Storm Damage Excess Rain Can Spell Big Trouble For Your Minneapolis Home! Day or night, we're always open to take your call and send assistance to your home.

Excess Rain Can Allow the Mississippi River to Cause Flood Damage in Your Home

Most storms that pass over your home won't be the cause of flood damage. However, when it rains enough to flood the river that your house was built beside, that can lead to problems for your home. Excess rain allowed for the Mississippi River to flood and that water rose up enough to flood the front entryway of your house. It is fortunate in these situations that there is local help close by to assist you during your time of need.

The best thing that you could do for your home is to call for professional Minneapolis-based flood damage remediation services as quickly as possible. Swiftly getting professionals to your home to remove the excess water can prevent further damages from occurring, such as mold. Unfortunately, as soon as the water begins to flood, you are on a time-limit to remediate it. If you are able to address it swiftly, it is more likely that the remediation can go smoothly and without any complications. The longer that it takes, the more likely it is that you may have to deal with further complications.

When you contact SERVPRO, we always attempt to arrive at your residence as promptly as we possibly can. Our skilled experts can come to your home with advanced equipment designed to remove water as quickly as possible and immediately begin to work on remediating your entryway.

Our IICRC-certified SERVPRO techs can employ the use of devices such as wet/dry vacuums and extractors to remove the excess water. If the base of your carpeted stairs has been affected, extractors can be particularly useful, as they have a heating element inside that dries as they remove water.

Once the visible water has been removed, SERVPRO can use moisture meters to check if the moisture levels inside your home are at the appropriate level. SERVPRO can also use thermal-imaging technology to search for any hidden pockets of water that had gone unnoticed. With the knowledge these devices provide, we can decide to either continue with drying equipment or finish the remediation job.

If a flooded river causes damage to your home, never hesitate to get in touch with help. Dial (952) 473-4837 to speak with a representative of SERVPRO of Minnetonka. Day or night, we're always open to take your call and send assistance to your home.
