A Ferndale church experienced a pipe break in the slab of the kitchen floor.  To make the necessary repair to the floor, plumbers had to remove the tile floor, break up the cement, repair the broken pipe, and lay new cement over the repair.  Because of the construction work performed, a cleaning needed to be done in the building. 

The technicians worked quickly and efficiently to clean up the areas with dust.  Technicians washed all ceilings, walls, floors, tables, chairs, dishes, and cooking utensils so the church could use the kitchen for their daily events.

Mold infestation in the workplace is not uncommon. There is always mold present in buildings. Certain levels of mold are considered acceptable. But when there are massive quantities of mold or certain species, it should be addressed in order to keep employees and customers safe. 

If a pipe leak or break is not repaired, the water can cause mold growth within your building.  Sometimes the presence of mold is unknown, possibly within a wall or in duct work. A professional company will be able to properly remediate and clean your building. If the mold is not remediated properly, the mold can return causing a larger problem which highlights the importance of using a certified and experienced company. SERVPRO of Farmington & Farmington Hills will assess the situation, remediate, and repair the affected areas so the occupants can return to work safely.

Commercial Water Loss Causes

Warehouse Water Damage in Farmington Hills, MI Business

Besides a natural disaster or large-scale storm, there are other potential causes for a water damage at your business. It is true that commercial water damages are often the result of weather events such as heavy rains and storms, however, there are regular maintenance issues that could cause damage to company equipment, inventory, and other valuable assets. Our SERVPRO of Farmington and Farmington Hills technicians are highly trained and knowledgeable in all of the possible causes for a water loss to occur in your commercial property.

Other Causes of Water Damage in Your Business:

  • Sprinkler System Malfunction - Sprinkler systems are a must for businesses because it helps protect the building in fire emergencies, offering the first line of defense when smoke is detected. However, when the sprinkler system is outdated and showing signs of wear and tear, the sprinklers can malfunction and cause water damage to everything inside the building.
  • Burst pipes– There are many reasons why pipes can burst and cause water damage. One potential reason could be an extremely cold day that can freeze the water in the pipes. Since water expands as it freezes, this expansion can crack and break the pipes that the water needs to flow through.
  • Clogged sewer system– Another possible reason for a commercial water damage is toilets and sewer systems getting clogged. Toilets and sewer lines can get clogged very easily and when a sewer line is clogged, flooding can occur anytime someone flushes a toilet or pours water down a sink.
  • Leaking roof– When the roof is not regularly checked and maintained, it can suffer damage from exposure to changing weather. Even if you are just experiencing a rainstorm, when your roof has a leak, it can become detrimental and damage the inside of your building.
