Water is the #1 cause of commercial property damage,
but we monitor a lot more than water.
Commercial buildings: they look beautiful from the outside but can be exceptionally complex on the inside. This complexity makes it hard to be everywhere at once to ensure a small water issue doesn’t become a large scale damage incident. Water, sometimes traveling far from its source of a broken pipe or a faulty fitting, can cause thousands of dollars in property damage. In most states when there is a leak in a high-rise, the property owner where the leak originated is responsible to the surrounding units’ damage. Whether it is a small leak or a catastrophic one, water leaking into lower floors or nearby units can result in exponential increases in cost. Water damages will cost commercial landlords billions of dollars annually in structural, operational, reputation and financial losses each year. Vital Command can prevent the damage before it starts.
