Next Steps to Resolve Water Damage in Your Tempe Home

Tempe Water Damage FAQs
When should I call my insurance company?
Take photos and keep notes to document the loss. But, unless your water damage is significant, we recommend you wait to contact your insurance company until we evaluate the damage. It may be best for you to avoid an insurance claim (or even letting your insurance company know about it) for smaller water losses. We can help you mitigate this process.
How do I protect my home from storm damage and monsoons?
1) The City of Tempe recommends that you trim trees so they are away from windows and roofs, clear debris from your gutters and downspouts, secure loose items on your property, and unplug expensive electronics. The city has sand and bags available at two locations throughout monsoon season (bring your own shovel):
Solid Waste Compost Facility: 1001 N. Rio Road
Benedict Sports Complex: 490 W. Guadalupe Road
Do I need a flood insurance policy?
Your homeowners' policy doesn't cover flooding. You'll need a separate policy. Tempe takes part in the National Flood Insurance Program, which may earn you a policy discount. You can also seek coverage through your own insurance company.
Is my Tempe home in a floodplain?
Tempe flood hazard areas, which are primarily in and around the Salt River and adjacent to elevated canals or railroads, are shown on the FEMA Flood Zone Determination Map. You can also check the Maricopa County Floodplain Information guide.
Visit the City of Tempe website for additional flood management information. Note that all homes are in a floodplain. It's a matter of determining whether your particular home is in a low, medium, or high-risk area.

Our Water Restoration Process
- Step 1: Identification and Safety
First, we will confirm the source of the water damage and stop any flooding. We also determine the contamination category. And we communicate safety issues to help you take action as needed.
- Step 2: Extraction and Dry-Out
Next, we remove the water in your home with industrial equipment such as pumps, vacuums, air scrubbers, dehumidifiers, or other extraction tools. A quick dry-out is essential to reducing mold growth and secondary water damage.
- Step 3: Protection and Demolition
At this phase, we salvage the property and belongings we can clean and contain using a contents packout service. And remove contaminated items that cannot be restored. We then complete demolition of destroyed items and materials.
- Step 4: Testing and Cleanup
Cleaning involves antimicrobial, antibacterial, disinfectant treatments, and deodorization. Our preferred product line is Benefect. Professional sampling and laboratory testing ensure we restore a healthy environment (if needed).
- Step 5: Repair and Restoration
We offer reconstruction services from minor repairs to a full build-out as needed to restore your home to pre-flood condition.

These guys were fantastic! It was a pleasure dealing with Nathan and Jason. My condo flooded and Nathan and his team were at my house in no time to start the clean up process. Jason and his team had my place looking like new again; as soon as everything was squared away with the insurance company. I would highly recommend these guys!
