Tips to Help Business Owners Thrive After a Commercial Restoration Project
Your business has what it takes to thrive even after damage has been done. But you need to know the best steps to take to help you move forward. Here’s what we recommend:
Your disaster plan is vital. It’s difficult for most business owners and their families to focus and think clearly after a damaging event. That’s why it’s smart to plan for these situations before they happen. Before you need it, build an emergency plan and spend time reviewing and learning the steps. If you’re impacted by a disaster, read the steps you laid out again (or a few times) and follow them carefully.
Document the damage you’ve suffered. Take plenty of pictures. You’ll want to do these before you start cleaning up the damage so your insurance company can get an accurate picture of what happened. In the age of COVID-19, more insurance companies are using virtual programs and videos to obtain the what is needed. Also, inventory lost or damaged items. We highly recommend you take photos of inventory well in advance of issues coming up so you’re able to compare and document much easier should damage occur.
Stay in touch with your stakeholders. Regular contact with your suppliers, your employees, your customers and your community will put you in a better position when it’s time to open again. Social media can be a huge help with communication especially with clients and customers in addition to emails and phone calls.
Choose solid partners for mitigation and restoration. Don’t work with any restoration company that isn’t highly experienced, doesn’t communicate regularly and isn’t able to utilize advanced equipment designed to restore your business to its original state.
