Be Prepared!

Don't let the pretty look of a winter scene fool you! The icicles coming off of the house with snow around the bushes of the house is a beautiful site. However, this beautiful site can also turn into a costly disaster.

Ice dams form when warmer air melts snow on the roof into water that is dammed behind still-frozen ice. When the trapped water cannot safely flow or run into the gutter system, it can back flow under the roof’s shingles and into the structures interior areas.

There are several common locations for ice dams to appear.

Look for them in the following areas:

1. The edge of your roof.

2. The gutter - remember, ice dams as little as one inch thick can cause big problems.

3. Behind the gutter on the fascia. 

4. Through the soffit vents or through the soffit itself.

5. On the siding or exterior wall surface.

6. Inside the home.  Look for areas on the ceiling, windows, or door frames where the leaked in.

If you see water damage to your ceiling areas, often times in the deep cold spells, it can be a result of an ice dam.

If this does occur, contact SERVPRO of St. Cloud to help. We can have our trained service team come out and access the situation.

We are able to dry out the interior of your home and repair other damages that may have been caused as a result of it.

Central Minnesota Storm Damage

Emergency Preparedness 
Emergency preparedness is no longer the only concern of states like California with earthquakes or our friends who live in the area known as "Tornado Alley." For us Minnesotan's, winter storms and blizzards are common; knowing what to do during an emergency is an important part of being prepared.

Blizzards, heavy snow, freezing rain and sub-zero temperatures hit hard and frequently across our state. Even if you think you are safe and warm at home, a winter storm can become dangerous if the power is cut off. With a little planning, you can protect yourself and your family from the many hazards of winter weather, both at home and on the road.

BE AWARE OF THE FORECAST

  • Winter Weather Advisory: Weather conditions may alert us to know that we are forecasted for snow, blowing and drifting snow, freezing drizzle or rain.  Knowing the conditions that are coming, will help us in being prepared. 

BE PREPARED AT HOME

If we are predicted of having a snow storm and being "stuck" in our house for an extended period of time, make sure to have some essentials on hand. This can include the following:

  • Keep a radio nearby. 
  • Have plenty of flashlights on hand. Make sure to have batteries.
  • Have candles and matches available in case of a power outage.

If Minnesota suffers a winter storm, our home can be compromised. We can have ice dams on our roofs that result in a leak inside. If that occurs, SERVPRO of Elk River, Becker and Big Lake is able to help dry out your home.

Messy Situations

Minnesota weather can be unpredictable when it comes to the winter temperatures and snow falls.

That is why it is important to stay educated when the winter weather can be so unpredictable. The changes in the weather can cause damages to residential and commercial properties. It can cause pipes to expand and burst. The expanding and bursting of a pipe in a residential or commercial property can cause significant flooding if one is not prepared.

Prepare:

To prepare for this type of weather, one should make sure to inspect their pipes. If a pipe needs replacing, be sure to do this before the cold weather hits.

Prevent:

To prevent large water losses and damage, tag your main water shut off. One should tag their main water shut off to help everyone in the home know where to shut off the water if a pipe is to burst. Hopefully by doing this, one will be able to shut off their water immediately minimizing the loss or damage.

Take Action:

If the unpredictable winter over hauls all of your preparing and preventing, take action by calling SERVPRO of Elk River, Becker and Big Lake immediately and we will be there to assist you. We area available 24/7 to ensure that one can be helped at any hour that they need.

Any Storm Damage

Minnesota storms can range anywhere from hailstorms, flooding, and ice storms. If you have been impacted by a storm, SERVPRO of Elk River, Becker and Big Lake can help. We understand what it takes to get your home, business, and life back to normal.

Tips to Keep in Mind:

  • You and your loved ones have weathered the storms and now it is time to survey the damage and move towards the next phase – clean up and fix up. You, of course, need to make it a point to work with a professional to help put the pieces back together, including helping assess the damage. This is important to do before you begin to clean up or pick through items that are salvageable because you do not want to put yourself in harm’s way.
  • Ensure you have the proper estimate and other details in place to take care of your homeowner’s insurance. Things can seem so hectic after you have survived any type of storm damage. The last thing you want is to miss out on something that is key to get your insurance to cover the damages and repairs. Missing out on something or, even worse, missing the deadline could mean you have to pay for your own repair costs out of your own pocket.

Parts of your home that could suffer damage and require repairs include:

  • Siding
  • Roofing
  • Fencing
  • Decks or Patios
  • Tree Removal

Damage can happen to the interior of your home if you have suffered more extensive damage. That is why it is important to make sure that you are working with highly trained professionals.

SERVPRO of Elk River, Becker and Big Lake specializes in all aspects of storm damage. As we provide mitigation services to dry out your home, another team of SERVPRO of Elk River, Becker and Big Lake can provide construction services and rebuild the areas that are damaged.
