Leading Causes to Commercial Water Damages

7/30/2019 (Permalink)

Most are familiar with the work us here at SERVPRO of Hernando County do for home owners when they have water damage. However, did you know we also treat large commercial facilities as well? We are able to handle all sizes of water disasters, and as a part of our cleaning and restoration duty we are here to educate our community. Listed below are some of the most common reasons water damages occur.

  • Weather

Living in Florida comes with the common knowledge of how brutal storm season can be. Water damages done to commercial buildings happen for many reasons but when a massive storm or hurricane blows through, there’s a high potential your space might have water damage. A fallen tree crashed into your exterior leaving you exposed, flooding all throughout your interior, or even a broken window that now has allowed access for water, it is all possible.

  • Plumbing Backup of Mishap

An overflowing sink or toilet is rather common in your home, but it can also occur in your commercial space. When a pipe is clogged or backed up the easiest way for water to escape is through back up through the drain, leaving you with a sopping wet mess. Backups are common when a pipe has become clogged by a variety of materials and objects: food, grease, paper, clothes.

  • Foundation Cracks

Something that mostly goes unnoticed, your buildings foundation. It does not have to be a large detrimental crack that stands out greatly, but often times it’s a smaller crack that allows water to seep in. Water that has entered through your foundation not only allows for water damages but if the water is absorbed by any materials there is a high chance mold growth will develop, making the damages even worse.

  • Pipe Bursts

Also caused by a number of things, a pipe burst is one of the most frequent causes of water damages we see here at SERVPRO. Whether it was a large clog backup, a loose fitting or old pipe materials, it can create a burst. Having a plumber inspect your facility’s plumbing can help you greatly when attempting to avoid a pipe burst or water damages in general.

When the unexpected happens, give us here at SERVPRO of Hernando County a call to make your damages “Like it never even happened.”
