Understanding How Water Damage in Woodbury Occurs Directs the Needed Restoration Actions.

Water damage impacts homes daily, and because there are so many types and causes, our water restoration division is among the most diversely trained and experienced of our recovery roster. We can help when disasters strike.

Leaks in the Plumbing

Plumbing leaks have been named the leading cause of water damage to Woodbury homes and others throughout the area our SERVPRO team services. Because of the urgency of these situations to stop the flow of water and identify all affected areas, we respond fast 24/7 with mitigative strategies. We use sophisticated tools to track moisture movement, such as:

  • Thermal imagery
  • Hygrometers
  • Surface moisture meters
  • Probing moisture detectors

Faulty Appliances

Many water-fed or condensation-producing appliances in the household can cause and continue water damage for area homes. Washing machines and dishwashers have multiple seals and connections that could contribute to structural harm. Other options, like water heaters or air conditioners, can begin malfunctioning as they age and deteriorate.

Burst/Frozen Pipes

Freezing is a concern for many homes in the winter. With under-insulated pipes or low temperatures in some regions of the house with plumbing exposed, the threats of freezing water inside of these lines grows. Several hundreds of gallons of water can flow onto the floors when pipes burst until the supply is severed.


Accidents can account for a considerable volume of the water damage incidents that impact homes. From overflowing to the mismanagement of water-fed appliances like the dishwasher or washing machines, even an isolated incident could have surface water spreading throughout the room and adjacent spaces. Our mitigation team must work fast to manage these developing threats.

Several types of water damage incidents could impact homes and businesses in the area. As quickly as these events can affect properties, professionals of our SERVPRO of Woodbury, Cottage Grove team are ready 24/7 to help. Call now at (651) 314-4631.
