How to Handle a Water Damage in your Business

9/2/2021 (Permalink)

Our team responded to a commercial office space with significant water damage. A pipe burst overnight causing damage to a building of office suites.

While no scenario is exactly the same, there are general steps that can be taken in every situation. 

  1. Locate and shut off the shut-off valve or source of damage. Knowing where the water is coming from and how to shut it off is the first step that should be taken when you find a water damage in your building. Turning off the source of the damage is the first step in mitigating and preventing additional damage.
  2. Contact your insurance company to inform them of the damage. By informing your insurance company of the damage, you are able to take the first steps in claim resolution. The more quickly that you report your damage to your insurance company, the more quickly they are able to assess coverage and reimburse you for damages.
  3. Contact SERVPRO of Hattiesburg for emergency services and reconstruction.
