Water Removal and Disinfecting Are Two Key Components to Restoration After Flooding

Consistent, heavy, and prolonged rainfall, together with overflowing rivers and other channels, are one of the main reasons for flooding in the Crested Butte area. As rainwater fills the river streams, the water speeds out on the floodplain or the land adjacent to the river, causing flooding. After heavy rainfall, massive flooding is also affected by particular factors like shallow and steep river channels, concrete drainage basins and lack of vegetation.
When the floodwaters reach your home in Crested Butte, you should act fast to get your home restored, or you could sustain further flood damage. Hopefully, you prepared your structure to help prevent water intrusion. As soon as it is safe, you need to call in our professional staff at SERVPRO for help. We are an experienced flood damage remediation company, and we know just how to restore your house as quickly as possible so you can get your home back.
We do a thorough inspection when we arrive at your home, even as we begin water extraction. During this step, we remove as much water as possible with industrial grade equipment such as truck-mounted pumps. We do this as swiftly as possible to minimize additional damage to your property.
After the visible water is removed, SERVPRO staff remove any parts of the building materials which need replacing. Elements that frequently need this partial demolition include drywall, carpeting, and insulation. If they are ruined, getting them out fast allows your home to dry more thoroughly, faster. With air-movers and dehumidifiers, we proceed with the drying process. Moisture meters and infrared cameras are also used to determine if there is any hidden water inside flooring or walls cavities.  
When everything is dry again, which may take several days up to weeks, we clean and disinfect all the affected areas to prevent mold growth. Renovation and remodeling is the last step to restoring your home back to the way it was. We work alongside professional contractors to get this part of the job done when major reconstruction is needed.
SERVPRO of Montrose/Telluride understands the need for you to have your home in Paonia, Ouray, or Cedaredge fully restore back to its preloss condition. We work hard to achieve this when you give us a call at (970) 240-6970 after flood damage.
