Water in the House: SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie helps when you have water trouble in your home or office

Water Damage Water in the House: SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie helps when you have water trouble in your home or office If you have standing water, flood damage, or other water issues in your home or office, SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie can help.

Water damage is a common occurrence in homes and buildings.  You may experience an event with water from a heavy rain, flooding in the area, a broken sprinkler head, or even from an over-flowing toilet.  Whatever the cause of the water problem, SERVPRO can help.  Water damage is not to be taken lightly, as water can cause damage to flooring, wood trim, drywall and other parts of a structure. When water is standing in a basement, rooms, or even in a bathroom, it seeps into crevices and travels under flooring, trim and baseboards.  If not properly dried, that water can create irreparable damage, even cause mold.  Of course, the amount of water needs to be something beyond a common spill, although even a small, steady leak that is not stopped and dried can create big problems.

When to contact SERVPRO of Edina / Eden Prairie for water damage repairs and drying:

  • Standing water in the basement
  • Flood water has entered the house or building
  • Visible damage to a window, door or walls, with water pooling in areas
  • Roof damage that has allowed wind driven rain to enter the structure
  • Sewer water or other plumbing backup
  • A long-term leak has been discovered

If there is a question of whether water can be damaging your home or building, SERVPRO professionals are trained at identifying and surveying the damage any water may have created.  Most importantly, we can remove the water and clean, dry, and professionally repair water damage.
