Storm Damage Flooding from a Storm: SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie can Repair the Damage Flooding from Storm Damage can be repaired by SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie

Summer rain quickly turned into a storm.  Before long, a golf course was flooded and water rushed into the clubhouse. Water stood two feet high throughout the lower level, which houses employee dormitories, a member lounge, elevator shafts, and the country club wine cellar. Help was needed.

After the storm, SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie was called and went to work. The water was pumped out and unsalvageable items were removed. Mitigation teams cut the wet drywall and began drying the facility. After the property was dried, the rebuild began, with construction teams restoring the property to its original state. New drywall, flooring, and trim was installed. Soon enough, the club was back to normal and the course resumed operations.

Mold in the House: SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie provides mold remediation for your home or office

Mold Remediation Mold in the House: SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie provides mold remediation for your home or office When mold is discovered, SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie will provide an assessment, containment and expert mold remediation

Discovering mold in your home or office can be alarming.  If mold is discovered, you can contact SERVPRO for an assessment before taking any action.  First things first, do not attempt to clean, scrub or disturb mold, as the spores will easily distribute into the air.  If you have fans or an open window nearby blowing in the area, turn it off or eliminate any breezes.  Mold spreads easily and by scrubbing it or allowing wind to reach the affected area, the spores will simply move to another area. 

Removing Mold from the House or Office

Calling a mold remediation expert like SERVPRO will allow for a number of actions to take place. The first thing we do is find the source of the mold.  There may be a leak, a water or moisture source that contributed to the mold growth.  Our trained mold technicians will find the source, eliminate further damage, assess the situation, contain the existing problem and remove the mold.  Also, we will professionally clean the affected areas and contents, as well as provide air filtration and provide any restoration, if needed.

What to do with Mold

If you find mold in the house or office, again, here are a few tips on what to do (and what not to do):

  • Do not touch or scrub mold
  • Turn off any fans or blowing air (HVAC)
  • Do not spray any bleach or chemicals on the mold
  • Do not try to dry the area or use any heaters (you will spread spores)
  • Call SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie

Water in the House: SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie helps when you have water trouble in your home or office

Water Damage Water in the House: SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie helps when you have water trouble in your home or office If you have standing water, flood damage, or other water issues in your home or office, SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie can help.

Water damage is a common occurrence in homes and buildings.  You may experience an event with water from a heavy rain, flooding in the area, a broken sprinkler head, or even from an over-flowing toilet.  Whatever the cause of the water problem, SERVPRO can help.  Water damage is not to be taken lightly, as water can cause damage to flooring, wood trim, drywall and other parts of a structure. When water is standing in a basement, rooms, or even in a bathroom, it seeps into crevices and travels under flooring, trim and baseboards.  If not properly dried, that water can create irreparable damage, even cause mold.  Of course, the amount of water needs to be something beyond a common spill, although even a small, steady leak that is not stopped and dried can create big problems.

When to contact SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie for water damage repairs and drying:

  • Standing water in the basement
  • Flood water has entered the house or building
  • Visible damage to a window, door or walls, with water pooling in areas
  • Roof damage that has allowed wind driven rain to enter the structure
  • Sewer water or other plumbing backup
  • A long-term leak has been discovered

If there is a question of whether water can be damaging your home or building, SERVPRO professionals are trained at identifying and surveying the damage any water may have created.  Most importantly, we can remove the water and clean, dry, and professionally repair water damage.

After a Fire: Cleaning up after smoke and fire damage in the Edina/Eden Prairie Area

6/12/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage After a Fire: Cleaning up after smoke and fire damage in the Edina/Eden Prairie Area Damaged by a fire, this smoke and soot covered wall was cleaned by the SERVPRO of Edina/Eden Prairie team.

When a fire erupted in a residential apartment building in the Eden Prairie area of Minnesota, the local fire department responded immediately, extinguishing the fire. The fire and smoke damage displaced many families, and created a massive clean-up effort for SERVPRO. 

Fire, Smoke and Soot Damage

The fire burned inside 2 units of a large apartment building, creating heavy structural damage. All told, residents from a total of 12 units were impacted and suddenly without a home. The fire and smoke damage was present throughout nearly all of the units adjacent to where the fire took place. There was also water inside several apartments from the fire department’s response, coupled with smoke smell and soot covering the walkways and stairwells, making the entire building uninhabitable for residents. After this fire took place, SERVPRO was called to assist in the immediate cleanup and mitigation from the fire damaged structure. 

Cleaning Smoke and Soot Damage

The fire created structural damage in two units, but heavy smoke damage and soot covered walls, furniture and personal belongings in many of the adjoining units. Outside of the living areas, the signs of fire were found throughout the building.  Smoke and soot damage covered brick walls up and down staircases.  As part of the cleanup, SERVPRO was called in to clean the charred walls and restore the appearance of the building.  Using a combination of commercial cleaning materials and steam cleaning, SERVPRO crews performed a thorough cleaning of all the damaged segments of the brick walls, removing all traces of the smoke and soot damage, making the brick and the fire damage “Like it never even happened.”
