Floods in Colorado Springs Need Fast Responses to Mitigate Damages

Flash floods happen unexpectedly and at any time of the year in Colorado Springs. Snow cover cannot guarantee that flooding cannot happen during the winter, just as a drought cannot prevent one from affecting a neighborhood.

Homeowners in Colorado Springs often find extensive flood damage within their homes after these short-lived flooding events. Flooding brings many problems to your front door, all of which we can help you resolve. We know that floodwaters carry parasites and pathogens that can cause illnesses in people and their animal companions, so we carry out extensive cleaning and sanitation efforts to rid your home of tangible debris and any accompanying microbes.

Just as our Applied Microbial Remediation Technician (AMRT) ensures the effective reduction of any pathogens, we also can eliminate odors left behind after a flood. Our Odor Control Technician (OCT) understands where odors originate and removes these from their sources. The debris found inside a flooded house carries organic matter which produces foul smells. We remove the majority of the debris, but it only takes a small number of these compounds and microbes to foul up the air you and your family breathe.

Cleaning, sanitizing, and deodorizing your home helps tremendously in protecting your family's health, but we also must protect your structure. Flood damage poses the risk of water damage and microbial infestation. Both can create extensive damage to your home in the future. Drying out your property through the use of heaters, air movers, and dehumidification equipment can help prevent such problems.

Other ways that your home becomes dry enough for your family to return include our removing of water-logged sections of drywall and saturated carpet and padding. Heat-producing equipment dries your floor's underlay so we can have new padding and carpeting installed.

The interior of walls can also harbor mold spores, making it imperative that we dry these areas quickly and completely. Many changes happen in your house while we work, but we always repair these details. These include small openings needed in walls and ceilings to allow for directed air flows.

SERVPRO of South Colorado Springs wants your family to live in a home that provides the protection they deserve. We can solve the problematic situations that flood damage causes and make it “Like it never even happened.” Call us at (719) 574-2789 24/7 for our 24-hour services. We are always ready to not only take your call but to also respond to all your emergencies, even in the Security and Widefield areas.
