Drying Carpets after Little Rock Water Damage

A pipe burst is one way your Little Rock home may sustain moisture damage. Such an event can result from freezing temperatures, unusual pressure, and clogs, among other factors. No matter the cause of the pipe burst, it is crucial to act quickly. When a pipe bursts, a significant amount of water can flood your property, damaging porous building materials such as drywall and precious personal items. The absorption gradually ruins the structure and your belongings unless immediate action is taken.

Emergency water cleanup service for Little Rock homes is important when dealing with flooding. You should know that microbial growth begins if your property is not dried within 48 hours. SERVPRO focuses on extracting as much standing water from your home as possible. When contacted soon, our crew can dry the property before the 48-hour period, which minimizes the chances of mold growth. Also, if the water has only flooded a portion of your home, our goal is to keep it from soaking into other areas, especially if you have wood floors.

Other areas that need quick interventions

  • Furniture
  • Clothing
  • Electronics

The floors and items sitting directly on them, such as carpets and furniture, are normally the first casualty after a water intrusion, especially if the burst pipe is situated below a sink. This leads to several inches of water accumulating on your floors.

Carpet restoration 

If the carpet is completely saturated, a truck-mounted extractor with a regular wand can extract a large amount of water. If the rug is not completely covered in water, using a shop vac may suffice as it has enough suction power compared to a regular vacuum cleaner. Moisture can severely damage the carpet padding, so SERVPRO crews remove it and install a new one.

Various carpet drying techniques

  • Floating the carpet
  • In-place drying
  • Hovering the rug over the pad
  • Drying the carpet flat

SERVPRO of Little Rock is committed to providing rapid water cleanup by removing excess moisture in your home, thus preventing issues such as mold growth, basement flooding problems, major structural issues, and more. Call us at (501) 803-9700. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
