  • Consult – Every business is different, which is why you’ll be assigned a Cleaning Protocol Consultant who understands your business and will create a cleaning program to meet your specific needs. This program will be developed based on your business type, size of space, amount of high frequency touch points, foot traffic and congestion points.
  • Clean – Based on your specific business needs, your location will undergo a thorough, deep clean, using exclusive cleaning products, according to protocols set forth by the CDC. Our employees have years of experience, and we will go beyond the scope of work that regular janitorial staff perform. Cleanup procedures generally include cleaning of porous and non-porous surfaces, disinfecting of non-porous surfaces, cleaning and disinfecting of equipment, tools, and/or supplies used for cleanup process, and disposal of hazardous materials.  In the event of a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 event, we will be there cleaning within 24 hours to ensure you get back to business as quickly as possible. 
  • Certify - Once your business location has been Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned, you will gain access to proprietary signage, digital emblems, and other collateral that communicates that you’ve selected a higher standard of clean available to help protect your employees and customers. And because we add the day, month, and year to that proprietary stamp of clean, your guests will know that not only did you choose Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned, but that your location is being cleaned regularly at this standard.

It wasn’t a typical morning in Devil’s Thumb. I woke up, went downstairs to start the coffee and stepped into a small shallow lake of water in my kitchen. Evidently while we were asleep, my dishwasher decided to break down and flood my first floor. The water was left standing all night and it had time to go beneath the kitchen linoleum, into the subfloor and travel into my family room and absorb into my carpet and carpet pad and subfloor and even seeped behind my baseboards into the drywall.

Storms Causing Water Leaks in Ara?

5/28/2020 (Permalink)

A pot sits on a windowsill to catch drips of rainwater. We provide water damage restoration services in Boulder.

Storms Bring Water Damage

Water intrusion caused by a window leaking during a rainstorm can happen with older windows, but many times it is not the window leaking that is the source of the water. It may be due to roof damage causing the water to seep in around the window frame. Water damage, if left unmitigated, can become a costly repair as the water can seep into drywall and the framing structures hidden behind the walls. SERVPRO® of Greater Boulder wants the residents of Ara to know that we have years of experience dealing with water damage and we are Here to Help. ®

Specialized Dehumidification and Drying Equipment

After the water has been extracted and removed from the damaged area, we will begin the drying and dehumidification process. We use specialized equipment and industrial-grade dehumidifiers to help prevent water damage such as swelling and warping of floors, walls and furniture. Using room measurements, temperature and relative humidity readings, we will determine the type of equipment to use and will track the drying process using specialized monitoring equipment.

The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic has reminded all of us how important it is to properly clean the surfaces and objects we handle.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), cleaning and disinfecting are separate processes. Cleaning removes dirt, oils and most surface germs. Disinfection kills (or deactivates) remaining germs.

SERVPRO® of Greater Boulder is qualified to clean and properly apply disinfectants according to the CDC’s protocols.

We have numerous years of experience in cleaning and disinfecting contaminants, including infectious bio hazards. We have specific training and the appropriate equipment to go beyond standard cleaning services.  More recently, our professionals received additional training certifications regarding COVID-19 decontamination.

Many SERVPRO cleaning products include products the CDC recommends for other coronaviruses (such as SARS).  The EPA has just added three more of our branded disinfectants to their approved product list!  Although there has not yet been product testing against COVID-19, we can assure our community in and around Boulder that we follow all of the CDC-recommended guidelines.

We clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces such as:

  • Counters and tabletops
  • Doorknobs
  • Light switches
  • Toilets & other bathroom fixtures (faucets, handrails, tubs & showers)
  • Tablets, keyboards & other office (home or business) equipment

We also clean soft surfaces such as:

  • Carpets & rugs
  • Upholstered furniture
  • Exercise mats

The CDC recommends cleaning and disinfecting the following areas:

  • Kitchen & dining areas
  • Bathrooms
  • Schools, classrooms, conference rooms
  • Retail spaces, including
    • Sales counters
    • Racks, shelves
    • Hand-rails & elevator cars
    • Flooring, regardless of material
    • Water fountains
    • Carpets, rugs
    • Fitness equipment
    • Playground equipment
