Restore vs. Replace?

5/26/2022 (Permalink)

When your house has been damaged by fire or water, SERVPRO of Grand Junction's mission is to make it "Like it never even happened" as quickly as possible and at the lowest possible cost to you.

Part of recovering your home and belongings includes identifying which things and structures can be preserved using our cutting-edge restoration procedures and equipment and which will need to be replaced—according to research conducted by the insurance and repair industries, restoring property after the fire and water damage is less expensive than replacing it. Restoring is also less disruptive to our clients, allowing them to stay in their homes throughout the process and rapidly return to normal.

 Our SERVPRO Team is trained to identify when restoring can be performed with the high-quality outcomes that our clients deserve as a preferred mitigation and restoration partner for most major insurance companies. This "repair" rather than "replace" mindset can help you save money while keeping family treasures, keepsakes, and other impossible or prohibitively expensive items to replace.

If your home or business has been impacted by water or fire damage, call the professionals at SERVPRO of Grand Junction today at 970-241-8181.

Common Causes of Window Leaks in your Palisade house

3/28/2022 (Permalink)

Window leaks Window leaks

Windows leaking is particularly common, and they also make it difficult for homeowners to determine what the problem may be. However, there are many factors to consider when analyzing the cause of a window leak, so before repair can take place, a diagnosis is necessary.

Main reasons that windows leak and what you can do about them.

The window is leaking at the bottom.

If the windows have metal or vinyl frames, they have drain holes near the bottom edge of the frame. These holes are designed to allow the water to escape the frame, but they can become clogged. Clean out the jams.

Water on the Windows When There's No Rain

Water droplets that form on the inside of the glass that doesn't correspond to the outdoor weather are a sign of condensation. It can be easily remedied by adjusting your home's humidity with central air conditioning or a dehumidifier. By lowering the moisture levels in the air, you can reduce the amount of condensation that forms on the window. Excess condensation can lead to mold growth over time.

Water is coming in around the window.

Often, these leaks happen because the caulk or sealant around the window has gotten old and cracked, allowing rain to enter the house. The fix for this situation is simple – peel out the old caulking and replace it with new window caulking.

The window leaking Around the Top of Your Window

Leaks at the top of the window can signify mistakes made during installation. For instance, the flashing might be improperly installed, or it might be missing altogether. However, if the house wrap isn't correctly installed, that could cause the window to leak, too.

Water is leaking between the panes of a double-paned window.

The glass seal has deteriorated, and rain is working between the panes. However, that gas that's supposed to be between the panes to provide an insulating factor is gone. Installing new windows will increase the home's energy efficiency.

 For any water damage in your home or commercial property, SERVPRO of Grand Junction's highly trained technicians are ready to help you out 24/7. We'll restore the water damage and make it look "Like it never even happened." Call us today at 970-949-3235.

A Rich History of SERVPRO Service

2/1/2022 (Permalink)

Servpro vans SERVPRO vans

For over 50 years, people across the country have been turning to SERVPRO for all of their restoration and remediation needs. Whenever disaster strikes, we are among the first to respond and help communities large and small get back on the road to recovery. We take pride in that reputation and in our rich history that has helped to build the SERVPRO brand.

That history began in 1967 when Ted and Doris Isaacson founded their painting business, but it wasn’t long before SERVPRO had expanded to become the cleaning and restoration specialists you can trust. In 1969 the Isaacson's sold their first franchise and by 1979 they had expanded to 175 franchises across the country.

With the company outgrowing its original headquarters, it moved to Gallatin, Tennessee in 1988, by which time it counted a total of 647 franchises under the SERVPRO brand. The 1,000th SERVPRO franchise was opened in 2000 and today there are more than 1,700 franchises nationwide. As it continued to add franchises, SERVPRO built its reputation as a nationally recognized name in restoration and cleaning.

From the very beginning, SERVPRO has been about more than just providing quality professional restoration services. We also take great pride in our tradition of service to the community. This includes both national recognition for the corporate headquarters and individual efforts that have earned acclaim for the many local franchises. Here at SERVPRO of Grand Junction, we’ve reached out to our neighbors and lent a hand in many different ways.

Time and again, SERVPRO has been among the first to step up and provide help when a major disaster strikes. We’ve helped with cleanup after the California wildfires, bailed out communities in the Midwest after historic flooding, and pitched in to help rebuild after the devastation of Super Storm Sandy on the East Coast. No job is too big or small and we’ll never turn our backs on a community in need.

When damage occurs, you need someone you can count on to provide the professional service you need with the personal touch you deserve. SERVPRO is proud of our history as the first name in water, fire, and storm damage repair and restoration. We’re ready to respond faster to any disaster and we’ll stand by you and help you get on your feet again because that’s what being a good neighbor is all about.

SERVPRO is a family owned company and we understand the importance of community. At the worst of moments that’s when communities come together to help each other repair and rebuild. We take pride in being part of that process and we do everything we can to put our customers’ needs first.  We’ve been involved in many recovery efforts across the country, from the California wildfires to the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast.

Anything we can do to help keep our community safe is worthwhile because what benefits one of us benefits us all.

Today, we’re all facing new challenges from the Covid pandemic, and SERVPRO has stepped up to meet those needs as well.

With the launch of our “Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned” program we’ve been part of the effort to safely reopen many of our communities. The Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned program carefully follows CDC guidelines for safety and cleanliness with a focus on addressing viral pathogens.

At SERVPRO we’ve always put community first and that makes us the name you can rely on when disaster strikes.

Why Choosing a Qualified Preferred Vendor Matters

5/26/2021 (Permalink)

Why Choosing a Qualified Preferred Vendor Matters

A client calls your office to report that they have an insurance claim in Grand Junction, CO. Like most business owners facing a disaster, they're anxious to get the cleanup and restoration process completed as quickly as possible. As an insurance agent, you have a responsibility to help your client get the help they need while keeping costs down for your company. Luckily, you have a list of preferred vendors, and you inform your client that the names on that list are truly the best. Here's why it matters to you and your client that they choose a preferred vendor.

1. Qualified
To participate in the vendor program, a company has to verify that they are qualified to complete the services that they say they provide. Vendors who value their business will keep good records of certifications. Still, it's even more important to know that the staff receives regular continuing education to stay on top of the latest best practices. A company like SERVPRO has a set of twenty-one guidelines that employees of each franchise must meet to remain on preferred vendor lists.

2. Compliant
In addition to qualified staff, a preferred vendor who wants to be recommended by an insurance agent must maintain compliance with all industry standards. This means that the tools they use, the standards to which they complete jobs, and how they maintain project paperwork all have to be above board. The easiest way to ensure that these things happen is to work with a company with consistent expectations for every franchisee.

3. Professional
The last thing that your client wants to deal with is a vendor who doesn't keep in touch. SERVPRO has the reach to ensure that calls are answered and the resources to keep every project organized.
As an insurance agent, you want your clients to be confident when choosing a restoration company after a disaster. Encourage your clients to use the preferred vendor list to be confident that they are working with the best in the business.

    Cross Contamination is a Concern: Here's How You Can Prevent It

    5/9/2020 (Permalink)

    Finger of a woman turning off an air conditioning Turn off fans and AC units if you see visible mold in your home

    Use the Following To Prevent Additional Contamination

    Mold cleanup requires careful attention to detail. In fact, business owners in Palisade, CO, should be aware that spores spread very quickly. In fact, if they are not controlled, the infestation spreads further, making remediation more extensive and pricey. Therefore, it's best to work with a reputable mold restoration company to identify the full extent of damage. Furthermore, to keep your premises as safe as possible, use the following to prevent additional contamination.

    1. Test the Building
    Because mold spores reproduce within 24 to 48 hours, the number of microbes can expand from a small area to an entire structure much sooner than you'd believe. With that in mind, you'll want to find out exactly how much of the property is impacted. Experts can use various assessments to conclude where fungal growth has gone.
    2. Establish Barriers
    Once you know the hazardous territory, you can work to create a boundary. No one should go into these zones unless authorized from by the specialists. Mold cleanup, then, becomes focused on specific spaces. Be very aware that it's easy to relocate a growth. Spores can be picked up on shoes or clothes and then dropped onto carpet or tile as you enter another space. With that in mind, stay out as much as possible. If you must, post signs to warn others.
    3. Turn Off the AC
    Part of mold contamination includes cutting off the air circulation. Microorganisms such as fungus transport via the airways. Thus, the vent system is a serious concern, allowing for unnecessary movement. The crew can set up negative air chambers, keeping the infected air from entering other rooms. In addition, the ac unit should be shut off.
    Remain on your toes. Mold cleanup isn't just spraying something with cleaner. It's an awareness of how easily something can become a major issue. Cut off contact with the location, and allow the specialists to tend to the problem.

    How and Why Mold Grows on Bread

    3/24/2020 (Permalink)

    Mold growth on bread Bread mold is common and nothing to be alarmed over

    Four Reasons Why Mold Loves Bread

    Not every fungal occurrence needs a mold remediation expert in Grand Junction, CO. Food mold, especially bread mold, is a common phenomenon, and it only requires a garbage bag. Although, the constant and rapid molding of food can be a sign of a more significant issue. However, there are four typical reasons mold loves bread.

    • Ingredients
    • Porous Surface
    • Temperature
    • Light


    While many people like to avoid bread because of the carbs and gluten, it is still food. Mold is a type of fungus growth, but it is also a living organism that requires nutrients to survive. Bread is a good source of nutrients because of the yeast and other common ingredients.

    Porous Surface

    Bread mold starts as a spore, and that spore cannot just set up a home anywhere. Mold spores need to root into a surface, which means the surface must be porous. If you have ever looked at a piece of bread, then you know that its surface is full of pours.


    Beyond nutrition and a place to take root, mold needs a cool space to grow. Many people believe that putting bread in their fridge will prevent mold, but fridge mold is very real. Placing bread in the refrigerator might actually reduce its lifespan and make it more susceptible to fungal growth.


    Mold is sensitive to light, which is why it prefers dark spaces. However, that does not mean you should put your bread on the counter or in the window. Drawers and bread boxes are preferred because they help limit the exposure to mold spores, which are everywhere. Although, you should also keep your bread in a sealed bag or container to further reduce exposure.
    Bread mold is common and nothing to be alarmed over. Although, if you are experiencing rapid fungal growth on multiple food items, then you might want to call a specialist to inspect your home for signs of a fungal infestation.

    We Put The Flames Of Worry Out In Grand Junction After A Fire

    We have the equipment, training, and experience to restore your home to pre-damage condition after fire. We are available 24/7 so call us right away.

    Packing out Contents and Performing Reconstruction of a Grand Junction Home with Fire Damage

    Fire Damage Grand Junction

    Sometimes a fire can burn hot enough and long enough to cause structural damage to your home. Electrical fires in living rooms often find an abundant supply of dry materials that can exponentially increase the intensity of the combusting materials. In these situations, it may be unsafe for you to re-enter the home, and temporary relocation is a necessity. Our restoration services are comprehensive and compassionate for homeowners who are temporarily displaced as a result of the fire.

    We provide fire damage restoration to Grand Junction residents for any size disaster. Our pack-out services are available to residents who are unfortunate enough to experience a severe property damage incident. During pack out, our team of SERVPRO technicians can store information on your content using a digital inventory. These inventories help us to record the condition of possessions as well as their location in the home. Our team can enlist professional removers on your behalf to ensure that the pack out procedure runs smoothly.

    Content fire damage removal during pack out is taken to a climate-controlled warehouse. Certains items like clothing and fabrics can be given special cleaning when at the warehouse. Esporta washing machines are particularly effective at restoring damaged fabrics because they suspend the fabric while mechanical washers provide water and cleaning solution. SERVPRO can incorporate deodorization of your contents during storage to ensure they return to the home in a preloss condition.

    The advantage of a pack out for restorers is that we gain unrestricted access to the structure of your home. The roster of SERVPRO technicians includes those who complete a 10 hours general and construction training program. This training allows us to conduct reconstruction of the structure in your home without having to rely on a third-party. During service removal and replacement of materials is conducted entirely by SERVPRO. We dispose of any non-salvageable materials in designated waste facilities.

    Experiencing severe fire is stressful. We can help ensure that the restoration process is calm and efficient. Contact SERVPRO of Grand Junction at (970) 241-8181.

    Grand Junction and the Surrounding Areas Benefit from SERVPRO’s Cleanup and Restoration Services

    11/25/2019 (Permalink)

    Grand Junction Co has a very famous SERVPRO Franchise Ready to Help with Cleanup and Restoration after Property Damaging Events

    Our Sense of Community and Responsibility Are Why SERVPRO Crews Demonstrate Dedication in Grand Junction

    We embrace the challenge of providing premium-quality disaster recovery services to residents and businesses in our region of Colorado. Located in Grand Junction, our headquarters and production facility hums with activity, bringing professional skills and commercial-grade equipment to your crisis. Commitment to addressing the human part of the restoration equation is a priority. Our management and employees work through all phases of a project with sensitivity and compassion, understanding our efforts can restore peace of mind and comfort as well as properties.

    Water Damage

    Residential water losses often have mundane backstories, but the effects of leaks and water intrusions can be severe in Grand Junction, no matter the cause. Sometimes the emergency is dramatic, like a main supply pipe or water heater bursting, capable of filling your lower levels with inches to feet of water. Other times the damage goes undetected for weeks or months, tiny pipe leaks or areas of condensation slowly building layer upon layer of harm to structural components or fixtures.

    No water damage in Grand Junction is too severe or too inconsequential for our services. SERVPRO also promotes continuing education for all of our technicians and project leads, ensuring we remain sharp and grounded in the restoration industry's best practices. Whereas substantial leaks are easy to locate, our crews also specialize in a range of moisture detection strategies, tracking the migration of water and its damage away from the source. Moisture probes analyze how much liquid porous structures absorbed during the loss. Infrared imaging uses temperature differentials to pinpoint where quantities of hidden water might be trapped.

    Tracing the path of water incursions is vital to overall water damage restoration success. Our crew members use submersible pumps and high-efficiency extractors to remove the bulk of the water, striving to collect and properly dispose of as much as possible. If we locate a potential cache of water behind a structure controlled demolition techniques like flood cuts or drilled holes permit access for release and to improve drying times. Air movers and heaters concentrate on moving absorbed fluid into the air as vapor. Then our evaporative or desiccant dehumidifiers can finish water removal by capturing it for disposal.

    Fire Damage

    A Grand Junction household fire can be devastating. Your priority is getting family members and pets away from the smoke and flames.

    Mold Remediation

    Unaddressed small leaks and incompletely dried water losses are two common reasons we see mold growth in Grand Junction. Mold spores are benign for most purposes when dry, tiny, and inconsequential despite being in all environments. Add 24 to 48 hours of dampness to the mix, and many strains of mold can proliferate.

    Musty smells and dark staining are clues that your Grand Junction home has mold damage. We know how disturbing mold growth can be, so we train our crew members through IICRC and other courses to remediate your scenario. Our fast response and adherence to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-developed protocols are why SERVPRO should be your first call. We can remove active colonies, dispose of the debris according to local regulations, and disinfect the affected areas.

    Once we complete a job, the mold spore levels in your home reduce to normal. Mold spores remain in all environments. You cannot rely on any business that tells you they can eliminate mold entirely from your house. Instead, our well-qualified crews work with you to locate the moisture sources that caused the mold outbreak and help you arrange to eliminate the water incursion. Our technicians perform any water damage remediation and dry out the area to specifications as research supports. Our integrity, honesty, and practical solutions are why SERVPRO is a reliable mold remediation company.

    Storm Damage

    Water Damage Grand Junction – Call the Experts

    Consumers and business owners are often overwhelmed after experiencing a catastrophic event. Many take several days to react sufficiently to the event. People need time to process what has happened and take action to begin the recovery process. While this is a perfectly natural human reaction, it is much better to call in the experts to help you deal with everything and get started immediately with recovery and restoration.

    SERVPRO in Grand Junction has a great deal of experience with water damage recovery and restoration. Our crew chiefs are trained to respond immediately, assess the situation, and mobilize the equipment and people needed to mitigate your situation and reduce the amount of damage. Our technicians are trained and accredited by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification, as well as the American Bio Recovery Association for bio-hazardous cleanup and recovery.

    Working Closely With Clients

    Our SERVPRO teams work closely with clients to explain the process and recovery steps needed. We utilize staging areas either at our location or preferably at the client's site to improve work efficiency. All of your items are cleaned and dried in place where possible, inventoried, and held in the staging area.

    We are prepared to mobilize quickly. From long experience, we have learned that the implementation of water extractors, air movers, and dehumidifiers as promptly as possible reduces the amount of residual damage from moisture. Water weeps into flooring and walls if mitigation steps are not implemented quickly. Even document recovery is improved, although documents cannot returned to their original condition.

    Grand Junction Property, Prepping for Sanitizing and Rebuilding after a Flood, Now What? Call SERVPRO to Streamline the Process

    9/27/2019 (Permalink)

    Groundwater from flooding in the Grand Junction area contains contaminants that SERVPRO can neutralize during storm damage cleanup and restoration.

    Decontamination of Grand Junction Homes Before Reconstruction

    Flood incidents vary in degree of contamination, but it is one of the first aspects that our team must identify about a disaster when we arrive at a Grand Junction home. The family and our team members could be at risk ifcontamination is too widespread and underappreciated, so cleaning and disinfection are vital roles of the work that we must do. Flooding can produce multiple consequences for your home, many of which can be hazardous to your health or the property without the appropriate intervention.

     Knowing whom to call to handle the flood damage in your Grand Junction home is a step towards protecting it during this stressful time. Our SERVPRO team can respond quickly to these emergencies, even in the middle of the night. We have the experience and a line of potent cleaning and disinfection products that can help to protect your property from the contamination threat that flooding can present.
    Even in situations where much of the exposed materials are getting removed and replaced, the use of disinfection agents can still help to protect structural elements. Removing bacterial threats can reduce the need for controlled demolition and later reconstruction. We have many chlorine-based cleansers that have a strong effectiveness against contaminants and microorganisms, but for areas where the harsh cleaner smell can become overwhelming, we have potent botanical-based options as well. Often we can spray an antimicrobial product into standing water to initiate the extermination of unwanted organisms.
    Having qualified and licensed contractors on staff can help to reduce the transition between mitigation and complete reconstruction. Controlled demolition techniques can often follow much of the extraction and drying efforts, which can give our SERVPRO team access to affected materials and structural elements.
    Disinfection is a common element to flooding scenarios, as many of these circumstances stem from natural flooding disasters that can introduce contaminants and microorganisms to the house. Our SERVPRO of Grand Junction team has a renowned line of cleaning products and disinfectants to protect structural elements and reduce health hazards to the occupants of the house. Whenever you need us, you can call us at (970) 241-8181.

    What a Relief to See the SERVPRO Green Vehicle at Your Flooded Grand Junction Home!!

    Why SERVPRO Relies on Advanced Technologies to Fix Flood Damage in Grand Junction

    Flooding can cause a wide range of damages when it affects your Grand Junction home. Common problems after such an incident include heavy soiling in various sections of the property, structural damage caused by water as it penetrates different surfaces, and bad odor. Fixing all the issues restores the property to its preloss state, but it can be a tedious process. We offer professional restoration of flooded properties and rely on various technologies to ease the process.
    Water drives various types of debris and soils into the house during incidents of flood damage in Grand Junction. Common contaminants include raw sewage, chemicals, silt, and mud, so the cleaning effort must address several aspects. Removing heavily porous materials to combat contamination and thoroughly cleaning non-porous materials is necessary. Our SERVPRO technicians bring different carpet removal tools, including hot-melt glue guns, carpet shears, and duckbill knives to every work site affected by flooding facilitating faster removal. We also have various surface scrubbers for expedited cleaning of other surfaces.
    Water permeates different materials and contents within the house. Wood and its derivatives such as particleboards deteriorate from extended exposure to water. Fast extraction and evaluation of the level of penetration can help save affected materials. Our SERVPRO technicians rely on different sophisticated technologies to remove water from your property. We have truck-mounted water extractors, which expedite removal when there are significant amounts of water. We also have various moisture detection equipment, including thermal cameras to check water infiltration levels.
    A bad odor that lingers even after cleaning up your home is a common outcome of flooding incidents. Some contaminants have odor particles that penetrate deep into materials making it hard to remove them through regular cleaning efforts. Using deodorizing agents that penetrate the material just like the odor particles is the best way to control such odors. Our SERVPRO technicians rely on various equipment such as ULV foggers, which atomize deodorizing agents, allowing them to combine with odor particles neutralizing them.
    In case of flooding incidents, call SERVPRO of Grand Junction to assist. You can reach us at (970) 241-8181 any time. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

    When Water Damage in Clifton Makes You Feel Like You are Floating Away

    4/5/2019 (Permalink)

    Call SERVPRO at the first sign of Water Damage to restore your home.

    Why SERVPRO Should Be Your First Call for Clifton Water Damage

    Homeowners in Clifton need reliable assistance when leaks or seepage exposes your property to the risk of permanent damage. If the harm caused by water is ignored a broad range of issues arise. Floors buckle and weaken. Wallboard crumbles and ceilings bulge. A musty smell signals that opportunistic mold spores found the moisture they need to grow and multiply. Avoiding these serious consequences is why our number should be on your short list. 

    Water damage in Clifton can seem like a minor inconvenience in your home. Treating it as such can be a tremendous mistake. Excess water can be devastating to both the structure and the contents of your dwelling. Many structural components are porous and absorb the moisture. They then lose strength and integrity. Personal possessions also become wet, requiring you to face the enormous task of trying to dry them out -- or throw them out.

    Our ability to manage all aspects of residential water damage is why SERVPRO is the answer to your concerns. Our crews can remove the water and the residual moisture from the structure and fixtures in your home quickly and thoroughly. Often we do a pack out of water saturated possessions, cleaning and drying them using special techniques at our production facility. 

    Experienced crew leaders assess the condition of your home, tracing the damage done back to the source. We devise a plan of action that our IICRC-trained crew members carry out without delay. Our service vehicles stock the pumps and extractors needed for standing water and moisture absorbed by floor coverings. Special drying mats suction water from multi-layers of hardwood and subfloors. Thermal imaging helps us locate hidden reserves of water behind structural components, and our training and experience lead us to strategies that removes even trapped water. The skills our workers master for using advanced moisture measuring devices, and specialized water removal systems underscore why SERVPRO delivers superior results. 

    Drying the structure is the next task. Our technicians use their training to determine drying goals using moisture readings. Air movers, heaters, and dehumidifiers do the work, but our experts create and adjust the configuration to get speedy results. A firm grasp of the components that go into the science of drying is why SERVPRO is the industry leader in our community.

    We are committed to returning your water-damaged home to preloss condition, emphasizing why SERVPRO of Grand Junction is the go-to restoration company in our region. Call us day or night at (970) 241-8181.

    Water Removal Services For Your Home In Clifton

    If you are one of the unfortunate people in Clifton who has experienced damage from your dishwasher overflowing, you are not alone. When you are dealing with water leaks from your dishwasher, you must realize how quickly water damage can happen.

    Water removal services for your Clifton home should be done professionally. SERVPRO staff are highly trained and have the equipment needed to clean up any water disaster. We also do work quickly but efficiently so we can avoid additional damage being done to your home by the water sitting too long. With all of this, it is easy to see why SERVPRO is the right choice for your restoration needs.

    The first thing SERVPRO technicians need to do after assessing the damage is getting all the standing water out of your home. We do this with truck-mounted pumps, and we get as much of the water out as possible so that drying times are faster. Once we have removed all we can, industrial fans and dehumidifiers help us to dry your structure back out. If the water did sit for a while, we check for mold damage as well, since it can begin to grow in as little as 24 to 48 hours.

    Water damage from your dishwasher can happen within a couple of hours. If you leave it running, you could come home to find a pool of water on your floor. Your first reaction is to sop up as much of the water as you can, but the longer it sits, the more likely you're to have permanent damage.

    Some common causes of dishwasher leaks include the dishwasher not being level, worn gaskets, a broken door, using the wrong dishwashing soap, or a defective dishwasher tub. You should also regularly check the water lines running to the dishwasher to check for wear.

    SERVPRO of Grand Junction can help you dry your home in Fruita, Mesa, or Loma after a water damage emergency such as this. Give us a call at (970) 241-8181 right away so we can get the water up and dry your structure out before more damage can be done.

    How a Leaking Dishwasher Causes Water Damage to Your Mesa Home

    12/17/2018 (Permalink)

    Malfunctioning dishwashers are one the biggest causes of water damage in homes.

    Water Removal Cleanup for Your Mesa Home

    When your home in Mesa has experienced a water damage emergency from a malfunctioning dishwasher, you could have several gallons of water sitting in your kitchen. The issue needs to be addressed right away to prevent additional damages. Water damages become irreparable to the flooring, cabinets, and your structure itself the longer it sits.  

    Professional water removal services are needed for Mesa right away. Our staff at SERVPRO work quickly to get to your residence as quickly as possible after you contact us. We have the experience and the equipment to dry your home back out and get your life back to normal. It is easy to see in a situation like this why SERVPRO is the first choice in water damage restoration.  

    Since the water emergency happened in your kitchen, SERVPRO technicians inspect the flooring and the subflooring for damage, as well as the surrounding cabinets around the dishwasher. Grouted joints and ceramic tile are usually waterproofed when installed over plywood. However, any cracks make the tile vulnerable to water damage. Many times, the tile is unaffected, but water can penetrate the grouting, creating warping or expansion of the floor. The tiles break apart at the joints and come loose because of this.  

    Plus, in the case of a dishwasher malfunction, the water is likely coming up from underneath the tile, causing the subflooring to swell and the tiles to crack.  We replace or reinstall the tiles once we dry the subfloor and repair it. It might be necessary to dry the floor form the bottom or drill holes into the floor so we can adequately monitor the drying process. We use a nonpenetrating moisture meter to detect moisture underneath the ceramic tiles. The dishwasher itself is also carefully moved so we can dry out underneath it.  

    SERVPRO of Grand Junction understands the effects of water on subflooring and ceramic tiles when your home in Palisade, Redlands, or Mesa has a water damage emergency. Give us a call as soon as you realize there is a problem at (970) 241-8181, so we can restore your home fast.

    Your Mold Infestation Does Not Stand A Chance Against Our Team In Clifton

    11/17/2018 (Permalink)

    Mold damage occurs in Clifton as long as the temperature is between 68 and 86 degrees.

    Why SERVPRO Is The Best Option For Mold Damage Removal In Clifton

    Right now, Clifton residents are winterizing their homes. Replacing insulation for outdoor water taps and sealing minor cracks along the foundation to prevent further damage for example. While both are important, the increasingly cold weather does not eliminate the threat from the mold.

    Mold damage occurs in Clifton as long as the temperature is between 68 and 86 degrees. Since this is the temperature range, most homeowners maintain, SERVPRO understands the need for continued observation and removal.

    Much of the mold infestation we remove remains on surfaces for the most part. As mold grows, the majority of it travels over surfaces like support beams in the attic. The action rapidly extends the size of the colony, but it is easier to clean and dispose of from home.

    If the mold spores are still dry and powdery, our restoration technicians wipe it away with brushes and dry cloths. It is simple to bag and remove from the home. After removing the mold, technicians spray the surfaces with an anti-fungal agent from our extensive inventory to kill any remaining spores that might still exist in corners or tight spots under the roof.

    If the mold is thicker and damp with moisture, SERVPRO technicians can use vacuums with special HEPA filters to remove the mold. As they remove the dry or wet mold, other team members look for the source of moisture that helped the mold to expand and spread. Many of the leaks we find at this time of year are small seeps in the roof or under the eaves that accumulate in a small pool.

    Team members dry these pools and remove any spores with sponges. After removing the water, they spray the area with another anti-fungal agent to reduce the risk of further growth. Our teams can cover and repair minor seeps with caulk, but major cracks in the wall or roof damage require a licensed contractor.

    At SERVPRO of Grand Junction, our task is to clean and remove mold so that you can return to your home in time for the holidays. If you have any problems with mold, or can only detect that distinctive odor many spores exude, call us at (970) 241-8181 today to schedule an inspection.
