The Benefits Of Commercial Duct Cleaning

Running a business is all about production and having your entire team at their best all throughout the year. With this in mind, your Burnsville building might not be all that welcoming to the idea of your employee health and wellbeing. Considering that many business owners do not undertake tasks like cleaning their ductwork in the office building and maintaining these air circulation systems, it is often safe to suggest that debris and dust are common components to the environment.

Fortunately, you do not have to try and figure out a way to clean this intricate system on your own. Duct cleaning for your Burnsville business is only a phone call away, and our SERVPRO crew has the experience and advanced equipment to help you clear out years' worth of dust, debris, and bacteria within a short period.

Your sheet metal ductwork collects dust, dirt, and debris every single day. As this collection mats to the sides of the duct, it can catch more and more of these irritants and particles. Soon, you have an air circulation system that is working much harder than it should to offer the same conditioned air that you have come to expect in the building. Additionally, these clogging pathways continually allow a flow of dust, dirt, and even bacteria throughout the facility.

So you see, duct cleaning by our SERVPRO professionals is two-fold. First, you greatly reduce airborne allergens and viruses. Secondly, you improve the efficiency of the equipment you use, reducing your utility bills in kind. Best of all, our professionals have the equipment to eliminate the spread and plume of this cleaning process, meaning that our team can work at the same times as your own to further encourage productivity in the workplace.

While there are multiple things that a business owner can do to improve the quality of the job for their employees, improving the air quality in the building is indeed something that every property owner should consider.

The Risk of Lingering Moisture After Flooding In Your Farmington Home

Storm Damage The Risk of Lingering Moisture After Flooding In Your Farmington Home Sump Pumps Can Mitigate Storm Damaging Water in Farmington--SERVPRO Tip

Hidden Dampness Post Storms Can Result in Significant Water Damage

Harsh winters can take their toll on the structural integrity of Farmington homes. Most often, homeowners do not even realize the full extent of damage that their home suffered throughout the hardest of winter months until the temperatures return to favorable conditions and snowfall gets replaced with steadier rains. Even worse, the unfortunate way that most people learn about these vulnerable water penetration points in their roof or siding is when water can pour into their houses unabated.

Unfortunately, by the time that you begin to recognize that something is amiss, flood damages have already affected your Farmington home. With the far reaches of water damage, this is not something that even a skilled homeowner can adequately handle on their own. There are risks associated with failing to remove all the moisture and dampness common to flood damages, and the only way to ensure you do is to hire professional restorers.

Our SERVPRO professionals can respond quickly to your call and work to start removing the present water in your home right away. From portable pumps and wet-vacs with extraction wands to more massive truck-mounted pumps from our fleet, we have multiple options when it comes to removing the water quickly. While extraction is a critical component of this restoration process, drying efforts hold an equally valuable place in the procedure.

When it comes to ensuring that the affected areas of your home get thoroughly dried, several pieces of equipment often get used. This process is so essential because lingering moisture and dampness are natural breeding grounds for mold and microbial growth. Through devices like our SERVPRO injectidry system, cavities and hard to reach areas get the air they need to dry entirely.

As challenging as flooding in your home might be, especially when it comes from the attic space, there is nothing that our SERVPRO of Burnsville / Lakeville water restoration professionals cannot help you to overcome. We can respond quickly with the tools and personnel to get the job done right. Give us a call anytime that you need us at (952) 846-4400.

Water Damage Affects Floors in Farmington Residences, Creating Unnecessary Hazards in the Home

Water Damage Water Damage Affects Floors in Farmington Residences, Creating Unnecessary Hazards in the Home Fans like this can be used to dry the remaining water after pumps and extraction wands are used.

SERVPRO can help with water damaged flooring

The lowest section of a room in any Farmington home, the floor, receives the majority of wear and tear under normal conditions. When water seeps through your house's exterior because of misaligned siding, clogged gutters, or other such problems, your floors often pay the price.

A home in Farmington can suffer water damage in many ways, including stained ceilings and deteriorated, crumbling walls under leaky windows. Flooring under affected windows and doorways can also suffer the effects of rainwater. Warping, curling, and splintered pieces, as well as dry-rotted carpeting, can indicate long-term water damage took place. While this may not seem as if it would cause problems, over time, it can eventually create weak spots in floors, even if the underlay consists of a concrete slab.

When the floor in your home suffers from water damage, safety can become a concern. Toddlers already walk quite unsteadily, as do many younger children. A floor full of uneven boards can not only cause falls, but injuries become much more likely to happen. Guests visiting can create embarrassing situations for homeowners, as well as possible medical costs and even lawsuits. Preventable accidents involving others in your home can give insurance companies reason to increase rates.

When water damaged floors have carpeting, the fibers backing the carpet can become dry rotted and start fraying. This fraying worsens every time you use your vacuum cleaner. However, allowing dirt to pile up can lead to the same problems. Wooden underlay, including particle board sheets, can become significantly impacted by water, swelling and even falling apart as the glue disintegrates. SERVPRO technicians can help mitigate the problem area before these adverse situations escalate.

Flooring in kitchens and bathrooms that include tile or linoleum can still experience problems. These surfaces seem hardier than other flooring types, but they can still succumb to water. Grout and other sealants can crumble away when exposed to water for too long, and linoleum can bubble in areas where seams allow water to penetrate underneath. Repairing such issues before increased damages happen saves money because repairs remain smaller and more manageable, as well as the presence of a more significant amount of as-of-yet undamaged materials.

SERVPRO of Burnsville / Lakeville can help your family whenever water damage happens by stopping it from progressing and mitigating any existing problems. We want to return your home's floors to a safe condition like it was before. Call us at (952) 846-4400, at any hour of the day or night. We work within Orchard Garden and Deer Park, also, as well as surrounding areas.

Storm Damage Storm Damages Can Allow Flooding In Your Farmington Home When flooding occurs after a storm or other disaster, a quick call to SERVPRO can summon trained technicians to get your home dry and livable again.

Team SERVPRO First Focuses on Water Extraction After Flood Damage in Your Home

Storms are something that every Farmington homeowner dreads, as many severe weather systems can roll through this region without much warning. While many homes in the area get constructed to withstand natural threats like excessive snowfall and torrential weather, the right conditions could allow for storm damages that impact your home in unforeseen ways.

Something as simple as a tree falling over or losing its branches could have disastrous effects on your house. Under the right circumstances, these same holes or gashes resulting from the fallen tree could allow water to enter your home unabated. The resulting flood damages to your Farmington residence surely require the experience and skill set of a professional restoration team, and fortunately, you always have highly qualified restoration specialists just a phone call away.

Once water has access to the interior of your home, one passing storm could leave high volumes of water for you to face. Once our SERVPRO team arrives, we get to work quickly on helping you to limit further damages by assessing the problems the structural damage caused by the storm. If this damage is too severe for the abilities of our technicians, reconstruction or repairs must occur before our restoration team can begin the process of removing the water and lingering effects from the affected areas.

Extraction is a large part of this process, especially if the water is pooling in specific areas. Once this process gets completed with portable pumps and wet-vacs, our technicians can get to work on drying the remaining moisture and dampness. In flooding situations, often air movers and dehumidifiers are not enough. Specialized equipment can help us to reach into ceilings, in between walls, underneath floors, and many other areas that are challenging to access with our conventional tools of the trade.

While no homeowner wants to contend with the damaging effects of a flood in their home, SERVPRO of Burnsville / Lakeville is here to help. You can trust in the experience and dedication of our water damage restoration specialists. Give us a call anytime you need us at (952) 846-4400.

The Possibility of Water Damage Following a Fire in Your Farmington Home

5/2/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage The Possibility of Water Damage Following a Fire in Your Farmington Home SERVPRO first resolves water damage left behind by extinguishing efforts after a fire in your home.

SERVPRO Technicians Have Experience and Training to Restore Your Home after Fire Damage

There is nothing that can make you overwhelmed quite as much as witnessing the effects of a recent fire on your Farmington residence. While you might not exactly know how to rectify the damages that you see, you are fortunately not alone to have to figure it out on your own. One of the main concerns with more considerable fires is the water damage that is often present after the extinguishment occurs.

While you might be able to identify many of the fire damages that affect your Farmington home following the blaze, there are still multiple issues that require a trained eye and specialized equipment to locate and assess. For as critical as water damage restoration is to specific house fires, having trained technicians like our SERVPRO team can help you to understand the full scope of the damage that the home faces and the best approach to restoring it.

When it comes to contending with the water damage that you could experience in your home after firefighting efforts have completed, our SERVPRO technicians must scope out the farthest reaches of this damage with the use of thermal imagery from an infrared device. Once this persistent water gets found, drying and dehumidification efforts can begin. This process typically involves the use of air movers and dehumidifiers.

One of the primary reasons that addressing this type of damage first before anything else is the hindering nature of this kind of issue to the rest of the fire restoration process. Apart from this, the warmer temperatures annually throughout this region of the country, combined with the dampness and moisture of the incident, could allow for compounding damages like mold growth to occur on top of the long list of fire damage restoration tasks to complete.

While you might not always think about water damages after a fire to your home, this is one of the first things that our experienced team of specialists looks to resolve when we get dispatched to your restoration project. Our SERVPRO of Burnsville / Lakeville technicians are available 24/7 to help you through any disaster your home might experience at (952) 846-4400.

Why Duct Cleaning In Your Burnsville Office Can Increase Production

Commercial Why Duct Cleaning In Your Burnsville Office Can Increase Production Burnsville Offices Have Improved IAQ-Indoor Air Quality-After SERVPRO's Duct Cleaning Service

Let SERVPRO Make Your Workplace More Pleasant with Improved Indoor Air Quality

You might not realize the kind of germs and harmful dust/debris that builds up inside of the ductwork of your Burnsville office building, but that is quite a typical discovery when this network of air channels gets more closely examined. You might not have the equipment to see deep through these ventilation and HVAC systems as our team can, but there are multiple reasons why cleaning out the ducts can improve the way your business operates.

One of the reasons that you might consider HVAC and duct cleaning for your Burnsville office is the health of the employees who work for you. With so much dust, pollen, mold spores, and potential germs floating around through these networks forced into circulation by the air conditioning or heater, more employees get sick or have allergy concerns all throughout the year which can force them to miss work or do their job half-heartedly. The psychological effect of looking out for your employees has been proven with many clinical studies, that production increases with the sense that management cares about their well-being.

Another reason that you might consider choosing SERVPRO to clean the ducts of your building is the efficiency of the HVAC system. The more build-up that occurs within the ducts, the harder this system has to work to provide the comfortable environment that you and the employees get used to experiencing. With clean ductwork, the system runs as it was intended to, allowing for lower heating/cooling costs and less maintenance and repairs to these vital systems over time.

Moreover, our SERVPRO technicians make it easy for you to get this done, without having to miss a beat of your work day to do it. Our high powered vacuums seal tightly over ventilation openings, allowing for these networks to get cleaned without the dust and debris clouding up the room. We have cameras capable of viewing the interior of ductwork for detecting unwanted buildups or blockages. Our team can work quickly to ensure that the problem you experience does not persist and that your production within the office does not suffer.

With the simplicity of getting the duct and HVAC system cleaned, you might later question why you did not think to do it sooner. If this is something that you feel like your office building could benefit from, contact our office for a free inspection and consultation at SERVPRO of Burnsville / Lakeville today at (952) 846-4400.

Inadequate Backflow Prevention Measures Could Cause Water Damage In Your Farmington Residence

Water Damage Inadequate Backflow Prevention Measures Could Cause Water Damage In Your Farmington Residence Backflow Regulators Can Prevent Water Damage to Farmington Properties--SERVPRO Tip

SERVPRO Can Extract Water and Usually Restore Your Home to Its Pre-loss Condition "Like it never even happened."

While you might be aware that you appliances could create damaging disasters in your Farmington residence, you might not be aware that some of these occurrences do not get attributed to age or general malfunction. Sometimes there are circumstances which cause unforeseen pressure to the appliances themselves, forcing them to rupture or break at their weakest components along the water supply line.
 
Backflow preventers might be commonplace in the construction of homes, but this does not guarantee that your home has one or that it functions as it should. These devices keep pressure from outside sources from finding their way into the service line supplying your house and rupturing your plumbing. Without warning, an influx of pressure (often attributed to events like main line breaks and the demand from a fire hydrant elsewhere on the line) causes a sharp difference between supply and demand, forcing highly pressurized backflow into your Farmington home and causing water damage.
 
Our SERVPRO professionals can quickly determine the full extent of this damage, and shut off the supply of water coming into your home that has ruptured weak points in water-fed appliances like your water heater or washing machine. The next step is to address the best methods of cleaning up the mess and restoring the damage. This process begins with extraction if the water damage is severe enough to warrant the use of pumps and wet-vacs.
 
Drying is the next step to follow the extraction, and this process typically utilizes both industrial strength air movers and dehumidification equipment. These tools pull moisture from the environment and affected surfaces, ideally to restore the damage that exists and to prevent worse conditions like mold growth. Structural damage can get assessed at this point by our SERVPRO technicians to determine if portions of these materials require replacement.
 
Water damage does not have to be a dramatic event for your house, but it can leave you wondering how to fix the damage and get things back to the way they used to be. When situations are out of your control, like a backflow incident on your waterline, damage can mount up in a hurry.

Trust SERVPRO of Burnsville / Lakeville to help you clean up the mess and restore your home. Give us a call anytime you need us at (952) 846-4400.

Spring Flood Damage in Your Farmington Home

4/6/2018 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Spring Flood Damage in Your Farmington Home Hardwood floors expand when they absorb extra moisture which can cause warping, buckling, cupping and crowning.

SERVPRO Can Help to Save Your Hardwood Floors after Flood Damage

Most people look forward to the end of winter in Farmington and the warmer weather that follows. We must, of course, remember that along with spring rainstorms, melting snow, and warm sunshine, there is an increased threat of flooding. It is all part of spring in the Midwest. Damage from flooding in the spring can be costly and extensive for you as a homeowner. If you have lived here for a while, you are probably aware of any flooding dangers that are possible.

These things sometimes, unfortunately, take you by surprise, and then your Farmington home is underwater. If this happens to you, the flood damage that occurs can be quite overwhelming, but it is not the time to hesitate. The water needs to be cleaned up as soon as possible to prevent even more damage, and to do this you need professional help. Our staff at SERVPRO are trained and experienced in flood damage, and we can help you anytime you need.

We do not hesitate to get to your home once you contact us. SERVPRO IICRC certified technicians are trained to know the moisture effects on different materials and how to dry them properly, including your wood flooring. Permanence and exposure time are two of the major variables that determine how much damage is done to affected materials. Permeance refers to how quickly water vapor goes through a material, and exposure time refers to how long material was in contact with the water.

Wood naturally contains moisture but expands when it absorbs extra moisture. The boards can warp and expanded boards can push against one another. Buckling at the joints where the boards meet or at the walls can occur because of this. How much buckling happens depends on how much moisture is absorbed and what kind of wood it is. Warping and buckling can be permanent after the wood finishes drying. Floors have to be replaced if the right drying and refinishing cannot get rid of the damage.

Cupping and crowning can also occur. Cupping happens when the water is absorbed from the sides and bottom of the wood. The edges slightly raise or cup. Many times, it can be sanded out. Crowning happens when the top of the wood holds more moisture than the bottom and sides. It can make the wood arch, making a bowed shape in the middle. It usually happens with the bottom of the wood is over-dried.

SERVPRO of Burnsville / Lakeville knows how to handle your wood flooring in your home in Argonne, Orchard Garden, or Deer Park. Giving us a call at (952) 846-4400 as soon as the flood damage has happened is the best thing to do to prevent additional damage.

The Advantages of Duct Cleaning for Your Burnsville Business

3/26/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial The Advantages of Duct Cleaning for Your Burnsville Business Duct cleaning is important for every business in order tl have good air quality and help keep your monthly utility costs down.

SERVPRO Can Clean Your Business’s Ductwork and Help You Maintain a Cleaner Environment

Your Burnsville business operates at its best when the climate inside of the facility is controlled and regulated. These adjustments might mean forced air throughout the winter months and air conditioning throughout the hotter months of the year. While this is a staple of any business out there, it is often one of the most overlooked features of your building regarding cleanliness and upkeep.

While indoor air quality might not top your priority list for considerations to improve production and morale around the office, duct cleaning at your Burnsville business is something that can assuredly keep people healthier and help to keep your utility costs much lower. Fortunately, even though this process requires specialized equipment and professional expertise, you can achieve this result with the help of our experienced SERVPRO team.

Our IICRC certified technicians begin the process by assessing the full scope of the build-up and debris that gets trapped in your ductwork. Enclosed high powered vacuums fit over the top of vent openings and pull out this dust and sediment from inside and neatly collects it in a receptacle. The primary benefit to this enclosed approach is that your business does not have to get put on hold for the cleaning to take place.

With less dust and debris being pushed around by the circulating air, the less that your employees are breathing in and getting sick. You might notice that everyone can breathe a little bit easier once the duct cleaning has taken place, as you might not have realized just how much dirt was circulating from the ducts.

Cleaning out these air pathways ultimately makes your appliances not have to work as hard to supply your building with cold or warm air. This benefit is two-fold. You can keep your monthly utility costs lower than they have been from the lack of added power required to work around partially clogged ducts and secondly, your appliances like the air conditioner and furnace do not have the added wear and tear associated with the higher workload, thereby lasting longer.

Duct cleaning is something that every business should consider to help keep their employees healthier and their overhead costs to a minimum. Reach out to SERVPRO of Burnsville / Lakeville for professional cleaning of your ductwork today. We can be reached anytime at (952) 846-4400.

Mold Remediation is Important for Your Lakeville Residence

3/14/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Mold Remediation is Important for Your Lakeville Residence SERVPRO not only remediates the damage caused by mold, but also locates the source of the problem to prevent future mold growth.

Allow SERVPRO to Remediate Mold Damage in Your Home

Fungal growth is something that a lot of Lakeville homeowners do not fully understand. While there is no denying that it is believed to cause health effects, mold in your home is not as uncommon as you might think. In fact, there are minimal requirements to allow naturally occurring mold spores to seat and begin forming colonies in specific areas of your home. Combatting these conditions can help you to keep these types of growths from happening, but if they have permission to continue unabated for any length of time, you could have all the makings for widespread fungal colonization.

People attribute mold growth in their Lakeville home to an unclean atmosphere or severe conditions, but in all actuality, spores in the air we breathe only require warmer temperatures and present moisture to seat and thrive. Combatting its presence alone is rarely advisable, especially when you consider that conventional cleaning methods rarely penetrate deeply enough to remove the entire fungal organism and merely allow it to continue unseen.

Our SERVPRO remediation specialists get trained to the high standards set in place by the IICRC. This training ensures that each of our technicians gets equipped with the latest information about various types of mold, and the most efficient methods to remediate their presence and restore the damage that they cause. Through a combined effort of equipment and expertise, our dedicated team can handle any sized mold damage situation that you might face.

Locating the source of the present moisture in the affected area not only gives our SERVPRO professionals an understanding of where the damage originates from but also how to prevent a similar occurrence from repeating. With instances like leaky walls in the basement area of your home, something as simple as a thin coat of hydraulic cement can entirely eradicate the moisture from returning once dehumidification equipment has gotten used.

Understanding that mold damage is a fairly common occurrence in homes all throughout the area does not usually make it easier to face. However, trusting our SERVPRO of Burnsville / Lakeville team to help you take back your house from these unwelcomed disasters can ensure that the process is efficient and professionally done. Call our remediation specialists today at (952) 846-4400.
