Don't Let Your Commercial Enterprise Be Closed Up Because of Water Damage

12/6/2020 (Permalink)

When a commercial property suffers from a flooding issue, the business loss isn't just measured in how much water is standing in a manager's office or covering a showroom floor. Every minute that the doors aren't open for customers is lost income and opportunity to grow that business.

Today, as the economy still recovers at one of the slowest paces ever, a business that closes its doors for even just a few days risks closing them permanently. Businesses with water damage rely on SERVPRO to get their doors back open as quickly as possible.

Consider this; flooding on a commercial property usually happens (and isn't noticed) overnight. When your manager or employees arrive to open up, that's when they find the problem. This day and its profits are already lost. To even have a chance to reopen the next day or the one after that, you need to get a professional from SERVPRO in your workplace immediately to find and close off the source of the damage.  If you have done so, that will mitigate secondary water damage and increase the speed of drying out the business.
Our team of trained, IICRC certified technicians begins clean-up within the quickest time possible, often within the hour.

Many state and local laws require that walking areas affected be completely dried off before allowing employees and customers to return. It's a matter of both health and safety issues. If your business can show that there is no other damage that puts either group at risk, then an inspector will gladly allow you to start serving and supporting customers again.

Getting the doors quickly reopened, even if the water damage is minor, can mean the difference between life and death for a business today. If a disaster or a broken pipe has closed your shop or offices down, call our technicians here at SERVPRO! We are faster to any disaster and are here to help get you back to "Like it never even happened."
