Monsoon and Storm Damage

Storms in Arizona can Strike Instantaneously, it is Important to React Just as Fast!

Arizona storms have long had a reputation for being quick-hitting, powerful, and unforgiving in the severity of the damages left behind. During the Monsoon season it is not uncommon for storms to have hurricane force winds accompanied by literally thousands of air to ground lightening strikes. Damages can be extensive and likely include: damaged roofs, broken windows, uprooted trees, power outages with electrical lines down and flash flooding. The following pictures illustrate flooding caused by a monsoon to a warehouse and office space.

Whether insured or not, it is important to document the damage (photographs/video) and to have mitigation procedures performed by a Qualified Contractor. It is totally inappropriate to delay the start of storm damage mitigation while waiting for a claims representative to arrive on the scene to evaluate the loss. It is the property owner’s responsibility to take reasonable and prudent measures designed to preserve, protect, and secure property from further damage. By delaying action, you are providing for microbial growth and amplification and the continued degradation of the structural materials involved. The owner of this property delayed calling a damage restoration contractor and as you can see by some of these pictures, mold started growing on the dry wall.

Because the owner of this commercial building delayed in calling us to repair the storm damage, the job became far more than just a simple drying of the building. As you can see from the mold growth in the above pictures, we needed to dispose of all of the flooring and the drywall on the lower parts of all of the walls.
