Fitness Center Floods After the Fire Sprinkler System Accidentally Discharges
When the fire sprinkler system in this local fitness center accidentally discharged, the water damage was significant. One false discharge can release hundreds of gallons of water in just under 20 minutes. These numbers increase as the coverage area gets larger, particularly in large buildings and warehouses with more powerful sprinkler systems.
The facilities manager contacted SERVPRO of Bear/New Castle to begin emergency water damage services. Our crews responded immediately and began extracting the standing water and placing equipment necessary to dry the affected areas.
Water penetrated the hardwood floors and traveled under the floor boards in the aerobics room and basketball court. SERVPRO of Bear/New Castle’s specialized floor drying equipment was used to prevent swelling and buckling of the hardwood floors. Some building materials like drywall and flooring were too damaged by water to be restored. SERVPRO of Bear/New Castle’s remediation team removed the damaged materials and hauled them from your property for disposal.
