When Floods Strike, Speed Means Everything
As time ticks away after a flood, the negative effects begin compounding. Businesses need help quickly. More specifically, they need a water damage restoration company that provides 24 hours, around-the-clock service, and can deliver prompt attention, even in the wee hours when only vampires are active in Cele, TX.
What Can Happen When a Business Gets Flooded
The first 24 hours after a flood are crucial. Here's why:
In just seconds, file cabinets containing critical records can be permeated and computers destroyed.
In a single day, a nasty smell can permeate the building, and any metal equipment or furniture can become irreparably harmed.
Between two days and a week after flooding, even more, serious damage may result, such as expensive wood floors bowing and cracking.
While that first 24 hour period is critical, once more than seven days have flown by, the expense of cleaning up the mess will have increased exponentially. In worst-case scenarios, the resale value of the space may become compromised forever.
Why It's Important To Receive a Rapid Damage Assessment
Any business can be brought to a standstill overnight when there’s a flood. That’s why it’s critical for an insurance claim to be made immediately. Without that, the cleanup can’t begin, and every additional day a company remains closed means more lost revenue.
Before that claim can be made, however, your property needs a thorough assessment — and it needs it ASAP. Fast response means less damage and decreased economic fallout. Because SERVPRO is always open, it's a preferred vendor for most insurance agencies. SERVPRO can send a team to any business within 60 minutes and provide an assessment within just eight hours. That means businesses will be able to make an insurance claim before things worsen.
Speedy, 24-hour turnaround is merely one way that SERVPRO, a nationally preferred vendor, is Here to Help. When the worst happens and a flood takes its toll, promptly starting the insurance claim process is a vital first step in mitigating unnecessary costs.
