About 911 Restoration of Denver
Meet the Owner:
Chris Paillette’s goal in opening 911 Restoration of Denver is simple: to bring a high level of skill, knowledge, and empathy to every loss and turn an unfortunate situation into a fresh start for every homeowner.
Chris entered the water and fire mitigation business after noticing the need for a higher level of training, education, and professionalism within the industry.
With more than 30 years of experience, Chris is confident in his ability to offer the best and quickest remediation solution to homeowners.
“It’s easy to feel overwhelmed at the sight of disaster. That’s why you need someone to show you how the restoration process can, and will, definitely take place.”
Unlike other technicians who often leave their clients in the dark, Chris thrives in communicating the details of his restoration plan.
“I’m passionate about my profession: plumbing and restoration, which I understand isn’t the most exciting subject there is,” Chris laughs, then adds: “so I really appreciate the chance to elaborate upon on my process!”
Water Damage Prevention Tips
In addition to being an IICRC Certified Restorer, Chris Paillette is also a Licensed Master Plumber. “A fair amount of water damage incidents can be traced to improperly laid or neglected pipes,” so here are two tips from our water damage experts to keep your pipes healthy year-round:
Avoid using chemical to unclog a drain.It’s frustrating to prepare dinner with a drain that refuses to cooperate.
Every plumber understand the temptation to use drain cleaners to quickly dissolve the grease that’s been clogging your sink drain. But it’s not worth it, according to Chris.
“Drain cleaners are highly corrosive, which can eat away at your pipes,” he explains. “They are also highly toxic, and their residue is hard to remove. Using them on your kitchen sink really puts your health at risk.” Grab a plunger or a snake instead! Reduce your water pressure
High water pressure is a boon whenever you shower, but it actually stresses your pipes and increase the likelihood of a leak. Especially at the joints.
“Installing a low-flow shower head won’t help,” Chris dispels the common myth. “It only affects the amount of water coming out of the shower head, not the actual pressure through the pipes.”
Measure your water pressure with a hose bib gauge by attaching it to an outside spigot. If the gauge registers above 40 to 85 psi, you should call a plumber to reduce the pressure.
Prevention is the Best Solution for Flooding
“Everyone knows not to pour fat down the drain, but not everyone understands its importance.” Chris explains why he takes his time in explaining his process to homeowners.
“Sometimes people ask me why I’m giving away trade secrets,” he reflects upon the question and chuckles.
“I guess I don’t think about it that way. I’m a professional, and it is part of my job to inform my clients.
I want to make their tomorrow better and fresher than today.”
