Some Damage Cannot Be Avoided After Water Removal in Colorado Springs
SERVPRO Can Help Restore Your Home and Belongings after Water Damage
Removing water from a Colorado Springs home immediately after a flood or similar disaster is vital to prevent as much damage as possible and push down costs of cleanup and repairs. However, avoiding damage entirely is often impossible under such circumstances. Materials can tear apart, expand to alarming proportions, become discolored, and experience a myriad of other complications even with an ideal initial response. Here are a few of the most common types of damage that can occur even if we do everything right.
Discoloration around the home can be common after water removal in Colorado Springs for different reasons. Floodwaters can pick up contaminants, dyes, and other materials that leave behind permanent marks on any surface they touch. Some materials react chemically with water, while others merely change their appearance slightly when exposed to substantial moisture levels. Furthermore, dyed materials can bleed their colors onto other surfaces, losing their coloration and harming other materials in the process. SERVPRO can eliminate these visual signs of damage with ease during the restoration process thanks to our access to a wide variety of paints, finishes, and materials used in local homes.
Damage to Belongings
Electronics, valuables, and other fragile objects can break quickly when exposed to water. Floodwaters can crash into and topple over many belongings, but some items can be hurt irreparably from as little as an elevated exposure to humidity. Our IICRC certified technicians carefully evaluate everything damaged in the disaster to determine whether or not each item can be salvaged.
Damage to Carpet and Fabrics
Many types of carpeting and fabrics deteriorate too rapidly when exposed to water to save. As with belongings, we carefully evaluate the extent of damage to carpets and upholstery to determine if individual parts can be restored and reused while only replacing select parts and areas of the material.
