Most commercial and industrial settings have emergency sprinkler systems to protect from fire. These systems automatically spray water when a rise in temperature is detected which indicates a fire.
Many people don’t give a second thought to their sprinkler system until it is activated, at which point the average sprinkler system discharges between 20 and 40 gallons of water each minute it is running.
Even a very brief activation due to a very small fire, a malfunction, or a false alarm, can leave behind enough water to get into machines and equipment - forming a layer of surface rust on metal which can be challenging to remove.
