Why Religious Buildings Are Prone to Damage

Religious buildings like churches, mosques, synagogues, and temples are prone to water damage, fire damage, and mold problems because they are often empty for extended periods. While most sanctuaries are open during the day, they are often unoccupied except during periods of worship.Any damage that occurs between those services is likely to go unnoticed. Even if full- or part-time staff are in the property, it’s likely that the main chapel or sanctuary hall will be mostly empty. The same goes for community halls, recreation centers, and other religious facilities on the property.

Religious and Church Damage Due to Accidents

The majority of the damage in churches and religious facilities are caused by accidents. Plumbing leaks, burst water pipes, and out of control candles are likely to cause extensive damage throughout the worship hall and other areas of a religious building.

Religious and Church Damage Due to Vandalism

Unfortunately, cultural and religious facilities also have a higher instance of vandalism. This can result in fire damage due to arson and water damage and mold due to other acts of vandalism.

Commercial Restoration For Religious Buildings

The restoration process varies depending on the type of damage, but these general steps apply in most cases.Water Extraction and Dry Out – Identify the source of the water, extract standing water, and dry out affected materialsClean or Remove Damaged Materials – Clean smoke, soot, or mold and properly dispose of damaged building materials.Deodorize and Disinfect – Treat the affected area against smells, mold, and bacteria that can develop over time.Rebuild and Restore – Rebuild and restore your building to its original condition as necessary.

Water Damage in Churches and Religious Buildings

Water is a powerful solvent that can damage many materials, including wood, carpeting, drywall, and plaster. Whether caused by plumbing issues, a leaky roof, or a burst pipe, water can cause extensive damage throughout your property. The longer the water sits, the more damage it can cause. The category of the water involved also impacts the damage, with sewage causing more extensive damage than clean water.

Fire Damages in Churches and Religious Buildings

Most churches and religious facilities use candles and incense as a part of their ceremonies and rituals. While these items are usually safe, there is always the potential for an accident. Additionally, many modern religious facilities use microphones, speakers, and other items that require extensive wiring and electricity that may result in an electrical fire.

Mold in Churches and Religious Buildings

Mold is a symptom of a persistent source of water. When organic materials like books, wood, plaster, and drywall get wet, they can become a breeding ground for mold. As long as the moisture remains, the mold will continue to thrive. Over time, it can stain and damage items or even cause structural issues. Mold can also cause allergic reactions and other health symptoms, especially in young children and the elderly.
