Understanding Commercial Water Damage and Structural Damage to Your Business

Mold is shown in a Commercial Property Mold can spread quickly through a property if left untreated.

Water leaks can pose a significant threat to commercial buildings, in part because they use more water than residences in most cases. For example, when a pipe breaks on the second or third floor of the building the result can be excessive commercial water damage.

Moisture always seeps down due to gravity. When a leak happens on a top floor the level beneath it can start flooding from the ceiling down. Moisture can destroy structural components and require a vast amount of reconstruction work to your business location.


Any time a problem occurs at your place of business, our SERVPRO technicians show up quickly after receiving an emergency call. Before we begin any work on commercial water damage.

Mold can spread quickly through a property if left untreated. SERVPRO of West Tampa can respond quickly, working to first contain the mold to help prevent its spread to other parts of the building. Next, we will begin the remediation process, working safely and effectively to manage the situation.

When structural components get damaged, they often have to be removed and replaced. In some severe cases, our SERVPRO team will take out all structural materials including drywall and ceiling tiles, stripping the inside of the building down to the studs.
