Causes Of Fire In A Commercial Building

Fires constitute a major concern and may result in the loss of property, productive time, and even the risk of life. The most prevalent causes of fire in commercial buildings are well-known to the public. However, there are other, less prevalent causes of commercial fires for which company owners and residents should exercise caution. Here are a few causes of fire in a commercial building.

Use of cleaning agents, including solutions and other compounds

Following the directions on how to store cleaning products properly is essential. Make sure you're acquainted with them, particularly when it comes to the utility room or if you're keeping chemicals beneath the sink. Certain chemicals may start a fire if combined or heated up from being improperly stored.


Animals may have a role in some of the strangest fire starts. Consider the following:

  • A bird may choose to make its nest near electrical wires or on top of buildings that may get hot.
  • Mice may gnaw through electrical lines, resulting in a fire outbreak.


It's no secret that we despise dust, but now we have even more reason to get out the vacuum cleaner. Almost every sort of dust has the potential to catch fire. It is possible for materials that are not easily ignited to provide a fire danger when they are in the form of dust.

Computer and Laptop Overheating

Computer and laptop fires may be rare, but they do happen. Fans or batteries that fail, worn-out connections and excessive temperatures are all possible causes of computer and laptop fires.

What to Do If Fire destroys a Commercial Building

Restoring a commercial building after a fire is out and everyone has been evacuated may be challenging. To help restore your fire-damaged property to its former glory, call on the experienced specialists at SERVPRO of Stockton (209) 477-3090.
