Wilton Manors Fire Loss Water Damage?

Aftermath of a Fire Loss Water Damage in Wilton Manors

Fire Loss Water Damage?

When a fire occurs in Wilton Manors, fire loss water damage is peering right around the corner.  Unfortunately, fire loss water damage can follow a fire because water plays a heavy roll in taking a raging house or business fire down.  Here are a couple of ideas you might not have considered.

Water damage follows fire damage

Since water is usually the main combatant to put out fires, whatever is on fire or near the fire is bound to get wet.  Burnt and wet isn’t ever a good combination, but one you should be expecting and be ready for in the unfortunate case of a fire loss water damage.

  • Fires can lead to damaged or burst pipes which can cause flooding at a rapid rate. Especially if the fire is still going on, it would be incredibly hard to get to and fix the water leak fast enough to prevent further damage.
  • Sprinkler systems react to the fires and help to put them out but can also lead to gallons of water all over your home or business. These systems never discriminate, so EVERYTHING in the surrounding area usually gets a downpour.  Even worse, sometimes these systems aren’t cleaned regularly, so the first parts of water than shoot out can be very discolored or dirty.
  • Fire fighters do just that, they fight fires! Water is their primary ammunition, so everything in, around or near your home or business that is engulfed in flames will be drowned out by water shot out at what can be up to 24 gallons per minute.

Although nobody is truly ever ready for a disaster like a fire or like a flood, it doesn’t hurt to have the knowledge and prepared mindset to what one would face during a fire.  All three of these mentioned aspects could definitely work together to leave your home or business soaked, but it is there for your structures well being.
