SERVPRO Restores Little Rock Properties Following a Damaging Water Event--FAST!
Damage from a Water Loss at Your Little Rock Home? Yikes!
Many Little Rock residents had few recreational options to choose from this summer. The Historic Arkansas River Flood shut down golf courses, parks, ball fields, and cycling trails throughout the city for weeks. However, many water-front residents continue to fill their spare time dealing with water damage in their homes. Broken pipes split hoses in a washing machine can lead to a damaging water event.
The SERVPRO team handles Little Rock water damage for residential structures every day. We have the experience, the know-how, equipment, and certifications to take care of any of the myriads of water losses facing you.
Damaged books, papers, documents - Paper makes up some of our most valuable belongings. Fine artworks, photographs, marriage certificates, legal documents, and even money, are just some of the examples. Paper is a product made from wood, an organic substance that deteriorates quickly when wet. There is a good chance that we have the equipment and know the techniques to dry and restore your pieces of sentimental items, making you feel, "Like it never even happened." The quicker you make the call to SERVPRO, the higher the chance for you to pass those mementos down to your family's next generation of loved ones.
Document drying is as much an art as a science. Generally, pages in a book or that valuable document may still show signs of water stains or structural irregularities. We can at our facility use a freeze-drying method in an almost vacuum to stabilize and prevent further deterioration of the paper content. This process, call lyophilization, sublimates carbon dioxide--dry ice-- taking away residual moisture directly to a gaseous state. It can be complicated and may be useful for special documents.
Damaged furniture, wood - Also made from trees, wooden materials, and furniture are organic and can easily deteriorate if not dried and treated quickly, but at the correct rate to avoid splitting. Industries today find many uses for wood in different environments. Wood is pre-treated with chemicals that increase its longevity and strength or make it fire-retardant, easy to paint, or strong enough to withstand maximum weight limits and pressures. Each calls for unique drying techniques to prevent damage like warping, breaking, rotting, and molding. SERVPRO's team uses air movers, dehumidifiers, drying mats, and pumps to salvage your wooden floors and furniture.
