Are water leaks damaging your business?
The aim of any business, regardless of its nature, is to be successful and turn a profit. With
economies and markets proving more cut-throat with each passing generation the margins between
success and failure are narrowed and any small amount that you can save your business might play a
part in that difference.
Unexpected problems can turn out to be costly, and leaking water is a major cause of these in many
businesses. Unlike things such as rent, rates and equipment costs, people rarely factor in the cash
outlay for dealing with locating, repairing and covering the damage that leaking water can cause,
meaning that a seemingly minor problem can end up being a major drain on money and time.
Not all water leaks are massive and if you are lucky enough to catch it fast, the clean up and repair
could be minimal. Most pipework, however, is hidden within wall cavities or underground, which
means that many leaks do not come to people’s attention until the damage is already showing
through. Structural damage, as well as ruined furniture and equipment costs, can be devastating to a
business, but the potential risk to health is the most worrying factor of all.
Looking after your building is a part of looking after your business, your staff and yourself. Damp or
longstanding water in properties can result in mould, the spores from which can be harmful to
health. With an undetected water leak, yourself and your staff could be breathing in these spores
daily without your knowledge, putting you at risk of suffering chest infections, breathing difficulties
and other respiratory illnesses. The prospect of moving premises after an incident of this nature,
whether permanent or temporary, is also one that could cause massive inconvenience to you, your
staff and your customers.
