Commercial Building Maintenance Commercial Building Maintenance

When commercial business owners think about water damage, they often picture storms and natural disasters wiping out power lines, flooding offices, and shutting down businesses for days at a time. While it is true that commercial water damage is often the result of floods and water coming from weather events and storms, that is not the only cause.

Many businesses on commercial property forget that damage can come from other internal issues as well. Here are some of the typical causes of water damage to commercial buildings.

Malfunctioning sprinkler systems


Some older office and retail buildings still have outdated sprinkler systems that work with fire protection systems. While these sprinklers can come in handy during a fire emergency, they can also cause commercial flood damage if they are faulty or in need of replacement. This could easily damage inventory and business assets.

Damaged appliances and equipment


This cause of commercial flood damage is more common in restaurants and catering facilities, as well as any business that has appliances and equipment that make use of water. If the appliance fails and sends water across your building, especially during late hours when no one is around, you may come back to work and face a water emergency.

Broken pipes and plumbing


Just like in a residence, if the plumbing system in your workplace fails water damage could be the result.

Backed up sewer lines


This is another cause of commercial water damage that often catches business owners by surprise. Should the sewer line to your building back up or become damaged, realize the potential dangers of contaminated Black Water which can cause health effects and ruin products and office furnishings.

If your business has suffered commercial water damage, SERVPRO of West Topeka will get you back up and running again. Call us anytime at 785-862-0550

As the owner or manager of a business, you are well aware that running a smooth operation demands the aid of every available hand. Significant delays or losses may force you to shut your doors permanently.

SERVPRO of West Topeka is capable of meeting a broad variety of business requirements; it’s as if you have a business partner you never knew about managing an integral portion of your organization’s success plan.

When you contact SERVPRO, you are contacting a highly skilled staff that is accessible 24 hours a day to provide proven emergency services, minimizing business disruptions and expediting the recovery process.

Emergency Ready Plan. Recovery can start even before a tragedy strikes—that is, if your business has been well-prepared. We can aid you in planning the course of action to take after a disaster.

Industry Specialization. There is no industry that we cannot assist, and we have spent decades learning their complexities.

Emergency Preparation Plan for Businesses

A SERVPRO employee is talking to a business owner Emergency Preparation Plan for Businesses

Managing an organization is like to balancing on a ledge. Numerous factors must be considered when determining the number of people to recruit, their compensation and how to keep current with an ever-changing economic market.

It’s a full-time job, to be sure, but if we’re being honest, it’s more like an overtime job! You’ve invested an extraordinary amount of time and effort to get to this point. However, if disaster strikes, will you be prepared?

A single disaster often brings a business to its knees. According to FEMA, 40% of small businesses fail to reopen after a catastrophic event, and 25% of those that do reopen close their doors within a year.

A disaster plan is more critical than ever for small companies, since the economic horizon is unpredictable, particularly in the aftermath of recent pandemic shutdowns. As many as 75% of small firms do not have a strategy in place, and this has to change.

SERVPRO of West Topeka is glad to assist companies in the community with an Emergency Preparedness Plan. Regardless of your location or business, we can help you in determining what to do after a disaster.

You’ll be aware of the whole process from beginning to end. When a crisis strikes, your strategy is already in place and ready to take action immediately in order to mitigate the delay to your business. If an emergency occurs, you and your team will know precisely who to call, what to do and when.

Prepare in advance to avoid making your business’ pathway even more difficult than it currently is. SERVPRO specialists in your area can assist you in building an Emergency Ready Plan to aid in disaster recovery. It might be the difference between survival and failure in the aftermath of a disaster.

When your business is ready to prioritize planning and safety to prevent extended downtime, contact SERVPRO to get the Emergency Ready Plan underway from the folks who know all there is to know about disaster and recovery.

Keeping Your Commercial Building Safe

When commercial business owners think about water damage, they often picture storms and natural disasters wiping out power lines, flooding offices, and shutting down businesses for days at a time. While it is true that commercial water damage is often the result of floods and water coming from weather events and storms, that is not the only cause.

Many businesses on commercial property forget that damage can come from other internal issues as well. Here are some of the typical causes of water damage to commercial buildings.

Malfunctioning sprinkler systems
Some older office and retail buildings still have outdated sprinkler systems that work with fire protection systems. While these sprinklers can come in handy during a fire emergency, they can also cause commercial flood damage if they are faulty or in need of replacement. This could easily damage inventory and business assets.

Damaged appliances and equipment
This cause of commercial flood damage is more common in restaurants and catering facilities, as well as any business that has appliances and equipment that make use of water. If the appliance fails and sends water across your building, especially during late hours when no one is around, you may come back to work and face a water emergency.

Broken pipes and plumbing
Just like in a residence, if the plumbing system in your workplace fails water damage could be the result.

Backed up sewer lines
This is another cause of commercial water damage that often catches business owners by surprise. Should the sewer line to your building back up or become damaged, realize the potential dangers of contaminated Black Water which can cause health effects and ruin products and office furnishings.

If your business has suffered commercial water damage, SERVPRO of West Topeka will get you back up and running again. Call us anytime at 785-862-0550
