What Type of Damage Affects Commercial Buildings?
All the same types of damage that can affect residential properties have an equal chance of affecting commercial buildings. These include:
- Storm and wind damage – Damage caused by strong winds and heavy rain which can remove roof tiles, break windows and more.
- Water damage – Water damage can be caused by burst pipes, floods, rain or a number of other things. In any case, this can then result in contaminated water affecting surfaces and furniture, in mold growing and in items being eroded. Electricity and water damage are particularly volatile when combined.
- Fire damage – Fire damage can come from a cigarette that isn’t properly put out, from a gas stove or from lightning. In any case, this can then cause severe destruction to your property which requires cleaning and restoration services.
Mold – Mold is highly unhygienic as well as being unappealing to look at. Mold spreads quickly around properties as air-borne spores and remediation is very important to prevent it from getting out of hand.
