Common Water Damage Sources In Commercial Buildings

While office buildings in the Greeley/Windsor lack many water damage risk factors common to other local businesses, many different disasters can still befall even the most prepared companies. Between restroom overflows and malfunctions, pipe leaks and ruptures, sprinkler malfunctions, and other possible problems, your office may be more likely than you think to incur water damage at some point in the future. Here are a few of the most common and severe problems we see in offices locally and nationwide.

Restroom Overflows

Even if your building is equipped with high-quality restroom fixtures, they can still malfunction and cause substantial commercial water damage to your office in Greeley and surrounding areas. Plumbing issues primarily result from ill-maintained fixtures and water lines but can sometimes occur in perfectly functional and maintained objects as well. If a restroom disaster is too much for your staff to handle, call us quickly to prevent additional damage to the area.

Water Line Ruptures

While water lines rarely rupture without good cause, when they do encounter problems, it can be an enormous problem for your office. Water lines are often highly pressurized, and even a small break can quickly inundate an area in water and cause flooding. If you believe that a water line or main has incurred damage in your office building, contact SERVPRO of Greeley/Windsor immediately so that we can handle the issue with expert care.

Sprinkler Problems

While fire safety sprinklers can be an essential defense against fire damage, they also have the potential to cause water damage throughout the structure. Worse still are sprinkler malfunctions, which can trigger when an object comes into contact with the sprinkler or another malfunction occurs. Try to get the sprinklers shut off as quickly as possible if it is a false alarm and be sure to call SERVPRO of Greeley/Windsor so that we can start removing moisture before additional damage can result.
