A SERVPRO Commercial Emergency Ready Plan
There are almost 1 million small businesses across North Carolina, with almost 2 million employees. That would roughly be 45% of the workforce across the state. That is a staggering number and a huge boon for us! It’s Truly Amazing how great our small state is for Entrepreneurs. Winston Salem is currently in the midst of re-energizing downtown and the triad itself is growing exponentially every year.
With all that growth, there is bound to be some downfall. Most Small Businesses fail within 3 years, and it’s not always the business’s fault. We encounter some that go under because of infrastructure and plain old bad luck and timing. One of the best courses of action to prevent a catastrophic loss for your company is an Emergency Readiness Plan ( ERP )
What is an Emergency Readiness Plan?
ERP is the best way to mitigate damages to your company in case of a loss which may include
- Fire or smoke damage from faulty wiring
- Fire damage from a restaurant kitchen fire
- Water heater failure
- Sewage back up
- Previous water damage that was not mitigated properly
- Leaking Roof
- Dirty HVAC
- Crime or Vandalism
- Flash flooding
Most Homeowners are not able to locate their water shut-off valve, so to assume your employees know where that may be located is just plain bad planning. Fortunately for the small business in Winston-Salem, we provide an ERP for Free! All you need to do is call and set up a time and date, and one of our associates will come out and set everything up. We recently updated our program to include an App, but it’s also easily accessible online, or we can always print a quick folder for you to keep in your office.
