Water Extraction and Structural Drying

To remove all water and moisture from your flooded basement, we use speciality removal equipment and industrial-strength drying fans. Depending on the severity of your water damage, the water extraction process usually takes a few hours.

However, we also want to make sure all moisture is removed from your floor, framing, and walls to prevent mold growth. The drying process can be from 2-20 days, but it is an essential step to reduce damage and health risks down the line.

Broken Water Heater Flooding

Water heaters are often referred to as ticking time-bombs due to their explosive ability. However, many business and homeowners experience water damage from burst pipes and valve leaks instead of actual explosions. Whether caused by sediment build-up or a blocked valve, water heater flooding can be destructive to your home.

If your water heater is on an upper floor and a leak occurs, water can flood down through your ceiling—causing a dangerous collapse. For basement water heaters, a leak or burst valve will likely flood the room in a matter of minutes.

Whatever the cause or area affected, we react swiftly to water heater flooding to minimize your risk of explosion and damage. As we work to extract water, we can call upon our network of professionals in Fort Collins to repair or replace your water heater.

Busted Pipes

Pipe bursts in basements are a common cause of water damage, especially during the winter months. While busted pipes are easier to notice, small pipe leaks can cause extensive damage over days and weeks before being noticed. If you see a water spot or part of your ceiling collapses, call our Fort Collins team for a free assessment. Not only will we stop the leak and help repair the damage, we’ll check for mold and make sure all moisture is removed.

Sewer Backup

No home or property owners enjoys dealing with water damage from a sewer backup. Since this water can be contaminated, it’s even more difficult to cleanup than white or gray water. Our team has years of experience with large-scale sewer backups, and we work rapidly to remove all water and disinfect affected areas. Sewer backup flooding usually requires more extensive repairs because of the water classification, and we can assist you in coordinating painters, drywallers, flooring experts, and more to restore your home.
