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”!!

The ultrasound can be used with just water, but use of a solvent appropriate for the item to be cleaned and the type of soiling present enhances the effect.

Community SERVPRO OF GRAND JUNCTION #PYCCO SERVPRO of Grand Junction rewards Jean Border with October 2016 Peoople you can count on

Jean Border is SERVPRO of Grand Junctions People you can count on for October 2016.  Jean Border of Grand Junction says “It is giving and you might be the only one who those people see in the day”. Dedicating hours through volunteering at Hospice, Border says her work became her passion, leading her to many great friendships.

"It was like a perfect match, and you don't always have that," she says. She had a lot of pictures and a lot of experiences with people, it has been just a great bond!

After the passing of a dear friend, Border is working to honor her wish by creating a family history scrapbooks for 13 relatives.  This is one of the things she was asked of when she was still conscious, to please get her book finished.   "I guess I just feel that it's a treasure and it is family history, a father. If you read the letters, you can tell that he loved his family and that he was very proud of them all."

Jeans daughter says not a moment goes by that she isn't working to help someone else. Her whole life has been just a message of servant-hood and giving to others.  She has opened her heart up to them and they have reciprocated. She has built a lot of good friendships and bonds with these people. Border believes that it has just been her duty in life, as it takes volunteers to make the world go around.

After the loss of two grandchildren, Jean Border understands pain and now it's her turn to help guide others through it.

"You become a part of their life, whether you really are a part or not," she says. " It just makes them smile or you can cheer them up."

 

That's why News channel 5, SERVPRO of Grand Junction, and Housing Resources has selected Jean Border for this month's People You Can Count On.

September 2016 # PYCCO

Community September 2016  # PYCCO SERVPRO of Grand Junction with Stacy Antonucci, This months People You Can Count On!

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.

When you go to grab the weights, you're not just working out your muscles, you're also working out your mind; giving yourself a feeling unlike any other.  For Stacy Antonucci she wanted everyone to know what that feeling is like.  "Your endorphins get let loose once you break a sweat," says Antonucci. "They come in not in the greatest of moods, not happy, and when they leave they are smiling."  Stacy's program 'Steppin' It Up' does exactly that, gives those with special needs the feeling of physical strength and mental strength.  "It's really amazing to watch them when they have been working for weeks on end to hit a certain goal, and then when they actually hit it, it's amazing," says Antonucci. "Every time a session ends I feel stronger watching them do what they do."  It started, just putting in those reps with just one client at the gym, but soon turned into 30 or 40 people. She wants everyone to know that no matter your physical or mental disability, you too can achieve any goal.  "We see somebody with, whether it's a physical or a mental disability, and we see them doing the things that we're doing and we take that for granted, that we can just do it without a thought," says Antonucci. "Just the pride that they have in themselves, the fact that they can do something that everybody else can do, it's huge for everybody."

Those in the program prove it every day. "A lot of improvement in my muscles," says Eric Blevens, a Steppin' It Up client. "Because when I joined Stacy's group, my muscles weren't quite that strong."

 "It doesn't matter what your fitness level is, she'll get you in shape and it's a great work out," says Chelsy Cronk, a Steppin' It Up client.

 Parents are also taking notice of how much this is helping their children.

 "Being healthy is a very important part of being a happy person," says Shaun Howe, a parent of one of Stacy's client. "Stacy makes it's so much fun that it's something

Hannah looks forward to, she does it twice a week and she never wants to miss. She just gets Hannah enthusiastic to go out and try things."

 So beyond, the clinks and the clangs of the machines, Stacy is always looking and listening for a smile or a laugh from those that she says, keep her going every day.

 "You have a bad day and you look at the people that are in this program and your bad day is nothing compare to their bad day," says Antonucci. "I just love it. I love them, and I have learned so much from them, they are amazing people. They're loving, kind, outgoing, and they want to do the things that everybody else does."

That's why SERVPRO of Grand Junction, News channel 5 and Housing Resources has selected Stacy Antonucci for this month’s People You Can Count On.
