Commercial Fires Causes
A wide range of factors may contribute to a commercial fire that can threaten the structure, capital improvements, and sanitation of your property. A wildfire, electrical fire, lightning strike, or a nearby commercial office inferno can have serious consequences. These are just a few factors that could lead to a fire.
The Importance Of Business Interruption Insurance
Unfortunately, commercial fires can cause many businesses to endure the type of substantive damages that preclude them from full recovery because of lost revenue and restoration costs. Many business owners fail to obtain business interruption insurance. Companies who do not obtain this coverage will also find the recovery process more difficult. In general, business interruption insurance costs roughly 10% more than a standard fire protection premium.
Because no company is entirely immune to a commercial fire, it is important for corporate leaders and business owners to obtain business interruption insurance. SERVPRO works in conjunction with many insurance carriers thereby allowing you to focus more on the business end of the fire event. In addition to obtaining the insurance, business owners should implement strategies that decrease the likelihood of fire damage. Some of those strategies include:
• Do not store flammable materials.
• Monitor smoke alarms to ensure that they function properly.
• Develop a fire evacuation plan.
• Keep your machinery and appliances in excellent condition.
• Ensure that all of your backup drives and critical paperwork are kept in a safe place with redundancy, perhaps the cloud.
