Top Causes of Fires in Commercial Buildings

9/28/2020 (Permalink)

A fire or smoke damage to your commercial building can have catastrophic consequences. No matter the source, the damage to your business can be costly to you and your customers. Understanding the most common causes of fire damage to commercial properties allows you to better mitigate your risks to your business.

1. The number one cause of commercial fire damage is cooking. Although most commonly occurring in restaurants, any building that has a working kitchen is at risk. High cooking temperatures, flammable oils and grease and multiple people working in close proximity make this an ideal situation for a fire or smoke damage to occur.

2. The second most common cause of fires in commercial buildings is heating equipment. Malfunctioning heaters, boilers and radiators can overheat and lead to fire or smoke damage. Improperly utilized space heaters can also be dangerous.

3. Electrical and lighting equipment is the third most common cause of damage to commercial buildings. Old wiring and overloaded circuits can lead to overheating that can spark a fire or smoke damage. 

Knowledge of these common causes of fire and smoke damage to your commercial property is the first step to prevention. Proper maintenance by qualified HVAC technicians and electricians is a first step to minimizing your risks. If your commercial property suffers a fire or smoke damage call the experts at SERVPRO of Hamilton County, of Indianapolis North and of Anderson at 317-846-5282 anytime day or night.
