Not just residential, Commercial too!
Water damage that isn’t handled quickly can hurt your business and cause possible closing for a period of time. Your business is at its best when fully operational. There are some ways to stay ahead of water damage by identifying some causes that are common, and addressing them before the disaster hits.
- Pipes- Having a broken pipe can lead to serious water damage in any building. Deterioration, freezing temperatures, and pressure changed can all lead to a broken pipe. On top of the water damage that this can cause and water damage untreated creates a possible mold issue.
- Improperly sealed exterior windows, doors, garages etc…- Water can find its way in even in smaller spaces like exterior exits that are not properly sealed. Even the small amounts that can get in, if left unchecked could cause mold growth and damage to wood or drywall.
- HVAC- Having a heating and cooling system is essential for keeping your business running comfortably. Unfortunately, if an HVAC system isn’t properly maintained it can cause clogged ducts or the wearing down of the ducts resulting in leaks and water damage inside of the walls and ceilings.
During the winter months when the temperatures are significantly low, that can accelerate damage to HVAC system, exterior windows, and especially pipes.
