SERVPRO Water Restoration Salvages Reading Businesses After Accidental Sprinkler Activation

There are many causes for accidental sprinkler discharge that can introduce large amounts of water into a restaurant, such as Reading business owners hiring contractors to perform renovation or routine cleaning of the sprinklers going awry. Fortunately, there is preventative maintenance that business owners can undertake to minimize incidents and fast-acting solutions for when disaster strikes.

Reading SERVPRO commercial water restoration offers the tools and techniques necessary to clean up a water-damaged business to code. Technicians and franchise owners alike receive extensive training and education to return commercial properties to a pre-disaster condition after moisture exposure.

What Causes Accidental Restaurant Sprinkler Activation?

Some common causes include:

  • Accidentally hitting a sprinkler head with a ladder or other object can cause activation.
  • Proximity to heat sources like lights, electronics, or machinery can also set off a sprinkler.
  • Cleaning sprinkler bulbs with compressed air can run the risk of cooling and shattering the sprinkler’s thermal glass bulb, which can also cause discharge.

Many incidences of accidental sprinkler activation are preventable with regular maintenance and the installation of sprinkler head guards.

SERVPRO professionals can extract large amounts of water from sprinkler activation with portable and truck-mounted extractors to prepare a restaurant dining area for structural drying with air movers and dehumidifiers. Cleanup also includes wiping down contents like tables, chairs, and booths with OSHA-approved biocides and performing odor control with solvent-based deodorizers.
