Ever come across a HEPA vacuum and wonder what it is? HEPA stands for High-Efficiency Particulate Air. HEPA vacuums are different from your regular vacuums at home in that they contain commercial grade filters. These filters are capable of catching very tiny, micron-sized particles which is extremely important for water damage restoration jobs. A true HEPA filter like ours can catch 99.97 percent of all indoor airborne particles larger than 0.3 microns. When there is led, dust, microbial growth, or asbestos a HEPA vacuum is a must have. Our technicians also use air scrubbers and when that device is used in combination with a HEPA vacuum they can completely control the debris in the air and help remove any microbial growth. This will provide a safer and healthier air quality for you and your family. For any questions on our water damage equipment or restoration services please feel free to call our office at 602-362-4883.
Arizona residents living in the desert know that water is an extremely important resource. Most Arizona cities offer water conservation programs which will help educate, give you helpful tips and ideas, and some even provide rebates to help you save money. By starting a low water-use lifestyle you and your family can help protect water for future generations. And by reducing your water use, you will decrease how much energy you use which will help you reduce your monthly bills at your home. As much as 70% off residential water use is used outdoors. This is from landscaping, swimming pools and car washing. Lawn care uses a lot of water. By planting native plants that are low-water use you can reduce your water use by 50 to 75 percent. Swimming pools can lose a lot of water from evaporation. During warm weather a pool can lose up to 1/4″ of water per day. You can reduce this evaporation by installing a solar pool cover, limiting the use of water features such as fountains and by lowering the temperature on heated pools. Car washing uses about 100 gallons, on average. By taking your car to an automatic car wash you will only use about 15 to 60 gallons. By using these tips you will reduce your water waste, saving both energy and money.
