When a summer storm damages your commercial property in Wauconda, our local Mundelein, and North Wauconda team is Here to Help. ® Water is invasive and can cause serious damage to anything in its path quickly. Here are some tips from the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety for protecting your business from stormwater intrusion:

Inspect and clean the roof drainage system

Do this at least twice a year, ideally during spring and fall. This includes all gutters, interior drains, and scuppers.

Trim trees

Keep trees trimmed and away from the roof to prevent branches from rubbing against the roof and leaves from accumulating and clogging the drainage system

Remove debris

  • Remove loose objects and accumulated debris—including anything left by contractors—from the roof that could end up in the drainage system
  • Also, check under and around all roof-mounted equipment, satellite dishes, antennas, and solar panels for debris that could disrupt the drainage system’s water flow or cause ponding

Inspect roof drains

Check for, and repair cracks around roof drains.

Re-check drainage systems

  • After severe weather, check all drainage systems for leaks and ensure they are properly secured and operating
  • When re-roofing, ensure that all drains, scuppers, and gutters are returned to their original operating conditions
