Commercial Water Loss
A water line break in your business can be stressful and confusing since there are many factors to think about when figuring out if there is a leak, where it is, and how to repair it. The most common indication of a leak in your water line is physically seeing water come up on the street, on the sidewalk in front of your shop, or coming through the foundation wall. If the water is coming up in front of your business, it does not necessarily mean the leak is from the water line. Water travels and looks to the point of least resistance to surface.
Commercial water damage to your Hardin/Larue County business is a serious matter, and you want to get the water and damage cleaned up as fast as possible so you can operate as usual again. A closed business means lost profits. That is when you need to call in the professionals at SERVPRO of Hardin/Larue Counties, who can clean up the water and fix any damages the leak has caused. When the break is small, our technicians can repair it before they begin cleanup. For larger problems, we partner with other professional tradesmen who can fix the break in a timely and reasonable fashion. The municipality should be called in if to inspect and repair major street line breaks.
Another sign of a broken water line is a hissing or rumbling noise. Likely, your water main is broken if your water is not in use when you hear noise on the water pipe. The hissing is a great indicator of water exiting the pipe somewhere in-between the building and the city water main in the roadway.
Another sign is a water pressure which is low. Not all water main leaks result in this. However, it is a possibility that should be checked out by professionals. We can help you find the cause for the water line break so that it can be fixed properly and your building does not sustain any more water damage than it already has.
