Remediating Flood Damage To Colorado Springs Homes
Storms can strike Colorado Springs very quickly. Each one often drops inches of rain, ice, and snow at this time of year. The results can be slick roads and soggy ground for a few days or a flood that covers every room in the house or leave a basement looking more like a wading pool.
To remediate flood damage to Colorado Springs homes, SERVPRO knows that time is of the essence. We keep a response team on-call, 24/7 to meet each emergency. With flooding from an outside source, our immediate tasks are to treat the threat of contamination, remove standing water, examine property for restoration, restore what we can, and dispose of what we cannot repair.
Since the flood water is from an outside source, it contains soil and other contaminants from every surface the water flowed over before it enters the home. Our technicians apply an anti-fungal spray to the surface of the water and any property that might have been underwater for any amount of time.
Next, SERVPRO restoration specialists use commercial grade pumps to remove the majority of any standing water. These machines work quickly and can draw down water very close to the surface of floors and carpets. To finish off removing the water, specialists use extractors designed to lift water out from between floorboards. To prevent damage from the contaminants, they use an anti-bacterial cleaning agent to finish the task.
When it comes to carpets, our specialists cannot guarantee that any cleaning agent or shampoo restores a carpet to a clean, safe condition. They use an extractor draw out water from the carpets and carpet pads and then dispose of them.
As team members remove the carpets, others remove property out of the flooded area to examine for restoration or disposal. Each item not repairable, they place on a pallet to drain and dry in an unaffected part of the home, a tent, or another storage site. To speed up the process, they set up fans to increase air circulation and, if needed, use space heaters as well.
Our goal at SERVPRO of South Colorado Springs is to restore each residence as quickly as possible to its original condition and return it to the homeowner. If you need our assistance, call us at (719) 574-2789 today. We are here for you.
