No one ever wants to discover that they have mold caused by a small roof leak from the last rainstorm. But if water, mold, fire, or biohazard disaster happens, SERVPRO is the exact company you will want in your contact list. They will coach you through the immediate steps you need to take while dispatching the emergency response crew to your home or business.
SERVPRO is fast to show up on your worst day as the hero to make it all right. Their motto couldn’t be more appropriate: “Like it never happened!”
“Being proactive with your home systems can prevent many disasters from happening in the first place,” says Kevin Frost, Marketing Manager of SERVPRO of North Central Mesa. “A house should have a thorough evaluation of all its systems every 15-20 years, but each system has its own unique expiration date.”
This system requires annual maintenance to prevent surprise breakdowns and to keep it running efficiently. While there are things you can do yourself, some things should be left to an HVAC pro, such as tightening electrical connections, lubricating moving parts, checking refrigerant charge, and more.
Roofs have an expiration date of approximately 15 years. It’s usually the layer under the tile that causes the leaks and damage.
Water heaters can last 8-12 years, depending on the regular maintenance they receive. It’s not unusual for a neglected water heater to cause flooding in the home.
TOILET SUPPLY LINE
90% of SERVPRO’s work comes from toilet floods caused by cracked plastic nuts. These nuts are only good for 4-5 years and should be inspected for leaks annually. Hand-tighten them to avoid damaging them.
“Our franchise is a family company that focuses on the needs of our clients,” says Kevin. “We realize that when our clients call us, it’s because they aren’t having a good day. We are there to coach them through the process and to coordinate the trained response team.”
SERVPRO is a full-service restoration company with 24-hour emergency service. They also provide Reconstruction and Renovation services, with specific Certifications for Aging-In-Home Renovations. They provide free estimates during the workweek and help you as you work with your insurance company. SERVPRO of North Central Mesa can improve your home by opening your floor plan to allow more space or increase functionality by installing a railing or curbless walkway and grab bars.
Kevin also recommends this important tip: “Talk with your insurance agent to make sure you know what is- and is not- covered!”
