Commercial Front Seat In Lancaster South Carolina Commercial Water Loss Yes the seats empty for a first hand view of a commercial water loss in Lancaster South Carolina

When offered the front seat one imagines the shottgun theory lol. Let’s load up and go for a ride woo hoo.  Will unfortunately this front seat offer was more in line with a commercial sprinkler shower. 

Without a doubt all involved and privy to the water damage were absolutely dumbfounded at how such a major water loss had just occurred in a large commercial building. 

Did you know that there are different types of fire sprinkler heads?  I did not, yet was made aware that there is by the fire chief who responded with the fire department.  

The level of heat allowed by the heat of the ceiling attic triggered a full blown fire alarm to the fire department.

Water Damage Flood Flow From Water in Lancaster South Carolina Through The Door of the office flows water in Lancaster South Carolina

Once there is a flood on the inside of a building, or home the water will continue to flow until the source of the problem is resolved. Water either into the line must be shut off, or the entire water system will need to be shut off, and a plumber will need to come and resolve the issue that caused the water to flood the home, or office.

Upon arriving to work Monday morning the office manager was greeted with standing water that was caused by a broken pipe in the break room. Making a call to SERVPRO of Kershaw and Lancaster Counties brought out a crew in less than an hour to begin the water mitigation process.

And There Wasn't Even a Fire in Lake Wateree South Carolina

Commercial And There Wasn't Even a Fire in Lake Wateree South Carolina Fire Sprinkler Heads Cause Water Damage at Lake Wateree South Carolina

SERVPRO of Kershaw and Lancaster Counties like any other restoration company receives calls from time to time that causes one to step back, and say "You've got to be kidding". This is the exact response by SERVPRO of Kershaw and Lancaster Counties upon arriving at a medical facility that had received a fire alert. The fire department was diligently searching for the fire that had caused the alarm. No flames were found, nor was there any indication of smoke, or anything smoldering. Perplexed as to what had caused the alarm, and all of the indoor Fire Sprinkler Heads to activate. The water source was turned off, but not before the interior had received extensive water damage. Ceilings had dropped, insulation heavily saturated with water now lay on the floor throughout the building. Looking into the waiting room at just the right angle one had the perception the floor had just received a top notch coat of wax the glisten was so magnificent.

SERVPRO of Kershaw and Lancaster Counties set up and began the task of extracting the water, and removing the debris caused by the water. Still no one was able to locate a fire, a hot spot, or smoldering object that would have caused the Fire Sprinkler Heads to activate the fire sprinkler system.

It was later determined that the high temperatures outside had caused even hotter temperature inside the highest points of the building, thus causing the Fire Sprinkler Heads to falsely believe the heat was from a fire.
