Commercial Water Damage
How To Handle Cleanup
Water damage can strike your commercial property at any time and of course there is never any advance notice. The damage just shows up. The effects of commercial water damage can be devastating to a business owner who is now faced with having to clean up the water damage and reopen his or her business as soon as possible.
Do you know how to handle water damage at your commercial property? Are you prepared to make the necessary decisions after a pipe breaks, your roof leaks, or the streets flood to protect your property? What exactly is your plan?
Fortunately, this is manageable. Preparation for a water damage emergency and a plan of action in the event it ever happens can significantly reduce property damage and will get you back to business as soon as possible.
Commercial Water Damage Prevention
Large-scale losses can be prevented by following a few simple guidelines. Know where your emergency water shut-off valves are located, and have a contingency plan in place in case you are not available. Create an emergency plan with directions for what to do in an emergency as well as a list of phone numbers of approved companies to call in an emergency situation. Make sure someone you can trust has the authorization to make decisions if you are unavailable.
It is also a good idea to locate an emergency water damage restoration company in your region before disaster strikes. Do your due diligence and call a few different companies to ask any questions you might have about their services or their experience with companies similar to yours. How quickly cleanup begins will impact the size of the loss. Just make sure SERVPRO of East Sterling Heights/West Clinton Twp. (586-412-9595) is one of the companies you call. We don't mind competition but we at least want to be in the running to be your go-to restoration company.
