Sprinkler System Water Damage After Fire

During a recent fire in a Cleveland high rise apartment building the sprinkler system disbursed water to extinguish the fire.  This helped limit the amount of fire damage done to the property.  It also undoubtably saved lives.  Unfortunately, the fire was on the 11th floor and water damaged units all the way to the first floor.  If not properly addressed, you could be left with a moisture problem.  Sprinkler system water damage can include wet drywall, carpet, and other building materials.  Contents in offices and apartments can be damaged such as couches, beds and even electronics can develop mold and mildew. 

Hiring a water restoration professional, like SERVPRO of Cuyahoga South, is the first step to make sure all water damage is addressed and managed with skill to eliminate future damage. Our service will assess the existing water damage and develop a strategy to return your property back to its original, non-damaged state. The plan includes

    • Clearing out possessions: To avoid further damage to possessions made from wood, cloth, or other porous surfaces, we will remove the property and store it in a safe place until ready to return. Some items may need to be replaced depending on the level of damage and whether or not they are able to be restored.
    • Removing the water: Water pumps, water extraction equipment, dehumidifiers, and air movers can be used to remove water efficiently and effectively.
    • Drying the area: Similar to removing the water, dehumidifiers and will be used to help make sure everything is thoroughly dry, in order to avoid mold and mildew from forming.
    • Repairing: When water damage weakens the structure of a building or drywall, or leaves permanent stains on carpeting and upholstery, restoring the property may require construction or additional cleaning services.
