Coon Rapids/Central Anoka County Smoke and Soot Cleanup

2/1/2021 (Permalink)

fire in a home Smoke and Soot Damage Can Cause a Pervasive Odor in Your Coon Rapids/Central Anoka County Home

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Coon Rapids/Central Anoka County will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

How to Prevent Freezing Pipes

1/31/2021 (Permalink)

frozen pipes in Coon Rapids SERVPRO of Coon Rapids/Central Anoka County has been restoring homes in the Anoka and Coon Rapids area for over 20 years.

Minnesotans are a different kind of breed, dealing with some of the most crucial winter weather in the U.S.

Although the tenants of commercial properties might be prepared for the furiously cold weather that is to come, commercial property managers need to ensure that their buildings are ready, too. 

5 Winter Safety Tidbits to Prevent Freezing Pipes

  1. Insulate water pipes.

This might be one of the easiest solutions. By insulating pipes that are exposed, along with attics, basements, and crawl spaces you will have increased protection from freezing.

  1. Check and re-check shutoff valves.

If a pipe bursts, you will need to stop the water as quickly as you possibly can to prevent further damage. Make sure all of your emergency shutoff valves are in working order.

  1. Inspect your pipes!

If you do not already, be certain that your pipes do not have any leakage or noticeable fatigue that may need replacing. Even if you have the slightest suspicion, it is much cheaper to be safe rather than sorry.

  1. Run water at a slow drip to relieve pressure.

If you believe a pipe is in danger of bursting, running the water at a slow drip, even the smallest of trickles, will help prevent the pipe from freezing and then bursting. If it is starting to freeze, the water will flow through the frozen area and melt the ice. 

  1. Plan.

An emergency action plan should be in place in case of flash flooding. Ensure evacuation routes are mapped out, have a backup plan for critical documents, data, and contact information, and call your SERVPRO of Coon Rapids/Central Anoka County professionals to manage water damage as quickly as possible.

SERVPRO fans preparing for a commercial property fire When we say 24 Hour Service, we mean it! Our teams are always ready to respond and, most times, will show up at your property within an hour of a call

When a fire occurs on your commercial property, both firefighters and sprinkler systems will do everything that they can to put the fire out. Although this is better than the entire property burning down, it does create additional considerations for you during the restoration process of your property. To maintain the value and integrity of your property, water cleanup is just as vital as removing smoke and fire damage within the hours and days of a fire.

Common Types of Damage Post-Fire

Direct Fire Damage

When fires reach high temperatures it becomes an incredibly destructive force. Fire cleanup often requires restorers to simply remove surfaces and items that have been damaged by fire. With our restore vs. replace mentality, we are able to return items to our warehouse for fire remediation and smoke damage repair. Although we do have fire cleanup capabilities, certain electronics, roofing, and structural elements of a building may have to be replaced entirely.

Smoke Residue

Smoke can create residues that are both unpleasant to smell and are damaging to your belongings. It is essential to start smoke damage cleanup as soon as possible to increase the chance for salvaging your items. Smoke residue can build up in computers and other various electronics which can cause them to malfunction. By contacting SERVPRO of Coon Rapids/Central Anoka County you can be assured that our technicians are proper restoration professionals. 

Water Damage

Water damage is always a serious concern and must be handled quickly and efficiently to avoid secondary damages. Certain items and surfaces are more vulnerable to water damage than others depending on their materials. It is very important to dry furniture and other relatively porous possessions as quickly as possible so that mold spores cannot colonize on them. Let our certified technicians handle any residual water remaining, we will ensure that the water that has infiltrated surfaces is taken care of properly.

Why SERVPRO of Coon Rapids/Central Anoka County?

When disaster strikes, it might feel like your property will never be restored back to the way that it was preloss. With the right help, many of your possessions can likely be saved and protected from secondary damage by mold and decay. If you are in need of water, fire, and storm damage, as well as any cleaning for your commercial property within Central Anoka County, do not hesitate to call the experts today at 763-712-9712.

It is essential to know when and what type of storm is headed towards your area so you know the potential and level of damage to expect. Thunderstorms are responsible for over half of all wind damage cases in the U.S., but the repair may be more costly for hurricane or tornado wind damage.

Characteristics of the Wind will Affect the Wind Damage

The wind has many characteristics that differ depending on the situation such as:

  • Speed
  • Direction
  • Duration of Gusts

By recognizing the pattern and type of wind, you will be able to determine another part of how much potential damage to expect. If the wind is expected to come in long gusts, it's important to be aware of branches from trees. Depending on the speed of the wind, you may have to board up windows.

Preventing Wind and Storm Damage

Wind really isn't the thing that causes a majority of the damage - it is the items that get flung around by the wind. Whether it is your garbage can out on the edge of your driveway or debris from plants and trees, unsecured objects can become dangerous in windy situations.
