Professional Water Removal In Silt Homes
With the Colorado River running through the middle of town, Silt residents are not exactly used to floods, but it takes a lot to them blink. Experienced homeowners know that more often, it the water heater that breaks or another broken appliance or plumbing issue that forces them to call a professional removal and restoration service immediately.
For water removal in Silt homes, SERVPRO has the tools needed to perform every task needed to clear each residence. Usually, these types of disaster are minor compared to a major flood, and since the water comes from an inside source, there is rarely the need to have to clean soil and other contaminants from the floor and other surfaces.
That means that our technicians do not need to bring out the larger water pumps from our inventory, and can instead use extractions wands and other, smaller devices as their primary tools. These devices are more versatile, and operators can adjust vacuum and speed, as well as the level of applied heat to simultaneously remove water and start the process of drying out carpets and wood flooring.
As team members draw water off the carpets and floors, other SERVPRO technicians examine nearby walls and property. Even with small amounts of water, the drywall panels that make up the interior walls of a home can quickly absorb enough to cause cracking and splitting. In some cases, they can even dissolve right off the framing, holding them in place.
To avoid this, team members remove the floor trim and set up air movers. These devices force warm, dry air across the surfaces to carefully force out the moisture. It dries them without causing secondary water damage to the panels. If needed, technicians can drill a hole into each affected panel to drain any trapped water and use a hose attached to an air mover to force the warm air into the wall space to dry it.
At SERVPRO of Garfield & Pitkin Counties, our goal is to provide this level of support to every homeowner here, and in Glenwood Springs, New Castle, and Rifle. If you have had water intrusions or floods in your home, call us at (970) 618-1516 today to schedule a service call and let us help get the restoration process started.

Some Simple Steps to an Effective Commercial Flood Damage Strategy in Silt
Flooding can be completely overwhelming. Contact SERVPRO should your office building have excess standing water and flood damage.
How SERVPRO Turns Around Commercial Flood Damage in Silt Real Estate Office
Commercial flood damage halts the operation of the business until there is the removal of the water and the property is both dried and disinfected.
When groundwater breaches into a Silt business causing commercial flood damage, cleanup efforts should begin as fast as possible because as each minute passes, the level of damage to the structure increases. A business where foot traffic from the public is common needs to look and be clean; this is especially true in a real estate office where first impressions and curb appeal are everything.
Flood Loss Items Need Fast Removal
Carpet soaked by groundwater is a loss and does not have restoration potential. Water damaged sheetrock undergoes removal and baseboards too as needed. As water extraction efforts continue in the property, technicians go item by item to ascertain, which among them is a loss and what is restorable.
Pack Out of Important Documents
Listings, leads, and more are the life's blood of a real estate office. A pack out would commonly occur to ensure the critical documents went to safe storage until the cleanup of the damage from the flood water efforts completed.
Limiting Disruptions During Cleanup
SERVPRO technicians know that in the real estate market, any amount of downtime means the potential for a loss of income. They work quickly and dry large furnishings in place raised on blocks when possible. In cases where technicians performed a pack out, they return every item back to the place they removed it from after drying and disinfection of the property.
Restoration and Rebuilding
To get a business such as a real estate office reopened, it must have repairs done. Technicians work to get the property ready for any needed construction and give the property owner a list of the required repairs to return the business to its pre-flood condition.
SERVPRO of Garfield & Pitkin Counties is ready to address commercial flood damage of any size. Our technicians work quickly to limit the loss and get your business reopened. We are available 24/7 by calling (970) 618-1516 to make the incident, "Like it never even happened."

Each vehicle in our Green Fleet is stocked with equipment to dry your home.
Double Checking DIY Flood Recovery in Silt Homes
There are many situations where we encounter motivated homeowners looking to undertake substantial drying and extraction efforts for their flood-damaged Silt property. As monumental of a task as this might be, many of these same residents have been able to utilize advanced tools and equipment to overcome widespread loss effects in their house. This effort does not come without a share of potential risk, much of which centers on lingering moisture left undetected.
While we can expect our SERVPRO team address flood damage in Silt properties, we also focus on ensuring that our customers are not getting wrong information that could leave them battling overwhelming circumstances. We are a resource for flood and water recovery as we are a trusted name to address these issues efficiently and thoroughly when property owners prefer the experienced hands of professionals.
The tools that many property owners use have limitations on both power and efficiency and are often smaller or weaker versions of industrial-grade equipment available to our technicians. From an extraction point alone, residents utilize wet-vacs and submersible pumps, but these often lack the strength of the equipment that our SERVPRO team would arrive within the Green Fleet. In addition to our extractor truck, we also have specialized equipment designed to maximize water removal on specific flooring materials.
We know that we are not involved in every restoration task following flooding in our communities. We want homeowners to know that with our experience and training in the industry, we can help you to check the drying efforts completed in your house. We have advanced detection equipment like infrared imagery and moisture content meters that can find dampness and wet pockets in your home if they exist. We can even use these tools to assess wall cavities and other inaccessible areas.

Mold damage in Glenwood Springs can be an underappreciated threat, and without the appropriate steps taken quickly to limit the spread and growth of these colonies, the situation can quickly get out of control. We have a special division of our SERVPRO team with IICRC certifications as both Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) and Water Restoration Technicians (WRT), helping to address the consequence and the cause simultaneously.
Much of the work that we do to secure homes and businesses from the threat of mold damage begins with practical containment efforts. With physical barriers and the use of filtering tools like negative air chambers and air scrubbers, we can limit the spread of mold spores throughout moist areas of Glenwood Springs homes. In addition to limiting the spread, our remediation specialists can begin work on removing colonies with antimicrobial sprays, sanding, soda blasting, and in extreme cases, material removal.
Success in remediation for our SERVPRO team is more than just removing the present threat, but ensuring that the same problem does not happen again and again in Glenwood Springs properties.

When a Water Supply Line Unexpectedly Supplies Your Silt Home With Water Damage
Burst pipe while you were at work? We are always ready to handle your unexpected water loss situations.
Call SERVPRO When Your Silt Kitchen Needs Water Removal Services
Many things in our kitchen can cause a need for professional water removal services. A broken faucet, a faulty ice maker, or a busted dishwasher, to name a few. Once an unreliable appliance causes a mess, we can find ourselves in need of external help. However, fortunately for you, there is always help close at hand when you need it.
In the case of your home, your Silt kitchen needed water removal services because a water supply line, under your sink, burst while you were away at work. It is always wise to check on old piping or supply lines from time to time, as some are not always made to last. If a section of plumbing seems to be straining, call for a professional opinion before the accident happens.
However, always being preemptive is not very practical. Sometimes, accidents happen very suddenly, and there is nothing that could have been done to change them. For this reason, companies like SERVPRO exist, to help you when an accident happens.
Here at SERVPRO, we focus on our priorities around being there for you when you need us, as quickly as possible. After receiving your initial call, our team of technicians, certified by the Institution of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration (IICRC,) immediately begin to gather together.

When our team of SERVPRO IICRC-certified techs arrive at your home, they can get to work immediately. We pride ourselves on our work ethic as well as our swift reaction times. The first task is to remove the puddled water from your kitchen and discard it, using devices such as wet/dry vacuums and extractors.
We can then bring drying equipment into your kitchen to remove the excess moisture from your floor, as well as under the sink. We can use pieces of equipment, such as dehumidifiers and heaters, to encourage the moisture to evaporate. Once finished, we can help you order a new supply line for your sink and then recommend a plumber to install it.
When your home finds itself in need of water removal services, don't wait to get them. Communicate with SERVPRO of Garfield & Pitkin Counties by calling (970) 618-1516. Night or day, we're ready to assist you.

SERVPRO Is Swift to Mitigate the Fire and Smoke Damage to Your New Castle Property
Soot Stains and Smoke Odors Are Best Left to SERVPRO to Restore Your New Castle Home, "Like it never even happened."
What You Can Do About Fire Damage in Your New Castle Home Before Help Arrives
Statistics from the National Fire Protection Association, estimate around 370,000 house fires occur every year, resulting in nearly $7 billion in overall property damages. Fortunately, the majority of fires happen where only a portion of the home is damaged, which negates the need for complete demolition and rebuild or perhaps none at all but can lead to other issues such as the spread of soot or odors.
Before SERVPRO arrives at your New Castle home to clean up fire damage, there are things you can do to make the mitigation go even faster and limit loss.
? Turn off the HVAC to limit the spread of soot via ductwork
? Have as little foot traffic in the affected area as possible
? Close the doors to the fire loss area
? If you attempt to clean, remove only light, dry soot with a dry sponge or rag, better yet, with a vacuum
? Do not use wet sponges or cleaners as this can grind soot into surfaces
Once our technicians are on-site, we contain the fire loss area using a thick-gauge plastic barrier (usually 6-mil) over doorways and vents to stop the spread of soot. The room is ventilated if appropriate, charred debris removed and restorable items removed for cleaning. SERVPRO technicians try to limit loss as much as possible for homeowners through our proprietary restoration methods.
Odor control is a large part of fire loss cleanup. Odor-causing soot particles exist smaller than the human eye can see and travel throughout the home unless contained and removed. We used equipment such as air scrubbers with HEPA filters to capture airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns and trap them. When our technicians complete fire debris removal and mitigation efforts, the room is ready for any needed repairs or reconstruction.
SERVPRO of Garfield & Pitkin Counties stands ready to assist local property owners with fire damage. Call us anytime at (970) 618-1516, and our emergency response teams arrive within hours to remove the fire loss from your home "Like it never even happened."

There are initial steps that a property owner can take to reduce the spread of the water damage, the severity of this situation, and the ultimate cost involved in restoring the effects.

We can mobilize quickly to get mitigation and restoration work started in your home. Here are some steps that you can take to make the process more efficient and cost-effective:
Often this is not challenging to accomplish, but it can help to narrow your immediate actions to cut off water flow to a particular appliance, portion of piping, or the entire plumbing system in the household until our SERVPRO professionals arrive.
- Contain the Damage as Best as You Can
Sometimes closing a door and pushing a towel against the bottom can stop water flow to other rooms long enough for our technicians to arrive and get started on extraction.
We have an entire content management division. There is little we can do for some items that have spent hours directly exposed to standing water. Move at-risk items to safe areas of your home.
Water damage recovery comes in multiple phases. These approaches can happen more quickly and more thoroughly with a combination of our SERVPRO of Garfield & Pitkin Counties trained professionals and the efforts of our customers before our team arrives.

Recovery From Commercial Flood Damage – Faster When Silt Businesses Are READY With Skilled Professionals
Flooding in different parts of Silt affects businesses of all sizes. SERVPRO’s Emergency READY Profile helps businesses reduce the impact felt by all kinds of disasters. Our READY Profile collects pertinent information about a business and its operations in one easily-accessible location so owners, managers, and our team can work together from the start to achieve the best possible results.

We’re Faster to Any Size Disaster, giving all our customers an advantage against time and the inevitable enlargement of damaged areas. An up-to-date READY plan makes us even more efficient.
We want to help you re-establish your store’s normal operations and get your doors open again. The sooner you can recover, “Like it never even happened,” the less likely it becomes for the flood damage to have permanent ill effects on your business. It might seem highly cost-effective to have your employees clean things up after a flood. However, when contaminated water covers large areas or affects numerous pieces of inventory and furnishings, the risks increase significantly to both your employees’ health and to anything not yet damaged.
Technicians at SERVPRO study and participate in in-house training to earn recognition from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). The areas covered during our studies include the wide variety of proper cleaning methods and techniques to cover the diverse materials found in homes and businesses today. Our goal is to help businesses recover after disasters affect their buildings as quickly as possible, restoring functionality and safety, so people do not experience health effects or other issues.
With flooding, damage includes swelling up of flooring materials, an overload of pathogens and chemicals on everything touched by the water, dramatically increased humidity, odors, debris, and other risk-filled changes. Mitigating the area and eliminating these problems requires that workers stay protected with proper personal protective equipment (PPE), as well as understand both the risks and the techniques necessary to avoid injury. Because every team member at SERVPRO arrives prepared with both mitigation equipment and their own PPE, safely restoring your store or office occurs efficiently and in a safe manner.
SERVPRO of Garfield & Pitkin Counties helps restore office complexes, factories, shops, restaurants, and other commercial buildings after flood damage occurs. When your property in New Castle, Rifle, or Parachute needs mitigation and restoration services, call us at (970) 618-1516.

We Have The Proper Equipment To Restore Your Silt Home
We have the necessary equipment to restore any storm damage big or small that causes flooding.
Extracting Standing Water and Establishing Dry Methods after Flood Damage in Silt
A flooded property poses several tough questions to a homeowner. There is a myriad of different factors to consider, such as furniture, flooring, carpeting, fittings, and fixtures. Getting the excess water out is crucial, but after standing water is gone, waterlogged contents or structure can cause just as much damage. Our restoration company has the experience to tackle each challenge strategically and can deploy the correct equipment for each stage. An established gameplan to restoring a flooded property is crucial to minimizing both losses and secondary damages.
Homeowners with flood damage in their Silt property need to understand that time is a contributing factor to the restoration process. Flooring weakens under the increased weight and pressure of standing water. There is also a water migration issue to consider, whereby flooded rooms leak moisture into structural cavities or subfloor. Finally, microbial growth thrives in wet, humid conditions and can grow into colonies in as little as 48 hours, so your structure and contents need proper drying to guard against secondary damages.
SERVPRO operates a rapid-response unit for emergency flood situations. Depending on the scale of operation, we can send a technician, or several, to your property to mitigate losses. Safety comes first. A water restoration technician (WRT) can scope your property for electrical hazards, restore shut off power, and test floors or ceilings for structural weakness. Once the scoping procedure is complete, we can bring in the required equipment to remove standing water.
Removing excess quantities of water can be done quickly by using extraction units and gas-powered pumping equipment. SERVPRO technicians can usually remove excess water within a day. The next step is to bring in professional drying equipment like dehumidifiers and rapid air-movers. Depending on the scope of the project, this process can take anywhere from 24 hours to a few weeks. A SERVPRO technician can take relative humidity readings, and moisture content readings to ensure the expected outcomes are being achieved daily until the home is returned to its condition before the flood damage.
An efficient restoration procedure requires the ability to remove standing water quickly before establishing an informed drying method. Contact SERVPRO of Garfield & Pitkin Counties at (970) 618-1516 today.

Fire Restoration Professionals Talk About Cleaning Methods to Restore Fire Damaged Rifle Homes
There is not a one size fits all solution to clean fire damaged possession. SERVPRO has several cleaning methods used to restore your home.
Restoring Fire Damage Property in Rifle Homes
Despite having the Colorado running through town, Rifle residents know that fire season is just getting underway. Recent rains dry up quickly as the temperature rises and put their homes at risk.
Fire damage in Rifle homes can be everything from a burned out roof to the thick smoke residues coating every surface in the kitchen, dining room, and elsewhere after a fire. SERVPRO response crews train their personnel as Fire & Smoke Damage Restoration Technicians, or FSRTs to ensure they can clean residues on everything from upholstery fabrics to drywall, and more.
Each FSRT trains to become skilled on four primary cleaning actions. Each one is designed to break residues from the surface they adhere to after the fire. Depending on the surface and type of residues, technicians use Suspension and Dispersion, Mechanical, Lubrication, or Chemical Actions.
Suspension and Dispersion is the first and most common cleaning action used by SERVPRO. Technicians loosen soils with a cleaning product, which become suspended in the solution, and dispersed. Suspension happens when the soils dissolve in the cleaner or remain intact inside a cleaner they cannot mix with chemically. FSRTs remove them using a sponge or extraction device. It is useful on items like drywall.
Mechanical Action is also called Agitation. Technicians use it, sometimes with a cleaning agent, to physically break up residue layers on fabrics, stone, metal, and more. Since some surfaces absorb cleaning products, a scrub brush or mechanical agitator is also a preferred method to remove them along with the residues and other soils.
Lubrication Action breaks the link between residues and surfaces by making them slippery. The detergents and other cleaners work their way under the residue or other soil so they ‘slide’ into them for easy removal. It is a particularly useful action on glass and metal surfaces.
Chemical Action alters residues by application of a cleaning agent. The alteration allows technicians to more easily remove them using sponges, vacuums, and devices like extraction wands to pull residues and the shampoo cleaner from carpets.
At SERVPRO of Garfield & Pitkin Counties, we understand that a home is far more than four walls and a roof. Memories sometimes link closely to personal property, so our response teams take every action possible to restore the items in Glenwood Springs, New Castle, and Silt homes, as well as the structure, to their pre-fire condition. To schedule a service visit, contact us at (970) 618-1516.
