SERVPRO Employee discussing restoration plan with business owner SERVPRO of Jefferson County knows the commercial restoration process inside and out. Here are some of our best tips in choosing the right restoration

If you’re a business owner in Adams, our team has a question for you to consider: When was the last time you evaluated your business disaster plan?

For those that might answer “never,” it’s a good idea to think about what you need to do to keep your business going if a fire, flood or storm strikes. Even if you have a solid plan prepared already, it’s essential to evaluate it on occasion. Your business and your needs can change, and your plan should reflect that.

Because we regularly work with business owners who need our expertise and support to complete a restoration process, we know that even the most prepared business owners sometimes have difficulty moving forward and knowing what to do when faced with a natural disaster.

Our team already knows a lot about what it takes to get a business up and running again. We’ve pulled together our best tips to help local business owners who may need our services.

Getting Your Business Restoration Project Moving

Here’s what you might want to consider if your business needs restoration services:

Follow your outlined plan. It may seem simple, but the shock of dealing with a disaster can make it difficult to think clearly. That’s what your disaster plan is for. Follow the steps you laid out and look at your options, which could include moving to a backup location.

Get your insurance company the information they need—fast. You’ll be asked to provide things like photos of the items’ damage and inventory inside your business. Have these prepared and ready to share.

Keep members of your community in the loop. Stay connected with your suppliers, your employees, your customers and your community.. Social media is the right way for you to reach your wider community, but consider reaching out personally to your employees, suppliers and your loyal customers.

If your business is damaged due to fire, water or any other cause, you can always count on us for restoration assistance. We have crews who are available 247 in the event of an emergency. Contact us at any time to learn more about our restoration services and how we can help you.

Working hard to keep Jefferson County residents safe

As some know, we have been offering and performing COVID-19 disinfection since the beginning of the pandemic. We cannot thank our employees enough for being diligent with practicing social distancing, wearing their masks, and staying healthy so they can better serve our community.

We are regularly performing proactive and post exposure disinfections at many local businesses. We strictly adhere to all CDC recommendations while performing this work. Our employees are protected with Tyvek suits and respirators. 

We strive to go above and beyond with all of our services, this is no different. We know that there are other companies offering services for a much lower cost, but the work is not being performed correctly. Per the CDC, high touch areas must be cleaned prior to disinfection. This means that going in and just "fogging" an area isn't good enough. We take the time to make sure every high touch area is cleaned, then disinfected, and we then fog as a final step as we are leaving.

With all products, especially disinfectants, there is what is called a "dwell time". This is the amount of time that the product has to stay wet in order to be as effective as claimed. When an area is just fogged and a company is in and out in a short amount of time, it's almost impossible to know that the dwell time was adhered to. We take the extra time to ensure that the dwell time is reached.

We know that things revolving around COVID-19 will be evolving for quite some time. We are working hard to make sure that we have the most up to date information to help keep the communities that we love and live in safe.
