Preparing for a Storm as a Business Owner

6/14/2022 (Permalink)

When the forecast is showing high winds, heavy rain, or another kind of potential disaster, there are a few things that business owners can do to protect their assets.  While there may not be a sure way to prevent your business from losing power or getting a leak, there is potential for softening the blow.  

Here's a few things that business owners should consider doing when preparing for a storm.

Have a plan B: Unfortunately, we as humans cannot predict the future.  Although that would be cool.  You never know what is going to happen and when it is going to happen which is why you should always have an emergency plan.  Take note of all important equipment such as the water shut off and the breaker box.  Also locate all emergency exits and a safe room in case things take a turn for the worse.  

Communicate with your employees and customers: Discuss your emergency plan with your employees to make sure they feel safe coming to work.  Try to be understanding if someone, for some reason, is not able to make it to work due to weather conditions.  Also notify your customers of what the procedure will be in case your business does experience damage of any kind.  

Protect your documents, computer files, and backup your data: If the weather were to cause a power outage, are there any important computer files or data that may be lost?  If your business does experience a water loss are all paper documents placed in a safe place?  If not, you may want to add that to your storm preparation routine.  The last thing that we want is to lose any files or data that is necessary to keep your business running smoothly.

Pack a supply kit: Pack a bag with emergency equipment such as flashlights, walkie talkies, a first aid kit, water, and even some snacks.  These things may come in handy if the storm is more catastrophic than predicted.

Schedule an inspection: Having your building, systems, and equipment inspected is most definitely necessary depending on the severity of the storm.  Have a roofer come out and make sure there are no loose shingles and also recruit a maintenance worker to ensure that your systems are up to date.

Secure and protect outdoor objects:  This may be outdoor furniture, vehicles, or building equipment.  Anything that is able to be moved should either be brought indoors or secured to something sturdy such as a wall or a post.  Things that are at risk for getting moldy or rotten due to moisture damage should be covered with a tarp or another device that will limit the amount of contact with moisture.

These few steps should help you, as a business owner, recognize how to prepare for less than ideal weather conditions.  If your business does happen to experience water damage, you can rely on SERVPRO of Parker and Northeast Hood Counties to help get you back up and running in no time.  You can call us at 817-596-8714.

Why Your Business Needs an Emergency Ready Profile (ERP)

4/5/2022 (Permalink)

Being a business owner comes with an excessive list of stressors.  Handling an emergency on your own should not be one of the items on that list.  That's why SERVPRO created an emergency program, to make certain that all businesses, small and large, are fully prepared for any disaster.

What is the SERVPRO ERP?

Unfortunately, disasters cannot always be prevented, which means it is crucial for businesses to have a plan to follow incase of emergency.  Our Emergency Ready Plan (ERP) is a step-by-step program made by us, specifically for your business, to ensure that all important structures, exits, and utilities, as well as important contacts, have been identified and documented.  This app works to provide business owners with a plan to follow in an effort to prevent any and all emergencies from escalading to the point of no return.  Our ERP includes the following:

  • A no-cost assessment of your facility. 
  • A precise profile document containing the most critical information about your facility.
  • A list of emergency contacts for every situation.
  • A guide to the recovery process after the disaster has occurred.
  • Facility details such as water, gas, and electricity shut offs.
  • A list of the primary contacts for your business as well as establishing SERVPRO as your primary restoration and disaster mitigation provider.
  • A step-by-step guide explaining the exact steps to take as soon as you notice your facility is in danger.

Why is it important for my business to have a plan in place?

Did you know that 50% of small businesses that endure a catastrophe aren't able to recover? The majority of businesses that are able to survive, do so because they had an emergency plan in place.  Having a plan serves as a mental insurance policy, protecting one's "peace of mind".  Protecting your facility will also protect yourself and your employees, establishing a certain amount of trust between your "employee" and "employer" relationship.  

Will SERVPRO help clean up and repair damage after a catastrophe?

The answer is ABSOLUTELY!  SERVPRO of Parker and Northeast Hood Counties is prepared for any disaster thrown our way.  Our staff is trained to handle just about any disaster from busted water pipes to biohazard.  We can even help with your every day commercial cleaning needs.

SERVPRO’s Cleaning Professionals Will Open Your Business’s Doors Faster

3/1/2022 (Permalink)

A lot of Parker and Hood County businesses rely on being able to welcome customers or ship goods to customers directly from their store. Any event that causes this business to have to close their doors can be detrimental in keeping customers happy, and revenue flowing. Instead of focusing on customer retention and growing your business, you now have to stress about how long your doors will have to stay closed, how much inventory you may have lost, and how this will affect your work.

Commercial water losses can come in many different forms, each being just as worrisome as the last in the eyes of an entrepreneur. Without professional help, cleaning this damage can take an extensive amount of time; but SERVPRO professionals will get your business and all salvageable contents restored ASAP. With our services, your doors will open more quickly, thus allowing business pursuits to return to normal. Not only that, but professionals will also know how to recognize damage to structures that can’t be seen, such as water leakage inside of the walls or structures that have been weakened due to the loss. 

There is no time to lose when your business has a water loss, which is why you need SERVPRO of Parker and Northeast Hood Counties on site. Disaster doesn’t work 9-5 and neither do we; we are available 24/7 including holidays at 817-596-8714.

How Can We Help Your Commercial Business?

There are many ways SERVPRO of Parker and Northeast Hood Counties can help your commercial business! We provide a variety of cleaning expertise that could always be put to use in your commercial building. Here are just a few of our cleaning services that we would love to provide for you.

Carpet Cleaning:

                A yearly carpet cleaning can remove offensive smells and stains, provide fresher air due to removal of dust and dandruff, and bring longevity to your carpets.

Air Duct Cleaning:

                The airflow going in to your building, should be fresh without any foul smells. Having your air ducts cleaned can provide cleaner, better smelling, bacteria free air.

Deodorization:

                Deodorizing a building brings an overall better smell to the area. With people going in and out, coffee spills, human function, or really anything that can bring on tough odors, smells of all sorts start to linger. This can bring an overall better smell to your building.

Document Drying:

                If your commercial building were to flood or the fire sprinklers were to be triggered, the important files and documents could become ruined. SERVPRO provides document drying which basically means, we will dry and restore to our best ability, your documents, books, pictures, and files.

Commercial Buildings

Commercial buildings are damaged more often than one would think. Since there are many people going in and out of the building throughout the day, there are multiple things that could happen. Commercial buildings are usually several stories high. So, this means there will be restrooms on every floor along with washing machines, sinks, water fountains, etcetera. With each use of the restrooms or water fountains, the higher the flood risk is. Not to mention rain leakage through the roof or a busted pipe. In a commercial building, flooding is a high risk and can be difficult to manage and correct but luckily, SERVPRO is here to help!

SERVPRO of Parker and Northeast Hood Counties want you to know that no matter the size or extent of the damage, we can fix it. Call us today!
