The chimney of an old home is shown with smoke coming out of it. We are leaders in fire damage restoration in Denver.

SERVPRO® of Denver North wants everyone in Whittier to be safe from fire damage this winter season. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), more fires occur during December, January, and February than at any other time of the year. Here are some heating equipment safety tips from the NFPA:

Fireplace Safety

  • Keep anything that can burn at least three feet away from the fireplace
  • Have a three-foot “kid-free zone” around open fires and space heaters
  • Have heating equipment and chimneys cleaned and inspected every year by a qualified professional
  • Make sure the fireplace has a sturdy screen to stop sparks from flying into the room. Ashes should be cool before putting them in a metal container. Keep the container a safe distance away from your home.
  • Test smoke alarms at least once a month

Wood Stove Safety

  • Install wood-burning stoves following the manufacturer’s instructions or have a professional do the installation. All fuel-burning equipment should be vented to the outside to avoid carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.

A fire alarm box is shown. We are trusted leaders in fire damage restoration in Denver.

More fires happen during the winter months than at any other time of the year in Downtown Denver. SERVPRO® of Denver North offers these fire safety tips from the American Red Cross:

  • Know how to operate a fire extinguisher safely
  • Remember to GET OUT, STAY OUT and CALL 9-1-1 or your local emergency phone number
  • Yell "Fire!" several times and go outside right away. If you live in a building with elevators, use the stairs. Leave all your things where they are and save yourself.
  • If closed doors or handles are warm or smoke blocks your primary escape route, use your second way out. Never open doors that are warm to the touch.
  • If you must escape through smoke, get low and go under the smoke to your exit. Close doors behind you.
  • If smoke, heat, or flames block your exit routes, stay in the room with doors closed. Place a wet towel under the door and call the fire department or 9-1-1. Open a window and wave a brightly colored cloth or flashlight to signal for help.
  • Once you are outside, go to your meeting place and then send one person to call the fire department. If you cannot get to your meeting place, follow your family emergency communication plan.

Damaged Pipes in Park Hill?

11/29/2021 (Permalink)

Old corroded cast iron pipes are shown. We are leaders in water restoration in Denver.

Park Hill is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Denver, and older homes carry the challenges of old cast iron or galvanized plumbing pipes. Over time, these types of pipes will corrode and fail. SERVPRO® of Denver North has been restoring water damage in Denver for many years.

Damaged Pipes

Check for cracks, bulges, water stains, and other signs of moisture on your ceiling or floors. If your water bill is increasing, you may have hidden water damage. Check crawl spaces, cabinets, and attics for signs of water damage, and insulate your pipes before winter begins.

To determine if you have hidden water damage, the Environmental Protection Agency suggests:

  • A good method to check for leaks is to examine your winter water use. A family of four likely has a serious leak problem if its winter water use exceeds 12,000 gallons per month.
  • Check your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter does not read exactly the same, you probably have a leak.

Call Us Today!

When your Park Hill home or business has a water damage emergency, SERVPRO® of Denver North has a team of highly trained technicians ready to assist you. Call us today at 720-408-9313.

Flooded Floor in Denver Business?

11/22/2021 (Permalink)

A fire sprinkler is shown mounted on a ceiling. We are leaders in commercial water restoration in Downtown Denver.

We were having a routine inspection of our building and offices. Everything was going as expected until one of the overhead sprinklers activated and began dumping water all over the desks and equipment directly below it. Yikes! The water was eventually shut off, but in the short time it took to locate and close the water shut-off valve, the malfunctioning sprinkler released about two hundred gallons of water into the room.

We called SERVPRO® of Denver North, and they sent out a team right away. They moved and dried all of the office furniture and used industrial-grade water extraction equipment to remove the water quickly. After that, they set up powerful air movers and blowers to dry the area. The drying process was monitored and documented. The drying process was followed by cleaning and deodorizing. Now our office looks and smells great!

Our technicians are trained and certified to handle any size of commercial water loss.

  • Water Damage Restoration Technician
  • Applied Structural Drying Technician
  • Odor Control Technician
  • Upholstery and Fabric Cleaning Technician

Tornado in Denver?

11/15/2021 (Permalink)

A “tornado shelter” sign is shown guiding building residents to safety. We are leaders in storm damage restoration in Downtown Denver.

Colorado ranks ninth in the country for tornado activity, averaging forty-seven tornadoes each year. Although most tornadoes happen in the spring and summer months, October and November see a spike in tornado activity each year. SERVPRO® of Denver North responds to storm damage emergencies throughout the year and offer these tips on staying safe during a tornado from the American Red Cross:

  • Identify a safe place in your home where household members and pets will gather during a tornado: a basement, storm cellar, or an interior room on the lowest floor with no windows
  • In a high-rise building, pick a hallway in the center of the building. You may not have enough time to go to the lowest floor. 
  • In a mobile home, choose a safe place in a nearby sturdy building. If your mobile home park has a designated shelter, make it your safe place. No mobile home, however it is configured, is safe in a tornado.
  • tornado watchmeans a tornado is possible
  • tornado warningmeans a tornado is already occurring or will occur soon. Go to your safe place immediately.

  • Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer, or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child.
