Planning for disasters is simple part of the job when it comes to being a business owner. While your staff are busy taking care of your daily duties, it is your responsibility to be planning for the big picture things and the unexpected! After all, when disaster strikes, your staff will turn to you for guidance and direction.

Overcoming disaster situations can be really overwhelming, but not when SERVPRO® is ready to help! Our crew will help you overcome any sort of disaster situation that you are faced with.

The Steps for Preparation

The best way to navigate disasters is by having a plan that encompasses multiple different disaster scenarios. If your team knows ahead of time what to do when disaster strikes, you have a better chance of making a quicker recovery or even avoiding catastrophic damage.

Start by outlining your communication strategy and creating a strong chain of command for who will notify the team and who is in charge of what when the situation is developing.

In addition, you should also be communicating where your emergency items and shut-off valves are located. Take a tour of your building and show your team where your fire extinguishers, emergency exits and water pipes and valves are.

Do you know where your employees could and should go after a disaster occurs at your business? Now is the time to figure it out! Set up your team ahead of time to be able to work remotely if possible, or have a backup location scouted out that you can move to in the meantime if in-person work is necessary.

The Recovery

Having a plan in place will set you up for long-term success, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you will escape without any sort of damage to your property. That’s where we come in! Our restoration team will respond quickly and will help you rebuild and restore your building.

We are a full-service restoration company, which means we can handle your entire recovery no matter what kind of damage you have experienced. While we are working, you can focus on your staff and customers to keep them informed throughout the process. The more communication, the better!

In certain situations, it may even be possible to work in your space while we are cleaning and rebuilding your property. If you keep an open mind and are able to be flexible temporarily, we can work together to help you recover with minimal disruption.

The key to success lies in a good plan, and the key to a complete recovery lies in SERVPRO®. Give us a call day or night and we will make sure that your property is restored so you can get back to business as usual.
