When people think about the benefits of commercial waterproofing in South Florida, protection against water is the first (and only) one that comes to mind. This one benefit may not be enough for individuals to contact a professional contractor for waterproofing services. You may not be looking at the whole picture, but at A-1 Tropic Painting & Waterproofing, we do. We know both the obvious and surprising benefits that come from our services, not because we have been in this industry for decades, but they were shared with us by our grateful clients. So, let’s take a look at the whole picture.
Lowers Flood Insurance
Businesses demand a lot of coverage that can really add up. Unfortunately, flooding is typically not included under standard commercial policies, so you must pay a separate expense for flood insurance. In areas like South Florida that experience devastating hurricanes, flood insurance is a lot more than a “just in case” purchase. It’s more like a “this will probably happen to me” purchase that you cannot afford to neglect. However, professional waterproofing will not only protect your commercial property, saving you countless on repairs, but it may also lower your flood insurance rates. It’s enough to make a significant difference over the years.
Creates A Healthy Environment
Do you know what is the ideal environment for mold and mildew to grow? They thrive in warm, damp conditions. You may be thinking you’re safe because you set your office temperature to 75 degrees F or lower every day. It’s important to note that mold and mildew thrive in warm and damp environments, but that does not mean they won’t grow in cool, damp environments, as well. They certainly do and it creates an unhealthy environment for your employees. Prolonged exposure causes asthma, hay fever, shortness of breath, dry coughs, and other serious medical conditions. Waterproofing ensures that your office environment is healthy and your coworkers stay happy. At A-1 Tropic Painting & Waterproofing, you can count on us to help your commercial building stay watertight year-round with our waterproofing services.
Protects Your Floor
Beneath most floors is a few inches of concrete flooring, which is relatively thin. Any concrete, but especially thin, will have a difficult time withstanding pressure from groundwater. Over time, the concrete will get weaker, start to erode, and result in cracks and leaks. One way to determine if the underlying concrete is affected is to look at the exterior concrete. Does it look like it’s rusting and eroding? If so, chances are the underlying concrete is deteriorating, too. Protect your floors with our professional waterproofing services. Not only can we address stubborn leaks, but we can prevent them from occurring in vulnerable areas. Always remember that water tightness is at the heart of a long-lasting commercial building, especially in hot, humid climates.
Prevents Structural Damage
This benefit probably goes without saying but it’s so important that it’s worth repeating. It’s never a good idea to ignore cracks and other damages to the foundation of a building – whether it’s your home or commercial property. As you may know, you risk water damage to walls, floors, and the foundation. Furthermore, it can lead to additional problems, such as mold growth and other health concerns. You can save money by waterproofing inside and outside your commercial property and eliminate the need for costly repairs.
Unless your building is in good condition, there is no reason to delay professional waterproofing services. If money is a concern, consider that you risk spending more in the future repairing water damage. Don’t forget the health risks it poses to your employees. Additionally, if you own the property, you want to ensure it does not deteriorate before you can sell it, as any kind of damage, especially mold and water, can significantly reduce the value of your property. Therefore, by waterproofing, you ensure the building’s overall protection, but you also increase the property value if the time comes to sell.
