  • If bags are placed too early, they may not be effective when needed. Sandbags are for small water flow protection -- up to two feet.
  • Protection from larger flow requires a more permanent flood prevention system. Be sure to consult with your local environmental protection department before disposing of used sandbags.
  • Sandbags that are exposed to contaminated floodwaters may pose an environmental hazard and require special

Monsoon season in Arizona. Watch out for those tree!

6/19/2019 (Permalink)

Don't let those tree's get you down during the Arizona monsoon season. Call SERVPRO, the people who are there for you, even with the lights are off.

It’s 2019 and monsoon season has started in Arizona!

A massive storm hit the Phoenix and Mesa areas last year, and one of the significant issues that come with the monsoon storms are microbursts that can cause a ton of damage to homes in their paths and happen at any second. While SERVPRO performs a moving out and pack out a job for a home in East Mesa, this was a little different than most situations. This family had a massive tree from a neighboring school fall right through the roof!

What may be unnerving to their neighbors is that the school has two more trees about the same size Which is taller than a 3-story building right along the same wall. After talking with the contractor who was working for the school to remove the actual tree, he stated that while they were working to haul away the tree that fell. The wind kicked up again, and the other trees started swaying at that same moment. Afterward, he said they hightailed it out of there until the wind died down again.

The same storm sent a 70-year-old lady to the hospital after a huge tree fell on her home

Make sure that if you have trees in your yard that you are prepaid for monsoon season. Make sure your trees are kept up and appropriately trimmed before a storm. A lot of the calls we get during monsoons either deal with water damages or trees falling. The local roofing companies love it, insurance companies... not so much!

Tornado's in Arizona? Here's what to do?

6/3/2019 (Permalink)

Since 1950 there have been over 225 tornadoes recorded in Arizona. Nine of those happened here locally in Mesa, AZ area from 1967 to 2014. Since they rarely occur in these parts, people are generally not prepared for them and don't know what to do when they do hit. I grew up in Florida, where hurricanes and tornadoes were a common occurrence. I was happy to learn they weren't too common out here after moving here. I had my share of them.

So, here are some things to think about if you find yourself in the rare path of a tornado here in Arizona.

  • Don't run outside and stay away from any window.
  • Don't open any windows. It will not decrease air pressure.
  • Winds increase in narrow spaces such as under bridges and underpasses. Don’t seek shelter under them.
  • Don’t try to outrun a tornado in your vehicle
  • Don’t stay in mobile units.
  • Find the nearest shelter or low lying area
  • Try to find a room with exterior walls
  • Cover yourself with bedding
  • Seek shelter in a permanent structure.

Here is a link to a Google map that lists all of the tornadoes that were able to be tracked in Arizona since 1950: Arizona Tornado Map

If you have damage to your property from a small little water storm or a massive tornado just blew your roof right off, give us a call. We can help you deal with your insurance and answer any questions you have! (480) 553-7103 - SERVPRO of North Central Mesa

Arizona Storms can be Gorgeous.

Good morning Fountain Hills,

 As most of you know, there was a Storm Event in Fountain Hills Last night. Storms can be devastating. An immediate action might be needed to protect your property.

If you’re any sort of property manager, or own property that is vacant right now. It would be wise to check on that property when you get the chance. Within just a couple of days, if rain water goes unchecked it can lead to growth and potential mold damage.

If left unchecked, the damage in your home could go from a couple hundred dollars to multiple thousands of damage to your property, just within a couple of days.

What to do After Flooding?

  • Remove excess water by mopping and blotting.
  • Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removal of lamps and tabletop items.
  • Remove and prop wet upholstery and cushions.
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.
