Advantages of Having a SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile
Advantages of Having a SERVPRO
A disaster isn’t something anyone wants to contemplate. However, if the unthinkable occurs, an emergency plan that's already in place could literally save your business. By creating an Emergency Ready Profile (ERP) through SERVPRO, you’re one step closer to keeping your business safe. An emergency profile puts a plan in place. This plan serves to mitigate loss from a fire or water disaster as soon as possible. Consider these advantages:
1. Damage Is Minimized
Fire and water disasters not only cause direct damage, but they can also cause secondary damage (e.g., mold and smoke damage). Some secondary damage may be unavoidable, but it can be greatly minimized if the restoration process begins promptly.
2. Business Inactivity Is Reduced
It’s been found that 50% of businesses that sustain damage after a major fire or water event never reopen post-disaster. The faster the mitigation process starts, the more chance the business has of surviving.
3. The Plan Is Set and Ready
All the necessary information is in one place, making it available to you and the professionals. This ensures that mitigation and restoration start immediately upon arrival. Your emergency profile will include emergency contact numbers and an emergency plan checklist. It’ll also include information that you may not even think about needing until a disaster occurs (e.g., utility valve shut-off locations and water and shut-off instructions). A complete overview of your property will point out emergency exits and illustrate evacuation routes. Your insurance information will also be outlined.
4. The Mobile App Makes It Convenient
SERVPRO’s ERP app puts all the information you need at your fingertips. It includes your entire ERP in addition to the contact information of your SERVPRO location; you can even contact them directly from the app.
