Melting Snow Often Causes Flooding in Colorado Springs--Call SERVPRO for Cleanup and Restoration

Flooding in Colorado Springs Can Happen Any Time of the Year

Flood damage can happen in Colorado Springs at any time of year, but how homes encounter this damage and deal with its effects can vary dramatically as the climate changes. Winter issues such as freezing, melting, and snow accumulation can be safely ignored in the summer, while the devastating effects of high relative humidity may be less likely to manifest in the colder months of the year. No matter what season or weather conditions your home takes damage in, SERVPRO stands ready to respond.

Winter Disasters
Flood damage during the winter in Colorado Springs may be more common than you think. While snow and ice rarely accumulate high enough around a home to create flood-like situations on their own, sudden rises in temperature can create dangerous melting conditions in and around the community that sometimes translate to residential flooding. Furthermore, when the weather permits, rainstorms are not an unusual sight for local homeowners, creating a more direct threat from storms and precipitation. SERVPRO technicians are trained to keep the climate under control to prevent extra damage from happening as water repeatedly freezes and melts in the home. Then there is always the issue of ice damming which is another topic for another day.

Summertime Calamities
While the summer season may be clear of winter's vices, it usually brings its own set of unique problems and variables that we must control for in most flood damage restorations. Higher relative humidity forces us to monitor the RH relative humidity in entirely different ways and make use of extra dehumidifying technology. The warmer weather may also facilitate mold growth and other fungal problems in the home.
Spring and Fall Situations
With weather conditions that vary from year to year, the fall and spring seasons can be somewhat unpredictable in Colorado Springs. We take care to prepare for both warm-weather and cold-weather flood situations, sometimes in the same week. Our flexible approach and a full-featured array of damage mitigation tools allow us to adapt to changing weather conditions quickly and without incurring any additional damage to the home.

SERVPRO of Northern Colorado Springs / Tri-Lakes provides flood damage mitigation and restoration services to homeowners in need of any conditions or season. Call us at (719) 434-4626 to find out how we can help.
