Commercial Water Damage Prevention Tips for Ken Caryl?

New Lake in Ken Caryl?

You would never know by looking at this picture that this hallway had been underwater a day ago. A plumbing valve failed over the weekend in our Ken Caryl offices, and water ran its course through the building until the water main was shut off two days later. What a mess. There was water up to the baseboards in the hallway!

My insurance adjuster told me to call SERVPRO® of Lakewood-Ken Caryl. Their team arrived quickly and immediately began extracting the water from the building using powerful industrial-grade extraction machines. After the water was extracted, they set up air movers and blowers and documented the drying process to ensure the area was restored to normal moisture levels.

They replaced the failed valve and cleaned, disinfected, and deodorized the building. Now you would never know there had been a tiny lake in the building!

SERVPRO® of Lakewood-Ken Caryl has years of experience restoring water damage in Ken Caryl and offer these tips from the Insurance Information Institute to maintain your indoor plumbing systems:

  • Inspect appliance hoses and faucets.  Check hoses leading to water heaters, dishwashers, washing machines, and refrigerator ice makers. Immediately replace any hoses that have cracks or leaks and replace them all every five to seven years.
  • Inspect showers and tubs. Check the seal and caulking around showers and tubs to make sure they are watertight and reseal if necessary.
  • When away on vacation, shut off the water supply to the washing machine and never leave the house while the washer or dishwasher is running
  • Know the location of the main water shut-off valve in your home. Being able to locate and shut off the main water supply quickly will save stress, money, and time.
  • Install an emergency pressure release valve in your plumbing system. This will protect against the increased pressure caused by freezing pipes and can help prevent your pipes from bursting.
  • Check plumbing and heating pipes. Look closely for cracks and leaks and have any necessary repairs made immediately.

Water Damage Prevention Tips for Lakewood?

7/5/2021 (Permalink)

A basement is shown with water seeping into it. We respond to water damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Jefferson County.

SERVPRO® of Lakewood-Ken Caryl responds to water damage emergencies throughout the year in Lakewood and offer these tips from the Insurance Information Institute to prevent water seepage into a basement:  

  • Reseal your basement. Water in the basement is often caused by cracks in building foundations or floor slabs. If you notice water seepage after heavy rain when you've never had a problem, it may mean that your once-waterproof cement floors and basement walls have deteriorated. Painting vulnerable areas with water sealant can prevent seepage.
  • Make sure water drains away from the building. Seepage is exacerbated by soil that has settled in a way to make water flow toward the building. After a storm, and especially if the ground is already saturated, rainwater that flows towards the building goes down the outside of the foundation wall potentially through any cracks.
  • Install a backwater valve. Though less common than other causes of basement water, sewer backups are messy. Learn more about your sewer responsibilities and install and maintain a backwater valve, which allows sewage to go out, but not come back in.

A SERVPRO technician is shown extracting storm water from a floor. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Jefferson County.

Did you know that floods are the most common natural disaster in the United States? Flash floods can happen at any time and with very little warning. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) floods result from rain, snow, coastal storms, storm surges, and overflows of dams and other water systems. SERVPRO® of Lakewood-Ken Caryl has been mitigating storm damage for Lakewood residents for many years. Here is some information from FEMA to help you prepare for a flood:

Preparing for a Flood
Make a plan for your household, including your pets, so that you and your family know what to do, where to go, and what you will need to protect yourselves from flooding. Learn and practice evacuation routes, shelter plans, and flash flood response. Gather supplies, including non-perishable foods, cleaning supplies, and water for several days, in case you must leave immediately or if services are cut off in your area.

In Case of Emergency
Keep important documents in a waterproof container. Create password-protected digital copies. Protect your property. Move valuables to higher levels. Declutter drains and gutters. Install check valves. Consider a sump pump with a battery.

Lake in Lakewood Basement?

I was in the middle of a basement conversion when a powerful storm came through, and my sump pump failed.
