Commercial Fire Damage Hazards in Pensacola Retail Stores
SERVPRO Technicians Can Offer Your Store Effective Fire Prevention Tips During an Inspection
Fires in retail stores cause a lot of damage in Pensacola every year, sometimes leading to severe injuries and even death of an employee. As such, retail environments need to be more vigilant than most when it comes to spotting fire hazards. In fact, shops and other retail businesses often feature in fire loss statistics, with more severe blazes contributing to a significant amount of lost business.
To protect your shop, you need a reliable fire damage restoration service to deal with the aftermath of a devastating fire disaster. At SERVPRO, we have a long history providing commercial fire damage restoration to Pensacola and its environs. Our technicians are highly trained and certified explicitly by the IICRC, ensuring that our methods are up to par with industry standards. Using advanced tools and products, we can restore your business to preloss condition as quickly as possible, "Like it never even happened."
Waste storage and combustible materials are some of the leading causes of commercial fire damage in a retail shop. These items tend to accumulate and present a fire hazard, so it is important to discard them on a regular basis. Indeed, something as simple as a burning cigarette can start a small fire that could spread quickly. It is advisable to set a separate area for waste disposal or avoid storing waste at the shop altogether.
Some warehouses often store flammable materials (e.g., flammable liquids) that can quickly spark when they come into contact with a flame. To minimize the risk of extensive fire damage, SERVPRO professionals can help you store and seal any containers with flammable liquids or vapors. Vapors are just as damaging in the presence of fire and can also ignite quickly. Additionally, make a point of cleaning up any spills on the floor as soon as they happen.
Poor ventilation can cause wood chips, dust, scrap plastic, and other debris to build up in the store. If your work environment produces considerable dust, SERVPRO technicians can help you install an extraction fan. Places that use heavy machines and equipment that tend to get hot should be kept clear of both gas and dust.
If your business incurs any type of commercial fire damage, SERVPRO of West Pensacola is here for you. We're Faster to Any Size Disaster, and our technicians are dedicated to returning your property to its original state quickly and efficiently. Give us a ring anytime at (850) 469-1160.
