Commercial Restoration for Your Highland Park Business
If your small business has been impacted by a natural disaster, it can be a time fraught with uncertainty. Between recovery, ensuring the safety of your employees and restoring your building to continue operations, there are many things to consider—and with small businesses being impacted more severely than large businesses in the wake of a natural disaster, recovering can begin to feel like a daunting task.
As leaders in commercial restoration, we have helped many business owners reopen following a natural disaster and are here to be a resource for you. Below we have compiled our top tips for recovery after your business has been hit by a natural disaster, so you can get back in business faster.
Assess and Document the Damages
It is important to never re-enter a building until emergency personnel have declared it to be safe, but once that happens, taking stock of the damages and documenting them is vital to the restoration process. By having documentation of the damage, you can provide your insurance company with more information to go toward your claim in order to provide proof of the issues you are facing. Additionally, this is a good time to check in with key employees, vendors and clients to determine they are safe and evaluate any interruption in their own workflow.
Explore Recovery Options
Knowing where to turn to for assistance during the recovery process will help you receive aid and get your business reopened much more quickly. The U.S. Small Business Administration offers low-interest disaster loans and other resources for business owners to learn more about disaster preparedness and recovery processes.
Contact a Commercial Restoration Company
Working with the right company to handle your restoration is one of the best things you can do for the longevity of your business. Be sure to watch out for post-disaster restoration scams that often pop up to prey on vulnerable victims, and instead choose a company with a proven record for quality work and a strong local presence. Look for a company with a 24⁄7 emergency line so you can report your damage at any hour, and be sure they have highly trained technicians who have experience in commercial restoration.
