Flood damage in Tucson can result from seasonal storm damage non-residents of the Southwest might find unexpected. When high winds occur during the Arizona monsoon season, homes and commercial buildings are exposed to the risk of substantial exterior damage. Airborne debris and utility pole or trees placed or growing near your property can topple, crushing roofs, breaking doors and windows, and punching or tearing holes in walls.
The heavy rains or microbursts that accompany the winds find ways to force vast quantities of water inside under loose shingles and through battered exteriors. Flash flooding also threatens Tucson homes and businesses during the rains, with walls of dirty, debris-laden crashing into foundations and seeping into crawl spaces.
Our team of construction and IICRC-trained water damage specialists move into action when we receive the call to assist with flood damage. Emergency board up and tarping services secure your property and prevent additional water incursion. Flood water is by definition Category 3, so we take all the necessary precautions when handling, collecting, and disposing of the floodwaters.
Because overland flooding is always a potential challenge, R&R Environmental is ready with the shovels and carts, prepared to move out debris before the submersible pumps and water extractors roll off our trucks to do their jobs. After we remove the visible water, we use sensitive moisture metering and thermal scanning devices to determine the patterns of migration the floodwaters took once inside.
To release any trapped water and provide access for structural drying strategies, we frequently make flood cuts a few inches above the floodwater line. Tucson Restoration is uniquely positioned to manage the aftermath of controlled demolition with our full-service construction division.
EPA-registered cleaning products and antimicrobials clear away soiling and inhibit the growth of molds, mildews, and any lingering pathogens from the Category 3 or black water. As we move closer to the goal of delivering your clean, dry, and sanitized property back in pre-flood condition, we plan for repairs and rebuilding of storm-damaged exteriors.
You need not manage a property disaster or restoration issue on your own.
Planned or unexpected, we are always ready to assist or consult with you about any disaster restoration or construction need, question, or concern.
