Winter is anything but predictable in Aurora, CO. While residents are used to the changeable weather, the effects of a stronger winter storm than initially expected can be damaging to your home. Storm damage and the resulting water damage can be an unexpected event, but luckily, ServiceMaster DSI has been helping Aurora, CO, residents with water damage restoration services with the expertise and power of the ServiceMaster name behind us.
No matter the cause of your water damage, ServiceMaster DSI can help.
Burst pipes: It’s often not the storm that’s the biggest concern, but rather the days of bitterly cold weather than surround it. Pipes in un-insulated areas or walls near the exterior of the home are the most at risk for bursting during sustained cold snaps. To help reduce the chance of burst pipes in these areas of the home, leave a small trickle of water running from the faucet.
Collapsed roofs: If your roof is older and hasn’t been checked for signs of damage and we have a significant snowfall, your home may be at risk. This often happens after bursts of wet and heavy snow over a short duration. The damage of a collapsed roof will require both water damage restoration and reconstruction services. ServiceMaster can handle these needs and is ready to respond quickly.
Quick melts: As we have mentioned, seasons can be fickle in Colorado. When the temperatures start bouncing up and down and it’s been a year of high precipitation, the run off can be a problem. With frozen ground and higher temperatures, that water needs somewhere to go. If you have a compromised grading or low lying areas around your basement, the water will do its best to work its way towards your foundation.
Cleaning up a flooded basement is a huge undertaking, and one you do not want to take on yourself.
