Recently, there have been heavy rains in many places! Many residential elevators are still in trouble due to flooding or water seepage at the roof...
Elevator flooding common situations and causes
There are three main types of flooding in elevators:
1. The stormy weather caused the underground garage (basement) to accumulate water, and the accumulated water was poured back into the elevator shaft. The first
2. When the fire sprinkler system of a high-rise building is in operation, the water pipe of the occupant is broken (the occupants forget to turn off the water), and the windows of the public hallway are raining heavily, the stagnant water will flow into the shaft through the hall door ridge.
3. The elevator pit waterproofing system was not well treated and water seepage occurred.
In addition, when the elevator car is under the flooding layer, the accumulated water will flow over the hall sill, which may cause short circuits in the pit and the bottom of the car. When the accumulated water enters the top of the car, the circuit board on the top of the car may be short circuited and burned. The maintenance and replacement work takes a long time and the cost is huge, which directly affects the daily traffic operation of high-rise buildings.
What to do if the lift encounters flooding?
Due to the deep shaft of the elevator, the entrance of each elevator is relatively low level. Once the water accumulates, it is difficult to resist the flow of water into the interior of the elevator. Then, what happened to the public when the elevator was flooded? How should the parties respond?
Please be reminded that if you encounter heavy rain, you should raise your vigilance. If you know that the elevator shaft is flooded, be sure to know that the lift is flooded and you should inform each other not to ride (use) the elevator. In addition, in daily life, we should develop a good sense of safety (such as readily shutting the water, often pay attention to whether the leaking water pipes at home, etc.), which may cause hidden dangers of water on the floor to a minimum.
Note that in the event of an elevator flooding, as the residential area of the elevator, the property department of the building should notify the maintenance company of the suspension of the ladder at the first time, and inform all the residents and the owner of the temporary use (use) of the elevator. In addition, we must take timely measures for drainage and maintenance. After draining the elevator shaft, we must not rush to start the elevator. We should wait until the water is dry before checking to see if there are any safety hazards and then resume operation. At the same time, to remind developers and residential properties, the community should be completed before the construction of waterproof and drainage system facilities to prevent flooding.
