SERVPRO Franchises Partner to Help the Community After Mega-Rain Hits Mankato

SERVPRO of Mankato/Owatonna

Mankato, MN – August 3, 2020 – SERVPRO® of Mankato/Owatonna, a local cleanup and restoration company, received hundreds of calls from community members experiencing flooding and water damage in their homes and businesses following the “Mega-Rain” that hit southern Minnesota on July 25-26. The franchise ended up calling on seven other SERVPRO® franchises that were willing to send the crews and equipment necessary to help the people of Mankato.

“When water damage strikes, it is important to act quickly. Being placed on a waitlist is not ideal in most situations. We knew we were going to need help in order to provide fast service to everyone in need.” said Ken Green, owner of SERVPRO® of Mankato/Owatonna.

“Being a part of the SERVPRO® Franchise System allows us to help so many more people than we could on our own. Seeing the SERVPRO® family come together to be Here to Help® in our community really inspires us to keep doing what we do best.”

A Mega-rain is an event in which more than 1000 square miles are covered by over six inches of rain. The torrential rainfall caused severe damage and flooding to many Mankato homes and businesses. SERVPRO® of Mankato/Owatonna, in partnership with seven other SERVPRO® Franchises, managed to restore over 300 water damaged properties following this major rainfall event.

“We are extremely grateful that your franchise allowed us to help the people of Mankato/Owatonna. Ken and his staff made the process smooth, and exemplified extreme professionalism in a difficult and trying time.” said Kully Olson, General Manager at SERVPRO® of Austin and Albert Lea.
