What Should I Do if My Ceiling Leaks Severely After a Storm in Woodbury?
SERVPRO Can Assist with Ceiling Repairs from Water Damages in Woodbury
Towards the end of the summer season, several places across the country see severe storms caused by the hurricane and monsoon seasons. Even though Minnesota is safe from the vicious hurricanes and tropical storms that strike the southern part of the county, severe rainstorms can still be prevalent. For example, during a thunderstorm, the wind can get intense and rip off portions of your roof's shingles.
When dealing with flood damage cleanup in Woodbury, our SERVPRO technicians often find that leaking roofs are the source of the issue. Once there is a hole in your roof, the rain can pour into your structure and start to cause damage. And sometimes, it is not possible to seal the gap in your roof right away due to the storm. Therefore, it is possible that enough water can enter your house to where there is standing water on your flooring.
Anytime water from the outside builds up on your flooring, any porous materials will have to be removed and replaced due to the possibility of contamination. If the water gets deep enough, your drywall may also have to be removed or cut two or more feet up from the floor. Luckily, SERVPRO can help in an emergency with the following services:
- Repair Leaking Roofs from Storms

Anytime you find more than two inches of standing water on your floors after a storm, we can use a submersible pump to remove the water. We can then start assessing which of your building materials and contents that we need to discard. Next, we can treat your other building materials, such as wall studs or subflooring, with specialized disinfectants.
If your roof ever gets ripped off by the wind, call SERVPRO of Woodbury, Cottage Grove at (651) 314-4631.
