Water Sprinklers In The Home For Ultimate Safety

Aug 7, 2008
There is nothing more frightening for a home owner than when there is a fire in their home. It does not matter if it is just a small fire, it can be extremely terrifying trying to get it out before it spreads through the entire home. Many times a small home fire extinguisher will do the trick and every home should have at least one. Sometimes if a fire is not caught quickly enough, it can spread beyond what a fire extinguisher can control and put out.

One source for controlling a home fire until the fire department arrives is by having a sprinkler system installed in the house. Many people might think that it is only possible to have a sprinkler system installed while a home is being built, but this is not the case. A home sprinkler system can be retrofitted in almost every home. This can provide you with that extra peace of mind in the event of a fire.

Smoke alarms are also necessary in every home. There should be several placed at different intervals around the house. Smoke alarms only work when they have batteries in them that are still good. This means that you should test your smoke alarms periodically and make sure fresh batteries are put in as often as the alarm recommends. When a smoke alarm goes off in your home, the first thing to do is get all of your family out safely. Then use a phone at your neighbors or your cell phone if you have it to call the fire department.

It is always tempting for a home owner to go back in the home and try and put the fire out their self until the fire department comes. This can be a mistake especially if the fire is already raging out of control. At a time like this is when it would be so great to have a home sprinkler system installed. It will go on and immediately begin wetting things down to help extinguish the fire and prevent it from spreading without having to endanger your self. These sprinkler systems have been around for about a hundred years and have helped to save many buildings and lives.

Having a sprinkler system installed in your home might not be as expensive as you think either. It should cost about one dollar to one dollar and a half per square foot. This is really quite affordable when you think of all that you have to lose if your home and belongings were to burn up in a fire. If you live in a rural area where a fire department might be slow in getting to your home, having a sprinkler system in your home can be a valuable resource.
