Flooding in Brooklyn Park/Champlin

6/13/2022 (Permalink)

A basement can flood at any time in the Brooklyn Park area, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall. Basements are inherently prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a building and are normally built partly or entirely below ground level. There are a number of reasons why your basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • Sump Pump Failure
  • And many more

Fire Tips

5/24/2022 (Permalink)

Everyone always seems to have great advice about what you should do if you experience fire damage – call your insurance company, secure the property, call a restoration team, and so forth. Something they do not often point out is the many things you want to be sure NOT to do.

Here are a few of those things you should know about if you are dealing with fire damage at your home:

  • Do not try to keep any food items. Including canned goods, which were inside the house during the fire. High heat can render them dangerous to consume. They should be thrown out and in some cases, you can itemize the cost to replace them as part of your insurance claim.
  • Do not deal with fire ash and residue on your own. If you handled the wrong way it could damage walls, ceilings, and other surfaces. It could also cause respiratory distress and damage if you breathe it in.
  • If there was heavy smoke, do not try to reuse carpeting or upholstered furniture. They will need to be replaced due to the chance of it causing respiratory problems in the future.
  • Do not turn on any electrical appliances. This includes computers, which were in a smoke-filled room before they have been checked out and professionally cleaned. There may ash and debris inside the components, and if turned on could cause more damage. 
  • Do not enter the home until you have been told it is safe to do so. If you are not given that clearance due to structural integrity concerns, do not go in. 

At SERVPRO of Brooklyn Park we want you to be safe after your home experiences fire damage. We have the expertise to handle everything for you and get your home restored while not putting you in danger. We can work with your insurance company to make your fire damage restoration less stressful for you.

If you experience any fire damage, contact SERVPRO of Brooklyn Park. We can be reached at 763-295-1161

Here to Help!

Once the fire trucks are gone, your journey is just beginning. That is because your home almost certainly suffered smoke and fire damage. As well as possible water damage. The professionals at SERVPRO of Brooklyn Park have the skills and equipment necessary to restore your house to the way it was before the fire.

Each fire is different and every home or business requires its own specific approach, but the following is the general process we follow in a typical fire damage restoration situation:

  1. Emergency response. When you make your call to us, the restoration process begins. Our customer service representative will ask the right questions so that we can respond quickly and bring along the right resources and equipment.
  1. Inspection and assessment. We inspect the impacted area and adjoining rooms to find out the extent of the soot, smoke and other fire damage, then we can develop our plan of action.
  1. Securing the structure. Preventing further damage is essential, so we take immediate action to board up broken windows, shore up damaged walls and put tarps over damaged sections of the roof.
  1. Water removal. When water damage is present, we immediately start water removal. Dehumidifiers and air movers are used to get all the water from your home and complete the drying process.
  1. Surface soot and smoke removal. Using special equipment and time-tested techniques, we get rid of soot and smoke from the ceiling, all walls and other hard surfaces.
  1. Cleaning and disinfecting. Restorable items require cleaning and sanitizing. A variety of cleaning products and techniques are used to accomplish this as appropriate. This process includes odor removal using foggers and industrial-strength air scrubbers.
  1. Restoration. Getting things back to normal is the final step in the process. This can involve small repairs, drywall replacement, new carpet installation, painting and more. Major construction may sometimes also be required.

For an easy and hassle-free experience, trust SERVPRO of Brooklyn Park to help manage everything for you, including the insurance claims process.

Winter Storms

Central Minnesota Storm Damage

Emergency Preparedness 
Emergency preparedness is no longer the only concern of states like California with earthquakes or our friends who live in the area known as "Tornado Alley." For us Minnesotan's, winter storms and blizzards are common; knowing what to do during an emergency is an important part of being prepared.

Blizzards, heavy snow, freezing rain and sub-zero temperatures hit hard and frequently across our state. Even if you think you are safe and warm at home, a winter storm can become dangerous if the power is cut off. With a little planning, you can protect yourself and your family from the many hazards of winter weather, both at home and on the road.

BE AWARE OF THE FORECAST

  • Winter Weather Advisory: Weather conditions may alert us to know that we are forecasted for snow, blowing and drifting snow, freezing drizzle or rain.  Knowing the conditions that are coming, will help us in being prepared. 

BE PREPARED AT HOME

If we are predicted of having a snow storm and being "stuck" in our house for an extended period of time, make sure to have some essentials on hand. This can include the following:

  • Keep a radio nearby. 
  • Have plenty of flashlights on hand. Make sure to have batteries.
  • Have candles and matches available in case of a power outage.

If Minnesota suffers a winter storm, our home can be compromised. We can have ice dams on our roofs that result in a leak inside. If that occurs, SERVPRO of Brooklyn Park is able to help dry out your home. 

Should you suffer any water damage as a result of a winter storm, please contact SERVPRO of Brooklyn Park for all your needs! We are available 24/7!

Snowy Days

Messy Situations

Minnesota weather can be unpredictable when it comes to the winter temperatures and snow falls.

That is why it is important to stay educated when the winter weather can be so unpredictable. The changes in the weather can cause damages to residential and commercial properties. It can cause pipes to expand and burst. The expanding and bursting of a pipe in a residential or commercial property can cause significant flooding if one is not prepared.

Prepare:

To prepare for this type of weather, one should make sure to inspect their pipes. If a pipe needs replacing, be sure to do this before the cold weather hits.

Prevent:

To prevent large water losses and damage, tag your main water shut off. One should tag their main water shut off to help everyone in the home know where to shut off the water if a pipe is to burst. Hopefully by doing this, one will be able to shut off their water immediately minimizing the loss or damage.

Take Action:

If the unpredictable winter over hauls all of your preparing and preventing, take action by calling SERVPRO of Brooklyn Park immediately and we will be there to assist you. We area available 24/7 to ensure that one can be helped at any hour that they need.
