Our Flood Damage Specialists Can Restore Your Merrimack Business
Commercial Flood Damage For Your Merrimack Business
When flooding occurs in Merrimack, many times the focus is on the residents who are displaced, and the damage done to their properties. However, many commercial buildings also suffer. Besides property damage and the possibly displaced employees, flooding in your jewelry store can create a loss of revenue and profits, damage to your inventory, a decrease in production and more.
Since you can’t stop the storms from coming, you should learn what to do to help safeguard your commercial structure in Merrimack from flooding and related losses. When the waters do come rushing in, and your building suffers flood damage, you need to enlist the help of a professional remediation company, such as SERVPRO. Our staff has the tools and training needed to help get your business back to looking the way it was before the flooding.
To protect your business, the first thing to do is to make sure you are covered. Commercial property insurance typically isn’t enough protection against flooding. Look over your policy and think about adding flood insurance.
When we arrive, the SERVPRO staff assesses the damages. In many flooding cases, we can remove merchandise and furniture as needed, such as jewelry and display cases in this case, to an off-site location while we restore the rest of the building. Truck-mounted pumps help us remove as much standing water as we can, then we can proceed with drying and restoring the rest of the building.
If your building is in a flood plain or low-lying area, you could be at a higher risk for flooding than those atop a hill. However, any location can possess vulnerabilities, and you should address any risks your building presents and shield it as much as you can against floods.
Floods aren’t always at record heights, but even small amounts of water getting inside can lead to damage. You can limit the destruction by sealing any weaknesses and cracks in your structure and adding a waterproofing layer to the building itself.
Make a plan as well in case a flood does occur. You can establish an emergency and plan to help protect your property, you and your employees including evacuation routes and offsite backup plans for any critical documents and data.
