Elevator Water Damage? Immediate Action Steps to Take

Water damage in an elevator system is a serious issue that can lead to significant operational problems, costly repairs, and even safety hazards if not addressed promptly. To assist you with elevator water damage, we’ve created a straightforward guide detailing the immediate actions you should take and how CBA Elevator Consultants can help you manage and prevent these issues in the future.

Immediate Steps to Take in the Event of Elevator Water Damage

1) Shut Down the System

The first step is to immediately shut down the affected elevators. This helps prevent short circuits and additional damage to electrical components.

2) Notify Key Parties

Alert your building maintenance team, elevator service provider, and insurance company. It’s important to keep them informed from the outset so they can provide the necessary assistance and guidance.

3) Document the Damage

Take detailed photos and videos of the affected areas. This documentation will be crucial for insurance claims and for your elevator service provider to assess the extent of the damage and helps determine what is required in order to bring the elevator to safe conditions to be used again.

4) Initiate Clean-Up

Once safe to do so, begin the clean-up process. This usually involves pumping out standing water and drying the area.

5) Arrange for Inspections and Repairs

Have a certified elevator technician inspect the damage and suggest necessary repairs or replacements. Never attempt to restart the elevator system without professional clearance.
