Is Your Ravenna Business Fire Suppression System Safe From The Cold Weather?
A fire suppression system in your Ravenna business is imperative for fire safety and minimizing damages from a fire, but it can cause extreme amounts of water damage if a pipe freezes and cracks or bursts. Recently we received a call from a facility after hours that fell victim to this scenario. 13 spaces were affected after their fire suppression line broke in their break room, affecting ceiling tiles and drywall, and then spreading to multiple other rooms with commercial grade carpet and vinyl flooring. Frozen pipes occur for two basic reasons, installation of pipes in an unheated space without adequate protection, and/or insufficient heat in the area of the freeze. To combat this, have your system checked to make sure it is properly insulated and protected from the elements.
