A Quick Response Can Save Your Colorado Springs Business

4/2/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial A Quick Response Can Save Your Colorado Springs Business Call on SERVPRO to get your doors open sooner and prevent further damage to your business.

Call SERVPRO as Soon as Possible after a Water Emergency

Of all of the pit stops that people can make as they pass through Colorado Springs, you strive to offer the kind of atmosphere and feel that makes motorists and locals choose your gas station above the other options they might have. When a water emergency strikes out of nowhere, it can have some effects on the business itself, so it is best to understand the importance of choosing professional restoration to get you back in the game more expediently.

As critical as automotive traffic and foot traffic is to your gas station, you should better understand the importance of solving any disasters that occur and fully restoring the water damage caused to your Colorado Springs business. The first consideration that you have to make is sectioning off areas of your shop area to keep people away from the water damage, or having to close your doors entirely while the restoration process is underway.

Attempting to clean substantial water emergencies up on your own, instead of choosing professional restoration like SERVPRO provides, can often lead to you waiting much longer to successfully re-open your businesses to travelers and locals that wish to use it. The primary drawback to waiting longer for your gas station to reopen is obviously the loss of profits, but it also allows for a loss of reputation and loyal customers. The longer that your establishment is not available to formerly loyal patrons, the more likely they are to start going to another similar business permanently.

Another consideration that you should make would be the employees that rely on their paychecks to support themselves or their families. The longer that you are not able to serve the public, the longer they are going without a regular paycheck.

Finally, the longer that you wait to contact SERVPRO, the more likely further damage can result. This damage could show itself in the weakening of structural components, forcing remodeling or reconstruction or could also appear as mold damage on top of the other issues you face.

You should not wait to contact SERVPRO of Northern Colorado Springs / Tri-Lakes if your business is threatened by a water emergency. The quicker that our experienced team can get to work, the faster your business can begin making money again. Give us a call today at (719) 434-4626.

Fire Damage Restoration in Colorado Springs

3/28/2018 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Fire Damage Restoration in Colorado Springs Fire damage can leave behind foul odors that require professional restoration services.

Rely on SERVPRO to Rid Your Home of Foul Odors after Fire Damage

After a fire ignites inside your Colorado Springs townhome, there are different types of damage that possibly take place. Near the source of the fire, heat and flames often burn and char building materials and contents. In other parts of the building, smoke damage likely occurs.

Items that get burnt severely, usually get replaced or possibly resurfaced. SERVPRO's fire damage technicians in Colorado Springs use various cleaning methods to get rid of soot left behind by smoke. After all of the soot and burnt materials get cleaned and removed sometimes foul odors still exist inside the structure.

If the cleaning process does not do the job of odor elimination, then we take steps to deodorize the area. When deodorizing a structure, various chemicals, and application methods get used. Most chemicals deodorize areas by either causing a reaction and neutralizing the smell particles or by masking foul odors with more pleasant ones.

Sometimes our SERVPRO experts determine that the building's HVAC system is what causes foul odors to exist. In this case, HVAC duct cleaning systems get used. The system includes a vacuum system and filter that pulls all odor-causing particles into the HEPA filter. The system also comes with brushes and tools used to agitate the inside surfaces of the vents.

In other scenarios, air scrubbers get used to pull any foul odor particles out of the air. The system creates negative air pressure that sucks particles into a HEPA filter. The filter consists of activated carbon and potassium permanganate that attract odor particles to the filter through absorption.

If we determine that the source of foul odors is a piece of furniture or carpet inside your home, then we treat the fabric or upholstery with deodorant chemicals. Sometimes chemicals get sprayed onto the porous materials, other times we inject deodorants into the fabric. The injection method often gets used in small sections of furniture or when the carpet or pad cannot get pulled up to access the backing.

Deodorization is a vital part of completing any smoke restoration project. To get professional help with smoke and odor related problems call SERVPRO of Northern Colorado Springs / Tri-Lakes at (719) 434-4626 any time of the day, every day of the week.

Attic Mold is More Common to Colorado Springs Homes Than You Might Think

3/25/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Attic Mold is More Common to Colorado Springs Homes Than You Might Think If you see or smell mold in your home, contact SERVPRO to investigate the source and to remediate the damage. Mold could be hiding in your attic.

SERVPRO Technicians Know That Mold can Reside in Many Parts of Your Home Including the Attic

Even with the seasons changing to what could arguably more favorable weather in the spring and summer months, your Colorado Springs home might still feel the effects of a long winter in places like your attic. With heavier snowfalls on aging roofs, the irregular wear can leave spots that are improperly insulated and weakened, allowing moisture to penetrate more easily. This stream of moisture into one of the warmest places in your house (regardless of the season) meets the requirements for mold growth.  
 
Since most homeowners do not regularly check their attic for mold damage in Colorado Springs, this problem could potentially persist for quite some time before it comes to someone’s attention. While the advisable thing would be to make it a point to check on the condition of your attic on a regular basis, this is often easier said than done. If mold has already started to grow and thrive in this region of your home, professional remediation services are what you require.  
 
Mold is well known to potentially cause health effects to those that encounter it, which makes it something that you should handle quickly. Our SERVPRO remediation specialists get uniquely trained in the latest restoration and removal techniques for all varieties of mold, as well as using the proper protective equipment and methods of preventing the spread of active spores to new areas of your home.  
 
When our experienced team of IICRC-certified technicians arrives at your home, our priority is sectioning off this area of your home to prevent the spread of spores to new regions. With so many air circulation equipment getting run through or centered in the attic area, this equipment must get turned off through the entire remediation process. Negative air chambers and air scrubbers get used to contain active spores while the affected surfaces are deeply cleaned to remove the colonies.  
 
While this is just a small piece of the greater remediation project, it goes to show that when you choose SERVPRO of Northern Colorado Springs / Tri-Lakes, you are making the right choice. Our specialists can handle any mold damage situation you might have, and get your home back to the way it used to be. Give us a call today at (719) 434-4626.

The Reality of Water Damage In Your Colorado Springs Business

Commercial The Reality of Water Damage In Your Colorado Springs Business Be Prepared with SERVPRO's ERP Plan for Colorado Springs Commercial Water Damage Help

SERVPRO Can Cleanup and Restore Plus Offer Our ERP Program to Better Protect and Preserve Your Business

For those with a Colorado Springs business, you can attest that you typically pour everything that you have into the keeping it afloat and moving towards grander successes. Something as fundamental as a water emergency has the stopping power that could affect profits for this company, but that is hardly the full extent of the damage that a disaster inside of your storefront or facility could do.

So, how do you keep your Colorado Springs business from falling victim to water damage that threatens your bottom line and affects so many other areas of your achievements? While there might be levels of preventative maintenance that could occur to help limit the stress placed on aging pipes of your plumbing and eroding fixtures, there are times that water damage happens in very unexpected and unpredictable ways. This fact makes planning for (or completely preventing) these occurrences impossible. A SERVPRO sales rep can come by for a free consultation regarding our mobile app the ERP Emergency READY Profile Plan for businesses just like yours. We have found this program to prevent and also mitigate the unwanted effects of damaging events to your workplace.
 
Our SERVPRO team of restoration specialists can appreciate the gravity of profit loss and subsequent negative consequences of having your doors closed to customers and clientele. While to say you are not conducting "business as usual" might be an understatement, you have a list of other concerns that follow suit with the closure of your storefront or business. The first of these would be a negative response from the customer base that you serve day-in and day-out. With the immediate means of spreading your opinions over the internet these days, the longer a business has to stay closed for restoration and cleaning, the more likely internet negativity attaches itself to the situation.
 
Our SERVPRO technicians work as quickly as possible to restore the water damage to your business because it affects not only you but your entire staff as well. The more time that your doors have to remain closed to customers are days where your employees are not accruing worked hours and losing money they use to support themselves and their families.
 
You cannot ever be truly ready for a water emergency that threatens your business, but you can trust that SERVPRO of Northern Colorado Springs / Tri-Lakes can help you to get it all back on track. Our emergency response team can be reached 24/7 by calling (719) 434-4626.

Why is Fast Water Removal Crucial in Colorado Springs?

3/2/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Why is Fast Water Removal Crucial in Colorado Springs? Standing water in your home needs to be removed as soon as possible, call SERVPRO 24/7 for expert water removal services.

SERVPRO Acts Fast to Remove Water in Your Home and Reduce the Damage Done

When a water disaster strikes your Colorado Springs property, it is essential to arrange for its speedy removal. Regardless of how it entered your home, evacuating standing water and then drying out residual moisture must occur within hours if following best restoration industry practices. We offer 24/7 response to water emergencies, with fully-equipped vehicles and experienced technicians on their way as soon as practical.

Even relatively clean water can destroy home’s structural components and put your belongings at risk of ruin. Colorado Springs residents rely on our experience with water removal to halt the destruction. State of the art equipment matched with the IICRC training mastered by our work crews results in positive outcomes for our customers’ properties. Thorough removal of visible water and strategies to find and eliminate hidden pockets of moisture are core services around which our business focuses.

Upon arrival, our SERVPRO crew chiefs assess your situation, including evaluating the characteristics of the water invading your home. Determining whether the water is contaminated is an initial step, as our workers use different procedures and protective measures if the water contains hazardous substances. Gray water, such as flooding from appliances or aquariums, signals the need for extra care and sanitation. Black water, such as sewer backups and widespread neighborhood flooding from overflowing streams or heavy rains, can require the donning of personal protective equipment for our team and the following of federal, state, and local protocols for containing and disposing of the water removed.

Once we identify the appropriate safeguards, SERVPRO crews begin pumping out and otherwise extracting the water. Our service vehicles feature truck-mounted pumps and vacuums that get the job done even if your power has been interrupted. Throughout the project, we measure air and building materials for moisture content to set and monitor drying goals. Scanning devices allow us to locate water pooled behind walls or in recesses. We may drill through mortar joints or pull out sections of wallboard or paneling to access and remove this hidden water.

As the water exits via our professional-grade removal equipment, attention shifts to setting up air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers to dry out the walls, ceilings, and flooring affected. SERVPRO crews employ a wide range of water removal and drying efforts proven effective in our experience and based on the most up to date industry standards. Failure to remove all the moisture risks ongoing damage, including disintegration of many common building materials and mold damage if wetness continues more than 24 to 48 hours.

When your home experiences water intrusion, getting the team from SERVPRO of Northern Colorado Springs / Tri-Lakes on duty fast ensures a successful restoration. Call (719) 434-4626 all hours of the day or night to schedule an inspection.

Call SERVPRO for Water and Flood Restoration to Your Property

When the seasons are beginning to change, it is not uncommon to see weather fluctuate from heavy snowfall to heavy rainfall with little warning. When substantial snow has fallen around your Colorado Springs home, then is immediately followed by significant rainfall in the days after that, the ground that usually can soak up the water does not have a chance to dry up enough to keep up with its job.

With no place for surface water to go around your Colorado Springs house, you have all the makings of flood damage. Water is going to find a way to move if it can, and the process is not always majestic and breathtaking like a waterfall or the ocean's tide. Sometimes, it is a forceful penetration of vulnerable spots in the foundation of your home, breaking out loose mortar joints and forcing a substantial path for high volumes to get inside and wreak havoc.
