You and your loved ones are driving home from the airport after a week-long vacation where many memories have been made. You are feeling content and ready to get back to real life, but tired after spending a day in various airports. Your own bed and familiar surroundings will be a comfort after a long day. These images of comfort vanish as you walk into your home, luggage in hand, to discover your recent vacation has just turned into a nightmare…a pipe has burst while you have been gone, your basement has several feet of standing water which has led to extreme damage to your furniture, your personal possessions, your carpet, and even the structural integrity of your home. Welcome home!
All Dry Water Damage Experts has seen this scenario play out too many times with our customers. It is bad enough when burst pipes or the recent downpours leave several feet of water in your home when you are at work or school for the day. But when these conditions are discovered after the house has been left unoccupied for multiple days or weeks, the severity of the damage is multiplied. The amount of time it takes before water damage is mitigated is the most critical factor in the severity of damage, as well as how much it will cost to remediate and restore your home.
We associate springtime as the season with frequent and heavy rain and summer with hot, sunny days and cloudless blue skies. The examination of weather trends in the Denver/Front Range area, however, demonstrates that it is becoming more common for us to experience a secondary “spring-like” wet season that begins as early as mid –summer and can last until late summer, or even the beginning of autumn. We certainly have been experiencing this weather phenomenon in the summer of 2014 with frequent, if not daily, heavy rain storms and multiple flash flood advisories issued throughout the area.
