Commercial Fires in Mesa County

Even with the best fire prevention training and protocols and fire suppression systems, fires can still happen. Fire can pose a severe threat to human life, property, and assets in commercial spaces. 

SERVPRO of Grand Junction wants to share the following information about commercial fires and how safety equipment helps to lessen the damage and can assist in preventing any bodily injury. According to the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association), one of the most common causes of commercial fires is electrical and lighting equipment. This type of fire is not easily predicted, as the lighting equipment can look excellent outside your place of business.

  • There should always be a fire extinguisher in reach inside of a commercial building, and they must be checked annually to ensure they are in working order.
  • If there is a lot of smoke inside the building, cover your mouth and nose and do your best not to inhale any of it.
  • Building sprinklers should be examined and tested every five years.
  • If an office building is on fire, exit the building immediately and do not try to fight the fire yourself.
  • Wet pipe sprinklers installed in the ceilings of commercial buildings are very effective in helping to fight fires.

If a commercial building in Mesa County does catch fire, rest assured that SERVPRO of Grand Junction is prepared to help clean up any fire damage the building/area has sustained and make it "Like it never even happened''. Contact us today at 970-241-8181.
