Top Causes of Commercial Building Water Damage in the Marlton/Morningside Area

6/2/2021 (Permalink)

Contrary to popular belief, water damage isn't only caused by flooding or harsh storms, in fact, there are three non-flooding/storm common causes of water damage in commercial buildings in Marlton/Morningside.

Cause #1 Damaged HVAC system

Damage to a commercial building's HVAC system as a result of wear and tear can lead to water leakage which can in turn cause water damage. 

Regular maintenance and cleaning can help prevent this.

Cause #2 Damaged or Leaking Pipes

As is the case with residential buildings, water damage in commercial buildings are often caused by leaking pipes or bad plumbing.

Plumbing is an especially pervasive cause for water damage since pipes are often sensitive to drastic changes in weather and pressure, which can cause them to become damaged or even burst!

Unfortunately if there isn't any apparent plumbing issue, it can be difficult to know if there is plumbing-related water damage.

Cause #3 Leaking Sprinklers

Very similar to leaking pipes, any leaks in a sprinkling system can lead to water damage. 

Regular inspection of your sprinkling system can help spot bad leaks and prevent water damage from developing.

Because water damage has so many "tricky" potential causes, it isn't uncommon to have it progress to the point where you'll need a professional water damage restoration company to step in. If that's the case, call SERVPRO of Marlton/Morningside at (301) 856-5402!
