As one of the largest suburbs in the Denver Metro area, Lakewood supports a thriving commercial district and well-populated residential communities.

Denver-based ServiceMaster DSI is proud to serve Lakewood, CO with professional disaster restoration and cleaning services.
Because Lakewood sits in the watershed of South Platte River, several tributaries from the major river split east through the city. These include Sanderson, Lakewood, and Weir Gulches, Bear Creek, and the smaller tributaries from these. The city boundaries of Lakewood also contain many reservoirs, small lakes, creeks, and other bodies of water, adding up to 2.7% water, which is a much higher city percentage than nearby Denver.
While the prevalence of water in Lakewood—along with its proximity to the Rockies and mountain forests—offers up beautiful recreational trails, parks, and small-boating opportunities, there are some downsides to Lakewood’s water and location.
During the spring, summer, and fall, changing weather patterns moving from the west coast across the Rockies often lead to rain. When heavy rains flow down the mountains or drop over the city directly, natural flooding can become a hazard for business and homeowners alike.
For instance, the devastating floods of 2013 across several counties in the Metro Denver area left Bear Creek risen up to 9 ft., forcing Evergreen into a Level 1 evacuation, and major roadways across the county closed, including Highway 72. Heavy floods like these often cause serious water damage, but even small building floods caused by a few inches of water around a foundation can lead to detrimental water damage.
