Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Commercial VS Residential

3/17/2021 (Permalink)

Commercial water damage is very different from residential damage. The main difference is the type of building. Commercial buildings are usually bigger than residential areas so a bigger building means more water. Commercial buildings are also used for business use. Commercial and residential water damage has different causes. Though there are similarities, there are different things to pay attention to. In addition, the water damage restoration process varies between commercial and residential properties.

Water damage restoration in a commercial property is similar to residential cleanup; however, it can be on a much larger scale. Timing is everything especially with water damage in a commercial property. Have you ever had a small pipe leak or clogged toilet, but ignored it? Later the pipe bursts or the toilet overflows and water will go everywhere. If this happens at your commercial property and you are the property manager or owner, don’t delay treating a leaky pipe or clogged toilet. Commercial property water damage can get worse faster than residential water damage. This is due to the size of the building, increased water use, and other potential risks. It’s critical to contact SERVPRO Culpeper & Fauquier Counties, your water damage restoration professionals, to treat the damage.

It’s important to begin the process of extraction, drying, and disinfecting immediately. Many individuals believe they can carry out these processes alone, but it is best for you and your business to trust experts to clean up the mess. If these steps aren’t carried out properly or fast enough, the chance of mold growth compounds the damage and increases the costs of repairs. Your commercial property can also lose value due to damage. In addition, the worse the water damage gets the longer the cleanup process. This can affect customers and business, so save yourself the time and the hassle and take care of the damage today. SERVPRO of Culpeper & Fauquier Counties is an expert in water damage restoration, so trust them to make it "Like it never even happened."
