Water Intrusion Prevention Tips for San Ysidro Businesses?
Our local team in Otay Mesa and San Ysidro has been restoring water damage for businesses in San Ysidro for many years. Here are some water intrusion tips from the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety for protecting your business from heavy rain:
Inspect and clean the roof drainage system
Do this at least twice a year, ideally during spring and fall. This includes all gutters, interior drains, and scuppers.
Keep trees trimmed and away from the roof to prevent branches from rubbing against the roof and leaves from accumulating and clogging the drainage system
- Remove loose objects and accumulated debris—including anything left by contractors—from the roof that could end up in the drainage system
- Also, check under and around all roof-mounted equipment, satellite dishes, antennas, and solar panels for debris that could disrupt the drainage system’s water flow or cause ponding
Inspect roof drains
Check for, and repair cracks around roof drains.
Re-check drainage systems
- After severe weather, check all drainage systems for leaks and ensure they are properly secured and operating
- When re-roofing, ensure that all drains, scuppers, and gutters are returned to their original operating conditions
