Have a Plan for Your Business Before You Suffer Water Damage
Business owners have choices when it comes to managing commercial water damage. The first is to wait until something catastrophic happens, and then deal with it, hoping for the best. The second is to take the opportunity to work with SERVPRO to design a plan to anticipate your issues and put in place a plan of practical solutions ahead of any troubles.
When water damage occurs in your business
Operating a business is tough if commercial water damage occurs. Whether you own a restaurant, a retail enterprise, or manage an event center, your responsibility is to keep the doors open and provide the services or products you promise your clientele. Unfortunately, a broken pipe or appliance malfunction sends water surging through your business, possibly closing you down until the experts to arrive to get the situation handled. Without a plan, that can waste precious time. SERVPRO suggests working on a proactive blueprint to streamline the assistance we can offer to get you back in business fast.
What does a disaster response plan include?
SERVPRO creates a comprehensive disaster response action strategy for water damage only with significant input from you. Our Emergency Ready Plan and Profile (ERP) is not a one-size-fits-all approach. We take the time to visit your company and to talk with you to assess your needs and understand how you deliver your goods or services. The assessment is free of charge but allows us to make a range of suggestions to limit your risk if your commercial space does experience a water damage event. Our experienced project manager walks through your business and sketches out your layout, including vital information like utility shutoff locations. We gather information, take pictures, and determine how we best meet your needs if your site is water damaged.
How SERVPRO’s ERP works
You take an additional step to increase our knowledge by completing your business’s profile on the SERVPRO ERP mobile app. On the app, indicate that SERVPRO of East Phoenix is your preferred provider. List any vendors and contractors who have essential information about your equipment and systems. Designate employees or others whom you allow to act on your behalf if you are unavailable during the water crisis. Gathering all this information is critical to a fast and effective response if a water emergency occurs.
The professionals at SERVPRO of East Phoenix are by your side during a commercial water emergency. Be prepared by developing an Emergency Ready Plan and Profile we can use if the worst happens. Call us at (602) 507-6163 to get started.
