Minimize Damage Using Water Monitoring
Water, water everywhere and not a drop should be there. Oh the hassle of opening your business or coming home to find a small water leak that has turned into a major disaster. Even with the best insurance company, there are still the headaches of scheduling adjusters, plumbers, painters, etc.
Huge Affects to Your Business
How would it affect your business if 2 inches of water poured into one of the following areas:
- Computer/Server room
- Document storage area
Water damage isn’t a sight you want to see on a Monday morning! According to FEMA “Almost 40% of small business never reopen their doors…because just a few inches of water can cause tens of thousands of dollars in damage.” And some things cannot be replaced easily if at all. If you could catch the leak early and prevent damage, what would it be worth to you?
After a wonderful vacation, all you want to do is come home and put the necessities away so you can sit down and rest before working the next day. Sadly, not all vacations end this way.
