business man in office talking to female SERVPRO rep SERVPRO of Alamo Heights is here for your business every step of the way, from ERPs to disaster recovery.

It can be really overwhelming to think about the potential of suffering from a disaster situation at your business. You do so much on a daily basis to ensure everything is running smoothly that it can keep you up at night to think of how destructive a simple fire, flood or a storm can be to your property.

While we can’t prevent natural disasters or true accidents from happening, we can help you recover from them! SERVPRO of Alamo Heights is here 247 to handle your entire restoration from start to finish, no matter how extensive the damage is.

Easy Preparation Tips

The best way to ensure a quick recovery after disaster strikes is to have a plan already in place and to ensure your employees to know what to expect. If your team knows what to do, everyone can respond appropriately and that can help with a smooth transition from disaster to recovery.

One important aspect of your plan should center around communication. Have a reliable way of spreading information quickly, via either an email chain, group text or announcement, and make sure everyone who has specific jobs understands what is expected of them.

This should also include taking a tour of your building to point out important things like fire extinguishers, emergency exits and water shut-off valves. Even if you have a custodial or maintenance staff that would normally handle emergencies, it can add another layer of protection if your team can respond just as fast.

Finally, your communication plan should include steps on what to do and where to go following a disaster situation. Set up remote work policies or have a backup location in mind that your team can travel to if in-person work is necessary for your business.

Tips for Recovery

If you have a plan, you can rest assured that your business will be on the path to recovery faster than if you simply reacted to the situation at hand. We will work off of that recovery plan and help restore and rebuild your home quickly.

We will focus on rebuilding your physical location so you can focus on your customers and employees. Communicate with them throughout the process and keep the information flowing so everyone knows what is going on and when you expect to be open again.

While you might have to immediately be displaced from your building, chances are that we will be able to get you back into your space quickly, even if it is in a limited capacity for a time. We will work with you so you can minimize your downtime while we still are able to work how we need to.

Always have a plan in place for various disaster situations, but remember that we are here to help you overcome any damage your business suffers. We are trained in large-loss recovery, and we will take great care of you.
