Top Water Issues For Apopka / Wekiva Area Businesses
For a commercial property owner in the greater Orlando area, unexpected water problems can be a big issue. Fortunately, water damage professionals can help you assess, clean, and repair damages from any flooding or leaks you may have. Here are a few of the most common water problems a business may face, from leaking pipes to foundation cracks.
1. Pipe Breaks
A pipe break can occur in several ways. Over time, the pipe can age and loosen in its fittings, or extensive use can lead to pinhole leaks. Extreme heat or cold can affect a pipe’s integrity. A blocked pipe can lead to pressure buildup and burst.
2. Plumbing Issues
Blocked plumbing can lead to a toilet backup or sink overflow. Water in blocked pipes can take the shortest path regardless of its intended flow path. Blockages occur, including the buildup of water minerals over time inside a pipe or someone pouring a solidifying material, such as plaster or grease, down a drain.
3. Bad Weather
Extreme weather conditions such as Florida hurricanes, can lead to water damages from sustained wind driven rain or roof damage from high winds. These can quickly escalate to a business flooding, and it's important to have someone you can call immediately to begin water extraction and drying. SERVPRO of Apopka / Wekiva has the right equipment and trained techs to handle these types of situations.
4. Foundation Issues (cracks and slab leaks)
Foundation cracks can become a problem leading to water damage. Water can seep through any cracks and pool, leading to issues such as mold. Any cracks should be assessed quickly to determine the best course of action.
Water damage can happen to a commercial property. Fortunately, a professional can fix the damage caused by leaking pipes, foundation cracks, backed up toilet, or weather, and help you repair your property.
