We Act Fast To Limit More Damage In Little Rock After A Water Damage Disaster
Drying Glue-Down Carpet in Your Little Rock High School
When water lines spring a leak in the ceiling above the administration offices of your Little Rock high school, several structural elements and areas could become severely affected by this development. Because water pools along the flooring, addressing these concerns should be one of the priorities of our responding SERVPRO team. We can work to provide mitigation services that protect exposed furniture, flooring, and the critical documentation kept in the offices.
The need for water removal in a Little Rock school might not be as damaging and destructive if the right containment measures can get taken quickly. If this water loss can get held to the office area exclusively, you can continue to run in a limited capacity while our technicians begin mitigation and drying efforts. Clearing surface water and drying out carpeting can help our team to get a fast handle on the water damage threat before the situation gets out of control.
Depending on the severity of the water breach in the pipes from the ceiling, the office areas could contend with several inches of standing water even when a fast response occurs. With the glue-down carpeting common to school office buildings, there is only a thin layer of short pile carpet stretched over a concrete pad rather than wooden subflooring, padding, and the thickness of carpeting you might expect in a residential setting.
Because We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster, our SERVPRO team can utilize our light carpet wands to pull water from both the surface and from inside the flooring material. Once we have made a complete pass with this tool over the full water damaged area, the rest of the moisture can get removed with a combination of centrifugal air movers and dehumidifiers. This approach prevents the need to detach the carpet from the concrete and reinstall it after drying occurs.
Addressing water damage in your school office can help to keep documents safe and prevent the replacement of carpeting and other structural elements. With effective mitigation services that can begin as soon as our professionals arrive, we can get you back to business as usual quickly.
