We Act Fast In Minneapolis To Prevent Further Water Damage
Preparing for Winter Water Damage in Minneapolis
Water Damage Minneapolis
The changing temperatures throughout the year can harm your water pipes, as well as putting added pressure onto your sump pump. It is a good idea to run maintenance checks on appliances before the winter months roll in to ensure your home is prepared for colder weather. Pipes can freeze, causing the water inside to expand, which can be a considerable problem for metal materials. Equally, heavy rainfall may put extra pressure on gutters as well as sump pumps that dispose of water.
You may prepare yourself properly and still end up with water damage in your Minneapolis home. Despite putting in place safeguards, the unfortunate truth is that accidents do happen. When they do, SERVPRO is here to help you get your home back to a healthy condition. The worse decision you can make is to do nothing. Over time water can stagnate, particularly in areas of the home with little natural airflow. Any stored fabrics or clothing can also quickly become a breeding ground for bacteria and fungi.
At a preliminary stage, you may want to consider removing furniture from the affected area. Larger items like sofas, tables, or cabinets can be left to a SERVPRO technician. If it is not possible to remove an item, we can block furniture, placing it above the water level while work is being done. Using vent box fans, we can encourage airflow in spaces and encourage the evaporation process. Our goal is to dry your home as quickly as possible, as this remains the most effective method of water restoration.
With the property appropriately dry, SERVPRO can start working to restore any water damaged contents or decor. Prolonged exposure to moisture can result in yellowing, discoloration, or watermarks on upholstery, flooring, and walls. For carpets and fabrics, we can load pre-conditioners into our truck-mounted extractors and distribute it efficiently where needed. Roto machines can buffer flooring, and furniture can be refinished to its preloss condition.
Acting quickly to recover your property after a water incident can play a crucial role in the recovery of losses. Contact SERVPRO of Minnetonka immediately at (952) 473-4837.
