Don’t Let a Hurricane Shut Down Your Wethersfield Business

7/28/2021 (Permalink)

A hurricane cloud spins in the sky There's a lot you can do to protect your Wethersfield business from hurricane damage. Follow these tips from SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield.

A hurricane or strong wind storm hitting your commercial building can be a true disaster, one that might threaten the continued survival of your business. You can’t stop Mother Nature, but you can be ready to prevent damage and recover quickly if you get hit by a storm. So, during hurricane season, Wethersfield business owners and managers should take these precautions to avert the worst effects of a hurricane.

Long Before the Storm Hits

If your business is located within 50 miles of the coast—and all of Wethersfield is!—then you are at increased risk of suffering both property damage and a business interruption from a hurricane.

  • Stay informed about potential hurricanes and other storms. You can sign up the National Hurricane Center to receive updates of threatening weather.
  • Long before a hurricane is in the forecast, you should create a business continuity plan that details how your business will recover from storm-related and other damage.
  • Keep a well-stocked emergency kit on hand, including first aid equipment, battery-powered radio, flashlights and a supply of nonperishable food and water.
  • Maintain an updated emergency contact list of all your employees.
  • Decide which storm damage remediation company—we suggest SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield!—will handle your cleanup and restoration.

When the Storm Is on its Way

A storm is coming, and Wethersfield is forecasted to feel the effects. Now is the time to get to work protecting your physical plant from wind and rain. Take as many of these precautions as you can before the hurricane hits.

  • Cover your windows and doors with plywood or hurricane shutters.
  • Make sure that exhaust fans, solar panels and HVAC equipment are firmly attached to your roof.
  • Move vehicles inside to a garage or warehouse. Lash down signs, dumpsters and other heavy objects outside your building.
  • Inside, move documents to a secure area, above ground level. Cover computers, copiers and other electronic equipment with plastic sheets.

After the Storm Passes

  • Use your contact list to check in with your employees.
  • Contact your insurance company ASAP to get a start on processing any property damage claims.
  • Take photos and video of damage, and keep receipts for storm-related expenses.
  • Contact SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield for the quickest, most thorough storm damage remediation at a time when lots of Wethersfield businesses will be competing for storm cleanup services.
