As a Fort Worth community member, we want local businesses to succeed and thrive—even after a disaster.

So our team has pulled together some of the information and advice they need to ensure their companies can be quickly and efficiently restored after a fire, flood or another natural disaster.

Walking Through the Restoration Process

Here are some of our team’s best advice members can offer to help local business owners through the steps to restore their business after a fire, flood or other natural disasters:

Don’t forget to let your disaster plan guide you. It can be hard to focus after your business is damaged. You can use your disaster plan to help you move forward. Review your list and follow the steps you laid out before the disaster.

Take photos and an inventory. Before you start cleaning up, take plenty of pictures of the damage and make a thorough list of any destroyed, damaged or lost items. If you can, add their values, too. Photos and lists are the type of information your insurance company will need.

Look for ways to help your employees. The people who work in your business will be affected by the disaster, too. Look for resources to help through organizations like the Small Business Administration (SBA).

Keep the people who matter to your business in the loop. Don’t neglect reaching out to your suppliers, your employees, your customers and your community..

Be strategic when you’re selecting your partners. Working with a trusted restoration resource in the community can ensure the work is done right—and that your business is back to its original state before you open your doors again.

If your business is damaged due to fire, water or any other cause, you can always count on us for restoration assistance. We have crews who are available 247 in the event of an emergency. Contact us at any time to learn more about our restoration services and how we can help you.

Sewage? What should you do? Panic? Shout?

Imagine you arrive at your business tomorrow morning and immediately notice the disturbing sight and foul odor of raw sewage and contaminated water on the floor. Unfortunately, back-ups happen. It could be due to a plumbing issue, a result of work on the city sewer system, or even vandalism.

First, stay out of affected areas as much as possible and avoid contact with contaminated surfaces. Don’t walk through the wet areas or touch items that appear contaminated.

Limit the air movement in the building. Don’t use the HVAC system or set up fans to dry the wet areas. Contaminants can become airborne and spread to unaffected surfaces and to other rooms.

Call SERVPRO of North Fort Worth at 817-232-3333 so we can get a crew dispatched to your location, start on clean up right away, and minimize interruption to your business.
