When water damage occurs in your business, you want to take action quickly to avoid further damage like property destruction and health issues such as mold growth. When water damage is not addressed quickly, moisture can penetrate through floor boards, damaging the structure of the property enough to reduce the quality of your property and possibly cause a hazardous situation. Venture’s water mitigation services reduce the water damage caused by a flood, leak, plumbing failure, or burst pipe.
When do you need professional water mitigation services?
You need water mitigation services when:
- water has entered your business because of a flood,
- you have suffered a leak in your or business,
- a pipe has burst,
- carpet, upholstery, wood work, furniture, and/or structural aspects of your business have been damaged by water
Water mitigation services become necessary any time water threatens the structural integrity, livability, value, and appearance of your property. Is it important to act when you see the first sign of water damage, because the damaging effects of water spread. The faster you take action, the less severe the water damage.
Early indicators of water damage include:
- The most obvious sign, of course, is the sight of water where it shouldn’t be.
- You discover inexplicably wet carpet.
- You encounter a recurring puddle around a plumbing fixture.
- You notice discoloration such as water stains on your ceiling.
- The walls or floors have become soft, warped.
- There is rust on the outside of your hot water heater or a pipe.
- You notice a hot spot in a floor or wall. This sounds odd, but sometimes you can detect a leak in a hot water pipe because your wall or floor is hot to the touch.
- The flow indicator on your water meter spins continuously or moves when no water is running.
- Another obvious sign, you hear water running even when you can’t see it.
What you can do in the event of flooding and water damage
There are some steps you can take as a business owner to limit the damage to your property and your nerves. First of all, try to remain calm. Letting panic take hold in your mind saves no trouble and makes the situation slower to resolve, more frustrating, and possibly even more dangerous. Concentrate on taking one step at a time to stop the flow of water, prevent damage, and keep yourself safe.
