Fire can make your life easier. But then again, it can turn it into a nightmare within seconds. It can gut down and raze your valuables when you least expect. It can raze an empire you took ages to build. But you do not have to be worried about it. After all, it is easy to prevent fire, and even control it. But just how do you go about fire prevention and control? Do you take into account the obvious fire extinguisher tips or there is something more? Read on to find out.

Your paint

Your paint can make fire spread within minutes. That is, if the paint you have on your walls and furniture is flammable and oil based. The home improvement market is awash with inflammable paints. They may be a little more expensive than regular paint but they can go a long way to control fire.


Forget about smoke detectors. Consider gas detectors. Better yet, consider two in one detectors. That is, a smoke and gas detector in one device. Then have an expert around to help you decide on where the detector should be placed. Keep in mind that you may need to install more than two detectors in your home, especially if your house is big.

Your children

Do they know what to do in the event of a fire breakout? Can they help themselves? Chances are, they can’t. Teach them basic survival skills, like how to put out a fire, fire types and how to use the extinguisher. You won’t worry so much about home fires the next time you leave them alone. In case fire happens, it is very important to call a fire department fast. Then, call your damage restoration service for fast cleanup that will prevent further damage.
