How to deal with a flooded business?
Steps to Recovery After Flooding
When your business floods there are some important steps to take to get your business back into shape quickly.
- Call a mitigation company first - commercial insurance companies don't want you to wait to get help. The longer the water sits the worse the damage will become.
- Remove electronics and documents - humidity will raise very quickly inside the building after a flood.
- Prepare to be out of office for a week - the demolition should only take a day depending on the damage. However, the drying time for most flooded properties is between 5-7 days.
Having a good plan on how to recover after a flood is the best way to get back to business quickly.
