Commercial Rapid Response to Rochester Water Damage Customers depend on your store to pick up the items that they need before heading to an event. Contact SERVPRO right after an incident.

Team SERVPRO Arrives Equipped to Dry Out Your Water Damaged Business Quickly

For a Rochester business, any disaster can mean twice the loss. There is the damage to the building that needs repair and the inventory that needs cleaning or preserving to sell it. There is also the loss of sales income each day that the doors are closed to customers.
 
SERVPRO knows that Rochester commercial water damage does not have to destroy a business to shut it down. Many businesses operate on close margins and need to be open every day to ensure they can pay the rent, utilities, and their employees when the first of the month rolls around again. We do everything we can to remove water and reopen doors as quickly as possible.
 
In a small business like a convenience store, most of the goods are non-perishable. That is unless a broken sink sprays water across the backroom and shuts down a refrigerator case. Then, we have a very short amount of time to dry it out and return it to service.
 
Usually, we concentrate on drying the floors first, but this is a very unusual situation. The owner can stock the items in another case temporarily, but overstocking eventually lowers the temperature and results in more spoiled products. Even if the store can partially reopen, there is the nuisance factor, since customers who run in for a cold soda do not want to take it home to chill it. In this circumstance, SERVPRO technicians start immediately to dry out the case once we stop the source of the leak and remove any water from the floor with pumps and water extractors.
 
As long the water did not short out the motor, we can restore function within an hour or two by directing an air mover to force warm, dry air under the case and into the motor compartment. Once we finish with the air movers, a technician uses drying cloths to remove the last trace of moisture around the motor. As he or she takes care of this emergency task, the rest of the response team uses more air movers to completely dry the floor and dehumidifiers to lower the interior humidity.
 
Even when reopening to customers may take a day or two, many businesses still need a response of only hours or minutes to preserve their inventory. If you need our help, SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester maintains an on-call 24-hour response team to take of whatever the need may be. Call (603) 743-4301 today to learn more.

Why Inventory Matters When It Comes To Water Damage In Dover Restaurants

Commercial Why Inventory Matters When It Comes To Water Damage In Dover Restaurants The ERP Can Mitigate Water Damage in Your Dover Restaurant and Keep Your Food Cooking

Restaurant Stock Costs Money, Protect Your Investment with SERVPRO's ERP Plan

Water damage is a risk for most restaurants. Most business owners take great care of their premises, but the best care in the world cannot always prevent a broken dishwasher, damaged roof, or leaking faucet. Water damage happens faster than you think, and for Dover business owners that means having to shut up shop for removal and cleanup.
 
SERVPRO recommends all restaurants in the Dover area take note of their inventory, in preparation for water damage. When a problem arises, it is too late to notice what is on the premises and what to move, save, or otherwise protect from moisture. Draw up a list of everything you have, before disaster strikes.
 
The best place to start is food and beverages. Keep an up to date inventory of all foodstuffs and drinks kept in your business. Take note of items that you need to move when a leak or spill happens. For example, you might relocate all your stores of baking ingredients to a different room if their location gets wet.
 
Know in advance what you have, and where to put it to get it out of harm’s way. Do not stop with perishables, however. Paper such as ledgers and wage slips is susceptible to water damage, and so is electronic equipment such as your computer, cash register, card reader, or telephone. Plan to move any vulnerable items as soon as you spot a leak.
 
One of the easiest ways to take stock of everything in your business is SERVPRO’s Emergency Ready Plan. ERP is an app which is free to download. We recommend installing it on a tablet so you can walk through your business while you follow the on-screen instructions.
 
Taking inventory is helpful in other ways as well. Keeping an up to date list means you can better manage your stocks and buying cycle, which helps keep your business in good financial shape.
 
Do not forget to include your local SERVPRO representative as a contact in your Emergency Ready Profile. That way, you can contact us quickly in the event of water damage so we can act fast and restore your business “Like it never even happened.”
