Call SERVPRO When your Roof Leaks Water, to Prevent Further Damage in Rogers

Graphic with title and logo SERVPRO Tip for Homeowners: Prevent Leaks and Repair Your Damaged Roof

Many homeowners will put off making necessary maintenance calls on their property. However, repairing a roof leak needs to be highest on your priority list. If the roof of your home is compromised, there are serious damage possibilities on the inside and outside of your home. There are a variety of reasons why roof leaks develop including wind or storm damage, improper roof installation and lack of maintenance. You may need to replace your roof in the event of extensive damage.

Whatever the cause, even a small roof leak can cause several problems throughout your home. In this case, you need to contact a restoration company like SERVPRO. Constant water intrusion eventually comes down from the point of origin and can cause walls, flooring and insulation to all get wet. Below, find some ways that a roof leak can damage your home.
 
Ceiling and Attic Damage

Initially, a roof leak can damage the attic area and items stored there. Incoming rainwater can damage the ceiling inside your home. Ceiling paint which is affected acquires dark spots, and ceiling plaster can expand and bubble. The water leaking also damages plaster or drywall and paint on walls nearby. It also affects any ceiling-mounted fans and lights.
 
Issues with Interior Mildew and Mold

One of the most serious problems with a leaking roof is mildew and mold growth. Mold can spread within the structure of your home, to the HVAC system and then through the whole house in the vents, invading furniture, carpets, and clothing.
 
Black mold is a common mold species that forms from a constant water intrusion. It can spread to ceiling tiles, wood framing, and floor and wall coverings. It can pose health effects for you and your family, so you need the technicians from SERVPRO to come in right away and clean it up.
 
Fire Hazard

If you have electrical wiring in a ceiling or attic, a leaky roof could post a fire risk from shorted wires. You should turn off your electricity to the area affected and have an electrician check it out.
 
Slip and Fall Hazard

A badly leaking roof can cause a puddle to form on the floor. Although not seemingly a big risk, but with an active family, especially one with children who like to run around, the water needs to be mopped up to prevent any accidents.
 
Wasted Energy and Higher Utility Bills

Another side effect of a faulty roof is higher utility bills. Water intrusion greatly affects the insulation in your attic. The fiberglass or cellulose insulation gets saturated and takes a long time to dry out. If a repair is delayed, consistent water intrusion weakens the insulation fibers, and the matting can degrade the effectiveness of air entrapment. This result illustrates how you can lose cool or hot air from your home, depending on the season, creating larger utility bills.
 
Compromised Structural Integrity

The most apparent danger of a leaking roof is the rafters, wall framing, ceiling joists and exterior trim being damaged. Wood deterioration and weakened, rotted framing creates serious problems that need the assistance of an experienced contractor.
 
As you can see, there are many challenges a roof leak can cause, including plenty of water damage throughout your home.

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.

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.

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.

How to save wet books after Water Damage at your Commercial Property in Rogers

2/3/2021 (Permalink)

Graphic with title and logo Books and other paper documents can be salvaged by freezing them using a strategic approach based on their level of damage.

Using our process to salvage documents by freezing them using a strategic approach once we identify the level of damage to your property.

  • Step 1: Is the water clean?
    • If so, then you’re ready to dry.
    • If it’s not clean, like dirty water or coffee will probably leave the book stained. The best to expect is legible words in this situation, but when a book or your documentation is valuable to you, that's worth saving and restoring!
  • Step 2: Air Drying
    • If it was totally saturated – Don’t separate the pages. Stand upright on paper towels to absorb water as it drains down. If you can, place towels in-between the covers and text sections.
    • If it was partially wet – Spread paper towels throughout the pages of the book. Every 20 or so pages. After an hour, change the towels until all the extra moisture is absorbed.
    • If it was just damp – Stand upright, fan the leaves slightly and let the book air-dry. If there are coated wax paper to isolate each photo and prevents sticking. Freeze immediately after noticing the damage for the best result.
  • Step 3: Remember - Don’t try to separate the pages.
    • Separating the pages will cause tearing. To avoid this, freeze the book immediately.
      • Prevents mold growth
      • If mold is already present – It changes the consistency of mold to make it easier to remove.
      • Gives you time to decide how you want to handle it.
      • Once frozen, you will be able to open the book and separate the pages.
      • Keep the freezer on the lowest setting for the best results.

SERVPRO's Ice Blasting Takes Cleaning after Fire Damage to a Whole New Level in Rogers

2/3/2021 (Permalink)

Graphic with title and logo SERVPRO Mitigates Fire Damage with Ice Blasting Technology in Rogers. We are the leader in fire and water damage mitigation and restoration.

Just a couple of months ago, we got a call from a customer saying that they had a fire in their home. SERVPRO was quick to respond to the job to see how we could help this customer with their fire damage. The customer’s home was damaged pretty badly. The SERVPRO team came in and did the initial work cleaning up materials that were scattered around from the flames and fire department being there. After the demo and before reconstruction is when we would like to marks all over what is left of the standing structure. Our Technicians were able to come in and ice blast the area. This process takes a highly pressurized machine with dry ice to force the charred marks off of the structure. This is a form of cleaning that is very innovative and because of the fact that the dry ice dissipates on its own, leaving no debris leftover. This process saves a lot of time for the customer which is a game changer for our customers after they’ve already had to deal with the fire/water/insulation/dust everywhere after the fire event happened!
