Preventing Commercial Fire Damage
Fire statistics show that in 2012, 7 years ago, there were more than 98,000 non-residential building fires and we at SERVPRO of Lafayette / Moraga / Orinda want to help prevent fires in your business.
Here are some valuable prevention tips for you and your company:
29% of commercial blazes were caused by cooking equipment so you should follow manufacturers’ recommendations for maximum volt/wattage for each equipment you have in your kitchen area.
You can always ask your electrician to periodically inspect the item and outlets for potential overload in you kitchen or anywhere in your office area.
on the same topic, replace appliances that feel hot when you touch.
Most of the appliances and other equipment don't need to be plugged in when they aren't being used so unplugging them at the end of the day and weekends is a good wait to prevent fires out of business hours.
We at SERVPRO of Lafayette / Moraga / Orinda can provide you with a FREE ERP - Emergency Ready Plan - that will help you be prepared for anything that occurs making your life easier and damages reduced.
