According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the five most common causes of fires in commercial buildings are cooking equipment, heating equipment, electrical and lighting equipment, smoking materials, and intentional fire setting. Being able to Identify any possible causes could be quite beneficial this winter season.

  Commercial fires happen more often than you might think. Being prepared and having information to possibly avoid commercial fires can be quite helpful. By knowing what may cause a commercial fire, your business can take proper precautions to prevent damage to your property.

  Cooking Equipment causes a majority of commercial fires, Hospitals, restaurants, and healthcare facilities are just a few to name. Because of high cooking temperatures, flammable oils and grease, and the hectic nature of commercial kitchens, this is the single most common cause of commercial fires.

  Here in Buffalo most commercial buildings require heat to stay comfortable and functional for many months of the year. As with other mechanical equipment, furnaces, boilers, and radiators are at risk of overheating. This, in turn, can lead to a fire. It is important to maintenance this equipment regularly to avoid any accidents.

  All buildings are riddled with electrical wiring behind the wall for light and power. Unfortunately, electricity carries inherent fire risk. Old or defective wiring, overloaded circuits, loose connections, faulty fuses, imbalanced electrical loads, are a few electrical causes for fire in your building.

 Being prepared is always key, but if a fire should occur, SERVPRO of Buffalo Tonawanda is always available to help.
