Deep Cleaning Services for Moorhead Businesses?

9/21/2021 (Permalink)

A clean commercial kitchen is shown. We deep clean commercial properties in Clay County.

My restaurant in Moorhead was starting to look a little dingy. The light fixtures, walls, baseboards, furniture, and floors looked dull even though the dining room, restrooms, and kitchen were cleaned daily. I called SERVPRO® of Moorhead, and they came out and provided deep cleaning services that went way beyond what my janitorial service could do.

They went systematically through each room, cleaning every surface from the ceilings to the floors and windows and everything in between. They degreased the vent hood in the commercial kitchen and cleaned and deodorized the floor drains and the bathrooms. By the time they completed the deep cleaning, my restaurant was sparkling clean. The clean light fixtures made the rooms look brighter, and everything smelled and looked pristine! Thank you, SERVPRO!

Tornado Damage in Moorhead?

A tornado is shown in the distance. We mitigate and restore storm damage in Clay County.

Do you know that Moorhead is a high-risk area for tornadoes? Since 1950 there have been 120 tornadoes, and two tornadoes touch down in Clay County each year. SERVPRO® of Moorhead responds to tornado and other severe storm damage emergencies and offer these tips on staying safe during a tornado from the American Red Cross:

  • Identify a safe place in your home where household members and pets will gather during a tornado: a basement, storm cellar, or an interior room on the lowest floor with no windows
  • In a high-rise building, pick a hallway in the center of the building. You may not have enough time to go to the lowest floor. 
  • In a mobile home, choose a safe place in a nearby sturdy building. If your mobile home park has a designated shelter, make it your safe place. No mobile home, however, it is configured, is safe in a tornado.
  • tornado watch means a tornado is possible
  • tornado warning means a tornado is already occurring or will occur soon. Go to your safe place immediately.

Sinking Feeling in Sabin?

A study published by the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS) reported that water damage from a sink averaged more than $7,000 dollars per incident.

A homeless encampment is shown next to a roadway. We clean and restore homeless encampment scenes in Clay County.

There was an abandoned homeless encampment in the field behind our store. It was a dangerous and unhealthy area that was riddled with refuse, and something had to be done to make the area safe again. I called SERVPRO® of Moorhead. They sent a team out to remove the tents, garbage, and other refuse and safely dispose of everything.

Pet Fire Safety Tips for Barnesville?

8/11/2021 (Permalink)

A happy dog is shown sitting on a couch. We respond to fire damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Clay County.

SERVPRO® of Moorhead responds to fire damage emergencies throughout the year in Barnesville. Here are some pet fire safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association to keep your furry friends safe:

  • Pets are curious. They may bump into, turn on, or knock over cooking equipment. Keep pets away from stoves and countertops.
  • Keep pets away from candles, lamps, and space heaters
  • Always use a metal or heat-tempered glass screen on a fireplace and keep it in place.
  • Keep pets away from a chimney’s outside vents. Have a “pet-free zone” of at least three feet away from the fireplace. Glass doors and screens can stay dangerously hot for several hours after the fire goes out
  • Consider battery-operated, flameless candles. They can look and smell like real candles.
  • Some pets are chewers. Watch pets to make sure they don’t chew through electrical cords. Have any problems been checked by a professional?

Pets and Wildfires

Make sure pets are included in your family’s wildfire evacuation plan. Build an evacuation kit for each pet in your household. Ensure each kit is a size and weight that can be quickly and easily loaded into a vehicle when packing to evacuate.

Sewage Backup in Barnesville?

7/28/2021 (Permalink)

A toilet in a clean bathroom is shown. We respond to sewage backup 24-hours a day in Clay County.

Did you know there are three classifications for contaminated water? Sewage backups are classified as “black water.”  SERVPRO® of Moorhead responds to sewage backups 24-hours a day in Barnesville. Here is some information on contaminated water from our website:

Category 3: "Black Water"

Category 3 “Black Water” is grossly unsanitary and can cause severe illness or death if ingested. Any contact should be avoided. Sources for black water include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.

Category 2: "Gray Water"

This water has a significant level of contamination that could cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Sources for category 2 water may include washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow.

Category 1: "Clean Water"

This is water from a clean source, such as a broken clean water supply line or faucet. If left untreated, category 1 water can quickly degrade into category 2 or 3 water depending upon such factors as time, temperature, and contact with contaminants.

A couple is sitting in a casual restaurant on date night. We are trusted leaders in commercial water damage restoration in Clay County.

Drowned Glyndon Restaurant?

I never expected to be wading across water inside my restaurant. I was scheduled to open later that day and needed help fast. My insurance adjuster told me to call SERVPRO® of Moorhead, and that’s the best call I ever made.

The SERVPRO team arrived quickly and immediately began the cleanup and restoration process. They located and repaired the source of the water damage and used powerful extraction equipment to remove the water from the floors. They moved and cleaned and dried all of the furniture that was exposed to the water and set up powerful air dryers and blowers to restore the room to normal moisture levels. They documented the drying process, and by the time they were through, you would never know there had been a shallow lake in my restaurant!
