How Our Experts Can Save Your Bentonville Property After A Disaster
Our Integrated Approach Is Why SERVPRO Comes Highly Recommended For Bentonville Disaster Recovery
Professionalism plus a plan for every possibility, all delivered with care and compassion, is why Bentonville customers turn to us for their water, fire, mold, and storm damage challenges. Homeowners confronted with the turmoil of a severe loss need emotional support as they process during the aftermath of a disaster. Our team, management, and work crews commit to providing the highest quality mitigation and remediation services with respect and transparent communication every step of the way.
As it is one of our core services, you can expect our response to water damage in your Bentonville home to be rapid and successful. Our managers and technicians master the water mitigation and remediation industry’s best practices through the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification coursework. We move beyond this theoretical foundation to its practical application during each water recovery project, integrating that experience going forward for the benefit of our valued customers.
State-of-the-art equipment compliments SERVPRO’s highly-qualified crews. We stock our service vehicles with submersible pumps and wanded extractors to speed water removal efforts. Because we frequently respond to water damage emergencies where electricity is temporarily offline, our equipment operates with alternative power sources, including gas motors and onboard generators.
Our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) are skilled in using advanced water and moisture detection technology. We trace the path water took from the initial leak or flood, knowing it migrates into building cavities and absorbs into porous building materials. If we do not find and remove standing water and reduce the moisture content of building materials to normal levels, you risk progressive damage to your home’s structural integrity and the threat of mold growth and damage.
Once water removal completes the focus switches to applied structural drying. Our crew seamlessly puts a drying plan into action, using data gathered during moisture readings. Powerful air movers and heaters roll off our trucks, positioned by our employees for optimal evaporative effect. As water leaves the soaked materials dehumidifiers collect the vapor, condensing or absorbing it for disposal.
A fire damage scenario in Bentonville needs all hands on deck to resolve. Every home fire is unique, and our experienced assessors and Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) acknowledge that fact and proceed accordingly. The trend among our employees is to hold multiple certifications from the IICRC. Multitasking is fundamental to our rapid and reliable mitigation and remediation actions because a fire scene can require a vast number of professional interventions to reach preloss condition.
SERVPRO crews arrive ready for anything, including the water removal that is nearly always needed after a fire. The water in a fire-damaged home is contaminated, and we are qualified to categorize, contain, and dispose of it according to local rules. While the water evacuation is in process, other crew members assemble the tools and products for effective soot removal. Soot varies in its consistency and tendency to smear or remain tightly adhered to surfaces. Our employees match cleaners and methods to rid your home of the residues safely and completely.
To improve air quality and as a first attempt to remove malodors, we use HEPA-filtered air scrubbing technology. We can partition a home during remediation using this approach, allowing you and your family to live in unaffected spaces protected from debris and residue drift while we work. Fire residues are highly toxic, so we take every precaution to shield you and your loved ones from their effects during the fire damage mitigation and remediation.
Mold damage in Bentonville can cause frustration and concern. Many homeowners feel unprepared to manage a mold infestation. We offer assistance in removing active colonies and recommending practices that can help you avoid significant mold problems in the future. No reputable technique exists that results in mold elimination because spores are everywhere in the environment. It is critical to learn how to minimize the risk of regrowth.
SERVPRO follows the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocol when performing mold remediation. Once we determine the extent of the fungal damage, we contain the work area. Heavy-duty plastic sheeting defines the space, and then we typically add a negative pressure air scrubber to seal the perimeter. The air scrubber also filters contaminants and exhausts to the outdoors, keeping unaffected spaces in your home free of moldy debris. We scrape and brush the mold off solid surfaces and can save some porous materials as well by using a soda blasting technique.
After vacuuming and treating the affected areas with an EPA-registered antimicrobial, we bag the moldy materials and disposed of them according to local rules. We work with you to determine the location of the leak or other sources of water that fueled the mold growth initially.
Summer storms can be a mixed bag of wind, fire, and flood damage in Bentonville. The highly charged atmosphere that breeds violent storms means the trajectory of a system can change, catching residents by surprise when a beautiful day transforms into a howling tempest. Exteriors of homes suffer, with roofs ripped off and trees crashing into windows and siding. Vast quantities of rain pour inside. As the thunder rumbles, lightning can strike, knocking out power and setting structures alight.
Given the potential for a complicated recovery after storm damage, it is crucial to involve an experienced and highly-skilled contractor during the aftermath. Responders must be proficient in water and fire damage mitigation and remediation, and vigilant about guarding against collateral mold damage. SERVPRO invests in the qualified workforce and state-of-the-art equipment needed to assess, plan, and implement a detailed and integrated set of tasks, coordinating efforts towards making it “Like it never even happened.”
A pack-out of furniture and belongings often occurs during a storm damage project. We use SERVPRO’s Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS) to track and document the items’ conditions and restoration plans and outcomes. Our team prioritizes collaboration with you and your carrier during every phase of the storm damage remediation. We cannot help you avoid the destruction of a tropical storm or downburst, but we stand with you during recovery and insurance claim submissions.
Disasters are unpredictable and overwhelming for homeowners, but this is why SERVPRO of Benton / Carroll Counties is there to help no matter how severe the damage or complex the recovery. Call (479) 787-7377 24/7. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
