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.
