We received an emergency call for a department store that was currently experiencing water damage. One of their public toilets had overflowed. They called out a plumber who stopped the leak and fixed the problem but then they were left with sewage water all over the baseboards, walls and tile floors. We sent two technicians over to their store within an hour. After extracting all of the sewage water, they then used a botanical disinfectant to clean all of the surfaces. Our disinfectant kills 99.9% off all germs and bacteria. It’s also safe to use around children, pets, the elderly and chemically-sensitive individuals, so you can relax about chemical contamination, over spray & evacuating building occupants. For questions about our water damage restoration services or products please call 623-321-2102.

The Groves is a community in Tolleson, AZ. The City of Tolleson shared the following Water Wise article in June, 2009. Every day water consumers across the united States unknowingly waste millions of gallons of water. Listed below are a few factors that contribute to wasting water:

  • Taking excessively long showers
  • Washing dishes by hand rather than using a dishwasher
  • Leaking water through faucets and toilet bowls
  • Washing laundry without full loads
  • Excessive toilet flushing

To prevent excessive water waste, consider the following water conservation tips:

  • Install faucet aerators
  • Decrease the length of taking a shower and install a low flow shower head
  • Use the dishwasher and washing machine with only full loads
  • Scrape excessive food off without the use of water before putting dishes into the dishwasher
  • Don’t use the toilet as a garbage can, flush toilet paper only
  • Don’t leave the water ion while brushing your teeth
  • Ensure that sprinkler systems are operating correctly and that outside hose bibs are fully closed and not leaking
