Strategies for defending against water damage

Post# A569317 · Edmonds, WA USA, Washington · Posted by: biomanagement246

Water can be a true adversary to a business. When this assailant descends on a facility, it can do some real damage -- often impacting wood floors, mats, ceilings, walls, supplies, computers and other electronics. You can implement a strategy to defend against possible water damage by understanding what causes these events.
Water damage often occurs from heavy rain, resulting in roof leaks, or pipe failure due to wear and tear, poor maintenance and upkeep, and pipes bursting after freezing. Also, check with your insurance agent to confirm you have the proper coverage before a loss occurs.
Check plumbing. Look for leaking fixtures, dripping and deteriorating pipes, (including fire sprinkler systems), clogged drains, and defective water-drainage systems. Inspect foundations and exterior walls. Look for cracks in the foundation and walls where water can gain access to your building.

Plan to inspect your pipes. If your facility is going to be unoccupied for more than 24 hours, inspect your pipes once a day for freezing. Keep your heat on. If you close during the holidays, heating expenses incurred while closed are far less costly than having to close your facility for water damage repair.
