Don't Let Monsoon Storms Slow Down Your Business
Protect your business from water damage during rain storms.
As a property owner, it is extremely vital to your business’s productivity that all prevention and safeguards be done to thwart water damage from taking place during our busy monsoon season. Since the official start of monsoon season, which was June 15th, the Phoenix area has already seen a number of storms passing through the Valley. Yesterday, a dust storm warning was issued in which blowing dust was seen entering the Valley from the south. Dust storms typically bring high winds, blowing dust, low visibility, and in some cases, rainstorms.
Having a plan in place for your business can help prevent more severe damage from taking place and halting your business’s daily operations. We recommend having your property’s roof inspected for any damage that could potentially lead to rain leaking into the building. The building’s drainage system also needs to be inspected and cleared of any blockages that could prevent the water from properly draining out of your gutters.
SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix typically sees roof damage being a common cause for water damage occurring during monsoons. If you find your business in this situation, give us a call. We are available 24/7 for water damage emergencies.
Rain Causing Water Damage In Home
SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix can help if you are dealing with water damage.
Monsoon season is officially in full swing and began last Thursday with majority of the Phoenix area experiencing it’s first bout of rain, dust, lightning, and thunderstorms. As the season progresses with a chance of more storms expected as the weeks progress, it’s important for Avondale and Goodyear residents to prepare for emergencies which could potentially lead to water damage on your property.
One of the common causes we see take place during monsoon season is rainwater leaking into homes and businesses. To prevent this from occurring, inspect your roof for any cracks, damaged roof tiles, or any other noticeable wear and tear. We recommend contacting a licensed roofing specialist to make the necessary repairs. It’s also crucial to examine your windows and windows to make sure they are properly sealed. We’ve had instances where homeowners discovered water leaking in from their windows which led to damaged walls and flooring. You need to examine your door to make sure it is properly sealed and no water from the outside will enter. If your home is in a lower elevated area and is prone to flooding, make sure all the entrances are properly sealed and inspected for any cracks or openings that would allow water to enter. You can also purchase sandbags to use on the outside of your home to act as a barrier.

Grilling Safety Tips
Have a safe Memorial Day weekend!
In just a few short days, many people across the country will be celebrating Memorial Day weekend. This 3-day holiday weekend signals the start of summer as well as giving many individuals the time to remember U.S military personnel who lost their lives. In honor of Memorial Day, SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix would like to provide some safety tips for you and your loved ones who will be doing some outdoor grilling and BBQing this weekend. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the U.S averages about 8,700 grill and BBQ fires per year.
Grilling Safety Tips
- Situate your grill away from your home on a flat and stable surface.
- Make sure the area is clear of any grass or brush that can easily catch on fire.
- Have a fire extinguisher nearby just in case to quickly put out any flames that may occur.
- Use a grill brush to clean away grease and other buildup.
- If you are using a gas grill, check for any gas leaks on the propane tank by applying a soap and water mixture to the hose. If any bubbles appear, it’s time to get a new tank.
- If you are using lighter fluid, be cautious and apply it only to the charcoal and never to open flames.
- Do not leave the grill unattended, always be nearby.
We hope that by practicing these safety tips, you will avoid a potential fire from occurring during your Memorial Day Weekend.

Monsoon Prep For Your Avondale Home Or Business
SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix is here to help you during the 2022 monsoon season.
Monsoon season is almost here and we here at SERVPRO of Avondale/Goodyear/Southwest Phoenix want to make sure you, as a homeowner or business owner, are prepared and know what to do to prevent flooding from occurring on your property.
Consider These Tips For Your Property
As an Avondale and Goodyear resident, you know that the summer monsoons are notorious for bringing heavy rains that can lead to flooding on the roadways and in homes and businesses. Some of the common issues we see take place are roof leaks or water entering in through doors or windows. Here are some things you can do to make sure you’re ahead of the game and prepared for when those storms arrive.
- Stay informed and updated with weather alerts in your area. That way you are aware of any incoming storms and if you’re in an area where flooding occurs, prepare in advance by picking up bags of sand so you can prevent water from flowing into your home, especially if you are in a lower elevated area.
- Inspect your roof for any damage such as damaged shingles. Be sure to hire an experienced roofer to make the necessary repairs.
- Inspect trees located around your property and have them trimmed when necessary. By doing this, you prevent large tree limbs from breaking off and causing damage to your roof or windows.
- Inspect the areas around your windows or doors to make sure they are properly sealed with no gaps for water to get through.
- If you have any patio furniture, be sure to store it in your garage or storage area or make sure it is properly secured. High winds can cause your patio furniture to be blown around and could possibly lead to broken windows.
Inspect Home Appliances To Prevent Water Damage
Dealing with water damage? Give us a call!
Water damage in your home can be an emergency that will escalate quickly, especially if you don’t take action right away. Different situations from everyday appliances can cause water damage to occur. Here are some examples of common water damages that we see take place in Avondale and Goodyear homes.
The hoses located in the back of a washing machine can become damaged or worn down over time. It’s important to make sure the hoses are connected properly and to routinely inspect them for wear and tear so that you can make the necessary repairs.
Make sure to routinely inspect the seal which is located around the door and prevents water from leaking out. You also need to access the hoses which are found by removing the front access panel. These hoses are what allow for the dishwasher to fill and drain.
Your refrigerator can leak from a blocked or clogged drain or from the water line located behind the fridge. The water line can cause water to pool and collect under your fridge.
Routine inspections can help you identify wear and tear occurring on your appliances so that you can prevent a water leak from occurring in your home.
Preparing For A Power Outage In Your Business
Stay on top of your business' productivity during a power outage in your business.
The biggest storm activity Avondale, Goodyear, and the greater Phoenix area sees, is during our monsoon season which happens during the summer months. Occasionally, we’ll see the scattered storms during the fall and winter months but for the most part, the active rainstorms happen from June to September.
Now is the optimal time for storm preparation in the event of a power outage. When this occurs, your business’s productivity can be affected greatly. To avoid this, we put together a list of options to help keep your business up and running during a power outage.
A commercial generator is a solution to have enough energy and power for your for your building for a limited time. Make sure you are properly trained on how to use a generator to avoid any malfunctions or fire hazards.
Use a UPS
A UPS is known as an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) that can prevent you from losing any unsaved data on your computer. A UPS provides emergency power drawn from the computers’ own batteries that allows you enough time to save your work and properly shut off your device.
Finding Offsite Wi-Fi Connections
When the power goes off, you lose connection to your Wi-Fi router. To resolve this, if you have a laptop running on it’s own battery, you can connect to other nearby Wi-Fi connections or you can create a hotspot from your mobile device.
All the above solutions aim to keep your business productivity in motion during a power outage so you don’t fall behind or disrupt your day to day processes.
