Tips to Prevent Water Flooding Your Restaurant

6/3/2022 (Permalink)

Flooding and water damage can be devastating to any business, but for restaurants, where margins are already paper thin it can be even harder to recover from major property damage. We wanted to share a few tips with you that can help prevent flooding from happening in your restaurant.

  • Teach employees proper equipment use and make sure that everyone is following those rules. Dishwashers are one of the most common things to cause water damage in a restaurant. Be sure that all employees know the correct chemicals to use and how much of them to prevent damage. Another common source of dishwasher leakage is when the dishwasher is over filled with dishes. While it’s understandable to want to get as many dishes done as fast as you can, having too many in the washer all at once can cause problems.
  • Make sure that all water sources like sinks, toilets, water fountains and others are properly maintained and regularly inspected. Things like gaskets around the doors of a washer, and the water line to a water fountain are frequent areas of neglect that can often lead to a leak.
  • Employees should understand the importance of not leaving running water unattended. It’s easy to get sidetracked while working in a fast-paced environment like a restaurant and the risks of coming back to a floor full of water aren’t worth the few seconds you’d save by just waiting.

If you do unfortunately find yourself stuck in a scenario with water damage in your restaurant, our team of highly trained professionals is awaiting your call. We have the skills to tackle jobs of any size and caliber and would love to help make your water damage “Like if never even happened.
