What To Expect In Water Damage Cleanup In Little Rock
Water intrusion especially from leaking plumbing systems requires immediate attention. Fast extraction of water from the property fast, helps prevent other major problems developing. The longer it takes to start cleanup, the higher the likelihood of such problems developing. For instance, within 24 to 48 hours, mold can start growing. Other issues like staining of carpets or upholstery are also likely to develop. Despite the need for speed, the people cleaning your Little Rock property should follow the right procedures.
A thorough inspection is critical before starting water damage cleanup in Little Rock. While it is obvious, there is water that needs removal, the areas or contents affected by such intrusion might not be evident from casual observation. Our SERVPRO crew uses various devices to track moisture. Using moisture sensors, we can probe soft materials to determine how far the water has migrated. Other devices like thermal hygrometers and moisture meters are also helpful.
Prevention of secondary damage right from the start is also vital. Secondary damage can happen when dyes from non-colorfast fabrics run and stain carpets, upholstery or any near fabrics. Our SERVPRO team helps prevent these issues by removing items that might cause stains from the affected areas. Such items might include area rugs, furniture items, and even books.
Following the correct procedures during cleanup is also essential. Fortunately, if the incident involves clean water, there is no debris or other wastes. However, stains can be a headache. If our SERVPRO team encounters stains on carpets, we clean them while they are still wet because it's easier to get rid of all the traces that way.
Cleanup also involves deodorization because water intrusion tends to lead to foul odors. The most frequent cause of such odor is mold, so drying the property to preloss levels is essential. We have the necessary equipment including air movers and different types of dehumidifiers to dry all excess moisture.
