How To Prepare Your Business For Hail Damage

5/5/2022 (Permalink)

Owning a business comes with many responsibilities, not the least of which is maintaining your commercial property. Along with regular building maintenance, have a plan in place in case of natural disasters, such as hail storms. Here are a few things you can do to prepare for possible hail damage.

Know the Common Types of Hail Damage

Think through potential types of damage so you can make sure you have each one covered. Here are a few common types:

Roof Damage: This is a very common area of hail damage. Be sure to have your roof regularly inspected and repaired, especially after a hail storm. Regular maintenance can help prevent severe roof damage.

Glass Damage: If you have skylights, be sure that they are impact-resistant. Windows can be at risk too, depending on the angle of the hail coming down. Consider using impact-resistant glass here as well.

Property Damage: Hail can also cause damage to the property surrounding your building. This could include trees, HVAC units, or even commercial vehicles kept on your property.

Make Sure You are Covered
Once you have reviewed potential sources of storm damage, make sure that you have adequate commercial property insurance. This type of insurance will cover the financial impact of storm-related damage, which is an important protection for the financial health of your company. In the event of storm damage, initiate a claim with your insurance company and request authorization for a Minnesota storm damage company to come in to do repairs. You don't want to be left with roof damage or other property damage impeding your ability to get back to business.

Protect Employees
Have an emergency plan in place to make sure employees stay safe in the event of a hail storm. Designate a gathering area safely away from windows, and communicate a procedure to follow with your employees. Consider practicing emergency drills.
No one wants to think about their business suffering storm damage, but early preparation can save a lot of hassle in the event of damaging hail. Make sure you have your bases covered to protect your property, your employees and your hard work.

3 Essential Steps For Fire Prevention at Your Business

4/30/2021 (Permalink)

Inside of a building damaged by fire Fire damage in Albertville, MN.

Three Steps For Fire Prevention

The safety of employees, customers, property and inventory are high priorities for any business owner in Albertville, MN. You want to make sure that you do what you can to maintain a building that is free from danger. Here are three steps for fire prevention you need to take to protect against one of the most common hazards that your business could face.

1. Invest in Proper Equipment
In order to reduce the risk of injury and extensive fire damage, make sure that you have the correct equipment on hand. You should have at least one fire extinguisher on each floor. Keep a stocked first aid kit in case of any minor injuries as well. To help your employees in case of a larger fire, put together an emergency kit including:

  • Masks to fight smoke inhalation
  • Bottles of water
  • A flashlight
  • Spare batteries

2. Know the Risks
Complete an assessment of your entire building to determine what additional fire prevention steps need to be taken. Look for potential hazards, such as areas with lots of paper or other items that would quickly fuel a blaze. Make sure that you have clear pathways to all exits. If your municipality offers it, request a visit from a fire marshal to help identify further sources of danger.

3. Make a Plan
Make sure that your employees know exactly what to do in case a business fire breaks out. Create a plan that includes escape plans, emergency contact numbers and the location of all safety equipment. Go through the plan at least annually with employees. If you have a large staff, perform fire drills regularly to ensure everyone knows what to do.
Proper fire prevention steps are the key to keeping your business safe. Even if the unthinkable does happen, having knowledgeable and well-trained employees will help prevent injuries or severe destruction. Be sure to get a professional fire damage assessment afterward to ensure your building gets the rehab it needs to return to normal operations.

What To Do if You Smell a Musty Odor From Your AC

Signs and How To Prevent Mold

As a commercial property owner or manager in Delano, MN, you know there are many tasks you must perform to keep buildings running smoothly. If you’ve ever noticed a musty odor when you run the heating or air conditioning, it might be time to check the ducts for black mold. An understanding of the signs, and how to prevent mold in the future, will help you identify the problem. Here are a few things to look for.

Signs of Mold
Even though it is small, mold leaves signs that will alert you to its presence. When determining the source of a musty odor, the first thing you should do is check for the telltale symptoms of mold:

  • Black dust near air ducts
  • Moisture or discoloration on floors or walls
  • Foul odors when air is flowing


If you notice any of these signs, the best thing to do is call a mold remediation specialist. Cleaning and sanitizing mold-affected items requires specialized equipment and expertise, so this is not a DIY situation. If you try to clean it on your own, you'll likely make the problem worse.


Prevent Mold
After your building is free of black mold, you’ll want to prevent it from coming back. Here are a few simple things you can do:

  • Improve ventilation
  • Keep gutters clean
  • Change the HVAC air filter regularly
  • Install a humidity sensor
  • Inspect bathrooms and kitchens for water leaks


These tasks will help you keep your building free of excess moisture, which causes mold growth. Depending on your climate, you may want to consider a system-wide dehumidifier to keep levels under control. In addition, you can schedule an annual duct cleaning to ensure mold doesn’t grow unnoticed.
Black mold is a tiny organism that can create significant problems if not addressed in a timely manner. By ensuring your building has clean ducts, you’ll maintain a healthy space for everyone inside.

3 Ways To Prepare Your Sprinkler System

Automatic ceiling Fire Sprinkler at the Office Don't allow your fire sprinkler system to be forgotten

Three Things To Do To Ensure the Safety of Your Staff and Your Building

As a new business owner in Clearwater, MN, you made sure that a sprinkler system was installed. When did you last think about it? Unfortunately, sprinkler systems often get left off of the yearly maintenance to-do list because they don't malfunction like an HVAC system where people notice if something is wrong. In the event of a fire at your business, you want to feel confident that your fire sprinkler system is going to do its job. 

Maintain
Plan to periodically check your sprinkler system for obvious issues. Perhaps one of the sprinklers was damaged when a piece of equipment bumped it, or a pipe was bent during some type of maintenance. If you notice anything like that, call your fire suppression system contractor to come and replace the parts. Check too for dust build-up or rust.

Inspect
The National Fire Protection Association sets standards for regular maintenance, inspection, and testing of fire sprinkler systems. Following these regulations keeps your business up-to-code and ensures that your system is ready if it's needed.
Test
You don't have to set off the sprinkler system in your building to test it. Completing the main drain test will likely fall under the scope of a whole system inspection, but if for any reason you're concerned that your sprinkler system may not be working properly, you can test it yourself.
In the event that your sprinkler system does go off due to a fire, it is important to contact your system contractor to reset the sprinklers promptly. Then, follow up with a local fire and water remediation team that will assist in the fire sprinkler cleanup process as well as with soot and smoke damage mitigation.
Don't allow your fire sprinkler system to be forgotten. Regular maintenance, inspection, and testing will keep your business and employees safe.

How To Get Your Business Ready for Spring

Roof Gutter Cleaning Tips. Clean Your Gutters. Gutter Cleaning. Make sure to keep your gutters clean

Steps To Prepare Your Commercial Building For Spring

Spring, with its birds and flowers, can be beautiful. However, the season also brings challenges, including flooding from either snowmelt and heavy rains. The following are four steps you can take to prepare your Albertville, MN, commercial building for spring.

1. Clean the Gutters
The gutters on your building are responsible for diverting water away from the structure. Make sure they are clear of any debris so that they function their best.

2. Clear the Snow
If your business is located in an area that receives heavy snowfall, the snowmelt is likely to cause a spring flood. Remove the snow from the roof and from around the foundation. If the snow is unevenly distributed around the property, try to spread it out. Doing so will help prevent large pools of water from forming when the temperatures rise.

3. Make Sure the Sump Pump Works
If your business experiences flooding, whether from heavy rains or a frozen pipe burst, a sump pump can help. If the building has a sump pump, it will be located in either the basement or the crawl space. To test it, simply pour in enough water to activate the pump. While you're working with the device, it is a good idea to clean out any debris that may have built up.

4. Protect Documents and Other Important Items
No one expects their company property to incur water damage. Still, anticipating disasters can help you avoid future stress and headache if you do your best to protect your building’s contents before it happens. Although an experienced restoration service can usually help you get your business back to preloss condition, it is generally easier to prevent damage in the first place. Make sure there are electronic copies of all critical documents. Move important equipment to higher ground. Put smaller items in waterproof storage bags.
In many cases, flooding happens without much warning. Spring floods, however, are often predictable. This gives you the opportunity to be proactive in protecting your business.

3 Ways Water Can Damage Your Business Property

Common Water Damage Problems

There are a number of ways water can cause problems at your Delano, MN, place of business, including damaged pipes,. Fortunately, a local restoration service can help. Here are three common water damage problems they have the ability to help solve.

1. Storm

A storm can cause a number of issues that may lead to water damage problems at your place of business. High winds can remove shingles from the roof or blow damaging debris into the building. Storm rains can also fill clogged gutters or drainage areas and cause them to overflow which can cause a number of problems if left unattended. No matter what the storm cause problem is, your local restoration team should be able to help.

2. Broken Pipe

In many cases, a business can suffer water problems due to damaged pipes. Leaking pipes can leave puddles of water in areas around bathrooms, employee break rooms, service sinks, and emergency eyewash stations. If you notice a leak it’s important to have the problem fixed as quickly as possible, as allowing the water to sit can give it the chance to soak in and cause damage..

3. Flood

There are a number of ways flooding can occur including storms and broken pikes as discussed earlier. Flooding can also come from sewer back up or a drainage overflow. Fortunately, a restoration service can help with all these problems. It’s also important to note that because the path of water flow is difficult to trace in a flood scenario, flood water is classified as black water which means certain sanitation steps will need to be followed during cleanup. Your restoration crew should already be aware of the necessary processes.

After a large storm, damaged pipes, or flooding have cause water damage to your business it’s important to contact a professional for help. Will a little time and work that can have the property looking “Like it never even happened.”

A Comprehensive Plan To Deal With Fire Damage

9/21/2020 (Permalink)

A Comprehensive Plan To Deal With Fire Damage

When fire damage strikes in Annandale, MN, it pays to have a comprehensive plan in place. A complete plan includes the following elements:

  • A quick response from fire remediation specialists
  • Action to secure the building from looters
  • Equipment in place to deal with water removal
  • A dry-cleaning strategy for uniforms and other fabrics
  • The storage of contents

The restoration of the building

All of these steps are necessary to get your business up and running again. The fire remediation professionals will work quickly to restore your building to its condition before the fire happened.

Why Content Cleaning Is Crucial

When a fire sweeps through your commercial building, there is likely to be some structural damage. There will also be damage from smoke and soot and this will have to be addressed before the building will be functional again. Specialized equipment in the hands of trained technicians will be needed. For clothes, dry-cleaning is the most effective approach, as it removes smoke odors and cleans away soot. For non-porous items, ultrasonic measures provide the best cleaning.

Another immediate concern is removing the excess moisture in the building. This can come from flooding due to a storm or from the efforts of the fire fighting crew. Ventilation devices, scrubbers and thermal foggers are employed to remove the excess water and humidity. This is a crucial task to make certain mold doesn't begin to grow in areas of the building. Water removal will also help with retaining the viability of electrical equipment such as computer software and hardware. Content storage may be needed to remove items from the building while the cleanup is going on. This gets the items out of the way and keeps them protected while the work is going on.

Relying on a smart plan is the quickest way to recover after a commercial fire. Actions such as dry-cleaning, water removal and drying allow your business to get up and running as rapidly as possible.

Tips for Maximizing the Value of Fire Sprinklers

Tips for Maximizing the Value of Fire Sprinklers

The methods of fighting commercial fires have changed over the centuries, but water is still a go-to resource for extinguishing a blaze. In ancient Roman times, the first fire departments arrived on the scene, but sometimes had ulterior motives: they would only offer to help if the building owner would sell the property. Fortunately, the fire service has improved since then. For building owners, a fire sprinkler system offers a quick and effective response to a fire in Howard Lake, MN. It can catch a fire in its early stages, either putting out the fire or at least slowing its spread. A few tips can help you get the most out of your system.

Install the Right System

If you run a small business, the cost of a fire sprinkler system will be a factor in what type you buy. It's possible to install a system that only covers certain critical areas of your company, such as a computer or electrical area. It's always a good idea to work with a licensed and insured contractor to install the system in accordance with pertinent codes and standards. The contractor may recommend a chemical corrosion inhibitor which helps prevent leaking and improves hydraulic performance. Remember, sprinkler systems have numerous benefits, including the following:

  • Automatic operation triggered by heat
  • Superior fire suppression
  • Rapid activation
  • Enhanced peace of mind
  • Reduced insurance premiums

Make the Right Moves
Once a fire sprinkler unit is in your building, make sure to maintain it properly. Also, equip your company with a robust alarm system and an adequate supply of fire extinguishers. If your sprinklers do go off, you will need fire sprinkler cleanup by a trusted fire remediation team. Water damage is always a consequence of putting out a fire and should be taken care of by professionals. They can also take care of any fire damage in the building and remove the effects of soot and smoke damage, restoring your building to good condition again.

How to Prevent Damage From Severe Storms

3/17/2020 (Permalink)

Woman watching TV and using remote controller The more advance warning you have, the more time you will have to prepare for a storm

When it's winter in Clearwater, MN, it's important to be prepared. A winter storm can come with high winds, heavy snow, and ice. All of these things can cause damage to your business. Here are some tips for how to best prepare for upcoming storm damage.

Watch the Weather

The more advance warning you have, the more time you will have to prepare for a storm. There are multiple ways you can check your weather forecast:

  • Your local news station
  • The weather app on your phone
  • Online

Setting up alerts on your phone to go off when you are under a winter storm watch or warning can also give you some indication for when a storm pops up unexpectedly.

Secure Light Items

If you have items outside that can blow away in a storm, either bring them inside or secure them. Not only do you want to avoid losing these items, but you also want to prevent it from flying and hitting another item, causing damage.

Eliminate Pipe Risks

The cold weather that comes with winter storms can cause a pipe to break. There are a couple of ways to prevent this. For pipes that face an outside wall or may be exposed to cold temperatures, leave the water dripping. In addition, be sure that you keep the thermostat at the same temperature at night as you do during the day.

Prepare for Power Outage

Heavy snow from a storm can cause tree branches to fall onto power lines. Sometimes, the weight of the snow is enough to bring a power line down. Prepare for a potential outage by making sure all of your data is backed up.
Storm damage from a winter storm can be devastating, but there are some things you can do to help prevent it. Watch the weather to know when a storm is coming, secure items that may fly away, keep water dripping from faucets and be ready for a power outage. When you do experience storm damage, trust your storm restoration experts to help repair the damage.

Can You Sue Your Property Manager Over Mold Issues?

Can You Sue Your Property Manager Over Mold Issues?

If your business in St Michael, MN, recently suffered from fungus growth, you probably have filed mold insurance claims with both your own insurer and the landlords. After all, your policy probably initiated cleanup procedures, and the building's policy may have aided in paying off the structural repairs. This overall process is tedious, long and expensive. In fact, depending on your coverage, you may have suffered more than your deductible. You may have faced months of lost revenue, hurting your company's ability to survive. At this point, you may wonder whether you can sue your property manager for failing to provide adequate space. It might be possible. Here are a few things to consider.

1. What Were the Damages?

The mold remediation company should conduct an inspection, looking for the origin of the contamination. Spores multiply when they come into contact with water, so if a leak occurred it could cause the problem. Make sure the plumbing and roofing is examined, and consider why a problem occurred in the pipes or the shingles. Document everything because the source of the issue is significant to your lawsuit.

2. Who Is Responsible?

When mold insurance claims are considered, the companies need to understand if anyone was at fault or neglected duties. Property managers, for instance, have an obligation to protect the building and those that use it. Lawsuits might be feasible if you can prove any of the following occurred:

  • The property manager ignored the initial issue
  • Management was aware of faulty equipment or parts
  • Property management made choices that endangered tenants

3. Was Prevention Encouraged?

How much effort did managers put into maintaining the property? Routine inspections could prevent fungus growth and a mold claim. Roof specialists and plumbers should come in once or twice a year, looking for small leaks in piping and shingles.
Mold insurance claims are expensive. If you think that a lawsuit is possible, consider whether your landlords or owners failed to repair something in a timely manner or keep your employees safe. You would need to prove negligence or endangerment.

Hail on the Roof. Get your roof professionally inspected before the first signs of winter weather

Take These Steps To Prepare Your Building for a Winter Storm

As the first winter weather of the season rolls into Howard Lake, MN, it could be too late to consider winterizing your building. Being proactive is key when it comes to potential storm damage. As cooler temperatures approach, it’s a good time to go over last-minute details before the cold sets in. Consider taking these steps to prepare your building for a winter storm:

1. Inspect the Roof

Get your roof professionally inspected before the first signs of winter weather. Damaged flashings and loose or missing shingles could result in severe damage to the interior of the building if left to sit through the winter.

2. Cut Back Tree Limbs

Ice and snow really weigh down tree limbs. Be sure to trim back overhanging, loose or dead branches before winter weather hits. Otherwise, you risk damage to your roof, windows, gutter system, among other things.

3. Clean Gutters

A winter storm can wreak havoc on a gutter system. Make sure to keep gutters free of all leaves and debris. A combination of full gutters and snow can form ice dams which can cause interior damage.

4. Inspect Insulation and Weather Stripping

Make sure that your building has a sufficient amount of insulation and weather stripping. They can make all the difference when it comes to the cost of your heating bill.

5. Leave the Heat On

Leave the heat on even in areas that aren’t being used. Set the thermostat to no lower than 55 degrees Fahrenheit.

6. Inspect HVAC System

Get a full HVAC inspection before cold weather arrives. This will ensure that everything is in proper working order before the need for heat arises.

7. Inspect Exposed Pipes

Make sure that the pipes are properly insulated to protect them from freezing and bursting. By sealing any cracks or openings you will go a step further to prevent a pipe break.
When it comes to winter in Howard Lake, MN, being proactive can ultimately save time and possibly even a lot of expense. If your building sustains damage from a winter storm, be sure to call storm cleanup professionals to help.

Lower Your Commercial Water Bill With These Simple Upgrades

9/23/2019 (Permalink)

Hands of someone with soap washing them on a hands- free faucet When replacing old sink heads with touch-less faucets, think of the long term savings and water waste prevention

The Following Four Upgrades Can Help You Manage Your Monthly Water Bill

As a commercial business owner in Monticello, MN, you are always looking for ways to become more efficient and cost effective in your business practices. If you've experienced water issues in your facility, you know the costs can range based on the repair work needed and the resulting water damage restoration. Whether you want to lower your operating costs or prevent costly repairs, the following four upgrades can help you to manage your monthly water bill.

1. Hands-Free Faucets

For some, the initial cost of replacing and installing sink fixtures may feel like a bit of an investment. But when replacing old sink heads with touch-less faucets, think of the long-term savings and water waste prevention. With a touch-less faucet, motion sensors turn on the water only when washing. This prevents sinks from being uselessly left on and may save you money in the following ways:

  • Less water used
  • Less water wasted
  • Prevention of sink flooding

2. Efficient Flush Valves

Are you operating in an older facility? If your building is over 25 years old, it may be time to switch-out old toilet flush valves. This water upgrade will save you three-to-five times the water used by older valves. This is a fairly inexpensive fix and can save you a good amount of money with time.

3. Drip Irrigation

Does your business pay for on-site irrigation? Some of the most costly water issues are a result of poor irrigation planning. From haphazard watering patterns to leaking sprinkler heads, these water-wasting practices quickly add up in cost. One simple solution might be installing a drip irrigation system. These concentrated sprinkler heads use a fraction of the water and deliver it right to the plant, making them over 60% more efficient in some cases.

4. Timely Plumbing Repairs

While regular plumbing inspection may not be considered an upgrade to your building, plumbing professionals can address the need for immediate repairs. Likewise, they can alert you of water issues that may be costing you hundreds of dollars each month. Consider these four suggestions when looking to reduce your commercial water costs.

Commercial Water Damage due to Toilet Overflow

A flooded toilet is a common source of water damage, but what many people may not realize is that it can be harmful if it isn’t cleaned up properly. Sewer damage of any kind often carries harmful contaminants, so it’s important to take care of the damage quickly and thoroughly.

Minimizing Damage From a Toilet Overflow

Avoiding Further Damage

Sewage water is considered a category 3 contaminant, meaning it can contain mold spores, bacteria, and other harmful microorganisms. Although it can be tempting to just mop up the spill and move on, that can leave harmful contaminants behind. The first thing you should do when you experience this damage is call a sewage company to help you handle the cleanup. They will be able to properly clean the affected area to ensure no damage or contamination is left behind. Services they perform can include the following:

  • Mopping, wet vacuuming, or other methods of water extraction
  • Speeding drying through the use of dehumidifiers or fans
  • Sanitizing the area by applying disinfectants
  • Removing porous surfaces such as carpet padding which may have absorbed the contamination
  • Repairing any sewer damage in your lines or pipes to prevent future incidents.

Preventing Future Damage

Restoration companies in St Michael, MN can also help you to prevent future problems. They may be able to repair damage to your sewer system, install a backwater prevention valve, or clear obstructions in your pipes. There are also measures you can take to avoid damage. Be careful to dispose of grease and paper products properly, for example, as these can cause clogs or other damage to your pipes. Your restoration company will likely be able to give you advice specific to your situation.

When sewer damage leads to a flooded toilet, proper cleanup is the key to avoiding further problems. Thoroughly clearing the hazardous contamination, combined with appropriate preventative measures, is the best way to avoid long-term damage.

Signs of Black Mold in Your Facility’s Air Ducts and How To Remediate

4/10/2019 (Permalink)

Mold damage in a Monticello, MN home.

Black mold, really any mold, can be tricky. You may not even be aware of a mold infestation because it is tucked deep into wall cavities and basement corners. However, another area to be leery of is your property’s air vents. Mold cannot only develop in your ductwork, but it can spread as well. Therefore, you should be aware of the potential signs of an air duct infestation so that you can limit greater facility exposure.

1. Musty Odors

One of the main signs that your facility’s air ducts have a fungal problem is the presence of musty odors. While it is true that some areas may have these odors naturally, if the problem is present in your ductwork, you will likely notice a stronger smell when the HVAC unit cycles on.

2. Black Dust

Black mold, as with all molds, starts from a spore. Another sign that you have an issue of fungal growth in your ductwork is the appearance of black dust on your register vents. While this may appear to be dust, it is more likely a collection of mold spores. To test whether it is actually dust or mold, you can attempt to clean it. Mold will not wipe off easily, and it will smear like grease.

3. Physical Symptoms

There are several physical symptoms from mold in your ducts. You may notice that your eyes begin to itch every time the HVAC kicks on, or you may sneeze uncontrollably when the air or heat is on. Additionally, you may get headaches or stomachaches. Pay attention to the way you feel when your system is running.

4. Remediation

If you notice musty odors, black dust and physical symptoms, then you may have a mold problem that is located in your ductwork. Call a mold remediation specialist in the Monticello, MN , area to help to clean ducts and pinpoint and verify the infestation.

Black mold is a problem, and if it is hidden, the problem is only intensified. Mold needs to be removed from properties to ensure the health of tenants and employees. Therefore, if you suspect a mold problem, call in a remediation expert.

Commercial Property Insurance and Fire Damage

Smoke detectors in your St. Michael, MN commercial property should be regularly tested

Most commercial insurance policies cover fire damage. These policies should also cover additional or secondary damage caused by water used to extinguish a fire or smoke. The following factors may impact the cost and limits of a business insurance policy.

The Type of Business

Businesses that use hazardous or flammable equipment may have higher insurance premiums. These operations may involve

  • Alcohol
  • Chemicals
  • Cooking equipment
  • Smoking
  • Vehicles

The premiums for a bar, garage, or a conventional office building may vary widely based on the difference in fire risk levels. Business owners should make sure that a sufficient level of coverage is available for the potential costs of damage cleanup and restoration and liability.

Structural Components

A building made of combustible materials such as wood may pose a greater fire risk than a structure that is built out of fire-resistant materials. Owners should consider the risk of fire in the primary structure in addition to any additions or modifications. The degree to which building materials may succumb to fire and the distance of a business from the nearest fire station may drive up the cost of a commercial insurance policy.

Fire Safety Equipment

It is also crucial that a business be equipped with fire safety equipment. This may include

  • Alarms and detectors
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Sprinklers

Some regional building codes require hardwired fire alarms. These systems should also have a battery backup in case of power failure. Battery-powered smoke detectors should also be regularly tested and the batteries should be changed. Have fire suppression systems and equipment such as extinguishers periodically inspected to ensure that critical components will function in the event of a fire.

All of these factors may impact the costs of commercial insurance coverage for a business located in St Michael, MN. A business owner may want to compare commercial policies to find the right level of coverage for fire damage.

A leaky faucet in your Albertville, MN building can cause you a great deal of wasted money

The Most Common Sources of Leakage or Breakage

Most likely, as a business owner in Albertville, MN, you're always looking for ways to save money and increase the bottom line. Sometimes, costs are hidden in ways that you haven't even thought about. For instance, did you know that a water leak or a hidden pipe break could be costing you thousands of dollars a year? Take a look below at the most common sources of leakage or breakage to make sure this doesn't happen to you.

1. Toilet Leaks

One leaking toilet can waste up to 73,000 gallons of water in a year. That translates to a lot of money! If you have several toilets in your office space, you could have an even bigger money drain. This can easily be avoided by replacing worn-out gaskets and flanges.

2. Faucets

A small drip from a leaky faucet could cause you to lose up to 20 gallons a day. Multiply this by the number of taps in your building, and you could be looking at a great deal of wasted money. In many cases, just changing out a washer can stop the water leak.

3. Exterior Spigots

A leaking spigot is a potential source of leaks that's easy to forget. A spigot that's leaking can not only waste money, but could cause damage to the building's foundation.

4. Leaky Water Heaters

It's possible for a water heater to leak for months without anyone noticing. In addition to simply wasting water, this kind of leak could cause damage to floors and walls, as well as water damage from mold or mildew.

5. Broken Pipes

A broken pipe is a problem that's not always easy to detect. It's a good idea to have a water mitigation professional check your building once a year to look for hidden problems like this.

A water leak can cost you lots of money if left unchecked. But by following the tips outlined above, you can prevent damage and water loss before it happens.

3 Types of Hail Damage That Should Worry Business Owners

10/17/2018 (Permalink)

Hail damage on roof in Buffalo,MN

Protecting a Buffalo,MN, business from a storm requires diligence. When extreme weather targets the area, savvy business owners know they must worry about roof damage and other types of issues. When hail falls from the sky, though, the results can be both unexpected and tough to locate. Here are three types of hail damage that most worry business owners.

1. Damage to the Roof

The roof is one of the most important parts of any business' building. Not only does the roof provide shelter for employees and customers, but it also protects both inventory and equipment. When chunks of ice hit roofing systems, they often cause roof damage. Missing shingles, dented framing and other problems are common following even minimal amounts of hail.

2. Wet Insulation

If hail damages a roof, leaks become increasingly possible. Since most businesses have insulation in their rafters, a leaky roof can cause wet insulation. Without remediation from a reputable restoration service, soggy insulation can attract mold, mildew, fungus and other unwanted contaminants. As such, it is important to inspect both the roof and insulation after a major hailstorm.

3. Water Accumulation

When water stays where it is supposed to stay, it is usually a benefit to business owners. Unfortunately, with a roof leak, water can accumulate inside buildings. Commonly, water pools inside walls and beneath floors. Because this water is not easy to see, business owners often don’t realize it is present until it has promoted mold or fungal growth. Contracting with a remediation specialist is often the best strategy for locating accumulated water and drying out the area.

When the sky turns gray in Buffalo,MN, business owners often worry about hail causing roof damage. Unfortunately, visible damage isn’t the only type of risk associated with hail. To preserve the value and usability of your business, you must be aware of all types of hail-related problems.

What is Category 1 Water Damage?

9/16/2018 (Permalink)

Pipe Break can cause a category 1 water loss

Category One water damage is caused by a leak involving clean water. While the affected area may not need to be disinfected, it is important to eliminate all standing water and thoroughly dry the area as soon as possible. Find out more about the origin and risks of a Category One leak.

Where Does Category 1 Water Come From?

There are two common sources of a Category One leak:

• Broken pipe
• Supply line

Exposure to clean leaking water can still cause primary water damage and set the stage for secondary damage such as mold in a commercial property. Handle these leaks just as quickly as you would a leak involving contaminated Category Two gray water or Category Three black water.

How Do You Clean Up Category 1 Water?

Depending on the size of the leak, you may use a mop, towels, a wet vac, or another method for pumping out water. Clean water should not contain pathogens, solid waste, or chemicals, and so the cleanup process is not involved as for a Category Two or Three leak. Leaks involving contaminated water call for cleaning and disinfection. It is still necessary to thoroughly dry the area exposed to excess water to prevent mold from forming.

What Are the Risks of a Category 1 Leak?

A Category One leak can still cause primary water damage and pose a risk of secondary. If water that starts out clean filters through a floor or ceiling, it will become Category Two water and disinfection will become necessary. It is important to address this type of leak as quickly as possible to prevent the situation from becoming more serious.

If you experience a leak of Category One clean water at a commercial property in St. Michael, MN, you may be able to perform cleanup yourself. If the leak is extensive, contact a commercial water damage restoration firm.

3 Common Types of Water Damage Your Commercial Building Could Experience

6/18/2018 (Permalink)

St. Michael Water Damage from a broken pipe

As a St. Michael, MN, commercial property owner, it is wise to be aware of certain dangers that could damage your building and cause hundreds or even thousands of dollars in repair and cleanup costs. One common cause of trouble is unexpected water damage from a broken pipe or other plumbing malfunction. When this occurs, you might be facing a considerable flood, standing water and other issues that may take days or even weeks to resolve. Knowing what causes these water hazards may help you take effective steps in preventing them.

1. Frozen Plumbing Pipes

When temperatures fall, your building’s water pipes may be prone to freezing. When this happens, water inside the pipes expands as it turns to ice, which can put pressure on a pipe until it bursts. The resulting flood can be considerable, especially if this happens overnight or on a weekend and the broken pipe is not discovered until hours later. Wrap or insulate outdoor and basement pipes to ensure they are protected against cold temperatures.

2. Malfunctioning Toilet

Old toilets with poor water pressure tend to clog more easily than those that flush efficiently. Repeated clogs may cause toilet backup and black water flooding, which will probably require the services of a water damage and cleanup company. Consider replacing your building’s toilets with new auto-flush models that can handle repeated use without getting clogged.

3. Corroded Pipes

Underground water lines are often exposed to different kinds of soil conditions and corrosive substances. Over time, this can damage the pipeline and cause it to burst, resulting in a costly water repair bill. Replacing metal pipes with long-lasting PVC lines can reduce the risk of breakage.

Your St. Michael, MN, commercial property can be prone to different types of water damage that could cost you time and money you cannot afford to lose. Knowing the most common types of water mishaps, such as a broken pipe, and how to prevent them can protect your investment and keep your business humming.

What Should You Consider Fire Damage?

5/29/2018 (Permalink)

Fire can damage any belongings in your commercial business

If you have recently experienced a fire in a commercial property in St. Michael, MN, you may not be sure exactly where the fire damage stops and additional or secondary damage starts. Here are a few pointers regarding which types of damage are typically attributed to a fire. Be sure to factor these items in when filing a commercial property insurance claim.

Building materials and structure:
• Fire may compromise the roof and windows of a building
• Fire may weaken or otherwise undermine the load-carrying capacity of a building's frame or structure
• Fire may destroy safety features or other aspects of the property needed to meet commercial building code requirements

Contents:
• Fire may damage furniture or fixtures to the point where they need to be replaced
• Electronics that have sustained fire damage, melted, or become filled with smoke will need to be cleaned or replaced

Lost profits:
• A fire may prevent you from operating your business as normal schedule

Business interruption insurance coverage can help you cover losses accrued after a fire during the restoration period. This window of time starts after the fire is fully extinguished and continues until the insurance provider deems the property restored. You will need to document fire-damaged building materials and contents that are no longer viable for your insurer to accept and process your claim.

If a fire has occurred in your commercial property, you may be contending with damage caused not only by fire and smoke but by water from suppression systems or fire hoses. It can be very difficult to determine what is or is not fire damage. If you are still not sure, you should rely on the expertise of fire mitigation specialists in St. Michael, MN. These restoration experts can help you provide your insurance adjuster with the information they need to process your claim and restore or replace damaged or lost assets.

How To Prevent Ice Dams From Damaging the Roof of Your Building

3/16/2018 (Permalink)

The cold weather in St. Michael, MN, can create conditions for an ice dam to form on the edge of your roof. Knowing how to prevent them can help you to avoid issues such as roof damage and flooding.

What Are Ice Dams?

It may include large hanging icicles and chunks of ice. They can form on lower areas of the roof because they do not receive as much heat from the building as higher areas and therefore do not get hot enough to melt. As warm air from the building rises to higher areas of the roof, the snow and ice there may begin to thaw, resulting in meltwater that can become stuck behind the blockage.

Why Can They Be a Problem?

A wall of ice can prevent melting snow and ice from being able to properly drain from the roof. This can lead to damage in the insulation, walls or roof of your building, potentially causing leaks and messy water damage.

How Can You Prevent Them?

By preventing the higher areas of your roof from heating up enough to melt, you can keep ice buildup from becoming a problem. This can be accomplished by taking several steps to keep heat from the building from reaching the roof.

These steps can include:

• Closing areas where air can leak upwards
• Adding insulation
• Installing roof or soffit vents

You may need to use a combination of these measures to ensure that dams do not form. Insulation can be especially important, and if your building has less than 8 inches you should add more. Heat cord or tape can also be added to melt off forming ice from the edge of your building’s roof.

Snow and ice can be unavoidable during winter, but you can prevent them from becoming a big problem. Avoid the hard-to-deal-with damage that can result from an ice dam by taking some time to stop it from forming.

When Fire Damage Causes Water Damage

2/22/2018 (Permalink)

After the devastation of a fire in your St Michael, MN home, it can be immensely frustrating to find that belongings that weren’t damaged in the fire were still saturated by water, whether from the local fire team when dousing the fire or due to exposure to the elements after fire damage to the roof left the interior vulnerable to rain. Water cleanup after a fire can be difficult, but not impossible.

1. Be aware of hazards. Standing water left behind after a fire may contain soot or other substances that can cause adverse health reactions. Use protective gear when handling waterlogged belongings or furniture. During all stages of water cleanup, you should consistently focus on safety and assessing the situation before handling water-damaged possessions.

2. Determine what can be salvaged. Some items, such as plastics and other water-resistant materials, can be left to dry out and can be easily recovered. Others, such as furniture, clothing, and electronics, may not be. Furniture and clothing may be stained by dirty water, or may absorb enough water to mildew beyond cleaning or repair. Electronics, unless they are water-sealed, may short-circuit. They may not be safe to touch, and should be handled gingerly to avoid electrical shock injury.

3. Trust your sprinkler system. Believe it or not, sprinklers are actually a lesser culprit when it comes to fire-related water damage. This is because sprinklers help to suppress the fire, and minimize damage on all fronts. That means firefighters use less volume of water to douse the fire, and the damage doesn’t spread as far, minimizing exposure from loss of structural integrity.

After a fire, not all is lost. You may have to do some water cleanup, but overall a proper fire cleanup routine can be instrumental in saving as much as possible to rebuild again.

Utility Room Fires

11/2/2017 (Permalink)

Utility Room Fires

Commercial fire damage can wreak havok on a person's business and life. Once a business is ravaged with fire damage, there are a number of things that must be done immediately to mitigate as much damage as possible. Firefighters are only responsible for fire suppression. Once the fire trucks leave, you're on your own. In most cases, fire suppression will also take place when the fire sprinkler system engages.

Only a professional inspection can pinpoint how the fire started. It could be a utility room fire or some other accidental fire. If it is a utility room fire, the fire sprinkler system should engage for the purpose of fire suppression.

Aside from smoke damage, soot damage and the obvious fire damage, the business will get soaked from fire hoses and the fire sprinkler system. This also means a significant amount of water damage to the business. After the firefighters pack up their fire trucks and leave, a fire restoration company must be called as soon as possible. The commercial fire damage left in the wake will be a huge job.

Electrical fires are by far the biggest culprit when fires break out. And they almost always happen in the place where the most wires are found -- the utility room. utility room fires can prove devastating. Not only do these type of fire move quickly, they pose an electrocution risk.

When the fire restoration team arrives, they will go through a number of steps before they get started. The fire sprinkler system should be shut off at this point. The first step is securing the home for safety purposes. They will then assess the fire damage in every room to determine the extent. The plan of action is developed from the assessment. Commercial fire damage is a huge deal, but experienced restoration teams are more than equipped to handle the job.

The fire restoration team will then begin the process of boarding up and tarping areas that need it. Electrical fires can cause a great deal of damage to the property. The water pressure from fire hoses can also do damage as well. The areas that are exposed will be boarded up. If the roof is damaged, tarp will be placed over it.

The team will then focus on water removal and drying. Once fire hoses drench the business with water, it will have to be extracted. Large hoses, much like the fire hoses used by the firefighters extract water from carpeting, floors, upholsters and furniture. After water is removed, industrial dryers will dry all remnants of water that remain.

The business will have a significant amount of smoke and soot damage. Professionals will use specialized equipment to eliminate soot and smoke damage from walls, ceilings and other affected surfaces. The most important part of the process is cleaning and sanitizing. Soot damage is removed with industrial scrubbers. Foggers are used to tackle any lingering smoke damage.

Restoration after commercial fire damage is the last step to getting the business back up and running. A person's business is their livelihood. The sooner the fire damage is fixed, the sooner things can get back on track.

If a business owner is stricken by an electrical fire, a professional restoration service should be contacted as soon as the fire trucks leave. Firefighters can only help with fire suppression, but a professional fire restoration team can remove smoke damage, soot damage and bring the business back to its pre electrical fire condition. If done correctly, the home should be back to its pre-electrical fire shape.

Utility room fires can wreak a great deal of damage on a business. The longer the business is down, the more money is lost. Let a reputable fire restoration team help out once the fire trucks are gone.
