Businesses face all kinds of risks
There are many kinds of situations that can negatively impact a business, including:
- Water damage
- Smoke damage
- Mold issues
- Storm damage
- Biohazard situations
- Crime situations
While some of the above circumstances can be addressed and remediated fairly quickly, other situations may cause severe impact on the ability of a company to do business as normal. As many as 50% of businesses close following a disaster, according to the latest research.
The value of being prepared
While it’s nearly impossible to plan for every situation that may impact a business, of the businesses that survive, the overwhelming majority of them had a preparedness plan in place. Pre-planning can serve as an insurance policy aimed at peace of mind. Knowing you are ready for whatever happens speaks trust to your clients and employees that in the event your business is affected by a disaster, they don't necessarily have to be.
How can businesses be prepared? Start by developing a SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile (ERP) for your business interruption to have an immediate plan of action. Knowing what to do and what to expect in advance is the key to timely mitigation and can help minimize how water damage, fire damage or other adverse circumstances can affect your business.
Preparation is key
Preparation is a key component for making it through any size disaster, whether it's a small water leak, a large fire or an area flood. The best time for planning for such events is not when the event happens, but well before it happens. No one ever plans on a disaster, but you can plan for it. Now is the time to ask yourself if your business is ready for any emergency. If not, contact SERVPRO of Phoenix today at 480-503-2090 and get prepared today!
