Commercial Some SERVPRO tips to help your business prevent water damages SERVPRO of Petaluma/Rohnert Park (707) 588-8226

Water damage happens a lot because of rainfalls and storms but it can also occur because of leaks and other situations. here are some tips we at SERVPRO of Petaluma/Rohnert Park Park want to give your company so you can be prepared.

First and most important, water spreads quickly so always have our number ready in case of emergency

 SERVPRO of Petaluma/Rohnert Park (707) 588-8226

another good thing to do is installing water detection devices: A water detector is a small electronic device that sounds an alarm when its sensor comes in contact with moisture. Its main benefit is that it detects slow leaks that often go unnoticed and also low moisture levels. you should install it near water heaters, sump pumps, washing machines, dishwashers and toilets.

It's also a good idea to know the location of your water main, and shut it off as fast as you find a leak.
