Flood Damage Amidst the Beauty of Grand Junction
SERVPRO Technicians Use Pumps and Extractors to Dry Your Property After Flooding
On Colorado’s Western Slope, Grand Junction is at the epicenter of Colorado's wine region. Although the area is generally arid, sudden storms can send torrents of water pouring down the mountains and into the city. The Colorado River swells as it transects the metropolitan area, and residents risk flood damage to their property. Our technicians are ready to assist, trained and armed with the latest equipment.
When weather systems overload the ground surrounding your home with water, the resulting flood damage in Grand Junction requires professional attention. Anywhere from several inches of moisture to a foot or more of water can build inside the foundation of your home, exposing the very base of your abode to the risk of severe deterioration and the contents of your home to potential ruin. No matter how valiantly homeowner might try to manage the excess of water without help, the circumstances require commercial grade pumps and high-efficiency water extractors.
SERVPRO has submersible pumps and wanded water extractors stocked on each of our service vehicles. When we arrive at your flooded premises, the crew chief assesses the extent of the water crisis and gets the crew working straight away. If the weather has interrupted electrical service, our technicians need not delay as our equipment is truck mounted and powered.
Pumps take on the job, and then the extractors are used to access any water trapped in cavities and recesses in the lower levels of your home. SERVPRO technicians are expert at measuring moisture in structural components with precision instruments and scanning for caches of water with infrared technology. The baseline measurements provide the data needed to determine drying goals.
If you use the flooded space as a storage area, SERVPRO often suggests a pack out of the boxes, containers, and loose items. This allows us to evaluate the possession for damage and to plan and implement restoration strategies. We can move the articles to a dry and secure area in your home or an outbuilding if available. When there is no room for a pack out on your property, our production facility and warehouse serves the same purpose.
The pack out also gives SERVPRO technicians room to best position air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to dry out the structure of your lower levels. We treat the affected areas with EPA registered disinfectants to sanitize and inhibit the growth of mold or other microorganisms.
