Protect Your Business with a Fire Suppression System
Inspection in California
There is so much at stake in terms of people and property when it comes to preventing fires in commercial buildings. Understanding the most common causes of commercial building fires helps to prevent them from happening because you can take steps to ensure the prevention of some of the leading causes. However, no matter how many preventive measures you take, accidents can still occur. That’s why it’s essential to have a working fire-monitoring system in place, and a plan so that building occupants know what to do in the event of a fire.
It pays to protect your business building with help from Davis Fire Protection, a leader in fire suppression system inspection in California. More than a million commercial building fires take place each year. Most of these fires result in injuries, loss of life, and monetary losses. What are the leading causes of so many commercial building fires? It turns out that human errors are not always the cause. In fact, just as cooking is the most common cause of residential fires, it is also the leading cause of office building or commercial fires. Equipment used in cooking is the cause of many office fires, which is why it’s important to have fire extinguishers posted in every workplace kitchen. Some of the other most common causes of fires in office buildings include the following:
- Electrical System Malfunctions
- Lighting Equipment
- Heating Equipment
- Malfunctioning Water Heaters, Boilers, & Furnaces
Many commercial fires are quickly contained, so there is minimal building damage and injuries. Buildings in which there are working sprinklers result in much lower damages and injuries. That significantly lower rate of deaths and damages is particularly true when business managers are vigilant about having a yearly fire suppression system inspection in California. For businesses with office spaces, it is critical to have proper detection equipment and fire extinguishers available and working at all times. The best defense against building fires is to install wet pipe sprinklers.
