What to Do When Your Fire Sprinklers Go Off
Fire sprinklers are designed to put out a fire, so they will spray down around 25 to 100 gallons per minute. Most cases of fire sprinkler damage that we see are from accidental discharges. Luckily, in these cases, it is usually only one sprinkler head which goes off and it usually turns off quickly. Even in just a few seconds though, the fire sprinklers can cause a lot of damage.
You will need to call the fire department if your fire sprinklers go off (even if accidentally). They will give you instructions about which parts to collect and send to the manufacturer to make sure the defect doesn’t occur again. At this time, you will also want to call for water damage cleanup services. Even if the water damage doesn’t look bad, the increased moisture in your home or business can be dangerous as it may lead to toxic mold growth. Water damage can also destroy the foundation of your building, destroy property, and discolor your belongings. It is better to play it safe and have the professionals clean it up!
Our Water Damage Cleanup Methods
Every case of water damage is different and cleanup will need to be custom tailored to the situation. With fire sprinkler discharge, there is usually going to be Class III water damage, meaning a high amount of moisture in surfaces like drywall, ceilings, carpets, and upholstery.
Our first priority is always to ensure your safety. We will make sure there aren’t any electrical risks or other risks present. Then we get to work with our high powered water extraction machines which suction water and moisture out of your belongings. Some absorbent materials like drywall typically need to be removed and replaced as it isn’t cost effective to save them. If this is the case, we take care of the removal and disposal for you. Materials like carpets and upholstery can be saved so long as mold growth hasn’t begun. We will use state of the art drying techniques to get items dry quickly so you can get back on with your life.
