Proven Flood Damage Restoration Services for Fayetteville Residents

Flooding can happen quickly. Contact SERVPRO for drying out and remediation efforts that happen right after you call.

SERVPRO Technicians Dry Your Using the Proper Equipment

Now and again we experience the effects of flood damage. Floods can leave behind massive losses worth thousands of dollars. No matter how well we are prepared to face such disasters, there are always incidents that happen and you can’t always plan for when a storm might hit. Springdale residents need to work with IICRC certified restoration service providers like SERVPRO when dealing with the aftermath of flooding to ensure you get a timely response and accurate drying procedures.

Using the right equipment makes a big difference when restoring your Fayetteville property after a flood damage disaster. That is the fact that our SERVPRO team understands and in most cases, we analyze each situation differently to determine the most appropriate tools and technology to use when working on your property. Drying as a process requires one to know humidity, temperature, and the various air properties - something that our technicians understand very well.

Timely evaporation of the moisture in your property is vital during the restoration. It all starts by putting in place appropriate measures to reduce the drying time and the use of extractors, air movers and dehumidifiers works towards achieving that. Air movers facilitate airflow and increase the speed of evaporation. As the moisture evaporates from surfaces, it leads to the formation of moist air. That means we have to remove the extra moisture from the air and we do that by using dehumidifiers.

The two main types of dehumidifiers that our SERVPRO technicians use are desiccant dehumidifiers and refrigerant dehumidifiers. Desiccant dehumidifiers use chemicals to absorb the moisture, while the working of refrigerant dehumidifiers has a lot of similarity to how air conditioners work. Deodorization then follows to neutralize the smells.


The goal of SERVPRO of Fayetteville / Springdale is to restore your contents to their preloss condition no matter the sight of the disaster. We use advanced technology to damaged items that wouldn’t be salvageable otherwise.

SERVPRO of Fayetteville/Springdale 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 Fayetteville/Springdale is available 24/7 by calling 479-318-6774.

The Benefits of A Full-House Assessment After A Fire In Your Springdale Home

3/4/2021 (Permalink)

Call us at 479-419-5544 to arrange an evaluation of your fire damage as soon as possible after the firefighters leave.

Why a Full-House Assessment Is Crucial For Fire Damage Remediation In Springdale

When planning mitigation and remediation efforts after a household fire in Springdale, it is vital that we inspect all spaces in your house for residues. As the blaze consumes items in its path, soot results because of incomplete combustion of the materials, transforming the remnants into tiny carbonized particles. The bits can remain airborne as smoke, and when deposited are called soot. As smoke moves on air currents, it often migrates far from the source of the fire.

Fire damage residues in Springdale are corrosive to building materials and contents and might be toxic when touched or breathed in by the occupants of a building. If your home has an HVAC system that was in operation during the fire, smoke can enter it and then move through the ductwork to spaces far from the ignition site. Residues can coat the interior of the ducts, requiring cleaning and even sealing.

Homeowners might notice that the walls and other surfaces near the fire site are relatively free of deposited soot. This does not mean that the fire created minimal smoke. It illustrates that the residues in smoke do not adhere to surfaces that were hotter than the temperature of the fire. SERVPRO technicians know that smoke moves away from superheated spaces and deposits as soot on cooler surfaces further away from the fire.

No matter how far the soot travels from the ignition site, it continues to have the potential to damage surfaces and items to which it clings. Protein-based soot, common after food and grease fires, can be deceptive when it adheres to a wall or other surface many rooms or even levels away from the original fire. It appears as a very thin, almost invisible film, but it still packs a destructive punch. Walls discolor, metal and glass etch, and the odor is strong and unpleasant. Our SERVPRO team tracks all soot down, uses effective industry best practices to remove it, and follows a multi-step deodorization protocol to eliminate the stench.

SERVPRO of Fayetteville/Springdale 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.

Water damage in your business can be detrimental and overwhelming. Contact SERVPRO today for help.

Useful Steps When Restoring Commercial Water Damage in Fayetteville Realtor Office

When you deal with real estate, clients expect you to be organized, which can mean different things to different people. However, being on time when you schedule meetings and maintaining proper records of any transactions are among the bare minimums. A water leak can ruin your established routine of operations or worse, damage documents and electronics holding vital information for your business operations. You need SERVPRO.

Although you might fail to prevent the main event that causes commercial water damage in Fayetteville, you can prevent secondary ones that amplify the effect it has on your business. Actions that prevent water from sitting too long in the affected areas help minimize the level of damage caused. Our SERVPRO technicians use different types of water extractors, including the high capacity truck-mounted variety, which expedite the removal process.

In your real estate office, you probably have several paper files and other documents making it a high-risk area for unwanted water intrusion. Even minimal exposure to water or the presence of higher than usual levels of humidity in the air can lead to smudges and other issues that would render the documents useless. Water intrusion can also interfere, even if you run a paperless operation, by damaging your electronic equipment such as computers and printers. Our SERVPRO technicians can help take action. We also help remove electronics from the loss site and dry them before a professional can perform a thorough inspection.

Most water leaks in office environments might involve clean water because the most likely sources are burst plumbing lines or accidentally tripped sprinklers. However, such incidents still leave the office soiled because water spreads debris. It might also dissolve dyes in fabrics such as curtains or upholstery items. Our SERVPRO technicians do a thorough cleaning of the entire loss site removing any traces of soiling "Like it never even happened."

SERVPRO of Fayetteville/Springdale 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.

Water Damage and Flood Restoration in Fayetteville

Water Can Damage Homes in Fayetteville, Keep It Out with SERVPRO'S Expertise

Extraction Is the Key in Mitigating Water Damage and SERVPRO sets the Standard

Floods happen when there is too much water on the ground that either cannot drain off or be absorbed into the soil. Rain, melting snow, a broken water main, and many other causes exist. Floods are almost impossible to control, and efforts often fail. Flood damage can be extremely expensive to clean up and remove, and the costs are not only related to structures damaged by flood water.

Fayetteville is not immune to water damage, and flooding can cause health risks to develop in your once safe and secure home. SERVPRO is ready to help you in this type of emergency situation, and many other types as well. We may not be able to control the weather, but we have the equipment required to rid your home of flood damage quickly so your family can return home with less time spent in emergency housing. We know dealing with flood damage can be a very stressful time for you and your family, and we also know that you'll want to return to a home that is not only clean-looking but also sanitary.

We will use moisture meters to find areas that seem undamaged but that have absorbed moisture from not only the air but also by wicking into otherwise untouched areas that were under water. Water from flooding harbors many living but tiny microorganisms. When these can travel with the absorbed water, the contamination spreads. Drying these areas out will kill many microorganisms. Our SERVPRO technicians will apply antifungal and antimicrobial agents to ensure that a sanitary state is restored to your property.

To dry an area after flood damage has occurred, we place heaters and fans in specific areas, and in very specific positions. These should not be moved until the area has been returned to acceptable moisture-content levels. Air scrubbers will also be used if mold has been discovered, or if the flood water was noxious. The groundwater is typically a category 3 type of water, also called Black Water that contains many varying kinds of contaminants.

The cleaning of furniture and other household items is another way we will prepare your home for your family's return. Furniture legs and other wooden sections that are visible must be cleaned and dried out to prevent cracking and peeling of finishes. The interior frames must also be dried out, with upholstered areas also being cleaned inside first. This reduces odors in the future, in addition to the reduction of the risk of mold. If the soft surfaces were heavily exposed to contaminated water, then we will dispose of them, deeming them non-salvageable.

We're ready to take your call to clean up any type of flood damage you might have in Fayetteville.

SERVPRO of Fayetteville/Springdale 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.

4 Ways to Prevent Mold in Your Vacant Fayetteville Rental Property

11/25/2020 (Permalink)

During warmer months, mold prevention becomes more difficult because hot air is perfect conditions for mold.

During warmer months, mold prevention becomes more difficult because hot air is perfect conditions for mold.

Your rental property is likely going to be vacant for a period of time at some point. Sometimes a property will remain vacant for weeks or even months, and an empty property is at risk for developing mold growth. In general, this fungus is relatively harmless unless it grows indoors, where it creates an unpleasant environment and in the worst case, can cause health effects. Follow these mold prevention tips now so you don’t end up paying more for a mitigation specialist in Fayetteville, AR to perform a cleanup later.

1. Turn off the water and drain the lines.

If you expect a property to be vacant for any length of time, turn off your water using the main shut-off valve and open all the faucets to allow water to drain out of the plumbing lines. Especially in the winter months when pipes can freeze and burst, turning off the water eliminates the possibility of plumbing leaks that can cause water damage. Preventing moisture from collecting anywhere is the number one key to mold prevention.

2. Do repairs first.

Before you close the property, have your contractor check for roof and outer wall leaks, clean the gutters and make sure your sump pump is in good condition. Minor repairs can turn into expensive problems later if rainwater is leaking into your building, creating the moist conditions that mold loves.

3. Leave the heat on low.

You may want to save money by shutting off utilities while the building is vacant. However, the money you may save is minimal in comparison to the cost of paying a mold mitigation specialist in Fayetteville, AR to restore your property. During cool weather, keeping the heat on low keeps the house from becoming too damp and encouraging mold spores to settle and grow.

4. Or leave the A/C running.

During summer months, mold prevention becomes more difficult because hot, humid weather creates the perfect conditions for mold. However, keeping the air conditioner running pulls moisture from the air, keeping your property’s environment cool and dry. When new tenants arrive, there won’t be any musty odors or mold problems to contend with.

SERVPRO of Fayetteville/Springdale 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.

Spring in Springdale: Twelve Things You Can Do to Prepare for Spring

3/11/2020 (Permalink)

There are 12 simple things you can do to prepare your home for the upcoming season!
  1. Clean your rain gutters. 
    Wind, animals, and gravity bring sticks, leaves, and other items into your rain gutters, and chances are yours have accumulated their share of debris over the winter. That's bad news for your Springdale home: When downspouts are clogged, rainwater can spill out of your gutters and around the perimeter of your house, putting it at risk for leaks and flooding. Get ready for spring showers by removing the mess from your gutters to ensure that the water will flow freely.
  2. Change filters.
    To maintain optimal air quality in your home, it’s a good idea to replace your HVAC system's air filter seasonally as well as the filter in your kitchen range hood. Consider changing the filters in your water purification system, too. Depending on your water, you might not need to change these as often as your HVAC filters, but it's not a bad idea to check them now. Welcome spring in Springdale with new filters all around to keep your home clean and fresh, and your appliances in good working order.
  3. Check vents.
    As snow melts away from your home’s foundation, it’s a good time to check any vents along the foundation or in the attic. Look for missing or damaged screens, debris, signs of insect or rodent infestation, or other issues, and correct them before they have a chance to become bigger problems later in the season.
  4. Service the Lawn Mower.
    Get your lawn mower ready for the season with a tune-up. If you didn’t do it in the fall, now’s the time to drain and replace oil, sharpen the blades, remove caked-on grass and mud, and lubricate moving parts.
  5. Prep the gas grill.
    After a long winter spent cooped up indoors, you're probably eager for a sunny day. Get your outdoor cooking station ready for spring by scraping away any rust spots that developed over the winter, cleaning the grill inside and out, and checking the fuel tank hose for damage.
  6. Clean Backyard Furniture
    As the weather warms up, outdoor entertaining may be just around the corner. Prepare for warmer days ahead by thoroughly hosing down all backyard furniture—chairs, tables, and lounge chairs—wiping away cobwebs, and bringing outdoor chair cushions out of winter storage.
  7. Pamper the Lawn
    Once the danger of frost has passed and your grass starts to come out of winter dormancy, it’s time to jump-start your spring lawn-care routine. Address winter damage to your turf by seeding bare patches. Then get a head start on weed prevention by manually removing weeds before they have a chance to multiply. 
  8. Groom Shrubs and Trees
    Winter storms can be hard on your landscaping, resulting in broken tree limbs, ragged shrubs, and a garden full of organic debris. Get your yard ready for spring by removing broken or damaged branches, pruning summer-blooming trees and shrubs like butterfly bush and crepe myrtle, and raking up fallen leaves.
  9. Check the Roof
    Take advantage of the sun’s return to check your roof for cracked or missing shingles or tiles, and examine flashing around vents and the chimney for damage. While you’re at it, have the chimney cleaned and inspected by a professional.
  10. Plant Bulbs
    Spring is the ideal time to plant summer-blooming flowers. Go ahead and get them into the ground as soon as the danger of frost has passed.
  11. Clean Windows
    Winter storms and rain can leave your windows streaked and dirty. Let more sun into the house by cleaning windows, both inside and out. 
  12.  Test Alarms
    Let the change of season be your reminder to test all smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors for proper functioning. Change batteries if necessary. Alarms can malfunction as they age, so if yours are older than seven years, consider replacing them.

Cooking Safety is one of the top causes for Fires in Northwest Arkansas

3/11/2020 (Permalink)

Be Safe in the Kitchen

One of the most frequent causes of household fire and smoke damage is cooking. Because of this, it is important to practice safe cooking behaviors whenever you are in the kitchen no matter how large or for what purpose the meal you are preparing.

  • Protect Children from Scalds and Burns. Young children are at high risk of being burned by hot food and liquids. Keep children away from cooking areas by enforcing a "kid-free zone" of 3 feet around the stove.
  • Watch What You’re Cooking. The leading cause of fires in the kitchen is unattended cooking. Stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling, or cooking food on the stove top or broiling food.
  • Choose the Right Equipment and Use It Properly. Follow manufacturers' instructions when using cooking equipment. Remember to plug microwave ovens and other cooking appliances directly into an outlet. Never use an extension cord for a cooking appliance, as it can overload the circuit and cause a fire. Cook only with equipment designed and intended for cooking, and heat your home only with equipment designed and intended for heating.
  • Avoid Using Deep Fat Turkey Fryers. The use of a deep fat turkey fryer can be very dangerous. If you do decide to use one, use it at a safe distance from buildings and other items that can catch fire. Never use a turkey fryer in a garage or on a wooden deck. Watch the fryer carefully, as the oil will continue to heat until it catches fire. To avoid oil spillover, don’t overfill the fryer. Oil-less turkey fryers are available. For more information, visit the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s website.
  • Keep Things That Can Catch Fire and Heat Sources Apart. Keep anything that can catch fire - potholders, oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper or plastic bags, food packaging, towels, or curtains - away from your stovetop. Keep the stovetop, burners, and oven clean. Wear short, close-fitting or tightly rolled sleeves when cooking.
  • Prevent Scalds and Burns. To prevent spills due to overturned appliances containing hot food or liquids, use the back burner when possible, and/or turn pot handles away from the stove's edge. Use oven mitts or potholders when moving hot food from ovens, microwave ovens, or stovetops.                                                              

SERVPRO of Fayetteville/Springdale 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.

Prepare & Protect your Fayetteville home from flooding by calling SERVPRO

12/3/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO wants you to know that even if you live in a flood-prone area, you can (and should) still prepare your home for flood prevention.
  1. Raise it up: In certain cases, most commonly beaches and lakes, when your building your home you can put them on stilts to keep rising water levels out. Even an inch of water can do damage to your home, so elevating the flood level like this will protect your home. The best time to do this is before you build your home.
  2. Sump Pumps: If your home is flooding regularly, it may be time to install a sump pump. This allows for the water to escape by releasing it outside your home, away from flood plains. The cost for this can range from hundreds to a couple thousand dollars depending on the pump and potential installation costs.
  3. Dry Flood-Proofing: This is when you apply sealants onto your walls/windows so that water cannot enter your home through cracks in the walls, or cracks in between the wall and the window. These items will set you back a couple hundred dollars, but could save you thousands in the long run.
  4. Raise outlets: All outlets should be about a foot above flood level. Doing this will prevent electrical damage in the event of a flood.
  5. Check Valves: By using Check valves, you can seal off your home from the flood pressure caused by rising waters. These are inexpensive and will ensure that you can stop incoming water.
  6. Regrading your lawn: If your property sits where the lawn is tilting toward the house, you are in danger of flood water rising around you home. To prevent this, you need to regrade the surface so that you’re leveling out the incline of your yard and the water is going to an appropriate place. To do this you just need heavy soil with a clay content and sand.
  7. Protect your siding: Mulch can make the siding on your home rot. If you’ll keep a space between the siding and the mulch, you will allow the home to completely dry after a storm, and won’t cause the structure to rot.
  8. Gutter Run-off: Water will pool up at the corners of your property if you don’t let the water be drained elsewhere. By directing this water into a gutter, you won’t see it again and it’ll stay away from your home.
  9. Raise appliances- Appliances like water heaters, generators, washing and drying machines and air conditioning units should always be up off of the floor so that if water were to come in, they will be unharmed.

SERVPRO of Fayetteville/Springdale 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 safely use a fire extinguisher

11/12/2019 (Permalink)

Be safe and learn the pass method so that you can handle a potential fire situation.

Your commercial building must be equipped with enough fire extinguishers that anyone who needs to do so can reach one quickly in an emergency. It actually doesn't benefit your business at all to have a fire extinguisher nearby if your employees don't know how to use it properly. Every person in your building needs to understand the four basic steps of the P.A.S.S. method. We recommend to use a tag on your fire extinguisher to indicate this method as a reminder to someone who is urgently needing to operate it.

  1. Pull

Every canister is equipped with a safety feature that keeps it from releasing its contents spontaneously. There is a seal and a pin that holds it in place. Before you can use the extinguisher, you have to pull the pin out and break the seal.

  1. Aim

You may notice that your extinguisher comes equipped with a hose. If you aim the hose at the top of the flames, however, you won't get the coverage you need. To prevent extensive fire damage that requires professional restoration services, you have to aim the hose at the base of the fire.

  1. Squeeze

The fire extinguisher has a handle that allows you to release the contents of the canister. Squeeze the handle so that the extinguishing agent comes out the end of the hose, allowing you to direct it at the base of the fire where it's aimed.

  1. Sweep

If you have a small kitchen fire in your break room, you can probably put it out with the contents of the extinguisher. To do so, you need to make sure the entire base of the fire is covered in the agent that is released. Make a sweeping motion back and forth until the fire goes out or you run out of agent.
If the contents of a fire extinguisher do not put the fire out, don't grab another extinguisher. Call the fire department so that the professionals can take over. In many cases, however, using an extinguisher correctly will put out the fire and prevent a larger problem.

SERVPRO of Fayetteville/Springdale 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.

Fayetteville Property Loss from Fire, Wind, Storm, Water, and Mold? Don't Despair--Call SERVPRO for Restoration Services

7/22/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO Proudly Supports Our Far Away and Local Communities in Fayetteville with Premier Restoration Services

Why SERVPRO? We Strive to Minimize Interruption to Your Fayetteville Life

With a keen understanding of the challenges our Fayetteville customers face after water, fire, mold, or storm damage, our team is committed to turning trauma and chaos around quickly and compassionately. The ability to provide wrap-around mitigation, remediation, and rebuilding services minimizes the stress for our customers. You can engage just one highly-qualified contractor to take your home from devastated to “Like it never even happened” using our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-trained managers and technicians.

Water Damage
Regardless of the source, water damage in Fayetteville brings your day to day household agenda to a halt. Waiting even a day or two before starting mitigation and remediation efforts exposes the structural components inside your dwelling to progressively more severe damage. Postponing a professional assessment and followup recovery work also increases the risk of mold growth and damage, causing even more damage to the many organic surfaces in your house.

One call delivers an experienced and caring crew of SERVPRO IICRC-certified managers and technicians to your door. Our employees can handle any residential water damage scenario.  From finding the water main shut off to opening the door for you and your family when you return to a fully remediated and rehabbed home, we have you covered. Our service vehicles carry all the equipment needed to commence and complete a water mitigation and remediation job. As our project manager and estimator assess the damage, they create a project plan. Then our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) are ready to start water removal tasks without further delay.

Throughout the project, we measure moisture levels and use thermal imaging to find any pockets of migrated water. If we must use controlled demolition strategies such as flood cuts in drywall or weep holes in ceilings, our reconstruction team (Contractor Licenses: General: 0319880514) notes the need for rebuilding and accomplishes that task in turn. The initial moisture data forms the baseline for drying goals we meet with a configuration of air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers.

Fire Damage
The aftermath of fire damage in Fayetteville is almost too much for a homeowner to process. It is nearly impossible for someone unused to the destruction a blaze can inflict to know where to start the cleanup. Fire residues are also highly toxic, dangerous to handle without personal protective equipment (PPE), and challenging to clear away with ordinary household tools and products. We are uniquely qualified to help members of our community recover from the effects of a fire, no matter how it started or how extensive the damage.

Fire damage mitigation and remediation typically start with removal of the water and chemicals the fire department used to quell the flames. The multiple certifications SERVPRO employees hold from the IICRC are of great benefit to our customers, as our crews efficiently manage first the water and then the soot removal. The assessing crew chief puts together a thorough task agenda, and our Fire and Smoke Restoration Technicians (FSRT) match cleaning products and tools to the varying types of soot found throughout your home.

Lighter ash vacuums up well, and dry sponges remove traces on both horizontal and vertical surfaces. Thicker, sticky soot from slow-burning electrical cords or fabric and padding needs help from cleaners with surfactants and wetting agents to break up the coating. Agitation also loosens this type of soot, and cloths or damp sponges wipes it away. Protein-based deposits from the grease and food in a kitchen fire adheres tightly, thin but extremely malodorous. Abrasives and solvents might be needed to remove this common residue.

Mold Remediation
Finding mold damage in your Fayetteville home can be a stomach-churning moment for a homeowner. The media shares frightening information about household mold infestations, and you might be fearful that the mold could expose your family to the risk of health issues. We recommend you speak to your health care provider about any concerns you have concerning molds and illness. We are ready to devise a plan to remediate any structural harm a microbial infestation caused.

When the SERVPRO mold remediation crew assesses the fungal growth in your home, we look not only for visible organisms but also consider whether the mold colony also extends behind walls and above ceilings. Mold spores need only water, a food source, and oxygen to thrive, not light.

Once we establish the spread of the mold, we contain the area. Using durable plastic sheeting to partition the affected space, we seal off the area employing the negative pressure of an air scrubbing machine. Mold scrapes and brushes off solid surfaces. We add a soda blasting option to clear mold from porous materials, scouring off the growth, and interfering with the continued growth of deeply embedded hyphae, the “roots” of mold.

We vacuum up debris and residues, bagging them with the moldy material for hazardous waste disposal. Final surface treatment with  EPA-registered antimicrobials completes the job. The procedure we use, developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), eliminates current mold colonies. To inhibit the return of mold growth, you must manage the moisture in your home.

Storm Damage
Strong winds and even tornadic activity paired with heavy precipitation can cause flood damage to Fayetteville home. Trees and utility poles crush roofs and destroy siding when winds knock them over. A train of violent storms, one following another, causes the supersaturated ground to loosen roots and also results in seepage into your foundation. Breaches in your home’s exterior permit substantial quantities of water to invade, flooding several levels before pooling in the basement.

Severe storm damage requires the help of SERVPRO’s disaster responders. Fast action is needed to secure your home with tarps and boards, preventing additional rain from entering. An experienced project manager assesses the scene and devises a plan to contain and remove the collected water. The fluid is designated as highly contaminated, often containing sewer backup and debris from overland flooding. Human and animal pathogens may be in the mix, and it is essential that we contain and dispose of the fluid containing them as required by local rules.

We use submersible pumps and high-efficiency wanded extractors to evacuate the flooding. Both types of equipment operate without the need for your electricity, using gas and generator-powered if needed to prevent delays. We use thermal scanners to locate trapped water and employ controlled demolition techniques like flood cuts for fluid release and to enhance structural drying. After the floodwater is gone, our technicians use EPA-registered antimicrobials to sanitize the affected area. The space is then dried thoroughly using air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers.
   
SERVPRO of Fayetteville / Springdale has a solution for every kind of disaster that strikes and damages your home. Call (479) 419-5544 for kind, compassionate, and highly skilled help.

Preventing Flood Damage in Johnson, AR

3/20/2019 (Permalink)

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)

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.

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

1/24/2019 (Permalink)

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.
