Aging Sprinkler Systems Can Spell Substantial Water Damage For Your Phoenix Clothing Store
Aging Sprinkler Systems Can Spell Substantial Water Damage For Your Property
Running a clothing store in Phoenix can offer you a lot of unique foot traffic from day to day. While you work hard to keep the store well-stocked and ready for all of the customers it likely sees during your hours of operation, every business teeters on the edge of disaster with outdated sprinkler systems. So many of the older buildings that house the retail locations throughout the city might remain in compliance with adequate sprinkler fixtures and networking, but fail to appreciate the aging of these pipes and their ability to falter with time.
Fortunately, even some of the older sprinkler systems did not get designed to be force fed water when there was no emergency in the building. Instead, when these pipes break or rupture, you are only emptying out the current contents of these pipes instead of an endless supply from your service lines. Even with this lessened condition, this network of fire prevention plumbing can house a great volume, likely forcing you to pursue professional water removal services for your Phoenix clothing store.
Perhaps one of the biggest concerns beyond the obvious substantial water damage for our SERVPRO team is the liquid itself coming from the pipes. It is customary that the standing fluid in sprinkler systems is a mixture of water and an antifreeze solution. This chemical varies in viscosity and even color, posing a considerable risk to the stock of clothing that you have in your storerooms or on the racks and shelves.
Our SERVPRO technicians can get to work quickly on extracting the water and assessing the damage to fabrics, textiles, and carpeting throughout this process. This inspection guides our professionals towards additional cleaning approaches that might be necessary following the drying of the affected areas.
While you might not think of your sprinkler system as much more than a store saving implement in the event of a fire, sometimes they can cause many problems for business owners. Fortunately, you can trust our SERVPRO of East Phoenix restoration specialists to help you clean up the mess and get back to serving the community as quickly as possible.
