Let’s Play the Feud- Category Top Causes of Commercial Water Damage

5/10/2022 (Permalink)

One of my favorite game shows of all time is Family Feud, where two families face off to answer the top answers in each category.  This version was played by four SERVPRO of Orange County office team members, Yvonne, Holly, Rachael, and Sarah.  Two per team with Yvonne and Holly as one team and Rachael and Sarah as the other. With the winning team buying lunch for the winner. In the spirit of the former host Richard Dawson and current host Steve Harvey- Let’s play the Feud.

Today’s category, Commercial Water Damage Causes. 

Top 5 answers are on the board

Yvonne vs Sarah.  Sarah hits the buzzer first and blurts out HVAC units. 

HVAC units #4.  Leaking HVAC units can cause significant water damage

Yvonne has a chance to steal.  Her answer: Pipe and Sprinkler Damage.  Her answer ranks #2. 

Pipe and Sprinkler Damage – can cause serious damage to property and profitability.  Burst pipes and sprinklers can affect multiple floors and large amounts of square footage, causing significant business interruption. With a choice to pass or retain, Yvonne decides to retain.  After conversing with Holly.  Holly answers: Roof Leaks.  Her answer ranks #1.

Roof Damage and Leaks is the top cause of commercial water damage.  Having proper maintenance can prevent a large amount of interior water damage.  However, some roof leaks can not be prevented and having a great relationship with a restoration company, like SERVPRO of Orange County, that can fix the roof and dry the structure is a blessing that can minimize business interruption and help you get back to preloss status.   

Yvonne continues the streak of no strikes with her next answer, Storm Damage. Storm Damage is the #3 answer on the board.  Storm events such as hurricanes, tropical storms and tornadoes cause millions of dollars of damage to commercial properties each year.  

Yvonne and Holly high five each other knowing they are one answer away from sweeping the board.  Confident in her next answer Holly states, “leaky windows and waterproofing.”  Leaky windows and waterproofing ranks as the #5 answer completing the sweep.  

Sarah and Rachael glare menacingly at the victors knowing their loss will require them to purchase lunch for the winners.  Yvonne and Holly celebrate, and Yvonne yells, “Don’t Hate-Congratulate!”

Although this fun game of Family Feud only cost lunch, the impact of commercial water damage can be significant.  SERVPRO Orange County makes it "Like it never even happened." with mitigation, restoration, and construction.  Call (919)596-1242
