Flooding in office space The ceiling in this office caved in after a pipe burst and flooded the space.

Flooding in your Little Rock business can be time-consuming, expensive, and overwhelming. If you do not recover quickly, you could potentially lose customers or even go out of business. Working with an established and reputable restoration company to remediate damage can make a crucial difference in returning your business to normal operations.

Preparedness is another important key to getting back to business. SERVPRO® has created tools to help prepare you for a catastrophic event such as a flood. With our Emergency Ready Plan® (ERP) we will assess your property in person, look for potential vulnerabilities, and make recommendations that can minimize damage. Our team will also locate all of your emergency shut-offs and other key locations and compile this information into our ERP app for your use.  

You can then personalize your profile to appoint team members to make decisions if you are unavailable during a crisis. The ERP will also include a blueprint of your business, names of important contacts and phone numbers, utility shut-off locations, and any other important information you want to include. You also can indicate that you want SERVPRO® to respond in the event of an emergency, which can help speed up the mitigation process. 

The SERVPRO® ERP allows a business owner to indicate priorities regarding areas of the business to restore first or documents or records to inventory and pack out. Take the opportunity to work with our IICRC certified technicians on ideas that can keep at least a portion of your business open during the recovery so that your clientele does not lose confidence in your products or services during the restoration process.

SERVPRO® of Little Rock is ready to work with you to recover from a flooding event. Take our service to another level by developing an Emergency Ready Plan and Profile. Call 501-803-9700 to get the process started

Water Damage Repairs After Disasters in Little Rock Offices

Needed Water Damage Repairs for the Office

Leaks and flooding in an office building can rapidly overwhelm much of its construction materials. As such, restoration features repairs and build-back services to get you back up and running again.

Where Has the Water Damaged the Building? 

Assessing the need for water damage repair in your Little Rock office building can be the first step in restoration and recovery. Damages range substantially from one material to another, so repairs and reconstruction often go hand-in-hand with efficient restoration solutions. Common concerns include:

  • Flooring

Glue-down carpeting is common in office buildings, and these materials are very rapidly overcome by water damage. Their thin composition absorbs as much water as possible, and without the ability to saturate the concrete subflooring, these materials support pooling and standing water threats. Carpeting is often removed and replaced to make the restoration process efficient.

  • Walls

While the framing of wall systems in commercial structures like your office building might be less susceptible to water damage, the drywall covering the outsides of these constructions is highly porous. Panels exposed to water damage are often removed and replaced as drying completes.

  • Ceilings 

With many office buildings fitted with ceiling tiles, water damage can quickly show on these fragile and sensitive installations. Drop ceilings cannot withstand the weight of saturated tiles, so these individual components begin to drop or break apart. Our professionals remove all exposed ceiling tiles for efficient drying and replace these discarded elements with new pieces.

Post-water damage cleanup and repairs can encompass many needs for your office building. As challenging as this can be to keep production up during the recovery, our professionals have effective mitigation strategies beginning with water damage repair.

Can SERVPRO Maintain Normal Commercial Operations During Water Removal in Little Rock?

Water removal in a commercial building in Little Rock can disrupt day-to-day operations, affecting employees, customers, suppliers, and cash flow.

Establishing containment areas prevents contaminants from spreading to uncontaminated areas, allows employees to continue working, and protects employees and customers from any pollutants or mold spores that may be present. We wrap the area in 6-mil polyethylene from floor to ceiling and seal doors and windows.

SERVPRO technicians may also establish clean rooms, equipment rooms, and areas where we bag materials before removal. We take all necessary precautions to prevent the further spread of contaminated materials to employee workspaces and customer-facing work areas unaffected by the damage from water leaks.

The SERVPRO ERP Plan Provides Protection For and Against Water Damaging Events to Your Commercial Work Place in Little Rock

Everything you worked for to establish a thriving Little Rock business can wash away if a significant water loss occurs on your commercial property. Whether the water invading your company is from a plumbing leak, runoff from a storm, or backup from the sewer, or a combination, you need help from a trustworthy restoration company. 

Your Little Rock business needs fast water removal day or night when an emergency arises. Water losses quickly cause significant damage to the structure and the contents of your business, and the situation worsens hour by hour. A practical and proactive option we offer to business owners is a predetermined emergency plan, designed exclusively for the physical layout of your commercial property, the type of business you conduct, and the likelihood that contaminated water is an issue. 

The SERVPRO Emergency READY Plan and Profile (ERP) takes a few steps to complete. You set up a time for an experienced manager to walk through your site before any emergency. Our team leader views your property for potential vulnerabilities, including areas where excess water could be collected and inventory, records, systems, and supplies that are at risk for severe damage if any circumstances require water removal. Expect suggestions from our experts to minimize the effect of an emergency necessitating pumping and extracting large quantities of water. 

We also direct you to the SERVPRO ERP mobile app, a tool for you to give us more information to make a water removal scenario even more seamless. Take a few minutes to identify key staff or family who can act on your behalf if a water crisis occurs when you are out of town or otherwise unavailable. Mark the locations of utility shut-offs and share with us the names of contractors and vendors who installed systems and equipment for your business in case we need to discuss restoration and restarting issues. 

Note that SERVPRO is your preferred restoration company, permitting us to get to work immediately. As we collaborate to finalize the plan, we explain what you and your staff can anticipate when we arrive to start the water removal and complete applied structural drying. We will discuss ways to help you keep at least part of your business operating during a crisis. Maintaining responsiveness and a customer service presence give your customers confidence that you can weather this catastrophe. 

Responsible business owners work with SERVPRO of Northwest Little Rock to create an ERP in the event of a water or other disaster. Call (501) 803-9700 to schedule a planning appointment to ensure a quick recovery and minimal disruption in operations if professional water removal becomes necessary.

Water Damage Restoration for Little Rock Businesses

5/11/2022 (Permalink)

Closeup view of office from floor level. Carpeting is often damaged during a commercial water loss event. Our SERVPRO team is always ready-to-go to restore your business.

SERVPRO Restores Wet Business Premises and Contents

Office blocks help support multiple businesses that lease floors or sections of each level. Sometimes an unforeseen emergency occurs, such as water intrusion, that can hamper businesses' ability to function correctly. One of the most common areas of damage in water intrusion is office carpets which can be porous and quickly absorb excessive moisture. 

Our team provides emergency commercial water damage restoration to Little Rock Businesses. We can dry, clean, and restore the premises following a water intrusion event with minimal business disruption. Our processes encompass all areas of water impact, but we often find our main focus is on flooring and carpeting. Office carpets are most commonly constructed from synthetic materials like polypropylene, with the most durable being made from nylon. These materials are up to fifty percent weaker when wet, so they can easily suffer permanent damage in high foot traffic areas. SERVPRO is a licensed commercial restoration service that can help with:

  • Carpet drying
  • Water restoration 
  • Water mitigation

Our technicians always bring a carpet tool kit when dealing with water intrusion. Standard tools include adhesives, glue guns, knee kickers, razor knives, and seaming irons. Wet carpets often require drying on both sides, which means it is normal for us to detach the carpet to assess the laminate condition. Drying only one side of the carpet can often result in secondary damages further down the line. These damages can include mold growth, malodor, or microbial infestation. We also pack adhesives to ensure that salvageable carpets can be reattached once complete drying process. One example of drying the undersides of the carpeting is by floating the carpet using air movers to circulate warm, dry air onto the laminates and flooring beneath.

  • Wet carpets often require the replacement of the carpet pad, which can absorb moisture and break apart.
  • PVC pipes are often used to support floated carpets and allow us to direct warm air beneath. 
  • Carpet pads are cut into smaller pieces using a duckbill knife and disposed of with new replacements.

Avoid carpet damage at your premises. Contact SERVPRO of Little Rock for commercial water damage restoration at (501) 803-9700.

Flash Flood Damage Puts Little Rock Businesses at Risk

Storms, pushing their way through Little Rock, place local businesses at risk of severe destruction. Heavy rains and high winds, including tornadoes, have been in the news for weeks. When the conditions are right, commercial buildings can fill with overland or flash floodwaters. Professional water removal and structural drying are crucial to save your business.

Commercial flood damage in Little Rock impacts the entire community and state where it occurs. The capital city relies on a robust economic climate to get the business of governing done. When public institutions and the businesses that support them suffer from flooding, we take on the challenge to return even significant commercial damage to pre-disaster conditions.

SERVPRO can respond to extensive flooding in one or more buildings. SERVPRO backs our local presence by a nationwide network of other commercial flood damage remediation experts. Rapid water removal and whole-building structural drying are crucial to halting the damage and transforming a chaotic mess back to “Like it never even happened.”

Investments in employee training and up-to-date equipment are vital components to the SERVPRO approach. Our technicians pursue advanced training from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), the restoration industry’s standard development organization. Our management seeks leading-edge equipment upgrades that efficiently respond to commercial damages and guarantee project success.

Experienced project managers assess the flood progression and the damage done when our team arrives. We then craft a plan to pump and extract the contaminated floodwaters, disposing of them according to local hazardous waste regulations. SERVPRO technicians clean soiled surfaces and sanitize with EPA-registered disinfectants.

Precision moisture meters establish baselines for structural component drying goals. SERVPRO technicians monitor moisture reduction as powerful air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers dry out all affected spaces. As we complete these tasks, we pay particular attention to any evidence of microbial growth. The contamination present in floodwaters enhances the possibility of microbial infestation. Not removing moisture causes mold to grow within 24-48 hours.

SERVPRO of Little Rock is a reliable flood damage remediation company, able to manage significant commercial water damage. Call us at (501) 803-9700 for a professional assessment and abatement plan.

  • Deodorizing pellets to help neutralize the smell
  • Thermal foggers disperse odor-fighting solutions and permeate porous surfaces with them
  • Ozone generators kill smell particles and purify the air

When you reach out to SERVPRO of Little Rock at (501) 803-9700 to help restore your business after a fire, you make the right decision. Our specialized equipment and industry expertise will have you and your shop feeling “Like it never even happened.”

Why Is It Essential to Resolve Water Damage in Little Rock Retail Stores Properly?

11/15/2021 (Permalink)

A clothing storm with dresses hanging Any business is a priority. SERVPRO of Little Rock understands this completely.

SERVPRO Can Help You Avoid the Risks That Come With Water Intrusion Into Business Premises

Water intrusion may not be one of the things that you lose sleep over if you operate a retail store in Little Rock. However, when an incident happens, it can quickly turn from an inconvenience to a nightmarish situation with many issues to resolve. For instance, the presence of water can lead to unexpected damage to stock. Slick floors also create slip hazards, and if someone is injured, you might compensate them.

Resolving water damage in your Little Rock retail store is essential to address issues that might interfere with your business directly or indirectly. Seeking professional assistance may be necessary for a faster or thorough resolution of the problem. SERVPRO technicians can help you identify all problems and resolve them easily. This is possible by taking preventive steps in the early stages then following up with a thorough restoration.

Some essential preventive steps include:

  • Containing electrical hazards
  • Minimizing slip and trip hazards
  • Halting moisture migration

Some water leaks, especially from the ceiling or walls, are likely to reach the wiring systems. Turning off electricity eliminates the chances of shorts or shock. It is possible to cut off electricity to the entire building or just the affected areas at the power distribution box. Our SERVPRO teams are equipped with portable generators to run electric equipment for restoration tasks without exposing anyone to electrical hazards.

Although water makes many hard floor materials such as tiles slippery, the danger might not be readily apparent. Apart from helping extract standing water faster and dry wet areas, our SERVPRO crews also have warning signs that we can deploy all over your property, helping warn customers and staff of the imminent danger. That way, we can focus on moisture control to halt the deterioration of contents and structural materials.

SERVPRO of Little Rock offers comprehensive solutions that address water damage, “Like it never even happened.” Call us at (501) 803-9700 to help you resume regular business operations.

SERVPRO Technicians Have Extensive Training in Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration

After a Little Rock commercial property has fire damage, some property owners make the mistake of either self-cleaning or handing off the task to their regular janitorial staff. This can result in greater costs to the property owner in terms of needing to replace articles and structural elements.

Professional fire restoration in Little Rock business properties needs to begin as rapidly as possible. SERVPRO technicians arrive quickly and have a dedicated crew chief that works one-on-one with the property owner or the designated person representing the business. This ensures that the business owner never wonders what is going on with the cleanup and when the company can reopen.

One of the biggest requests business owners have is staying open during the fire damage mitigation service. Often that is not feasible because:

  • The property may be unsafe due to charred building materials
  • Soot can be an irritant to the skin and lungs
  • Wherever soot spreads, it can create an unpleasant odor

The technicians are available 24/7 to work around the clock to restore a property. This enables any needed controlled demolition to happen and the cleanup of all affected surfaces to occur. The SERVPRO crew chief can give the property owner an estimate of the time frame for the fire cleanup and interior cleaning. This allows employees to work at home and make alternative work schedules until the building is safe to work in again. If there is any change due to additional damage not seen during the service, the crew chief will notify the contact for the client immediately. This communication keeps customers informed about what is going on and helps reduce stress over the situation.

SERVPRO of Little Rock at (501) 803-9700 has the training and resources to handle any size fire restoration and get Little Rock commercial properties reopened as rapidly as possible. 

Do You Need Professional Mold Remediation in Your Little Rock Office?

mold growing in the corner of a room on the walls Finding mold in your office is certainly an issue. Contact Team SERVPRO right away to come out and investigate and then remediate the mold damage.

SERVPRO Offers Reliable and Safe Mold Remediation to Little Rock Businesses

Having mold damage does not necessarily mean visible mold growth. Other indicators such as a moldy odor or an unmitigated water issue might also indicate mold. Professional mold remediation of your Little Rock office by SERVPRO can prevent mold from spreading throughout the structure and affecting the air quality. 

SERVPRO restorers use a variety of methods during mold remediation of your Little Rock office. The procedures used depend on the size of the contaminated area and the type of affected material. SERVPRO professionals can schedule mold inspections, remediations, and removal activities during off-hours when the occupants are less likely to be affected.  

Remediation Methods That SERVPRO Mold Specialists Use in Little Rock Commercial Spaces

The three most common methods of mold removal that SERVPRO techs use are-

  • Wet-vacuuming- Used if a moldy area contains standing water or if the materials in the area, such as carpets, are still wet. SERVPRO techs pull up wet carpets to speed up the drying process. 
  • Damp wiping- Mold growth on hard, non-porous surfaces is removed by wet wiping with a detergent. Mold growing on porous surfaces might be difficult, if not impossible, to remove. If the damage is severe, SERVPRO mold experts might have to discard the material altogether. 
  • High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) vacuuming- It is used as a final cleanup method of the contaminated area once the materials are fully dry. SERVPRO techs use this method to clean the dust that has settled outside the containment. 

Materials that are heavily contaminated and can’t be salvaged are double-bagged in 6-mil plastic bags and discarded according to EPA regulations.

Little Rock Business Closures Get Reopened Quicker with SERVPRO's Water Cleanup and Restoration Services

Water damage can affect your restaurant in several different ways. While you are always insistent on keeping up with the needs of the building so that you always have customers satisfied with the experience that they get when they come to your eatery, some things are just out of your control. When you face a water emergency in your restaurant, though, seeking professional restoration services is a wise decision.  

You might not instantly think of water damage to your Little Rock restaurant as that big of a deal, but various considerations must get made when you face a scenario like this. For starters, you have to consider the most efficient way of cleaning up the mess and restoring the damage so that you are not fighting this problem over an extended period or allowing the situation to get worse than it already is. SERVPRO IICRC technicians get trained to handle all manner of water damage, so we know how to handle any situation and can work quickly to bring your establishment back to its preloss condition. 

Water Damage Can Lead to Mold Damage

The longer that you wait to resolve an issue like this, the more likely compounding damages result. An excellent example of this would be mold growth throughout the affected area due to the heightened moisture and dampness. Every facet of restoration is intricate and involved, but adding mold remediation on top of what you already face could close your doors for a much longer time.  

You, of course, have your profits to consider in a situation like this, as the longer, you wait to resolve the issue, the longer you go without the flow of customer traffic your eatery typically draws. This also poses a damaging situation for employees of your business who rely on the income provided to them. Without the restaurant being open and serving patrons, these employees would be asked not to come into work until the situation has gotten resolved, leaving them short of their average income expectancy. 

These are a few reasons that SERVPRO of Little Rock is a wise choice for your water damage restoration needs. Our experienced technicians are available 24/7 by calling (501) 803-9700.

Local Little Rock Property Owners Rely on SERVPRO for Commercial Fire Damage Restoration

Post-fire in local commercial properties needs several layers of recovery to get back to business. In particular, enterprises that serve the public need to ensure there are no reminders of the fire. 

Little Rock commercial fire damage services are crucial for ridding a property of all traces of the fire.

It is not unusual for the technicians to deal with both water damage and smoke residues in the same area of the structure.

Little Rock Businesses Benefit From SERVPRO's Experience and Training for Handling Mold Damage

Whether a property is used as a commercial-residential development or other business venture, the optimum public health standards must get observed. 

One of the key elements for handling commercial mold damage in Little Rock business properties lies in locating the problem sustaining the mold growth within the structure. SERVPRO technicians have the experience, training, and equipment to diagnose the problem and recommend the proper actions to halt the issue.

While 100% of airborne mold spores cannot get removed as they occur naturally both indoors and outdoors, the issue begins when these dormant spores encounter the right conditions within a structure to germinate and spread. The habitat that is most hospitable to mold colonies are:

  • Wet areas with poor drainage
  • Unresolved slow leaks
  • Failing venting trapping humid air

The technicians address the mold that is visible and growing within a structure while searching for the root cause of the infestation. Returning the commercial property to a sanitized standard that is healthy for both employees and patrons is a priority. 

SERVPRO of Little Rock at (501) 803-9700 handles the safe and complete commercial mold damage remediation for local Little Rock Properties.

What Could Have Caused Mold to Grow Inside Our Facility? 

Several issues call for the assistance of trusted mold removal companies in Little Rock, such as our crew at SERVPRO. Some of the more common reasons for mold development include:

What are the Most Common Types of Commercial Water Damage?

9/23/2020 (Permalink)

Check list SERVPRO works to provide Fast and Efficient Water Damage Cleanup and Restoration to Your Little Rock Commercial Property.

When water damages a Little Rock commercial structure, rely on the professionals from SERVPRO to mitigate the situation.

Even with regular inspections in your Little Rock property, a commercial water damage event can occur. Here are the top five most common reasons for a business to experience the need for restoration services due to water-related issues:   

  • A leak from a roof or around a window  
  • Fire suppression system malfunction  
  • Plumbing or supply line break  
  • Toilet backup  
  • Flooding from heavy rains

Does a Business Need to Close During Commercial Water Damage Repair?  

SERVPRO technicians ascertain on a case-by-case basis if a business needs to close during commercial water damage repair in Little Rock. Even if the water extraction and drying needs were minimal, the danger of slip and fall accidents or the need to remove stock or business furniture for water removal purposes could make it difficult to conduct normal daily activities. 

In situations where the water within the structure contains sewage or other harmful elements, the techs generally recommend closure of the building during the cleanup. This is because this type of water is not only hazardous to come into contact with; it can cause issues if it is aspirated. SERVPRO techs wear professional-quality protective gear that includes a respirator, so they do not breathe in biohazard materials. Air scrubbers or the creation of negative air chambers may be necessary to improve the air quality during the restoration services.

There are Several Telltale Signs of Water Damage, but Periodic Inspections by Trained Professionals in Little Rock is the Surest Way to Know for Certain

Water leaks are not always readily apparent, especially if they are small. They can develop slowly over time and inconspicuously damage your Little Rock business and its valuable inventory.

SERVPRO, a Little Rock commercial water damage remediation service, says that business owners can sometimes identify water damage if they know what to look for. According to our trained experts, the following signs could indicate you have a water leak:

    •    Foul musty smells
    •    Black, brown, pink, or white fungal growths on ceilings, walls, or baseboards
    •    Discolored or waterstained attic rafters and other structural components
    •    Deteriorating plaster/drywall or bubbling wallpaper/paint
    •    Buckling floors/ceilings or wall warping

As a leak progresses, these issues usually become worse and easier to detect. Unfortunately, this also means that by the time you notice water damage, it could be quite severe and expensive to repair. This is why it is always preferable to have your property periodically inspected by trained professionals so that potential problems can be spotted early.

How Can SERVPRO Find Hidden Water Damage and Locate Water Leak Sources?

SERVPRO technicians are trained and experienced in finding hidden water damage and locating sources of water leaks. They perform these crucial tasks with the help of specialized state-of-the-art detection equipment.  Some of the tools they use to perform their inspections include sensors that can find moisture in structural elements, meters that measure the amount of moisture in these components, and material-penetrating infrared cameras that can uncover water leak sources behind baseboards, walls, and ceilings. Using these high-tech devices, our experts can often find water issues much sooner than business owners.

With all that said, you should take potential water damage seriously. Routinely look for signs of water leaks and have your property periodically inspected by trained professionals. If you need any help, contact SERVPRO of Northwest Little Rock at (501) 803-9700.

SERVPRO Uses Professional Products to Disinfect Surfaces 

When you come into your Little Rock spa and see that water leaked from an upstairs bathroom all over the floor and on some of your massage tables, you may be in a state of shock, especially if you have clients coming in for services at any minute. Before you call your customers to reschedule, it is smart to contact a professional restoration company like SERVPRO to begin emergency services and mitigate further damage. We understand the need to thoroughly disinfect after any water leak, especially if you are unsure of the cleanliness of the water.

How Do I Know if the Water is Contaminated?

SERVPRO Uses Extra Personal Safety Precautions with Gray or Black Water

There are different types of water cleanup in Little Rock, depending on the kind of leak. If the water came from a pipe in the wall or sink chances are it is clean water (level 1). It would be either gray (level 2) or black (level 3) water if it came from the toilet. If technicians are unsure, they make sure to treat the spill like it is contaminated water and take additional precautions like wearing PPE (personal protection equipment).

What is the Difference Between Sanitizing and Disinfecting?

  • Both are antimicrobial treatments that limit or stop microorganisms from growing.
  • Disinfectants destroy about 99% of microorganisms.
  • Sanitizers decrease microorganism growth but do not eliminate it.

Since you are running a health spa, SERVPRO technicians typically use EPA-registered disinfectants such as Benefect® or Microban® to eliminate microorganism growth, giving you confidence that your business is clean and ready to resume services. You may hear people refer to sterilizing surfaces; however, only hospitals and other medical establishments are usually the only places that complete sterilization can occur. Sterilizers kill all microorganisms, but most objects cannot withstand the chemicals used for sterilization. “Food Safe” disinfecting is the standard for home and commercial cleaning.
