Getting your business ready to open again after a disaster

2/19/2021 (Permalink)

If you’re like most Gulf Coast residents, you’ve learned a lot about the unpredictability of life during the COVID-19 pandemic. After all, no one saw a pandemic coming.

Business owners have been hit particularly hard during the pandemic. They’ve had to search for new ways to operate and connect with customers and manage new and shifting obligations (like transforming the dining room into a virtual classroom).

While most of us had no plans to deal with 2020, diligent business owners always have strategies for dealing with more common disasters, like a fire, destructive storm or flooding.

Having the plans and implementing them in the face of disaster, however, are different things.

We work with business owners all the time, so we know what it takes to get your business up and running again. Here’s some of the best advice we can give business owners facing a restoration scenario.

From Disaster to Reopening

Because we want to help business owners thrived, we’ve pulled together some of the best tips to help you deal with the restoration process:

Don’t forget about your plans. This sounds simple, but it can be challenging to work through your programs after something as jarring as a natural disaster. Remember your plans and why you’ve put them in place. Depending on your business, that may include moving to a backup location.

Assist your employees as you can. Don’t forget this disaster will impact your employees, too. You can reach out to organizations like the Small Business Administration (SBA) for help.

Document and photograph the damage. You’ll want to take photographs before you clean up the damage. You’ll also want to inventory everything that was damaged. Your insurance company will need this vital information, so be prepared to provide it.

Regularly out to critical stakeholders. It’s easier now than it’s ever been to reach out to your suppliers, your employees, your customers and your community. You can use everything from social media and an email list to an old-fashioned phone call.

Work with the right partners.Choose competent professionals to work on your restoration process and repair any of the damage. It will make opening up again easier.

If a fire, flood or any other cause damages your business, 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
