Sprinkler Systems - Common Culprit of Water Damage
Sprinkler systems are commonly installed in commercial and industrial buildings. They save employees lives and the building structure when a fire occurs. However, they do cause water damage when putting out the fire or with system malfunction.
SERVPRO of Spencer & Iowa Great Lakes is here to help. Fire sprinklers are activated when the mercury liquid filled bulb bursts between 135 and 165 degrees. It is thought by many that they are triggered by smoke. They are actually activated by heat. Common failures occur with sprinkler heads when the line freezes from cold or the head gets hit or pulled on.
Our team is here to help when you need it most. Whether you take advantage of our Emergency Ready Profile program or not, take the time to locate your sprinkler system shut off valves and have the appropriate contact information for the service provider.
If you find yourself with water damage due to a malfunctioning sprinkler head or fire cleanup call SERVPRO of Spencer & Iowa Great Lakes at 712-262-4379.
