We received an after hours call from a local, commercial clothing store. Their toilets had over flowed so, they called out a plumber who stopped the leak but then left the bathrooms covered in sewage water. We were able to have two technicians out to their store within the hour to inspect the water damage. Once they extracted the sewage water they cleaned the restrooms and then sprayed everything with Benefect which is a botanical disinfectant. This disinfectant will kill 99.9% of all germs and fungi. It is safe to use around children, pets, the elderly and chemically sensitive individuals. This is very important in commercial stores as you don’t have to worry about chemical contamination, over spray and evacuating building occupants. Once everything was cleaned and disinfected they sent up some air movers to dry out the areas as quickly as possible so that the store could get back to normal. For questions about our water damage restoration services call our office at 623-321-2102.
Arizona water conservation is extremely important as we live in the desert. We used about seven million acre-feet of water, which is more than 2.2 trillion gallons, in 2017. About twenty one percent of that went to municipal and residential use. As Arizona residents we can help protect this precious resource for future generations. When it comes to saving water at your home, small adjustments can have a big impact. Try the following water saving tips:
- Dishwashers typically use less water than washing dishes by hand. Newer appliances now save even more water and energy.
- Use the garbage disposal sparingly. Instead, compost vegetable food waste and save gallons every time.
- Soak pots and pans instead of letting the water run while you scrape them clean.
- When doing laundry, match the water level to the size of the load.
- Washing dark clothes in cold water saves water and energy, and helps your clothes retain their color.
- Time your shower, to keep it under 5 minutes. you’ll save up to 1,000 gallons per month..
- Toilet leaks can be silent! Be sure to test your toilet for leaks at least once a year.
