Flooding at Your Commercial Property?

10/25/2021 (Permalink)

Commercial properties cannot afford to be shut down due to water damage. We've seen water damage caused by everything from leaking coffee maker lines to a sink left running however, in general, it is caused by these common scenarios.

Appliance Malfunction. These days, what office doesn't have a break room with a refrigerator and a coffee maker?  When these appliances fail, they can leak a significant amount of water, flooding the entire room or more.

Backed up sewer lines. Public bathrooms get a lot of use and it is not uncommon for the sewer lines to get backed up, releasing dirty water into the building. When this happens, professional clean up is required, as the water can be contaminated with harmful bacteria.

Malfunctioning sprinkler system. All commercial properties are required to have a sprinkler system and because of this, many lives are saved. However, any time the fire alarm is activated, the sprinkler system discharges, creating flooding in the building.  We've also seen scenarios in which the sprinkler system has malfunctioned and activated on its own. When this happens, water damage is widespread throughout the building. 

Broken pipes. It's common to find broken or cracked pipes in a commercial structure, especially an older one. When this occurs, not only might one business be affected, but also all of the businesses who share the building.
