About Commercial Water Damage

Commercial property water damage is an unfortunate, but not uncommon event. It can stop business operations, put the health of you and your occupants at risk, and can cause extensive property damage.

Water damage to commercial buildings is often far more extensive than in residential buildings, given the size and complexity of the mechanical systems in commercial or industrial properties.

Commercial buildings typically have larger structures, more people and employees, and have more potentially expensive equipment than homes. Fortunately, business owners can find water damage early on and its impacts can be mitigated.

 Commercial Water Damage:

Many businesses suffer costly losses caused by water leaks. Water can be very destructive whether it seeps from a loose fitting or gushes from a ruptured main. While the standard commercial property policy excludes many water-related losses, it does cover damage caused by the typical burst pipe.

Failure of older plumbing systems and improperly maintained sprinkler systems can result in significant damage to property and interruption of business operations.

Plumbing Leaks

Plumbing leaks are a very common source of commercial water damage. Leaks occur when pipes burst, appliance hoses rupture or fire-suppression sprinkler systems activate after fire and douse the building in water.

In freezing temperatures, pipes can also spontaneously leak due to frozen water passage. Burst pipes are often hard to spot—they aren’t as obvious from the surface and may not cause pools of open standing water.

Telltale signs of plumbing leaks are water stains near piped areas or musty smells developing. Sometimes standing water will collect causing drips from the ceiling or pools of water on the floor.

In many cases, commercial property insurance can cover the cost of sudden pipe bursts, faulty appliances or water damage from sprinkler systems due to property fire.
