Fire Sprinkler Gone Wrong
In this particular project, we performed emergency water mitigation services for a commercial tenant who had a big, wet problem.
One morning an unsuspecting employee of a glass store was opening up the shop, where a large commercial roll up door was being opened to the building suite. Upon rolling open the door, one of the track wheels for the door broke off and the door came off of its track. The door knocked into a fire sprinkler and knocked the head right off which created a direct and powerful spout spray. The force of the water pressure was great and caused a lot of water damage to both that tenant's suite, and the neighboring tenant's suite.
As soon as we received the call for the water loss, our owner Rose headed out to the scene. She assured the client our process and readiness and got the okay to begin the emergency water mitigation.
We were able to quickly manipulate the contents in order to remove the affected insulation from the ceiling and walls as well as the water from concrete and carpet flooring. After drying the area and cleaning all contents that were salvageable, the client was pleasantly surprised to have her commercial suite back to a functioning state.
