A flood does not always have to occur in a residential home. We get numerous calls regarding commercial flooding. A number of reasons could be behind us getting called to commercial properties for flooding or water damage, including:

  • Heavy rains that leaked through the structures’ house
  • Weak pipes in the walls
  • Someone forgetting to turn off the sink before leaving the property
  • And more!!!

A couple ways that you can prevent your commercial building from being damaged are:

  • Fixing any leaks in the ceiling that you may have, before it gets serious, in order to limit water damage that may occur during a heavy rain
  • Before you leave, make sure all the sink faucets are turned off to help prevent flooding

You can count on us here at SERVPRO of Santee/Lakeside to come your aid and assist with any damage that may have occurred to your property. Call us at (619) 285-7200.
