You would not want your business to be without a fire sprinkler system, and of course, they are required by law. Sprinkler systems can be a literal lifesaver and prevent property loss when a fire hits your company. Business owners save millions of dollars annually by complying with state ordinances. You save on insurance and tax deductions when a sprinkler system is in place. But when they kick in, they leave a serious mess behind. Hometown Restoration offers commercial fire sprinkler emergency water damage cleanup in Del Mar.
Does a Sprinkler Flood a Business?
As soon as a fire is detected, the sprinkler system kicks in and prevents a fire’s spread. The sprinkler works during the “flash-over” phase of the fire. A sound sprinkler system reduces the amount of water used to put out the fire. Yes, a good amount of water gets used, hundreds of gallons – but that is nothing compared to what firefighters will use to douse a fire.
Sprinkler System Water Damage
Anytime you have flooding in your facility or moisture from water loss, it needs to be removed. When a sprinkler goes off, the water damage can affect:
- Carpet and flooring
- Building material
- Office content
Mold and mildew can result from any moisture that is not addressed, and it can happen faster than you think. Hiring a professional water restoration company is your best bet to make sure everything is handled correctly. Your insurance may actually require this.
