Fire Sprinkler Creates Water Damage
Fire sprinklers can be extremely effective when limiting damage from a fire but can also cause a lot of water damage. With rising regulations on fire sprinklers being installed in homes, we have seen an influx of water damages resulting from fire sprinklers.
This photo is from fire sprinkler damage. A service technician was installing a satellite dish and punctured a pipe. You can see there is substantial pressure in the pipe as the water shot directly across the ceiling and ran down the wall.
The customer acting quickly did the proper thing and shut the water off to the structure. She then called the company who originally installed the sprinkler to come fix the issue and finally by calling SERVPRO of Henderson and Boulder City to ensure drying of the structure limited secondary damage and to take care of the standing water.
Call SERVPRO with any flood damage caused by fire sprinklers or any water damage. No job is too big, or too small.
