Water Damage Gone too long

Water Damage Gone too long

Homeowner comes home to wet carpet. Calls us at SERVPRO of Cottage Grove/ Woodbury and asks us to come out. We start to notice that she had a loss prior once we opened up the wall. Here is an example of what could happen behind your walls if a water damage goes too long.

Mold is hidden

Mold is hidden

Here is a person's bed that they pulled out off the wall after having it there for a long time and discovered they had mold. This is an example of a window not properly installed and it leaked down the wall over a long period of time which made the drywall wall moist and eventually mold up. This is not a covered loss by insurance due to the long time the mold has been growing. Please check your walls and windows throughout the year to ensure you don't have mold creeping up on you. If you need an assessment please call SERVPRO of Cottage Grove/ Woodbury at 651-779-1000

Ice Dam

Ice Dam

"An ice dam is a ridge of ice that forms at the edge of a roof and prevents melting snow (water) from draining off the roof. The water that backs up behind the dam can leak into a home and cause damage to walls, ceilings, insulation, and other areas. Figure 1 shows a cross section of a home with an ice dam."

If not taken care of properly you will not only have outside damage, but you will have major inside damage. We at SERVPRO of Cottage Grove/ Woodbury are always here to help! Please call us at 651-779-1000

Garage Ceiling Falls down

Garage Ceiling Falls down

Imagine you wake up in the morning to a loud CRASH noise. You run out to the garage and see the entire ceiling has fallen down onto all your belongings and vehicle in the garage.  

This was caused from a water loss in the roof that caused all the insulation and drywall to fall down due to a lot of saturation. This can occur during a heavy rain storm, a lot of snow on your roof that eventually causes it to fall.

Mold Damage in your home

Mold Damage in your home

This is what mold looks like on a ceiling in a home that wasn't ventilated properly. If you have a lot of moisture in your home we would suggest getting a dehumidifier to help eliminate the chance of mold starting in your home. Dehumidifiers take out moisture in the air and in your home.

Mold can also occur when you have had a previous water loss that wasn't taken care of properly.  Please remember even if you think it is a small water loss, you want to make sure it is dried out properly or you will have mold. Most insurances do not cover mold.

Heavy Rains

Heavy Rains

When you get a lot of rain coming down, it isn't a good idea to open your storm door. 

Here we have a storm door that was opened during a heavy rain storm. As you can see the water line is up a few inches from the door. When you open the door all that water will come rushing in and go throughout your whole basement. 

Heavy rains can leave your basement full of water at times. Please remember to make sure during a heavy rain storm all doors are closed and your sump pump (if you have one) is working properly.

Under the sink leak

Under the sink leak

This is a store that had an unfortunate pipe burst under the sink in their bathroom. We had to open up the vent and blow air into it using an air mover and a dehu to dry it out properly. This took two days and they were back in action.

Even the smallest little hole in a pipe could cause a huge loss.
