Is it safe to clean up mouse poo in Golden, Wheat Ridge or Evergreen?

12/1/2017 (Permalink)

At one time or another, most people have found they were sharing their home with mice.

What happens when you discover the mice have taken over an area of your home?

Even after the mice have gone, is it safe to clean up what they’ve left behind?                              

Mice and their droppings can carry more than 35 different types of bacteria, virus and other diseases.

Since mice ‘go’ on the move, that stuff can be everywhere! One must use extra precautions when cleaning up where the mice left off. In our dry climate the Hantavirus, carried by some mouse varieties, can be very harmful to humans. It is important to NOT sweep or vacuum the droppings, as this can disturb dust particles and feces, thus the germs and viruses they carry. Do not disturb their nests for the same reason. In instances where they have made your attic their community all contaminated insulation should be removed and replaced.

How then does one go about cleaning up this toxic mess? The purchase of a full respirator (not just a cloth mask) a pair of rubberized gloves, plenty of trash bags, towels and a work outfit you are willing to throw away are the start of what you would need, OR, just ONE thing, our phone number.

Call SERVPRO of Golden/Wheat Ridge/Evergreen at 303-279-8055 and let us help you clean up what your unwanted guests dropped. Our team of trained and certified technicians has the proper equipment to handle the hazardous mouse waste.  With one call you no longer need worry about mouse contaminants; we will take care of that for you. We will remove the feces, dispose of it, and apply an antimicrobial treatment to the affected area.

Winter is coming to Golden Wheat Ridge Evergreen

11/16/2017 (Permalink)

As the temperatures prepare to drop are you preparing too? Freezing temps can lead to frozen pipes, and frozen pipes lead to burst pipes and winter flooding! When disaster strikes it is important to act quickly. 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 water damage.

First shut off the water supply.

Second call SERVPRO of Golden Wheat Ridge Evergreen at 303-279-8055.

We answer the phones 24 hours a day and have 24 hour on call service. When time is of the essence rely on a company who understands that and is ready to help.

With these simple steps you can help PREVENT frozen pipes on those sub-zero days:

  • Insulate interior pipes that are along exterior walls (think kitchen sinks)
  • Leave under sink cabinet doors open to allow better air, and heat, circulation to the pipes.
  • Leave your faucets dripping or a very low trickle to help prevent freezing.
  • Set your heat to one steady temp during the cold snap rather than programing the heat to lower at night
  • Make sure exterior faucets water lines are shut off and the faucet itself is left open

Carpet Delamination

Water Damage Carpet Delamination Unsalvageable Carpet

You arrive home and your house has been flooded. It can be caused by broken pipes, appliances, toilets, roofing or even rain or ground water. In any case it’s a mess and you need to get the water out of the carpet before it starts buckling, delaminates (the layers come apart), mildews and or molds. Carpet water is an emergency and should be dried out immediately.

Getting the water out of the carpet as soon as possible will preserve the backing and save you time and money in the long run. Make sure you have a professional assess the damage and dry it out properly. Also be sure the carpet is seamed properly, the pad is removed, dried and is stretched back in place properly.  

Duct Cleaning Importance

Cleaning Duct Cleaning Importance Duct Cleaning Machine after.

Homeowners generally do not think about their ducts until spring when it is time to turn on the air conditioning. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association recommends getting your air ducts cleaned every three to five years (https://nadca.com/). I am amazed at the amount of debris that can come out of a ductwork system.


We recommend checking your system when you change your filter once a year and check for excess dirt. We also recommend doing research and consider cleaning your ductwork if you have pets, you are a heavy smoker, if a fire occurs in your home, suffer from allergies or asthma and after remodeling projects.

Vandalism & Graffiti

Cleaning Vandalism & Graffiti Tear Gas Cleanup 2016

Deliberate damage to property can cause traumatic or unsettling circumstances. Vandalism can come from police standoffs, drive by shootings and many other unimaginable types of damage and contamination. Vandalism can be spray paint or even disgruntled tenants who intentionally damage property (I have received this very call where the tenant deliberately cut up the carpet among many other things). Broken windows and other destruction can also cause water and or mold damage. Graffiti can be tough to remove without proper resources and expertise.


We recommend that you don’t try to clean it up yourself, especially if you suspect it may be contaminated. In most cases it is covered under your homeowners insurance. Call a professional. We are here to help you in any situation!
