Water Damage in Restaurants

By the RestorationSOS Educational Staff

Since food is prepared and consumed in restaurants, sanitation is critical not only to the continued operations of a restaurant business but also to the health of its patrons. When a restaurant becomes water-damaged and the incident involves contaminated water, the restaurant is rendered unsanitary and, therefore, not fit to operate as a food-related business.

Also, there is always the risk of mold growth in any water-damaged building. In restaurants, the presence of molds can lead to lawsuits and citations from the health department. Restaurants located above other establishments also need to consider potential damage of leaks to the businesses below.

Consequences of Water Damage in Restaurants

In addition to the loss of investments and the costs related to the cleanup and renovation of the building, the owners also have to deal with repairing or replacing damaged equipment and restaurant fixtures as well as the loss of revenue until the restaurant reopens.

Depending on the severity of the damage, the financial consequences of water damage in a restaurant could be severe enough that the owners would have to rely on flood insurance money to carry it through restoration and be able to open for business again. Without enough emergency funds, it is not uncommon for restaurants that suffered significant water damage to close down permanently.
