Common Causes of Commercial Water Loss
Most commercial property owners in University Place, WA assume their property can only suffer significant water damage during torrential downpours and rare flooding from rainstorms. While this can be true, weather isn't the only cause of property damage in Western Washington.
The most common commercial water damage disasters happen from the following:
1.) Sprinkler systems
Some office and retail buildings still have outdated sprinkler systems that work with fire protection systems. While these sprinklers can come in handy during a fire emergency, they can also cause commercial flood damage if they need replacement.
2.) Appliances and Equipment
We see this most often in restaurants and catering halls, as well as businesses that have appliances and equipment that make use of water. If the appliance falls and sends water across your building, especially on a Friday afternoon when no one is in until Monday morning, you may come in to face a water emergency! Unfortunately, this happens A LOT!!
3.) Broken pipes and plumbing
Just like in residential properties, if the plumbing system in your workplace fails, water damage could happen!
