Can Businesses Prepare for Potential Water Damage in Danbury?

Outside view of strip mall Water damage can have a significant negative effect on your business. You can count on SERVPRO for fast mitigation and remediation.

SERVPRO Offers Danbury Businesses a Proactive Protocol to Anticipate Water Disasters 

Although no Danbury water damage restoration company has a crystal ball, the probable effect of burst pipes, sewer backup, or other water mishaps on a business’s operations is no mystery. Without a thoughtful plan, your store, restaurant, or office risks temporary closure to manage the disruption. Unfortunately, more than 40 percent of companies that close for recovery from a disaster never reopen.

What Does SERVPRO Suggest for Commercial Customers Interested in Avoiding Unexpected Water Damage?

Our approach prepares us to help Danbury businesses with water damage and other disasters. Called the SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile (ERP), its development starts with an in-person assessment of your commercial building by one of our experienced project managers. Inspection of your layout, equipment, inventory, storage, retail floor, offices, staff lounges, and more, along with an understanding of your operations, gives us the data needed to evaluate your business’s water damage risk. Your part of the equation is to complete the prompts on our mobile app, sharing details that individualize disaster preparation, including:

  • Naming vendors or contractors who installed your equipment or systems
  • Clarification of your priorities should water or other disasters occur
  • Checklist of the names and contact information for trusted employees or other individuals who can act on your behalf if you are out of town or otherwise unavailable during a water damage emergency
  • Designation of SERVPRO as your preferred restoration company and authorization for us to proceed without delay when alerted of a water damage disaster

How Does an ERP Protect Your Business Interests?

After SERVPRO inspects your building and reviews your answers on the app, we make recommendations intended to reduce your exposure to significant harm from a water event. Following our advice helps inhibit the conditions that put you in the path of severe damage. If a water damage event occurs, the ERP is a concise digital document that guides SERVPRO’s responding crews, arming our technicians with information that helps them intervene early and effectively. 

Collaborate with SERVPRO of Danbury / Ridgefield to develop a personalized Emergency READY Profile to minimize the effects of a disaster on your business. Set up the initial assessment by calling (203) 791-0920.
