How to Keep Your Business Operations Productive During Restoration Cleanup

Did you know that 50% of businesses experience some sort of disaster and tend to not recover fully from the issues. When a company is not fully prepared for the worst, returning business operations to 100% capacity is incredibly difficult.

At A&J Property Restoration, we work with all types of commercial properties to provide disaster restoration services for all types of emergencies. As a property and business owner, there are steps you can take to insure your business operations continue during the disaster restoration cleanup process. Read on to find out what steps to take to keep your business functioning during restoration.

Tips to Keeping Your Business Operations Running During Restoration Work 

  • First thing to do is to make sure that you have a disaster plan in place. Safety is always first for every business owner. Planning for any disaster type keeps you and your employees as safe as possible. During the creation of your disaster plan, steps are written out to handle all the processes necessary to alert emergency services and the best ways to keep your building (and people) safe and sound. 
  • Second step to keeping your business running smoothly is to contact your insurance provider. Once you have assessed the damages, contacting your insurance company will keep the restoration process moving. They can tell you exactly what is covered and how to proceed to start working with a restoration company. Your insurance provider will have you document all areas that were hit by the disaster for your claim. It’s imperative that you keep excellent records including written statements, photos, even video to hand over to your insurance agent. With A&J Property Restoration working on your case, our experts will handle all communication with your insurance company, including claims and documentation, giving you one less thing to handle during this stressful time.
  • Set realistic expectations with your staff and customers. Once you know the scope of your reconstruction plan, it’s  up to you to relay the information to your customers. Will you keep normal business hours? Will the physical location remain open? What about the different departments within your business? Will any of them experience displacement from their typical routine? If so, how will you help them prepare for remote work?
