Renovations that Can Prevent Water Damages to Your Commercial Property

Guarding your investment is a wise choice, and no one knows this better than a commercial property owner. As time passes, repairs and renovations become necessary so that your property can remain attractive and safe, and when it comes time for a renovation, thinking far ahead will save time and money in the long run.

In the South, wet weather is not unusual. This is great for vegetation, but it can be a problem for home and business owners. Whether it causes mold or damage to your structure, being prepared for these kinds of issues will be a smart business move.

Your upcoming renovation project is a great time to think about possible water damages, and evaluating what areas of your commercial property are most at risk.

Do you have a low-lying parking area for your workforce and customers? Make sure this area gets special attention, from resurfacing and grading to new parking strips and clear walkway direction for pedestrians.

In anticipation of thunderstorms and high winds, the renovation of your roofing and windows will need to be of the highest quality so that your interiors can remain safe and dry during those kinds of conditions. Windows, too, should be replaced with the best that the market has to offer. The cost expended here will be recouped in the future, when you don’t have to clean up after a heavy storm season.

The bathroom and kitchen areas are potential problems when it comes to water from a different source. Piping and fixtures need to be of good quality and properly installed so that you don’t have flooding or rotting from poor fittings. Mold can easily take hold after an issue like that occurs, and that is a whole new problem that can be a huge headache for a commercial property owner. It only takes 24-48 hours for a mold colony to start, and once it does, it can be difficult to remove. The best way to keep mold from becoming a problem is to maintain clean and dry premises, so keep this in mind during your renovation projects to your commercial property interiors.
