Proper flood mitigation if your home sustained flood damage
We are seeing many cases where homeowners are not mitigating the
flood damage in their homes properly before rebuilding or repairing.
This can lead to many problems down the road such as mold, structural
and electrical issues. Besides removing all affected carpet and drywall,
all electrical wiring will need to be replaced as well. Homes need to be
thoroughly dehumidified and measured for moisture in the basement,
crawl space, floor joists and remaining walls before rebuilding can begin.
Many homes will take weeks or more to completely dry out.
Professional mold and electrical inspections and restorations/mitigations
are highly recommended. Below is a list of Colorado based companies
who provide flood clean-up and mitigation. This list was primarily derived
from the list of certified professionals of the IIRC – Institute of
Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (http://www.iicrc.org/).

How will the flood impact the Colorado Real Estate Market?
Long story short, this natural disaster is not unlike others (wildfires, etc). Many believe the property values in the affected area will be negatively affected for at least a year.
