Water Damage Restoration for the Following Businesses
A precipitating event is the initial incident where the water damage occurred. There are endless ways water can work its way into your property. Although how it happened probably isn’t your top concern, it is of interest to us as it can help us avoid a repeat incident.
- Storm flooding and heavy rainfall: Although storm flooding can occur anytime and anywhere, it is especially common in geographical areas where there is a prominent storm season.
- Leaky roof: Even the most minor rainfall can cause a big problem when you have a leaky roof.
- Leaky plumbing and pipes: Leaking water from a sink or bath tub can cause minor to severe water damage. It’s usually a quick fix but needs to be dealt with promptly.
- Gutters: Gutters are intended to direct water away from your property, but when they get blocked by leave and other debris, they can have the opposite effect.
- Sewage backup: A sewage backup is a restaurant owner’s worst nightmare. Water from sewage backups is generally black water (water that contains harmful bacteria such as e coli) and can spread disease if not cleared and cleaned properly.
Effects Of Water Damage To Your Restaurant
Both the immediately apparent and the unseen damage to your restaurant are significant and need to be addressed. Although you may think you are able to clear the water on your own, other issues may lurk beneath the surface and cause you problems months or years down the road. Some effects of water damage include:
- Cosmetic damages: Although initially this may not be your biggest concern, it can have an adverse effect on your business. Customers generally do not want to dine in a restaurant where there is an odor or stains.
- Structural damage: Your restaurant has likely suffered some form of structural damage from the precipitating even, but you do not have to let this become an ongoing problem. Fast service can prevent long-term structural damage from occurring or worsening.
- Displacement and loss of business: If the water damage is anything more than the most minor cases, you will probably need to shut down your restaurant for some amount of time. Our goal is to fix the problem and get you back to business as usual as quickly as possible.
- Health and safety concerns: Running a restaurant, you already know that health and safety is of utmost importance. Just like food handling safety, drying and cleaning water damage is crucial to the integrity of your business. Untreated water damage can lead to mold and even the spread of disease. Mold growth usually begins within 48 hours of the precipitating event, so it is important that you get your restaurant seen quickly.
