At SERVPRO of Moorhead we offer a service called an Emergency Ready Profile, or ERP. An ERP is a plan that we work with you to create in case of an emergency. Whether it be fire damage, broken pipes or tornado damage, we know how to prepare for it all. 

As many as 50% of businesses may never recover after a disaster strikes, according to industry research. Most businesses that do survive, had a strategic plan put in place prior to the disaster. Pre-planning will save you headaches down the road, and could potentially save your business. The SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile is available to businesses at no cost. It will take little time to complete and will not take you away from other projects.

Ensure the safety of your business and create an ERP today! Contact your local SERVPRO Sales and Marketing Representative at (218) 236-7447.

Recent Mold Outbreak in Moorhead Home?

5/24/2022 (Permalink)

Mold is visible on the ceiling of a home. We mitigate and restore mold damage in Clay County!

Mold damage often involves the removal of walls and floors to rid the structure of the infestation. Our local team in Moorhead can provide all of the services necessary to bring your home to pre-mold conditions. Once we have assessed the damage, we will:

 Mold Containment

We may use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process.

Air Filtration

We utilize powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mold spores while mold remediation is in process.

Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials

We use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Removing and disposing of mold-infested porous materials may be necessary to remediate heavy mold growth.

Cleaning Contents

We clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, and other restorable items affected by mold. We’re also trained to remove odors and deodorization using fogging equipment.

Restoration

Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet, or may require the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.

Franchise 500 #1 in Category Badge #1 in Restoration Services!

SERVPRO of Moorhead is proud to announce that SERVPRO has been recognized again as one of the best overall franchise opportunities by Entrepreneur magazine’s 2022 Franchise 500, the industry’s most comprehensive franchise ranking. Evaluated on categories such as growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power, SERVPRO was named the #8 overall franchise system, and #1 in the cleaning and restoration industry for the 19th consecutive year.

“SERVPRO is built on the foundation of outstanding customer service, industry-leading training and the success of following a proven system,” said SERVPRO CEO Rick Isaacson. “On behalf of the more than 1,900 SERVPRO franchises across the U.S. and Canada, we are honored by this recognition. 

“The SERVPRO brand and its franchisees share a strong partnership, working together to set and achieve goals which have allowed us to grow each year for more than half a century despite the challenges many businesses have faced, especially over the past 18-24 months.”

“The past year has been one of the most challenging for businesses in recent memory, which made putting together our 43rd annual Franchise 500 list more enlightening than ever,” said Entrepreneur Editor in Chief Jason Feifer. “The companies named to this year’s list showed us how being resilient, supportive and nimble can help navigate extraordinary challenges and also underscore the grit and innovation that define entrepreneurship.”

SERVPRO franchise owners pride themselves on being “ready for whatever happens,” Isaacson said, which helped the company jump two spots from its #10 ranking in 2021.

“Our franchisees have a ‘never say no’ mentality, working together with other owners to make sure we are able to satisfy all of our customers’ and clients’ cleanup, remediation and restoration needs, which allows us to ‘Keep it Green,’ as we like to say.

“We pride ourselves on rushing in when others are running out – whether that is in response to a natural disaster such as a hurricane, flood or tornado; cleaning up after a home or business water or fire loss; or helping clean and sanitize spaces from unseen threats like COVID-19. Maintaining our position for nearly 20 years as the best franchise in our category on the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 list validates our long-standing strategy for growing our brand: invest in franchisee training and support and commit resources to continually improving our infrastructure.”

Mold Infestation in Moorhead?

1/25/2022 (Permalink)

Mold is growing on a wall. We mitigate and remediate mold damage in Clay County.

When you find mold in your home or commercial business, it is often an indication of water damage. SERVPRO® of Moorhead’s technicians use advanced technology to locate the source of the water damage and will address the problem to discourage the mold from returning after the mitigation and remediation process has been completed. Here are some facts from our website about 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 allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed to ensure the mold does not 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 45 percent.

Skunk Odor Issue in Dilworth Business?

10/25/2021 (Permalink)

A striped skunk is shown. We specialize in removing foul odors in Clay County.

There is nothing more off-putting than the smell of a skunk. Skunks’ reputation precedes them, and their ability to spray their awful scent is their only defense mechanism. Other animals know to give skunks a wide berth to avoid getting sprayed. Domestic pets, unfortunately, learn the hard way about skunks. When your pet gets sprayed and enters the house, the skunk odor will spread and permeate into clothing, upholstery, drapes, and carpeting. Yuk!

SERVPRO® of Moorhead’s technicians are trained and certified in odor removal by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), the nonprofit certifying body for the cleaning and restoration industry. Skunk and other offensive odors are natural turn-offs, so it is vital to determine the source of the odor and take immediate steps to neutralize and remove the nasty smell.

We have the training and equipment to identify odors from inside and outside a structure and determine the conditions where it comes into contact with surfaces. While other companies may use chemicals to “mask” offensive odors, our technicians have access to several odor removal products capable of penetrating surfaces to neutralize any unpleasant smell.

Call Us Today!

When your Moorhead home or commercial business needs odor removal services, SERVPRO® of Moorhead is Here to Help. ® Call us today at 218-236-7447. We’ll eliminate your offensive odor, “Like it never even happened.”

The best call I ever made.

When my store was vandalized, I was devastated. I got a call in the middle of the night telling me my store alarm was going off. I arrived to find my storefront windows broken and my shop is a mess. It looked like a tornado had gone off inside the store. After the police left, I had to secure the property and clean up the debris. My insurance adjuster told me to call SERVPRO® of Moorhead. It was the best call I ever made!

The SERVPRO team arrived quickly and boarded up the storefront windows, and immediately began the cleanup and restoration process. They worked systematically through the store, cleaning up the glass and debris. They helped me to upright my shop display racks and helped me gather merchandise from the floor. They cleaned, sanitized, and deodorized the shop and returned later the next day to replace the broken windows. Now, you would never know my store had been vandalized!

Sewage Backup in Barnesville?

7/28/2021 (Permalink)

A toilet in a clean bathroom is shown. We respond to sewage backup 24-hours a day in Clay County.

Did you know there are three classifications for contaminated water? Sewage backups are classified as “black water.”  SERVPRO® of Moorhead responds to sewage backups 24-hours a day in Barnesville. Here is some information on contaminated water from our website:

Category 3: "Black Water"

Category 3 “Black Water” is grossly unsanitary and can cause severe illness or death if ingested. Any contact should be avoided. Sources for black water 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.

Category 2: "Gray Water"

This water has a significant level of contamination that could cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Sources for category 2 water may include washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow.

Category 1: "Clean Water"

This is water from a clean source, such as a broken clean water supply line or faucet. If left untreated, category 1 water can quickly degrade into category 2 or 3 water depending upon such factors as time, temperature, and contact with contaminants.

Graffiti Defacing Convenience Store in Downer?

2/22/2021 (Permalink)

Pink and black spray-painted graffiti mar the wall of a local business. We provide many specialty-cleaning services in Moorhead.

The Writing is on the Wall in Downer

According to a study done by the United States Justice Department, there are high costs associated with cleanup and prevention, and few graffiti offenders are apprehended. And the initial appearance of graffiti in one location appears to attract more graffiti. Graffiti damage also represents a huge public cost, with an estimated $12 billion per year spent on graffiti mitigation in the United States. Graffiti also dissuades customers from entering stores, riding on public transit, and contributes to declines in property value, presenting the appearance of blight.

Fast response time is critical when mitigating graffiti damage as the longer the writing is left on the walls, the higher the eventuality that more graffiti will appear. SERVPRO® of Moorhead’s restoration technicians are trained to remove vandalism from homes and commercial businesses quickly and safely from:

  • Spray-painted graffiti on exterior walls
  • Driveways
  • Sidewalks and walkways
  • Asphalt
  • Metals
  • Wood
  • Glass
  • Plastic
  • Masonry

Tips to Stay Safe During a Storm in Moorhead

12/17/2020 (Permalink)

image with different property disasters SERVPRO of Moorhead is ready 24 hours a day. 7 days a week to respond.

Floods in Moorhead:

Floods are the most common natural disaster in the U.S.  Flooding can happen near major bodies of water, but also inland. 

Floods can develop slowly or quickly. Floods that come with no warning are known as flash floods.

Floods:

  • Come from rain, snow, hurricanes, tornadoes, and storm surges
  • Overflows of dams or other water systems
  • Can cause power or water outages
  • Damage buildings
  • Create landslides
  • Make roads impassable
  • Sweep away people, animals, or cars

If you are in a flood in Moorhead:

  • If you have a warning, get to a safe place
  • Don’t drive around barricades 
  • Don’t walk, swim, or drive through flood waters.  SERVPRO of Moorhead likes the warning, “Turn around! Don’t Drown!”
  • 6 inches of moving water can knock a person down. 12 inches of moving water can sweep a car away
  • Stay off bridges over fast-moving water. The water can wash bridges away
  • If your car is trapped in quickly-moving water, stay inside. If the water rises inside the vehicle, climb onto the roof
  • If you are trapped in a building, go to the highest level. Do NOT climb into a closed attic. Floodwater can trap you. Go to the roof only if there is no other escape

Odor Removal in Glyndon?

The nose of a large dog can be seen poking through a fence. We have the training and equipment to remove any offensive odor in Moorhead.

Dog Gone Blues

My dog Rocky gets bored easily, but he manages to keep himself entertained most of the time. However, today I was not amused when I came home from grocery shopping in Glyndon, and my house looked like a crime scene. Rocky managed to tip over the garbage pail and scatter the entire contents all over my kitchen and living room. There were chewed bits of paper, dog-teeth-dented soup cans, mauled take-out containers, and lots of other detritus too chewed up to identify. Not only did the house reek, but Rocky also reeked, so he went outside while I called SERVPRO® of Moorhead. They sent out a team of odor restoration technicians, and they went to work immediately.

They were able to locate the odors and used products specific to each different scent they identified. They removed all the garbage and cleaned and deodorized all of the surfaces. When they were through, you would never know that there had been a stinky mess in my house! Rocky had to stay outside until he could get a bath, but hopefully, he learned his lesson.

I was amazed by how quickly they responded, and I watched as one team member spoke with the first responders and my neighbor, while the rest of the team immediately began the cleanup and restoration process. In less than two hours they had tarped the fire-damaged roof, boarded up the broken side window, removed the contents of the garage, extracted the water left from the firefighters, and cleaned up the soot and smoke! The next day they repaired the minor structural damage, and when they were done, you couldn’t tell a fire had ever happened!

Our team of highly trained restoration technicians is on call 24 hours a day, every day. We know that repairs can become more expensive if left too long before mitigating the damage.
