This picture shows our SERVPRO of Rochester van after taking out affected materials from a home. The recent storms have cause extensive damage to whole basements. We always take moisture readings and all materials in the home from ceiling to walls and floors. These readings tell us the moisture in the material and then we go by IICRC standards to determine which materials need to be removed.


Storm damage like we have been having here in MN has devastating affects on homes. This picture shows what SERVPRO of Rochester technicians saw after taking out affected materials from the flood. 


This picture was taken at a home SERVPRO of Rochester was called to help with as their basement was flooded. The water was powerful and mighty as the recent storms caused so much damages to homes and businesses.

Unexpected water in basement

No one wants or expects to come home or wake up after a thunderstorm to find your carpets squishy and items on carpet wet along with the furniture. There are times when these superstorms come through dumping tons of water in a very short time period. 

This picture is one that was taken after a recent storm.  We came in after a sump pump failure and removed all the carpeting and some other affected materials.

Sump Pump Failures

SERVPRO of Rochester has seen a lot of these sump pump failures in the last 24 hours.  Rochester, Minnesota received over 5" of rain in a time period of 6 hours.  This resulted in flooding of roadways, basements, and sump pumps to fail.  Even homes with sump pumps with back-up pumps couldn't keep up to the water. These storms are common in Minnesota especially in June. 

If you find your self facing a wet basement because your sump pump isn't working there are a few things to know about what you should do. Check to make sure your sump pump is plugged in. If it is and you determine that the sump pump is not working, you will need to get another sump pump up and going to remove the water until SERVPRO of Rochester can arrive.  Then, begin removing any valuables and items to a dry place.  Next, you should call your insurance agent and ask for SERVPRO of Rochester services.


This picture shows some of the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that we at SERVPRO of Rochester use of jobs.  The white suit worn over your work clothes and even have shoe covers with a hood all in one piece.  The other PPE in the picture is a half face respirator.  We use these often and have different cartridges to use depending on the job. 


I don't always to get to see every job SERVPRO of Rochester completes.  However, I am proud as I scroll through the photos to see how careful our technicians are and how nice they leave the affected area.  This picture shows a living room after the carpet was removed and fan placed for drying the affected area.


DON'T WAIT TOO LONG to call SERVPRO of Rochester. 

This ceiling picture is at a local commercial building where there was a broken pipe.  Water gushed out and the ceiling tiles were able to hold the water was too heavy.

Lower Kitchen Cabinet in Rental Unit

Another great example of why SERVPRO cleaning products are the best!  We used Wall And All Cleaner with some deodorizer and the smoke and grease came off with ease! The photo was taken at a unit where the tenant was a heavy smoker.

The left side of this photo shows how this rental cabinet after using SERVPRO cleaning product. The right side is how we found the entire apartment.  The former tenant was a heavy smoker.


The picture is of a home that SERVPRO of Rochester helped after a water intrusion.  There are two main reasons that we use containment.  SERVPRO of Rochester uses containment to avoid the rest of the home from becoming dusty. Also,  we use containment to reduce the area that we are drying. 

Protecting the Customer's Home

This picture shows how SERVPRO of Rochester installed green flooring protection on a customer's stairs.  We put this down so that as materials are removed and taken out to be disposed of that water, dirt, etc aren't tracked onto the carpet.

Delaminated Carpet

This carpet was delaminated when SERVPRO of Rochester was checking to see if the carpet was salvageable. It was determined after looking at the back of the carpet that the back was peeling away from the carpet and not able to be salvaged.

Wood Flooring Drying System

SERVPRO of Rochester has an in place drying mat system for wood floors.  Sometimes it's best to try drying the wood floor to see if it can be saved.  This system removes the water and moisture from the wood without damaging the floor.  Technicians monitor the moisture levels daily and move the mats around to ensure all areas of the floor is drying.

Fire Damaged Home

This picture was taken when SERVPRO of Rochester arrived at this home.  The home had an electrical fire and the home had to be completely taken down to the studs and frame.  This can be a long process for the homeowners.  SERVPRO of Rochester is here to help you.  We packed up the contents of this home, brought it back to our shop.  There we inventoried it, cleaned, deodorized and ozoned all the contents.

Broken Pipe

This winter was a rough one!  SERVPRO of Rochester has seen many of these copper pipes that burst and were broken.  SERVPRO of Rochester works directly with insurance companies, adjusters and agents.  We document the cause of each loss.  

Dirty Duct Vents

This is a picture of a residential duct vent.  You can see the dust and dander on the inside of the duct.
