Commercial Building Maintenance
There are some important things to keep in mind in the prevention water damage to a commercial building. Damage and potentially damaging situations are not always obvious when examining your property. The website disastersafety.org offers some easy tips to preventing water damage at your commercial building.
Landscaping and ground maintenance are major components of a complex system protecting a commercial building from water damage. Proper drainage prevents water pooling against your building. Grassy areas, flower beds and trees help absorb water, drawing it away from buildings.
Any unwanted water intrusion can significantly impact the value of a commercial property. Protecting the roofs, walls, windows, and other components of ‘the envelope’ (everything that protects in the interior from the elements) is critical to reducing the likelihood of water damage. Periodically check all exteriors for leaks, damage or signs of standing water.
Proper operation and maintenance of the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system will reduce the risk of water damage to a commercial building.
