Unfortunately, one of the results of protecting your home or business from fire is to use a sprinkler system. Even if the fire is contained to one small area, sprinklers can go off and cause massive amounts of water damage throughout the building. This is necessary to minimize injury and loss of life but makes clean-up that much more difficult.
