Commercial water issues can be a major headache for property owners in Montgomery County. SERVPRO of Bethesda/Potomac and SERVPRO of Chevy Chase/Silver Spring professionals will assist you in inspecting, mitigating, cleaning, and repairing any water overflow or leak damages. Below are some of the most common water issues that a business can experience, ranging from leaking pipes to foundation cracks. 

Common Commercial Water Problems

Extreme Weather Conditions

Weather conditions in our areas can lead to pipe bursts and leaky pipes. Severe cold weather can cause the water in pipes to freeze and expand. The expansion of the water puts pressure on the pipes creating cracks or even causing the pipe to burst. When cold weather is in our forecast, you can take preventive measures by checking in with your local SERVPRO of Bethesda/Potomac and SERVPRO of Chevy Chase Silver Spring.

Plumbing Backup

Blocked plumbing can lead to toilet backup and sink overflows. When a pipe is clogged, water takes the shortest path out regardless of its intended flow path. Clogged drains are likely to happen in commercial buildings because of the larger volume of waste and debris flushed down the drains, which often clog the systems and slow the drainage. Plumbing blockages occur from many things including, water mineral buildup, plaster, and grease. 

Foundation Cracks

Foundation cracks can also become a problem leading to water damage. Water can seep through any cracks and pool, leading to further issues, such as mold and structural issues. To determine the best plan cracks should be inspected by a certified SERVPRO professional. Water damage can occur at both commercial and residential properties. SERVPRO of Bethesda/Potomac and SERVPRO of Chevy Chase/Silver Spring certified technicians fix the damage caused by extreme weather conditions, damaged pipes, and foundation cracks.
