Have A Contingency Plan For Water Damage To Your Bentonville Warehouse
SERVPRO Offers the ERP Plan for Pro-Active Readiness for Water Damaging Events
Water damage is a nightmare for any warehouse manager. Warehouses are used to store stock, and of course, damage to that stock could be expensive for your business. Replacing stock in the large quantities stored in a warehouse is untenable for many businesses.
SERVPRO believes that the best way to save your stock in the event of water damage to your Bentonville warehouse is to have a contingency plan in place. You cannot prevent every instance of water damage, but there are some things you can do to reduce the risk. You can also have a plan in place so that when water does enter your warehouse, you are prepared and able to take swift action.
Start with a facility assessment. Familiarize yourself with all the places where water could get into your warehouse: Areas of wear and tear (especially around plumbing), any small or larger leaks, and blocked drains, HVAC systems and through faulty roof drainage.
Take action on as many at-risk areas as you can. Get clogged drains unclogged, and get any leaks fixed as soon as possible. Have your HVAC systems maintained regularly and check roof drainage for any issues. Reroute water where you can.
Make regular facility inspections part of your business life. You can contact your insurer if you need a little guidance – they do not want to deal with a leaky warehouse either and can often offer advice and information.
Some warehouse managers decide that having the warehouse coated with a waterproof coating is a worthwhile investment; the amount spent on it could be less than you stand to lose if your stock gets water damaged.
It is also a good idea to familiarize yourself with your local restoration experts before you need them.
