May 1st, 2017 · No Comments

With the winter thaw and spring rains, moisture is abound! The good news is that warmer temperatures are near and it’ll be time to get outside and enjoy the sunshine. The bad news is that this moisture caused by the winter thaw and spring rains can cause flooding in the lower levels of your business requiring water damage restoration services. ServiceMaster of Rochester stands ready to help you restore your commercial property from water damage in the Byron, MN area in no time.

It’s not just the winter thaw and spring rains that can wreak havoc on your property. Burst pipes, cracks in foundations, and Mother Nature all tend to do harm as well. If you are hoping to prevent a headache with your commercial property and are trying to protect it from water damage, consider the following:

  1. Flooding: The winter thaw and those frigid Midwest temperatures from earlier months can cause small cracks in your foundation through which water can enter. If left unchecked, your property may be subject to flooding. That’s why it is important to keep an eye on the foundation and lower level of your property. If you notice anything that just doesn’t seem right, act quickly and get it fixed.
  2. April showers: Although April showers bring May flowers, those showers can also leave you with unwanted surprises, such as water in your lower level. Do some preventative checks to ensure there are no noticeable cracks in your foundation and that your sump pumps are working properly.
  3. Overflow of gutters: If you didn’t get your gutters cleaned last fall and had hoped to get them cleaned early this spring but just didn’t get around to it, you may want to set some time aside. Overflow of gutters can result in rainfall going right down to your foundation instead of away from the property like they are intended to do. And, it may not be a bad idea to check and clean your gutters mid-summer as well.
  4. Burst pipes: No one ever plans for pipes to have problems. After all, they are tough and sturdy, right? That’s not always the case. Pipes can get worn down and spring a leak or burst, leaving you with a huge mess. Several times throughout the year, do a quick inspection of your pipes and avoid the problem before it starts.

If you have had the unfortunate circumstance of any of the above and are in need of water restoration services in the Byron, MN area, contact ServiceMaster of Rochester today.
