Water Damage in Lousia, Orange and Madison County can be Expensive

Water damage can be a costly mess for your business. Generally, water damage is caused by three things: plumbing, appliances or roofing issues.

In the winter, pipes can freeze, burst and damage the building and the occupants' personal property. A small break in a pipe can release up to 250 gallons of water a day. Plumbing is susceptible to clogs and stoppages, which can lead to overflowing in toilets, and sinks.

Damaged roofing materials and ice dams can allow water to enter through the roof causing significant damage. Exposure to wind, snow, ice, and rain prevent water from properly flowing or draining off a roof.

There are some preventative measures you can consider to protect your business.

Passive leak detection systems:

These commercial leak detection systems are intended to alert you to a possible water leak. Passive systems are usually battery-operated, stand-alone units. They are easy to install and inexpensive. There is a moisture sensor on the bottom of the unit, and it activates the alarm when it detects moisture.

Active leak detection systems:

Commercial leak detection systems generate an alarm, but also can stop the water flow. They have a shutoff valve and a way to determine that there is a leak. Some units use moisture sensors, other systems utilize a flow sensor and a timer. An active leak detection system can operate only for an individual appliance or control the entire commercial site.
