Fire, Smoke and Soot Restoration Services

SERVPRO Franchise Professionals can help provide a solution to your property's fire damage needs.

  • Structural Cleaning - After a smoke or fire damage, ceilings, walls, woodwork, carpeting and floors will often need a thorough cleaning.  Our trained technician will pretest to determine the extent of damage, and then use specific equipment and cleaning solutions required to clean and protect the different types of surfaces found in your facility.  Depending on the amount of soot, we may even be able to reduce the cost of recovery by cleaning the surfaces.  This could eliminate the need for repainting or refinishing.
  • Contents Cleaning - We will professionally clean and deodorize all of the restorable contents in affected areas.  This may include area rugs, furniture, draperies and upholstery.  We begin by carefully inspecting and testing all fabrics and contents to determine which cleaning method to provide.  Additionally, we will provide an inventory list and pictures of all "to be claimed" items if requested.
  • Deodorization - We also provide specialized services to rid your home or business of offensive odors left by fire or smoke damage.  We do not merely cover up lingering odors with a fragrance, we will seek out the source of the odor and remove it.

Remember, no job is too large or small, with over 1700 locations SERVPRO has the ability to pool resources to make it "Like it never even happened."

Local Convenience Store suffers major damage after cooler fails in Wadena, MN.

2/24/2020 (Permalink)

Mold contaminated drywall and insulation on wall after commercial cooler was removed. Removed commercial cooler exposes undiscovered leak that created major mold contamination.

Undiscovered leaks can wreak havoc to your business.

SERVPRO of Brainerd and Park Rapids can help should this happen to your business. Our trained Franchise Professionals are equipped with the equipment and knowledge to protect the rest of your structure.

While any intrusion of water into your business can result in mold growth, undiscovered intrusions can result in increased risk of harmful mold growth.

Suspect Mold at your Wadena business?

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from home or business.  Some restoration businesses advertise "mold removal" and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy.

Consider the following facts:

Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or HVAC systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.

Mold spores thrive on moisture.  Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water.  These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.  When left undetected, these colonies can cause substantial damage to your facility.

Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed.  Otherwise, the mold may return.

Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.

Should you suspect or see mold give us a call at 218-568-6923.
