This could happen to your Business
Water damage usually occurs from flooding due to the weather in the area. But are you aware of other potential water damaging hazards in your business?
Here are some of the typical causes of water damage to commercial buildings.
1. Malfunctioning sprinkler systems. Some older buildings have outdated water sprinkler systems that work in sync with the fire alarm system. But, outdated sprinklers can malfunction and cause major water damage.
2. Damaged appliances and equipment. This cause of commercial flood damage is more common in restaurants and catering facilities, as well as any business that has appliances and equipment that make use of water. If the appliance fails and sends water across your building, especially during late hours when no one is around, you may come back to work and face a water emergency.
3. Broken pipes and plumbing. Just like in your own home, pipes and plumbing can fail, leading to a watery mess.
4. Backed up sewer lines. This potentially dangerous mess is often not thought about, especially in your commercial business. But, it is something that should be taken care of FAST.
