As a building owner of a commercial property, you want to make sure the condition of your building is safe for all occupants. Sometimes stagnant water can develop in the basement areas and go unnoticed for any given period of time. When this standing water is not addressed, it can cause mold and other hazardous conditions to develop. The liability becomes much greater in a commercial building due to the presence of employees and other occupants in the building. If you are experiencing standing water in your commercial basement, give the professionals at Baker a call. We can extract all types of water in a short period of time.

What Causes Standing Water?
Regardless of how the standing water is formed in the basements of commercial buildings, you’ll need to hire a professional to assist in the proper removal. Below are examples of how standing water can form:
- Failed Boiler or Chiller Systems: Boiler and Chiller systems process thousands of gallons of water on a continuous basis. Certainly there are safety mechanisms that help prevent massive water damage, but if you have an older unit, there is a greater risk of failure to the system. Pooling of water can occur if the equipment is not operating properly. Depending on the type of failure, hundreds of gallons can leak, which will require water extraction services to clean up the mess.
- Cracks in the Foundation: Many times, we get calls from our commercial clients to remove standing water in their basement and they cannot identify the cause. Typically, this will be due to small cracks in the foundation. When large storms hit or sewage lines back up, groundwater can pour into the basement of the structure without warning. When this occurs, you need to call the professionals. Baker Restoration and Construction is fully equipped with truck mounted equipment that will quickly extract even the largest volumes of water in a short period of time. Have a tight space? We have the equipment to address those areas as well.
- Pipe Failures: In our experience, the most common cause of standing water in the basement of a commercial building is due to pipe failures. Over time, pipes in your building can get old and worn down. When these water lines fail, regardless of the location, thousands of gallons of water can pour into the walls. Since water follows the path of gravity, many times the water will settle at the lowest point of the building. If this has happened to your building, and you noticed that water has settled in your basement, Baker Restoration and Construction can extract the water quickly and effectively.
