Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Recovering From Storm Damage to Your Business

8/17/2021 (Permalink)

This has been a significant monsoon season so far, with no end in sight. Many businesses have already experienced storm damage to their businesses which has interrupted if not completely shut them down until repairs are completed. Here’s what you need to know on how to recover from water damage to your business.

What causes damage during monsoons

The severity of a monsoon storm can bring damage in a number of ways. With the expectational amount of water that occurs in a brief period of time, flooding is a typical result of monsoons. Depending on how severe the water damage is in your Phoenix business, professional restorers might not require a long span of time to restore your building and get your business ready for its nightly influx of customers. Of course, more severe instances might require a temporary closing, but one of the benefits of choosing professional services is that the job is getting done more efficiently, so your customers and employees are not without a place to go for very long. High winds can also cause damage, downing trees that can in turn damage businesses, roofs damaged or debris breaking windows. Then there is the lighting which can strike a building causing a fire. Monsoons are a triple threat to businesses, so it’s important to be prepared and know who to call.

What happens when you experience damage to your building

From the moment that our SERVPRO team arrives at your business, we work to determine the source of damage and get this area repaired. This repair is the first step in restoration, as it prevents further damage to the area while cleanup and repairs are underway. While more significant circumstances could warrant the replacement of materials and extraction equipment, often water damage incidents only require basic cleanup techniques and high-powered drying tools, whereas fire may need more significant remediation. For most businesses, water damage is the main result of a ferocious storm. Drying the area is a critical step of restoration. This process usually implements air movers and dehumidifiers but could also require more specialized equipment for specific areas and materials that require water removal. Ultimately, once the area gets dried, our SERVPRO professionals can work on deodorization before deeming the project completed. If fire or high wind damaged your business, SERVPRO will use a variety of techniques to address the damage and get your business up and running again.

Being prepared can help businesses recover

Oftentimes, valuable time is lost as business owners scramble to reach the right people to help get the recovery process underway. They also are unsure where shutoff valves are, or how to protect the assets in their building. SERVPRO strongly suggests having an Emergency Ready Profile (ERP) in place to help facilitate reaction and recovery when a business experiences damage of any kind.

Overcoming damage in your business is not something that business owners should manage on their own. From repair to restoration, professional remediation service is often far more cost-effective. You can rely on our SERVPRO of Phoenix technicians to help you overcome the mess and get your doors back open quickly. Give us a call today at (480) 503-2090. We are available 24/7 to help your business recover from storm damage to your business.
