Common Causes of Commercial Water Damage
Water damage can be caused by a wide range of disasters. Some of these disasters you can prevent, and some are completely out of your control. But understanding the most common causes of water damage that you are likely to face, will help you to prevent and prepare for them better. The most common causes of water damage that we handle include:
1. Burst Pipes -Pipes can break in walls, floors, or in the open. They are one of the most common causes of commercial water damage.
2. Faulty Appliances – It might seem like easily remedied water damage, but faulty appliances tend to cause damage over a longer period without people noticing. That leads to more serious secondary damages.
3. Sewage Backups – A sewage backup is one of the worst forms of water damage that could happen on your property. Not only will the smell chase away all your workers and clients, but it is a serious health hazard. The contamination needs to be dealt with quickly and the water damage needs to be dealt with to ensure that it does not happen again.
4. Inclement weather, flooding – Floods due to inclement weather can be very hard to deal with if the water is left for a long time. In case of a flood call a professional water restoration company as soon as possible.

What Type of Water Damage Do You Have?
Depending on the type of water intrusion you have, tt can affect not only the price for clean up but also the process. Here are the three types of water damage you can have in your business.
Clean Water – uncontaminated water at its source and does not pose a threat to people if exposed. Example: water from a sink overflow.
Grey Water – could contain some contaminants and might cause discomfort or illness for people exposed to the water. Example: discharge from the dishwasher.
Black Water – contaminated water that could cause illness or death to people exposed to it. Example: sewage backup and spills, floodwater.
Business owners don’t deal with water damage every day, so it can be difficult to know not only what to do, but the right questions to ask. Here are some of our most common frequently asked questions.
Should I call my insurance first?
It might seem like the right call, but it is best practice to get a professional water damage company on-site first. They will review the water damage and begin the cleanup process. Your insurance company wants you to be proactive when it comes to dealing with damage, not waiting and letting the water cause more damage. Filing an additional claim may make your insurance premium go up. Call Hallmark Mitigation, and we can help you review the affected area and provide an estimate you can use to submit to your insurance company.
How long is the water restoration cleanup process?
Most of the water extraction and dehumidification jobs are done within 3-5 days. Of course, this varies depending on the severity of the overall water damage. The repairs that have to be performed afterward are highly dependent on the spread of the damage, the response time, and the speed of the extraction. Save your time and money by reacting qucikly.
Can water damage cause mold to grow?
Short answer, absolutely yes. Excess water and moisture are the most common cause of mold growth. If you have water damage and you don’t react fast enough to extract the water and properly dry the affected area, you could have mold growth within 48 hrs.
What can I do while I wait for you to arrive?
While you wait for us to arrive there are some things you can do. Here is a simple list;
- Locate the source of water and shut it off
- Move furniture and personal contents away from affected water damage area
- Remove any standing water if possible, with a shop vac or squeegee
