Causes of Commercial Water Damage
There’s never a convenient time for flooding or water damage to strike your business. Every hour spent cleaning up is an hour of lost revenue and productivity. When a company suffers a water loss, and everyone is impacted. So here is a list of common water damage causes for commercial buildings.
- Malfunctioning Sprinkler Systems: Fire sprinklers are great and can keep a building safe during a fire, if one accidentally goes off or breaks it can cause substantial water damage to the building, and assets in that building. It is recommended to get your sprinklers tested every few years. It is also beneficial to learn where the shut off is. If you or your building manager do not know where the shut off is, contact us about getting your building prepared with an Emergency Ready Profile.
- Appliances: Just like in a home, most commercial buildings have appliances like hot water heaters, refrigerators, and toilets. All those things have the potential to cause a water loss. Have a plumber check fittings and pipes regularly.
- Backed Up Sewer Lines: Sewer damages are extremely messy, and no one wants to deal with that. It is recommended to get your sewer lines jetted or cleaned every 18 months.
