Remember, Mother Nature is in Control 

We have all heard or read the news headlines about climate change and the daily impact it has on our lives here in Yuma and our surrounding area. There are also major natural disasters that could impact our part of the world. Let’s look at these.

Earthquakes

We all know that we live in an earthquake prone area. That’s why we should be prepared and have emergency supplies like water, food, and a first aid kit on hand. For businesses, SERVPRO of Yuma East, Foothills offers a free emergency ready plan to help business owners be ready for whatever happens. Check it out, call us today at 928-247-1180.

Monsoon Rains

We experience an annual monsoon season. Some years it’s more intense than other years. If your home or business is in or near a flood zone, be sure to have a supply of sandbags at the ready. Monitor weather and storm reports and be prepared to evacuate. SERVPRO of Yuma East, Foothills provides flood damage cleanup services. However, unless you have special flood coverage, flooding is not usually covered by insurance policies

Wind Damage

Wind damage is usually covered by insurance policies which is a good thing because winds can rip shingles from roofs, topple trees and power poles, and blow debris around causing a great amount of property damage. We don’t have to experience a tornado to suffer wind damage. SERVPRO of Yuma East provides cleanup and reconstruction repairs.

Dust Storms

Dust storms are something that happens to people that live in a desert. SERVPRO of Yuma East, Foothills can clean residential and commercial HVAC systems and other damage caused by dust storms.

Wildfires

We tend to think of wildfires as a problem for forested locations. Wildfires can spread through desert and grassland environments, and they will burn agricultural crops and structures that are in their path. Wildfires also produce smoke pollution. SERVPRO of Yuma East, Foothills is well equipped to provide cleanup the damage caused by wildfires. We have travelled as a SERVPRO Storm Team member to California to participate in wildfire cleanup.

Hail & Freeze Events

As drastic weather events take place all around the globe it is not unrealistic to imagine our desert area suffering from a hail damage or a heavy freeze. This very thing happened in Texas in 2021. It could happen here. The problem is our buildings and infrastructure is not designed to handle a prolonged freeze event. When there is a freeze warning cover outdoor plants, cover outdoor plumbing fixtures, and be prepared for a loss of electricity and water.

As a proud member of the SERVPRO Storm Team, we’re prepared to travel to other regions that need help with storm damage cleanup. However, we are also prepared to help here, in our own communities, any time we are needed. SERVPRO of Yuma East, Foothills, 928-247-1180.
