Yesterday, a blog was written about the one year anniversary after the floods in Northern Colorado. The area has come very far, but still has a way to go before it will be back to the original state. This struggle to restore what was damaged by immense levels of water is well documented. Many people have tried to figure out the best way to manage the funds and the resources and it is never an easy situation. Nevertheless, the organizations and the companies that have been involved have done some great work, so far. Many pictures depicting the differences between September 13, 2013 and today have been taken and it is truly an incredible sight to see how much many of those families have been through. Nevertheless, the fight to make sure that these four hundred families that have been affected goes on.
One thing that everyone will need to make sure of in the future is whether or not they have insurance coverage. One of the most troubling things to hear about the floods, aside from the fact that looters actually started to steal things from people’s homes, was that only 17% of the families that were affected by the floods had flood insurance on their house. Obviously, this is a very big issue moving forward. We all want to make sure that people in our community are well and taken care of and that is a big step for a number of families that may be in peril of this happening to them again. Fortunately, this flood was actually a one hundred year flood. The rarity means that they probably do not need to plan on it happening again, although global climate change may have something else to say about this.
Looking year, there are still several things that need to be done in the communities. One of the biggest issues that is still looming is cleaning up the water damage. Water damage can be a particularly big issue because it often affects the ceilings and can lead to increased amounts of mold in the house. Mold can be deadly, so one of the most important aspects of the clean up process is to ensure that all of the mold is killed and taken care of. This takes a professional company to do a lot of the time and means that more and more of the time is taken to be sure that one hundred percent of the mold is killed. Restoration Eze is one company that has experience in water damage clean up and restoration. They would be able to help in just about any kind of circumstance. Although I do not believe, that they participated at all in the clean up in Northern Colorado, this is definitely a company that you could call on should anything happen to you or your family’s home. It is always nice to have those sorts of options in the world. Hopefully you never have to use them and you can forget all of this information.
