A burglar is trying to break into a business. We restore commercial property damage 24-hours a day in Jefferson County.

Our Golden, Wheat Ridge, and Evergreen team restore property damage in Golden every year. According to an article published by The Hartford Insurance Group, the top cause of property and liability claims is burglary and theft. These claims amount to twenty percent of all commercial claims, with the average claim being $50,000. Regardless of size or industry, all businesses are targets of thieves, including retail stores, restaurants, office parks, medical offices, auto repair shops, and farms and ranches.

Record-Breaking Hailstorm in Lakewood?

5/9/2022 (Permalink)

Back windshield shattered from hail storm We are leaders in storm damage restoration services in Jefferson County.

Our Golden, Wheat Ridge and Evergreen team responds to storm damage throughout the year in Lakewood. In May of 2017, a supercell thunderstorm formed in the foothills west of Denver.

The National Weather Service reported that the supercell thunderstorm moved from the western suburbs to the northern suburbs and produced large damaging hail, strong winds, heavy rain, and flash flooding. Baseball-sized hail was reported, causing extensive damage to cars, homes, and businesses. Property damage occurred in many parts of Denver and the western suburbs, including Arvada, Lakewood, and Wheat Ridge. This May 8 storm is still the most expensive insured catastrophe in Colorado’s history. According to the Rocky Mountain Insurance Agency Association (RMIAA), the storm amounted to about $2.3 billion in damage. The RMIAA estimated more than 150,000 auto insurance claims and 50,000 homeowner insurance claims had been filed.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration measure hailstones by comparing them to the size of known objects:

  • Pea = 1/4 inch diameter
  • Mothball = 1/2 inch diameter
  • Penny = 3/4 inch diameter
  • Nickel = 7/8 inch
  • Quarter = 1 inch — hail quarter size or larger is considered severe
  • Ping-Pong Ball = 1 1/2 inch
  • Golf Ball = 1 3/4 inches
  • Tennis Ball = 2 1/2 inches
  • Baseball = 2 3/4 inches
  • Tea cup = 3 inches
  • Softball = 4 inches
  • Grapefruit = 4 1/2 inches

Hoarding Fire in Wheat Ridge Garage?

5/4/2022 (Permalink)

Items spill out of a hoarder’s garage. We restore fire damage 24-hours a day in Jefferson County.

Our Golden, Wheat Ridge, and Evergreen team restore fire damage in Golden every year. Here is some information about hoarding and fire risks from the National Fire Protection Association:

Why Hoarding Increases Fire Risks

  • Cooking is unsafe if flammable items are close to the stove or oven
  • Heating units may be too close to things that can burn, and they might also be placed on unstable surfaces. If a heater tips over into a pile, it can cause a fire.
  • Electrical wiring may be old or worn from the weight of piles. Pests could chew on wires, and damaged wires can start fires.
  • Open flames from smoking materials or candles in a home with excess clutter are very dangerous
  • Blocked pathways and exits may hinder escape from a fire

Hoarding Impacts First Responders

  • Hoarding puts first responders in harm’s way
  • Firefighters cannot move swiftly through a home filled with clutter
  • Responders can be trapped in a house when exits are blocked. They can be injured by objects falling from piles.
  • The weight of the stored items, especially if water is added to put out a fire, can lead to building collapse
  • Fighting fires is very risky in a hoarding home. It is hard to enter the house to provide medical care, and the clutter impedes the search and rescue of people and pets.

April Bomb Cyclone in Evergreen?

4/13/2022 (Permalink)

Road conditions after a 2021 spring snowstorm. We are trusted leaders in storm damage restoration in Jefferson County!

In March of 2019, the perfect conditions presented themselves to create “bombogenesis,” or a bomb cyclone that hit the Central United States from the Rockies across all of the Plains into the Upper Mississippi Valley that brought blizzard conditions, severe thunderstorms, and isolated flooding.

Our Golden, Wheat Ridge, and Evergreen team has been restoring storm damage for Evergreen residents for many years. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), bombogenesis occurs when:

  • A mid-latitude cyclone, or a “bomb cyclone,” rapidly intensifies over a 24-hour period
  • Most of the time, they accelerate and strengthen over the ocean as its central pressure drops at least 24 millibars in 24 hours
  • Bombogenesis causes high, intense winds that can cause power outages
    • They can cause blizzard conditions with heavy, blowing snow and white-out conditions
    • Rainfall on snow that can cause river flooding

April may bring more severe weather, so make sure you’re prepared.

Our local team in Golden, Wheat Ridge, and Evergreen have been restoring fire damage for Wheat Ridge residents and businesses for many years. Here are some extension cord safety tips from The Electrical Safety Foundation International (EFSI):

  • Do not substitute extension cords for permanent wiring
  • Do not run through walls, doorways, ceilings, or floors
  • Do not use an extension cord for more than one appliance
  • Multiple plug outlets must be plugged directly into mounted electrical receptacles; they cannot be chained together
  • Make sure the extension cord or temporary power strip is rated for the products to be plugged in and is marked for either indoor or outdoor use
  • Never use a cord that feels hot or is damaged in any way
  • Never use three-prong plugs with outlets with only two slots for the plug. Do not cut off the ground pin to force a fit. Never force a plug into an outlet if it doesn’t fit.

3/21/2022 (Permalink)

Mold grows on ceiling tiles in a commercial property. We mitigate and remediate mold problems for businesses in Jefferson County!

A small water leak in the attic of our convenience store was all it took for the mold to appear in my store. For weeks I had been smelling a musty odor that I could not place, and then one day, I looked up and saw mold growing on my ceiling! I knew I had to act fast, so I called the local team in Golden, Wheat Ridge, and Evergreen. Here are some of the tips they gave me for what to do while waiting for help to arrive:

March Thundersnow Storm in Wheat Ridge Area?

3/16/2022 (Permalink)

Lightning strikes in the sky above Colorado foothills. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Jefferson County!

Colorado thundersnow is a thing?

Yes, it is. My neighbor referred me to the restoration team in Wheat Ridge after a tree fell on my house after it was struck by lightning during a thundersnow storm. The team arrived quickly and removed the tree and tarped the roof, and boarded up the broken windows to prevent secondary damage from occurring from exposure. The next day they came back and repaired the roof damage and replaced the broken glass. Now you would never know there was any storm damage to my home!

March is a big snow month for Colorado, and thundersnow occurs here when there is a strong instability pattern in the atmosphere combined with moisture from a warm front. Although thundersnow is rare in most parts of the world, it is pretty common in Colorado. Thundersnow storms are similar to thunderstorms, except lightning occurs when it is snowing rather than when it is raining. Thundersnow storms are so unusual that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration monitors this weird weather via satellite!
