Business Owners Should Follow These Simple Steps to Reduce Fire Hazards
The most common measures include servicing equipment regularly, avoiding power strip overload and turning off equipment at the end of the day.
Clearing Stairwells: If there is a stairwell in your place of business, clear steps of boxes, stored items, detritus and anything else that could impede rapid evacuations if a fire breaks out. These items can also be flammable fuel that feeds a fire.
Inspecting wiring twice a year. Many businesses occupy older buildings with aged wiring. Schedule inspections twice yearly and upgrade electrical equipment as professionals recommend.
Completing these two items alone along with other fire hazard precautions can save you time and money. But if you are to ever experience a fire loss in your commercial building you should always call SERVPRO of Encino/Sherman Oaks to your side.
