When You Have Frozen Pipes in Aurora CO

equipment for frozen pipe damage cleanup in kitchen

Water can be a severely destructive force. It attacks everything in its path – from wood floors, walls, carpeting, tiles, drywall and furniture. As our temperatures freeze this week, it’s not unusual for pipes to burst. Frozen pipes that burst from the arctic temperatures can destroy areas of a house or business quickly. When that happens, here are the things to discuss with a water remediation specialist.

  1. Response time. You need to call a water restoration expert immediately. How fast can they service your home or business? The sooner water damage repair can start, the better and more timely the results.
  2. Professionally trained. While you want a quick response, you also need certified property restoration experts that can assess the damage and design a plan of action specific to your home or office.
  3. Top Level Equipment. The equipment used to dry out your property is important. Like everything else, the latest equipment performs the task more efficiently and with better results. The restoration company you use should be able to reverse the effects of water damage in a timely manner and leave your property totally dry.
  4. Sanitize and Dehumidify. Almost immediately, mold begins to form in areas that are wet. Mold can cause an unsafe environment. Make sure the company you call can diagnose mold issues, begin the clean-up process and follow through with a sanitization and dehumidifying process.
  5. Content Removal. In some case, contents must be removed before the remediation process can begin. Can the restoration company you call take care of removing contents?
  6. Repair Damage. It’s important to dry out the area quickly, but what happens to the floors, drywall or other areas that are damaged. The restoration company you call should be able to repair the damages to pre-damaged condition.
