I’m not trying to bore you to death here, but this is, this is the dynamic of ground saturation and of what, what happens in an instance where you’ve got more water than what can reasonably be accepted by another material. So when we have the seasonal rains and in Denver we don’t, we don’t get just a slammed, like, especially like the, you know, the wet kind of middle part of our country’s experienced, the Midwest, he’s experiencing right now. You’ve got a lot of flooding, you’ve got a lot of major, major water damage. Denver, we are blessed beyond belief. We just don’t get that. But we have had some situations, you know, we had a huge one six, seven years ago. We have, we have stretches, you know, this time of year where just about every afternoon you’re gonna have the possibility of a thunderstorm. You’re going to have a possibility of quite a bit of rain.
And it just depends. Some days it’s not that bad. Maybe it’s a storm that hit you hard for five to 10 minutes and then it’s gone. And literally 10 minutes later the sun’s back out. And it’s quite honestly superhuman. It’s kind of sticky and it’s not the best, but it’s not much. But when you do get those thunderstorms that come in two, three, four, five days in a row, consistently dropping a ton of rain, it’s good. We love it for our plants. We love it for our lawns. We love it for a number of different reasons, but you’ve got to always remember that under every property, under every structure, doesn’t matter where, where it’s built, if it’s on this earth, it’s got what is referred to as a water table underneath it. And sometimes you can do research and you can figure out where that water table is, but a lot of times you legitimately don’t know.
Um, now you can make an educated guess. You know, if you’re in an area that’s, you know, what’s considered a flood plain or you know, different bay, you know, a certain type of basin, you might reasonably conclude that you live in an area where maybe that water table is a little higher than other places. Um, but again, in every, every spot on the earth you’re going to have a water table level and that’s going to basically allow you to predict or allow you to assume. At what point do you potentially have a water damage Denver situation on your hands. So, um,
Water Damage Denver people. It’s so good to have a few minutes with you here this morning. I apologize for the background noise, but a desperate times call for desperate measures. And so I can multitask. I can actually, um, respond to a job where they need our help and they need it asap. And I can also drop some beautiful nuggets of gold in your lap as far as water damage, Denver restoration tips, thoughts,
usually wet. Again for our climate here, for the Denver area, the Metro area, we can get quite a bit of rain. We can get quite a bit of moisture and not necessarily have to worry too much about groundswell, but just because it’s not unprecedented. I’ve seen it many, many times when we do have these consistent storms, you might start to see water in basement water in crawl spaces, water in areas that you don’t see water, um, damage. Denver. You’re not seeing water gushing over walls. You’re not seeing it pouring in egress windows necessarily, although that does happen. Um, but more often than not, what you’re seeing is water come up from the, uh, the foundation that foundation, the area around your foundation, whether you have a, a basement or not, more often, more likely if you do have a basement or something that’s underground that, that ground, that dirt, that sand has reached capacity and it has nowhere else to go.
So just like the sponge that we were talking about a couple of minutes ago, um, that sponge has reached its capacity. It’s as full as it can possibly be. And now that water has no, no place but to go somewhere else. And so it again, it goes out on the table. It finds that that crack in the table that allows it to travel, you know, and follow gravity. It finds that slant, that slight, um, unevenness that would suggest to it that it can disperse itself, um, easily by, you know, traveling down and dripping off the table onto the floor. Pretty much the exact same thing with, with a home [inaudible]. You know, if there’s any sort of failure within the walls of the basement or, or whatever, it’s gonna to find its way in through there. And it doesn’t always have to be necessarily a failure on the structure’s part.
You know, it’ll come up from below. Um, you know, not every structures aren’t going to be 100% water tight. You don’t want them to anyway, structures need to breathe. But it’s just a thing where we want, we want that not to be a huge surprise. We want people to understand that the, the potential for water damage Denver is there when that capacity is reached. And there can be some gray lines there. It can be maybe not always super obvious or, or make a ton of sense as to why it happened. Some areas more than others or some areas quicker than others, but it is a thing and so bit of a obvious one, but um, this time of year when we do have that, um, when we do have that constant afternoon shower, thunderstorm type thing, um, it’s just something to think about. Pleasure to be with you today. Hopefully you got a little nugget out of that. We’ll talk to you soon. Well it starts to disperse and if it’s on, if the sponges on a table, it’ll start to spread out. Maybe if the table slanted a little bit, it’ll start to drip down onto the floor. This is pretty obvious stuff and I’m, I’m not trying to be
