Fire Damage Causes Water Damage
Most people don’t think about it until a fire happens to them, but fire and water damage almost always go hand-in-hand. For this reason, it is necessary for fire restoration services to specialize in water clean-up too! Here are just a few ways fires can lead to water damage in your Norwood, MA commercial or residential property:
For most commercial building owners, the primary cause of water issues following a fire comes from the tool used to douse the fire, the hose. Fire hoses emit gallons of water per minute at an extremely high pressure. Even if it does not take long for firefighters to extinguish a blaze, your building may sustain considerable water damage and property loss.
Some blazes become so hot that they begin to melt certain metals. If the fire in your building reaches the melting points of copper you will find yourself dealing with both fire and water damage.
Sprinkler systems will put out a fire. Unfortunately, they will cause water damage too. In some instances they may flood the property as well.
