What are the most commun water damage causes  in commercial buildings?

Leaking Pipes and Plumbing Problems

A leaking pipe can lead to structural damage aside from abnormal high water bills. Water pipes may look durable and airtight, but they can give in to excessive pressure or they can be destroyed by construction-related activities. If you suspect that there is leak coming from your pipeline or plumbing, call a restoration company like AllAces Cleaning & Restoration for a quick fix.

Faulty Appliances

Faulty appliances such as washing machines (if you own a laundry service company), refrigerator with automatic ice makers, and dishwashers can cause water damage in your commercial building.  Make sure you inspect any appliance in your building regularly to avoid any water-related damage from a faulty appliance.

HVAC Issues

HVAC issues can lead to water damage. HVAC condensate water is harmful for your commercial building. It can be a result of overflow or leak in the collection pan. This is often undetectable until it needs repair. Issues may include flooding and destruction of the HVAC equipment and it can lead to corrosion and replacement of the system. Mould remediation is also sometimes needed.

Natural Disasters

Natural disaster such as heavy thunderstorm or flooding can lead to water damage especially if your commercial building is not protected. Commercial buildings have a greater risk of sustaining water damage when everyone has gone home at night or over weekends. As a commercial building owner, you should take necessary steps to prevent flooding.

What to do?
