Retail Store Storm Damage & The Necessity of a Speedy Response

8/31/2021 (Permalink)

Severe weather such as storms and hurricanes can cause flooding that can devastate your retail store and interrupt business operations in just a few minutes. Depending on the extent of damage, you may need to close your business for several days or weeks to have the destruction repaired. Closing the doors can lead to a loss of revenue.

Acting quickly is crucial to avoid significant losses if you are dealing with commercial flood damage in your Cookeville retail store. Getting help from a remediation company can ensure that you get back to business quickly to avoid losing customers. Acting fast can also prevent mold infestation, which can sometimes cause effects to human health.

After flood water has entered your store, the loss of inventory will compromise your business operations. The stock in your store holds a large amount of capital. When you find ruined goods, you should immediately document the damage and the value of the products so that you can deduct the loss from your taxable income. Our team can help you separate the ruined inventory and document the damage for insurance claims purposes.

Even though it is not always possible to restore some flood-damaged merchandise, our crew can help you restore salvageable store fixtures and equipment. We can generally dry electronic equipment like computers and cash registers effectively. If the electronic equipment sustained damage, we also work with professionals who specialize in restoring electronic equipment.

Whatever the situation, our SERVPRO crew will develop a tailor-made plan to return your business to its preloss state. 

We have the experience to restore commercial properties after flood damage. Using the latest flood damage restoration techniques and equipment, like high-pressure pumps, our crew can remove the water from your business premises. Our top of the line moisture detection equipment enables us to inspect for moisture in hard-to-reach areas like high ceilings. Our restorers are able to quickly assess large areas of the building to see how moisture traveled. We can then dry the structure using air moving and dehumidifying equipment. Our SERVPRO team can also clean and disinfect the affected area using professional grade cleaning and sanitizing agents to eliminate the contaminants that came in with the floodwater.

After experiencing flood damage in your Cookeville retail store, SERVPRO of Cookeville/Carthage/Smithville/Woodbury can help you get back to business by restoring the structure. Call us 24/7 at 931-528-9292 for a quick remediation process that can make the damage seem “Like it never even happened.”
