Clean-Up Services for Commercial Appliance Leaks

Protect Your Business & Minimize Business Interruption

Appliances in commercial buildings can leak because of aging materials, improper connections, or ruptured hoses. A single water leak can result in costly damage to your property, and if repairs are delayed, it can cause mold to develop and potentially spread throughout your building. The team at ServiceMaster Restore® is here to assist you whenever you need us. Whether you experience a minor leak or a major flood, our 24-hour emergency services ensure that any damage incurred is minimized and dealt with quickly, saving you time and money.

Several common commercial appliances have the potential to develop leaks over time. These leaks can range from minor drips to significant water damage if not promptly addressed.

Common commercial appliances that may experience leaks:

  1. Refrigeration Units: Commercial refrigerators and freezers can develop leaks due to damaged or aging seals, clogged drain lines, or malfunctioning condensate pumps.

  2. Ice Machines: Ice makers can experience leaks from faulty water supply lines, damaged water valves, or issues with the drainage system.

  3. Dishwashers: Commercial dishwashers may develop leaks from worn-out gaskets, damaged water hoses, or issues with the drainage system.

  4. Water Heaters: Commercial water heaters can leak from the tank or associated plumbing connections if they develop corrosion or experience a malfunction.

  5. Coffee Machines: Water lines, valves, or seals in commercial coffee machines can develop leaks, leading to water damage.

  6. Washing Machines: In facilities with commercial laundry equipment, washing machines may experience leaks from worn-out hoses or damaged water inlet valves.

  7. HVAC Systems: While not an appliance per se, HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems can develop leaks in their condensate drainage systems, leading to water damage and potential mold growth.

  8. Sinks and Faucets: Commercial kitchen sinks and faucets can develop leaks around the fixtures or in the plumbing connections.

  9. Beverage Dispensers: Dispensing machines for beverages like soda or juice can experience leaks in their water supply lines or valves.

  10. Water Fountains: In public facilities, water fountains may develop leaks in their plumbing connections or drain systems.

  11. Steamers and Ovens: In commercial kitchens, steamers and ovens with steam-generating features may have leaks in their water supply lines or steam pipes.

It's essential for businesses to regularly inspect and maintain their commercial appliances to identify and address any potential leaks promptly. Routine maintenance can help prevent water damage, reduce repair costs, and ensure the continued smooth operation of these appliances. Additionally, having a contingency plan and access to professional restoration services, such as ServiceMaster Restore, can be invaluable in the event of unexpected leaks or water damage.
