How Your Auto Shop in Largo Can Stay Prepared for Flood Damages
Let us help you get your Largo business back to it original state after flood damage.
Safeguarding your auto shop in Largo against dangers and damages is imperative for staying in business long term. Hurricanes and other storms can have the potential to put you out of business if you are unprepared, even if the storm appears less severe than you might have seen in seasons past. Any heavy rainstorm could become the tipping point that causes your shop to sustain flood damage. Staying prepared can help you to control costs and stay afloat even with your revenue cut off while you undergo repairs and restorations. Take these steps to make sure that you don't go under when the next storm hits.
Get Flood Insurance
Perhaps the single most influential factor in whether an auto shop in Largo can survive flood damage is the type and amount of insurance the business has. Most conventional insurance policies cover everything except for flooding unless you pay extra for that coverage. Every year, we get calls from local homes and businesses that believe they have storm damage covered through their insurance policies, but ultimately do not receive their payouts because they do not have a flood coverage policy. Make sure that your insurance policy covers flood damages and, if it does not, we strongly recommend investing in a separate flood damage policy.
Set up a SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile
The SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile (ERP) system exists to help you get emergency mitigation services to your business as fast as possible after a flood. The ERP system is designed with business owners in mind and allows you to upload relevant documents, information, and building layouts that help our technicians react fast and control the situation better than if you had placed a standard phone call. The ERP system is free to use and has an official mobile app to allow you to call for help at the touch of a button.
Call in Professional Technicians
While minor storm damage can often be fixed with some sealants and a few hours of labor, damage from large storms and hurricanes is often best left to the professionals. Hiring a company like SERVPRO helps to return you to full operations faster and may even be required by your insurance contract.
