Recently SERVPRO® of Denver West has responded to many water damage emergencies. Here are some recent Google reviews from satisfied customers who have experienced water damage:

“We recently had a flood in our basement while we were out of town, and SERVPRO was incredibly helpful. Austin, Justin, Q, Omar, Mona, and Blademere came out late at night to start the cleaning process. Throughout our time working with them, they were highly communicative, timely, and understanding. They explained everything that they were doing, and they helped to prevent further damage to our home. This was an unfortunate situation, but the great workers at SERVPRO made us feel confident in how it was being handled.” Katherine Bowles

“We have had three water damage incidents happen in our basement in the last two years. Cleanup is always quick and professional. Austin and Q handled our cleanup quickly, professionally, and were careful with our stuff.” Christian Jones

“Dave and his crew, Michelle and Alex, were great! Definitely using them again.” Tom Mceniry

An old brown Christmas tree is shown. We restore fire damage for Denver-area homes and businesses.

SERVPRO® of Denver West wants Cherry Creek residents to have a fire-damage-free winter this season. The City of Denver has a great program for recycling old Christmas trees. “Treecycle” is a seasonal program that turns discarded Christmas trees into mulch after the holiday season. Free Treecycle mulch is then given away at the Mulch Giveaway and Compost Sales in May.

Here’s how the program works:

Treecycle Collection: January 4-15

  • Remove all decoration, lights, and the tree stand from your tree
  • The tree has to be a real natural tree with no flocking
  • Set your tree out for collection on one of your scheduled trash collection days between January 3-14, 2022
  • Set trees out by 7 a.m. on your scheduled trash collection day
    • Curb customers: Place your tree in the same location as your trash cart
    • Alley customers: Place your tree behind your property
    • Trees must be placed at least two feet away from collection carts, structures, and other obstacles. Do not place trees inside bags or collection carts.

Water-Damaged Belongings in Parker?

12/7/2021 (Permalink)

Plastic storage bins are shown. We are trusted leaders in water damage restoration in Denver.

For many years, SERVPRO® of Denver West has been restoring water damage for Parker residents and business owners. Here are some tips from the Insurance Information Institute to protect your possessions from water damage:

  • Store off-season and other bulk belongings in waterproof bins, especially in areas where there are plumbing pipes or that are prone to dampness, such as basements and attics.
  • Never store valuables or memorabilia where there is a risk of destruction from water. Water and dampness also bring with it the threat of mold damage.
  • Keep belongings stored on shelving off the floor in basements. In case of water seepage or sewer backup, they’re less likely to get damaged.
  • Keep an up-to-date home inventory. Having a comprehensive list of your possessions will save time, trouble, and stress in case of loss from water damage.

Water Leak in Cherry Creek?

11/29/2021 (Permalink)

A person is getting water from a refrigerator water dispenser. We respond to water damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Denver.

Although I didn’t know it at the time, every time I got a glass of water from the refrigerator water dispenser, water from a cracked water supply line was pooling underneath. The hidden leak kept leaking for about a year. Then one day, I looked down and saw a pool of water around the base of the refrigerator. The water damage caused by this hidden leak was so extensive that all my hardwood floors and subfloors had to be replaced.

SERVPRO® of Denver West knows firsthand the water damage kitchen appliances can cause. Often, water leaks underneath kitchen appliances, and these small water leaks become costly repairs if the leak is not repaired quickly. When we arrive, we will inspect and assess the damage and contact your insurance adjuster.
