Are you Choosing the Right Restoration Company? 

Storms may leave you confused, scared, and frustrated if you’re dealing with damage. You might feel compelled to hire whichever restoration company is recommended by your insurance company. However, you are under no obligation to use your insurer’s choice for disaster restoration services.

Three hallmarks of a reliable and respected restoration company include:

  1.   Experienced, local, and licensed: After a natural disaster or storm, Boulder and Superior Colorado are inundated with out-of-state companies claiming to have restoration experience. It’s best to hire a local company with years of experience in the area and local customer referrals. The company should be fully licensed and certified as proof that they meet the requirements to perform restoration services.
  1.   Outstanding customer service: In a time of intense stress, it’s important to work with a compassionate service provider that will outline your options, help through the restoration process, and coordinate with your insurance company. Start by checking out the company’s customer reviews. SERVPRO has numerous 5-star reviews attesting to our customer care.
  1.   Certified by IICRC: The IICRC is the leading governing body of the restoration industry. An IICRC certification means that the company has completed rigorous training and testing and provides the highest quality of cleaning and restoration work.

Why is Commercial Disaster Restoration Important?

Most businesses are affected by a significant loss of power or water in a disaster. Our commercial and large loss restoration specialists respond to these critical situations quickly to help ensure your business can get back on its feet. No power, no water? Without power, your business is down and running on a generator. You need electricity to keep the machines on or computers running and file your invoices or pay your suppliers. Without power, you’re no longer able to clean rooms, service equipment or offer any other amenities to your guests. A drop in water pressure or low flow? Without water, you can’t properly clean or sanitize your facilities. Without water, the health department can close the facility.

Fire Alarm Placement in Colorado

3/9/2022 (Permalink)

smoke alarm protecting home from fire damage in superior CO A smoke alarm can protect your home from fire damage in Boulder County, CO.

Smoke alarms are a useful tool to protect your belongings and loved ones safe by alerting you in case of a fire. 

The National Fire Protection Agency recommends that fire alarms are installed on every floor of a home or business and inside and outside of every bedroom or place where someone sleeps. Alarms should be mounted in the middle of a ceiling, but if you are unable to mount your alarm on the ceiling, they can be mounted on the wall.  If wall mounted, place the alarm within 12 inches of the ceiling and at least three feet from corners. 

Keep smoke alarms away from:

  • Fans and air ducts, they can blow smoke away and cause the alarm to not respond appropriately
  • The shower or kitchen stove, the heat/steam/smoke from these can cause a smoke alarm to sound when there is not actually any danger. 

If your smoke alarm sounds, have a safety plan in place so that your family knows what to do. Before going through any closed doors, check to see if the doorknob is hot, and when moving through an area with a fire, crawl rather than walk to avoid smoke inhalation. If you are able to safely exit an area without help, do so before calling 911.  

If you or someone you know is in need of assistance with smoke damage or help with cleaning after a fire, call SERVPRO of Greater Boulder at (303)494-2000.

Maintenance of Smoke Alarms in Boulder CO

3/8/2022 (Permalink)

Smoke alarm protects fire damage in Boulder CO A smoke alarm should be maintained to protect your home or business from fire damage.

How many times have you had a smoke  alarm that’s beeping and you just silence it with the push of a button rather than dealing with the issue?

A fire can spark up without warning in a home or place of business and has the potential to destroy countless memories and years of work. A smoke alarm is a simple tool to help keep your things safe from a fire and quickly alert you to its presence. It’s important to keep your smoke alarms in good repair so that they can do their job. Here are a few tips about maintenance of a smoke alarm. 

The National Fire Protection Association recommends that each smoke alarm is tested once a month to make sure that they are working properly. Batteries should be replaced every six months and a fire alarm with a low battery “chirp” should never be ignored or silenced. A smoke alarm should be replaced at least every ten years or earlier.
