Flood Damage Technicians In Glenwood Springs Describe Problems Associated With Snow Melting

5/30/2019 (Permalink)

Storm Damage Flood Damage Technicians In Glenwood Springs Describe Problems Associated With Snow Melting Remember winter weather can be beautiful, but can be very damaging, call SERVPRO for your winter weather issues.

Many locations deal with winter water damage.

This year the Glenwood Springs area along with most of the state of Colorado received more snowfall than the last few years. Excessive snow during the winter season led to an increase in flood damage cases during the cold months, and the problems can continue into the late spring and early summer seasons. According to the experts, this year, the snowpack amounts in the high mountains are nearly double what they were last year. Many places in Colorado's high country are noticing that the amount of snow is also higher than the yearly average. All of this means that when the weather starts to warm up and the snow starts to melt that an increased amount of cases of flood damage could be likely for the next month or two.

For example, when the snow melts from the high mountains in Garfield County, water starts to pour downhill. The increased amount of water running in the rivers and streams can cause flood damage in Glenwood Springs. If the water levels rise high enough, the rivers and streams can overflow which can cause water to pour downhill taking routes it normally would not take. This liquid H2O can flow down the mountains above your house and head in your direction. If this happens, there is a chance that water will get into the interior of your home.

Once moisture finds a way indoors, several problems can occur. Any time items inside your house get wet it is wise to call in a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO. Our water damage restoration technicians or WRTs know that prompt action is necessary to reduce the issues overall. If organic substances stay wet inside your home, mold growth can occur.

Our WRTs at SERVPRO know techniques and have equipment that can help dry out your home before fungi can develop. We start the restoration process by extracting water while it is still in liquid form. Then, we implement applied structural drying or ASD.

If you ever suffer problems associated with snow melting, call SERVPRO of Garfield & Pitkin Counties 24 hours a day and seven days a week.

We Have Specialized Techniques To Get Rid Of Fire Damage In Glenwood Springs

Fire Damage We Have Specialized Techniques To Get Rid Of Fire Damage In Glenwood Springs Fires that start in the kitchen can leave horrible odors. Our team is experience and has the right equipment to fully restore your home.

Small Fire Damage, Big Odor Problem in Glenwood Springs

According to the U.S. Fire Administration, 50.3% of fires in residential buildings were caused by cooking. This type of fire damage is often referred to in our industry as a protein fire because it comes from burning food which can leave pungent, hard-to-remove odors in the home.

Mitigating both foul odors and fire damage in Glenwood Springs homes requires the application of several specialized techniques. While protein fires often leave little in the way of residues, the smell is usually stronger than other types of fire odor. Additionally, due to the high heat, the scent tends to permeate furnishings and porous items easily and remains until neutralized.

After accessing the area affected by the protein fire, SERVPRO technicians determine if containment is necessary and ascertain the area is dry. If needed, technicians perform water extraction, and air movers are deployed to thoroughly dry without spreading odor-causing particles to other areas of the home.

Technicians work on cleaning residue from affected surfaces using professional-strength cleaning solutions and wet and dry sponges as necessary on surfaces and affected objects to remove any remaining residual smoke and soot residues and eliminate some of the odor caused by the fire damage.

The Odor Control Technician (OCT) has numerous resources to use for effective odor removal after a protein fire. Due to the nature of fire odors, the removal of the pungent scents can be a multi-layered process. Air scrubbers fitted with activated charcoal filters pull odor-causing motes from the air that cannot be seen with the naked human eye. The air ducts are cleaned, and the HVAC filter changed to eliminate any odors that traveled from the original fire damaged area. Another effective method of odor neutralization is the application of thermal fogging. Our OCT uses a handheld machine to deliver a heated fog of odor-neutralizing solvent. The fog works in the same manner as smoke to penetrate and overtake odors deeply embedded in porous objects removing all traces of the protein fire.

Fire odors can linger until all traces of the fire damage is removed from the home. SERVPRO of Garfield & Pitkin Counties has technicians available to assist you 24/7 to get rid of all traces of the fire at your home. Call (970) 618-1516 today to get started.
