Commercial Building Water Damage Cleanup from Fire Sprinkler Discharge.
If you manage a commercial building in Minnesota that had a fire or an accidental discharge of your fire sprinkler system, there could be between 20-40 gallons of water discharged each minute. Over the time it took to shut off the sprinklers, which could have easily been 10-15 minutes, at least 100-200 gallons of water saturated the floors, walls and ceilings of your building.
Your First Step is to Minimize the Water Damage from the Fire Sprinklers.
It’s your responsibility to deal with the water damage right away to avoid any long-term structural issues or mold growth. The water damage from a sprinkler system discharge typically includes wet drywall, carpeting, subflooring, personal property of tenants, and the future possibility of mold and mildew.
