SERVPRO Arrives within Hours at Your Arlington Home to Begin Flood Damage Clean Up

Intense thunderstorms, heavy rain, or prolonged storms can pose a threat to your Arlington property. Storm damage comes in many forms, and you may start to see water infiltrating your garage, ceiling, or ground floor. No matter the issue, it would be best if you handled it quickly before the damage multiplied. SERVPRO is here 24/7 to address the fallout after a storm, including powerful pumps and drying equipment to make sure that your property gets left “Like it never even happened.”

Rather than trying to grab a shop vac to pull up water or trying to get out the tarps when you have a leaking roof from storms, SERVPRO has you covered. After our assessment, we will put a plan in motion that helps us bring your property back to excellent condition. This plan may include:

  • Rapid water extraction
  • Thorough drying
  • Dehumidification to bring down the relative humidity
  • Cleaning, sanitizing, and deodorization
  • Controlled demolition services, as needed

Details About Interior Humidity

Our team must address relative humidity (RH) throughout your home during the water damage remediation process. Specific storm systems may also bring an increase in moisture. Once RH rises in your home, there is the potential for black mold growth. Our technicians monitor humidity and indoor air quality (IAQ) to prevent mold infestation, rot, and costly secondary damage.

Moisture detection tools play a significant role in all of our water removal services projects. Some of the technology we carry on our Green Fleet service vehicles help us to measure and monitor moisture found in:

  • Furnishings
  • Walls
  • Flooring
  • Ceilings
  • Contents

Basement flooding and interior flood damage are no match for SERVPRO of Marysville/Arlington! Call us at (360) 658-0506 to have a crew dispatched to your property when you need us.

SERVPRO Takes a Multifaceted Approach When Carrying Out Black Mold Damage Repairs in Arlington

If you notice signs such as a musty smell or black spots on surfaces soon after addressing a mold issue, you likely have a persistent mold problem. Standard mold remediation processes such as cleaning and drying are less likely to provide long-term results.

Before embarking on mold removal at Arlington business premises with a persistent infestation, it is essential to establish the likely causes. Although leaky roofs and pinhole leaks in pipes are the common drivers of mold infestations, other issues can cause problems too. Significant variations in humidity and temperature levels can lead to condensation, thus providing the moisture mold needs even when there is no water leak. Our SERVPRO technicians check whether there is an issue with your HVAC system. 

Growth might also persist if mold remediation cleaning does not incorporate antimicrobial and antifungal products. Our SERVPRO technicians incorporate various chemical agents, including Quats, which rapture microorganism cell walls and phenolics that work against bacteria and fungi. With our service, you can expect long term results from:

  • Mold remediation
  • Basement mold remediation
  • Attic Mold Removal
  • Black Mold Damage Repairs

SERVPRO of Marysville / Arlington enhances mold removal helping minimize business disruptions. Call us at (360) 658-0506.

SERVPRO Helps Manage Underlying Issues While Delivering Water Removal Services in Marysville

On the northern edge of the Snohomish River delta lies Marysville, the second-largest city in the county, after Everett. It was established in 1872 as a trading post in the Tulalip Indian Reservation. The growth of the city over the years can be attributed to several things, including transport systems such as the Great Northern Railway line and agricultural products such as lumber and strawberry. The high number of strawberry fields in the 1920s earned it the nickname “Strawberry City.” 

The topography of the area was one of the factors that favored thriving agricultural exploits. The downtown area is low, lying at only 5 feet above sea level, while the highest point near Smokey Point is 160 feet. In the early 1900s, controlled flooding of the Snohomish River allowed silt accumulation in the low lying areas, thus providing fertile soil for farming. However, as the area urbanized, the low-lying setting would lead to destructive flooding of homes and other properties.

Mountainous Surroundings 

The city has unique surroundings, with three picturesque mountains dominating the views of its skyline. The Cascade Mountains and Mount Pilchuck lie to the east of the city, while Olympic Mountain stands out on the west. 

For people who prefer spending time outdoors, there is no need to venture far from the city limits since there are several parks in the area, including:

  • Gissberg Twin Lakes

The two man-made lakes formed at a site where gravel was extracted for the construction of I-5. Unlike natural water bodies, the two lakes are rectangular. In the vicinity, there is a 44-acre wooded area with picnic areas, walking trails, and a swim area.

  • Ebey Waterfront Park

The park and boat launch facility is relatively recent, having been launched in 2005. It was created as an intertidal marine park catering to boating needs while attracting shoppers and tourists to the downtown area.

  • Deering Wildflower Acres

The trail serves as a survey site for biologists at the Western Washington University but allows sightseeing. However, pets are not allowed. Since it is preserved in its natural state, it provides a great escape from the bustling city.

How Does SERVPRO Help Marysville Residents Manage Flood Damage?

Flooding incidents can be a catalyst to many problems in a home, including deep soiling or contamination, collapsing assemblies such as ceilings, and even mold. Although flooding is largely uncontrollable, how you manage the aftermath has a significant impact on the outcome. 

The steps that matter most after flood damage incidents in Marysville are those that help stop further deterioration. Such deterioration can be from microbial growth processes, physical changes such as swelling or warping of materials as well as staining. Various intervention processes, including moisture management and decontamination, help improve the outcome. 

Our SERVPRO teams follow established procedures such as setting up dehumidifiers within the property immediately on arrival to keep relative humidity levels below 60%.
