This past weekend, the Merle Hay Mall in Des Moines, Iowa experienced a water main break that flooded various stores within the mall. Luckily, the four main department stores located within the mall were still operational. When called upon, ServiceMaster By Rice happily accepted the request to help with the water removal and water damage repair within the mall.


Central Iowa forecasts this week show that the brutal cold will slowly fade away to temperatures in the mid-40s before dropping back down to what could be single digits again by Friday. Since we have large amounts of snow on the ground, we can expect some potential flooding to happen later this week. If you haven’t had the chance, read our last blog of ways to properly prepare your house to battle against the troubles of snow thaw flooding.
