Water damage at your business can be avoided - here's what to watch out for and how we can help!
Water damage in a workplace could prevent you from continuing business, and can also put the safety and health of your employees at risk. As soon as you see signs of water damage at your business, take action immediately by calling West Tennessee Restoration.
Commercial water damage restoration, typically, is a more complex procedure than residential restoration. Due to the size and construction of commercial buildings, the damage, spaces, and occupants all affect how the restoration process takes place. Additionally, there is even more pressure to hit time markers as the business needs to get back to 100% capacity as soon as possible.
Sometimes water damage is unpreventable, due to floods, unexpected water pipe leaks, ceiling damage, etc. However, many problems can be averted in advance if the cause of the water damage is found early.
MOST COMMON CAUSES OF COMMERCIAL WATER DAMAGE
PIPE DAMAGE: Cracked or disconnected pipes can stem from several reasons, deterioration, sudden water pressure changes, or exposure to cold weather. If you see water stains on ceilings, walls or floors, bulges in walls, loose or cracked tiles, or detect a musty smell, these are all signs of damaged pipes. West Tennessee Restoration uses leak detection equipment to pinpoint the problem and has the expert repair crew to fix it. Call (731) 660-9090 or (901) 395-3466.
LEAKY ROOF: Heavy rains, ice and snow, poor roof materials or workmanship, or simply old age can all result in roof leaks. A roof leak will cause ceiling damage, mildew and mold issues. In addition, roof leaks are fire hazards due to shorted wires. The structural integrity of your building can also be compromised. When you see signs of a roof leak, call West Tennessee Restoration as soon as possible at (731) 660-9090 or (901) 395-3466.
WINDOW DAMAGE: In commercial buildings, improperly sealed windows can often cause water damage. These compromised windows allow moisture to seep in, triggering a series of problems including warped wood, damaged drywall, and mold build-up. Caulk breaks down over time, and a quick inspection by West Tennessee Restoration can determine if it's time for a window seal update. Call (731) 660-9090 or (901) 395-3466.
HVAC PROBLEMS: As you are well aware, HVAC systems work by cooling or heating the air, then delivering it through a series of ducts. Over time however, ducts are damaged or simply wear out. The result can be a leak. West Tennessee Restoration recommends regular HVAC system checks, as well as regular cleaning to remove excess water from condensation reservoirs. Call (731) 660-9090 or (901) 395-3466.
SEWER CLOGS, SPRINKLER SYSTEM LEAKS, and other issues specific to certain industrial applications can also cause water damage.
