Commercial Water Damage can Affect Stores and Shops in St Francis
Small Business Requiring Rapid Water Removal Rely on SERVPRO
Having your own business comes with many responsibilities, and having to cope with emergencies is one of them. Some, like water damage, can be one of them. When there is a water leak, your business not only has to pay for the lost water, but also faces the possibility of damaged inventory and equipment. When you react to the threat water damage poses to your investment, you typically don't have time to consult with others about what to do. You must act quickly to minimize the existing damage and to prevent larger losses from occurring.
St Francis shops and small stores that have water lines in them are at risk of commercial water damage when those lines and pipes are not maintained on a regular basis. When you do not own the building your enterprise is located in, you most likely rely on your landlord's maintenance crew to tend to such matters. While this may be written in your lease that maintenance of the building falls on the shoulders of your landlord, you should still examine those lines regularly. After reporting anything that seems risky to your landlord, repairs should be made quickly. However, leaks can still happen due to pressure changes in the water main's supply. Leaks are also not the only source of water that can damage a commercial setting, either.
Dampness is often sufficient to damage more delicate pieces of inventory, such as is found in a card shop, stationery store or clothing boutique. SERVPRO uses machines that boost air movement, even in small locations, to speed up the rate of evaporation. Water damage is possible with even slightly raised levels of moisture, meaning that flooding is not always the cause. Moist air can create the perfect environment for secondary water damage to develop. Mold growth can begin rapidly, as can other problems, when humidity levels increase from a leaky pipe, or even from a drain that has cracks in it under the sink in the bathroom.
