Restoring your Commercial Property after a water Loss
Water damage to any building whether it is your home or commercial space can be a traumatic event. When it happens to a commercial space the damages can become more extensive than if it was in your home because there are more liabilities. The first step you are going to want to perform is a risk assessment of the potential damages presented to your staff, occupants, and other personnel. Some of the biggest hazards to look for would be Electrical hazards, slip hazards, and hazards that could present themselves in your HVAC system causing bacterial contamination. Calling a professional to come and help assess the damage is always encouraged.
The second step in assessing a water damage event is to mitigate damages to ensure that secondary damages do not occur. Secondary damages can be identified as mold growth, damages to carpet that cannot be extracted, wall coverings, artwork, critical documents, etc. It is important that area is properly dried, and the humidity is kept to an acceptable level.
