How Moisture Affects Hard Flooring In Your Colorado Springs Home 

It isn’t hard to understand how important it is to get water out of your Colorado Springs home as fast as possible after a flood. However, if you call for help and waters have a chance to recede, you need access to a company that can find our where the water went and understands how to get it out.  

Having access to a qualified restoration company in Colorado Springs to handle water removal in your home can give you a better chance of recovering. We have all of the latest detection, removal, drying, and dehumidification equipment, along with certified technicians who have years of experience performing the services you need. 

SERVPRO technicians can help you determine which way to go, reduce the losses you experience, and make a rather significant difference in the quality of your home after a flood occurs. We understand how water can make painted concrete flake or blister, releasing lead-based paint particles, a hazardous waste. 

Since concrete floors are porous, water can wick-up, leaving chalk-like calcium deposits on the surface. Our removal, restoration, and remediation technicians have the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), which allows us to take specific actions to remove these deposits. However, if a continuous leak exists, the deposits may return. 

With our infrared moisture detectors, we can locate the source of the problem, eliminating issues for good. Dirt or surface films on concrete often support microbial growth. SERVPRO uses HEPA vacuums along with EPA-registered disinfectants to clean the area and regain control over existing microbes. 

Water damage affects resilient tiles such as asphalt differently while it maintains a good bond with concrete after water damage occurs; white or gray areas can occur. The whitening happens due to the separation of the sealer wax or finishes used on the floor itself. However, these areas respond well to cleaning methods used by SERVPRO cleaning technicians. 

Vinyl tile is not as durable, often coming loose after mass flooding. Water movement that makes its way through your concrete forces vinyl tiles to separate. These tiles can cost more to clean than to replace than other tile options, making replacement the better option. Ceramic tile is an entirely different animal.
