Commercial Water Damage Water damage in a commercial building.

Commercial vs Residential

How is commercial water damage different than residential water damage? Restoration in commercial properties is a highly technical process, and more involved that the restoration of a home.

One of the most obvious differences is the size of the building. Commercial properties usually have more vulnerabilities since they are so much bigger. A bigger building means more water and more to clean.

Another vulnerability of commercial buildings are windows. Windows are one of the most common culprits of water damage.  Unsealed or improperly sealed windows can cause water to come into the building, and cause many problems such as warped wood, mold, and weak walls.

Commercial proprieties generally also have more pipes due to bathrooms, kitchens, etc. Leaky/broken pipes, frozen, blockage and buildup in pipes can cause water damage.

Businesses also have appliances on a larger scale such as HVAC or sprinkler systems that can cause damage.

What to Do Next

Water damage restoration in a commercial property is similar to residential clean-up, just on a large scale. If you are a commercial property owner, do not delay in treating a leaky or broken pipe, clogged toilet, or unsealed window. Water damage can get worse faster in commercial properties.

It is important to contact restoration company as soon as possible to begin extraction, drying, and disinfecting. The longer water damage sits, the more damage can occur.
