On the day before Thanksgiving around 4 P.M. we got a call that Ross College of Grand Rapids had suffered a water loss from a fire suppression sprinkler breaking. Despite being late in the day before a holiday, we were on the scene in a matter of minutes. Water poured out of the fire suppression system for 15 minutes, while that may not seem like a long time, it's an eternity with how fast water can pour out of a broken sprinkler head.

We had three crews on the scene to start mitigation services, and got to work immediately extracting an impressive amount of standing water from the main floor and basement. Water had made its way into the walls and in some areas of the basement ceiling. We ended up setting up over 100 air movers to dry the walls and ceiling throughout the building, that ran for nearly three days. In total over 3,000 sq feet of commercial property was damaged from only 15 minutes of water running through the broken sprinkler head.

When dealing with a water loss, time is a serious factor in how much damage can be prevented. When time is of the essence there's no one better to call than SERVPRO of NE Grand Rapids, Ionia, Montcalm Counties and Big Rapids/Fremont.
