Denver water damage is never out of the news for long, considering the long list of Front Range flooding and water intrusion risks we face with the changing seasons. We’re far from out of the woods for harsh winter cold snaps that can freeze, then rupture, water pipes in our homes and businesses. Soon, the rains that will become the monsoon will begin to sputter and spit at us, to be accompanied soon after by runoff and groundwater intrusion pressure.

Denver Water Damage Always Lurking

Something is always trying to shove water in our homes and businesses, and Denver water damage doesn’t even need the natural forces to invite it in. Our own infrastructure or, simply, plumbing can wreak havoc, flooding our homes and businesses. Consider last month’s water main break in Denver, and the havoc it continues to inflict on many area families and businesses.

Keep These Tips in Mind to Reduce Water Damage Risks

  • Check your property insurance. Make sure you understand whether and how it covers flooding and that its coverage makes sense in your area.
  • Keep your property maintenance up, especially water-handling features and structures such as drainage ditches, gutters, downspouts and basement sump pumps.
  • Perform regular inspections of plumbing and sewage equipment and hardware, watching for signs of failure and damage.
