The End of May Means More than Just Memorial Day to Homeowners in Arizona: More Heat, Monsoon Rains & Mold


The hum of air conditioners across Arizona is part of the annual ritual that means summer is just around the corner. With the extremes of 110 degree summer temperatures just days or weeks away signals yet another annual phenomenon in the Southwest, the approaching monsoon season.

Although the average official start of the monsoon season for Central Arizona is still several weeks away on July 7th, this is the time of year that Arizona homeowners need to begin to prepare their homes for the heavy monsoon rains. Living in the Sonoran desert climate, with its exceptionally dry spring season, many homeowners forget to prepare their homes for the coming winds, dust, and rain until it’s too late.

Global Prevention Services (GPS), one of the leading mold prevention and remediation companies with national headquarters in Scottsdale, would like to remind Arizona’s homeowners that they should begin preparing their homes for the coming monsoon season now to prevent moisture intrusions and subsequent mold growth.

“This is the time of year to begin checking your home for conditions that need to be repaired before, not after, the heavy rains arrive,” stated Paul Cochrane, Director of Public Relations for GPS. “Areas to have inspected include roofs, blocked gutters, seals around windows and doors, and proper grading around structures, especially for new construction that has not yet faced its first heavy rains.”

GPS has been providing Arizona homeowners with proven solutions to the persistent problem of mold in homes and other buildings. “One of the absolute ‘musts’ when dealing with any water intrusion to your property is to immediately repair the cause and to take action to adequately dry the affected areas,” reported Michael Himelfarb, CEO of GPS. The company offers ‘no charge’ inspections as a key part of their customer service commitment to help people understand and deal with these types of concerns.
