Water Main Breaks That Flood Colorado Springs Homes

Harsh winters are nothing new to the Colorado Springs area residents, though many can still find themselves on the unfortunate end of a cold snap that can damage plumbing or other elements like it. Even with the water main through your street getting buried beneath the understood frost line, shifting in the ground can still move the main too much and allow it to crack or split. While there is little that a homeowner can do in these situations to help, the thousands of gallons of lost water now on the surface pose a threat to nearby properties.

While these scenarios do not come with the same ramifications and obstacles as black water flood damage for your Colorado Springs home, there are still many ways that this high volume of water can significantly damage to your property. If you have a lower-lying residence in the immediate area, you can be contending with a steady flow of powerful water until utility and municipal employees arrive to shut off this portion of the line with isolation valves.

As you might expect, the best defense is a good offense for combatting these effects of continual flooding. Our SERVPRO team arrives with a powerful truck-mounted pump capable of removing excess water at a rate of 300 psi. While this often does not rival the ferocity of an exposed water line, it can help to keep the situation from spreading flood damage farther throughout the house.

With clean water scenarios like this, the objective for our SERVPRO professionals is to protect what structural elements and construction materials we can. We have advanced drying solutions, and when employed quickly, many of these approaches can preserve original materials which can save you time and money on the restoration work your property requires.

While you cannot predict the compromise of a water main outside of your home, you can trust in the right professionals to help you overcome the effects inside. Give our SERVPRO of Northern Colorado Springs / Tri-Lakes team a call anytime disaster strikes at (719) 434-4626.
