SERVPRO of Central Garden Grove is your local commercial disaster team. Contact us to learn more about our commercial damage restoration services.

Our country runs on our local businesses. Whether it’s the one you work for or the one you frequent regularly, these businesses give a lot to our communities.

On a typical day, business owners have a lot on their plate, handling the ins and outs of running a commercial entity. When calamity hits, it can be devastating to a company’s productivity and income.

The amount of damage caused by natural disasters is continuously growing over time. In fact, the NCEI reports that over the last five years, the United States has suffered an average of $153 billion worth of damage annually. This is a significant increase from the last recorded period.

Garden Grove commonly experiences weather like earthquakes, strong winds and even wildfires. An earthquake blew out power all over Garden Grove in 1999. Power outages are never convenient for business, and with severe weather such as this, you never know when the power will be restored in the workplace.

To protect your business, be ready for any crisis that could occur on your commercial property. We’ve put together information that will help you better understand what kinds of workplace emergencies you should be prepared for.

<h2damage">Water Damage

Excessive water or moisture infiltrates businesses around the nation daily. These water emergencies might be caused by the weather or even internal problems in your office, such as a plumbing malfunction. Both of these forms of water damage can lead to costly repairs.

Flooding that starts on the outside, such as from flash floods or even dams breaking, can infiltrate your property’s doors and windows, causing damage to your facility’s foundation. Consider using your landscaping to direct water away from your business if you have space around it, as this is a smart way to safeguard your business.

Water damage can develop into a bigger concern when leakage occurs in appliances or burst pipes. Make an effort to inspect your plumbing for any signs of leaks and check your walls and flooring for wet spots and warping. Taking these steps on a regular basis will help you stay ahead of the damage and avoid pricey repairs.

<h2damage">Storm Damage

Storms have a constant impact on businesses, and when severe weather wreaks havoc on a whole region, numerous businesses might be impacted at the same time. Even mild storms can result in power disruptions that can shut down your business for hours, if not days.

Major storms can rip entire infrastructures apart, tearing away a company’s roof and exposing the inside of your building to storm hazards.

Storms can create winds of up to 10 to 45 mph, but a severe storm like the ones common during hotter seasons can produce wind gusts of over 100 mph! Storms like this can rip trees out of the ground, topple large vehicles and throw debris all over the place.

Precautions like storm-proof windows are a great way to reduce the chance of damage during a storm, but these measures can be expensive.

But low-cost efforts can also help. Inspect your building for any cracks or gaps that may allow rain or flood waters to seep into your property and have them sealed to help prevent water damage. Before a storm, secure any outdoor equipment, inventory or furniture to keep strong winds from picking up and damaging these valuable items.
