What’s up water damage Denver friends. Hope you are warmer than I am. It is. Oh, it just went up literally 30 seconds ago. It was one degree. It is now three degrees. Woo. Three degrees, seven o’clock in the morning. That means every 30 seconds it will arise. Two more degrees. So we should be above freezing here shortly. Probably not. But um, Holy smokes is it nippy out? And it’s interesting to see the way people drive and the way people react and all sorts of different weather. But for Denver, the last a couple of days we have had, um, definitely, uh, a cold spell, which is okay, it’s wintertime. But uh, starting last Friday, the,

the word, the term snow squall was used to describe a weather pattern that was moving through the Metro area. Still haven’t figured out what a snow squall is. Um, but um, I guess it was a thing for just a little bit. What I do know last Friday is that it was pretty windy. Like, you know, there wasn’t, it wasn’t like it was snowing real hard, but the wind was just messing with the snow. So it was kind of limited visibility kind of made it look a little worse than it probably was, but maybe that’s what a snow swallows don’t really know. So that happened Friday. Saturday it was like in the 60s, I think Sunday it may have touched 70 and then it was bright back down to crazy, uh, wintery type weather, um, Monday and Tuesday and now Wednesday, um, sky’s are clear. No snow, no precipitation, but um, Oh, it’s seven degrees. Woo. Maybe it’ll be t-shirt weather here in a couple of hours. Um,

we need to be aware of what the atmosphere does when temperatures fluctuate like this and it’s not only applicable for, you know, roads and sidewalks and how we get around. Super important for that, but it’s really something to think about for all services and understand that your home, your property, your workplace, it is indirect. It is a direct hit on that building, on all of those different materials, the foundation, anything vertical, the mechanics, the roofing system, the gutter system, the landscaping, everything that goes into the installation, everything that goes into the construction of any sort of a, of a structure. It is reacting and acting 24 seven three 65 to what the weather conditions are outside. And this is not breaking news. I don’t imagine anybody’s super surprised by this, but we can avoid the elements. We can coincide warm up, go inside, cool down. You’re outside, you’re hot, jump in the pool, you’re outside, you’re cold, put a coat hat on. And we do that

to stay comfortable. You get too hot. Your body can undergo some very, very intense serious things. You get too cold. The same thing can happen. So as just a survivalist mechanism, we naturally want us find that state of equilibrium and at least attempt to be comfortable as much as possible. We are living breathing organisms, but so our buildings and there sometimes I think we get away from understanding that dynamic and treating buildings. Once they’re put up, whether it’s a house or some massive football stadium like it’s built, it’s there, it’s not going anywhere. It’s good when in fact that is probably the furthest thing from the truth, especially in a home or an area where there’s windows, there’s doors, you shut everything up. You’re basically creating kind of a separate environment from the outside. That home has to breathe, that home has to be able to exchange air. It’s got to be able to do its thing and it’s gotta be able to be protected from the outside elements to be able to do that successfully. I’ve never been into extreme of cold temperatures, definitely been to Canada, been pretty far North and been up in the mountains a lot in the cold winter months here.

And to have, have a building up there that can adapt and be and be protected from the elements as it gets. So super cold. It’s something that’s actually pretty impressive and what we deal with constantly, the water damage Denver dynamic of moisture evaporation, the gasses that he met from liquids changing properties, the organic material that’s involved in a potential water damage Denver loss, and also even in a mold loss, what may have started off as a water damage Denver issue may vary quickly become a situation with mold and and growth and all sorts of air quality issues because of the way that environment it’s taken care of. If you’ve ever noticed on, on houses, on like eaves or up kind of on second stories there are, there are little greats, there are little vents.

Water Damage Denver | And Air Exchange Could Be Good!

I know as a kid I never really understood that. Why would you want, why would you want a anything to be able to come in or go out? Why not seal that up nice and solid and

[inaudible]

not allow any bugs or critters or whether it’s the hotter

cold

to come in or out. Well, it’s because that building needs to breathe, that house needs to breathe. That exchange of air is incredibly important to making sure ideal conditions exist. And yeah, you might go up in your attic and it might be super cold in the winter. It might be incredibly, you know, unfathomably hot in the summer. But those events, those eaves that allow the attic to breathe are necessary for your home to maintain a healthy indoor environment. I always thought fans and bathrooms were funny. I thought that they were, honestly, I thought you turn them on just so it would make noise so you wouldn’t embarrass yourself if you went into the bathroom.

But

they are specifically designed to move air

and to specifically remove

moisture in the buildup that probably most likely comes in bathrooms.

Mmm.

And allow it to evaporate and move. You know, it’s vented to probably outside or sometimes I’ve seen them just straight up vented end of the attic, which is kind of weird. It’s not

not correct, but uh,

there that moisture needs to go somewhere. It can’t just stay. I’m sure you’ve gone into a, a steamy bathroom after a shower and it’s kind of cool. It’s kind of foggy in there. It’s a

kind of feels good sometimes in a,

in a bathroom that has a ton of humidity in it and lots of steam and it feels comfortable. But if that air, if that bathroom stay stagnant, if no air is moving, there’s a lot of material in that bathroom that’s going to be affected by just being constantly wet and having that much humidity in there. Not really something we consider a water damage Denver situation, but over time it’s probably got a high probability that mold is going to happen, that there could be something that needs to be remediated. So as you look at buildings as consider your house or your property, we definitely want to prevent against water damage Denver possibilities. But we also wanted to understand the dynamics of air movement of air exchanges and the ability for the living, breathing organism that is your home or workplace. The ability to, to function and to acclimate to whatever’s going on in the environment to the best of its ability. So, um, another thing to look at, probably don’t have time to get too much more into specifics right now, but think about that as you take a peak at your home or work place and understand that in order to maintain a healthy indoor environment, that building needs to breathe.

That’ll do it for today. If you do have a water damage Denver loss or a loss of any kind that we can help with, please reach out. We’d be happy to assist. But until then, you stay safe.
