Depending on the Type of Flooding Occurring, the Impact on your Building and Guests Could be Considerably Different

Flooding can be one of the fastest moving and destructive disasters to impact your Lafayette hotel. It is imperative to address the loss effects these situations create immediately to protect the structure and the guests and patrons of your accommodation. The risks that staff and customers face vary from the loss incident; many of these variances depend on the flooding's origin. In most situations, there are three common flood conditions:

  • Roof Damages
  • Natural Flooding
  • Flash Flooding

What Threats Exist with Water Penetration from the Roof? 

There are multiple avenues for flood damage in Lafayette structures and commercial properties. However, with the expectancy for severe weather throughout the year, roof breaches can be a direct inlet for flood losses. Hail, winds, torrential rain, and other conditions can all have destructive effects on a roof, allowing water penetration through these vulnerable points. These conditions worsen until our contractors can seal up these breaches, repair the roof, and begin extraction and drying. These can affect rooms on the uppermost floors first.

Is Natural Flooding a Substantial Concern? 

Natural flooding can occur when waters rise around the structure, allowing it to penetrate the main floor. While this inevitably impacts areas like the lobby and check-in, it can also spread to affect rooms and common areas on the first floor. We must begin both extraction and controlled demolition practices where contaminant exposure might have occurred.

What Can Flash Flooding Do to Your Hotel? 

Like natural flooding, flash floods can impact the structure's main level, but more powerfully and fiercely. These emergencies spread quickly through the hotel, making it vital to implement extraction, cleaning, and repairs as soon as our technicians arrive.

Your hotel could experience flooding, but our SERVPRO of Lafayette team is ready and able to help. Call us today at (765) 420-0077.
