3 things to know about Sandbags

4/6/2020 (Permalink)

When faced with a storm in Northern MN, you may be considering the possibility of a sand bag wall to protect your home or business. Many water damage restoration services recommend taking steps to mitigate damage before it occurs as a way to protect the property and reduce clean up times and costs. A flood dam is one way to do this. Here is what you may want to know.

1. How They Work

In most cases flood dams works by directing water flow away from the threatened area. Many people choose sandbags as they are easy to build in a variety of protective formations. Dry sand is loaded into the bag, and the bag is then folded and placed to create a wall. When the water reaches the wall it is absorbed by the sand which then becomes heavier, harder to move, and creates a tighter seal.

2. Where to Place Them

When creating a sand bag barrier to protect your business it’s recommended to construct it in a way that directs the flow of water rather than trying to block it. This will put less force on the wall, and keep the water moving to a safe drainage location. Consider setting the barrier up so that the water flows down hill and away from the property, or into a drainage ditch or open field where it can disperse safely.

3. When to Use Them

One of the best ways to reduce flood damage is to know when to use a flood dam. In most cases you may want to consider the use of sand bags any time you believe flooding may pose a high risk to the property.

When making a sand bag wall or using another flood dam type to protect your company it’s important to understand how they work and where to place them to direct water flow. Using these tools properly may help you reduce the amount of damage your business could face in the next big storm.

A Not So Typical Commercial Job

12/19/2018 (Permalink)

Often when you see something regarding a commercial job, it is involving a fire or a flood.  Not often do you see something different.  This year we got a call from a commercial company for us to come in because of suspected use of methamphetamine's in the apartment.  They wanted us to come in and test the home as well as complete the clean up.  So, we went in and administered a test to determine if there was methamphetamine residue in the home.  Unfortunately, it did come back positive.

Now when dealing with a job like this we had to make sure that we were properly dressed in the proper PPE so that nothing harmful happened to any of us.  All the contents needed to be pulled from the home and thrown away due to the drug residue.  Like a Fire job all the receptacles and outlets must be pulled apart and cleaned because the residue can get into even the smallest of openings.  Carpeting and the padding underneath also need to come out because there is no way of cleaning it due to the drug residue.  The sub floor needs to be sealed where the carpet was like a mold job.  Anything that would have come in contact with the methamphetamine needs to be deep cleaned or thrown away.  Any surface that is not able to be cleaned must be painted.

The cleaning for a job like this is comparable to a Bio, Mold, and Fire job combined.  So, when you think about a commercial job it is not always just fire and water.  There is no job to big for us to handle!
