Natural Disasters in Arizona
- On April 23, 2018
No matter where you live in the United States, you are in danger of some type of natural disaster. The area of the country you live in will determine just what types of disaster you are most likely to face. In Arizona, many of the disasters cause fire damage, water damage, or mold. EHS has experience in resolving most types of natural disasters and bringing peace back to where the disaster struck.
Types of Natural Disasters in Arizona
Nobody can predict when a natural disaster is going to occur with certainty, but we can predict the types of natural disasters in Arizona that you may face.
Monsoons provide a break in the dry desert, however, they also bring with them the chance of flooding and water damage. The dry earth can’t soak up the excess water as quickly as needed and the water needs a place to go, which is often into basements. This water can cause weak foundations to crack, creating a perfect environment for mold growth and other water-related damage to the structure of your home. Restoration needs to occur as quickly as possible to minimize damage.
Fires often cause damage before they are even noticed. Once they get big enough to become natural disasters, fire and smoke damage can destroy your home both inside and out. It’s important to know how to deal with the ash clean up as well as any water damage that occurs when the fire is being put out. Fire damage can result from a number of things including monsoons, tornados, or lightning that strikes a tree or your home, to name a few. Electrical wires can become loose and be another fire hazard. Our fire restoration services include smoke odor removal in addition to the obvious structural damage.
Landslides can result in both fire and water damage to your home. They are also one of the biggest mold hazard producers of all the natural disasters. As the mudslides into any areas it can reach, basements are prime candidates. Mold can start growing within two hours of the landslide, creating a health hazard on top of the structural damage. Lines torn by the heavy mud can catch fire and a structure can go up completely within a matter of minutes.
