Common Leaks in Commercial Buildings
The best way to prevent a water damage in your place of business is to know where to look for telltale signs of a water leak. Here are some locations to assess so you can potentially detect a water leak before it happens in a commercial building.
Toilet Leaks – Toilets in commercial buildings tend to get a lot of use. Toilets have several parts that tend to deteriorate which can lead to eventual issues. Be sure to inspect and replace toilet components as soon as they begin to deteriorate.
Faucet Leaks – Leaky faucets are another common and generally neglected issue in a commercial building. Faucet parts tend to wear out over time and when watertight seals or other components begin to leak it can lead to water loss. Not only will this raise your water bill, but it may also cause major water damage to your building. Be sure to repair any leaky sinks as soon as possible.
Underground Leaks – These leaks can be very damaging and tend to be difficult to detect. If you notice wet patches of soil, extensive growth of foliage or a dramatic increase in your water bill you may want to get this checked out.
Hidden Leaks – These leaks are probably the most difficult to detect and can cause the most damage considering they go unnoticed for long periods of time. Some tell tale signs of a hidden leak will be water marks, swelling of walls and swelling of ceilings and floors.
