Government Buildings As secure as government buildings may be, they are still susceptible to water damage from hurricanes, storms, and flooding, and from unexpected leaks and burst pipes. The federal government has countless buildings across the nation. States, counties, and local municipalities have their own government buildings over wide geographic areas. Given the aging infrastructure of many these buildings and the gamut of weather conditions that exist where they are located, the potential for water damage to occur at one time or another is great. When government facilities are hit with water damage, cleanup should begin as soon as possible after the damage occurs. And, the damage should be handled only by a company with the specialized training and qualifications to perform the necessary cleanup work. GET RESTORATION EXPERTS is one such company.
