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.
