Rockville, MD (PRWEB) December 27, 2007 -
CapitalCityRestorations.com has had a very successful business for over 25 years providing professional remediation in Maryland, Washington D.C. and Virginia but during this holiday season, they are asking the public to do all they can to prevent needing their services. The reason is that they see far too many tragedies that could have been prevented when fire is responsible for loss of life and property. Then it is Capital City Restorations that is called upon to try to restore what the damage has done. Even though fire damage can be devastating, fire restoration and smoke restoration can salvage what was not destroyed by the fire, smoke and soot.
Company president, Mark Wilson, has said: "Our professional team is made up of more than just damage consultants; we are first and foremost individuals with families, friends, pets and property that mean the world to us. We never forget the human element when we are called in to clean up after a fire has changed the victims' lives forever." He went on to say, "We can never give back what our customers have lost but we are very sympathetic to their needs and are completely committed to restoring their property to its former condition after a tragic fire has occurred. It breaks our heart to see the losses suffered that may have been prevented if only they had practiced fire safety."
For this reason, CapitalCityRestorations.com would like to offer their heartfelt wishes for a safe and happy holiday season by sharing the following fire prevention tips…
- Never leave a burning candle unattended where it could accidentally catch other items on fire.
- Always turn off Christmas tree lights and other Christmas lights before leaving the house or going to bed; also keep live trees well-watered.
- Install smoke alarms on every level of your home. For the best detection and notification protection, install both ionization- and photoelectric-type smoke alarms. Some models provide dual coverage. The type will be printed on the box or package. Put them inside or near every bedroom. Test them monthly to make sure they work. Put in new batteries once a year.
- Consider having a home fire sprinkler system installed in your new home, or when you remodel.
- Learn how and when to use a fire extinguisher.
- If you have a fire in your home, once you get out, stay out.
- Do not go back inside for any reason.
