Top Three Places To Check For Water Damage In Your Business

2/4/2020 (Permalink)

Water damage within your business can not only cause health risks to your employees but also can lead to costly damages that are time-consuming to fix. In order to avoid the risks and costs of water damage, it is important to stay on top of the potential areas water buildup can develop and inspect your business often. Within a business, there are many areas that are common to be susceptible to water damage and mold. SERVPRO of Hermitage/Donelson is here to list the top places to check for damages in your business! 

  • The roof and ground

After storms and flash flood warnings, it is common that water damage can appear on your business’s property. This damage can affect the foundation of your building, which is an expensive fix. After storms, ensure that you inspect gutters and rain spouts, as well as water pooling on the ground or roof. The pooling of water can lead to a weak foundation or an unsturdy roof. 

  • Office equipment

The dishwasher, water heater, and toilets can all be easily susceptible to water damage. All of these pieces of equipment have the potential to leak and cause damage to your business. These appliances need to be regularly maintained in order to avoid damage that may buildup over time. 

  • Carpeting or flooring

If you notice a musty smell, you may have mold in your business due to unaddressed water 

damage. Rooms within your office that have poor ventilation can be common areas for this mold to develop. Check beneath flooring and carpet and consistently change out the air filters in your business in order to avoid potential health effects and allergies in your employees.

If you suspect water damage or mold in your business, it is best to let a professional handle the problem. A team with the proper equipment, like SERVPRO of Hermitage/Donelson, can use the correct tools and ensure that the problem is completely addressed and is unlikely to return.
