Water Damage What To Expect
The Water Damage Restoration Process
Colorado is no stranger to water damage. Severe thunderstorms, wind, and hail storms are commonplace here and often result in costly water damage to homes and businesses. For example, 4 out of 8 of the most expensive hail storms in Colorado history have occurred in the past decade, with that May 2017 storm causing a staggering $2 billion in damages.
Severe weather events aren't the only culprit for water damage. Any water-based household appliance, toilet, washing machine, and dishwasher can spring a leak or rupture, causing massive amounts of water to flow out and damage floors, walls, personal belongings, and more. If the water damage isn't dealt with quickly and correctly, it can lead to even worse issues, such as mold and permanent structural damage.
When water damage does occur in your Colorado home, it's best to leave it to the experts. While you may be tempted to resolve the issue yourself, chances are you don't have the skills, knowledge, or expertise to do so, not to mention the proper tools for assessing and restoring extensive water damage.

Step 3 - Water Removal / Water Extraction
The water removal process begins almost immediately and removes most of the water. We use powerful pumps and vacuum units to quickly remove hundreds or thousands of gallons from your property, which helps prevent secondary water damage and mold growth.
Step 4 - Drying and Dehumidification
We use specialized equipment to remove the remaining water that is harder to access. Our Professionals will use room measurements, temperature, and relative humidity to determine the optimal number of air movers and dehumidifiers needed to dry your home or business.
Step 5 - Cleaning and Sanitizing
We clean all of the restorable items and structures damaged by the water. We are adept at cleaning contents using several techniques. Our professionals are trained to provide sanitizing treatments, remove odors, and deodorize your property.
Step 6 - Restoration
Restoration is restoring your home or business to its pre-water damage condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and installing new carpet, or significant repairs, such as reconstructing various areas or rooms in a home or business.
