This water damage was at a local library in Upland, Ca. This was a very important job for us to be a part of because we value education, and knowledge. Without these books our future generations would be lost so we did everything in our power to restore any damaged books and get this library back in business as soon as we could. Water and fire are books biggest enemies and were hear to help restore and save the knowledge inside these books. Drying this commercial building was a bit of a challenge because of the racks filled with books, so we had to dry around them, and had to even remove a few to make sure no water was still trapped underneath them. By the end of the drying, SERVPRO of Upland/San Antonio Heights made it "Like it never even happened."

Slab leak in commercial building Carpet affected by water damage at an apartment complex.

This damage was a water damage which affected flooring and walls at the Victorville Casa Bella apartments earlier this year. Many of these incidents happen year around due to old piping, slow leaks, or simply it rained too much and the roof couldn't handle it. In this particular event there was a slab leak which caused massive amounts of water to affect a few units in the apartment complex. Carpets needed to be removed along with the padding underneath, walls needed to be cut to ensure interior drying. Inside the walls there was wet insulation which needed to be removed and replaced as well. In most cases this is something that can be taken care of within a few weeks, from start to finish. One thing is for sure is that SERVPRO of Upland/San Antonio Heights will make it "Like it never even happened."

Top 5 causes of commercial water damage

8/29/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial water damage in clothing store.

Flooding can happen very quickly. What starts out as a small storm can suddenly turn into something larger, and cause a lot more damage than anyone expected. If your commercial property isn’t in pristine condition, there is a chance that water damage will occur. For example, a small leak on the roof can turn into a large downpour of water that floods an entire section of the property.

Damaged appliances. Pretty much every office building has a kitchen or a break room. And typically these rooms have a refrigerator and possibly a dishwasher. When these appliances fail, they can leak a significant amount of water, flooding the entire room or more.

Backed up sewer lines. Bathrooms are another source of possible problems. It is not uncommon for the sewer lines to get backed up, releasing contaminated water into the building. This type of water damage is extremely dangerous because the water is filled with hazardous waste and other contaminants.

Malfunctioning sprinklers. By law, all commercial properties must be equipped with an overhead sprinkler system. This system works in conjunction with the fire alarm, and is typically activated when the fire alarm goes off. This can cause water damage in two ways. First, as we mentioned in a previous blog post, any time there is a fire and the sprinklers activate, there will be water damage. And second, the sprinkler system can malfunction and activate on its own. When this happens, significant water damage can occur because of the fact that the sprinkler system covers the entire building.

Broken pipes. Broken or cracked pipes are very common in commercial buildings, especially as they age. When these pipes burst open, water rushes out of them, spraying throughout the building. This can cause damage to the ceiling, walls, and flooring, not to mention any furniture or electronics that get in the water’s way.

When we arrive to a commercial water damage

Water damage in a commercial property.

Obviously you want to keep an eye on the list above. Ongoing maintenance to your commercial property is key to not having water related issues. But if water damage does happen anywhere on your property, you need to take immediate action. After calling your insurance provider, you need to contact a reliable water damage restoration company, like us. And once we are on the job, we get right to work by doing the following:

First we will thoroughly inspect the property. We will find out what caused the damage and make sure that the water has stopped flowing. We will also determine if the water is contaminated or not. During this stage we remove all furniture that has been affected, while trying to salvage as much as possible.
Next we begin the water extraction process. We use pumps and other vacuums to remove all water from the property.

Once all the water is removed, we start the drying process. If everything is not dried properly, problems occur that result in longer recovery and escalating restoration costs. We set up and monitor the drying process through every phase to ensure that proper drying occurs. We will document moisture levels, provide moisture maps, and photograph drying for the insurance provider. When the property has been thoroughly dried, we start the sanitation process. We have to make sure everything is cleaned and sanitized because of the mold and other contaminates that form due to standing water. Water damage isn’t something that you want to happen on your commercial property. But when it does, you want to hire the right company to clean up the damage and get your business back to normal as quickly as possible. Call us today to put a disaster response plan in place.

Commercial damages

Commercial water damage.

When business owners visualize water damage, they often picture a massive storm wiping out power lines, flooding offices, and shutting down businesses for days at a time. It is true that commercial water damage is often the result of floods and water that stems from weather events and storms. However, many entrepreneurs and business space renters forget that storms and severe weather aren't the only causes of floods and water damage. Here are some of the typical causes of water damage to commercial buildings. 

1. Malfunctioning sprinkler systems 
Some older office and retail buildings still have outdated sprinkler systems that work in conjunction with fire protection systems. While such sprinklers can come in handy during a fire emergency, they can also cause commercial flood damage if they are faulty or in need of replacement. This could easily damage inventory and business assets. 

2. Damaged appliances and equipment This cause of commercial flood damage is more common in restaurants and catering facilities, as well as any business that has appliances and equipment that make use of water. If the appliance fails and sends water across your building, especially during late hours when no one is around, you may come back to work and face a water emergency. 

3. Broken pipes and plumbing 
Just like in a residence, if the plumbing system in your workplace fails water damage could be the result. 

4. Backed up sewer lines 
This is another cause of commercial water damage that often catches business owners by surprise. Should the sewer line to your building back up or become damaged, realize the potential dangers of contaminated Black Water which can cause health effects and ruin products and office furnishings.
