Tips for Preventing Water Damage for Kamuela Businesses?
Aloha! Our teams in Hawaii and Maui have over twenty years of experience restoring commercial water damage in damage in Kamuela. Here are some tips from the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety for protecting your business from water damage:
Inspect and clean the roof drainage system
Do this at least twice a year, ideally during spring and fall. This includes all gutters, interior drains, and scuppers.
- Remove loose objects and accumulated debris—including anything left by contractors—from the roof that could end up in the drainage system
- Also, check under and around all roof-mounted equipment, satellite dishes, antennas, and solar panels for debris that could disrupt the drainage system’s water flow or cause ponding
Inspect roof drains
Check for, and repair cracks around roof drains.
Re-check drainage systems
- After severe weather, check all drainage systems for leaks and ensure they are properly secured and operating
- When re-roofing, ensure that all drains, scuppers, and gutters are returned to their original operating conditions
Check for water
Check for long-term standing water in gutters and correct any blockages. If there are no blockages but standing water still occurs, ensure the gutter is properly sloped to the downspout.
