ServiceMaster of Mankato/Waseca provides water drying and removal services in the Mankato, MN area.
If the last few years have taught us anything in Minnesota, it’s that the weather is becoming less predictable than ever. Near record-breaking rainfall earlier in the year gave way to a dry spell, both extremes causing problems for farmers and others. This climate uncertainty is all the more reason why you should keep ServiceMaster of Mankato/Waseca’s contact information handy. Heavy rains and flash floods can mean an overnight disaster if your home isn’t completely prepared. If the worst does happen, we are your best bet for water removal and floor drying in Mankato and Waseca, whether it be vinyl, hardwood or carpet.
The best time to inspect your property and perform preventative maintenance is while the weather is relatively warm and dry. When folks hear the words flooding or basement water, they generally think about sewer backups, failed sump pumps, or nearby rivers overflowing their banks. It’s just as likely to be caused by cracks in a foundation, damaged or lose water pipes or faucets, or openings in basement windows, vents or uncovered window wells. Check the drainage and slope in your yard. Any changes in landscaping or erosion in the terrain from last year may spell trouble during a rainy fall season or a quickly melting snowfall later on.
You don’t need much water in your home to cause damage. An inch or less can damage flooring and cause mold and mildew if not removed quickly. The longer materials remain saturated, the greater the damage. Soil or sewage in the flood water just makes things worse. If you encounter home flooding this season, act fast. Call us right away for water extraction and drying of your floors in Mankato, Waseca and surrounding communities. We have all the right equipment at hand and can respond and be working in far less time than it would take you to rent equipment and try to manage a disastrous situation on your own.
ServiceMaster of Mankato and Waseca provides tile cleaning, grout cleaning, and other specialty cleaning services
Modern ceramics have made great strides in usefulness and functionality compared to the unfinished stone flooring of many years ago. And, they are the ideal alternative to wood or carpet in high activity areas. Still, tile does become stained and soiled, not to mention the grout surrounding the tile which needs to be refreshed more frequently. As tile is often used in high traffic areas in the home and most areas in business, the need for professional attention can become quite apparent over time. ServiceMaster of Mankato and Waseca can be the answer for tile cleaning in your home or business.
Stains can come from organic or chemical spills including solvents, paints, tomato sauce, and other acidic foods. Some can result in surface discoloration, while others can seep below the surface coatings on the tiles and require extra effort to remove. If not sealed properly, grout can readily absorb liquids and become discolored. In the case of bathrooms, the grout can absorb urine and give off a continuous odor as well. In heavy-use kitchens – at home or in restaurants or schools – the grout can retain odors and stains, making for an unpleasant appearance and a distasteful, lingering smell.
Spot fixes can be individually done, but the last thing you want to do is spend time on your hands and knees with a toothbrush. Tile cleaning is a primary specialty of ServiceMaster. We have the range of training and techniques, as well as cleaning solutions and equipment to match any type of hard surface floor. We’ll return your tile to its original color and refresh the grout, providing protection to keep it that way. For the best value in professional tile cleaning in Mankato, Waseca, and St. Peter and surrounding areas, call ServiceMaster today.
