Waco, TX (PRWEB) July 30, 2013 - Home fires can be devastating and unexpected. There are ways to prevent and prepare for a home fire and, in an unfortunate situation, restore a home following the devastation of a fire. Rainbow International® has prepared life-saving tips for dealing with house fires.
The most important part of preventing house fires is having functional and updated smoke detectors installed in a home. In addition, installing sprinklers throughout the home is relatively inexpensive and can quickly save a house from a fire. It is also important for homeowners to be aware of areas surrounding electrical outlets and the correct use of appliances.
The first step is fire prevention, but preparation is vital if a house fire occurs. According to fire safety experts, every room in the house should have two escape routes, including one that does not rely on an indoor staircase. Families should secure the home and lay out fire evacuation plans for each room. It is also important for families, especially those with young children, to establish a meeting spot far enough away from the house should a fire occur.
"Communication between family members is crucial," Rob White, vice president of Rainbow International, said. "Parents need to explain the importance of fire safety and what to do in an emergency situation so that children are safe and prepared."
In the distressing case of a house fire, homeowners should seek a company specializing in fire restoration that they trust. A home is a place of family memories and sentimental value and should be entrusted to someone who wants to restore it as accurately as the homeowner. Experts at Rainbow International go through extensive fire restoration training giving them the skills needed to professionally and pristinely restore a home.
