Water & Flood Damage Restoration in the Roaring Fork Valley
Do you have a flood emergency?
Discovering water damage in your home or business—whether from a flood, a dishwasher malfunction, or a sewer backup—can feel devastating. And it can be a serious problem if not dealt with properly. In addition to causing damage, water can also spread contaminants that may lead to disease. A quick response to water intrusion is imperative due to the invasive properties of moisture:
- Within minutes, moisture-sensitive surfaces swell and disfigure. Paper goods (books, documents, pictures) can be ruined and stains from furniture start to appear on carpeting, which can be permanent.
- Within hours, drywall softens and warps, and wooden furniture can be permanently damaged. If carpet becomes delaminated (the primary backing separates from the secondary backing), it can cause irreparable damage.
- Within days, fungi and bacteria begin to grow and spread. Foul odors start to permeate your property.

Mold Inspection, Testing, & Remediation
No homeowner or business owner wants to hear that they have mold. Mold spreads quickly and can cause severe respiratory problems, especially in infants, children, the elderly, and those with health issues. Depending on the extent of the mold, a property can even be declared uninhabitable due to the threat it poses to the health of the occupants.
Mold occurs in damp areas and is often caused by water damage or flooding. Mold can also be the result of a current water leak or improper water leak clean-up from a previous issue. Mold can be present in carpet, wall interiors, floorboards, and ceilings, as well as easily spotted locations. HRS’s experts will determine the source of the mold, remove all traces of the mold, and repair or replace the damaged structures, ensuring the issue that caused the mold is remediated.
Due to the possible toxicity of the mold in your home or business, it’s important to have mold removal handled by professionals. Our mold remediation specialists are IICRC certified in Applied Microbial Remediation, ensuring all aspects of the mold abatement are handled safely.
Trauma clean-up and bio-cleaning is not a subject people give much thought to until they need the service. When dealing with a crime scene at your home or business, or with the aftermath of a fatality, the emotional toll can be overwhelming. HRS professionals can help ease the burden of the situation by eliminating all trace of the death or incident. This includes removing unsafe items and substances such as blood, other bodily fluids, and filth, all of which can contain biological hazards. Sanitizing a trauma situation involves eradicating microscopic particulates such as bacteria and viruses to ensure a clean and healthy space.

Asbestos is commonly found in older buildings, both residential and. It can be found in numerous construction materials, including concrete, asphalt, roof shingles, pipes, siding, wall board, floor tiles, joint compounds, adhesive, and insulation. The US banned the use of asbestos in the manufacturing of most materials in 1978, which is why we assume properties constructed before 1980 could have asbestos present. However, it’s important to note that in our increasingly global marketplace, many building materials are imported from abroad, and not all countries have the same stringent guidelines as the US. Because of this, it is possible to come across asbestos in newer structures, especially commercial buildings.
The hazardous nature of asbestos abatement calls for professional remediation to ensure safe removal and disposal. HRS will extract all asbestos from your property to bring it back to a safely inhabitable space. Once the asbestos remediation is complete, our restoration team can rebuild the affected areas.

This could include structural repairs, drywall, plumbing, electrical, and/or landscape replacement … just to name a few.
