Storm Damage Cleanup in Shakopee, Savage, and Prior Lake

11/30/2020 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Potential You May Not Have Considered 

Massive storms are a danger all over the Midwest, and when they tear through places like Shakopee, Prior Lake, and Savage, they can leave sheer devastation behind. Most people worry about flood and water damage from storms, but there are other kinds of damage that you may not realize are common. Check out some types of storm damage you may not have considered and learn how a Prior Lake and Shakopee storm damage cleanup and restoration service can help. 

Flood and Water Damage

Flood and water damage are the obvious concern after a severe storm. Storms bring driving rain and can cause water levels to rise as well as pipes to burst. The right storm damage and cleanup service can come in, remove standing water and dry out your space with industrial-strength pumps and air movers so that your place is dry as a bone once more. 

Mold Damage

Moisture can cause terrible damage to your structure, but along with moisture comes mold. Mold remediation requires specialized, expert touches to take care of the visible patches and control the clouds of spores on which it travels. 

Fire Damage

Few people consider the harm that can be caused when a lightning strike or broken wire from powerful wind results in a fire. When this happens, you need a service that can clean up the soot, smoke and structural damage and rebuild your home or business back to the way it was. 

Call SERVPRO

When you've suffered water, mold, fire or wind damage in the Prior Lake, Shakopee or Savage area, call SERVPRO at 952-403-1050. We're the locally owned and operated company with expert service to get you on your feet again.

Basement Flooding Shakopee

11/12/2020 (Permalink)

Reasons Your Basement Might Be Flooding

If you suffer flooding damage in your basement in Shakopee or nearby areas like Savage, Prior Lake or other areas of Minnesota, it's vital to get help. The right professionals can identify the reason for the damage and make sure it doesn't happen again. Let's check out some reasons your basement might be flooding and where you can find help.

Reasons for Water Damage in Basements

Water damage can occur in basements for a number of reasons. Two of the most common include sump pump failure and seepage caused by such issues as a poor foundation or backed-up sewage or floor drains. Let's break these down further.

Failing Sump Pump

People count on their sump pumps to keep their basement dry by getting rid of water that would otherwise flood it. Unfortunately, there are several reasons your pump might fail. When you lose electricity during a storm, an electric pump certainly won't work, for example. Also, old equipment breaks down and gets overworked, which can lead to flooding.

Drain and Sewage Backup

If your basement floor drain gets clogged or backs up with sewage or runoff, it can cause major issues that can even threaten your health. It's vital to get these issues fixed because they can result in major structural damage to your home.

Foundation Problems

Old foundations can become porous and allow water to seep through. They can also develop cracks that let water access your basement. Poor foundation issues can also endanger your home and should be fixed immediately.

If you're experiencing flooding or moisture in your basement, call SERVPRO Shakopee for help. We can identify and address the problem to get you dry and safe once more. Call us 24/7 at 952-403-1050 for help.

Mold Hiding in Your Home

Mold is a fungus that can grow in your home or business and can be have adverse effects on your health. Molds need moisture in order to grow so the first step to removing mold from your home is to find the source of moisture and dry it. Having a well functioning HVAC system also helps control the amount of mold spores within the air of your home. Once moisture is taken care of removal of the mold via anti-microbial spray eliminates the mold growth; however affected areas can require removal of flooring or drywall in order to gain access to the source of the growth and better guarantee its elimination from your home. If you or someone you know thinks they might have mold growth in their home or business give us here at SERVPRO of Scott County/Chaska a call today (952)-403-1050 we can come in, test and do removal of any mold issues you may have.
