For a company in Thornton, CO, it’s important to protect against flood damage. Doing so can help you get your company back in working order after a large storm. Many storm damage restoration professionals recommend taking the following steps in order to mitigate possible damage.

Regularly Inspect and Maintain Company Property

When preparing for storm damage it's important to inspect and maintain any company property that may be at risk. Some things you may want to look for include

  • Cracks in the foundation
  • Areas of landscaping where water may pool
  • Leaks around windows and doors
  • Secure storm shutters
  • Trimming branches of trees that could fall into the property
  • Loose landscaping or yard furniture that could be picked up by the wind

Have a Flood Plan Ready

Another way to help mitigate flood damage is to have a flood plan ready for your business. This may include the location of any supplies, how to backup files, evacuation routes, and emergency contact numbers. It's important to share this information with your employees as well. You may also want to include the number of a storm restoration company, such as SERVPRO, in this plan.

Prepare Before the Storm Occurs

Another way to help avoid flooding is to prepare before the storm occurs. This may include tarping or bordering over areas that are at risk of damage, securing storm shutters, clearing debris from the drainage areas, backing up your files, and moving paper documents and furniture away from doors and windows.

If you're trying to mitigate flood damage at your Thornton, CO, business, you may want to consider the following. Regularly inspect and maintain your company property including the roof of your business, create a flood plan and ensure your employees know what it contains, and be ready to prepare when you know a storm is coming.
