Minnesota Brings Unique Challenges!

When a pipe broke in this home, the water knocked out the furnace. During a Minnesota winter, this is not ideal. With temperatures so low, there are limited options to dry out water damage in a home or business. The only way the property could be dried in this situation was to utilize desiccant drying, as shown in the photo. A desiccant is engineered to keep vapor pressure low and maintain control of the drying chamber. It uses Silica Gel material embedded on the desiccant rotor to effectively dry applications such as hardwood floors, crawlspaces, and this Mankato home! Minnesota weather can wreak havoc on homes, but SERVPRO of Mankato / Owatonna is always up for the challenge.


Water was retained in the ceiling of this beautiful home after a pipe burst. With unique problems come unique solutions from our creative and expertly trained crew. Drying techniques such as what is shown in this picture can vary based on your individual needs, so having SERVPRO of Mankato/Owatonna's crew by your side will help you restore instead of replace. Removing this ceiling would have driven costs up for the customer, but our crew was able to keep the ceiling in tact. We are here to help with your unique situation involving water damage, fire damage, cleaning, and more in Mankato, Owatonna, North Mankato, Waseca, Eagle Lake, Mapleton, New Richland, Ellendale, Amboy, and Pemberton.


You may have seen sensational news reports that warn about the dangers of “black mold” or “toxic mold”. These reports can be alarming and confusing so it’s beneficial to get the facts to better understand mold.

Stachybotrys chartarum is the type of mold often called black mold, and it does produce allergens and irritants. However, many types of mold can produce allergens and irritants. Treat any mold with caution – stay out of affected areas and don’t touch or disturb the mold.

Mold can be dangerous to handle, and that's why we are here to help. If you suspect that your home or business has a mold problem, SERVPRO of Mankato/Owatonna has the training, equipment, and expertise to handle the situation. Understanding mold and having proper training to find and use a unique solution is one of the many reasons that SERVPRO of Mankato/Owatonna is the right choice for mold remediation in Waseca.


Navigation Challenges?

During the many storms that hit Minnesota the summer of 2018, roads were flooded, trees were not only down but split in half or uprooted.  Even downed power lines made it unsafe to travel in certain areas. This caused our technicians to stop at many crossroads and navigate another way. 

Home owners and business owners were always informed of any slight delay and through great communication we were able to reroute and get to our customer in great time. 

This day, our technicians remember having to reroute twenty miles out of the way to get to a customer with a flooded basement who had a sump pump failure. Our customer was so relieved we were able to get to him despite all the challenges and roadblocks.


SERVPRO of Mankato / Owatonna knows Disaster strikes without warning but we are ready for when it happens. 

Following the hurricane Florence that hit North Carolina, our crews and trucks were ready to help where help was needed. Stacking our vans with as much equipment as possible still didn't prepare our crew for all the people needing immediate assistance but fear not our technicians reached everyone they could through their dedication and hard work. 

We arrived in Jacksonville, North Carolina loaded with our vans and trucks to help in the aftermath. Many homes were flooded and were already growing harmful mold. 

Many homeowners didn't know what to do or if it was even safe to stay in their homes. We feel so fortunate to have been able to make an impact in helping the residents we did. 

SERVPRO of Mankato / Owatonna will help as many people as possible, near and far!


SERVPRO of Mankato / Owatonna likes it clean! We believe that a clean van not only feels good to drive in but it signifies us a cleaning and restoration company.

Why choose SERVPRO of Mankato / Owatonna?

The picture above describes why our technicians are so appreciated. They work hard at making it "Like it never even happened." 

When a home such as this one, was so devastated by a massive storm our technicians worked around the clock, alternating crews, to make sure this family could get back in their home as soon as possible. 

Our technicians worked day and night at taking down all the effected walls by water damage. We at SERVPRO of Mankato / Owatonna strive to dry the entire structure but unfortunately sometimes when walls are too wet it ruins the chance at saving sheet rock. 

This family will see a new fresh coat of paint before they know it, all thanks to our highly trained technicians and their tedious continued work.  

We at SERVPRO of Mankato / Owatonna are very pleased with our employees and show our gratitude for such great employees.
