Why SERVPRO? Our Multidisciplinary Approach Is the Answer to Your Montrose Disaster
SERVPRO wants to help you through any and all losses in your Montrose area.
Streamlined disaster mitigation and remediation services for our Montrose residential customers is part of our overarching mission. Recognizing that changing leadership and crews in mid-recovery is counterproductive, we support our crew chiefs as they obtain certification from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in multiple specialties. A disaster rarely confines its effects to just one of our cornerstones. Expect our crews to respond to water, fire, mold, and storm damage losses with equal confidence and skill.
Homeowners can be caught by surprise by the incredibly destructive effects of water when it saturates the building materials and contents of their houses. Monstrose water damage is also a significant player in fire, mold, and storm restoration projects. Rest assured that our professional crews are fully prepared to mitigate and remediate water losses using industry best practices. We are prepared both by IICRC training and many years of combined experience on water restoration projects.
When our Water Damage Restoration Technicians (WRT) and crew lead arrive, a thorough assessment of the damage precedes a comprehensive project plan. Our employees implement the plan immediately as all the equipment needed for water removal and structural drying accompanies the crew in our SERVPRO signature green vehicles. Pumps and truck-mounted extractors can remove fluids even if your home’s electricity is temporarily unavailable. We use gas or onboard generators for power if necessary.
Removing as much liquid as possible shortens and makes more efficient both the drying equipment and procedures we employ to complete your water damage restoration job. Initially and periodically, our crew takes moisture measurements of structural components to determine drying goals. We meet the goals by designing an effective drying perimeter of air movers and heaters, driving absorbed water out of structures into the air as vapor. Commercial-grade dehumidifiers capture that vapor for disposal outside of your now dry home.
Our community features many expansive homes and hideaways, full of one of a kind furnishings, artwork, and other items vulnerable to the effects of fire damage in Montrose. If you fear the mitigation and remediation process almost more than the fire itself, rest assured we have substantial experience in removing the contents of a home to a secure space for further evaluation and restoration.
The SERVPRO Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS) provides a precise and secure method for cataloging and packing up articles from paintings, artifacts, household goods, and furniture, and personal items of all kinds. We document the pack-out with lists, digital photography, and barcoding. We work with your insurance carrier to determine whether items should go to our production facility or be transferred to the custody of restoration specialists who can offer the unique services needed.
Items stored at our production facility are in a climate-controlled and protected area. Our technicians assess the condition of each article and develop a plan for cleaning, drying, disinfecting, and restoring them to preloss condition. Deodorization is a priority, as all the other restoration techniques we complete pale in importance and effect if your belongings still smell like smoke.
Once your house is soot and smoky smell free, cleaned, and sanitized, we reverse the pack-out, returning your possessions. Throughout the project, we are completely transparent in our communications, committed to making it “Like it never even happened.”
The semiarid climate of our area might seem inhospitable to mold damage in Montrose. The fact is, only a small amount of water, and a short time is required to start a mold spore growing. Spores are always in the air or on surfaces, outdoors and indoors. Just a few drops of water from an unnoticed leak or even the high humidity of an unvented bathroom can support mold growth.
Mold emits a distinctive, musty odor, often the only signal you have that it is growing behind a wall or under a cabinet. Although it is unconfirmed that fungi cause illness in humans, mold and its mycotoxins can be irritating to individuals with a sensitivity or allergy. Mold needs an organic source of nourishment, easily found in your home. Wood, some insulation, drywall, ceiling tiles, and many other structural components and fixtures offer mold a food source.
If you even suspect mold invite our mold remediation team to evaluate the situation. Mold can weaken building materials and downgrade air quality. We use the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocol to contain and remove the mold, following up with an EPA-registered antimicrobial treatment to inhibit future growth. Then we consult with you for ongoing moisture control so that spores fail to absorb water and grow. Our efforts do not eliminate mold spores but address the conditions that allow then to multiply.
Extreme and unexpected weather patterns like those that recently resulted in a June avalanche can cause headaches for Montrose residents. Severe storms are on the uptick all over the country, and the High Plains of Colorado are no exception. Although it is impossible to predict when high winds, precipitation, or lightning could damage your home, it is feasible to plan how you can recover quickly from a loss.
The team at SERVPRO is your reliable partner if a storm brings destruction. Our managers and technicians are trained and experienced in responding to the unfortunate surprises you can experience because of severe weather. Exterior structural components like roofs and siding lose their ability to protect your home when wind pulls them off, or lightning set them on fire. We have experience in a wide range of strategies to halt the damage storms bring.
We can help with everything from securing exterior damage to mitigating water damage to cleaning up fire residues and more. Have confidence in the outstanding workforce and state of the art equipment we assembled for the benefit of our customers. Our response is fast, and our skills are sure, and reaching out to help members of our community is our guiding principle.
SERVPRO of Montrose / Telluride is always prepared to help our customers thrive after we help them overcome disasters that damage hearth and home. Do not delay your call (970) 240-6970 to and we promise to respond as soon as possible.
