Flooded basement

Colorado is basically underwater from Fort Collins to Boulder to Parker and homes are being tested as to just how waterproof they are. If you find your basement is flooding here are some steps to get you started on the path to a dry home again.

Call a restoration company that specializes in water removal and clean up. They will help you get your home dry again.

With the water cleaned up you can better navigate the source of the leak and determine whether water is coming from your window, walls or floor. Try to keep the water contained and the area dry so mold does not become an issue.

Call in an expert as soon as possible. Mold, sitting water and water leakage can very quickly have an adverse effect on your house and family's health if you're able to stay in the house.

Most importantly, be safe out there in this dangerous weather and flooding.
