Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

When the Fire Suppression Sprinkler Floods Your Andover Office

Did you know that water damage is considered secondary damage from a fire?

Commercial Water Removal for Your Andover Office Building

Fire sprinkler systems are affordable and reliable protection for your office building in Andover. Not only do sprinkler systems save you from property losses from fire and save lives, but they also save you money from tax deductions, ordinance and code compliance, savings on insurance, and the ability to keep doing business as usual. However, as beneficial as they are, sprinkler systems can leave a wet mess behind. 

The sprinkler system goes into action as soon as a fire is detected, which then creates a need for commercial water removal in your Andover property. Sprinkler systems can be set up to address a specific area of the fire, preventing it to spread, and lessening the amount of water used as well. A sprinkler system might use hundreds of gallons of water, while firefighters use thousands. 

Any water used indoors leaves you with a problem of moisture that needs addressing. That is where our SERVPRO technicians come in. Water damage can include the carpeting, drywall, and other building materials, plus wet office materials like upholstery, the growth of mold, and standing water. 

Our first step is to clear out items from your property that include cloth, wood, or other porous surfaces and store them in a safe place until your building is ready for their return. Some items might have to be replaced depending on how damaged they are and if we can restore them or not. 

We can then remove any standing water with industrial truck-mounted pumps and extraction equipment. Our goal is to get your office building to the average level of dryness. We can take measurements from dry areas of the structure to determine the right levels. We make use of dehumidifiers and air movers to finish drying the affected area, which prevents mold from forming. 

Water damage can weaken drywall or the structure of your building, or even leave stains on upholstery and carpeting which are permanent. In these cases, restoring your property might require additional cleaning services or construction from other reputable professionals. 

SERVPRO of Coon Rapids/Central Anoka County understands that any downtime for your business in New Brighton, St. Paul, or Arden Hills means lost earnings for you. Therefore, when you call us at (763) 712-9712, we work quickly and efficiently to get you back up and running as soon as possible.
