Water Damage in Your Business? Call Spokane's Best Team!

11/23/2022 (Permalink)

Understanding the threats that can cause damage to your business is one of the responsibilities of being a commercial property owner. Of such threats, water damage should be at the top of that list, and with so many ways that water can infiltrate your business, being prepared is essential.

The water damage professionals at SERVPRO of Northeast Spokane have the training and expertise to help assess, clean, and repair any damage from flooding or leaks. Take note of some of the common water damage problems businesses come across.

Plumbing Backup

Common reasons pipes back up are toilet paper, hair, soap scum, mineral deposits, and grease, causing toilets to backup or sinks to overflow. Water will usually take the shortest path out with a blocked pipe, typically where you don't want it.

Pipe Breaks

Older pipes, due to age and wear and tear, are more likely to loosen or crack. Long-term use and extreme heat or cold can result in pinhole leaks forming. Even a blocked pipe can build enough pressure causing it to burst and flood the surrounding area.


Extreme weather conditions can impact how pipes work or even cause them to break or burst.  Cold temperatures can cause the water in pipes to freeze and expand, putting pressure on the pipe, which over time may cause it to crack or even burst.  Be sure to have your pipes weatherproofed, especially if cold weather is approaching, ensuring you don't have water damage from a frozen pipe.

Foundation Cracks

Foundation cracks and slab leaks can allow water to seep through and pool in spaces if left unchecked, which could result in mold growth. A regular maintenance and inspection program looking for any and all cracks should be implemented to prevent more damage later on.
