Water Damage Restoration in San Tan Valley AZ

If you have lived in the San Tan Valley area for any length of time, you know that some of the houses in certain neighborhoods were a bit hastily put together. In certain neighborhoods (Johnson Ranch…) the 10 to 15-year itch is starting to show some of those deficiencies. If you live in that area and some of the areas right around there, you might notice that things are just falling apart, pipes are breaking, tape joints are coming undone, etc. Hopefully,  you don’t get caught off guard by a summer monsoon. Luckily they have been pretty mild the past 2 years. Still, more and more homeowners and renters are having to call water damage restoration and mold remediation companies to fix problems that never should have been an issue. A lot of the times the water issues manifest as an emergency type event so they are covered by insurance. However, most people don’t know that mold issues are generally not covered by insurance as they are considered a maintenance issue. Generally, mold issues are caught too late and can easily cost thousands of dollars to fix.


One thing you can do to avoid water damage restoration issues in San Tan Valley is to check your water heater once a month. after about 10 to 15 years, if you haven’t had to replace it, it will probably become an issue sometime soon. One of the other most common water damage culprits is the toilet supply line. They should be checked once a year for maintenance.  If you live in the San Tan Valley area, I would check it more often than that. A lot of the building materials used by some of the construction companies out in that area were a little suspect due to cost-cutting measures. Here are some other tips:
