Tenant Delay in Scheduling Repair

Had a rental in AZ where the tenant told me back in end of January that there was a leak in the master bath enclosure. I had since then scheduled a Home Warranty tech to try and fix it. After a month of scheduling and re-scheduling, I found out it wasn't covered. I then had the property mgmt company use their vendor to fix this. It's been 3 weeks since then and they finally got a schedule locked down but it's not til the end of March - which is two weeks away. If the damage has worsten because of this long delay, can I charge the tenant back for negligence or delay? How is this normally handled and is there a way of making sure future repairs do not go on for months again before they get scheduled? Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Jon, for the future there is this doc:  As far as charging additional money, you would most likely need to consult an attorney. You may be able to deduct from their security deposit.
