When Fire Takes your Files

Despite all best efforts to have health and safety measures in place, a fire can start at any time in an office or warehouse.  In the past few months there have been some widely reported fires that have affected many businesses quite seriously.

Last September, a fire broke out during the daytime that affected several small businesses in a building in Coolock.  Thankfully all the staff were fine but with smoke damage being extensive throughout, much damage was to be expected.

A bank in the city centre suffered damage as a result of a fire in December.  Even the first week back to work this January brought news of a substantial fire, this time in Bray.  In this fire, a solicitor’s office was badly affected along with other buildings nearby.

Paper Destruction

While insurance will cover much of the cost in getting back up and running, the worry centres around those items that cannot be replaced.  In particular, the information you hold in paper documents is very susceptible to damage or destruction in the event of a fire.  Once those paper files are gone, then you can’t get them back.   This will have a major impact on any business but for financial or legal businesses, this could cause complications for clients for years to come.  The reputation of the business may be affected and this in turn could have huge implications for future success.
