Commercial property is susceptible to the same challenges in Fort Worth, TX, as a home, such as flooding, fire, and storm damage. Many commercial locations have an added layer of protection such as fire sprinklers. Fire sprinklers may save your business space from complete fire devastation. On the other hand, you could have to contend with the water damage fire sprinklers create.


Why Fire Sprinklers May Rain Down


Fire sprinklers may activate due to sensitivity to smoke or an actual fire. They can also cause chaos due to broken pipes in the cold winter months, so care and maintenance is advised. If the fire sprinklers ran in your business locale, it is recommended you contact a commercial water restoration professional to assist in an efficient and effective water cleanup.


How You Can Help Your Restoration Specialists


These specialists can manage the restoration process, but you can complement their efforts with these two time-sensitive steps.

1. Don’t Touch – Though the immediate reaction may be to hustle and remove contents affected by water, you may want to let the professionals lead this charge. Restoration specialists can work closely with your insurance company, so it may be best to let them view the flooding in its original state.

2. Document – As you await the restoration professional’s arrival, it is an opportune time to take photos and videos of the water damage. Try to document as much of the saturation as possible. These measures can let the specialists view the full extent of the compromised building and materials, especially if there is a time differential from actual flooding and their arrival.

Once the commercial water restoration professionals are onsite at your business, the cleanup process can swiftly begin. Your sustained effort of “don’t touch” and “document” may be a great support to these specialists in their work with your insurance company and in restoring your commercial property affected by water damage.
