Is Your Business Ready?
If you are like most businesses (including us!), you started 2020 with brand new exciting intentions for the year, only to have to completely reevaluate everything from payroll, work environment, to services or products offered. One thing we want to be sure you give attention to, in the midst of the chaos this year, is your plan in the event of a hurricane. No one needs to be caught unprepared for another potential 2020 disaster.
FEMA records that 40-60 percent of small businesses do not reopen after suffering an incapacitating disaster... and 90 percent of the ones that do, do not remain in business more than a year if they have to close for much more than 5 days. Often business owners have an emergency contingency plan in place for employee safety, but few have a plan specifically to stabilize damage efficiently and quickly. This is where we can help.
SERVPRO® offers an Emergency Ready Plan that provides you an immediate plan of action, limiting the amount of time your business is inactive. Timely mitigation minimizes the effects of water damage. Knowing what to do, who to call, and what to expect, in advance, is the key to timely mitigation.
Benefits of having a SERVPRO ERP in place:
- We are familiar with your property, access points, and type of materials likely affected.
- We are familiar with you, as an owner, and what you would have us prioritize upon arrival.
- We know square footage, layout of rooms, and power access. This allows our Crew Chiefs to estimate equipment, supplies, and labor needs immediately upon receiving the call from you.
- All of the above, gives us the ability to prioritize your business during a city wide event, as we have critical information in a cloud-based app that can be shared at a moment’s notice with the appropriate storm team.
