The word deluge brings to mind great floods and walls of water inundating acres of land and destroying all in its path. Yet the word also refers to a situation where water is simply overwhelming.

It doesn’t take much water to do serious damage. That’s where we come in. ServiceMaster of Mankato and Waseca is your water removal and water damage repair specialist.

The last thing on your mind during a busy summer is inspecting your house for areas water may intrude. Most of the time it’s something amiss that isn’t even visible. If you’ve done some landscaping this spring, added a wall, or taken out some trees, it may have made just enough of a difference in the contour of your yard to send water a different direction, or to retain water in new areas of your property.
