Flooding and Water Damage Restoration in Grand Rapids, MN

ATTENTION SQUAW LAKE RESIDENTS: ICE DAM ALERT

With winter almost here, its time to think about ice dam prevention.

When heat escapes through your roof, it melts the snow on top of it. As the snow melts, the water runs down your roof and then when it starts to get colder, the water refreezes and starts to build up until it dams the water, pushing it back up the roof and forcing it to go under the shingles and causing water damage inside your home.

To help stop an ice dam forming on your roof, make sure your attic area is properly insulated. Try to keep the entire roof at the same temperature as the eaves. You may need to increase ventilation or add insulation and seal off any air leaks.

Our Restoration Process

Every water damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” water damage emergency.

1.  Emergency Contact

When you call us, our consultant will guide you through several questions that will help us respond to your water emergency more quickly and efficiently. This initial contact is an important part of a fast, effective restoration.

2. Inspection and Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of your water damage at this stage is crucial to developing a plan of action. We inspect and test the damaged area to determine the extent of damage and how far the moisture has traveled to ensure proper and complete restoration.

3. Water Removal / Water Extraction

The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes the majority of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.

4. Drying and Dehumidification

After the bulk of the water has been removed, we use specialized equipment to target the water that’s harder to access. Our Professionals use less intrusive, scientific drying methods to draw the remaining water and moisture from your property with air movers and dehumidifiers.

5. Cleaning and Sanitizing

Water damage also affects your belongings, like furniture, clothing, and personal items. We can clean restorable items using a number of specialized cleaning techniques. We also disinfect with antimicrobial treatments and remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.

6. Restoration
