Smoke Sets Off Sprinklers Causing Significant Damage to Boulder Restaurant

Commercial Smoke Sets Off Sprinklers Causing Significant Damage to Boulder Restaurant Sprinkler systems are effective if fire is involved. But if they are accidentally set off, the water damage can overwhelm your business. Call SERVPRO.

Water Damage can Quickly Affect Your Business After an Event

Smoke alarms and sprinkler systems without a doubt save commercial businesses from fire damage. Smoke without fire trips the sprinklers in some cases, resulting in water damage unrelated to an actual fire. This unintended water damage causes a range of problems SERVPRO is ready to help the business owner solve.
 
An overly sensitive sensor triggers your restaurant's sprinkler system due to smoke or steam, but not because of flames. Commercial sprinklers discharge at least 300 gallons per minute, quickly inundating kitchen and dining areas with a considerable amount of water. Commercial water damage spreads throughout your Boulder bistro, and simply turning off the spray resolves few issues. We offer the professional response needed to remove the water and ensure no secondary damage occurs.
 
Our team arrives ready to extract the water fast. If the power is off or gas line involvement is a concern SERVPRO uses truck mounted pumps and extractors, so we get to work immediately. We search for water infiltration in unexpected spaces under and behind ovens, grills, and stovetops, as well as drywall, insulation, and subflooring. Your staff does not have the training our technicians receive, so deciding to do the cleanup with an in-house team risks failure to contain and remove all pockets of water. Missing any hidden water is a huge error, and allowing that concealed moisture to damage structures, rust or rot fixtures, and contribute to mold growth causes greater expenses and possible temporary or permanent closure of your restaurant down the line.
 
After extraction of the majority of the water, visible and concealed, SERVPRO staff assesses the moisture content of building materials and sets drying goals. Our crew positions air movers to hasten the reduction of moisture in the structure and structural components. Meanwhile, a general cleanup of the premises is completed, allowing a speedy reopening. We understand that a restaurant loses both money and its reputation as a reliable eating destination if it must close for a period, so our mission is to restore your premises as soon as it is safe and possible.
 
When sprinkler systems malfunction and fill your restaurant with water, call SERVPRO of Lafayette / Louisville for a rapid and efficient response. A call to our dispatchers at (303) 604-6607 schedules the crew and equipment needed to minimize this disaster.
