Commercial kitchen fires are nothing new, but they are something that needs to be taken seriously. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) reports that from 2007 to 2011, 29 percent of office fires are caused by cooking equipment, causing 6 percent of property damage. When a fire occurs in a workplace or business, it could translate to thousands of dollars in fire damage repairs and restoration, as well as a possible loss of livelihood due to losses in revenue. In addition, the process of returning the property back to its pre-fire condition may cause a temporary or permanent business shutdown.
While professional fire damage restoration companies, such as ServiceMaster by Wright in Southwest Florida, could help restore the facility, fire prevention is still the best way to prevent incurring expenses from repairing the damage. In this article, ServiceMaster by Wright discusses six important safety tips to prevent office kitchen fires to protect the employees and the business.
