Proactive Tips to Help Mitigate Effects of Commercial Fire Damage


Fires in business places present several challenges including closing down to clean up and restore damages, which leads to interruptions of normal operations. If appropriate measures are taken in time, it is possible to reduce the impact such incidents have. We offer professional fire restoration services helping businesses in Chesterton resume their normal operations faster.

Prevention is better than cure even when dealing with commercial fire damage in Chesterton, which is why our SERVPRO technicians help businesses develop ERP, Emergency Response Profiles. Understanding the factors likely to cause or spread the fire quickly at your premises is part of the response plan. If it is an office, electrical equipment such as photocopiers, monitors, printers, lamps, and kettles can start fires due to malfunctions or frayed cables. Periodic inspection can help identify these issues before they lead to fires.

The abundance of combustible materials in many work environments can fuel uncontrollable fires. In offices, discarded packaging materials, loose paper, and other regular wastes can fuel small fires to uncontrollable levels. Also, the materials used to make soft furnishings, as well as the adhesives used in furniture and aerosols, create perfect fuels for fires. As part of the emergency response profile, we help businesses identify these additional dangers and adopt solutions like clean desk policy in which papers are stored in cabinets until needed.

During fires, there is a need to turn off utilities and call emergency services immediately. Most emergencies lead to confusion so delays can happen. The SERVPRO ERP can help you in many ways. We help you appoint key personnel to handle fire emergencies. We also ensure you know where utility turn-off switches are located and provide you with contacts of emergency services. The emergency response profile also equips our staff with valuable information that helps us respond properly when you call us.
