The Water Damage Restoration Process
Colorado is no stranger to water damage. Severe thunderstorms, wind, and hail storms are commonplace here, and often result in costly water damage to homes and businesses. 4 out of 8 of the most expensive hail storms in Colorado history have occurred in the past decade, with that May 2017 storm causing a staggering $2 billion in damages.
Severe weather events aren't the only culprit for water damage. Any household water-based appliance, toilets, washing machines as well as dishwashers, can spring a leak or rupture, causing massive amounts of water to flow out and damage floors, walls, personal belongings and more. If the water damage isn't dealt with quickly and properly, it can lead to even worse issues down the road such as mold and permanent structural damage.
When water damage does occur in your Colorado home, it's best to leave it to the experts. While you may be tempted to resolve the issue yourself, chances are that you don't have the skills, knowledge or expertise to do so, not to mention the proper tools for assessing and restoring extensive water damage.

We clean all of the restorable items and structures damaged by the water. We are adept at cleaning contents using a number of techniques. Our professionals are trained to provide sanitizing treatments and to remove odors and deodorize your property.
Step 6 - Restoration
Restoration is the process of restoring your home or business to its pre-water damage condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and installing new carpet, or may entail major repairs, such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
