Sprinkler systems can cause water damage to your commercial property in Cleveland, OH

12/8/2021 (Permalink)

Fire sprinkler systems can help prevent property losses from fires. A properly installed and functioning sprinkler system is designed to put out a fire with limited amount of water used, but unfortunately they can also leave a mess from the water.

Damage from the sprinkler system can include: wet carpeting and flooring, drywall, other building materials and contents. In addition, if the water is not properly addressed, there could be development of mold.

When hiring a water remediation company such as SERVPRO of Medina County/Gateway/Western Lake County, you can be sure that the damage to your commercial building will be assessed and addressed properly. 

Depending on the size of the commercial building and the extent of damage, removing the water is usually the first plan of action.  The team will extract the water from the carpets and floors as needed.  They may need to use water pumps if there is a large amount of standing water. 

Drying out the area with dehumidifiers and air movers thoroughly to prevent mold or mildew from forming is also an important step in the drying process.  Sometimes drywall, baseboards or the carpet may need to be removed to help accelerate the drying process.

If your business is suffering from damage caused by a sprinkler system, call SERVPRO of Medina County/Gateway/Western Lake County because your business has to continue as soon as possible.
