No business wants to have a disaster at their operations site. Water-related incidents can slow or halt productivity, are generally expensive to clean up, and many have forced businesses to close their doors forever. As a water cleanup and restoration company, we have seen first-hand how water damage can negatively impact a business.

Mold Damage

Water damage tends to lead to mold damage, especially if it’s not been properly addressed. In ideal conditions, mold growth can occur in as little as 48 hours, but it can also make an appearance much later. Depending on the type of business, mold can present several complications. For starters, it can cause some health effects in people, which can slow your team’s productivity or cause disruptions in your operations. If you work in an industry with sanitary guidelines, this can present other issues entirely.

Structural Damage

Water can do a number on your property’s structure. Because many materials are porous, water tends to seep into these objects and cause both short-term and long-term damage. Wood flooring, for example, is likely to buckle, and moist sections of your drywall will generally need to be removed to dry any moisture it absorbed. Water mitigation teams like ourselves are able to completely dry out affected areas, but it’s not always cheap to do so, depending on the extent of the damage.

Be Prepared for Water Damage

In an ideal world, you would never have water damage at your business’ property. In reality, dozens of Statesville businesses have these issues each year. Water damage can be an expensive problem that can set back your business, but if you react quickly and call for professional help, you can mitigate the impact. If you have a Statesville-area business with water damage, know that our water mitigation team is available 24/7!
