Types Of Floods
Although there are many causes of floods, it is also useful to understand the three main categories of floods.
- Slow-onset: These floods come on slowly and can last for several days or even weeks. The bright side is this allows for better forecasting and preparations.
- Rapid-onset: Rapid-onset floods come on quickly and have a shorter duration, usually up to a day or two. Though they come with less warning than a slow-onset flood, but still usually allows for some small preparations.
- Flash flood: A flash flood comes on extremely quickly and with little to no warning. They are usually the most destructive kind of flood.

Consequences Of Flood Damage
The initial consequences of flood damage are most likely already very apparent to you. When your commercial property is damaged by water, you will usually have to vacate the property and likely shut down business for the time being. We recognize this is a huge strain on you and your employees and customers. However, there are other, long-term consequences that can occur if you do not deal with the damage promptly.
- Permanent structural damage: Aside from the initial structural damage that has already taken place, failure to dry and repair the damage immediately can allow the water to compromise the integrity of the structure and cause permanent damage.
- Molding: Mold usually starts its growth process after about 48 hours of the initial event. This is why it is extremely important to dry the property as soon as possible. Once mold has set in, it is difficult to get rid of and can cause serious health issues such as asthma, respiratory distress and mold born diseases.
- Cosmetic damage: Although this is the least of your worries, cosmetic damage is still unsightly and inconvenient, especially when you are trying to conduct business in a professional manner. Quick action can prevent cosmetic damage such as yellowing.
- Long-term displacement: Although you are already put out of your commercial property, this is only temporary. But if the damage is not addressed, you could be out for a long time.
