- Plumbing Mishap or Backup
Blocked plumping happens more often than not, and this can lead to a sink or toilet rapidly overflowing. When a backup has been formed within a pipe it is easiest for water to escape the quickest way out, the wrong way. Spilling out into your bathroom area or all over break-room, it can happen. These backups are a result of all sorts of things being put down the drain- paper, large food pieces, grease, clothing materials, etc.- all leading to an overflowing appliance.
- Foundation Cracks
Foundation cracks happen to all buildings, new or old, and of any size. Often times it can be a small crack that goes unnoticed until the water starts to seep in. Water entering through your foundation can not only lead to water damage but can lead towards further problems such as mold. It is best to be assertive and investigate for potential cracks in your foundation. If found, contact a professional to assess your damage and create the best plan of action for you and your company.

Doing regular maintenance to your facilities system can greatly lessen the chance of a pipe burst. Checking for leaks, not clogging pipes, having a plumber come inspect, etc. all to prevent a possible disaster.
