How Do I Know If My Water Heater Needs Maintenance in Englewood?

6/7/2022 (Permalink)

A water heater has a leaking drip pan. We respond to water damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Denver!

Water heaters require routine professional maintenance to keep them operating optimally. Our local team in Denver West offers these water heater maintenance tips for Evansville from the National Board of Pressure Vessel Inspectors:

Use a qualified service professional for the following:

  • Burners should be cleaned once a year for gas and oil-fired water heaters. Have the service professional inspect flues and vents for cracks or loose connections that could leak deadly exhaust gases.
     
  • Have a qualified plumber replace your anode rod once every two to five years
     
  • The service life of a temperature and pressure (T & P) valve is usually three years. Even if a T & P valve looks fine from the outside, manufacturers recommend they be removed and visually inspected for accumulations of corrosion deposits
  • Call a qualified plumber if your water tank is leaking
    • If the T & P valve is discharging water or steam, the ONLY safe intervention is to remove the heat source by cutting off its fuel, if you can. For an electric heater, trip the circuit breaker; for a gas heater, shut off the gas.
    • If your water heater overheats, call a qualified plumber and allow the water heater to cool naturally. Never try to relieve the pressure yourself. Never add cool water to the tank, and never try to cool it by spraying it with a hose.

Downed Tree in Parker?

5/17/2022 (Permalink)

A tree is uprooted after a storm. Our technicians are on call 24-hours a day in Denver.

Our team in Denver West has been responding to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Parker for many years. Our fast emergency response time combined with a highly trained team means that your storm damage will be repaired quickly and efficiently. Fallen trees are an example of storm damage you may experience. The Colorado State Forest Service offers this advice for keeping trees healthy and assessing storm damage:

  • Are major limbs broken? If larger limbs are broken, it will be harder for the tree to recover from the damage. When large limbs are broken or hanging, or when high climbing or overhead chainsaw work is needed, it’s best to hire or consult a professional.
  • Don’t top your trees! When trees are topped, all of their branches are cut back to stubs on the mistaken assumption that reducing the length of branches will help avoid breakage in future storms. While storm damage may not always allow for ideal pruning cuts, professional arborists say that topping is one of the worst things you can do to your trees.

Call Us!

When your commercial business or home in Parker has tree damage from a storm, our Denver West team is Here to Help. ® We offer a full range of storm damage restoration services when needed to return your property to pre-damage condition. Call us today at 303-576-6868.

Outdoor Propane Heater Safety Guidelines for Aurora Businesses?

5/9/2022 (Permalink)

An outdoor propane heat lamp is shown. We restore fire damage 24-hours a day in the Denver area.

Businesses use propane patio heaters so people can spend more time outdoors on chilly days in Aurora. Our team in Denver West offers this information from the National Fire Protection Association for outdoor propane heaters safety:

Propane Patio Heaters

Propane heaters need to be used in accordance with their listing and manufacturer instructions. Prior to using a propane heater, refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for information such as the following:

  • Necessary clearances from the heating element
  • Proper ventilation required
  • Proper inspection, cleaning, and maintenance procedures
  • Lighting and shutdown procedures
  • Where the heater can and cannot be used (for example, heaters cannot be used in enclosed locations)
  • Procedures for properly storing heaters

The restrictions for using propane heaters are also based on the occupancy in which they are used. For example, in assembly occupancies, such as restaurants with fifty or more occupants, heaters cannot be located within five ft (1.5 m) of the exits. Regardless of where they are used, if a heater uses propane hoses, they must be as short as possible, visible, and protected from damage.

For patio heaters that use integral LP-Gas containers with a capacity greater than 1.08 lb (0.49 kg), NFPA 1 requires that the heaters be listed by an organization acceptable to the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ).

A fast response is necessary to avoid further damage and more time-consuming repairs when you have fire damage. Our Denver West team typically arrives onsite within four hours of your call. Call us today at 303-576-6868.
