Leaky Drinking Fountains Can Cause Commercial Water Damage To Hotels In Coral Gables
Commercial Water Damage
Many people in Coral Gables are concerned with staying hydrated, and a quick sip of cold water here and there can help. Many businesses, including hotels, use drinking fountains and water coolers to provide this perk for people using their services. Low in cost, these convenient sources of drinking water provide benefits to both the business and the people catered to by the business owners.
However, hotels in Coral Gables can find themselves facing commercial water damage should their drinking fountain or cooler leak. Both can suffer from small cracks, either in the cooler's frame or various seals, or water lines that wiggle loose. Carpeting around the area can easily hold moisture for long periods without it becoming known.
SERVPRO professionals can help mitigate water damage that creeps up on business owners. Typically positioned near a wall, fountains and coolers that leak can damage walls and floors equally harshly. One of the first signs of a problem with a water leak might be peeling paint near the area. Any electrical outlets can become shock hazards if water enters their circuit boxes or saturates any wiring.
Our Water Damage Restoration Technician (WRT) understands the risks of damaged materials and can help guide you through the steps needed to protect your staff and guests. Because such water is clean and did not travel far, we can typically restore carpeting. When possible, we do this before repainting any walls to avoid trapping moisture under drop cloths. This also helps prevent microbial activity that can eat away at carpet fibers and backing materials.
Even though water is a tasteless and odorless liquid, it often creates odors when it comes into contact with carpeting, furniture, and many other materials, even after drying. We can solve odor problems related to water leaks, making everything “Like it never even happened.”
