For over 10 years, Glendale Flood Rescue has proudly been serving the local community with reliable water damage cleanup and restoration services. One of the worst types of water damage is from fire sprinklers. The sheer volume of the water, combined with the fact that it is sprayed in all directions, means that severe damage can occur. We will help you minimize these damages and their costs by getting water out and drying the property quickly and before secondary damages occur.
We are available 24/7 for water damage emergencies. Call us right away if your fire sprinklers have gone off so we can get to work cleaning it up. We will be there in 30 minutes or less!
What to Expect with Fire Sprinkler Water Damage
Water damage is broken down into categories and classes. Water damage from fire sprinklers is usually Category 1, meaning it is clean water. This is one thing you will have to your advantage, because there isn’t much or any need for sanitation and disinfection after fire sprinkler discharge. However, fire sprinkler damage usually falls into Class 3 of water damage, meaning that evaporation occurs very quickly and humidity levels can rapidly rise. When the fire sprinklers get surfaces like hardwood floors wet, then it may be Class 4 or “specialty drying situations.”
Each case of water damage from fire sprinklers must be approached uniquely. For this reason, we cannot tell you exactly how long it will take to clean up the damage. We can emphasize that the longer you wait to start cleanup, the worse the damages will be. Please do not wait a second longer than necessary to call for professional cleanup services. After just 1 day, mold can begin to grow on wet surfaces and major demolition and sanitation will be required.
We start with a careful assessment of the situation and then will report what you can expect in terms of steps, drying time, and damage. After obtaining your approval, we get to work with our high-powered water extraction machine which effectively “vacuums” water out of your flooring, walls, upholstery, carpets and more. But this is only the first step. From there, we set up air movers and dehumidifiers to remove water from your property, and control humidity levels. Some materials may be too risky to dry and are better to discard, such as carpet padding which takes a long time to dry and may grow mold. We will help you understand the process so you can make informed decisions along the way and get your property back to normal ASAP.
