A business can have a flood at any time, although water damage most often occurs during heavy rainfall. Basements are inherently prone to water intrusion because they are the lowest level of a building and are normally built partly or entirely below ground level – this is also where busineses typically store important documents and inventory. There are a number of reasons why your Rosedale business could flood, including:

  •  A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface Fire to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Fire supply-line break or hot-Fire tank failure
  • And many more

Important Tips on Disaster Safety from the International Code Council for Commercial and Property Managers

5/15/2017 (Permalink)

May is National Building Safety Month. Building Safety Month is an opportunity to education insurance and commercial property professionals as well as the general public on “what it takes to create safe, resilient, affordable and energy efficient homes and buildings,” according to the ICC website. The theme for  this week is managing natural disasters!

Here are some life and property saving tips on Disaster Safety and Mitigation from the ICC!

  • If you live in a high wind or hurricane prone area and do not have tested and code approved shutters for protection from windborne debris, consider temporarily protecting your doors and windows by mounting with exterior grade 7/16" minimum thickness plywood and fastening it into place. Go to http://flash.org/peril_inside.php?id=108 to learn how.
  • Consider buidling or retrofitting to create a tornado safe room in your business. Follow ICC/NSSA 500 standard for detailed construction information and how to achieve the highest level of protection for your business or tenants.
  • In Wildfire prone areas, remove fine (dead grass, leaves, etc.) within 30 feet of a building to create a survivable space in case of a wildfire. Be sure to remove dry leaf and pine litters from roofs, rain gutters, decks and walkways.
  • Flooded roads could have significant damage hidden by flood waters. Never drive through floodwaters or on flooded roads. Do not attempt to cross a flowing stream. Remember it only takes 6 inches of water to sweep you off your feet and 2 feet to move an SUV sized vehicle.

Ellicott City Disaster: How to protect your business from an unexpected Weather event

Ellicott City Disaster: How to Protect your Business

From an Unexpected Weather Event

On July 30th, Ellicott City experienced a catastrophic flash flood when 8 inches of rain fell in 3 hours. The two water ways, which are usually streams, rose to 8 feet each as they converged under the bridge. This resulted in 125 water rescues, and a raging river of floating cars bashing in through business windows and two people died. Scores of businesses were destroyed and for the past 2 months, fundraisers have been popping up all over the state to help alleviate the businesses so they can reopen.

What would you do if your business experienced a disaster such as this? How would you even begin?

Business Emergency checklist for disaster recovery:

 

Keep all files handy, have a copy on the cloud and a hardcopy in a fireproof safe

Designate a person in the office to maintain safety

Have an escape plan

Have important numbers on file

Follow weather media, as well as phone flash flood warnings. Take them seriously.

Prepare a kit

Have an Emergency fund ready

How can you operate without electricity, or operational store front – mobilize business if possible

Self Check: Could your business handle a disaster if you were out of town?

Do you have flood, earthquake or any other natural disaster coverage? (did you know it takes 30 days for flood insurance to take effect, most insurance companies do not include Flood, or even sewage coverage and should always be asked for).

Don’t have enough time to do this all yourself? SERVPRO of Perry Hall White Marsh is sponsor of the American Red Cross Ready Rating Program, and we offer Emergency Ready Plans for free. Just give us a call and we will set one up for you.

Is Your Perry Hall White Marsh Business Prepared?

Commercial Is Your Perry Hall White Marsh Business Prepared? Mobile Emergency Ready App

     Is your business prepared in case a disaster or emergency situation should occur? Disasters and resulting business interruptions can devastate companies; in fact, as many as 50% of businesses that experience a disaster never reopen. With the proper planning and proactive restoration, you can be better prepared to survive a disaster should one occur.

     The need and benefit of having a detailed emergency action plan is crucial. A well-developed plan can help mitigate the effects of disasters and help you return to business quickly, saving time, unnecessary frustration and money. Those few minutes and hours immediately following a loss can be significant in determining the amount of time the property will be non-functional. Fast response can mean the difference between restoration and cleaning versus costly replacement resulting from prolonged exposure and secondary damage.

     Developing a solid working contingency plan and networking with reputable vendors to assist you in your time of need are essential in your recovery efforts. Having a reliable company to respond immediately and begin emergency procedures is a critical part of any contingency plan. As part of a Franchise System, SERVPRO® of Perry Hall/White Marsh has access to over 10,000 quality teammates with thousands of pieces of commercial equipment and service vehicles that can typically respond to a crisis within hours.

     SERVPRO® of Perry Hall/White Marsh can provide you a free emergency preparedness plan to help minimize interruption, overall costs and tenant inconvenience. Listed below are some of the items that are found in the Emergency Response Profile:

  • Immediate Response Checklist - An organized and prioritized list of persons who need to be contacted when an emergency occurs, including insurance contacts and emergency service providers.
  •  Building and Grounds Information - Building statistics and key support companies (i.e. security, engineering and elevator).
  • Content Information – Inventories of contents and locations of valuable documents, articles and other important items. This also includes machinery and office equipment inventory lists and information as well as vital documents and records.

      As a free service to you, we will catalog all of this important information into a customized Emergency Response Profile for your property or properties. Call us today at 410-529-1664 for a straight, no-nonsense discussion on how to get your facility back up and running following an adverse situation.
