How the Unexpected Water Damage Could Occur
Our local community knows that SERVPRO of Wesley Chapel has handled numerous residential water damage projects. However, what you might not be as familiar with is our ability to provide water damage cleanup and restoration services for commercial properties. While our company’s job is to clean and restore your home or business after a disaster, we also enjoy providing helpful information for our community. Listed below are some of the most common causes of a water damage done to your commercial facility.
Storm season around here in our neck of the woods is simply common knowledge to most all residents. Whether it be a large rains storm or a full-on hurricane, water damage is rather common as an aftermath from a storm. It can be anything from flooding in multiple rooms of your property, a broken window that just opened allowing water to enter your building, or a fallen tree that harmed your exterior.
- Plumbing mishaps or Backup
Pipes being clogged or backed up from a variety of things- food, grease, paper, plastic items, etc.- can create pressure that causes an overflowing appliance. Whether it be the toilet in your bathroom or the sink in your new breakroom, all can be affected by a pipe backup and one major way your business or commercial property can have water damage.
- Foundation Cracks
Your commercial facility can fall in a world of damage simply because of a crack in your foundation. It can be a small crack that goes unnoticed, or a major weak spot. When your foundation cracks it allows water to creep in and begin doing damage. Not only could it cause you water damage but if materials absorb that water it can lead to mold growth.
- Pipe Bursts
A pipe burst is one of the most common water damages causes we have seen here at SERVPRO. Pipe bursts are sometimes an inevitable disaster however having regular maintenance done to your plumbing can help alleviate the potential pipe burst in your facility. In addition, taking the proper measure to make sure your plumbing does not get clogged by inappropriate items can help you prevent a pipe burst disaster on your property.
When the unexpected happens, give us a call. We can make your commercial disaster “Like it never even happened.”
