SERVPRO Suggests Mitigation Measures
With its fast response, SERVPRO mitigates further damage to a building. However, the company also suggests that commercial property owners and managers take steps to minimize additional harm while they wait for SERVPRO to arrive at the scene.
For starters, everyone in your company should understand that water from a stream, river or creek is likely contaminated with bacteria or other harmful items. Only the professionals should touch this water and anything it contaminated. Food items, including canned goods, that contacted the water should be thrown out.
If it is safe to enter the property after the disaster, make sure to wear protective clothes and sturdy shoes. Wet cushions or upholstery should be removed for drying. You can also wipe away excess water on wooden furniture.
Hurricanes and other major storms can cause flooding in Northwest Las Vegas, NV. Meanwhile, dryness and heavy winds can lead to devastating wildfires. SERVPRO has experience with these and other types of natural disasters. The company can thus assist your clients following a catastrophic loss.
