I came into work the other day, and the first thing I noticed, was that there was a rather large puddle on the floor. I looked up and sure enough there was a leak, which was dripping. It is in a bad place in the building and so it is something that needs to get fixed soon. I am checking for contractors that do commercial roof repair in NJ in the hopes of hiring someone to fix the hole int he roof before the next time it rains again. I do not want to have to deal with this problem going forward, because there is real potential for equipment damage if the problem does not get fixed soon.
I am lucky that I came into work when I did, because I came into work about an hour or two before I normally do. I was able to discover the problem early, and put a large trashcan under the leak. But there are still other problems associated with having a leak in this building that are not fixed by simply having something to collect the water as it falls.
This building is humidity controlled and the leak is causing an increase in humidity that could be damaging to some of the equipment in the building. I am not sure how much of a risk this really is, but it is too large of a risk to be ignored, with the amount of money that some of this equipment costs. So my main objective is to hire someone for the job before the end of the day today, and i am going to try to schedule them to come to fix the hole as soon as possible. I really have no idea how it could have formed, but I guess that doesn’t matter much.
