When approaching a water damage project, whether its a home or business can make a difference. The two largest distinctions between the two are size and cost. Businesses tend to be much larger than most homes, meaning that the water can cover a greater square footage area, and require more time and labor to try and repair.
Commercial locations also have lots of inventory and equipment necessary for the operation of the business. When water damage occurs, inventory can be damaged, or even destroyed. In the event of a leaking pipe or blown sprinkler head, every second that water is flowing can cost many thousands of dollars. In these cases, getting the water shut off and the drying process can’t happen too quickly.
Additionally, because most businesses have customers and employees coming and going on a regular basis, it is even more important to make sure that the drying process is handled properly, and that there’s no risk of mold or other harmful microbial growth within the walls, floors, and other damaged areas.
None of this diminishes how serious water damage in a home can be, but it does make the recovery process more involved. It’s much easier to temporarily displace a family from their home for a few days than it is for an entire business, which will lose profits every day that it’s not operational.
