Common Causes of Commercial Water Damage
Aside from severe weather and water damage from rainfall, there are many common causes of commercial water damage. When water damage strikes your commercial property, it is important to quickly identify the source in order to effectively remediate the problem and assess the damages.
Top Culprits of Water Damage
It is very common for pipes to break and even burst. Water damage from pipes can be difficult to identify. Some signs that you have busted pipes in your commercial property include foul odors, water-like stains on ceilings and walls, and structural cracks in walls and flooring.
Roof damage is one of the more difficult culprits to determine. When the roof of your commercial property has been damaged, water can seep in from outside through even the smallest cracks and crevices and create extensive damages that can be very challenging to remediate. If you suspect water from roof damage, you want to take action as quickly as possible to avoid further structural damage.
Damaged HVAC System
HVAC system damage is among the most common causes of commercial water damage. Part of maintaining your HVAC system is regularly inspecting for any potential damages or health hazards. When your HVAC begins to wear out or is somehow damaged unexpectedly, water leakage can begin, rapidly spreading water throughout your property and posing new health risks.
If any windows throughout your property are not sealing properly or are cracked and damaged in some way, you will likely be dealing with some water damage and spreading mold following your next rainstorm. While these damages are often the least extensive form of water damage, they still must be addressed in a timely manner.
