A commercial building needs to be prepared for whatever happens. A building generating business and revenue can't lack safety measures for its property. One of the top risks to mitigate is Fire Damage. Commercial Fires happen more often than the news may tell. Here are the Top 3 Causes for Commercial Fires.

1. Cooking Equipment

Cooking equipment = restaurants. High temperatures, grease, and oil make kitchen fires all too common.

If your property is a healthcare facility or any other facility with cooking equipment, is a fire extinguisher near? Remember, think safe & think smart.

2. Heating Equipment

Some commercial buildings require heating to operate effectively. Heating from mechanical equipment, furnaces, boilers, and radiators is at risk of overheating and starting a fire.

3. Electrical & Lighting Equipment

Electrical wiring and lighting can be found in just about any and all buildings. Some wiring can be older or defective than others, causing overloaded circuits, loose connections, faulty fuses, imbalanced electrical loads, and many other electrical or lighting problems.

  • 12% of these fires take place in office properties.

Keep your commercial building safe. Regular inspections and maintenance help mitigate the risk of fire damage. The additional use of Fire Extinguishers and Fire Sprinklers keeps the risk low.
