Winter is here, and so are the freezing temperatures. Frigid conditions can freeze and damage internal plumbing systems. This can also affect larger commercial systems, such as fire suppression system pipes.  Depending on pressure, a fire suppression sprinkler head can release up to almost 4 gallons per minute. Broken sprinkler pipes can deliver even more, causing substantial water damage in a commercial building in a short amount of time.

Having fire suppression systems inspected on regular basis is an important way to prevent such damage. The NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) recommends that these systems are inspected 4 times a year. A qualified inspector will check the main components of the system such as the sprinkler heads, valves, and piping to ensure everything is in good working order.

Making a plan in case of an emergency is very important. SERVPRO of Casper will build an Emergency Ready Profile (ERP) for your commercial property at no cost to you. If your building sustains water damage from your suppression system (or any other cause), you will have a guide to utility shut-offs for your building, and key emergency contacts, ready at hand. Call SERVPRO of Casper today to arrange for a free Profile.
