Flooding Damages in La Plata County Get Handled by SERVPRO

La Plata County Property Owners Rely on SERVPRO for Safe Cleanup and Restoration Services after Flooding

Extreme weather systems and disasters like wildfires make the La Plata County area vulnerable to flash flooding. Properties in the vicinity are at risk of significant damage and are in need of a reliable and quick response from highly-qualified restoration professionals. Our trained technicians and state of the art equipment give local homeowners the best possible chance at a successful recovery from flooding.

Overland flood damage can put properties in La Plata County at risk of severe loss; it is crucial that homeowners ready themselves. Although it is potentially possible to clear away the flood debris without assistance, a property holder is best positioned if a reputable restoration company is ready to help. We have thoroughly trained technicians available within a few hours notice with access to high-capacity equipment designed to remove quantities of water safely.

SERVPRO helps residents move water out of lower levels using submersible pumps and water extractors. With flood waters, the possibility of contamination is always present. The ground surrounding a flooded home can be full of hazardous substances, including dead insects and animals, yard and roadway chemicals, and sewage from overflowing sanitary systems. Human waste, full of pathogens, can be a challenge to the removal professionals.

We can contain the tainted water as we remove it, disposing of it according to local hazardous waste rules. The surfaces saturated with the dirty water must receive effective decontamination. EPA registered disinfectants treat the affected areas, and SERVPRO employees must be cautious as we move from suctioning away flood waters to drying out the spaces. Air movers can spread hazardous materials when sanitization protocols are not followed.

If the flooded space in your home also served you as storage or living area, we may recommend a pack out of personal items and furnishings. When SERVPRO production facility technicians have the chance to focus piece by piece on cleaning, disinfecting, and drying out away from the structural drying both types of property have a better shot at regaining function and appearance.

SERVPRO of Archuleta, La Plata, Montezuma & San Juan Counties is up to the task of assisting homeowners coping with severe flooding in the aftermath of one or more natural disaster. Contact our team at (970) 259-6184 day or night for assessment and development of a flood recovery plan.
