Water damage to any building whether it is your home or commercial space can be a traumatic event. When it happens to a commercial space the damages can become more extensive than if it was in your home because there are more liabilities. The first step you are going to want to perform is a risk assessment of the potential damages presented to your staff, occupants, and other personnel. Some of the biggest hazards to look for would be Electrical hazards, slip hazards, and hazards that could present themselves in your HVAC system causing bacterial contamination. Calling a professional to come and help assess the damage is always encouraged.  

The second step in assessing a water damage event is to mitigate damages to ensure that secondary damages do not occur. Secondary damages can be identified as mold growth, damages to carpet that cannot be extracted, wall coverings, artwork, critical documents, etc. It is important that area is properly dried, and the humidity is kept to an acceptable level.

When fire strikes it is easy to make a business owner feel overwhelmed, but we have 6 helpful steps to follow that will help lighten the load.

Step 1: Prevent Further Damage

Preventing further damage can range anywhere from tarping the roof, turning off the water mains, adding security fencing, and boarding up any broken window. 

Step 2: Speak to the Experts

Don't leave everything to your insurance when it comes to reaching out to contractors to fix your damages. Collecting your own documentation is crucial.

Step3: Notify Insurnace

Contacting your insurance in a timely manner is crucial. With being a commercial business, your insurance policy is seen as a contract.

Step 4: Stay Organized

Make sure you keep all receipts, claim notes, estimates, and all written communication. Place all these things in a binder with your policy. 

Step 5: Know that all fire claims are unique

Not all fires cause the same damages, so it is important to realize that every fire needs to be handled in its own special way. Make sure that the building is treated and tested for smoke and water damage in all areas.

Step6: Stay calm and don't rush

Alot of the time business owners are focused on re-opening before all damages are cared for. Do not rush the restoration process, or it could end up costing you more money in the end.

You know SERVPRO is the name homeowners trust most when they need cleanup and restoration from all kinds of disasters, from fire to flood and everything in between. But did you know that we’re also the source of great services for business and commercial enterprises?

We are! In addition to residential services, we also provide incredible benefits of all kinds for businesses of any size.

Just one example of how we can help your business: SERVPRO knows that the cleanliness of your facility says a lot to your customers about how you care for them, so we’ve made it part of our assignment to help you put your best foot forward when it comes to cleaning and sanitation.

Commercial Services for Businesses of Any Size

Your focus should be your products and customer experience—let us handle the cleaning. We can make any kind of facility feel like a breath of fresh air—like these:

Retail facilities, from small local shops to malls and complexes. From the smallest book shop to the largest chain store, we can give everyone clean, germ-safe facilities that sparkle.

Educational facilities of all sorts, including sports stadiums and arenas. Regular cleaning by students and teachers, though well-intentioned, only destroys about half the bacteria present on the most-used classroom areas, and the percentage is much lower for objects like printers that don’t receive everyday cleaning. We can fix that.

Healthcare facilities, assisted living spaces and hospice homes. Healthcare spaces host some of our most vulnerable citizens, and we go the extra mile to make sure the air they breathe and the surfaces they come in contact with are spotless and germ-free.

Hotels, resorts, and hospitality facilities. From the convention center floor to the hotel lobby, we’ll make everything next-level clean and you’ll have a space that welcomes customers and gives them peace of mind.

Foodservice facilities and restaurants. Let us take cleaning off your plate. Whether your business is preparing and distributing food or serving it directly to consumers, we’ll make sure no pathogens put their health at risk.

Property management, from small office buildings to multi-level high rises and commercial complexes. Your tenants deserve a worry-free environment, and we can help provide it with the highest standards of professional cleaning.

Workplaces lose an unreal $260 billion per year because of workplace illnesses and lost productivity during sick days. Let us help you foster a sanitized environment and keep your employees and your bottom line at peak condition.

When you’re ready to have the cleanest business in town, we’re ready to help. Contact your local SERVPRO to get the pros working on the cleaning so you can work on the work.

Are you a DeWitt business owner?

If you answered “yes,” then it’s smart to have a disaster plan in place to help you deal with the damage fires and floods can do to your business. But after a disaster strikes, it’s sometimes difficult to know where to start—even if you have a solid plan ready.

Because we regularly help business owners deal with the aftermath of a disaster, we have a good sense of what it takes to steer your business from a disaster to reopening. Here’s some of the best advice we can give business owners facing a restoration scenario.

Help During the Restoration and Repair Process

Here are some of the best tips our team can give business owners working to restore their business after a disaster:

Move forward with your set disaster plan. Dealing with a disaster is a taxing experience, so remember why you need to continue working through your disaster strategy step by step. For some business owners, this could even include moving your business to a temporary backup location.

Document your damaged inventory and take plenty of photographs. It’s a good idea to take pictures before cleaning up the damage, so your insurance company can see and understand the full extent of the damage. Be sure you inventory all your damaged equipment and stock, too. Include accurate values with that inventory.

Don’t forget to talk with your stakeholders. It’s a good idea to regularly reach out to your suppliers, your employees, your customers and your community. Email lists, social media pages and phone calls can be effective ways to keep your business top-of-mind.

Be sure you’re taking care of your personal needs. Dealing with a natural disaster and its impact can be taxing on your physical and mental health. Eating a healthy diet, getting plenty of rest and talking with trusted friends and loved ones can help.

Partner with a robust support system. Because there are so many aspects of the process to manage, it’s best to work with trusted community partners who foster strong communication.

If a fire, flood or any other cause damages your business, you can always count on us for restoration assistance. We have crews who are available 247 in the event of an emergency. Contact us at any time to learn more about our restoration services and how we can help you.
