8/29/2022 (Permalink)

Commercial building space Do you have an emergency plan set in place for your commercial property?

Do you have a plan in place in case disaster strikes your commercial building? It is so important to be prepared BEFORE a fire, water, or storm event happens.Without a plan, your costs can skyrocket. Here are a few strategies to avoid future headache:

  • Keep Important Items Above Ground Level

If a disaster event takes place and floods any areas of storage, it can leave a real mess. Make sure to keep important documents, inventory, tools, and electronics above ground level in case of flooding.

  • Backup All Data

Always, always, always backup your data! We live in a digital world and to lose digital data can quickly destroy a business. It is so important to keep your data in a cloud to ensure that you can always recover it. Local computer experts can help you with this if you need.

  • Have an Emergency Ready Plan (ERP) in Place

Nobody plans for damage to their property and it can be difficult to gauge just how much damage may occur. At SERVPRO of Moorhead we encourage all businesses, large or small, to create an ERP. From planning a fire evacuation route to wearing a seatbelt, we are planning for the unexpected everyday. Why not protect your business with a foolproof plan that all employees can follow?

The cover to an underground sewer system is shown. We restore commercial property damage 24-hours a day in Clay County.

Our Moorhead team restores sewer backups 24-hours a day, and we typically arrive within four hours of your call.

Category 1: "Clean Water"

This is water from a clean source, such as a broken clean water supply line or faucet.

  • If left untreated can degrade into a category two or three

Category 2: "Gray Water"

  • It may contain bacteria and viruses
  • It can quickly degrade into category three if left untreated

Category 3: "Black Water"

Sources for category three water could include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.

Smoke Damage in Moorhead Business?

3/16/2022 (Permalink)

Smoke is filling a room. We restore commercial fire damage 24-hours a day in Clay County.

Every smoke odor is not the same, and the smoke odor removal process will vary because every fire uses fuels unique to that fire event. For this reason, SERVPRO® of Moorhead’s technicians may use any of the following methods to remove smoke odor from your building.

  • Air Scrubber or Filter: Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system air scrubber or HEPA air purifier captures larger smoke molecules. There will still be some residual odor from smaller molecules or surface residues.
  • Ozone Generator: An ozone generator is a fast and highly effective smoke odor restoration method. These machines emit ozone, which follows the same paths through the air as smoke and oxidizes any residual traces in the air or on surfaces.
  • Thermal Fogging: An intensive treatment involving fogging machines. After residents evacuate, smoke cleaning professionals fill a structure with petroleum distillates that neutralize odors, and then they ventilate the area.
  • Hydroxyl Generator:These machines rely on ultraviolet light to generate hydroxyl radicals that eliminate smoke odors. It will take about three to five days of continuous operation to achieve the same results as a single ozone treatment.
  • Vapor Modification: This odor elimination method relies on aromatic compounds and a blower or fan to neutralize smoke odor.

Call Us Today!

When your Moorhead commercial business or home has any smoke damage, SERVPRO® of Moorhead has a team of technicians on standby to restore your smoke damage, “Like it never even happened.” Call us today at 218-236-7447.

Mold Problem in Moorhead Business?

5/17/2021 (Permalink)

Mold is shown covering walls below a window. We are trusted leaders in mold mitigation and remediation in Clay County.

Mold in Moorhead?

SERVPRO® of Moorhead has been helping Moorhead businesses mitigate and remediate mold problems for years. Mold can spread quickly to other areas if it is not contained quickly, sometimes in as little as forty-eight hours. Here are some facts for understanding mold from our website:

Understanding Mold

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or air conditioning and heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce health effects.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed, or the mold may return
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth
  • Keep indoor humidity below forty-five percent

Call Us!

When you need help with a mold infestation, SERVPRO® of Moorhead is ready to assist commercial business owners with mold mitigation and remediation services day or night. Call us today at 218-236-7447. We’ll mitigate and remediate your commercial mold damage in Moorhead, “Like it never even happened.”

An overhead fire sprinkler head is shown mounted to a ceiling. We respond to commercial water emergencies 24-hours a day in Clay County.

Making it Rain Inside?

Automatic fire sprinkler systems are effective ways to extinguish a fire.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), in 2014 firefighters responded to over thirty-three thousand unintentional sprinkler activations. Fire or no fire, you can imagine the amount of water that a fire sprinkler system can dump in that short period of time!

Gas Station Fire in Georgetown?

A gas station is shown on a cold snowy winter day. We are commercial fire damage restoration leaders in Moorhead!

Refueling Flash Fire?

According to a report from Purdue University, static electricity can cause flash fires while refueling, causing personal injury and property damage.

Yikes!

SERVPRO® of Moorhead has a team of highly trained commercial fire restoration technicians available to assist Georgetown businesses 24 hours a day. Here are some refueling safety guidelines from Purdue University:

  • Always turn off your vehicle engine while refueling.
  • Stay near the vehicle fueling point during the process.
  • Never smoke, light matches, or use lighters while refueling.
  • Do not get back into your vehicle during refueling. If you must re-enter your vehicle, discharge static electricity buildup when you get out by touching the outside metal portion of your vehicle, away from the filling point, before attempting to remove the nozzle.
  • Use only the hold-open latch provided on the gasoline nozzle.

Call Us!

SERVPRO® of Moorhead has a team of highly trained fire restoration technicians on call and ready to respond to fire damage emergencies in the Georgetown area day and night, and we can typically arrive on-site within four hours of your call.

graphic with mold and mildew words on it SERVPRO of Moorhead is Here To Help.

Mold & Mildew in Moorhead

Although both are types of fungi, SERVPRO of Moorhead wants to point out some differences between mold and mildew.  Some kinds of fungi are okay, like mushrooms (if you like mushrooms). Some kinds of fungi are definitely not okay, like athlete’s foot. Molds can be useful: penicillin, anyone?  Mildew is never useful.

Mold 

  • Usually fuzzy
  • May be brown, yellow, gray, black, white, green, or blue

Mildew

  • Usually grows in a flat pattern
  • May look powdery or downy
  • Powdery mildew usually starts out white, & often turns yellow, brown, or black
  • Downy mildew usually starts out yellow, then turns brown.

What is not good 

Mold 

  • Can cause damage to homes
  • May cause health problems
  • May be smelly

Mildew

  • Can damage plants & crops
  • May cause health problems
  • May be smelly

What is not bad

Mold 

  • Might be edible (grilled portobello tonight?)
  • Some are used in making cheeses

Mildew

  • Not a thing

Mold Problem in Sabin?

A wall is shown covered with a variety of microbial growths and mold. Moorhead residents call us when they need help mitigating mold damage!

Mold and Microbial Growths, Oh My!

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), mold is present in the atmosphere and floats around until the optimum environment is found to thrive. Mold loves any organic material and can grow on just about anything as long as moisture and oxygen are present. Molds can grow on wood, paper, carpet, food, and insulation, and it eats or digests what it is growing on and has even been known to cause structural damage to buildings if not mitigated in time.

SERVPRO® of Moorhead has years of experience mitigating mold and other microbial growths, and has a team of highly trained technicians who are on call 24 hours a day, every day. Here are some common moisture problems identified by the EPA that encourage mold growth:

  • Leaking roofs
  • Leaking or condensing water pipes
  • Leaking fire-protection sprinkler systems
  • Landscaping, gutters and downspouts that direct water into or under a building
  • High humidity (60% relative humidity)
  • Unvented combustion appliances such as clothes dryers vented into a garage. (Clothes dryers and other combustion appliances should be vented to the outside.)

Call Us!

Mold cannot ever be completely eradicated, but it can be controlled, and when you need help, SERVPRO® of Moorhead will mitigate your mold problem in Sabin, “Like it never even happened.” Call us today at 218-236-7447.

Condensation and Mold in Moorhead.

There are many different kinds of mold. EVERY SINGLE ONE needs moisture to grow.

Mold doesn’t need a storm or flood. Even a tiny bit of dampness is enough for mold.

Have you seen condensed water on the inside of a window? Have you noticed water droplets near the shower?  That water is more than enough for mold to start growing.

SERVPRO of Moorhead wants you to know: if you control moisture, you control mold.

Control Moisture:

  • Clean spills or leaks quickly. Mold can start growing within 24 hours
  • Make sure roof gutters are in good shape
  • Don’t let water collect around the house foundation
  • Don’t let water collect in the air-conditioner drip pans
  • Keep drains clear
  • Indoor humidity should be under 40%
  • Wipe condensation from windows, pipes, or walls

SERVPRO of Moorhead offers these suggestions:

  • Use exhaust fans
  • Use air conditioners and/or dehumidifiers. Low humidity reduces condensation
  • Use the bathroom fan when you shower
  • Appliances should vent to the outside. Even stoves, washers and dryers produce water vapor

SERVPRO of Moorhead has ideas on reducing condensation:

  • Increase air movement
    • Open doors & windows
    • Use fans
  • Insulate cold surfaces like water pipes
  • Keep  the temperature comfortable
