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

General Solor Eclipse SERVPRO of Grand Junction watching the total eclipse safely

This celestial event in August of 2017 was a solar eclipse in which the moon passes between the sun and earth and blocks all or part of the sun for up to about three hours, from beginning to end, as viewed from a given location.  SERVPRO of Grand Junction Stopped our day for a few hours to enjoy this special life time event. The last time the contiguous U.S. saw a total eclipse was in 1979

You never want to look directly at the sun without appropriate protection.  This could severely hurt your eyes. However, there are many ways to safely view an eclipse. SERVPRO ordered glasses and invited our team and guests to watch this special event.  This is an event to never forget.

Cleaning CRAWLSPACE AWARENESS Crew Chief Jason Allred handling business

When warmth and humidity enters the crawl space, and cold winter night air becomes part of the crawl space environment, a vented dirt crawl space can become more trouble than its worth!  To address these problems, call SERVPRO Grand Junction.  We establish ourselves as the leading authority on crawl space moisture problems.


SERVPRO Grand Junction can come and clean and dry out your crawl space, If you have leaking pipes, or a leak we can help refer you to local companies that we support. We look forward to helping you fix your moldy and wet crawlspace.   


Approaches to crawlspace remediation are depend on environmental factors such as the presence of moisture, mold, insects, and by esoteric factors such as homeowners’ health, commitment environmental health and capacity.  Two common solutions are:


1: BASIC CLEANUP


The basic minimum crawlspace cleanup should include removal of debris and all materials that are conductive to mold growth, especially if there is already mold or fungi on it.  All crawlspaces should have a vapor barrier at the very least.  Sealing all wood with an anti-microbial coating is optional except in cases of moderate to heavy mold growth.


2: COMPLETE (encapsulation)


In addition to the basic cleanup, all wood materials can be sealed with an anti-microbial coating.  The foundation vents are closed off.  Heavy duty vapor barrier or liner is installed from the top of the concrete stem walls and over the entire ground surface will all the seams sealed.

Commercial SERVPRO of Grand Junction can dry out any Contruction site Construction site in Grand Junction Colorado

On January 8th 2017 Grand Junction was hit with a severe storm.  SERVPRO of Grand Junction was quick to responded to a big commercial construction site in our valley. This construction site was a huge unfinished building in progress.  The first 3 floors were insulated and sheet rocked.  The last floor was just structure.  SERVPRO arrived at the site and placed all necessary equipment to dry out the structure and prevent any mold.  It took us two days to completely save this site so the company could continue their construction without out any delay.  SERVPRO of Grand Junction saved the construction company thousands of dollars and they were very happy with the results.  If you have construction in process and you suffer flooding before it is complete, no need to start over call SERVPRO of Grand Junction.  We are quick to respond and strive to make it “Like it never even happened”.

Fire Damage Installing Smoke Detectors 2016 SERVPRO teamed up with American Red Cross

SERVPRO of Grand Junction took the day to volunteer with America Red Cross. We broke up in groups and went door to door to test and install smoke detectors in local Grand Junction homes on November 22, 2016. What a great time and so many families opened their homes to welcome us. We gave them valuable information on how to plan if there was a fire in their home how to get out safely. We provided them with a checklist for things to help them prevent fires in their homes. It was amazing how so many fire alarms were not working at all, or were lacking batteries. With the help of Red Cross of Grand Junction and SERVPRO of Grand Junction we installed a lot of smoke detectors in the area, with 10-year life long battery’s. It is important to use that lives will be saved if there is a fire in your home.

Call SERVPRO of Grand Junction if you need your home restored after a fire. We will give it our heart to make it “Like it Never Even Happened”!!
