Winter is the season for property owners everywhere to experience property damage caused by weather; snow, ice, rain, flooding and landslide.  

Unfortunately, almost fifty percent of businesses affected by a major loss, never reopen.  Failure to plan is a plan to fail.  

In an emergency, you need help and you need it fast.

What can you do to make certain you stay in business after disaster strikes?

To learn more about what can be done to prepare for an emergency, we spoke with Servpro representative Marla Rockhill.  

A good first step to reducing the property damage is to create an emergency plan.  The information contained in an emergency plan is easy to find on a normal day, but it can seem impossible to find in the face of an emergency.  

 

Essential information in an emergency plan include:

 

  • Emergency Action Checklist
  • Emergency contact info: Names and numbers of persons who can help in an emergency
  • Fire, Insurance, Restoration Contractor
  • Identify where power and utility shut off switches & valves are located
  • Evacuation plan and meeting location for where the occupants of the building are to meet

Creating an emergency plan can be the difference between staying in business or not.

The water used to put out the fire becomes a potential mold problem.  Standing water will quickly seep into walls, floors & ceilings and create a mold factory which can lead to additional health hazards.

Most property owners facing a large loss, have no idea where to look for help.  Getting to know a restoration contractor before you need one is a good idea.  

Restoration contractors have the needed equipment and training to clean up the damage quickly and minimize your down time.
