Commercial Building in Bricktown that needed commercial restoration and remediation fro SERVPRO of Point Pleasant SERVPRO of Point Pleasant helps commercial customers with a wide variety of cleaning, reconstruction and restoration projects of all sizes.

Commercial buildings include apartment complexes, industrial spaces, hotels, retail spaces and office spaces. These have rooms designed for a specific function.

Residential is any property that has between one and four residential units. This can include a single-family home, a townhome, a condo, a mobile home, or a multiplex building.

The main difference between the two is the size of the building and how it is being used. Commercial properties are generally larger than residential properties.


Commercial properties usually have more pipes due to the increased number of bathrooms, kitchens etc. While residential homes have standard plumbing. Just like a residential home, a broken pipe can equally destroy a commercial property.

Business Spaces & Appliances
