2/15/2022 (Permalink)

Snow is being cleared from a sidewalk. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Jefferson County.

SERVPRO® of Golden/Wheat Ridge/Evergreen responds to storm damage emergencies throughout the year in Evergreen. The Insurance Institute of Business and Home Safety offers this information on what a business can do after a winter storm event:

Activate your business continuity plan

  • Ensure everyone is safe
    • Make sure guests, clients, and employees are safe 
    • Be prepared to evacuate if structural damage from snow and ice makes a building unsafe
    • Stay away from downed powerlines

Snow removal 

  • Safety first! 
  • Keep the parking lot and sidewalks surrounding the building free of snow and ice. Shovel after each snowfall. Keep ice melt/salt on the ground to prevent slips and falls.  
  • Place non-slip mats in front of entryways to prevent slipping as employees and customers enter/exit your business property
  • 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  
  • Watch for signs of snow load damage, such as creaking sounds, a sagging roof, cracks in the ceiling or walls, water stains, and doors or windows that no longer open and close correctly
  • In case of a power outage, use your generator
