Mankato, MN, is no stranger to the impacts of torrential rains, flash floods, and high water levels. Residents in Mankato are still recovering from the rainstorms of this fall, in which ten inches or more fell in some areas in just a handful of hours. The subsequent flood damage repair and water damage cleanup were part of every conversation among neighbors and government officials for weeks. Depending on your experience, and especially if you were spared the trauma of a flood disaster this time, ServiceMaster of Mankato and Waseca would like to remind you that we can help make your flood disaster recovery easier, because rest assured, there will be a next time.
Why is it better to have a disaster restoration service handle your water damage repair needs?
Time: We will move quickly, arrive promptly, and begin to work on water removal, debris cleanup, and the drying of your home and basement before standing water causes any more damage to the structure and its contents or increases the risk of mold infestation. In addition to mold damage, any sewage backup can put your home and family at risk for health problems, not to mention a serious odor problem. Any delays, such as while you might be out looking for pumps or fans to rent, or while you’re dealing with family necessities, will make the problem worse.
Equipment and technology: The do-it-yourself school of flood damage repair and restoration is, at best, problematic. If you have water in your basement and are looking for pumps or fans, it stands to reason that many other homeowners are also out renting them, limiting their supply. ServiceMaster has plenty of both and if we run short, we can call in for more equipment from affiliated ServiceMaster offices in our system.
Experience: You might have had a flooded basement before, or perhaps one of your relatives or a neighbor is on hand for advice, which may be reliable or not. Our crews are specially trained in water damage remediation and flood disaster repair. We do this many times a year and have seen and managed a wide range of circumstances. We know what to do and we’ll do it as quickly as possible. We don’t have to ask for advice or look up DIY instructions on the Internet.
Speed, expertise, and technology – all great reasons to call ServiceMaster of Mankato and Waseca for water damage restoration. And the best reason of all: you can focus on your family and leave the flood cleanup to us.
