All the Rain is Causing Basement Flooding! Water Damage Restoration in Sioux City, IA

April 10th, 2017 · No Comments

Spring has finally arrived in Sioux City, IA. The ground has thawed, and except for some isolated piles, the snow is all but gone. For the past several days it has been raining, and puddles are forming in your back yard, creating a wet, sloppy mess.

You had to go out of town for work for 4 days and finally made it back home. You walk into your Sioux City, IA, home, and it smells a bit odd.

There’s been enough rain to saturate the backyard and create huge puddles which have spilled into the window wells, and now that water is steadily dripping and flowing into your finished basement. You’d meant to get the outside edging done, window caulking replaced, and increase the grade up to the house last summer, but never got around to doing it. Now you’re paying the price as your basement is slowly turning into a swimming pool before your eyes!

The Results of Turning the Thermostat Too Low: Burst Pipe Cleanup in Wayne, NE

January 27th, 2017 · No Comments

Shortly after Christmas, the winter weather in Wayne, NE, took its usual turn for the bitterly cold. The only sensible thing for you to do was escape to somewhere warm and tropical. You and your other half hopped on the first plane and flew off into the sunset. You could relax knowing that you did everything you were supposed to do when leaving for an extended vacation. You set the lights on a timer, you stopped your mail, and you lowered the thermostat. Now you’re back in Wayne, NE, heading back home excited to once again sleep in your own bed. You hit the garage door opener, but the garage door doesn’t budge. Your husband hops out to see what the problem is and discovers a large layer of ice holding the door down. After lots of work and an equal amount of questionable language, the door is free and making its way up. As the door slowly rises you notice a small tidal wave flowing out from under the door. It turns out that when you lowered the thermostat, you accidentally lowered it too low and now a pipe in the basement has frozen and burst. The basement is a swimming pool, and from the looks of it, so was the garage until the door opened. So much for being relaxed: now you have to deal with water removal and a house to dry out.

At ServiceMaster of Sooland in Wayne, NE, we’re here to help you with all of your water damage restoration needs. We know that getting burst pipe cleanup done quickly is a must.
