SERVPRO Advises Agoura Business Owners about Fire Damage

Fire prevention takes effort, yet many business operators give it a minimal priority. Sometimes the results of such inaction are dire if a fire ignites and destroys property. Since one fire incident does not prevent another one from occurring, learning what you can do to avoid fire at your Agoura facility is as important as doing thorough fire restoration.

Unlike doing fire restoration at your Agoura premises which requires immediate actions such as demolition, cleaning fire residues, and rebuilding damaged areas, preventing fire is a longer-term operation. It calls for adjusting how you do things and buying various safety accessories. When the SERVPRO restoration crew inspects your premises, we can identify the procedures you can implement to limit the chances of a fire incident.

Helpful changes that can prevent fires:

  • Safeguarding appliances with surge protectors 
  • Keeping flammable materials from the heat
  • Attending to flames and heat sources
  • Reducing clutter 

Every commercial premise is set up uniquely, so the risks vary. Some aspects, such as utilizing electric-powered equipment and appliances, are common in most facilities, so it is easy for a professional to give you helpful advice without having to do an in-depth inspection of the facility. SERVPRO technicians focus on your setup and usage of electronic equipment. Unplugging any equipment when not in use and installing surge protectors rather than plugging them directly into the outlets to minimize the risks of shorts or overheating that can spark fires.

Waste and Clutter Management

If your operations leave materials cluttered around, you increase the risk of fires. Our SERVPRO restoration technicians advise you to pay close attention to handling waste materials such as shredded papers and flammable chemicals. For a laundromat, removing lint from dryers and changing filters enhances fire safety. 

Other useful actions include:

  • Ensuring any open flames are attended
  • Enforcing policies on cigarette disposal by staff or customers
  • Separating waste receptacles
