Most houses in the US have emergency water sprinklers attached to the ceilings to act as a preventative measure against fire and smoke. But whilst the threat of the fire may be eradicated, the water stays and if not removed on a timely basis can give birth to further complications such as excessive moisture, mold and bacterial growth.

Here at Restoration House in Brea, we recognize sprinkler water damage as a major threat to one’s property and belongings. That is why we have a completely separate section where we deal solely with water damage caused by water sprinklers.

The water from a sprinkler is sprayed to cover a wide surface area. This makes it easier to be absorbed by walls and electrical appliances, while making it extremely difficult to remove. After the sprinklers go off, the overall moisture content inside your house increases to the point of saturation. That is a very dangerous scenario as the effects of using any household appliance or equipment under these circumstances can be catastrophic.

The wooden walls inside American homes are not known for their water repellent qualities. If they absorb too much water, they can shatter even under low pressure impact. In addition, there are pockets insides walls due to which water stagnates. .

This stagnation provides optimum conditions for bacteria and germs to infest and copulate. Not only that, there is a chance of mold formation, which can slowly eat up the wood and are vectors for some of the most dangerous diseases known to man. Individuals in your house who particularly have a weak immune system are highly susceptible to such diseases.

Mildewcides, insecticides and pesticides of the highest quality are used to sterilise and clean any sort of bacterial or fungal cretins that pose a threat to your physical health. The brands that we use prevent formation of mold and other bacteria for long periods of time. We guarantee that after our workers are done with their jobs, there will be no unwanted bacteria or parasitic infestations inside or outside your property.

The Process: How We Respond to Distress Calls

When we receive a distress call alerting us to water sprinkler or similar damages, we immediately follow up by ascertaining if a fire caused the sprinklers to go off or just smoke and the water released must be removed immediately.

Keep yourself out of harm’s way and don’t make decisions on your own; do not take matter in your own hands other than following the dos and don’ts we have highlighted above. Our trained workforce will arrive in 30 minutes or less to assess the situation and start working on a solution. Just call us at (714) 494-1133 and we will cater to your needs without hesitation.

If the fire hasn’t spread out of control, it can be easily extinguished. The damage done needs to be cleared and restored, and the smoke that ensues also needs to be sucked out efficiently. Completely eliminating the fire hazard is crucial as we cannot work towards removing the water.

Since our inception many years back, our methods have constantly been updated to face new challenges that arise due to more modern styles of constructions and home building. Here are the steps we take when it comes to water sprinkler damage restoration:

1. Scout
Our response team brings the finest group of firefighters along with them to deal with any sort of fire damage and restore items that may be damaged due to it. Salvaging your items is the easy part; the location of the fire and the scouting the place to find those secret spots where water will be accumulated isn’t as easy.

We perform tasks simultaneously; there’s a team who combats the fire, a team to handle the sprinkler water damage, and a representative who will be explaining to you our process and exactly how much labor, equipment and resources that will be needed to find the desired solution. This way, we save you valuable time and money while putting your worries at ease.

2. Water Removal
The team responsible for the sprinkler water will first remove all your belongings which could be further harmed or damaged after prolonged exposure to water. They will then hunt and look for places where water has accumulated. Using state of the art equipment such as air blowers and vacuum pumps, they will remove all water bodies that could become stagnant and contaminated.

Even though the water is clean, over extended periods of time, it can lead to bacteria and mold formation which can be extremely detrimental to your health. And the long term effects of such a situation are horrendously life threatening.

3. Property Restoration
There are always things inside a house or office that can be damaged after coming into contact with water just once, such as documents, furniture, clothing etc. While we cannot vouch for bringing these back to their original condition, but other goods that can be restored or are still unharmed by the water will be immediately relocated to our safe house until the damage and restoration is completely taken care of.

Our fully equipped moving vans help us move all your goods safely without any hiccups at all.. Your goods are kept under a watchful eye until we have restored your space.

We have many years of experience under our belt and we guarantee the safety of all your goods under our watch.

4. Decontamination
The need for decontamination is not immediate as sprinkler water is clean. However, just to play it safe, we use high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) to filter and purify the air and surroundings your living space.

If we do not do this, the risk of mold formation along with other bacteria becomes very high resulting in illness and diseases that can easily spread from person to person. The risk is even higher for people with weaker immune systems.

Drying and Dehumidification
This is perhaps the most important step of water sprinkler damage restoration as the entire area needs to be dried before normal life can resume or your belongings can be brought back.

If the place is not dried completely and the humidity levels not brought back to normal, we do not recommend you use any electrical equipment and appliances as the moisture in the air will cause them to malfunction which can lead to an electric shock.

With the help of an intricate and detailed system of air blowers, dehumidification units and heaters, we eradicate the presence of excess water vapours present indoors and we have special sensors that constantly monitor and report that information to us.

There are places inside buildings where there is a heavy concentration of electrical wiring and units. Those places need to be given special care as even a small short circuit can burn down your entire house in a matter of minutes.

Carpets, rugs, sockets, circuits, appliances and other equipment which pose a hazard if left in contact with water for extended periods of time will be removed before we begin the restoration process, so that no unforeseen calamity befalls you or our workers for that matter, while they patch your place back to its original condition.

Our number one priority is your safety, satisfaction and peace of mind. This is something we actively instil in our workers so that they can perform every task as efficiently as possible.

We have a 24/7 phone call service so do not hesitate to call us at (714) 494-1133 to let us handle all your restoration troubles and worries.
