Water Damage Scenarios in Colorado Springs
There are few cities and towns that can compare to Colorado Springs. It is a perfect location to see and do everything that our state has to offer when it comes to outdoor activities. Occasionally though, a great day climbing or skiing is marred by coming home to find a broken pipe or a failing appliance, such as a water heater has left water across the floor in multiple rooms and, sometimes, the entire home.
Eliminating water damage from Colorado Springs homes and restoring them needs to be quickly accomplished. Fortunately, SERVPRO response teams do both very well. Each team arrives on-site with a full equipment set that includes commercial-grade pumps for draining standing water from the home and smaller devices for removing water trapped in carpets and between or underneath floorboards.
This eliminates the major threat to the home, but there is still the issue of drawing out the moisture left behind. Even a small amount can rot carpets, warp floorboards and tile, and compromise building materials like wood paneling, floor trim, and drywall. Specialists reduce and eliminate the damage here with a combination of air movers, dehumidifiers, and fans to draw our water and lower the interior humidity.
SERVPRO teams use the air movers to carefully push out moisture. They direct the airflow, speed, and temperature depending on the type of affected material. For example, carpets can handle higher airflow speed, but specialists carefully control the temperature to help avoid separating the carpet layers, also known as delamination.
Once moisture is released into the air, the dehumidifiers capture it for disposal. Each device can capture up to 20 gallons of water over 24 hours. When the air is very heavy with moisture, specialists use fans to increase air circulation and direct the heavy air out the nearest door, window, or other exits. Increased circulation also helps dehumidifiers work more efficiently.
Our goal at SERVPRO of Northern Colorado Springs / Tri-Lakes is to remove water and eliminate the damage it can leave behind in local homes and surrounding communities like Gleneagle, Monument, and Palmer Lake.
