Water damage can happen at any time, and rainwater intrusion is a common challenge for Aitkin businesses. Our Aitkin, Carlton, and West St. Louis Counties team mitigates and restores water damage using powerful, industrial-grade water extraction and drying equipment. Here are some tips from the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety for protecting your business from heavy rain:

Follow these basic preventive maintenance steps to prevent leaks and ensure roof drainage systems will work properly to protect your business from rain throughout the year.

  1. Inspect and clean the roof drainage system at least twice a year, ideally during spring and fall. This includes all gutters, interior drains, and scuppers.
  2. Trim trees. Keep trees trimmed and away from the roof to prevent branches from rubbing against the roof and leaves from accumulating and clogging the drainage system
  3. Remove debris
    1. Remove loose objects and accumulated debris—including anything left by contractors—from the roof that could end up in the drainage system
    2. Also, check under and around all roof-mounted equipment, satellite dishes, antennas, and solar panels for debris that could disrupt the drainage system’s water flow or cause ponding
