“During a cold snap we had a pipe freeze in our basement.  We called the plumber out and of course when he warmed them up they burst! I called Shilo with SERVPRO and she had her team on the phone with me in less than an hour.  They were here fast and on top of cleanup within hours! The team was polite, attentive and in constant communication. When it was time to remove the floor and dry wall they were clean, fast, together and did not spread mess anywhere. I am thankful for SERVPRO  of Broomfield/ Arvada team and would recommend them!!!

-Amy C.”

“We had a Soap tray fall off the shower tile in the kids bathroom. Woke up to water all over, and it had leaked into the garage. We called SERVPRO and they sent our Enrique, Houston and Brian. Not only did they show up within a few hours, they set up Dehumidifiers and Fans, cleaned up the excess water and because their response was SO fast, they ended up saving us THOUSANDS of dollars in damage. (seriously, all we need to do is put the soap tray back up). Houston and Brian were SO nice, so polite and extremely professional. They went WAY above and beyond my expectations in making sure there was no more water/moisture or any mold. They even crawled into the rafters of my garage multiple times with a moisture detector!

They did this while also dealing with the Marshall Fire damage in Superior Colorado (we live in Parker). PLEASE call these gentlemen if you need ANY sort of disaster recovery! I will absolutely call them if I (hopefully not) need any more of their services. Thank you Houston for the great communication as well!

Water Damage! Now What?!

4/15/2021 (Permalink)

Water damage in Arvada living room Water Damage is a nightmare, we can help!

If you've ever experienced water damage you know that there isn't much you can do to prepare you for the shock!

In the aftermath of a flood or other water damage, you usually end up staring at puddles and damaged flooring wondering, "Now what?" 

After the initial shock of the flooding, it's time to assess and do water damage repair— quickly! Wet materials start developing very serious problems like mold after around 24 hours. You don't have time to wait.

When you call SERVPRO of Broomfield/Arvada, we are immediately there to help you! Our customer care center is fully staffed 24 hours a day and ready to dispatch our Professionals directly to you! When you are dealing with water damage, immediate action is crucial. A delay of just a few hours can greatly increase the severity of the damage.

What you can expect

When our Professionals arrive they will identify and stop the water source and identify the type of water. The type of water contamination will affect the specific restoration processes used to restore your property. 

Believe it or not, there are three types of water.

  • White - water from rain, condensation, leaky pipes, etc.
  • Gray - slightly dirty water from dishwashers, washing machines, clean toilets, etc.
  • Black - comes from sewage or serious flooding from nearby rivers, etc. This water contains waste, bacteria, and other serious contaminants. Black water can cause very serious health effects, and you shouldn't try to clean it up yourself. 

After the water has been stopped and identified, our highly trained technicians will begin the water removal process. Depending on the amount of water, they may use powerful submersible pumps in addition to industrial strength, wet/dry vacuums. This step helps to reduce drying time and helps to prevent mold and secondary water damage.

Next, our Professionals will survey the extent of the water damage and inspect the area to discover the full extent of the water damage. They will also look for safety concerns and explain them to you. 

After the water removal step, your floors and walls may look dry at first glance, but they are still wet to the touch. Most building materials, like drywall and wood, are porous and will retain significant water. The retained water will cause these materials to warp, swell, or break down and can also cause mold damage. 

Next, our professionals will use specialized equipment, including industrial air movers and dehumidifiers, to remove water retained by building materials and other hard-to-access moisture. They’ll carefully monitor the progress using moisture meters until the materials are dry.

After the moisture has all been removed, your property’s walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely need professional cleaning. Our Professionals will clean your furniture, upholstery, clothing, and other restorable personal items, damaged by the water. 

The final step is restoration. Restoration is the process of restoring your home or business to its pre-water damage condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and installing new carpet or may entail major repairs, such as the reconstruction of various areas of your property. 

Water damage can be catastrophic in your home, especially if it’s been going on for a while. The good news is that SERVPRO of Broomfield/Arvada is here to help! The sooner you take action, and the sooner you call our Professionals the less disastrous the whole situation will be!

Does Your Broomfield Home Have a Mold Problem?

4/15/2021 (Permalink)

Mold growing in Broomfield bathroom Even in as dry of a climate as Broomfield, mold can spread through a home in as little as 48 hours.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Review: "Chris was very clear and responsive in setting up the job. He referred us to their partner, SERVPRO to GC the job . Specialty did a really good job of clearing the house of asbestos following a water leak. They were punctual and thorough. They were a bit haphazard about the removal of our fixtures... Screws and plumbing bits weren't kept with the fixtures. They left some mess... Tape and staples still in the wall, our screen left open, etc."

Water Damage Tips

8/27/2020 (Permalink)

Water damage in Arvada living room You can count on SERVPRO of Broomfield/Arvada to take care of any and all water losses.

Water damage can happen to your Arvada home or business in many different ways.

In this blog, we will outline some of the most common sources of water damage. It's very likely that you have had water damage at one point or another, or may know someone who has. 

If you think about water damaging your home, you might imagine the cause to be from a severe storm.  The unfortunate reality is that most water damages are caused when ordinary household appliances fail.  It's important to know the areas around your home that pose a threat for damage, and what to do after it happens. 

Washing Machines

Washing machine leaks are among the most common causes of flood damage in a home and can result in significant damage not only in the laundry room but also in adjacent rooms and areas.  Some laundry rooms are located on the second floor of homes thus multi-level damage can occur.  Remember to replace rubber and plastic hoses with reinforced steel braided hoses. Check connections periodically to make sure they are secure and replace the hoses every five years.

Sewer and Drain Backups

Sewer water has the potential to cause health issues, not to mention a disgusting smell. This can bring serious issues to the home or business owner. Water that backs up from a sewer is called "blackwater” and can contain all types of harmful contaminants. A professional cleanup company like SERVPRO of Broomfield/Arvada is highly recommended to help in the event that this happens. Call us!  We will respond immediately to make your home safe again.  

Bathroom Leaks 

Bathroom water leaks cause significant damage to a home. This is especially true if the bathroom is located upstairs. The main culprit is usually a supply line to the shower or toilet. We can't see the copper pipes that carry the water inside the walls, but we can see and inspect the supply line to the toilet. It's a good idea to replace the older line with a stronger braided one. These steel braided hoses are less likely to fail and are a proactive way to lessen the chance of having a leak. 

Frozen Pipes

Colorado has beautiful winters and thankfully, we can enjoy fun outdoor winter activities.  We can also experience extremely low temperatures.  When outdoor temperatures drop and stay low and cold for even a few days, homes and businesses are likely to suffer from frozen pipes that then burst because the water inside those pipes freezes.  As freezing water expands, it causes the pressure inside the pipes to increase which very likely can lead to bursting pipes. There are a few ways to help prevent this from happening: 

Be sure to blow out your sprinkler system and detach garden hoses from exterior spigots.  Insulate pipes, especially those close to outside walls, attics, and crawl spaces where the chance of freezing is greatest. Seal air leaks surrounding pipes and keep garage doors closed if there are water supply lines in the garage.  

The Refrigerator

The copper pipe that brings in water to the ice maker might have a bad or loose connection, or it could be pinched. Like the other appliances in our homes, the fridge has a water supply line with continuous pressure. If that line becomes loose or broken in any way, water will spill out until the source is turned off. It's a great idea to familiarize yourself with where to shut the water off!

Sump Pump Failure

If you have a basement, you understand the importance of a sump pump. Without one, water can seep into your basement and cause lots of damage. One of the most common causes of a flooded basement is a sump pump that stops working. This could be that the pump is old and mechanically broken, but most likely, it's due to a power supply loss. When storms roll through, we can at times lose power to our homes.  That's why it's so important to have a battery backup in place in the event this happens to you.

• Know the risks: subfreezing weather, exposed pipes, uninsulated areas

• A cold snap is a day or more of temperatures that don't rise above 20 degrees F

• Wrap exposed pipes with several inches of pipe insulation

• Invest in insulation for the areas that have pipes – it will save you money

• Don't worry about wasting energy by keeping the thermostat up – keep the indoor temperature at least 55 degrees F, even if there will be no one at home or at the office

• During a cold snap, cold water dripping through a tap will prevent the pipes from freezing

• There's no need to water the grounds anyway, so remove hoses from the taps

• Keep cabinet doors open in kitchens and bathrooms so the warm air will circulate around the pipes

SERVPRO of Broomfield/NW Adams County will remediate storm damage or water damage “Like it never even happened”, but strongly believes in the power of prevention.

Colder Weather means Freezing Pipes in Northglenn

Kitchen with standing water. Call SERVPRO® of Broomfield/NW Adams County to clean up standing water.

The fall weather is finally approaching which means winter will be here before we know it. Unfortunately for the residents of Northglenn, that means pipes will freeze which can lead to pipes bursting and flooding parts of the residential area. A flooded kitchen is not very fun to deal with, but luckily the trained professionals at SERVPRO® of Broomfield/NW Adams County know just what to do, and we get it done quickly.

Here are some common guidelines to follow when preventing and thawing frozen pipes:

  • Remove and drain all outside hoses and close the inside valves
  • Add additional insulation to basements, crawl spaces and attics
  • Keep garage doors closed if there are water supply lines located there
  • During very cold Northglenn nights, keep kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors open to allow warm air to flow around the pipes
  • Allow the pipes to have a small drip throughout the night as well

If your pipes are frozen, try the following:

  • Carefully run a small flow of water through the faucet as this will allow the ice to melt while the water is running
  • Apply heat to the frozen section of the pipe using an electric heating pad, a hair dryer, or towels wet with hot water
  • If the pipe ends up bursting, call SERVPRO® of Broomfield/NW Adams County to help clean up and restore the affected area(s)
