Water Damage Restoration Denver Style
When it comes to water damage restoration Denver confronts a daunting brew of menacing potential catastrophes this spring and summer.
From spring mountain thaw runoff to heavy spring storm systems washing over the Front Range in relentless waves to the honesttoGod monsoon that settles on the otherwise alpine desert region: It gets wet. So the Front range gets ready.
The ECO Clean experts have put together a quick handful of useful tips to help prevent water damage caused by wet Front Range conditions this spring and summer.
Make Sure Your Property Handles and Moves Water From Any Source
Think of your home or commercial property as a fortress that water w ill a ssault. The water can get into spaces where it doesn’t belong in a number of ways. Inspect your property’s water sealing and handling materials and structures to ensure they do their jobs of denying water entry and moving it away from vulnerable parts of your property safety and effectively.
Start at the top of your home or business, working down and identifying areas where water can enter or create water damage restoration challenges. Here are some areas to keep in mind:
- Roof caps, vents, chimneys and flashing
- Conduit and plumbing entry points into the building
- Windows and doors
- Gutters and downspouts
- French drains and drainage ditches
- Don’t forget basement sump pumps!
Don’t Overlook Safety
Front Range weather can dash aside our best preparations and impose its destructive will with disastrous results. If all your preparations fail, and you find yourself with a big water damage restoration project on your hands, you may want to literally jump in and start cleaning up the water right away. But pause, first. Consider potential risks that could lurk in water and water damaged structures, including:
- Risk of electrical shock
- Chemical and biological contaminants (animal waste, mold spores, other bacteria)
- Compromised structural integrity due to loosening fasteners and softening building materials
- Possible jagged, sharp debris beneath standing water
- Possible trapped animals and insects, such as snakes, rodents and venomous spiders brought in by floodwaters.
Consider all standing floodwater contaminated and use protective outerwear, gloves and protective masks available at hardware stores if you will be working in floodwater. Ensure that electrical circuits and gas service is disconnected from flooded structures and ventilate them before entering to begin water damage restoration. Proceed with deliberate caution and keep asking yourself, “What’s the worst thing that could happen right now.” Make sure you have a strategy to deal with the answers to that question.
