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. To avoid a burglary, be sure to secure valuables, make sure the property is well lit at night, and have a good security system in place.

A small water leak in the attic of our convenience store was all it took for the mold to appear in my store.

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:

What to Do

  • Stay out of affected areas

Snow removal 

  • Safety first!

  • Monitor your roof’s snow load to ensure it does not exceed its maximum capacity
  • Conduct an assessment of the snow and ice equivalent 
  • If you have excessive snow or ice dams, have your snow removal team safely remove the snow and ice dams

Sewage Backup in Golden Business?

11/15/2021 (Permalink)

A “Men’s Room” sign leads the way to public bathrooms. We respond to sewer backup emergencies 24-hours a day in Jefferson County.

Sewer water is unsanitary and can carry dangerous bacteria and viruses. SERVPRO® of Golden/Wheat Ridge/Evergreen technicians have the specialized training, equipment, and protective gear necessary to safely clean and restore commercial sewage backups. There are three categories of contaminated water, as follows:

Category 1: “Clean Water”

  • This is water from a clean source, such as a broken clean water supply line or faucet.
  • If left untreated can degrade into category two or three

Category 2: “Gray Water”

This water has a significant level of contamination that could cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Sources for category two water may include washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces or dishwasher overflow.

  • It may contain bacteria and viruses
  • It can quickly degrade into category three if left untreated

Category 3: “Black Water”

This water is grossly unsanitary and could cause severe illness or death if ingested, and all contact should be avoided. Sources for category three water could include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.

  • May contain untreated sewage, harsh chemicals, and microbes
  • Water from flooding rivers or sewer backup

A restaurant in Golden, Colorado is shown with water covering the dining room floor. We restore commercial water damage in Jefferson County.

A pipe burst, and our restaurant in Downtown Golden flooded overnight. When I came to open the restaurant, I walked onto a floor covered with water. The restaurant was set to open in four hours, and I needed to act fast. I called SERVPRO® of Golden/Wheat Ridge/Evergreen and they came out and went to work immediately. They inspected and assessed the damage and came up with a plan we approved.

They repaired the broken pipe and extracted all the water from the floors. They set up industrial-grade air movers and blowers to remove the excess water and clean, sanitize, and disinfect all water-damaged areas. They monitored and documented the drying process and helped me with the insurance process and paperwork. Thanks, SERVPRO!

Water is being extracted from an office copier room. We are trusted leaders in commercial water damage restoration in Jefferson County.

We arrived to find the copier room in our real estate office covered in about an inch of water. A pipe broke and flooded the floor at night, and employees were surprised to “splash” into work the next morning. Our insurance adjuster told us to call SERVPRO® of Golden/Wheat Ridge/Evergreen’s quick response time and fast mitigation saved us from a more time-consuming and expensive repair. They extracted the water quickly and installed powerful air movers and blowers. They monitored and documented the drying process to ensure our building was restored to normal humidity levels.

Powerful air movers are being used to dry a flooded building. We are leaders in water damage mitigation in Jefferson County.

Underwater in Wheat Ridge?

When I arrived to work on Monday I never expected to walk onto a flooded floor, but that’s what happened. Evidently, there was a pipe failure that caused water to gush through the building all weekend long. We called SERVPRO® of Golden/Wheat Ridge/Evergreen, and they came out right away to inspect and assess the damage.

Powerful Extraction Equipment

While some team members worked on repairing the plumbing issue, the other team used truck-mounted and portable extraction units to extract the water from the floors and carpeting.

Drying, Cleaning, and Sanitization

Industrial-strength air movers and dehumidifiers were used to remove the remaining moisture from the air. The drying process was documented to ensure normal moisture levels were restored to the area.

After the area was completely dry, they cleaned, sanitized, and deodorized the flooded rooms, returning the area to preloss condition quickly and efficiently.

Breakroom disaster

After the fire was extinguished and the first responders from the Golden Fire Department left the scene I was left with the sooty, smoky, and waterlogged remains of what had been the employee kitchen and break room.

Keep Your Evergreen Office Prepared for Fire

3/2/2021 (Permalink)

Office fires in Evergreen are more common than you might think. If you have a break room in your office or small business, it probably contains a coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator and/or other small appliances. You should also include a fire extinguisher in there somewhere! SERVPRO of Golden / Wheat Ridge / Evergreen wants to remind you that fires can start as easily as turning on one of these appliances. There could be a short somewhere in the wiring or something inside the microwave could catch fire. Unfortunately, the possibilities are real and they do happen. Your workplace should have a training session on how to use fire extinguishers. If the owner of the business has not done that, please look into setting up a training session. Local fire departments are usually happy to assist with this training, and they can provide some real-life examples of ways to practice fire safety. 

If your break room (or any other area of your office building) catches on fire, you will likely have smoke damage as well as damage from the fire. That is where SERVPRO of Golden / Wheat Ridge / Evergreen comes in. We are here to clean up the damage and make your Evergreen building look new again. We are open 24/7 and we show up prepared. Please do not hesitate to call us if you need our services. We are Here to Help.

Commercial lighting equipment safety information for Evergreen

3/1/2021 (Permalink)

According to the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association), one of the most common causes of commercial fires is electrical and lighting equipment. This type of fire is not easily predicted, as the lighting equipment can look totally fine on the outside in your Evergreen business.SERVPRO of Golden / Wheat Ridge / Evergreen wants to share the following information about commercial fires and how safety equipment helps to lessen the damage and can assist in preventing any bodily injury:

  • Wet pipe sprinklers installed in the ceilings of commercial buildings are very effective in helping to fight the fire(s)
  • Building sprinklers should be examined and tested every 5 years 
  • There should always be a fire extinguisher in reach inside of a commercial building and they must be checked annually to ensure they are in working order
  •  If an office building is on fire, exit the building immediately and do not try to fight the fire yourself 
  • If there is a lot of smoke inside the building, cover your mouth and nose and do your best to not inhale any of it

In the unfortunate event that a commercial building does catch fire, rest assured that SERVPRO of Golden / Wheat Ridge / Evergreen is prepared to help clean up any fire damage the building/area has sustained.

Weekend Disaster on a Commercial Level



"Bye! Have a nice weekend" you shout to your co-workers as you leave work on a Friday afternoon.  You turn off the lights and lock the door behind you.  You won't be returning until Monday the next week.  Seems normal, but the weekend has huge temperature swings.  Saturday night it freezes until Sunday comes to thaw the ice.  The temperature swings caused a pipe to burst in the office plumbing and when you open the door and turn on the lights Monday morning, you are greeted with a pool of water at your feet.  The carpet is soaked through and through and all of your files, computers, and printers have been hit by the flood.  Now what do you do?

Can You Smell That?

5/19/2020 (Permalink)

Water flowing from a kitchen sink When there is a water leak, SERVPRO of Golden/ Wheat Ridge/ Evergreen has your back. We fix water and mold damage all in one package!

Got Mold?

            What is that smell?  Gosh, it smells like wet and sitting food.  Where is it coming from? Under the sink? Yes.  Oh yes.  Oh shoot, there is a leak from the sink pipe! You fix the leak no problem, but now there is black mold growing underneath.  This won't be as easy as replacing the P-trap.  Cleaning mold requires special technique, cleaning products, and care.

            Any home or business can quickly become infested with mold when water is introduced to the environment.  Things such as roof leaks, basement floods, plumbing leaks (see above description), and other things of this nature can spread mold in as little as 48-72 hours! It is so important to mitigate any water in your home or business at first sight so harmful molds cannot grow and thrive. 

            In this blog, we will discuss what mold is, how it can grow in your home, how to prevent mold from growing, what we can do to help in a mold situation, and more.

What is Mold?

            Mold is a general term for fungi that comes in many forms.  There are countless forms of mold, possibly tens of thousands of differing strains, but no one knows for sure the exact count.  It can grow indoors or outdoors and be black, brown, yellow, pink, or green in color. Often it is fuzzy and can smell quite awful.  Moisture is required for mold to grow actively, and when it does, it damages whatever it may be growing on.  That could mean your carpets, floors, walls, furniture, shower, or other materials.  These items with actively growing mold are being structurally damaged by the growth. 

Common Areas for Mold Growth in the Home

            First off, a small amount of mold in your everyday life is inescapable.  Tiny microscopic mold spores are present everywhere indoor and outdoor.  You are probably breathing in those tiny itty-bitty spores right now.  Getting rid of all of these spores is impossible.  They are a part of our nature.  So, if a company ever claims to remove all mold from the home, that is a fallacy! A good restoration company knows they just need to remediate the big and harmful molds. 

            So, how do you know if you have mold in your home? You will be able to see it! Often, you can smell it as mentioned before. However, it may be hiding, so checking the common areas and the not so common areas for mold will help ensure you are spotting it all. 

            The Shower or Tub: continual use of these areas makes them damp majority of the time.  The obvious places to look for mold would be the corners of the showers, ceilings, and walls.  The not so obvious places to look would be on shampoo bottles, washcloths, loofahs, the shower curtain, and the shower head.

            Sink and Toilet: the wet nature of these areas makes them prone to mold.  Surface areas are the obvious places to check for mold.  The not so obvious are the toothbrush caddies, tank of the toilet, all of the pipes, and behind or underneath the sink.

            The kitchen: water, food, grease, etc. all live in the kitchen which means mold can too.  Check in, on, and under the kitchen sink, the refrigerator and pantry, microwave and stove.  The not so obvious would be the bottom of your trashcans, wooden cutting boards, window sills, and anywhere food may fall through a crack.

            The Bedroom: ceilings, walls, and window sills, may be the more obvious areas for this room.  The not so obvious would be heating and cooling systems and on your mattress!

            Other Places: chimneys and fireplaces, indoor plants, couches, curtains, upholstery, and anywhere where moisture may have been.

How to Prevent Mold Growth

             Keep humidity to a minimum.  It is recommended to keep them no greater than 50% at all times. However, changes in moisture levels and temperatures change throughout the day, so the levels will need to be checked and managed throughout. 

            Ventilate! Makes sure your home and each room has enough ventilation so moisture doesn’t stay.  Use exhaust fans and be sure that your dryer is vented outside of your home.

            Fix leaks.  Look for leaking on your roof, walls, or plumbing systems. Without water, mold cannot grow.

            Clean up and dry out home using your local SERVPRO franchise after water damage (within 24-48 hours).

            Add mold inhibitors to paints before painting.

            Remove or replace any carpets or upholstery that have been soaked and cannot be dried in time.  Also consider not using carpets in areas with a lot of moisture such as bathrooms. 

What to do in the Event of Mold

  • Stay out of the affected area.
  • Turn off HVAC and fans.
  • Call SERVPRO of Golden/ What Ridge/ Evergreen.

What not to do in the Event of Mold

  • Do not touch or disturb the mold.
  • Do not blow air on any surface that contains mold.
  • Do not dry the area yourself.
  • Do not bleach or disinfect the mold.

Our Remediation Service

            Our team at SERVPRO of Golden/ Wheat Ridge/ Evergreen has the skills, training, experience, and specialized equipment needed for mold mitigation and remediation. Our techniques are approved by the IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification).        

                        Direct Spraying:

                                    We use hand pumps or power sprayers to apply specialized chemicals and disinfectants to the affected areas in your Evergreen, Wheat Ridge, Golden, or surrounding homes. This method will wet the area, so we are sure to only use this method on surfaces that cannot be discolored.

                        Wet Fogging:

                                    ULV (ultra low volume) foggers are used to disperse disinfectants and deodorizers to the area.  These foggers create tiny particles that can penetrate into just about anything.  However, this creates additional moisture, so the technicians at your home, office, or she-shed, will remove all furniture and other items that could be damaged by this method. If there are some items that cannot be removed, drapes will be placed over them for protection.

                        Dry Fogging:

                                    This technique, also called thermal fogging, is used when there is mold, but little to no water damage.  This uses solvent based cleaners and deodorants that are heated and pushed through a vaporizer. This process changes the particles into so they are small enough to penetrate almost any surface.  Since there is no moisture added, this is the preferred method we use whenever it is possible. 

                        Ventilation and Air Scrubbing:

                                    As the different methods of cleaning are underway, the rooms and other affected areas must be ventilated.  Our team has high velocity exhaust fans, called box fans, that blow out mold particles.  This is done so that the mold particles that release in the cleaning process are captured and removed. This reduces the amount of time the area needs to be vacant and allows occupants into their homes quicker.

                                    Not only do the walls, ceilings, personal items, or whatever was affected need to be cleaned, but the air does too!  HEPA (high-efficiency particle air) filters are used to aid in the removal of mold spores and its odor from the air.  They work extremely well in the removal of the dirty air and filtering back clean air to the room. 

Our Process in 7 easy steps

            Each mold situation is unique and will require its own specific steps in the remediation process. However, we 7 simple steps for a typical mold damage job.  Here it is below so you may better understand what will take place and when.

Commercial Water Loss

12/31/2019 (Permalink)

Commercial Flood Loss Commercial Flood can strike your building at any time. Be informed and protected.

Water Loss in a Commercial Building

“Just another day at the office”; Its an expression that is widely used for the mundane work day.  We often get up, do our morning routine and expect a fairly routine day at work.  We are creatures of habit after all. But, what happens when we get to our commercial building and find it completely flooded with water?!  It becomes not just another day at the office, it becomes a stressful, unproductive, revenue-sucking day. 

For most businesses, the commercial building is only populated from 9-5.  That means all of the little things are only being monitored for about 8 hours out of the 24 we are given in a day.  The commercial building is at risk during those remaining 16 hours and it can result in a burst pipe, backflow, or basement flood.  While it may cause some initial headache and heart race, our team at SERVPRO of Golden/ Wheat Ridge/ Evergreen is here to make it “like it never even happened”.  We are a fast-acting 24-hour response team that specializes in commercial water loss.  No job is too big for us to handle. 

In the following blog, we talk on how water losses happen in a commercial building, the dangers of the water loss, how to prevent a commercial flood, and how SERVPRO is here to help. 

Water Gets In

            Water has a sneaking way of finding its way into many Golden, Wheat Ridge, Evergreen, and other Colorado business and structures.  It can seep in through cracks and holes in basement walls, framing, floorboards, trim, and up through the foundation.  These cracks and holes become larger issues when there is improper drainage around your basement, especially for buildings in the Foothill areas where there is sloping topography.  If you find your office or commercial building at the bottom of a hill, or at any position where water may run down, you are at higher risk for a basement flood.

Hazards 

            There are many dangers to flood waters in a commercial setting.  Even though the water pooling in your basement or crawl space may look clean and clear, it is likely to contain many harmful toxins to human health.  When water comes in from the ground, it pulls anything in its path along with it.  The contaminants in the water create risk to human health as well as harm to the commercial space. The following is a list of these dangers.

  • Yikes
    • Ground water contains metals such as manganese and iron from the soil in high concentrations. Pesticides and fertilizers used in yards and gardens can soak into the water. Chemical spills or leaking fuel tanks may also find its way in.  Animal feces and many other natural and human-induced chemicals can be found in ground water.
  • Mold
    • Mold can start to grow and spread within 48-72 hours after water enters the building. These molds can produce allergens and irritants that are harmful to the health of you and your family.  Any source of the water must be fully addressed before the mold can be remediated because it is likely to come back if any moisture remains. 
  • Water is Heavy
    • When water soaks furniture, blankets, fabrics, or other common office items, it adds its weight to that item. Therefore, picking up or moving any item that is wet poses a risk to the person moving it.  It may not look as heavy as it truly is, and the right force may not be applied resulting in bodily injury. 
  • Electrical Hazard
    • Water that has come into contact with electrical outlets, cords, or appliances may become charged. It is important that you do not touch or walk through this water in order to avoid electrocution.   The electricity needs to be turned off first.
  • Slip and Fall
    • Water can also cause surfaces to become slippery. It is important to take every precaution into consideration before entering a room that is potentially slippery in order to avoid bodily injuries. 

It is important to handle everything timely and professionally in order to eliminate the risk of disease, the start of mold, or further damage to the building and its belongings.

Prevention

            There are several ways in which you can help to protect your commercial building from a flash flood and sneaky water.

  • Assessing risk
    • Know the flood level and potential for your space. Your local insurance agent should have this information for you.
  • Inspect for foundational cracks
    • Visually look at the exterior of your home for any cracks. Many can be filled in and fixed with epoxy, but if leaking continues, it may be a larger foundational issue that would require professional assistance.  
  • Keep gutters and downspouts clean
    • Be sure to position downspouts away from your home or away from any area where pooling can occur. They should be directing water at least 10 feet away from your building.  Also, keep gutters free of debris such as fallen leaves and sticks to unsure good flow.
  • Landscape for flood prevention
    • If there is slope in the property that is causing water to come into your space, you will want to landscape to combat this. This is not always the easiest task as it requires digging trenches, regrading, placing flood barriers, or even installing a French drain.  
  • Anchor and elevate equipment such as fuel tanks, air-conditioners, and generators
    • Supply lines can tear free in the event of a basement flood and this type of equipment can leak oil into your home. Even a tank that is buried can be pushed by flood waters and effect the safety of your home.
  • Install an interior and exterior backflow valve for your sewer system
    • When a municipal city drainage system or sewer overflows, it can send contaminated water into your home. A normally functioning system allows waste water to flow from your home to the city sewer.  In the case of a backflow, the opposite occurs.  Installing the valves can prevent a backflow when the systems become overloaded.

Do's and Dont's

Even if you follow all of the preventative tips, you still may fall victim to a large storm.  Your backflow valves may still fail, you may miss some foundational cracks, the septic system may back up, and a host of other possibilities, especially with large spaces such as commercial buildings.  If you find yourself ankle deep in basement water, here are a few things to do before SERVPRO arrives.  Acting quickly before professional help can arrive will lessen the damage to your office, shop, or commercial building.

Do’s:

  • Remove as much water by mopping and soaking up.
  • Wipe down wooden furniture.
  • Remove cushions, pillows, and upholstery.
  • Separate furniture legs from the wet floors by placing blocks underneath them.
  • Take out colored rugs
  • Gather all loose items.

            Additionally, there are a few things to take careful note not to do in the event of a commercial flood.  Avoiding these key things will ensure your safety and lessen the damage to your property.

Don’ts:

  • Don’t leave books, magazines, or colored papers, or colored office supplies on wet carpet, floors, or furniture.
  • Do not use electrical items such as televisions, printers, or computers.
  • Do not vacuum up any water.
  • Do not remove heavy items as water often makes them heavier.
  • If the ceiling is wet, keep ceiling fixtures off and remain out of the room if it is sagging.

            While every water damage situation is unique, the general process stays the same.  SERVPRO follows 6 basic steps when handling your water damage.  Below are the 6 steps taken from call to complete restoration.

  1. Emergency Contact
