When it comes to property damage in residential and commercial buildings, water is the most common cause. There are many ways that water damage can occur including from weather conditions like floods and rain and from problems inside the building like leaks, sewage backups, and burst pipes. Once excess water or flooding gets into a property, it can cause serious damage by getting absorbed in porous building materials and furnishings and spreading further throughout the property. Affected materials will become weakened and corroded, leading to structural damage, and these materials are at a high risk for mold growth.
It is important to act fast in response to water damage to prevent serious structural damage and mold. At ServiceMaster Fire and Water Restoration, we provide water damage restoration services to help homes and businesses affected by excess water and flooding in Denver, CO. Our highly trained technicians will arrive quickly to stop the spread of the water and evaluate the extent of the damage to form a water mitigation plan. We use advanced equipment and drying techniques to provide complete water damage restoration in commercial and residential settings.
Damage Caused by Water and Flooding
Any amount of water damage in your home requires urgent attention because it will keep spreading until it is removed. Water can spread so easily because materials used for flooring, walls, and ceilings are porous and will absorb the water. These materials will also become more prone to warping, buckling, and corrosion as they absorb more water which can threaten the structural integrity of the home or building.
Mold growth is another issue caused by water damage as mold can appear in affected areas in as little as 24 hours. The addition of mold will not only add to the damage, but also introduce health risks from mold exposure.

Finding standing flood water in your home is frustrating and you may not know what to do to begin the cleanup. Indoor flooding can occur due to natural flooding as well as problems such as overflows and burst pipes that can also lead to standing water. It is important to react to indoor flooding right away because that amount of water can quickly cause serious structural damage and create the conditions for mold growth. Our technicians at ServiceMaster Fire and Water Restoration can clean up flood water using our advanced water extraction equipment. Once the flood water is removed, we will then dry the affected areas and materials and provide restoration and cleaning.
It is possible for sewage to back up in your home or building if the sewer line backs up or if there is an overflow of the septic tank. You may also be dealing with sewage on your property if flood water from outside that has been mixed with sewage enters. Sewage water is very dangerous because of the waste materials and toxins it contains, making it very important to avoid any contact with the contaminated water. Our technicians can safely extract sewage water and ensure that the affected areas and materials are cleaned and disinfected. The area will be safe again for use once the damaged areas have been cleaned and sanitized using advanced cleaning products and equipment.
