Advanced Technology

3/30/2022 (Permalink)

The restoration industry has seen significant technological advancements over the years. Our technicians here at SERVPRO have taken full advantage of these advancements through the utilization of the various advanced technologies. In today's blog, we will cover three of our team's favorite advanced technologies that are used to facilitate moisture detection, drying, and sanitation. Read more to learn about infrared cameras, air movers and dehumidifiers, and OSHA-approved cleaning agents!

How do we detect moisture?

Infrared Cameras!

In the event of a water emergency, the first step is to detect water damage, measure the extent of the water damage, and monitor the moisture levels in the affected area(s). Water damage investigation has come a long way! We used advanced technologies, such as infrared cameras, to help expedite the process of detecting water damage. By speeding this up, we can save you from secondary water damage by identifying the location of moisture that is often unseen by the naked eye. Infrared cameras are used to scan locations of moisture inside of flooring, ceilings, and walls that must be extracted to prevent secondary water damage and microbial growth. We don't stop at infrared cameras though! We use hygrometers and sensitive motor detectors that help us measure the saturation level of the moisture.

What do we use for drying?

Air Movers and Dehumidifiers!

After water damage has been identified, it is essential to extract the water immediately! Once any standing water has been extracted, affected area(s) must be thoroughly dried in order to prevent secondary damage and mold. Our technicians facilitate this process by using air movers and dehumidifiers during a water damage emergency. Air movers work to quickly evaporate moisture and dehumidifiers extract water vapor lingering in the air. When used in tandem, our industrial strength air movers and powerful dehumidifiers can protect your property's flooring, walls, and furniture from warping and swelling.

How do we sanitize?

OSHA-Approved Cleaning Agents!

Once the affected areas have been extracted of water and dried completely, the water damaged areas should be cleaned and sanitized. This sanitization process completely eliminates odors and contaminants that could lead to issues in the future. Here at SERVPRO we utilize two different types of cleaning agents: disinfectants and deodorizers. Our disinfection cleaning agents work to prevent the growth of dangerous microbials including mildew, fungi, and other types of bacteria. With the help of our deodorization agents, odors that result from excess moisture are eradicated!

First Golf Event in Over a Year!

Aimee, Tierney, and Scott at the IREM tournament Aimee, Tierney, and Scott at their booth in Mendota Heights.

Last week Scott (Owner), Aimee (Director of Client Services), and Tierney (Marketing Specialist) hosted a booth at the IREM Minnesota Chapter Golf Tournament!

What a day it was! With a heat advisory for 4 straight days and not a single cloud in the sky, Aimee, Scott, and Tierney took on a long day in the heat.

Our infamous "What the Duck?!" game was a hit. The goal of the game was to avoid the only duck without a number, which we called the Ugly Duckling. If you successfully grabbed a 1, 2, or 3, you were entered into a raffle for lunch for your office, a $100 Visa gift card, or both!

Community involvement is one of our passions and it has been way too long since we were able to go out and about with familiar faces. Despite the last year, everyone was in high spirits to converse and get back into the swing of things.

Being involved with an association like IREM reminds us of the importance of making a difference in the careers of those who manage and are being managed. Through professional development events and collaboration with various business, IREM sets the stage for opening doors, forging connections, and showing the way forward.

SERVPRO of Shakopee/Savage/Prior Lake offers both credit and non-credit courses for insurance agents, insurance adjusters, and Real Estate professionals. Our offered Continuing Education (CE) Courses provide you and your employees with information that will allow you to better service your customers.

These programs are designed to improve the knowledge of your staff regarding emergency mitigation. Our franchise has held Continuing Education Courses on various topics including:

  • Biohazard Cleanup
  • Understanding Mold in the Restoration Industry
  • Restorative Drying for Water Damage
  • Mitigation Awareness Response Seminars
  • The Hazards of Hoarding

Our upcoming CE Course will be on Wednesday, May 26th at the Chaska Event Center.

"An Examination of Ethics in the Insurance Industry"

The premise for this ethics course is that although we may have solid ethical foundations and usually make rational ethical decisions, ethical lapses are likely to come when we are stressed, angry, upset, worried, or otherwise disengaged. Each and every day we are faced with decisions that could cause harm to others or ourselves. Facing ethical decisions can be very difficult, especially when we make decisions that may seem correct at first, but we later find out were not so great. As we explore what "Ethics" is, you will be challenged to become involved in group activities. The group activities will help reinforce what has been learned, as well as increase your ability to better deal with ethical decision-making in your own life.

Here to Help with Flood Damage in your Home

5/10/2021 (Permalink)

Coon Rapids services We make it "Like it never even happened."

Flooding often happens in Minneapolis when the snow melts in the spring, and there is excess precipitation added to the already-saturated ground.  Dealing with the restoration process after flood damage is an overwhelming challenge. Having the help of trained, competent professionals can make the process so much more comfortable from the actual restoration process itself to understanding how to best deal with insurance companies.

Offering Our Expert Advice


If you have flood damage in your home, SERVPRO is available to assist you every step of the way until your property is back to its preloss condition. We understand that time is of the essence and respond quickly to your emergency call. Our skilled technicians are available twenty-four hours a day, every single day of the year. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.

Making a Plan


SERVPRO technicians create a customized plan for the restoration of your home. We use the training learned in SERVPRO's Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to tackle each unique situation, understanding when and how to use moisture detectors and hygrometers to measure moisture content. We also decide if the damage requires controlled demolition techniques such as flood cuts to release trapped water. During each step of the process, our project managers use their advanced training and professional expertise to recover from flood damage effectively.

Aside from creating a customized plan, SERVPRO technicians use specialized equipment and cleaning agents to remove floodwater and disinfect after black water exposure, possibly containing disease-causing microorganisms and potentially dangerous chemical contaminants. When needed, we use submersible pumps to eliminate deep water and extraction tools for remaining moisture, either truck-mounted or in portable wand form. We then use high-velocity air movers to blow warm air over moist surfaces and industrial-strength dehumidifiers to draw moisture out of the air.

SERVPRO has specially formulated cleaners containing chlorine or alcohol that attack dangerous microbes to ensure the safety and health of everyone in your home. SERVPRO technicians are qualified professionals, ready to create a plan for restoration and execute that plan using knowledge, specialized equipment, and high-quality cleaning products. We make it, “Like it never even happened.”

mold growth in Shakopee home Having mold in your home or business can be an alarming situation

There's nothing that will make your heart drop quite like finding a patch of black mold within your Shakopee, Savage, or Prior Lake home. Mold cleanup does not have to be stressful, however. The easiest and most reliable method of mold remediation relies on the knowledge and equipment of experts, like our certified technicians here a SERVPRO. 

Professionals Follow the Standard Steps

  1. Find the moisture source. Mold is a clear sign that your property is having moisture issues and current/past water damage. A roof leak or condensation buildup may be the criminal at hand. Finding and fixing the moisture is essential; if you cannot stop the moisture you cannot stop the mold.
  2. Wear personal protective equipment (PPE). Mold can not only break down the integrity of your structure, but it can be a hazard. It is recommended that professionals often put on masks, gloves, and goggles before working with the mold.
  3. Remove porous materials. Porous materials such as drywall and carpets will have to be discarded if they are affected my moisture and mold.
  4. Clean and disinfect the non-porous objects. Professionals will use an EPA and CDC certified blend of cleaning supplies to clean the hard surfaces. Once they are disinfected, the cleaning should remove all spores.
  5. Dry out the effected area. As we stated before, moisture is a catalyst for mold. The entire area should be properly dried so that there is no risk of another mold incidence. Depending on the severity, the certified technicians may bring in air movers and dehumidifiers to expedite the process.

SERVPRO of Shakopee/Savage/Prior Lake is more than equipped to handle any mold remediation and rebuild needs that you may haveCall 952-403-1050 if you suspect to have moisture or mold within the confines of your property.

Let us help you get back to business

As our communities re-open, we’re all moving back toward a new kind of normal. The expectations of visitors, customers, and employees who come into our establishments have evolved, and staying safe and well is a top concern. The global COVID-19 pandemic has changed what it means to be clean, and we’ve developed a program to help your business meet the new higher standard of clean that is now expected.

Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned is a defensive cleaning program we’re offering to businesses and commercial locations to address the current COVID-19 pandemic. This proactive viral pathogen cleaning program goes well beyond janitorial or carpet cleaning. By choosing Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned, you, your employees, your customers, and your community can rest assured that you’ve selected a higher cleaning standard – you are Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned.

Extensive training and specialized products

As the #1 choice in cleanup and restoration*, we stand on more than 50 years of experience and expertise to help your business become Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned.  Beyond fire & water, SERVPRO professionals are trained and experienced in biohazard decontamination and chemical spills – always adhering to the cleaning and decontamination standards set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local authorities. 

From formulating and creating our proprietary cleaning products, like SERVPROXIDE, at our headquarters in Gallatin, TN, to taking the utmost care while disinfecting, we will ensure you and your business are set up to inspire consumer confidence as the economy continues to reopen.

3 C’s – Consult, Clean, and Certify

When the stakes are this high, you want a partner who has developed an industry leading, proprietary training program, cleaning solutions, and remediation processes over decades. We’ve cleaned up some of the most challenging biohazards imaginable. Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned reflects our unique experiences and capabilities. The program is grounded with our unique 3 C’s: Consult, Clean, and Certify.

  • Consult – Every business is different, which is why you’ll be assigned a Cleaning Protocol Consultant who understands your business and will create a cleaning program to meet your specific needs. This program will be developed based on your business type, size of space, amount of high frequency touchpoints, foot traffic and congestion points.
  • Clean – Based on your specific business needs, your location will undergo a thorough, deep clean, using exclusive cleaning products, according to protocols set forth by the CDC. Our employees have years of experience, and we will go beyond the scope of work that regular janitorial staff perform. Cleanup procedures generally include cleaning of porous and non-porous surfaces, disinfecting of non-porous surfaces, cleaning and disinfecting of equipment, tools, and/or supplies used for cleanup process, and disposal of hazardous materials.  In the event of a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 event, we will be there cleaning within 24 hours to ensure you get back to business as quickly as possible. 
  • Certify - Once your business location has been Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned, you will gain access to proprietary signage, digital emblems, and other collateral that communicates that you’ve selected a higher standard of clean available to help protect your employees and customers. And because we add the day, month, and year to that proprietary stamp of clean, your guests will know that not only did you choose Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned, but that your location is being cleaned regularly at this standard.
