Water Damage Restoration in Colorado Springs
There are many ways water and flood damage can occur. Burst pipes, storm damage, water damage resulting from fighting a home fire, and sump pump failures are just a few examples of things that can go wrong. Water can cause immediate damage at times and increasing damage the longer it takes to remediate. The sooner water damage is identified and mitigated, the better your chances are salvaging your items and limiting your out-of-pocket costs associated with water damage restoration.

Helpful Tips for Homeowners for Water Mitigation
Taking immediate steps to mitigate can minimize the chances of mold, mildew, irretrievable loss of items, structural damage, and weakened trim, drywall, and floorboards. If you have water damage, are waiting for service to come, and need to take immediate action as you wait, here are some steps you can take.
Things You Can Do Yourself
- Retrieve loose items from floor and wet areas and store in a dry place.
- Collect photographs, art, and other items that are sensitive to moisture and protect them in a safe, dry place.
- Remove any excess water you can with mops, wet-vacs, or towels.
- Gather wet accessories made of fabric, such as pillows, cushions, stuffed toys, and clothing, and set aside.
- If you have a dehumidifier, place it in the area and let it run until help comes.
- Use wood blocks or even aluminum foil to separate furniture and table legs from standing water on the floor.
- Crank up the air conditioner in the summer to help speed up the drying process.
- Move area rugs to another location.
Things You Shouldn’t Do
- Leave paper items exposed to water or even moist air, especially in a basement area.
- Use a regular vacuum cleaner in an attempt to remove excess water.
- Use electrical appliances and outlets where standing water occurs and the extent of the water damage is unknown.
- Leave loose, wet items lying around.
Once Steamatic arrives, we will begin more extensive remediation. We will perform an immediate initial assessment of the damage and utilize our professional, commercial-grade equipment to begin the water removal and drying process. We will provide an onsite assessment and communicate the extent of damage and what option you have for remediation. We will also provide an advanced emergency cost of treatment, or use a preliminary cost treatment until a more definitive estimate can be developed.
