Keep away from moving water.

Just six inches of moving water can knock you off your feet, and a couple of feet can carry away most vehicles. Avoid moving water at all costs.

If you must travel, use extreme caution.

Only travel through flood damaged areas when absolutely necessary. If you must travel, wait till water has stopped moving.

Before the Professionals Arrive

SERVPRO is here to help you We are here to help you

Here are some things to do after a fire, before professionals start the restoration process:

Limit activity and foot traffic in your home. Staying off of carpet, furniture, and upholstery is key to preventing soot, dirt, and other particles from getting trapped all around your home.

If you do need to get around your home quite a bit, put down clean towels or sheets on the floor and furniture.

If possible, change filters in your home to keep dirt and soot from circulating.

Don’t try to wash the walls or carpet — leave that for the professionals to avoid permanent damage.

Don’t try to clean kitchen appliances yourself. After a fire, electrical connections and wiring may be damaged and could cause further problems if not cleaned carefully and correctly.

Don’t eat any food that may have been exposed to the fire and smoke.

Water Damage in Commercial Properties

Water Damage in Commercial Properties

When a commercial property suffers water damage, the business itself suffers. Depending on the amount of damage done, business owners may need to close their business and halt work operations for an extended period of time in order to have the damage repaired. Additionally, when a business is closed to customers, the potential for revenue is lost. Employees may also be unable to go into the space to do their work. Depending on the job, this could mean they are unable to work at all. Water damage in commercial buildings can even be potentially hazardous to people’s health and well-being if there’s mold growth. For mold spores to grow, they need a food source and a warm, moist environment. Both can be provided in cases of water damage, because mold uses building materials like drywall as food. When mold is present, people exposed to it can suffer from negative health effects, such as irritation to eyes, nose, throat, lungs, and skin. If you have asthma or allergies, mold can have a greater negative effect on you. Because of this, it’s essential to have commercial water damage addressed right away. Otherwise, you risk harming anyone who inhabits the damaged space.

Causes of Water Damage in Commercial Properties

When it comes to water damage, the harm can be caused by various things. There are natural causes like flooding and storms and unnatural causes like faulty piping. Businesses typically see more foot traffic than residential properties, so things like toiletry, plumbing, and the HVAC system are used more heavily. This frequent usage makes them wear out quicker, so they’re more susceptible to malfunctions, such as leaky pipes, that can lead to water damage.

If your business is in an area that experiences cold temperatures, then the water pipes for your commercial property are at risk of bursting, which can also result in serious water damage. Pipe bursts happen when the water inside the pipes freezes into ice. When the water turns to ice, it expands in size and places pressure on the pipe. When the pressure becomes too much, it bursts the pipe open and spreads water throughout the space.
