Storm damage has always been a worry for home and business owners, but in recent years, the threat of severe weather has continued to increase. According to the Center for American Progress, extreme weather events are expected to become up to 30% more frequent, which means that property owners need to be prepared to prevent storm damage — and to be ready to start storm damage repairs quickly once it happens.
When it comes to storm damage restoration in Arizona, R2 Fire & Water is ready to provide you with the services you need, right when you need them. With a team of trained, experienced technicians, we are equipped to handle any storm damage repairs that may arise, from water damage due to flooding or leaks to fire remediation after a lightning strike.

When Emergencies Strike, R2 Fire & Water Is There
No matter how well you plan for severe weather, storm damage can quickly become an emergency. With representatives available 24/7, R2 Fire & Water is prepared to help you take care of your weather-related emergencies as they arise. When it comes to storm damage restoration, getting repairs started quickly is essential.
Because there is no way to completely eliminate their spores, mold and mildew can start to grow quickly when water enters a structure, often in as little as 24 to 48 hours. This means that finding a contractor that can provide rapid response service to your home or place of business is one of the most important parts of storm damage repair. Preventing mold growth is much easier than removing it once it has started.
R2 Fire & Water also provides services to prevent further damage to your home. This includes covering your damaged roof to prevent leaks, providing fans and dehumidifiers to remove excess moisture and promote drying, and offering board-up service if you need to vacate your home, which can help keep intruders out.
Water Damage to Your Property
When your home or business suffers water damage as a result of severe weather, there are some steps you can take to start the restoration process, including:
- Removing rugs, mats, and other loose floor coverings
- Hanging up wet bedding and fabrics, including pillows and blankets
- Getting rid of excess water with mops, squeegees, or towels
- Turning on your AC and/or dehumidifiers
- Placing a barrier between wet carpets and wooden furniture
Your next move should be to contact a company like R2 Fire & Water. We have specialized equipment like pumps and fans that can quickly remove large volumes of excess water from your home. Our team can also perform inspections to assess the extent of the damage.
How to Deal with Fire Damage
Any time there is a fire in your home or place of business, your first concern should be safety. Once the fire is extinguished, contact R2 Fire & Water to start the restoration process quickly. Resist the urge to start cleaning the area yourself — not only will your insurance company need documentation, but fires can also generate a number of harmful chemicals, which storm damage restoration companies are trained to handle.
After most fires, you may have to deal with both fire and water damage on the property, usually due to efforts to put out the fire. This makes storm damage repair more complicated. You will need a company that is not only experienced, but one that is also certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC). This certification shows that your technicians are qualified to safely handle all of the restoration tasks that are necessary to get your property back to normal.
