Classes of Fire Damage Oshawa

In general, fire is categorized into 5 classes and below you will see them listed based on their source:

  • Class A Fire → ‘Ordinary Fire’

Class A Fire is generally produced by solid materials including paper, wood, fabric and plastic and is one of the most common types of fire.

It requires adequate protection and this could be reached by hiring IBX Services fire damage restoration company, which has highly qualified professionals who have masters in fire damage restoration services.

  • Class B Fire → ‘Liquid & Gas’

Class B Fire contains flammable liquids or gasses such as gasoline, paint, kerosene and alcohol. This is most common in industrial, residential and commercial fire damage Oshawa settings. The most effective way to deal with this type of fire is by smothering them and removing oxygen by using foam. Moreover, it tends to spread rapidly and produce thick smoke as they burn and people mustn’t use any water. It is by far better to leave expertized people to handle fire damage created in your property in case of class B  fire occurrence.

  • Class C Fire → ‘Electrical Fires’

Class C Fire can occur due to electrical currents and electrical equipment. An obvious risk area for class C Fire can be data centers that should have safeguards in place to deal with it

It is most common in industrial settings that deal with electrically or energy-powered equipment.

  • Class D Fire → ‘Metallic Fires’

Furthermore, it is very important to avoid using water as it will make fire potentially more dangerous. For any possible damage coming from metallic fires, it is necessary to call a fire damage restoration company to give a quick and efficient solution.

  • Class K Fires → ‘Cooking or Grease Fires’

They can leave dangerous damage on any commercial or residential property. Water is a critical element that does not have the power to eliminate it but instead makes it worse.
