Commercial Cleaning Services in Thornton?

A group of cleaners are wearing personal protective equipment. Our commercial deep services keep your Brighton business looking its best.

Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned in Thornton

Our Thornton offices were closed for almost a year, and we were finally coming back to work. I walked through the building and realized that it needed a deep cleaning from the ceilings down to the floors. I also knew that it would be important to establish more vigorous cleaning protocols to assure the employees that we were doing all that we could to keep the environment pathogen-free.

SERVPRO® of North Thornton/Brighton came out and told us about their Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned defensive cleaning program that is designed to help businesses reopen safely across the county.  They provided a free assessment of our needs that took into consideration the size of the business and the type of space. They looked at high-frequency touchpoints, foot traffic, and congestion points and came up with a cleaning plan we agreed on.

They deep cleaned and sanitized the offices, and we established a protocol for further cleanings. Now our employees and customers are reassured that we are taking the steps needed to keep the workspace at the highest level of cleanliness.

Commercial Restoration Services in Thornton?

A clean warehouse is shown with many shelves filled with boxes of inventory. We are commercial restoration leaders Brighton businesses trust!

Warehouse underwater in Thornton.

You would never know by looking at this picture that this warehouse was flooded recently. That’s because we called the professionals at SERVPRO® of North Thornton/Brighton. The team arrived quickly and used an infrared camera and other moisture detection and measurement equipment to identify the location and source of the water intrusion and the water’s saturation levels. They conducted an assessment of the damage and contacted our insurance adjuster.

It was amazing how quickly and systematically they moved through the warehouse. After they extracted the water, they set up powerful air movers and blowers and documented the drying process to ensure the area was returned to normal moisture levels. They repaired the broken supply line and cleaned and deodorized the area. We were back to normal operations the same day!

Broken Water Meter in Thornton?

A water meter is shown. We respond to water damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Thornton.

Water Meter Mystery

SERVPRO® of North Thornton/Brighton responds to water damage emergencies seven days a week in Thornton, and many of these were small, hidden leaks that turned into bigger problems. The Environmental Protection Agency helps homeowners identify and fix leaks to help conserve water. Here are some tips from the EPA for determining if you have a water leak in your home:

Read your water meter

Find your water meter, which is usually near the curb in front of your home but can be inside your home (e.g., in the basement) in cold climates. Use a screwdriver to remove the lid on your meter, which is heavy and usually marked “water.” Now that you’ve found the meter, take a reading during a period when no water is being used. If the meter does not read exactly the same after two hours, you probably have a leak.

Check your utility bill

A place to start is to examine your utility bill for January or February. It’s likely that a family of four has a serious leak problem if its winter water use exceeds 12,000 gallons per month. You can also look for spikes—is your water use a lot higher this month than it was last month?

“Can't say enough good things about Brian and his team. We had a burst pipe that we didn't realize that flooded our kitchen. Brian came over immediately after we mopped up the floors and put in de-humidifiers and fans to contain the damage. We crossed our fingers we didn't damage any drywall or cabinets. Thankfully his dryers worked, and he was honest with us and we didn't have to replace anything! Highly recommend these guys!” Alisa M in Brighton

Flooded Kitchen in Thorncreek?

3/15/2021 (Permalink)

A mother and daughter are unloading a dishwasher. We restore water damage 24-hours a day in Brighton!

It was the dishwasher.

I usually run the dishwasher before turning in for the night, but because we had relatives staying with us, I turned it on after dinner. Later that evening, I came into the kitchen to get the coffee ready for the morning and walked onto a flooded kitchen floor. There was about an inch of water covering the whole floor and part of the back hallway. My dishwasher was the culprit. The supply line gasket cracked and caused the water line to fail.

My neighbor used SERVPRO® of North Thornton/Brighton when her basement flooded, so I called them and was pleasantly surprised to speak to a live person so late at night. They asked me some questions over the phone and arrived on site very quickly.

The technicians conducted an assessment of the damage, removed the kitchen furniture, and extracted the water. Then they set up air movers and air blowers to remove the excess moisture from the room. They documented the entire drying process and returned my kitchen to pre-water damage condition in no time!

Disaster Safety Tips for Thornton Dogs and Cats?

3/10/2021 (Permalink)

A dog and cat are shown outside in the snow wearing winter hats. Our pets need help staying safe when a disaster strikes in Brighton.

Pet Safety Tips for Disaster Situations

Being prepared for a disaster is always a good thing, and during a severe storm or a major weather event, our pets will rely even more heavily on us for their safety. SERVPRO® of North Thornton/Brighton responds to storm damage emergencies throughout the year in Thornton and on average, March is the snowiest month in Denver. Here are some winter pet safety tips from the Humane Society of the United States:

  • If pets cannot come indoors, make sure they are protected by a dry, draft-free enclosure large enough to allow them to sit and lie down, but small enough to hold in the pet’s body heat. Raise the floor a few inches off the ground and cover it with cedar shavings or straw. Turn the enclosure away from the wind and cover the doorway with waterproof burlap or heavy plastic.
  • Salt and other chemicals used to melt snow and ice can irritate a pet’s paws. Wipe their paws with a damp towel before your pet licks them and irritates their mouth.
  • Antifreeze is a deadly poison. Wipe up spills and store antifreeze out of reach.

Call Us Today!

SERVPRO® of North Thornton/Brighton is on-call and ready to respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day. Call us today at 720-223-8888. We’ll restore your storm-damaged property in Thornton, “Like it never even happened.”

Fire Extinguisher Safety Tips for Thornton Homeowners?

2/22/2021 (Permalink)

A fires extinguisher is shown. We are leaders in the fire restoration industry in Brighton!

Fire Extinguisher Safety

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), a fire extinguisher may be useful when dealing with a fire in a small area, but only if everyone is out of the home, the fire department has been called, and the room is not filled with smoke. SERVPRO® of North Thornton/Brighton often arrives to the scene of a fire damage emergency when the first responders are completing their job, and we see the damage even a small fire can do. Here are some fire extinguisher safety tips from the NFPA:

  • To operate a fire extinguisher, remember the word PASS:
    • Pull the pin. Hold the extinguisher with the nozzle pointing away from you and release the locking mechanism.
    • Aim low. Point the extinguisher at the base of the fire.
    • Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly.
    • Sweep the nozzle from side-to-side.
  • For the home, select a multi-purpose extinguisher (can be used on all types of home fires) that is large enough to put out a small fire, but not so heavy as to be difficult to handle.
