Commercial Water Damage When you choose a professional company to handle your water damage project, you want to make sure they understand the vast differences between commercial and residential restoration. You need to make sure the company you choose specializes in commercial water damage as well. Factors that occur on a commercial property that are different than residential vary between projects, but would include number of occupants, structure age, building size and even historical building guidelines. Occupant level: When you own a commercial structure, the responsibility to keep your occupants safe is essential. When water damage occurs on a commercial property, you have to consider the health risks to your occupants, and make sure you address the damage quickly and effectively. Structure’s Age: A trained restoration company will understand that the structure’s age can be a significant factor to consider. Historical permits, asbestos, lead based paint and even the condition of the building can all be a factor in the restoration process. If not addressed properly, hazardous conditions could arise, exposing your occupants to an unsafe working environment. Building Size: Commercial structures tend to be larger than residential, and usually utilize more complex building materials. In addition, commercial structures tend to have larger affected areas since they are much larger than residential homes. If you experience water damage in your commercial structure or suffer from residential water damage, you need to be sure to select a restoration company who is trained to handle commercial structures. It seems obvious, however, many small restoration companies attempt to take on commercial work thinking it is simply a larger residential structure. If you put your drying fate in their hands, you could be in for a costly lesson. When you are choosing your restoration company, make sure they understand the nuances of commercial drying. In fact, check to see if they are IICRC certified as a Commercial Drying Specialist. In addition, you will want to make sure they have enough equipment to handle your affected area, and make sure to ask them how long they believe the drying process will take. Commercial structures typically take longer than the standard 3 day drying process of residential. If the restoration company that you interviewed says they can do it in 3 days, and you have a large loss area, you may want to consider talking to another vendor. Select the Pros!
