Water Restoration is Available 24/7 in Little Rock From SERVPRO

Little Rock has a rich history, and surprisingly, the number one point of interest is not a monument, museum, or plaque; it is the Little Rock Central High School (LRCHS). This school was the starting point of forced desegregation of public schools after the United States Supreme Court ruled in 1957 that segregation was unlawful and unconstitutional. The school is located at the corner of Park Street and the renamed Daisy L Gatson Bates Drive. 

Central High School opened in 1869 after the former public school, the Sherman School, a school that operated out of a wooden shack-like structure, got replaced due to Little Rock's growth. Because Sherman could no longer accommodate the number of students, a larger school needed to be built.  The structure got updated in 1927 in the Gothic Revival Style, and the building received praise as the largest and most expensive high school in the United States. The four statues placed around the interest represent the four pillars of successful education and are: 

  • Ambition
  • Personality
  • Opportunity 
  • Preparation 

Daisy Gatson-Bates in Little Rock

Daisy Bates was a central figure in the integration of Little Rock schools. She was born in the southern part of the state and later relocated to Little Rock as a young woman. Raised by her mother's family's close friend, they told her mother died, and her father abandoned her. She eventually reconnected with her father, who told her not to fill herself with anger concerning her mother's death but rather turn her energy towards helping people move forward and live peacefully together in Little Rock. This led to Daisy getting elected as the President of the Arkansas NAACP branches. She turned her focus on education and the need for students of all ethnic backgrounds to attend school together, and she heralded the integration of Central High School in the late 1950s.

Do Little Rock Homeowners Need Professional Water Restoration After Water Tank Leaks?

There can be multiple issues that require professional water restoration services in Little Rock properties after a water tank leak. 

There are a few things the determine how much of a problem exists in the home after this type of water damage, such as: 

  • The location of the tank
  • How much water dispersed into the home
  • The amount of time that passed before the cleanup began

If the tank is in an upstairs utility room, SERVPRO techs need to address water between floors in the floor joists and possible ceiling issues below. The average tank in a home is 30 to 55 gallons, and that is a tremendous amount of water released in a home requiring multiple extraction units for removal. 

SERVPRO of Little Rock at (501) 803-9700 serves the local Little Rock area for all types of professional water restoration. The techs arrive quickly and make the water damage, “Like it never even happened.”
