Fire. It’s scary, lethal, and causes incredible damage to homes and businesses. From the time we are young, we’re taught the dangers of fire and what to avoid. As adults in our homes, we install smoke detectors and fire extinguishers. At our businesses, we invest in sprinkler systems and have escape routes planned for employees. Even with all this knowledge and preparedness, fires still ravage homes and businesses in Boulder, CO, and comprehensive fire damage restoration is needed as a result.
When called to a building fire, the firefighters responding to the scene are trained to do everything in their power to save the building and douse the flames. One of the techniques they use is creating ventilation holes. This is a tactic used to draft smoke out of the building and create clear exits for smoke and heat so the firefighters can enter the building safely.
These ventilation holes will serve not only to let the firefighters into the building but also help as an escape hatch. In multi-story buildings, these ventilation holes will move the smoke vertically out of the building. These holes allow more precise access to stop the fire. However, once the fire is out, it allows entry for pests, vandals, and the elements.
ServiceMaster DSI has trained technicians to be on the scene quickly to provide board up services for ventilation holes as well as servicing the Boulder, CO, area with complete fire damage restoration services. Water damage is also present after a fire, and we can assist with water removal and drying. If any items need to be removed from the home for cleaning we provide pack out services as well.
Our goal is to bring your home back to pre-loss condition as soon as possible after fire damage. If you’re struggling with the after-effects of fire, contact us in Boulder, CO, for fire damage restoration at (720) 452-2842.

Unattended Death Cleanup
When someone dies, the body begins to secrete bodily fluids immediately. The process of decomposition begins quickly and can release toxic chemicals into flooring, mattresses, and any other place the body lies. These naturally occurring fluids must be handled with care. If an untrained person works with them they can be accidently exposed to dangerous pathogens. Our trained technicians know how to safely clean and dispose of fluids that are present after death.
The living space of hoarders requires knowledgeable, specialized cleanup care. Besides the need for careful sanitation and removal of toxic items, there may also be restoration services needed.

Hoarding is a psychological disorder that culminates with a home that has dangerous levels of unsanitary clutter. These conditions in a Westminster, CO, home are serious and increase the risk of injury to the occupants. People who struggle with hoarding cannot part with objects, and this build-up of papers, food, trash, and even animals can cause hazardous living conditions and pose a risk of fire damage. If you know someone who is affected by a hoarding disorder, we can help.
Fire Risk is Increased by the Following Scenarios in a Hoarders Home:
- Flammable items in the kitchen near the stove that can catch fire
- Blocked heating ducts can overheat items nearby
- Clutter can damage electrical wires
- Blocking of exits at home
- Burning candles can ignite, and fire can spread very quickly
- Clutter makes it difficult to get pets out of the home safely
People who have hoarding issues often find it difficult to reach out for help. If you have a family member or friend who needs hoarding cleanup in Westminster, CO, our qualified technicians can be on-site quickly to help before a disaster occurs in the home.

After a violent crime occurs, authorities secure the site, but the responsibility of cleanup is left to the property owners. If a loved one is a victim of a crime, the idea of cleanup can be almost unthinkable. Not only can it be psychologically damaging, but it can also present a grave health risk. In the presence of a crime scene, there are often bodily fluids present which contain bloodborne pathogens, and they must be handled very carefully. In Lakewood, CO, ServiceMaster DSI has trained trauma cleanup specialists to assist you in this challenging time.
To understand the risks, it’s important to know that bloodborne pathogens can infect other people up to as much as seven days after the blood has dried. In some cases, HIV and other bacteria can last for up to two weeks. The risks of contamination are high if proper protocols are not observed and if proper disposal is not taken care. We can assist with:
- Traffic accident cleanup
- Crime scene cleanup
- Unattended deaths
- Methamphetamine accidents
- Industrial accidents
Our trained trauma cleanup technicians will be on site quickly to assist you after we get the call and will have all of the equipment needed to remediate the scene. All of our technicians have the right training and compassion to get the job done right, and we abide by all best practices as outlined by state and local authorities as well as OSHA.
If there is any glass, debris, or other items that need to be cleaned up from the scene we can assist with that as well, including accidents that may have chemical biohazards present. This type of cleanup should never be attempted by someone without precise knowledge because the health risks are so significant. Even if you can’t see the chemicals, they could be leached into floors and walls, and you could become infected.
If you find yourself in need of any trauma or disaster cleanup, contact us anytime day or night. We can be reached in Lakewood, CO, at (720) 452-2842.
