Neighbor’s Sprinkler System Overreaches Bentonville Property Causing Water Problems
SERVPRO Advice and Service in Bentonville Mitigate Water Damage
Sometimes you do everything right but have the misfortune to live near someone who makes a bad decision that affects both your homes. Water damage stemming from a neighboring sprinkler system working on overdrive is unexpected but well within the ability of the trained staff at SERVPRO to help you recover.
Sprinkler systems make it easier for homeowners to keep lawns and gardens green, but water damage to your Bentonville home occurs when your neighbor’s in-ground set up ran all weekend when you were out of town. The water pooled around your slab foundation and ran into your crawl spaces. Some of the water absorbed into the ground, but you fear pockets of moisture are now under your living area.
Waste no time inviting SERVPRO to inspect the problem. The longer water remains under your home, the more likely it is that mold colonizes, impacting your air quality and threatening your structure with rot. We have the equipment and the know-how to get under your home to remove standing water and to employ strategies to dry out the more inaccessible areas. Industrial strength air movers help lower the moisture content of the slab and the supports under your subfloor. If indicated by our experience with similar issues in the past, we add dehumidifiers and carefully monitored heaters to reduce the moisture. We can offer an encapsulation service by setting up a barrier to mitigate moisture migration from the crawl space soil.
Our crew takes the time to evaluate the moisture barriers you may, or may not, have in place between the foundation and your structure. Replacing or improving this vital construction protection avoids issues in the future. We dutifully inspect for any damage to the interior of your home and help with the restoration of floor or walls if they wicked water from the pooling beneath your house.
SERVPRO can communicate with your insurance company and the representatives from your neighbor's insurer, help with your claim's paperwork, and reduce out of pocket expenses. Many insurance companies favor using our services, so you rest assured that our recommendations and reputation are taken very seriously in the industry. This water removal and restoration is not a situation you should try to abate on your own.
Neighbors make mistakes, but you can make the right decision and call SERVPRO of Benton / Carroll Counties when their sprinklers threaten to ruin your home. Our office takes basic information at (479) 787-7377 and sends an experienced team to your aid within hours.
