Restoration Pros from SERVPRO Perform Water Damage Cleanup
Palmdale, California’s motto is “A Place to Call Home.” The city lives up to the name for over 155,000 residents, according to 2019 census data. While this community was officially incorporated in 1962, Palmdale’s existence as a settlement can be traced back over 11,000 years to various Native American cultures.
The path to modern Palmdale started with the founding of Palmenthal, a village created by European immigrants who had traveled from the Midwest in 1886. Many of these settlers were German and Swiss Lutheran families. The name comes from the same word in German, meaning “palm valley.”
Today, Palmdale’s landmarks include:
- Blackbird Airpark, a flight test museum at Edwards Air Force Base
- Antelope Valley Indian Museum, a public museum that has also been a dude ranch, a theater, a movie set, and a homestead
- Antelope Valley Winery, a local winery that hosts tasting rooms, a quarterly wine club, and a seasonal farmer’s market on the Donato Family Vineyard from May to November
Palmdale’s Blackbird Airpark
This flight test museum, dedicated in 1991, is an annex of the Air Force Flight Test Museum at Edwards Air Force Base. The park exists as a memorial and exhibition of Blackbird military aircraft by showcasing restored models and commemorating those who participated in developing these Cold War-era planes.
Aircraft enthusiasts may know this airpark as the only location in the world that showcases a unique lineup:
- The Lockheed SR-71A, a long-range, high-altitude plane that specialized in reconnaissance
- The SR-71A’s predecessor, the Lockheed A-12
- The supersonic reconnaissance drone D-21, which began development in 1962
- The last remaining Lockheed U-2D recon aircraft in the world
One unique feature of the Blackbird Airpark is that visitors can purchase bricks to personalize with their own names or those of loved ones to place at a memorial to various key figures who helped make this lineup of iconic planes a reality, including Allen Dulles, Tony LeVier, Clarence “Kelly” Johnson, Bob Gilliland, and Lou Schalk.
Restoring Water-Damaged Fibers and Upholstery
SERVPRO’s water damage cleanup process for Palmdale business is methodical and scientific, taking Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) benchmarks into account during restoration.
Several fabric characteristics are taken into account by restoration pros during the cleanup process:
- Type of Fabric. Crushed or sculptured velvet is more sensitive to heat and wet cleaning than brocade, but brocade fabrics are vulnerable to shrinkage.
- Fabric Weave. The way fibers are women together to make fabric affects the durability and cleaning process. Jacquard weaves, for example, have unique patterns that require extra delicacy during cleaning
- Drapery Lining. Whether drapes are lined with fabric, a millium lining, or a rubberized layer affects the restoration process
- Furniture Construction. Understanding various facets of construction and applications of upholstery is essential for restoration and repair, including how frames are constructed and what types of filling and insulation are used
