Commercial Water Damage-3 Items A Business Needs To Check
When a company suffers a water loss, everyone involved is impacted. SERVPRO® of Henderson/Boulder City has compiled a list of common water damage culprits for commercial buildings. Here are the top 3 items you should check on regularly within your business.
- Malfunctioning Sprinkler Systems - Fire sprinklers are fantastic and can keep a building safe during a fire, however, if one accidentally goes off or breaks, it can cause substantial water damage to the building, as well as to any assets in that building. It is recommended to get your fire sprinklers tested every 2-4 years. Learn where the water shut off valve (s) are located.
- Appliances - Just like in a residential home, most commercial buildings have appliances like hot water heaters, refrigerators, sinks and toilets. All those things have the potential to cause a water loss. Implement a commercial maintenance program with a plumber and have them check fittings and pipes on a set semi-annual schedule.
- Backed up sewer lines - Sewer damages are extremely messy and can cause real problems if not taken care of properly. It is highly recommended to get your sewer lines jetted or cleaned every 18 to 24 months.
