Are you ready? Does your office have a flood disaster plan?

It is estimated that up to 50 percent of businesses that close due to a disaster, such as a major flood, never reopen! Of the businesses that do survive, the majority of them had a preparedness plan in place. Are you ready for whatever happens?

Preparation is a key component for making it through any size disaster, whether it is a small water damage or a major flood. The best time to plan is well before an event occurs. 

SERVPRO of South Huntington can develop an Emergency Ready Plan (ERP) for your business. This can serve as a quick reference of important building and contact information or can be a supplement to an existing program that you have. By working with SERVPRO of South Huntington to create your personalized ERP, you're taking proactive measures and establishing a relationship with us.

Precautionary steps to keep your home and office safe from storm damage

Precautionary steps to keep your home and office safe from storm damage

Even after watching the news and hearing the weather reports, bad weather can be unpredictable. So, try to take precautionary steps to keep your home and office safe from storm damage. 

It's a good idea to inspect your property before a storm hits. A leaky roof or window can cause big problems during extreme conditions such as a snow storm or heavy rain.

Some questions you may want to ask yourself as you inspect your home or business: 

  • Do all of your exterior doors and windows fit correctly?
  • Is your weather stripping in good condition?
  • When was the last time you took a look at your roof?

Loose shutters and rain gutters can also present a problem in high winds, as can unstable large trees. It might be a good idea to trim back trees and bushes with heavy branches, so that windows and vehicles are not in danger of storm damage in windy conditions.

Many homes have drainage ditches at the front of the property. Take time to inspect this area and remove debris or dirt that might obstruct the flow of water from a heavy rain. A clogged drainage ditch can cause a lot of damage by flooding your property during, or even after, a storm.
