Creating a Broken Pipe Playbook

5/11/2021 (Permalink)

Don’t let a broken pipe break your business. Commercial water damage in Rosemont, IL, can be approached like any sports game; with planning and training, a competent team, and a winning attitude, you can almost certainly win this match against flooding.

Identify Your Teammates and Opponents

Who will help you triumph, and what can hinder your chances for victory? You may be better prepared for a future issue by developing a general understanding of your building’s potential flood-friendly areas before an incident occurs. Any of these may be your water rivals in the workplace:

  • Fire sprinkler system
  • Toilets
  • Sinks (in restrooms, breakrooms, and kitchens)
  • Water drinking fountains
  • Any other water supply line (waterfall feature in the lobby?)

Never fear these foes, however, as you likely have a talented group on your bench with unique skill sets, knowledge, and experiences to keep your business afloat. You may not inherently understand the inner workings of your building’s plumbing and drainage system, but you can identify professionals and services who do. Teamwork is key!

Play Defense
Businesses do not need to wait until a broken pipe issue occurs before developing a plan of action for water repair and deterrence, but when flooding happens, damage defense follows. Building restoration services can quickly and efficiently assess and address the problem, mitigating future concerns that could stem from the same initial breakage (cue the cheerleaders, “M-O-L-D, mold prevention, 1-2-3!”) These cleanup captains will also tackle soaked structures, upholstery, and tough odors so your team can return to the workplace with minimal interruption.
With any sports team, fine-tuned equipment is necessary. Make sure you and your teammates are stocked with helpful tools and tips, such as mold prevention guidelines, and determine to whom certain tasks will be delegated (internally and externally).

Win the Game
Unexpected water damage can impact your commercial space at any time, but your business can prevail if you train with a proper playbook, then confidently face the competition. If you approach a broken pipe like a sporting event, you will realize victory is reachable with the support of a team of experts on your sideline.
