Consequences of Water Damage in Universities

By the RestorationSOS Educational Staff

The direct consequence of water emergencies is property damage, including structural damage and damage to building contents. As a result, universities would have to shell out money for repair or replacement of damaged items.

Aside from the financial effects, affected rooms may be rendered unsafe or simply not in a condition for use. This then leads to suspension of classes or interruptions to school functions and activities. Secondary water damage, like mold growth and other moisture problems, also creates an environment that is not only unsightly and odorous but also unhealthy to students and staff.

Damage to records is another major consequence that universities deal with following a water emergency. Water can damage both electronic and paper records, affecting critical school documents such as admissions records, academic transcripts, and financial documents. Additionally, valuable archives in the library and other significant collections may also be affected.
