Storm-Damaged Business in Murrieta Hot Springs?

2/22/2022 (Permalink)

Commercial air conditioning units sit on top of a building. We restore commercial storm damage 24-hours a day in Riverside County.

Over six inches of rain fell in January in many parts of Riverside County. The large amount of precipitation caused flooding and damage to some businesses in Murrieta Hot Springs. Heavy rain is known to cause water intrusion, and sometimes water can enter the structure through the air conditioning unit. SERVPRO® of Murrieta offers this information from the Institute of Business and Home Safety for checking your air conditioner:

Internal Drain

If the air conditioning unit has an internal drain, make sure the pipe size is adequate, and water is running and flowing freely to handle a high volume of water.

Caulking of Air Conditioning Unit Sleeve: Look for any gaps, cracks, or other damage that indicates improper caulking around the edge of the sleeve to the exterior of the building. This increases vulnerability to water entry.

Orientation: If the unit is wall-mounted, tilting the air conditioning unit sleeves slightly (two degrees) towards the exterior wall can significantly reduce the water’s entry.

Weather Stripping: Proper weather stripping between the air conditioning unit and the sleeve can reduce the water from entering.
