Why SERVPRO's Experience is Invaluable after Flood Damage Affects Your Colorado Springs Home

When a flooding incident affects your home in Colorado Springs, you have a lot to worry about including how to clean up, rebuild areas torn down for restoration and sanitize the property to remove contaminants and microbial agents. Calling a professional restorer such as SERVPRO can alleviate all your worries because the experience we have dealing with such incidents helps in many ways.

Preparedness to Deal with Any Loss
Incidents of flood damage in Colorado Springs ruin properties in different ways. Even similar properties affected by the same flooding incident can have different outcomes in terms of the damages. Issues like compromised structural integrity, electrical hazards, and contamination issues such as sewage backup are likely. Our SERVPRO technicians undertake comprehensive training on how to address any outcome of flooding. We also handle several incidents in our line of work, so we have practical skills.

Choosing the Right Tools
Just like the problems, the tools that can be used to solve them are equally many. Although having a variety is good, it can present problems when choosing what to use. In a loss environment like the aftermath of a flood, time is a luxury, so there is no opportunity to try different types of equipment. Our SERVPRO technicians use restoration equipment regularly, so we know which ones suit particular tasks. For example, we can tell when 2500psi cleaning force of a power washer is necessary, and when 50psi of an electric sprayer can suffice.

Handling Logistics
Dealing with flooding incidents requires a coordinated effort. Some issues that can cause delays if not well handled include cluttered contents in affected areas and placing all restoration equipment at the worksite immediately. Through experience, our SERVPRO technicians have gained skills on how best to handle such issues. For example, we move contents to unaffected areas within the house or move them out to external storage. We also bring simple tools such as hand trucks, which ease movement of heavy items.  The pieces of equipment we use for restoration remain in our trucks on site, but we only place what is necessary at the job site to avoid clutter.

With guidance from an experienced hand, dealing with flooding is easier. Call SERVPRO of Northern Colorado Springs / Tri-Lakes at (719) 434-4626. We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster.
