Thunderstorms and Hail in Commerce City, Oh My!

Severe weather happens in Commerce City. Tornadoes, thunderstorms, and snow all can cause structural damage to homes and businesses in the area. SERVPRO® of Commerce City responds to storm damage emergencies every year. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), hailstones are classified by comparing them to a known object. Usually, hailstorms drop a mix of different size hailstones, and only the really large ones pose any serious risk to people when they’re caught out in a storm. Here are some hailstone measurements from the NOAA:

  • Pea = 1/4 inch diameter
  • Mothball = 1/2 inch diameter
  • Penny = 3/4 inch diameter
  • Nickel = 7/8 inch
  • Quarter = 1 inch — hail quarter size or larger is considered severe
  • Ping-Pong Ball = 1 1/2 inch
  • Golf Ball = 1 3/4 inches
  • Tennis Ball = 2 1/2 inches
  • Baseball = 2 3/4 inches
  • Tea cup = 3 inches

Microwave Fire in Henderson?

A microwave oven is shown in a kitchen. Don’t get fried by your microwave oven in Adams County!

Microwave Safety Tips for Henderson

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), if you have a fire in a microwave, leave the door closed, turn off the oven and unplug it from the wall. If the fire does not go out, get outside and call the fire department.  SERVPRO® of Commerce City sees all kinds of fire damage each year and offer these microwave safety tips from the NFPA:

Microwave Safety Tips

  • PURCHASE a microwave oven that is listed by a qualified testing laboratory. Make sure to complete and return the product registration card. This way the manufacturer can reach you if there is a recall on the product.
  • PLUG the microwave oven directly into the wall outlet — never use an extension cord.
  • MAKE sure the microwave oven is at a safe height, within easy reach of all users.
  • OPEN food slowly, away from the face. Hot steam or the food itself can cause burns.
  • FOOD heats unevenly in microwave ovens. Stir and test before eating or giving to children.
  • NEVER heat a baby bottle in the microwave. Since a microwave oven heats unevenly, it can create hot pockets, leading to burns. Warm a bottle in a bowl of warm — not hot or boiling — water, or by running it under the tap.

  • Stock food and water. Store non-perishable food and water supplies for at least two weeks. Plan to use coolers and ice to extend food refrigeration and keep a thermometer in the fridge, freezer, or cooler to monitor the food temperature.
  • Know and plan for your personal and medical electrical needs. Take an inventory of your electrical needs. Consider both backup and non-power alternatives for lighting, communication, medical devices, and refrigerated medicine, cooking, garage doors, locks, and elevators. Discuss a plan with your primary care or medical device providers for your medical needs.
  • Prepare a pet emergency kit for your companion animals.
  • Plan for heating or cooling your home. Use methods such as sealing around windows to insulate your home. If the weather is very hot or very cold, plan to go to a location with air conditioning or with heat. Never use a generator, outdoor stoves, or heaters indoors.

Mold Problem in Commerce City Office?

7/16/2021 (Permalink)

Mold is shown growing inside a cabinet underneath a sink. We mitigate and remediate mold for Adams County businesses.

Mold Mitigation and Remediation for Commerce City Businesses

When I came into work on Monday, there was a musty smell I could not place. I finally tracked it down to underneath the sink in the breakroom. When I opened the cabinet, a waft of musty odor hit me. When I looked inside, I saw mold had colonized inside the cabinet. There was a small leak in the plumbing that probably was encouraging the mold to grow.

I called SERVPRO® of Commerce City and they sent a team out quickly to inspect and assess the damage. They have been mitigating and remediating commercial mold damage for years. First, they identified the source of the moisture as a loose pipe fitting under the sink and repaired the leak. Then they contained the area and began the remediation process. They explained that because mold is always present in the Earth’s atmosphere, it can never be 100 percent eradicated, but it can be mitigated and remediated.
