Fire Damage Restoration For Auto Shop Owners In Bloomingdale
Rely on SERVPRO to Keep Your Shop Open During Cleanup from Fires
40% of all US businesses fail after a fire occurs, and 25% of those often go out of business within the following year, while 90% of them never make it longer than 2-years, due to the expenses involved in recovery. If these percentages impact your business, it becomes very personal.
Without having employees, managers, and owners prepared to cope with fire damage on your Bloomingdale property, all of the time, effort, and preparations to open a quality auto shop may be for naught. Plans for dealing with reoccurring disasters can be forgotten, or it may be that you simply never have the capital to do so. Regardless, not having the right restoration company on your side does not help. Ask us about our ERP Plan, Emergency READY Profile Plan to help prevent, or at least mitigate losses from fire or water.
Auto shop fires are unforgiving. If the flames themselves fail to reach business documents, smoke, ash, and soot can still take their toll. Document drying and restoration provided by SERVPRO can make all the difference in recovering valuable documents. It is important to record everything after a fire; this includes keeping a history of all expenses, phone call logs, and actions anyone takes towards recovery.
In most cases, you likely lease the space where you run your shop, which makes it just as important to contact your property owner as it does to let your insurance company know what has happened. You may even need to arrange for security to prevent thieves and vandals from entering the surrounding area, always avoid leaving until proper security is in place. Tools are very expensive.
If the building has exterior breaches, board-up and roof tarp assistance may be necessary to prevent exposure to outdoor elements. SERVPRO provides its customers with excellent services that can save what remains until you have a chance to begin restoration and also shut down any utilities that may cause further damage.
A fire occurring in your shop does not necessarily mean that you have to close. If it is at all possible, SERVPRO helps you remain operating, cordoning off sections under repair, and keeping you running while your restoration is underway.
