According to the statistics published by the National Fire Protection Association, commercial fire damage accounted for more than 3,000 calls made to the fire department during the past five years and cost more than $4 billion on an average regarding property damages within a year. Some significant reasons behind commercial fires are cooking equipment, electrical appliances, lightning, and arson. A substantial problem with electrical fires is that they often trigger fire suppression systems such as fire sprinklers. In addition to fire hoses from fire trucks, fire sprinkler systems can also cause massive flooding. It’s possible the water can do far more damage than the fire it was meant to extinguish. Commercial fire damage could reach far beyond what is visible to the naked eyes.

Protective Measures Before Entering Fire Damaged Building
Damage doesn’t end when a fire stops burning. Different chemical reactions activated by the fire and soot continue after the fire has been put out. There are many health and safety hazards after commercial fire damage. Both your health and safety are at risk when going inside a building right after a structure has endured fire damage. It is always recommended to enter a building only after the fire marshal has inspected the building and allowed you to go inside. The fire marshal will ensure the structure is safe to enter. Still, to go inside a facility after recent commercial damage, you should always make sure that you do so with appropriate clothing, wearing an N95 mask, protective eyewear, and gloves to protect you from soot and smoke particles. The smoke odor, soot and smoke damage left behind by commercial fire damage can cause breathing difficulties and other health hazards.
