Preparing for a Restoration Project at Your Sunrise Business
Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, local businesses have had to face an unpredictable situation and learn to reach customers in new and different ways. In fact, the realization that something so unprecedented is possible might be the biggest lesson that comes from the pandemic.
But in spite of the circumstances, many business owners have found ways to continue growing and thriving.
While no one saw a worldwide pandemic coming, it is a good idea to plan for more commonplace and predictable problems that businesses can face. Those include natural disasters like fires, floods and, here in Florida, hurricanes.
Because your local SERVPRO team wants to be a resource for business owners in our area, we’ve put together some of the best advice we can to help ensure they have what they need to move forward after a disaster.
Help for Business Owners Who Need It
You can open your business again after a disaster strikes. In fact, in some cases, you can even be more successful than you were before it happened. These tips will help you get the process started:
Your disaster plan is vital. Prepare for disasters before one strikes, and you’ll be more prepared for the aftermath of a fire, flood or another natural disaster. It will help you feel less overwhelmed when dealing with the process if you’ve already planned what you’ll do. You may want to think about moving your business to a backup location so you can continue operating.
Document everything in detail. It’s smart to take plenty of pictures before you begin the cleanup process, so your insurance company can get a good look at exactly what happened. Also, you’ll want to put together an inventory of anything that was damaged or lost during the storms.
Ensure that you’re reaching out to key stakeholders. Staying in touch with your suppliers, your employees, your customers and your wider community can help ensure your business remains in people’s minds. Plus, you can let them know about new hours, temporary locations or your progress.
