Business Failure - Commercial Restoration
Starting a business, for many people, is a big step into the realization of their dreams. For years it has been thought about, planned out, and perhaps sacrifices have even been made to make it happen. But what happens when you encounter a disaster? Planning for a disaster is usually not the fun part of a dream, but it is a vital part of keeping your business alive, in fact, according to FEMA, 40% of small businesses never reopen after a disaster. This is mostly due to a lack of preparedness in the situation. So what can you do to help prevent business failure? Here are some Commercial Restoration tips to help you in being prepared.
Preventing Business Failure
Emergency Ready Profile
An emergency ready profile takes all of the guesswork out for you. As a business owner, your time and energy need to be focused on the people you are helping, not the details of disaster prevention. Thankful with SERVPRO we have an Emergency Ready Profile or ERP that will help to create a response plan for you. An ERP will organize a list of authorized personal, a chain of command, emergency shut off valve locations, important numbers to call, and much more to ensure the event is handled and isolated as quickly as possible. Business failure is the last thing we want to see happen, as we understand the importance of small businesses to the local community, and an ERP will help to stop a disaster from growing any further.
Waiting Perpetuates The Chance of Business Failure.
It is no surprise to business owners the importance of consistency when customers need their services. Being available, and used creates a relationship with customers that is invaluable. When this flow is disrupted, customers can easily find a new provider and begin a new process with another company. Waiting, or not having the ability to respond quickly in becoming operational again is one of the biggest reasons 40% of businesses fail after a disaster. Another reason to respond quickly is that most disasters, when not handled fast, can actually lead to further damage and become more costly. If in the unfortunate event of a disaster, be sure to start the process of restoration as fast as possible. Your business is too important not to.

Most Insurance companies will recommend a restoration company to you, but that doesn’t mean you have to use the one suggested. Unfortunately, not all restoration companies are created equal.
