How SERVPRO Can Help When it Comes to Flood Damage in Your Raleigh Store
When Flooding Affects Your Raleigh Retail Store
The responsibilities of managing your Raleigh retail store unfortunately also come with maintenance and restoration duties when disaster strikes. When coastal storms hit land with enough force, this severe system can spell significant trouble for those in its path. Hurricanes, for example, can unleash several feet worth of rainfall over a brief period, even well inland. You need to have a plan of action which preserves your investment and your building, helping you to move forward in the aftermath of severe weather that allows for flooding.
One of the troublesome aspects of flood damages to your Raleigh business is how quickly this damage can spread throughout the building. With many construction materials and the content of the structure itself at risk, time is of the essence to help mitigate the situation so that it is not so detrimental to your business or to the possibility of reopening to the public in the immediate future. Our SERVPRO rapid response team can help you safeguard your stock that remains at risk throughout the disaster.
It is essential that one of your first calls should be to the insurance company that offers coverage for the building that you use. This agent can help you to understand what the insurance company needs to file a claim, and this often requires proof of the damage you believe occurred, as well as a catalog of the items that became ruined or irreparably damaged by the intruding water.
As tempting as it might be to begin this estimation and assessment on your own, it is better left to the SERVPRO estimator and project manager assigned to your project. These individuals get extensively trained in safe practices inspecting areas that could have extensive damage and considered dangerous for those without the appropriate safety equipment.
The critical thing to remember about flooding in your retail store is that the situation only stands to get worse the longer that you wait for professional assistance. Our SERVPRO of North Raleigh & Wake Forest team of professionals is available 24/7 to help you throughout every step of the restoration process following a flood in your building. Give us a call anytime at (919) 790-1222.
