A fire-damaged bedroom is shown. We are trusted leaders in fire damage restoration in Jefferson County.

According to a report published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), during a five-year period, United States fire departments responded to an estimated 353,100 home fires per year between 2014 and 2018.

SERVPRO® of Golden/Wheat Ridge/Evergreen offers these tips from our website on things you can do to stay safe while waiting for help to arrive:

After any fire damage situation, your safety should be the primary focus.

  • Stay in the house only if it safe
  • Electrical and "slip and fall" hazards are some of the most prevalent concerns
  • Only do activities that are safe for you to perform
  • Wet materials can be very heavy

What To Do After A Fire

  • Limit movement in the home to prevent soot particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpets
  • Keep hands clean so as not to further soil upholstery, walls, and woodwork
  • Place clean towels or old linens on rugs, upholstery, and carpet traffic areas
  • If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator and prop doors open
  • Clean and protect chrome with a light coating of petroleum jelly or oil
  • Wash houseplants on both sides of leaves
  • Change the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) filter
  • Tape double layers of cheesecloth over air registers
