Fire and smoke damage to your commercial building has the potential to have catastrophic consequences. Whether your property suffers from the devastation of raging flames to clouds of thick smoke, the damage to your business not only costs you money to repair, but sets back your business operations. To better mitigate your risks to your business, it is crucial to understand the most common causes of fire damage for a commercial property.

Top Causes of Fires on Commercial Properties


Any building that has a working kitchen is at risk for a fire. Although most commonly occurring in restaurants, high cooking temps, flammable oils, and grease are susceptible to starting fires. In addition to these flammable materials, multiple people working in close proximity make this an ideal situation for fire or smoke damage to occur.

Heating Equipment

Lining up at number two on the list would be the equipment that is used to heat a commercial property. Malfunctioning heaters, boilers, and radiators can overheat and lead to fire and smoke damage. Improperly utilized space heaters can also be extremely dangerous. It is important to ensure that you're keeping up on your building maintenance to catch any issues before it turns into a disaster.

Electrical Equipment and Lighting

The third most prevalent cause of damage to commercial buildings is electrical and lighting equipment. If your commercial property is aged, the wiring and circuits in the inside are, too. Overloading circuits and outlets can lead to overheating, which could result in a spark that can start a traumatic fire.
