What Businesses Should Know About Water Damage

Water damage — whether it is caused by floods, sewage backup, a burst pipe or something similar — can wreak havoc on your business. Taking prompt action is crucial to prevent expensive, long-lasting damage.

The Impact of Water Damage

Even a small amount of water and flood damage at your business can have big repercussions, including mold growth, floor and wall damage and inventory loss:

  • Mold: Mold can grow on virtually any surface and cause a myriad of health effects, including an allergic reaction. Some evidence even suggests a link between mold exposure and memory impairment and anxiety. Hidden mold — like mold under flooring after a flood — is especially dangerous, as it can impact air quality.
  • Floor and wall damage: Water can deteriorate and ruin walls and flooring, creating an unsafe surface and leading to expensive repairs or replacements. Wet materials can also attract pests that thrive in wet conditions or feed on wood.
  • Inventory loss: One of the worst effects of commercial and office water damage is the financial loss it can incur through ruined inventory or supplies. This loss can worsen over time if water damage is not corrected.
