"I called my insurance company and they immediately contacted your company. Robert Ball stated he would arrive to my home within an hour. He did….amazing!!!. I cannot say enough about the professionalism of your technicians…I had the feeling that every thing was going to be okay. In the afternoon on Saturday, I had reason to call Robert Ball, as I was concerned with my circuit breaker was tripping with the increased load created by drying equipment. Robert answered his phone…no voicemail…once again, amazing!! "

- Connie Thingstad
“We are writing this letter of reference for ProRestore DKI because of our appreciation and amazement of the service they showed us with their new way of cleaning product. Everything ProRestore DKI has cleaned came back to the store smelling fresh and free of stains and marks. I foresee us utilizing this service in the future when we come across some good, used sports equipment that really smells but has the quality to be resold. I recommend this cleaning service to anyone who has involvement with sport activities. From teams to single families, this service works.”

As scary as it may seem, there are certain situations that we have no control over, no matter how careful we are. However, by learning to deal with them effectively, you can ensure that you and your family will be able to get out of them safely. This is why it’s important to learn how to effectively suppress a small house fire in case one starts in your home. If you’d like a few tips, continue reading this post.

How to Effectively Suppress a Small House Fire

1.First, react quickly and assess the situation. Realize if this is something you can deal with or if you need a professional team to put the fire out (if it’s the latter, call the emergency responders and get out of the house as soon as possible). 

2.If you’re acting on it, you should take some safety precautions first. For example, shut off the gas supply, remove any flammable objects near the flame, and unplug any appliances closeby as well. 

3.Now, in order to put out the fire effectively you need to employ the required method for it. The most common options are as follows: 
- Use water if the fire is NOT electrical or oil/gasoline related, as this can only worsen the situation. Likewise, use abundant water to suppress the flames.
- A large enough, thick blanket that can cover the fire entirely will help suffocate the flames by cutting their air supply.
- Your best bet is to use fire extinguisher. Just make sure to read the instructions thoroughly first and to learn any precautions you should follow when you use it.

4.Once you’re completely certain that the fire has been put out, make sure to open any windows and doors, and to turn on any fans to allow air circulation through the room and help the smoke fade away. 

5.Lastly, you’ll just have to deal with the aftermath. Have a professional team come and restore your home and belongings. Likewise, make sure that whatever caused the fire doesn’t happen again.
