Homes and Businesses Need a Plan To Deal With Water Damage

Water damage can strike the commercial district without warning. Commercial water emergencies are not uncommon problems for office buildings. Major cities are well known for their tall high rise buildings with many floors of office space and restrooms on virtually ever level. A water emergency can occur from as little as one overflowing toilet. Excess water will run over and try to find an escape route that can lead to ventilation units, staircases, elevators, and floors.

Once water is absorbed into the carpet, upholstery, and fabric covered furniture, the potential for mold begins. Running water may empty into ventilation duct work leading to numerous office spaces throughout the building. This water may escape office duct work and pour out over computers, paperwork, books, and other non-replaceable objects.

Water that flows into elevators can saturate electrical components that may short circuit the elevator buttons. This creates a safety hazard on many levels as employees, visitors, and guests may be unsuspecting of the South Side Chicago water damage. Stairwells may be saturated leaving slippery surfaces for unknowing individuals to slip and fall which can lead to potential injury.
