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.
