NARPM Goes Camping!
Kelly with Erin Reed from Show Appeal Realty hanging out by the camp fire.
It's almost time again for our Annual NARPM Camping Trip and we would love to have you there!
This event has always been a great time! Let’s get together out of a meeting or our offices for some fresh air & sunshine! NARPM will provide one meal (TBD) and s’mores fixings for both Friday & Saturday campfire! The group site has a private gated entrance, 12 picnic tables and 3 central grills. There is covered food prep areas and tables under 2 ramadas including trash service and vault toilets with no running water.
How Much: Basically FREE! Each vehicle must have a "Tonto Pass" for each 24 hour period. The passes are $8 each and can be purchased online at www.fs.usda.gov/tonto OR at pretty much every store/gas station on the way out. If you need assistance with this, please contact Erin immediately.
When: Friday March 3rd – Sunday March 5th
Folks will generally begin to show up late morning thru earl evening and depart midday Sunday. You’re welcome to come and go as fits your schedule.
Where: Cave Creek Group Campground
The site is located 19 miles north of Carefree. From Carefree, take Cave Creek Rd/Forest Rd 24 to Seven Springs Day Use Area. Continue for less than ½ mile to the turn off to the group site. *The last 9 miles of FR 24 is an all-weather gravel road suitable for any 2 wheel drive cars*
Why: Because who doesn’t LOVE Arizona in March
Arizona is beautiful this time of year and isn’t it great to get outdoors! We can set up camping games, hike, go for a scenic drive and more
Who: Members, Affiliates, Families & Friends!
This event is open to friends and family of NARPM. The more, the merrier!

Sad News about SERVPRO Founder, Ted Isaacson
It is with great sadness we announce the loss of SERVPRO’s founder, Ted Isaacson. After a sudden and brief illness, Ted passed away on Friday, January 20, 2017, surrounded by wife, Doris, and his family. May God Bless Ted and the entire SERVPRO® Family during this time.
Ted was deeply loved by his family and friends and words cannot express our gratitude for his lifelong love and leadership. We offer our condolences to the entire SERVPRO® Family, and want each of you to remember Ted’s passion and leadership was always focused on helping his legacy prosper in each and every one of you.

Happy New Year!
Happy New Year
Happy New Year from your SERVPRO family!
2016 was a great year for us and we couldn't be more excited for what 2017 has in store for us.
We wrapped up 2016 with a big office move and we are finally settled in and organized at the new office and warehouse. We also had one of our water technicians leave us at the end of the year so he could join the Phoenix Police Department. While we are sad that he's gone and will miss him around here, we are very excited for him being able to live out his dreams of being a Police Officer.
One of the things I'm most excited for in 2017 is our annual SERVPRO Convention in Seattle. This will be my first time and I can't wait to have a week in cooler weather to take a break from the Phoenix heat. Convention is a great week full of educational workshops and being able to mingle with the SERVPRO family from all over the United States. It's truly an honor to be part of such a great franchise system.
We wish you all the best for 2017 and look forward to being here for you for all of your fire and water restoration needs. Whether it's big or small, we will make it like it never even happened.
Mesa Smoke and Soot Cleanup
Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.
Smoke and soot facts:
- Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
- Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
- The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.
Different Types of Smoke
There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Mesa East will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:
Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber
- Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.
Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood
- Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.
Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire
- Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor.
Our Fire Damage Restoration Services
Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions. We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage. We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

"Water, Water Everywhere/Nor any Drop to Drink"
“Water, Water Everywhere/ Nor any Drop to Drink” these famous lines from Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poem, “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” are spoken by a sailor on a becalmed ship, in the middle of the ocean, surrounded by salt water and speak to the desperation one feels when events are out of control. We at SERVPRO® of Peoria/West Glendale are familiar with helping property owners who feel that way and can help them get back in control with our experienced technicians and our state of the art drying equipment. We practice the Science of Drying….and we specialize in restoring your property. We are a “One Stop Shop” – a company who can dry your property, take care of your contents, and rebuild if necessary.

Welcome to Our Blog
Hi SERVPRO friends, my name is Kelly Kordick and I am a Marketing Representative for SERVPRO of Mesa East.
I grew up in the country 10 minutes South of Des Moines, Iowa. My graduating class size was 32 people and K-12 was all in the same building. I was active in the local 4-H program and I served as Vice President for two years and showed my horses, Bambi and Rodeo. As much as I loved the country and my small town, I always knew I wanted to move away and go to college at Arizona State University. Growing up in Iowa I developed a love for the sport of wrestling, which followed me into my college career where I was the wrestling manager at ASU.
I have been a part of the SERVPRO family for 6 years. I started working for SERVPRO of Mesa East when I was a junior at ASU majoring in Business Marketing. I thought it would be a great job to help build my resume so when I graduated I would have some experience under my belt. Little did I know I would end up loving SERVPRO and so many different aspects of the job.
I work in the marketing department as well as doing a lot of administrative tasks and have also had the opportunity to join our SERVPRO Storm Team where I travel to disasters. I can't wait to tell you all about my experience with Hurricane Sandy and all of the other storms I helped with!
Feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com if you have any questions or if you'd like to see any specific content on my blog. I'd love to hear from you :)
