Water Damage It is All About the Equipment in Colorado Springs Water heaters can flood the room that they are in with many gallons of water. Call SERVPRO to remediate the damage and help you with the disaster.

SERVPRO Technicians Bring Equipment as Well as the Generators Necessary to Remediate Your Property

Your day takes a whole different focus when your water heater splits its bottom, spilling water throughout your utility room. As much as you want to try to take care of the problem on your own, the sheer magnitude of 50 or more gallons of water in a confined space, with more flowing if you fail to turn off the water main, makes you dial for help. The team at SERVPRO is always ready for this type of challenge.
 
Not all water removal issues in Colorado Springs are dramatic. Sometimes it is the most mundane equipment failure that gets your attention. Your hard-working water heater provided its last hot showers, laundry, and dishwashing yesterday. Today it needs our team to dig down deep and give you back your basement using our skills and powerful water removal equipment.
 
SERVPRO has one mission -- to put the pieces back together after you experience an unexpected disaster. The first task after a water heater leaks is to remove all that water. We have powerful, truck mounted pumps and extractors that make water removal manageable. When we arrive, we assess the situation, turn off the water if it is still flowing, and then work with you and your insurer to take charge of returning your dwelling to preloss condition.
 
If the electricity cut out during the flood, we rely on our truck for the power to pump and vacuum out the water. We make certain there is no danger of shocking you or our staff during this stage. After the majority of the water is gone, our certified technicians set up air movers to continue the drying process. The condition of flooring and walls is evaluated to help make the choice between restoration or tear out and replacement.
 
Restoration is always preferred by us as it limits your costs and returns the affected areas back to your use faster. The key often is whether you called us in time. If the water only stood for a few hours before we removed it, chances are better that professional drying completes the job. On the other hand, if water remained for more than a day or two before we arrived, you risk secondary damage of structures and belongings. The original flood of water from the heater was clean. Every hour it waits for removal gives microbial growth a chance to complicate matters for the SERVPRO staff.
 
Keep things simple when you need water removal by contacting SERVPRO of South Colorado Springs immediately. Our truck rolls out as soon as possible after your call to (719) 574-2789.
