Commercial building with fire. If you are in need of anything, call SERVPRO of St. Cloud at (320) 248-5400!

Your family depends on your business. As well as your employees, customers, and community. That is why the thought of commercial water damage caused by extreme weather, fire, or plumbing failure is scary.

However, you do not have to be fearful. With a little planning and a few precautions it will help you breathe a little easier. This is because you will know you are ready for the commercial water damage contingency.

Commercial Water Damage Tip:

Think it Through

Start by asking yourself, “What if?”

That is a powerful question when it comes to lowering commercial water damage risk.

For example, what if a water main bursts and floods your office? 

This always leads to more questions, such as how will you ensure the safety of your employees and customers? How will you communicate with employees during emergencies or periods of disruption (when a pipe bursts and requires the main power to be shut off during repairs)? 

Make notes of your answers to all your questions because organizing this information is the basis for the next key step in preventing and minimizing commercial water damage.

Commercial Water Damage Tip:

Make a Plan

While thinking through possible commercial water damage scenarios for your business, you made notes of the solutions you came up with for your “what if?” questions.
