When your business needs emergency assistance with a sewer backup, SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie is available 24 hours a day.  Our technicians are trained and certified to clean and restore areas affected by sewage backups.

There are three types of contaminated water. Each type requires a different response to restore your business safely:

Category 1: “Clean Water”

  • Water from a clean source like a broken water line
  • If left untreated, it can degrade into a category two or three

Category 2: “Gray Water”

  • May contain bacteria and viruses
  • 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.

  • May contain untreated sewage, harsh chemicals, and microbes
  • Water from flooding rivers or sewer backup

Know the Difference between a flood watch and a flood warning.

A flood/flash flood WATCH means a flood or flash flood is possible.

A flood/flash flood WARNING means flooding or flash flooding is already occurring or will occur soon.

Here are a few tips from to know about how to stay safe during a flood:

  • Find safe shelter right away.
  • Do not walk, swim, or drive through floodwaters.
  • Remember, just six inches of moving water can knock you down, and one foot of moving water can sweep your vehicle away.
  • Stay off bridges over fast-moving water.
  • Depending on the type of flooding:
    • Evacuate if told to do so.
    • Move to higher ground or a higher floor.
    • Stay where you are.

Let SERVPRO clean your Drapes & Blinds

White drapes with a SERVPRO logo in the middle. SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie can clean your drapes and blinds.

SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie excels at cleaning fine fabrics and intricate pieces using wet or dry cleaning methods as required.  We carefully inspect and test fabrics to determine which of our System’s five cleaning methods is best suited to your fabrics.  We use state-of-the-art equipment designed specifically for cleaning fine fabrics.

When Should My Drapes Be Cleaned?

A good rule-of-thumb is to clean drapes approximately every two years.  A recent survey by SERVPRO disclosed that the average customer believes drapes should be cleaned when they look dirty.  Depending on your heating system, the amount of dust in the home, and other factors, drapes may not show soil for two to six years.  The oily atmospheric soil will gradually cause the fabric to deteriorate.  Often, direct sunlight is unjustly blamed for this.  You may triple the life of your draperies through professional cleaning, which is relatively inexpensive compared to replacement costs.

If you your drapes or blinds cleaned, please call SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie at 952-563-1532.

A Small Leak Can Make a Big Mess

A leaky ice maker, a broken supply line to the washing machine, or a sink backup that overflows on the bathroom floor.  These are just some of the many causes of water damage that can happen in your home.  The following are a few tips from the Insurance Information Institute to maintain your indoor plumbing systems:

  • Inspect appliance hoses and faucets.  Make it a practice every year to check hoses leading to water heaters, dishwashers, washing machines and refrigerator ice makers.  You may also want to invest in a water leak monitoring and shut-off system that can alert you to any leakage issues.  Immediately replace any hoses that have cracks or leaks.
  • Inspect showers and tubs.  Check the seal and caulking around showers and tubs to make sure they are watertight and reseal if necessary.
  • When away on vacation, shut off the water supply to the washing machine and never leave the house while the washer or dishwasher is running.
  • Know the location of the main water shut-off valve in your home.  A damaged hose or a burst pipe can send water racing into your home.  Being able to locate and shut off the main water supply quickly will save stress, money and time.
  • Install an emergency pressure release valve in your plumbing system.  This will protect against the increased pressure caused by freezing pipes and can help prevent your pipes from bursting.
  • Check plumbing and heating pipes.  Look closely for cracks and leaks and have any necessary repairs made immediately.

SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie has highly trained technicians that are available 24 hours a day to help with any type of water damage emergency.  Please contact us at 952-563-1532.
