Commercial Water Losses

The Basics: Commercial Water Loss

Commercial WaterLoss (1)

Time is critical when responding to water or sewage damage in your business and all types of losses require an immediate response. Below are a few simple steps to take if you are able.

  • First, try to quickly (and safely) identify the source of the leak and stop it
    • If you are unable to stop the leak immediately – don’t panic!
    • Simply call your local plumber or turn off the area’s main shut-off valve, if you know where it is located
  • Be aware of hazards such as electric shock, slipping and toxic odors from sewer back-ups
  • Call Lamunyon Restoration to begin emergency service: 877-629-5135
  • Call your insurance company or local agent and advise them of the situation
    • Be prepared to provide information about how the water loss occurred
    • Let them know that you have called us – once we assess the situation, we will touch base with your insurance company to share loss specifics
  • While we are on our way, you may want to:
    • Move valuables to higher ground
    • Block the area off if it poses a risk to your employees or patrons
    • Perch furniture up with wood blocks or plastic wrap to minimize moisture exposure
