As a commercial property owner, there are five things you must know about water emergency.
1. It Is Unavoidable
Plumbing, sprinkler systems, sewers, and appliances are manufactured and so, they are prone to damage. A surprise leak can soak your floors, walls, basement, and ceiling.
2. Damage Spreads Fast
Depending on the leak and when it started, the amount of water seeping through the walls, floors, and ceiling quickly becomes a big problem. This leads to mold growth and further damage to your property.
3. Getting Electrocuted Is Possible
Chances of getting electrocuted are very high when the floor, carpet, and walls of your commercial property are soaked with water. To prevent this, cut the power by shutting off the breakers to the affected rooms.
4. Slipping on Wet Floors and Stairs Is Also Possible
Getting electrocuted is not the only problem you are exposing your office occupants too. Slipping and falling can lead to serious injuries.
