Avoid Water Damage When the Snow Melts

Ice and snow on outside pipes If you experience water damage as a result of frozen pipes, SERVPRO® of Greater Boulder is Here to Help make the damage "Like it never even happened."

We are so grateful to see spring on the horizon! As Coloradans, we appreciate the winter season, but it is nice to see the seasons change and the warmer weather return. With that, it is important to do all you can to avoid water damage during the spring thaw.

When the snow starts to melt and the ice begins to thaw, it is crucial that you are ready to handle the excess water to keep your home and property dry.

Keep the Water Moving

The best way to keep water out of your home and away from your basement is to encourage it to flow down and away from your property. Make sure your gutters are clear and free of debris, ice chunks or snowpack. This may be hard to do if your gutters are frozen solid right now, but once it starts to break up, get up on a ladder and clear it all away!

Heavy snow accumulations and ice dams can also be detrimental to your roof. Try to keep snow off of your roof by removing it after each storm, and do a full investigation of your roof and shingles as soon as you are able. This allows you to catch any damage quickly so you can address the situation right away.

Be Prepared

As the snow begins to melt away, we are at risk of all different kinds of scenarios! Since we are in the foothills of the mountains, runoff can quickly become a problem and flash flooding is possible at any time.

Make sure the storm drains near your property are clear of blockages and get anything up off of the ground that you don’t want to get wet. Even just an inch of water where it shouldn’t be can cause devastating effects.

Anything that is not waterproof or tied down should be placed up high in your garage or moved inside your home, and certainly do not leave any personal keepsakes or possessions in a position to be ruined.

Preventing Further Damage

If you do end up walking down into your basement and discovering standing water, don’t panic! While the situation may seem overwhelming right now, your SERVPRO of Greater Boulder team can handle the cleanup. Give us a call right away, and we will work hard to ensure your home is returned to its pre-damaged state.

The faster you call us, the better chance you have of avoiding long-term or structural damage to your home. Over time, lingering water or moisture can lead to mold growth, degradation of your beams or walls and even destroyed concrete over time. We are ready to handle your water disaster any day of the week!

Did the melting snow make its way into your home? We are here to help.

Late Summer Fire Safety in Boulder County, CO

fire damage caused by debis and pine needles and leaves in boulder co Leaves, pine needles, and other debris puts your home in danger of being affected by a fire.

It is summertime in Colorado! While we all love the fun activities that come with this time of year, it is important to remember that fire danger is also a lot higher. Feel safe leaving home to go paddleboard at Gand Lake for the day by prepping your house or business to be able to withstand a fire, should it come your way!

FEMA has some great recommendations on how to protect your property:


Roofs are the most at risk part of your property! Shingles and other roofing materials should use Class A non combustible materials. Eaves should have short overhangs and flat edging. Embers can catch on lifted edges or eaves, starting a fire. 


Install metal wire mesh to catch embers and keep them from blowing into your vents. Place fire blocks into the foundation and vents to starve any fire of oxygen and prevent fire from spreading. 


Create defensible space around your home or business to reduce risk of a fire reaching your property. 30 feet surrounding your home should be cleared of flammable vegetation and other combustible materials. Regularly clear out debris from gutters and rooftops.

Should you be in need of assistance following a fire at your property, SERVPRO of Greater Boulder is here for you! Call SERVPRO for help with fire damage at (303)494-2000 day or night 365 days a year.
