Commercial Water Damage
Water damage can affect and halt your business for days. However, many business owners and entrepreneurs sometimes forget that floods and severe weather aren’t the only culprits of water damage to a business. Here are some typical causes of water damage that happen to business commercial buildings.
- Malfunctioning sprinklers
Many older office and retail buildings might have outdated sprinkler systems where they work in conjunction with fire protection systems. They are good whenever they is a fire emergency, however, they can also cause commercial flood damage if they are faulty and in need of a replacement. These sprinkler systems should be checked annually so that they do not damage business assets or inventory.
- Damaged appliances and equipment
A lot of causes of flood damage are from faulty appliances and equipment such as coffee machines or any machines that involve water. Restaurants and catering facilities are more commonly prone to these problems but any break room facility in businesses can also run into these problems and damage the surrounding area.
- Pipe and plumbing failure
Pipes and plumbing issues are always a big problem, whether it is at a commercial or at a residential building. If the pipes or plumbing fails, water damage could be a result or occur so immediately shut off the water and contact SERVPRO for a thorough inspection and assessment.
