Water Damage to Your Bentonville Property Has Many Causes

3/31/2021 (Permalink)

Graphic with title and logo SERVPRO Says Do Not Let Water Damage to Your Bentonville Property Ruin your day

Rain, Ice Dams, Leaky Pipes, and Broken Drains Can Lead to Water Damage

Flooding from overflowing creeks and streams can destroy a home in under a day. Even if the damage isn't immediate and obvious, just a few inches of standing water can cause thousands of dollars in repair and replacement costs if it isn't removed quickly and efficiently. Typically, rainwater or a broken water line causes less water damage. With the recent freeze burst water pipes and ice damming are two very relevant and real factors that may cause water damage.

It's not likely that your home is going to flood, but water removal in your Bentonville home can be a necessity at some point in time. SERVPRO has the experience and equipment needed to accomplish it quickly and efficiently.

Our response team can start with one or more pumps. The size and number will depend on the amount of water present and the size and type of your home. For example, a duplex will require at least two pumps even if there is only an inch of standing water. A single family home may require a single extractor. But a large capacity pump is also sometimes needed.

After the extraction of pooling water, our SERVPRO technicians will deploy specialized vacuums that extract water from carpet fibers and the cracks between floorboards without damaging them. We have special large surface area pads, called suction mats, for this purpose. If done quickly, these extractors can draw water from the pads underneath carpets to restore them as well. This process also serves to prevent floorboards from warping due to extensive submersion in water.

While extraction from your floors is being performed, other team members will place air movers in key areas to help draw water out of the surrounding walls. It may also be necessary to set up heaters and dehumidifiers to extract water from drywall before it is compromised and has to be replaced. Besides the physical damage, extracting the water will also help prevent the expansion and growth of mold. Water soaked drywall is a perfect food source for mold spores.

SERVPRO of Benton & Carroll Counties should be your first choice for any residential or commercial restoration needs. Our team of professionals is trained to assess the damage and potential threats, extract and contain the affected area, dry, and restore your property to preloss condition.

Graphic with title and logo Call SERVPRO today if you find yourself with fire damage!

After any fire damage situation, your primary focus should be safety:

  • Is it safe to stay in the house?
  • Electrical and "slip and fall" hazards are some of the most prevalent concerns.
  • Only do activities that are safe for you to perform.
  • Wet materials can be VERY heavy. Be careful!

What to do after a fire

  • Limit movement in the home to prevent soot particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpets.
  • Keep hands clean so as not to further soil upholstery, walls and woodwork.
  • Place clean towels or old linens on rugs, upholstery and carpet traffic areas.
  • If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator and prop doors open.
  • Clean and protect chrome with light coating of petroleum jelly or oil.
  • Wash houseplants on both sides of leaves.
  • Change HVAC filter after a fire
  • Tape double layers of cheesecloth over air registers.

What NOT to do after a fire

  • Do not attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces or shampoo carpet or upholstery without contacting your SERVPRO Professional.
  • Don't attempt to clean any electrical appliances that may have been close to fire, heat, or water without consulting an authorized repair service.
  • Don't use any canned or packaged food or beverages that may have been stored near the fire, heat, or water.
  • Don't turn on ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet. The wiring may be damaged.

Flood Damage Cleanup in Your Eureka Springs Home

Graphic with title and logo Flooding can severely damage your home, call SERVPRO to thoroughly remediate the damage.

Let SERVPRO Help You with Unexpected Flood Damage

You may not live in an area that is prone to heavy rains, but don’t get too comfortable. Even in Eureka Springs, a flood can happen to you, as everyone is at risk. Changing weather patterns can send surprises to those who thought they were safe, so even if you are on high ground, it is best to be prepared ahead of time and do what you can to prevent damage from flooding.

If flooding has happened in your area, your home in Eureka Springs no longer looks like it used to. Water has intruded inside, covering your floors, furniture, and other belongings. It is a scene that is quite overwhelming, and that is why our staff at SERVPRO is ready to help you at any time. We are professionally trained for flooding situations like this and can help you restore your home and get back to your regular way of life.

Once we arrive, we carefully pre-inspect all aspects of the areas that are damaged. Our job is to start mitigating the loss. We check for any dangerous situations such as falling ceilings, electrical hazards, and deteriorated subfloors. Then we can pump out the standing water with powerful, truck-mounted extractors.

SERVPRO techs use a moisture meter to determine how much damage has penetrated through flooring, carpeting, ceilings, and walls. We move and block furniture as necessary, then extract water from carpets and hard surface flooring. When needed, we detach carpeting and remove water from the floor and pad. We check the back of carpeting for damage like bad seams, delamination, or visible mold. If it is damaged, we try to determine if the damage was preexisting and if the carpet needs to be replaced or if it can be restored.

The back of the carpeting and the flooring is treated with an antimicrobial or deodorizer; then the carpet is laid back on the floor so we can extract water from the surface fibers again before applying an antimicrobial or deodorizer. We also remove any furniture stains before the carpet dries.

Air movers and dehumidifiers are placed to dry the rest of your home. They are positioned for optimal drying, and we check the status of the drying process regularly.

SERVPRO of Benton & Carroll Counties should be your first choice for any residential or commercial restoration needs. Our team of professionals is trained to assess the damage and potential threats, extract and contain the affected area, dry, and restore your property to preloss condition.

Fast Water Removal Reduces Economic Impacts After Flooding Events

flood damage event at a Bella Vista business impacts not only the company involved but also their customers and employees.

Damaged plant equipment is inspected and repaired, and air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers move in to dry the structure. Throughout the process, moisture is measured and monitored, and the drying goals determined by our production managers are eventually reached.
 
The SERVPRO work crews are aware that every moment the business is down community members are losing money. We do all in our power to work fast and get the majority of the building back to normal so the business can get back to regular production as soon as possible. We listen carefully to the business owner and its management team to see if there is a way to open a portion of the commercial building while we continue to work on the flood-damaged areas.

If the scope of the response needed exceeds our configuration, we have relationships with other SERVPROs that can lend technicians and equipment. No job is too big or too small for us, and the quality the customer receives is impeccable. We have a shared goal and that is a fully operational company in as few days or hours as possible.

The Advantages of Hiring SERVPRO after A Flood In Your Benton County Home

3/4/2021 (Permalink)

Graphic with title and logo SERVPRO is prepared to conduct a pack out of your personal and household property when flooding threatens.

Why A Pack Out Is A Good Choice When Flood Damage Affects Bentonville Homes

When seasonal storms bring large amounts of water into your home in the Bentonville area, you might want to arrange for a pack out of your furnishings and personal possessions. Although it can be stressful to think about moving items out of your home as flooding approaches, choosing to transfer the contents of your home to a dry area eases overall water removal and structural drying tasks. Our professionals have both the training and experience to make it work well.

Our innovative inventory process limits the chances that items go missing when flood damage affects items in your Bentonville home. Our technicians are meticulous as we pack and label items, ensuring that when the floodwaters recede, we can return your property room by room. Removing portable articles allow our flood restoration crews to pump and extract water from your property’s structure in a streamlined fashion. Increasing the space and improving the airflow patterns allow structural drying with air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to proceed more quickly.

Insurance companies appreciate the thorough listing of personal property and the extent of the damage inflicted by flood waters. SERVPRO works closely with your insurance company as we evaluate the damage to furniture and household or personal goods away from the main flood recovery site. Pack-outs allow a systematic review of the harm and a matching of damage restoration techniques with the items involved.

When you try to sort through the chaos of flood damage inside your home, disposing of the majority of wet items initially might seem to make sense. The flooding effect can feel overwhelming, especially to homeowners with little or no familiarity with what advanced drying strategies can do. SERVPRO production technicians can clean up and dry items you thought were ruined, making the pack out a money and memory saver.

Specialized flood recovery techniques exist like freeze drying for books and documents. Speedy moisture removal for furnishings occurs when we create smaller drying chambers, concentrating the balance of air movement and dehumidification to return even thoroughly soaked items back to their original appearance, comfort, and function. SERVPRO takes our training and experience as an opportunity to return your property’s structure and contents to pre-damage condition.

SERVPRO of Benton & Carroll Counties should be your first choice for any residential or commercial restoration needs. Our team of professionals is trained to assess the damage and potential threats, extract and contain the affected area, dry, and restore your property to preloss condition. 

SERVPRO of Benton & Carroll Counties is available 24/7 by calling 479-318-6774.
