Water Damage: A Business Owner’s Worst Nightmare?

A flood can be one of the most destructive forces to plague a home or place of business. It can also be one of the most expensive; as Home Wyse reports, starting estimates for most flood repairs start at $1,100 and can escalate quickly depending on how serious the damage is. For business owners, however, this damage can be even worse. With items and documents important to the function of a business at risk, water damage can cause incalculable amounts of destruction.

Water Damage Is Always a Sign of a Greater Problem

Floods aren’t alone in their destruction. They always have a cause, and it’s not just an overflow of water.

Plumbing pipes may have ruptured, water heaters may have busted and leaks may be present in the roof or walls. Even if the flood was the result of a severe storm, the weather is likely to have caused some damage that allowed the water to easily build up in the building. No matter how you look at it, dealing with the water is only the start of a business owner’s problems.

Stock, Paperwork and Other Important Business Property Is at Risk

For floods in the home, destruction to furniture, paperwork, books and photographs can be heartbreaking. For businesses, however, water damage can cause major financial losses.

For retail outfits, damage to stock is money, quite literally, thrown out the window. For some companies, insurance may be able to help. For antique stores, art galleries and other shops that deal with unique items, floods can take away stock that can never be replaced.

Even for businesses that can replace inventory and repair property, there are still threats to vital financial documents. Even digitally stored information is at risk as water can easily destroy computer hard drives. FEMA recommends regularly backing up important documents and storing them in a different location to minimize the chances of complete loss.
