Give Me Closure

Fire in local restaurant in Charleston, WV

When you are dealing with grief, divorce, or any other loss in your life we have to sometimes search for closure. This closure involves healing and brings about the ability to move on in life. In most cases, people want closure in times of tragedy, but today we will look at a different kind of closure that nobody wants to experience.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 20% of all small businesses will close in their first year and about 50% of small businesses will close by their 5th year.  Although there may be many different reasons for these businesses to close, you can be sure that it is not an easy thing to go through.

With the odds already stacked against a business being able to survive in normal circumstances, you throw an unexpected tragedy such as a fire, or water loss and you really up the odds for a permanent closure. It is estimated that over 50% of businesses that sustain a catastrophe will not recuperate from it.

That is why SERVPRO came up with its Emergency Ready Plan for businesses. Knowing as much as 50% of businesses close down following a disaster and with the businesses that do actually survive, the overwhelming majority of them had a preparedness plan in place we saw the need for pre-planning. Our “ERP” can serve as an insurance policy aimed at peace of mind by knowing you are "Ready for whatever happens." Having a SERVPRO “ERP” along with other contingency plans can speak trust to your clients and employees that in the event your business is affected by a disaster, they don’t necessarily have to be affected by it. You can get help quickly and start the recovery process faster.

Our Commercial Restoration Consultants are trained to look for potential safety issues at you Charleston, WV area business and will create an Emergency Readiness Plan with emergency contact information. We will even tag all of your properties main shutoffs as well as deliver an emergency escape plan for the building occupants.
