Accidental Fire Sprinkler Discharge
Most of the calls we get for fire sprinkler damage occur due to accidental discharge. Luckily, this does not happen frequently but it can be disastrous when it does occur. In the event of an accidental fire sprinkler discharge, you will need to call the fire department to inform them and also likely the manufacturer of the fire sprinkler. Do not throw out the faulty fire sprinkler as it will need to be examined to ensure the same problem does not occur again.
When fire sprinklers go off, there will be water damage in all directions – floors, walls, ceilings, on furniture… It is imperative that wet items which cannot be saved are removed right away, and that the water extraction and drying process beings right away. When you call us right away, we can save most items, especially carpets and furniture. If you have important paper documents which need to be saved, we recommend putting them in the freezer and then later sending them to a specialist for restoration.
Drying can be performed using our industry-grade air movers, which are set up for optimal air flow. We have hundreds of air movers in our supply room, so are ready to handle even the worst cases of fire sprinkler damage cleanup. The air movers will only help dry water out of surfaces. That water then turns into vapor and goes into the air. It is crucial that this vapor is removed from the air, which is something we can do with professional dehumidification units. Drying and dehumidification can be monitored remotely to make sure moisture levels stay under control.
Sprinkler Discharge After Fires
When your fire sprinklers have gone off after a fire, be thankful that those sprinklers were there or else everything might have gone up in flames! But it isn’t time to rest yet. Now comes to challenge of cleaning up a combination of smoke, ash, and water.
Smoke can be either oily or dry, depending on what was on fire. Often, we see both oily and dry smoke residue in one place. This is important because each type of residue requires a different approach to cleanup. When the smoke combines with water, the water will need to be dried as well.
Our technicians are IICRC Certified for both water damage and fire and smoke damage cleanup services. We have a huge arsenal of equipment and cleaning agents which allow us to get fire sprinkler, soot, ash, and smoke cleaned up quickly. You can count on us to get the job done right, and to get it done as quickly as possible.
