What To Do When Floods Fill Your Office Space

As a business owner in Towngate, TX, you like to prepare for every scenario in the book. That's why you already know what to do when floods fill your office space. You know which water repair team you would trust to fix the damage done to your building. However, being prepared also means knowing what type of water issues could affect your commercial building.


Plumbing issues are often the number one cause of water damage in a commercial building. Plumbing problems can include a lot of scenarios, such as the following:

  • Broken pipe
  • Toilet overflow
  • Leaky faucet
  • Supply line break

No matter what type of plumbing issue is at fault, you need to assess the damage as quickly as possible. If the water comes from beyond the toilet trap, for example, you may be dealing with contaminated water. This requires a different cleanup method than water that came from a broken supply line.

Fire Sprinklers

Fire sprinklers are an emergency system that often goes off when there is a fire in your building. The sprinklers release lots of water into a room to dampen the flames. When this happens, your building may have minor flooding as well as fire damage.


Weather can also cause water problems for your building. If a storm causes a tree to smash into your roof, the rain may trickle down from the attic and cause water damage in the walls. If heavy rains persist for long periods of time, you may have flooding in the lower levels of your building. Heavy water can even lead to a broken pipe if the sewage gets backed up and tries to come back into your building.

There are a lot of ways your building can become damaged by water. Whether you're dealing with a broken pipe or unexpected storm damage, you need to call your insurance and react quickly to keep the problem small.
