The truth of the matter is that commercial water, air, gas and sewage leaks occur in many of the same ways as residential homes. The difference is that in general, the larger the facility, the more areas there are that leaks can take place. This is compounded by the fact that business owners may be losing money on a daily basis due to the leak. Water flooding an office area may make it so that people are not able to come into work. While many water leaks can result from huge storms and large amounts of rainfall, there are many other factors that can cause water problems. Many people think of catastrophic situations like a natural disaster when it comes to water damage. The reality is that even a small leak if gone unnoticed can cause just as much if not more damage than the largest storm.
Common leaks in commercial buildings
Water leaks pose a significant threat to commercial buildings and property owners. This is because there is generally far more pipes and people using water on a daily basis. This also leads to fixtures and utilities getting used on a more frequent basis. Can you image how many more times a toilet in a popular restaurant gets flushed than in your home? This is one reason why commercial leak location in Salt Lake City, UT is so important. The damage that can be done by a constant leak not only can cause property damage, but it can also cause utility bills to soar. To help avoid these damages it is best to always inspect and maintain your building. Here are some of the most common places a water leak will take place in a business or industrial facility.
Toilets and urinals
As we said above, toilets and urinals that are available for employees and the general public get a lot of use. This can cause their parts and fittings to undergo a significant amount of wear and tear.
