Combustible Waste Removal
DID YOU KNOW
FIRES OCCUR IN UNOCCUPIED BUILDINGS
Fire Risk in Unoccupied Buildings
Each year there are around 9,000 fires in unoccupied buildings. Arson is responsible for more than half of the known causes of fire damage in commercial and industrial property. Where these are located in secluded areas such as out-of-town industrial or retail parks, the risk of attack is particularly high.
It is therefore very important to take every possible step to minimise fire risks. Removing combustible waste from within and around vacant building is the first and most obvious step, effectively taking away from site anything that can burn. With little available to fuel a fire, any arson attack will cause far less damage until the Fire Brigade arrives to put it out.
Remove Combustible Waste
As Environment Agency licensed waste carriers with a fleet of clearance vehicles nationwide, we offer a practical and affordable alternative to skip hire or other routes to remove all combustible items from your unoccupied property, as well as providing you with a full audit trail for the correct disposal, which you are liable to ensure.
Vacant Property Protection
Making sure the building is properly and professionally secured will stop arsonists, vandals and thieves getting in. Boarding up windows and doors in wood, therefore seems ironic, since you’re adding combustible material to a building you want to reduce the fire risk at! We only recommend and fit solid steel security, which doesn’t burn and never warps. Alternatively, for particularly vulnerable sites, you may want to consider a temporary intruder alarm system or even licensed security guards.
