What Businesses Should Know About Water Damage

Assemble flood/spill control kits.

Having a water damage response kit on-hand will allow for a quick response in case of an accidental water incident; this might include:

  • High-volume wet vacuum
  • Discharge hose at least 30 feet long, to be used with the wet vacuum 
  • Heavy duty sorbent brooms
  • Wide rubber squeegee
  • Filled sandbags (multiples of these, especially to protect sensitive electrical equipment, if your building is in an area susceptible to flooding)

Store these kits in areas where you’ll need them quickly, such as security or mechanical rooms.

Install flood gates.

If your business is located in a flood zone, consider installing flood gates to prevent water from coming into the facility. If permanent measures aren’t practical, you can install temporary flood gates, which can be attached to protect entry doors, windows, and exterior steps leading below grade.

Review your insurance.

Make sure you have appropriate and complete insurance protection in place, so that if you experience a water damage event, you and your business will be adequately insured.
