Commercial property owners and managers who establish a Commercial Emergency Restoration Management Plan (Commercial ERM Plan) with a reputable restoration service reap practical emergency services after disaster strikes. (See Trilink’s Comprehensive Guide to Commercial Emergency Restoration Management to help you plan ahead.)
Nobody expects disaster to strike their business, but the fact of the matter is—it could happen to any business. So, just as it’s important to have insurance in place when you need it, it’s vital to have an emergency restoration management plan in place should your business ever need it. Restoration companies give top priority to businesses that are hit with fire, flood, tornado, or other disasters.
Imagine making one simple call as soon as disaster strikes, and having professional restoration assistance arrive with all hands on deck. Your commercial property and its contents are their first priority. When a commercial property has a Commercial ERM Plan in place, what happens after a disaster includes:
- The business owner or manager calls the emergency restoration service and informs them of the disaster that occurred at their business. If disaster strikes in the middle of the night, no problem. The restoration service is on call and ready to help 24/7.
- The disaster passes. The fire is put out by the fire department, or the tornado or storm has passed through the area.
- Contents restoration begins. Disaster doesn’t just impact your business’s structure, it impacts the contents within your building too. Content can be damaged at various times:
During the disaster—For example, your office furniture may incur fire damage during the initial breakout of fire.
During the rescue efforts—For example, water damage from the fire hoses during the rescue may damage your office contents.
In the immediate aftermath of disaster—For example, smoke or fire odor damage may occur to your building’s contents after the disaster has ended.
- Contents management starts with a content pack out— In the immediate aftereffects of disaster, it’s vital that your building’s contents are dealt with quickly to avoid additional damage. Disaster recovery restoration and cleanup begins with the packing of all your business’s damaged contents including furniture, media, photos, electronics, artwork, books, documents, and more. Your building’s contents are removed and relocated to safety.
- Items are assessed for the damage type such as smoke damage, water damage, mold or mildew damage.
- A plan of action is developed and put into motion.
- Inventory of your items are taken, and a detailed list is provided to you and your insurance company. Each item is described, photographed, and assigned a number, a box number, and a room location so your property can be tracked accurately and safely cared for.
- Your building’s contents are cleaned and deodorized through the TRILINK state-of-the-art cleaning and drying processes and specialty equipment. Electronics are ozone cleaned, as insurance requires. Ultrasonic precision cleaning equipment ensures the highest level of quality and care for your business’s contents.
- Items are stored in a secure, climate-controlled facility until your building is restored.
- Owners go through each item to inspect and verify they are satisfied with each item’s restored condition.
- The restoration company delivers your business’s restored property back to you. They unpack your property and help you with set up so you can resume business as quickly as possible.
- Property damage is repaired—When the contents of your commercial property are removed, restoration to the building’s structure begins. Drywall and other damages are dealt with as needed.
- Water extraction and dryer services are performed as needed—Upholstery and carpets are cleaned and restored.
- Your business returns back to normal!
