Torrential Storms that cause Flooding Leave Colorado Springs Homes in Need of Flood Removal and Debris Cleanup

The weather can play tricks on us in Colorado Springs. Thunderstorms bringing large amounts of rain to our city can overflow creeks and cause underpasses to fill with water. The same can happen in residential areas and leave homes full of murky water. Along with the water, debris also flows inside, creating a dangerous mess full of risks to the house's residents.

Houses and businesses overtaken by such devastating storms in Colorado Springs need fast flood removal and extraction services. SERVPRO professionals take the time to discuss with you how we remove the water, and what comes next. 

We use submersible pumps attached to our pump truck to steadily extract the water from your home's interior. We recommend not entering your house while it remains flooded because of the high probability of sharp debris, pathogens, and electrical hazards. When we enter, we wear personal protective equipment (PPE), including waders, high boots, full body suits, heavy gloves, and respiratory masks. 

Removing the water leaves us with silt, and buckets-full of it, as well. We use shovels to clear your floors of this sediment, filling bucket after bucket. Other members of our crew pull out larger pieces of debris, either from your home or from outside. Floodwaters indiscriminately push everything with it, and many pieces of garbage and other waste can end up inside.

Our building crew helps with many aspects of helping our customers recover after flood damage. This includes restoring salvageable furniture. While pieces with particle board either require us to dispose of them or extensive repair work, many pieces can survive a flood if we wipe them down and remove any condensation. We almost always recommend replacing some pieces, like mattresses, to keep your family from experiencing unwanted health effects.

Drying things out in your home after we remove contaminated carpets, drywall, and other components happens fairly swiftly because of the reduced moisture in the home. These porous materials can retain large amounts of water. When we remove them, we do so in small amounts at a time because the water makes these materials much heavier than before the flood.

The associated problems caused by flooding in your home do not go unnoticed by our professionals. We can help your family recover in many ways, including giving you information about resources in our local communities.

Residents living in Monument and near Palmer Lake trust SERVPRO of Northern Colorado Springs / Tri-Lakes to handle the devastation caused by damaging weather like flooding and storms. Our emergency number, (719) 434-4626, is always available, day or night, where someone can take your call and get things started in a positive direction for you and your family.
