SERVPRO'S ERP Commercial Profile Plan
Be Proactive Before Commercial Water Damage in Portsmouth
Business owners in Brownsville plan for many contingencies. Employees call in sick or quit, equipment breaks, income ebbs and flows, suppliers fail to meet deadlines, seasonal demand disappoints, or surprises. One crucial concern under the radar until it demands attention is an unexpected water loss. Whether leaky plumbing, storm activity, or appliance malfunction drives the disaster, the future of your business depends on minimizing harm and a fast remediation.
How to Prepare for Water Emergencies
The perfect solution for commercial water damage in Brownsville is to avoid it. Unfortunately, plumbing lines and appliances age and exteriors cannot withstand every severe storm. There are common-sense steps a business owner can take to limit the harm to structural components, contents, and operations. Here are a few ideas you and your staff can implement:
- Locate important documents off-site in secure storage or digitize
- Encase records in waterproof bins and store away from plumbing and spaces prone to flooding
- Dedicate space for inventory above flood lines and far from plumbing, windows, and doors that could admit water
- Raise equipment off the floor
- Ensure all staff know the location of the main water shutoff
- Invest in regular inspection and maintenance of water risks such as plumbing, roofs, gutters, and appliances
