Good morning, good afternoon, good evening and good night to our water damage Denver friends across the country and around the world, wherever you may be. However you may be listening. Thank you for joining us on another big foot restoration podcast of the gold. So water damage Denver. Friends, I’ve got um, some perspective for us to consider today. Um, I think that anybody that literally has woken up in the Denver Metro area on, on a this side of, of the rocky mountains and has called Denver home for more than not even more than one night one night realizes how just stupid spoiled. We are too to call this place home and to have the resources, the recreation, the climate, the seasons
that we enjoy and hopefully don’t take for granted. But it’s easy, right? I mean you get, you get used to things and you go through, you know, if you’re born here, if you’re a native, it’s all you’ve maybe ever known and maybe have never stopped to consider how different it is from just about everywhere else in the world. I’m sure there’s similar climates and similarities with other cities and things across the u s but it’s crazy. Like in my opinion, I’ve lived in a handful of places, um, not for crazy extended periods of time, but in college on different work ventures or potential kind of career opportunities both kind of in central United States and more on the the east coast. Um, and it’s just, it’s not that every, uh, every other place has horrible weather or horrible climates or anything like that at all. It’s not that at all. But Denver, the Colorado region is just way different. And maybe it’s not for everybody, but it’s for me, I’ll tell you that. And, and so
as we have this situations that we have and there’s no spot on earth that’s immune from, from potential restoration needs. Um, W we’re just boiled rotten with, with our climate, with the fact that we have four legitimate seasons and each one has its definite benefits and it’s definite amazing things that, that we can do and we can see and kind of the way nature reacts as a result of each one. So without rambling, here’s, here’s kind of the point of, of going down this rabbit hole and talking a little bit about weather and climate from, you know, spot to spot in the u s um, so water damage Denver friends as, as you probably know or understand Denver has what can definitely be the described as a dry climate. And it’s not, it’s not that it’s not without moisture or that it’s without moisture. Um, we have actually this year, this season we’ve had a fair amount.
We had some real late spring snows, uh, that had an incredible amount of moisture in them and we’ve actually had some pretty consistent rain. And so I think our moisture index is, are just doing fine. And, uh, that’s not the point at all. But just relative to humidity levels throughout the United States, it, that’s what I’m describing is dry. And that really is, uh, a help to companies like us. Um, any really, any company that’s dealing with water damage Denver, um, restoration t type things using, using the climate to our advantage is, is so incredibly helpful compared to states and regions that have high humidity levels. You’re, you’re kind of fighting an uphill battle and you’re fighting against the conditions on the outside of the structure as well as on the inside of the structure. So to put a bit of an illustration to it, if we have two identical homes and you know, one in Denver and let’s say one in a, maybe a little bit further east, perhaps, um, Kansas or Oklahoma and Missouri, this time of year, the relative humidity outside is going to be, you know, potentially
it’s 50, 60, 70% greater in those other states as compared to the number. So if you have, if we have just say, you know, we get some crazy two hour rainstorm that drops, you know, four or five inches of rain within that timeframe and there’s just, you know, flood issues, water damage Denver issues here, water damage issues out in those areas, something needs to happen, right? They’re going to call, you know, homeowners, property owners, they’re going to call restoration companies to come take care of, of their situation. So if there’s a flooded basement were flooded, crawl space or whatever is going on, obviously the first first goal of, of the restoration company is to get water evacuated, you know, pull any, any standing water, any water that they possibly can with what other, whatever means necessary. But [inaudible] after that you’ve got material, you’ve got structure, you’ve got content that needs to be dried out, it needs to be dried out quickly and it needs to be dried out effectively.
So what do you think, kind of rhetorical question here, but what do you think would be more helpful? Is outside conditions in both areas. Would it be more helpful to have a low humidity, low relative humidity outside than higher? Yes, it would. Good. I can see those hands being raised as good, good answer on the first one. Obviously crazy high committee outside is going to have an effect on the atmospheric conditions inside. Obviously you want, if you, even if you button up a structure, it’s still gonna have an effect and a super high profile instructor on an industry that I, I learned, um, a ton of stuff from and continue to, you know, he actually promotes the idea that you, you can use humidity or non humidity to your advantage and getting the results that you want, um, as you’re dealing with a structure and there’s many different kind of angles to it in many different ways to, to go about it, you know, depending on the situation.
But in, in more than one class that I’ve taken from this gentleman, he suggests quite simply to open up windows sometimes and let, uh, let the outside dry levels of humidity, dryer levels of humidity work with you to balance out some of the situations that you have going on the inside. So, um, just looking at kind of what’s going on across, across the country right now with the flooding and uh, the different, um, just kind of severe weather patterns that are hitting, um, states a bit, a bit east of us. It, it’s something to keep in mind. And be thankful for water damage. Never friends. We have it incredible here. We, we get to enjoy pretty mild weather and even when we do get some craziness, no matter if it’s, you know, lots of moisture, lots of rain, lots of snow or we do have dry spills sometimes too. And we’ve definitely had uh, droughts in the not so distant past. We’ve definitely had dry spells to where, you know, fire danger is a big concern, especially, you know, in the mountains and, and uh, you know, dried out kind of areas where obviously there’s, you know, trees and all sorts of organic material to burn if the right conditions kind of ensue. So, um,
we have a nice, we were spoiled but that doesn’t mean that we, we aren’t immune from water damage Denver. We’re not immune from the potential for fire, smoke, mold, all those things still are in play. Just maybe not to the grid degree as other places in the country. So be thankful for where we are, what we have, what we get to experience, but a, in any case, big foot restorations here when you need our help. Seven two zero five seven, five foot.
Be Thankful. We’ll talk to you soon.
