    Prevent the Need for Disaster Restoration by Keeping your Boulder, CO, Home Safe from Natural and Man-Made Disasters

    DSI_Denver_3.1

    With Hurricane Harvey battering the Texas coast and Irma hitting the Florida coast, it’s a fair statement to say that seeing the devastation puts all in mind of nature’s brutal force. While Boulder, CO, doesn’t have to worry about being in a hurricane’s path, it doesn’t take a natural disaster to cause extensive water damage in your home. Heavy rainstorms, faulty plumbing, and broken appliances wreak havoc in homes more often than a natural disaster.

    What to Do When Your Home is Faced with Water Damage

    • Act quickly, and call ServiceMaster DSI at (720) 452-2842. The longer the water sits, the more extensive the water damage will be
    • Call your insurance agent promptly
    • If it’s safe to do so, stop the source of water. Never enter an area where the water may be in contact with electricity
    • If you can’t turn off the water safely, call a plumber
    • Document the damage with photos and videos
    • Turn on fans and open doors and windows to help with the drying process
    • If sewage is present, don’t attempt any cleaning or remain in the building. Sewage can contain airborne pathogens that can make you very sick

    When you’re faced with a disaster in your Boulder, CO, home, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and upset. At this difficult time, surround yourself with professionals who know how to get the job done right the first time. While a situation like water damage is certainly unfortunate, you don’t want to have to go through the process of recovery again if the situation is not remediated properly the first time.

    About Hazardous Materials

     Hazardous materials in the United States are required to be marked with an easy to read classification symbol developed by the National Fire Protection Association. Before any substances are used in the workplace anyone who works around them should be required to read the MSDS, or Material Data Safety Sheet, to familiarize themselves with the makeup of the chemicals, how they react with other substances, and the potential hazards they could cause or create. Reading these materials is very important because if you are working with materials that are combustible there should be clear company procedures on how to protect yourself. Cleaning any substance that is flammable should be left to professional biohazard cleanup crews with proper training and equipment. Corrosive or oxidation risk materials are also commonplace chemicals found in industrials, and if handled incorrectly, can cause serious burns or irritation of skin or lungs. If mixed incorrectly, a large amount of heat can be generated.

    Compliance is Key to Avoiding Serious Disasters

    All our ServiceMaster DSI Denver, CO, based crews adhere to best practices and OSHA standards for proper eyewear, clothing, and removal techniques for biohazard and chemical cleanup. They can safely identify the types of substances spilled or leaked during the industrial accident and determine the best course of remediation, leaving you to deal with other important issues at hand. Our trained professional staff will provide the most thorough and complete cleanup of the biohazard scene safely and quickly and we can also provide restoration services if necessary.

    While a trauma and biohazard cleanup in your Denver, CO, workplace is never welcomed, we are here for your business if things go wrong. Trust ServiceMaster DSI to properly remediate any industrial accident cleanup. Contact us by phone at (720) 452-2842 or online here.

    Pack Out Services After a Home Disaster in Centennial, CO

    If you have been the victim of a disaster such as fire, flood, or a natural disaster, your home may need several weeks or even months of repair. During this time, it’s important that the contents of your home are kept safe. So just what exactly are pack-out services, which do you need, and why should you hire a professional to do this service?
    Protecting Your Valuables

    The main goal of a pack-out service is to protect your items. During this time, the items may be cleaned or simply stored, depending on the damage done. To prevent further damage to your valuables, it’s important that this service is done by a company with experience in disaster restoration services. Depending on the circumstances, your items may be stored in a secure location in your home or off-site.
    Onsite Pack-Out

    If the damage is not too extensive or contained to one area, often items can be safely secured within your home. Our trained technicians can assess the areas and the damage to determine if your valuables are best kept there during the reconstruction process.

    Container Pack-Out

    If there are a lot of items, large items, or the damage is too widespread to store items in the home, a container or pod can be used. We can advise and assist you with obtaining the permits needed or determining allowable areas that the container may be legally used in your area in Centennial, CO. The items are locked and secured in these units until the home is restored.
    Off-Site Pack-Out
    In the case of wide scale damage to a home, an off-site storage unit may be necessary.

In some cases, your homeowner’s insurance may cover these costs.
    Reduce Loss of Property

While you get back on your feet, we’ll work tirelessly to restore your home and keep your property safe.

    Sewage Contamination Cleanup After Severe Storms in Boulder, CO

    With the variable weather in Colorado, we’re used to storm fronts coming in quickly and sometimes without much warning. Unfortunately, these storms can cause widespread flooding. Precipitation from rain or snow melt can cause sewers to back up or main lines to be infiltrated. ServiceMaster DSI can assist with sewage and storm damage cleanup in your Boulder, CO, home or business.

    When it comes to sewer damage, you should never attempt to remediate the situation by yourself. Dangerous microbes, germs, and mold can infect the area quickly, putting your health and the health of the building’ inhabitants at risk. Having an experienced, trained company to help you at this critical time is key to minimizing losses.

    The Cleaning Process

    The type of sewage contamination will be assessed so that the technicians can work to safely restore the area and remove the water damage. Once the water is safely removed and the electricity is restored, our technicians can begin to work on the infected area.  Our technicians will make every effort to clean every item that the sewage may have come into contact with.

    Walls, floors, and other areas will be cleaned using specialized solutions that safely clean and disinfect.

    If clothing has been affected, they will be cleaned by dry cleaning or hot water cleaning methods.

    Furniture and carpeting affected only by water and not by contaminated sewage may be able to be cleaned and restored. If not, we can remove the items for disposal.

    After the sewer damage cleanup and disinfection procedures are completed, the affected area and items are thoroughly dried to prevent mold growth.

    If sewage affects the outside of the home, storm damage technicians can assist with this as well by sprinkling lime and then disposing of it after it absorbs the sewage.

    Our disaster hotline is available to you if you have suffered storm or sewage damage clean up and need disaster restoration services in Boulder, CO. Our expert technicians have the correct equipment, cleaning solutions, and experience to help you through this difficult time.

    Stay Safe, Stay Aware, and Recover After Severe Weather With Disaster Restoration in Boulder, CO

    Severe weather such as thunderstorms and hail are common during the spring and fall in Boulder, Colorado. Hail forms within storms that blow in and freezes in the upper level of the storm front. These “stones” can vary from pea- to softball-sized and are, amazingly, kept aloft by strong updraft winds around the mountain areas. They can travel long distances before they drop over unsuspecting homes. If the National Weather Service issues a severe storm warning, you should immediately move to shelter. Severe weather can cause significant damage to your home or business. If your property experiences damage, you may be in need of the disaster restoration services provided by ServiceMaster DSI.

    If you hear thunder or see lightening and you’re outdoors, stop what you’re doing and get to shelter. It doesn’t have to be raining for you to be struck by lightning. Most people struck by lightning had a safe shelter nearby but didn’t think the weather was severe or sought shelter under a tree. If it all possible, shelter should be taken indoors in a basement or lower level as strong winds can turn items into swiftly moving objects that can cause harm. The only safe place to be when lightning is occurring is inside either a building or an enclosed automobile.

    If you love to hike in our beautiful state, it’s important to note that in Colorado, thunderstorms typically develop in the mountains in the afternoon. Plan hikes for the morning, and if thunderstorms are in the forecast, consider planning an alternate indoor activity until the all-clear is given.

    Hail can do tremendous damage to roofs and the subsequent storms that accompany them can damage foundations with floodwaters. It only takes a few inches of standing water to cause significant water damage to a home and one lightning strike can cause house fires and smoke damage. If your home in Boulder, CO, has sustained damage and needs debris cleanup, water damage restoration, or board up services, ServiceMaster DSI can be on site quickly to help restore order. Contact us at (301) 288-2900 when you need help and our disaster restoration technicians can be dispatched anytime, day or night.
