Commercial Water Damage Restoration In Minneapolis Can Require Dealing With Asbestos

It is possible that someday a pipe could break in a unit above your Minneapolis gift store overnight. The leak could then spray several gallons of liquid H2O inside your gift shop and cause you to have to conduct commercial water damage restoration. Moisture coming into your place of business from the ceiling can cause several of your building materials and contents to get wet. Since water follows gravity, your floors could get affected.

Luckily our team of experts at SERVPRO has dealt with several different commercial water damage projects in Minneapolis. We know that when dealing with your company's building that keeping your business operating is vital. If it is required, we can change how we conduct the restoration operations so that your company can stay functioning as usual.

Once the flooring inside your gift shop gets wet, the floor coverings could get damaged. Floor coverings such as carpet or linoleum can also trap moisture underneath them and prevent your subfloors from drying out. In more extreme situations, building materials like your carpet can get saturated. When carpet gets wet, it can become delaminated, which happens when the carpet fibers break loose from their backing. Once any carpets inside your store get delaminated, they must be removed and replaced.

Sometimes when removing carpets, our SERVPRO technicians find other floor coverings such as more carpet or older vinyl tiles underneath the top floor covering. When dealing with older flooring materials we use caution because glues and vinyl tiles created decades ago could have asbestos inside them. As soon as we find any materials that look like they could contain asbestos, we call in a certified industrial hygienist to test the materials. If asbestos is found, then the demolition work must get completed by a professional asbestos removal contractor.

Once all of the asbestos has been removed from your building, we can then inspect your subfloor and see if it got wet. If our moisture sensors tell us that your wooden subfloors have a high moisture content, then we can set up fans and dehumidifiers to dry out your affected building materials.

If you ever notice wet items or standing water inside your gift shop when you go to open it in the morning, call SERVPRO of Minnetonka at (952) 473-4837 24 hours a day. We can return your gift store to the way it was before the water leak, "Like it never even happened."
