A Personal Note About the Flood, Resources Included

Hello Friends,

It is my most sincere wish that you and your loved ones in a safe and dry place. The past week has been one of  unprecedented weather events, affecting so many people in our community and in the surrounding areas.

The one bright spot has been to see all our communities pull together with that Colorado spirit;  neighbors helping neighbors, friends and family pulling together to offer support and resources, so many people asking how they can help with their donations of time and money.  To that end, I have put together a list of links to resources and information outlets below.  In addition, I have attached helpful information provided by FEMA, and the Denver Post.

Don’t hesitate to give me a call if you need anything or have any questions.

Sincerely,
Lenny Maiocco

AMERICAN RED CROSS:

Flood Insurance

If you have surface water or seepage through walls coming into your home, this may be covered under a flood insurance policy.  If you have flood insurance and need to file a flood claim, please call your insurer.  Only your insurer can tell you what will be covered under your insurance policy.

One resource for flood information is as follows:

If you have water damage, please immediately get professional advice from a professional restoration company on how to clean it up. The threat of mold growing in your home happens rapidly after experiencing water damage.  You want to make sure you use a local reputable company with good references (online reviews can help with this). These types of disasters can bring in outside companies, that don’t always do quality work and they may be hard to find once the work has been completed.

REPAIRS & REBUILDING

“In this time of need, ReSource is the community hub for rebuilding supplies, tools for removing, fixing, and preparing for the future. Between now and the end of the year those who experienced flood damage will receive a free membership to the ReSource Tool Library.  This membership provides access to over 2,000 tools including plumbing snakes, flooring nailers, carpet kicker and much more.  In addition to waiving the membership fee to the ReSource Tool Library, those repairing from flood damage will receive 10% off materials purchased including lumber siding, insulation,  cabinets and more.
