When Your Floors Are Damaged By A Flood In Colorado Springs, You Need The Experts At SERVPRO To Help!

When strong storms are moving through, flood damage in your Colorado Springs home can happen.

Helping Homeowners With Flooring After Flood Damage Strikes Their Colorado Springs Home

The flooring inside your Colorado Springs home receives the most wear and tear during any given day. Walking on it, constant vacuuming, pets, children, and even the dust in the air all impact your flooring. Water from outside that floods into your home can significantly add to the damage your flooring sustains. The damage can become so great that it ruins your floors.

When strong storms are moving through, flood damage in your Colorado Springs home can happen. The technicians at SERVPRO are always ready, day and night, to help mitigate the damage and help homeowners save their belongings and the interiors of their homes. Flooding can significantly affect your family negatively, but the restoration of the home can lessen the impact experienced. Our crew always work as quickly as possible to make things “Like it never even happened.”

To start mitigation of flood damage, we need to extract the water. Afterward, we can begin cleaning and drying everything. Making notes of damages that require replacement items find a place on inventory sheets so you can more easily discuss these issues with your insurance agency.

Flooring often sustains extensive damage during a flood. Many times, this damage is so destructive that the floor falls apart in pieces as we extract the water. This is especially true of wooden tiles and pressed wood components.

Carpeting almost never survives a flood because of its extra porous nature. We remove it in sections to make it easier to bag up and dispose of properly. We repeat the process with the pad, where possible, but many times this part can more easily come up with the use of scrapers.

Hardwood floors, however, survive flooding disasters much more easily if care is taken to treat them correctly. These require specialized drying methods to minimize any cupping or crowning. Once dry, we check again, as these changes can cause tripping hazards. Any slight deviations can often disappear with some slight sanding, saving your floor. Our methods dry the wooden boards from top to bottom, making sure that drying takes place in an even manner.
