SERVPRO’s Clifton Mold Remediation Procedures

8/15/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation SERVPRO’s Clifton Mold Remediation Procedures Mold spores are continuously present in the interior of any home, settled on surfaces or airborne.

Mold Remediation Procedures

Mold can become a problem just about anywhere, and homes in Clifton are no exception. Mold spores are continuously present in the interior of any home, settled on surfaces or airborne. They are too tiny to see without magnification assistance and cause few if any problems in their spore state. If they absorb moisture, mold colony growth and damage begin. When you reach this point, our remediation services can help.

Homeowners in Clinton hear a lot about mold damage in the media. Some so-called mold removal companies use scare tactics, linking mold growth to health problems and promising to eliminate mold in a home. We take mold damage very seriously but encourage anyone who is worried about mold damage and their health to discuss things with their doctor or other healthcare professional. Some individuals who are allergic or sensitive to mold spores or by-products report an increase in irritation when mold is a problem. Our mold remediation technicians make no promises about eliminating health effects, but we do know effective strategies to remove current colonies and reduce the possibility of recurrence.

Our mold remediation experts use the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocols when abating mold damage. We locate and contain the mold, employing physical barriers like heavy plastic sheeting to prevent mold debris from drifting into unaffected areas. Often we take one more step and use negative pressure air scrubbers, a combination of exhaust ducting and suction that creates a vacuum-like effect that keeps moldy materials inside the containment area, clearing air with HEPA filters before sending it outside.

Our technicians then remove the mold by mechanical means, scraping and wiping the colonies off surfaces to which they attached. A useful abrasive technique called soda blasting can even remove mold from porous materials. SERVPRO remediators bag the moldy residues and dispose of them following local codes concerning hazardous waste.

EPA-registered antimicrobials then treat the affected and nearby surfaces to inhibit regrowth. SERVPRO handles mold remediation projects with integrity, doing our best to eliminate current damage and counseling the homeowner to be vigilant about solving the moisture problems that fuel mold growth and damage. We cannot rid a home of the spores, but bring the levels down to normal. Combining this result with moisture management limits the chance that mold can take hold again.

SERVPRO of Grand Junction offers trustworthy mold remediation services without the hype of terrifying our customers about health effects or promising impossible to obtain results Contact us at (970) 241-8181 to discuss your mold infestation and our efforts to solve it today.

What to Expect from the Grand Junction SERVPRO Fire Damage Professionals

Fire Damage What to Expect from the Grand Junction SERVPRO Fire Damage Professionals Who Should I Call After Fire Damages My Home in Grand Junction? SERVPRO

After a House Fire SERVPRO Strives to Make You Feel "Like it never even happened."

When fire blazes through your Grand Junction home the shock and turmoil you feel are overpowering. The situation becomes even more chaotic when you realize the cleanup is not a task you can complete without assistance. Finding the best fit from among competing restoration companies is confusing and frustrating. Your call to us results in a fair assessment to secure the outcome for your home that you expect and your peace of mind.

Fire damage in your Grand Junction home might seem restricted to the area where the flames were most intense. Our highly-qualified crews respond to each fire scenario with an open mind, realizing that the residues from a household fire can spread throughout every space of the building. Problems that crop up days, weeks, or months after restoration is considered finished by less skilled companies are usually predictable and avoidable by our experienced crew chiefs.
 
SERVPRO works with your insurance company every step of the way, ensuring that our work is thorough and covers all aspects of the circumstances caused by the way fire affected your home. The first and most crucial task is a comprehensive inspection of your home, followed by the creation of a detailed work plan that covers everything we need to do to make it “Like it never even happened.”
 
Typically the next focus is water and chemical extinguisher removal as the firefighters employ both to put out the fire. SERVPRO eliminates water first because of safety considerations. Slip and fall and electrical shorts and shock are common and dangerous risks. Water damage is also the equal of that done by fire and can destroy building materials and lead to secondary damage like microbial growth.
 
The SERVPRO crew then matches the characteristics of the smoke and soot residues found at your site to the most efficient and appropriate cleaning products and tools. Damage found in different spaces and to a variety of surfaces and materials can be different as we move through each area. Some soot vacuums or brushes away. Other soot is thick and sticky, requiring wetting agents and surfactants to loosen the coating before wiping. Tough and adhesive residues, such as those found after a kitchen fire, can need abrasive action and solvents to remove.
 
You can rely on SERVPRO of Grand Junction with confidence when you need assistance recovering from a home fire. Call us at (970) 241-8181 day or night, immediately after the fire authorities release your home back to you.

When the Carpets of Your Grand Junction Home Suffer Water Damages

Water Damage When the Carpets of Your Grand Junction Home Suffer Water Damages SERVPRO Technicians, Not Robots, Restore Your Water Damaged Property in Grand Junction

SERVPRO Provides Water Removal and Carpet Cleaning for Our Customers

Many Grand Junction homeowners take much time improving the look of the inside of their homes. With various decor options and additions, none add the kind of homey feel that carpeting does. Throughout many higher traffic areas, your home's carpet offers a plush feel under your feet. When water incidents occur in your home, these same carpeted areas absorb much of the damage and require specific processes to dry out.
 
You might know that the carpets in your home are magnets for dirt and debris, collecting it at the base of the fibers well out of your normal field of vision. Carpets have this same supposed magnetism for water damages in Grand Junction homes. Restoring the damage to this area of your home takes skilled professional restoration work, much like the services that our SERVPRO technicians provide.
 
Even with smaller scale water incidents, pulling the water from the base of your carpeting can be a challenging process. Often our SERVPRO professionals may opt to use weighted extractors to press into the fibers and padding beneath to force the water to the surface to get removed with vacuums and drying efforts. We strive to prevent delamination to the carpet nap and backing. The size of the machine requires space to use, which requires our technicians to move the contents of this affected area to a lower-traffic area of your home. We can also use smaller, portable wet vacs with wands for water extraction.
 
Along with drying efforts for your house in this situation, our experienced professionals often have to clean the carpets as well. This fact is especially true when the water damage carries dirt, debris or some contaminant along with it. There are many levels to this cleaning service, which can get determined on site by the competent technicians working on the restoration. We use specially formulated cleaning products from our broad arsenal of cleansers.
 
Drying the affected area and materials requires specialized equipment such as high-powered air movers and large dehumidifiers, both refrigerant LGR's and desiccant models to gradually eliminate the moisture in your home before it can cause secondary water damage like mold growth.
 
Unwanted water in your home does not have to be a lingering and threatening presence. You can trust that our SERVPRO of Grand Junction restoration specialists can remove the water from the affected areas and completely dry out the damage quickly. Our rapid response team is standing by 24/7 at (970) 241-8181.

Community SAFE HALLOWEEN FUN 2017 trick or treat street

SERVPRO of Grand Junction, Garfield & Pitkin counties always participates in trick or treat street in Fruita Colorado.  It’s a Small little safe town in the western slope.  Seeing all the kids and enjoying them having a great safe time on Halloween is a  joy to SERVPRO team.  We are honored to be a part of the community.

  • Safety for Pedestrians

    According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Halloween night can be a dangerous night for pedestrians. Consider following these tips from Safe Kids Worldwide before your kids head out for some candy:

    • Make sure your child takes along a working flashlight or an abundant number of glow sticks to help ensure they’re visible to others.
  • Don’t let your kids leave home without a fully charged cellphone so they can call for help in the event of an emergency. You may also want to remind your children to keep their heads up and put their phones and other devices down, especially when crossing the street.
  • Tell your kids to walk only on sidewalks and, if there is not a sidewalk available, to walk against the flow of traffic and as far away from the road as possible.
  • Be sure that any costume your child wears on Halloween night doesn’t impede their vision or pose a tripping hazard.
  • Don’t send your kids under the age of 12 out trick-or-treating by themselves. If they resist because they don’t want to be seen with mom or dad, wear a costume. It’s Halloween. You can get away with it.
  • Set a curfew for your older children, and decide on a predetermined route so you’ll know their approximate whereabouts
