A Different Way To Prepare For Commercial Flood Damage In Mill Creek

There are many ways a business prepares for tough times in Mill Creek. Your business plan has strategies for managing inconsistent income, finding new suppliers, hiring additional staff at busy times, coping when employees are sick or on personal leave, and a multitude of other issues specific to your industry. One thing a business often leave to chance is how to respond to natural or human-caused disasters like flooding or other water damage.

Failing to anticipate the devastation commercial flood damage can cause your Mill Creek business might be its death knell. Flooding can destroy inventory, weaken structural components, expose a property to the risk of mold damage, ruin equipment, and bring commerce to a halt. A business that ceases its operations for even a brief period to recover from a flooding event finds it impossible to reopen successfully 40 to 50 percent of the time according to national statistics.

SERVPRO® is Faster to Any Size Disaster, but we are at our most effective if we collaborate ahead of time on our signature Emergency Ready Plan and Profile (ERP). This unique offering provides an opportunity for our project manager to spend time at your site when all is well and operating normally. We have a chance to understand how your business works, from equipment and other systems, storage and staging of inventory, retail or other sales spaces, and a host of other aspects of your business that supports your profitability.

During the ERP assessment, we draw on our training and experience to pinpoint spaces or practices that make you particularly vulnerable to flooding damage. Long before any floodwaters lap at your doors, we can make suggestions that limit the potential damage should the worst happen. SERVPRO creates a concise digital document with the knowledge gleaned from our visit, presenting the crew we eventually send to your commercial property with an action plan that is personalized and intended to mitigate the damage rapidly.

You add refinements to the ERP by using our mobile app to list vendors and contractors who can help us recover systems and get equipment back online. You designate SERVPRO as your restoration contractor and can nominate key staff, family, or other whom you authorize to act on your and your business's behalf if you are not available immediately when the flooding disaster happens. Suggest ways we can help you continue to serve and reassure your customers during the restoration phase.

SERVPRO of La Porte County wants all our partner businesses to emerge from a flooding disaster whole and ready to resume operations. Call (219) 879-1883 now for a no-cost assessment to ready your company for flood damage and recovery.
