Commercial Water Cleanup Often Requires the Professional Assistance of a Service with the Right Training, Experience, and Specialized Equipment to Effectively Handle the Job in Colorado Springs

This spring, a local Colorado Springs big-box retail store suffered the effects of a major roof leak.  Already weak from age and poor maintenance, several areas of the store’s roof started leaking as a result of snowmelt and seasonal rains. Large pools of standing water, coming from multiple holes in the damaged ceiling, hindered the business’ operations and closed it to customers. The store’s massive stockroom, suffering the effects of a partial roof collapse, was in even worse condition. Its recessed floor was under several inches of snowmelt and rainwater. After the business owners overcame the initial shock of the loss, they contacted a local water cleanup service for help.
