What To Do If Fire Sprinklers Accidentally Activate
Fire sprinkler systems are designed and extensively tested for reliability. A fire safety system may still accidentally activate and cause flooding in a commercial building in Seattle, WA. A property owner or facility manager can take measures to limit damage, identify the cause of activation, and ensure that the system will function in the event of a real fire.
The best ways to immediately minimize damage include:
• Turning off the water supply
• Removing as much water as possible
• Contacting a mitigation company
Depending on the severity of flooding, it may be advisable to contact the property insurance provider and initiate a claim. SERVPRO of South/West Seattle can provide an estimate.
