San Diego Commercial Water Damage

2/13/2018 (Permalink)

Here's a photo of a commercial building in Poway that suffered from serious damage. This is a "during the cleanup" shot.

It's true that commercial water damage in San Diego is often the result of floods and water that comes from weather events and storms, especially here in San Diego. But - what many business owners and business space renters forget is that storms and severe weather are not the only cause of floods and water damage to a commercial property. Commercial water damage in San Diego is surprisingly common year-round, and it can have a drastic effect on the operation of your business. Here are some of the more common causes of water damage to commercial buildings.

1. Sprinkler system malfunction

This one we see A LOT! And usually it happens on weekends when one comes in to the office Monday morning to an incredible amount of water damage. Some office and retail buildings have sprinkler systems that work in conjunction with fire protection systems. These sprinklers come in handy during a fire emergency, but they can also cause commercial flood damage if they are faulty or in need of replacement. 

2. Damaged appliances and equipmen

Any business that makes use of appliances or equipment (common in restaurants and catering facilities), can find themselves in a messy water damage situation if an appliance fails and sends water across the building. 

3. Broken pipes and plumbing

If the plumbing system in your workplace fails, the end result could be minor to serious water damage. We've seen it all here at SERVPRO. 

4. Backed up sewer lines 

Another common cause of commercial water damage in San Diego is backed up sewer lines. Often this comes as a surprise. If the sewer line to your building becomes backed up or damaged, there are some potential dangers associated with contaminated Black Water. We have certified IICRC technicians to help.
