Damage to your Burr Oak, Michigan Business

Commercial Damage to your Burr Oak, Michigan Business Let SERVPRO of Cass and St. Joseph Counties get you back up and running!

When business owners visualize water damage, they often picture a massive storm wiping out power lines, flooding offices, and shutting down business for days at a time. It is true that commercial water damage is often the result of floods and water that stems from weather events and storms, however, many entrepreneurs and business space renters forget that storms and severe weather aren't the only causes of floods and water damage. Here are some of the typical causes of water damage to commercial buildings:

  1. Malfunctioning sprinkler systems

Some older office and retail buildings still have outdated sprinkler systems that work in conjunction with fire protection systems. While such sprinklers can come in handy during a fire emergency, they can also cause commercial flood damage if they are faulty or in need of replacement. This could easily damage inventory and business assets.

  1. Damaged appliances and equipment

This cause of commercial flood damage is more common in restaurants and catering facilities, as well as any business that has appliances and equipment that make use of water. If the appliance fails and sends water across your building, especially during late hours when no one is around, you may come back to work and face a water emergency.

  1. Broken pipes and plumbing

Similar to a residence, if the plumbing system in your workplace fails, water damage could be the result.

  1. Backed up sewer lines

This is another cause of commercial water damage that often catches business owners by surprise. Should the sewer line to your building back up or become damaged, realize the potential dangers of contaminated category 3 water, which can cause health effects and ruin products and office furnishings.

If your business has suffered commercial water damage, SERVPRO of Cass and St. Joseph Counties will get you back up and running again! Call us today at (269) 273-8777.  We make water damage “Like it never even happened.”

Snow and Salt Damaging your Carpets?

1/2/2018 (Permalink)

The winter season can be harsh on your carpets. Snow, ice, and salt are constantly being brought into homes and businesses. Here are some tips to help prevent water and salt stains on your carpet.

  • Use two welcome mats. One to wipe your feet on outside, and one to wipe your feet on the inside.
  • Use long runners or winter rugs along any high traffic areas in your home or business.
  • Keep up with snow removal around your sidewalks and porches. The less snow outside your home or business, the less snow that can be brought in.
  • Vacuum frequently, especially in high traffic areas.
  • Have a spot removal program in place. Whether it's weekly or monthly, deep cleaning and removing stains will lengthen the life of your carpets.

Commercial Has Your Sturgis Business Had Their Carpets Cleaned Yet? Leave it to SERVPRO of Cass & St. Joseph Counties to get your carpets looking as good as new!

It is a good rule-of-thumb to have your carpets professionally cleaned at least once or twice a year. How often you get them cleaned is going to depend on the color, traffic, and soil build-up of your carpets. Carpets are known to trap dust, dirt, gasses, pet hair, and other soils. We recommend that don’t wait till your carpet looks really dirty before cleaning. Since the dirt builds up in layers, you don’t want the dirt hiding below the surface to become lodged and damage your carpet. SERVPRO of Cass & St. Joseph Counties offers multiple cleaning options that fit your upholstery or carpet in your business. Some of our specialized cleaning methods include:



  • Bonnet Cleaning: A less aggressive method for short piled carpets.

  • Hot Water Extraction: A deeper cleaning method for all carpet types.

  • Deluxe Precondition and Rinse: Helps restore deeply soiled areas.

  • Showcase Premier Cleaning: The most thorough cleaning method in the industry.

  • Dry Cleaning: When color-fastness is an issue.
