When you own a business, you have to be good at planning and creating strategies. You probably have a strategy for acquiring new customers or clients. You probably have a detailed business plan with quarterly and yearly goals.
Do you have a plan in place if your New Castle, DE business suffers from a fire?
It’s something you don’t anticipate happening, and with all the responsibilities you already have, you may not feel its worth the time to have a fire damage restoration plan in place. But if your business does suffer from a fire or water damage and you don’t know the next step to take, you’ll regret it.
Time is a crucial element when it comes to post fire restoration. The more time you let pass by, the more complicated the process becomes.
In order to get your business back on its feet as soon as possible, use some of the tips below to create a restoration plan in case something catastrophic occurs:
Contact all employees after the incident occurs to instruct them on what to do next. Will they have the ability to work from home, to work at another location, or will they simply be out of work?
Make sure to have a restoration company’s information available—preferably ServiceMaster by ARTec’s—prior to any catastrophe so that you’ll know exactly who to call when disaster strikes.
Have a list of people you’ll need to contact once the restoration process begins. This list can include phone and Internet providers, shipping companies, or security providers; the list will be unique to your situation. The idea is to be able to notify parties or companies that are connected to your business easily.
Make sure to note any daily business activities that still need to proceed even if a fire occurs and plan how you’re going to do it. This will allow you to keep important parts of your business running regardless of the situation.
These are just a few of the items that can go on your fire or water damage restoration plan. The point is to be prepared. As part of your preparation process, you’ll want to work with a company that has a proven background in proving fire or water damage restoration services.
