Don’t let Water Damage Ruin Your Thanksgiving Plans in Mapleton, IA!

November 9th, 2018 · No Comments

Preparing to host Thanksgiving in your Mapleton, IA home has left you with little to no time to yourself. As you come home from yet another grocery shopping trip you find your kitchen has flooded! You stand there staring in disbelief until you notice the water pouring from beneath your refrigerator – the water supply line to your fridge has ruptured and is spewing water everywhere!

Your kitchen is a mess, and you certainly don’t need any added stress with the holiday fast approaching. Where do you turn to get your home restored quickly? The water damage restoration pros at ServiceMaster of Sooland are here to help. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for fridge water supply lines to fail, leaving you with a watery mess. Here’s what you can do when your fridge waterline breaks and how we can restore your home to its pre-loss condition.


  1. Stop the flow of water. As soon as you discover the leak, you need to stop the flow of water by turning off the water supply to your fridge. The longer the water is flowing into the home, the worse the damage becomes. If you don’t know how to do this, you’ll need to call a plumber. Once the water is shut off, it’s time to call our water damage restoration professionals. We’re available 24/7/365, so we can be on site quickly.
  2. Remove excess water. Once we arrive onsite, we’ll begin water extraction to remove any excess or standing water. This may seem like a simple step, but don’t try to do this yourself. We utilize special equipment that can quickly and thoroughly remove excess water. Performing water extraction quickly will help minimize water damage and make restoration much easier.
  3. Start water damage restoration. We’re here to help you with all your water damage restoration needs. From water extraction to cleanup and damage repair, we have the training and tools to get the job done right. Our technicians are armed with moisture detection tools that help them find any hidden moisture and make sure all the water is removed and your home is completely dry. If moisture remains in the walls, flooring, or in any other hidden crevasses, mold and mildew can begin to form. If that happens, don’t worry; ServiceMaster of Sooland can help with mold removal as well.


Don’t let water damage ruin your Thanksgiving plans in Mapleton, IA. For all of your water damage restoration needs, contact the experts at ServiceMaster of Sooland 24/7/365 at (402) 494-3188.

3 Tips for Preventing Fall Fire Damage in Onawa, IA

November 1st, 2018 · No Comments

Cooler weather means candles, space heaters, and curling up under warm blankets. However, cooler weather also opens Onawa, IA, homes to more opportunities for fire damage. While it’s something no homeowner likes to think about, housefires aren’t uncommon, but by taking some preventative measures, you can keep your home fire damage free this fall. The fire damage restoration professionals at ServiceMaster by Sooland are here to help with our top fire prevention tips!


  1. Keep flammable materials away from candles and other warmers. Once you’ve set up your fall décor and are ready to light candles to make your home nice and cozy make sure you do it safely. Your candles should be clear of anything flammable. Make sure there are no papers or anything else that can catch fire close to the candles when they are lite. It only takes a second for a curtain to catch fire and quickly spread through your home. Don’t put your home in jeopardy; make sure you burn your candles and use you wax warmers safely.
  2. Make sure your electric blankets are in good condition. If your favorite thing is to curl up under an electric blanket with a hot mug you wouldn’t be alone. Before you curl up under that blanket though, make sure the blanket is in good condition. Check for fraying wires or holes that could cause a fire or even burns when you’re using it. It’s best to make sure the blanket you’re using isn’t more than 5-10 years old as the newer blankets have automatic shut off to ensure that the blanket doesn’t over heat and cause burns or fires.
  3. Use space heaters safely. Space heaters are one of the most common causes of house fires. When using them, make sure you never leave your space heater unattended and keep it away from flammable materials.


While prevention is the best medicine, fires can still occur. If your Onawa, IA home has suffered fire damage, call ServiceMaster of Sooland a call as soon as possible. The faster you call the professionals the faster the damage can be restored. Leaving smoke, soot, and flame damage untreated allows for secondary damage to occur which can become permanent. Our technicians have the tools and training needed to make sure that the fire damage in your home is treated quickly and effectively.


Fire damage restoration is stressful and dangerous. Don’t try to do it yourself; contact the professionals at ServiceMaster of Sooland for immediate assistance at (402) 494-3188.

3 Tips for Preventing Water Damage in Sioux City, IA

May 9th, 2018 · No Comments

The May sun is shining down on your Sioux City, IA home on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. In a few weeks your friends and family will be gathering at your home for the Memorial Day weekend. You’re going to have the pool ready, people staying over, and drinks will be flowing. However, nothing puts a damper on a celebration like water damage. Do you know how to prevent water damage to your Sioux City, IA home and keep the party going?

  1. Make sure all your appliances are working properly. Appliances like your washing machine, refrigerator, or dish washer can cause unexpected water damage when the hoses become worn and break. Make sure you routinely inspect your appliances to ensure that no water is leaking.
  2. Check Outdoor Plumbing and Fixtures. You also need to check the stability of your pool, all related plumbing, outside water faucets, and any hoses connected to the faucets. A leaky hose or pool can cause large amounts of water to find its way into your home and create extensive water damage.
  3. Keep a close eye on kids and closely supervise adults that have enjoyed too many adult beverages. Both kids and inebriated adults love to play in and with water. From the kids throwing toys in the toilet to your uncle spraying a super soaker in the house, things can escalate quickly. A lack of supervision leads to a greater potential that you’re opening your Sioux City, IA home to water damage.

If you find that your Sioux City, IA home has suffered water damage over the Memorial Day weekend, your first call should be to ServiceMaster of Sooland. Our technicians will quickly arrive and begin the water damage restoration process.

By using advanced moisture detection technology our technicians can find water that has seeped into the walls and under the floors. This ensures that all the water is removed and the water extraction has been completed correctly.
