When a fire rages out of control, the consequences are always devastating. This is sadly a common occurrence in many industrial and commercial settings, especially warehouses. If you watch the news, then it's likely that you'll see case after case of warehouses or businesses being ravaged by a fire that no one saw coming. The recent $6 million warehouse fire in Alexandria was a shocking example of the chaos and damage that can be caused by a flame that quickly grows out of control. The Alexandria warehouse was a malicious act, yet the vast majority of fires are caused by accidents and neglect. McKee-Horrigan Inc. has a long history of working on industrial and commercial renovations. The Mississauga-based overhead door experts are now using their trained and highly qualified commercial contractors to stomp out the chances of an accidental fire for local businesses.

Businesses have a lot to lose if a fire starts in their warehouse. A warehouse is meant to store commodities and prepare them for shipping; many of the materials used to contain and organize this cargo are highly flammable. The damages can rack up in the hundreds of thousands of dollars easily, and workers are also put at risk.

Warehouses also pose substantial challenges for fire protection due to their storage configuration, ceiling heights, materials stored, and building layouts. It is essential that commercial contractors maintain and fireproof the building. Warehouse fires are statistically most likely to occur during normal business hours, when equipment is running at top capacity. 13% of warehouse fires are caused by electrical sources or lighting equipment. Two out of every five fires are caused by operating equipment undergoing a malfunction. Four out of every five warehouse fires are not the result of arson, and as such, can be prevented by commercial renovations by trained experts.

McKee-Horrigan Inc.'s renovations cover wiring, structural issues, electrical sources, and lighting issues. In addition, they will repair and monitor dock equipment and ensure that there are no fire risks on site. Regular renovations by trained experts dramatically slashes the rate of an accidental fire. This new initiative should be a major step towards ensuring community safety and preventing massive property damage for local businesses.

To take advantage of McKee-Horrigan's expertise and invest in this new offer, they are giving free consultations and quotes to potential clients. The company can be called at 1-888-244-4171 via phone, or contacted via e-mail through their website.
