Fire sprinkler systems: Reduce the risk of unexpected water damage
February 10, 2016
Help minimize unexpected water damage from your fire sprinkler system. Water damage is a significant source of property claims for commercial properties such as hotels, office buildings, shopping malls and retail structures. Inspection, testing and maintenance of fire sprinkler systems — along with adequate building heat — can help reduce the risk of future water damage.
An automatic fire sprinkler system is one of the most important fire protection features in a building. However — if not properly maintained or afforded adequate heat — fire protection systems may fail. A failure could result in disaster if a fire occurred, or tremendous water damage if water is unexpectedly released.
