Storm Damage cleanup in New Castle, Colorado

6/2/2022 (Permalink)

"When a storm wreaks havoc on your building in Garfield and Pitkin Counties, CO, you need the expertise of flood damage specialists to restore your building to its original state. They have to tear out old material and rebuild after the facility is clean. You can expect the cleanup crew to work through four basic steps after arrival.

Water Extraction

The first thing that has to happen to stop further water damage is extraction. Floods usually leave a significant amount of standing water. Technicians use industrial pumps to remove water and special machinery to siphon off as much of the excess left behind as possible. 

Material Removal

Flood water typically leaves the destruction of structural materials in its wake. The crew must tear out waterlogged drywall and any damp insulation they find. Ceiling tiles or flooring may have to be taken out as well. Anything that is no longer structurally sound has to go.

Area Drying

The parts of the structure that are salvageable must be dried thoroughly. If too much moisture is left in your building, your water damage problem can get worse. However, drying out the area prevents future problems from happening.

Building Restoration

The last thing technicians do before the job is finished is restore your building to its former functionality. Walls have to be rebuilt, and missing ceiling tiles must be replaced. The storm restoration crew will likely match the new materials with the remaining materials so that no one can tell where the former begins and the latter ends. Once the structure is rebuilt, and everything looks like it's supposed to look, the building is ready for use again.

Talk through the extraction, tear out, drying, and restoration process with your lead technician before the work begins."
