What Few People Know About Flooding in Minneapolis

Why SERVPRO What Few People Know About Flooding in Minneapolis If your cafe location has suffered from flood damage, contact team SERVPRO right away for effective remediation services.

A Severe Thunderstorm Can Cause Flood Damage to Your Minneapolis Cafe

When it comes to any city that is situated by a river, an excess volume of rain can end up causing flood damage to the buildings around it. Your riverside cafe, known for its view overlooking the water, suffered this exact problem. As the water levels of the river rose, they began to overtake buildings close by throughout the night. Upon arriving at your establishment in the morning, you entered the space to find a few inches of water scattered across the wooden flooring.

It is vital for you to call professional services to your cafe to remediate the commercial flood damage in Minneapolis as soon as possible. Leaving the water for an extended period can only cause more problems, such as the water absorbing into your wooden flooring. Additionally, flood water usually is not clean water, unlike the liquid that would come from a burst pipe inside of your shop. Because of the nature of floods, the water can bring sewage, chemicals, and bacteria into your cafe. Getting professionals to the scene allows you to avoid the unsanitary water and gives us the chance to remove it safely.

When SERVPRO receives your call, we always strive to arrive at your property swiftly. We understand how essential it is for your business to be open during the day so you can make your revenue. We work on your clock and arrive at the scene of the damage swiftly after your initial call.

After a brief investigation, planning, and spray of an antimicrobial agent, SERVPRO can begin to remediate the flood damage through the use of wet/dry vacuums. Getting the standing water out of the front of your cafe is our first task, so it cannot continue to spread contaminants and cause water damage to the structure of the space.

SERVPRO technicians can then sanitize and remove the tables and chairs around the front of your cafe. From there, we can focus on removing any excess moisture from the floors, after thoroughly cleaning the area with an antibacterial solution to ensure that contaminants are gone. SERVPRO can set up devices like dehumidifiers, drying mats, and air movers to draw the moisture out of the wooden flooring. When the moisture levels of your cafe have been appropriately lowered, SERVPRO can return the tables and chairs to their rightful places and then leave your cafe feeling "Like it never even happened."

When a thunderstorm causes flood damage to your establishment, never delay when trying to get help. Dial the number (952) 473-4837 to reach out to and speak with SERVPRO of Minnetonka. No matter the time or the day of the week, our technicians are ready to assist you.
