Preventing Flood Damage in Johnson, AR

Why SERVPRO Preventing Flood Damage in Johnson, AR Broken or clogged gutters can let water damage the foundation of your home. Contact SERVPRO to repair and for other services to prevent flooding.

SERVPRO Helps Homeowners Prohibit Water From Entering Their Homes During Storms

The town of Johnson is in one of the most beautiful places in Arkansas. Our location on the Springfield Plateau, however, does have us at risk for flooding from rain and snow coming off the mountains. It is a risk we accept, but that does not mean we do not plan for it. 
 
Preventing flood damage in Johnson means blocking massive floodwaters and sealing areas off from seepage which can lead to more significant problems in the future. After decades in the restoration business, SERVPRO can help any homeowner prepare for the next storm now. Keeping water away is the simplest method to protect your home. 
 
We cannot stop the rain, but we can inspect the rain gutters and drains on your roof and exterior walls. Our technicians repair or replace gutters that have pulled away from the roof, leaving a gap for water to run through. Drainpipes that have broken away from the channels cause the same type of damage, just a foot or two away. In a harsh downpour, hundreds of gallons of water can flow down the side of a home and eat away at both the landscaping and the foundation of a house or apartment building. 
 
To protect the foundation walls, we recommend sealing off outer walls and basements. For the exterior, our crew digs out, exposes, and cleans the outside walls. To prevent seepage and leaks, we cover them with a thick coating of rubber cement. It waterproofs the concrete and bricks from the worst storms and does not crack unless the house moves away from the foundation itself. 
 
For the interior, we inspect the basement for cracks and use a hydraulic cement compound to seal them. SERVPRO technicians then apply a waterproof, second layer consisting of masonry cement. The two together form an excellent barrier that stops even the smallest amount of seepage into a home. 
 
While no method is perfect, repairing your drain system and sealing off the basement are two significant steps in the right direction. For more information about how SERVPRO of Fayetteville / Springdale can help you protect your home from floods, call us today at (479) 419-5544.

Damp Laundry can Spread Mold Damage in Your Fayetteville Home

3/20/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Damp Laundry can Spread Mold Damage in Your Fayetteville Home Mold grows when conditions of moisture and heat in your laundry room or bathroom are right. Contact SERVPRO when you see or smell mold.

SERVPRO can Help Stop the Spread of Mold on Your Property

Dirty clothing landing in the hamper is what you expect your children to do, but when that laundry contains wet or damp items, microbes can proliferate inside the dark confines of the hamper. If your hamper rests against a wall in your Fayetteville home, microbes can easily find their way to the wall's surface and spread even more. Using a clothesline can help kill off any microbes infesting your clothing because sunlight is a natural killer of most microorganisms. 
 
To further protect your home from mold damage in Fayetteville, it is important to ensure that all line-dried clothing is completely dry before bringing any of it inside. Mildew does not care if damp clothing is clean or soiled – either is suitable and promotes microbial growth. Hanging shirts and slacks while still damp is known as an excellent way to remove slight wrinkling without the use of an iron. However, you should do this in an open area. Closed-off locations such as closets, bathrooms, and the area between an open door and the adjacent wall can slow evaporation and allow mildew spots to form on the garment. 
 
Setting aside any items that feel damp when folding clothing before placing it in drawers, and either re-hanging these damp articles or placing them for a short period in the dryer can keep mold from forming. Ironing slightly damp clothing until dry can also help attain an environment that contains fewer mold spores. Additionally, allowing laundry hampers to air out on a sunny day while open can kill mold and prevent strong odors from developing. 
 
Clothing can spread mold easily through your home. It is easier to reduce the microbial population found on clothing than it is to perform mold remediation after mold damage takes hold of your home. Once mold begins to thrive, you need a company like SERVPRO to carry out the steps involved in remediation. Certified in Applied Microbial Remediation (AMRT), our technicians can restore your home's interior to a healthy environment. 
 
SERVPRO of Fayetteville / Springdale wants to help you maintain a home free of abnormal levels of mold. From measuring devices that detect microbial activity levels to air scrubbers that remove pollutants and irritants in addition to mold particles and spores in the air, we have everything needed to contain and clean the area affected by mold damage. Whenever you find mold growth in your home, call us at (479) 419-5544. We answer our phones 24/7, every day of the year.

Fast Extraction Techniques for Fayetteville Thrift Shop

Every day that your Fayetteville thrift shop is open, you have a steady flow of foot traffic into your business. People look to your second-hand store to provide quality bargains and deals on the items they are looking for, but more importantly, expect you to be open. When water loss incidents occur in the store, which can happen as readily as a sprinkler head breaking off in the ceiling, you need a fast response from qualified professionals to get your doors back open quickly.

From the time that the water loss incident begins in your Fayetteville store, whether it is a broken pipe or a malfunctioning sprinkler system, you need to react quickly to get professional water removal services on the way. Our SERVPRO team is available 24 hours a day with a fast response to emergencies that threaten your commercial property with effective extraction and drying equipment.

When our team arrives at your business, we can establish the full scope of the damage and the repairs needed to keep the situation from getting worse. We do offer plumbing repair through our licensed general contractors, ensuring that once the pooling water gets extracted and the affected areas dried, that you are no longer at risk for further water damage from the same compromised pipe.

Extraction is important to begin right away when our SERVPRO team arrives at your damaged thrift shop. We can bring in equipment like wet-vacs with extraction wands and portable sump pumps where they can get used. Mopping up the water and sopping up the excess is also an important step for excess water that does not require the full extraction measures. Drying steps to follow can help to protect linoleum or carpeting flooring from becoming irreparably damaged.

Water removal in a thrift shop challenges even our skilled technicians. We try to work fast, move around inventory and displays to preserve your investment.

When people count on your store being open, make sure that a water loss incident in your building does not keep your doors closed longer than necessary. You can reach our SERVPRO of Fayetteville / Springdale rapid response team 24/7 by calling (479) 419-5544.

Advanced Solutions That Help Improve Clean Up After Fire Damage in Springdale

Fire damages properties in different ways including depositing soot and other residues leaving surfaces blackened. The level of difficulty in removing such residues can be easy or difficult depending what the fire burned, and how intense blaze was, among other factors. The surface affected can also determine the difficulty level. For example, cleaning residues from the ceiling is more difficult than cleaning walls. Professional restoration companies use advanced solutions to improve results.

After fire damage in Springdale, residues soil many household items including electronics and fine jewelry. Residues such as soot are acidic so they can corrode the affected items if left in place for long. Cleaning up such valuable materials is tricky because you can damage them in the process. Our SERVPRO technicians utilize specialized equipment such as ultrasonic cleaners to clean non-porous valuables. An ultrasonic restoration cleaner has a pre-soak chamber, ultrasonic chamber, a rinse section, and a drying chamber guaranteeing proper cleaning.

When cleaning some sections of the house like the ceiling, you might face access challenges because of the elevation. Residues falling from the ceiling can also soil other areas such as walls and floors already cleaned. It is possible to overcome such problems with better planning and a degree of innovation. Our SERVPRO technicians organize the process so that cleaning starts in higher areas. We also add extension poles to spotting pad holders to ease access and the angle of attack when cleaning up ceilings.

Choosing a cleanup method should be done with care since it is possible to harm the surface physically in the process of removing soils. For example, surfaces covered in acoustic tiles can lose their sound deadening properties during cleanup. SERVPRO has developed a unique procedure for cleaning acoustical ceilings known as Peroxide Active Ceiling Cleaning. It is a water-based solution that utilizes stabilized hydrogen peroxide sprayed at 40-60 psi on the affected surface. The method works perfectly on blown ceilings that might deteriorate or dissolve if wet cleaning is utilized.

Advanced cleaning solutions help solve many seemingly tricky problems. Call SERVPRO of Fayetteville / Springdale to assist you using such an approach. You can reach our crew at (479) 419-5544 any time.

When Flood Waters Arise, SERVPRO Will Respond With A Lending Hand

Storm Damage When Flood Waters Arise, SERVPRO Will Respond With A Lending Hand Our team is here to take care of your Fayetteville home and restore the flood damage "Like it never even happened."

Debris Removal After a Flood in Your Fayetteville Home

Flooding can cause many problems for your Fayetteville home, the most pressing of which is the high volume of water that you now have through the penetration points. As challenging as this might seem to overcome, the right professional restoration team with the appropriate equipment can begin steps to return your home to its original condition quickly with a fast response to the emergency on your end. As pressing as water removal might be in situations like this, it is not the only pressing need that your property has.

While flood damages can affect your Fayetteville home in different ways, overcoming these effects is not something that the average homeowner has the time, resources, or equipment to do on their own. Your insurance provider can guide you to the information about what your policy covers regarding recovery after a natural disaster like this, but at the bare minimum, many of them offer their policyholders debris removal coverage. Our SERVPRO professionals can do this efficiently, saving you money and time. These steps also help to ensure that later reconstruction and remodeling efforts can occur quickly.

Debris removal often gets thought of as literal objects and scrap brought in with the rising waters, but the process is much more comprehensive than that. Our approach offers not just cleaning and extraction of floodwaters but also continues into controlled demolition of affected materials as well. With structural elements exposed, we can disinfect and clean studs, beams, and framework that can get preserved to prevent bacterial growth and bio-hazardous conditions from occurring.

It is not advisable for you to attempt debris removal and water extraction on your own following a flood because there is always a high risk of contamination. Our SERVPRO professionals have safety equipment and efficient machines designed to extract water quickly and allow our team to get to work on cleanup and demolition efficiently and cost-effectively.

Flooding can present some hurdles to overcome but choosing professionals like our SERVPRO of Fayetteville / Springdale team can make it “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call today at (479) 419-5544.

Mold Damage Remediation In Fayetteville

2/7/2019 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Mold Damage Remediation In Fayetteville Mold can grow fast and spread throughout your home call SERVPRO as soon as you spot mold to prevent significant damage to your home.

How Mold Affects Your Fayetteville House 

Understanding the ways that your Fayetteville home can become affected by various disasters can help you to prepare for the possible damages that could result. The better equipped you are with the information, the less likely you are to allow significant threats like mold growth to persist in your house and affect structural elements and the family living there. Mold can work quickly to spread throughout the property, and it begins with the right conditions that facilitate colonization. 

While many Fayetteville homeowners don't see mold damage as a huge concern, there is a cause for concern when you discover colonization in your house. With both damaging effects to the structure and integrity of the property, as well as the possibility of health effects for those within the house that get exposed to an active colony, reacting quickly is essential to protect what matters most. Our SERVPRO professionals have unique and extensive training in mold damage remediation to offer effective solutions for the removal of active colonies and restoration of the damage these organisms have caused. 

Moist and damp areas of your property provide the right conditions for naturally occurring mold spores to stick to surfaces, seat into them and begin growing. The trouble with avoiding these conditions is that many homeowners do not know that they exist until the mold has already formed and started to spread through neighboring surfaces and areas. 

Mold feeds on organic material, and that changes the composition of the hosting surface to become irreparably damaged eventually. Drywall is a common host material for mold colonies, as many of the walls in modern home construction use this construction element. It is also difficult for even our highly-trained SERVPRO team to restore after the mold has formed, which often leads to a need for demolition and later replacement. 

As you can see, reacting quickly at the first sign of mold can help to limit its spread and effect on your home. Give our SERVPRO of Fayetteville / Springdale remediation specialists a call anytime that you need us at (479) 419-5544.

Don't Let Water Cause Significant Damage To Your Hardwood Floors In Fayetteville

1/24/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Don't Let Water Cause Significant Damage To Your Hardwood Floors In Fayetteville Our team can understand the gravity of the situation when flooring materials begin to absorb water damage that has occurred on your property.

Water Cleanup From Hardwood Floors In Fayetteville Homes

Many Fayetteville homes feature hardwood flooring throughout many of the open areas and living spaces. While this has become a trending feature in modern construction, it was also a staple for construction in houses that have antique appeal. Water loss incidents can occur with little warning, and with hardwood floors, and even laminate flooring that simulates hardwood, water can penetrate joints quickly to pose a significant threat to this construction material.

While many homeowners might not see water cleanup in Fayetteville as a cause to reach out to professional restoration technicians like ours, you might consider elements like your hardwood flooring. As these materials get exposed to moisture and water, absorption begins almost immediately. Surface water might still be accessible to conventional drying approaches, but what has seeped into the hardwood requires advanced equipment and fast response time from trained professionals.

Our SERVPRO team can understand the gravity of the situation when flooring materials begin to absorb water damage that has occurred on your property. Our professionals are available 24/7 to provide a fast and reliable response to any customer that needs assistance or water cleanup at any time. Our Green Fleet arrives at the address with highly-trained, certified technicians from our team and an assortment of our industry-leading equipment to begin drying out damaged elements immediately.

If we can get to a water damage situation fast enough, we can often avoid unnecessary demolition and tear out. Over just a couple of days, moisture trapped in the seams and joints of wood flooring can swell and distort the planks, causing them to sit irregularly and can even cause them to structurally fail depending on the severity of the underlying dampness.

Our SERVPRO professionals have thermal imagery cameras to identify moisture pockets and advanced equipment like large drying mats to slowly draw moisture out of hardwood flooring without damaging the material.

Water damage situations can happen with no warning, but how you respond to them is critical to preserving investments like genuine hardwood flooring. Give our SERVPRO of Fayetteville / Springdale a call anytime that you want to clean and dry up a water mess fast. You can reach us anytime at (479) 419-5544.

Restore Your Fayetteville Home After Water Damage

Recovering Your Fayetteville Home After a Water Loss Incident

Water loss incidents can cause significant structural concerns for your Fayetteville home, and restoring the damage that it can cause often requires more precise equipment and expertise than the average homeowner can provide. Cleaning up excess water quickly is critical to ensuring that the situation does not perpetually get worse, and our certified professionals can help you.

While water removal might only be a step of recovering from a water loss incident in your Fayetteville home, having this step done quickly and correctly is important to protect the rest of your home that remains at risk from the spreading damage. Our SERVPRO professionals have containment strategies for the water damage that begins with effective extraction and continue into efficient and time-saving drying efforts.

Extraction involves multiple pieces of equipment that arrive with our SERVPRO Green Fleet. For severe situations, we have a truck-mounted extractor that can remove water at a rate of 300 psi to rapidly remove excess to prepare your home for focused drying efforts. Spot extractions can get handled with portable sump pumps and extraction wands. Effective extraction works to save our customers money and helps the technicians we dispatch to the address to recover more of the property without unnecessary tear out and demolition.

We take the time to mark overly damaged materials affected by the pooling water to make flood cuts. The commonly removed material in these situations is the drywall, as the composition of this structural element can become compromised quickly with exposure to water. We use controlled demolition techniques to remove only the damaged portions to make replacement take less time and ultimately cost less to the customer to complete.

Finding the best team to help you through water loss incidents and the critical extraction and drying to come is not difficult. Our SERVPRO of Fayetteville / Springdale rapid response team is available 24/7 to handle any effect that water damage has on your property. We have the tools and experience to restore your home entirely and make it “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call at (479) 419-5544.
