It's Storm Season in Springdale. Are You Ready For Flooding?

6/27/2019 (Permalink)

Strong storms are a staple in Arkansas. Should your home experience water damage, call SERVPRO of Fayetteville / Springdale.

Seasonal Storms Increase Your Risk of Flood Damage in Springdale 

Weather events in recent months remind Springdale homeowners how vulnerable residential properties can be to high winds and torrential downpours. If roofs and gutter systems become overwhelmed with the force and quantity of rainfall experienced, you might find significant amounts of water collecting in the lower levels of your home or invading a crawl space or slab foundation. Fast action from flood loss experts mitigates the damage and ensures your home remains secure against future storms. 

When one rainstorm follows another flood damage to your Springdale home can stem from a range of threats. The winds and hail that accompany some storms can damage the structure of your home, permitting water to intrude under loosened shingles and flashings. Gutters and downspouts can clog or detach, failing to divert water away from your home’s foundation as intended. The ground near your home becomes saturated, and water seeps into cracks and through porous materials like cinder blocks and concrete into the lowest levels of your house. 

Our crew arrives at your flooded home ready to remove the water and dry out the structures, all necessary equipment and products stocked in our service vehicles. The SERVPRO team has years of experience in flood remediation and a tireless commitment to serving our customers at their time of greatest need. Within moments after our experts assess your flooding scenario and devise a plan, our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Reconstruction Certification (IICRC)-trained technicians get on with the needed tasks. 

If the storm took out your electricity, never fear. SERVPRO uses gas operated pumps for flooding more than two inches deep, and our truck-mounted extractors can employ alternative power generators. We use thermal imaging and sensitive moisture meters to locate any hidden reserves of the flooding as we remove the standing water. Controlled demolition such as flood cuts and holes drilled in mortar joints releases trapped water for extraction. We assess the category of flooding contamination and contain and dispose of the flood water as required by local regulation. 

Once our team is satisfied that evacuation of the bulk of the flood water has completed, we determine drying goals based on moisture levels taken in the affected area and contrasted with levels taken in dry areas of your home. SERVPRO uses these measurements to design a drying perimeter of air movers, heaters, and evaporative and desiccant dehumidifiers. 

Put your trust in SERVPRO of Fayetteville / Springdale when persistent rainfall causes flood damage to your residence. We answer customer calls round the clock, every day of the year at  (479) 419-5544.
