Organizations need every bit of help possible in order to stay afloat. As a company owner or manager, you are well aware that maintaining a seamless operation requires the assistance of every available hand. Significant delays or losses may force you to permanently close your doors.

However, your retail space, manufacturing facility or rental property already has a hidden partner that can assist with all of your cleaning and recovery needs, and it’s just outside your door. SERVPRO of West Milwaukee is capable of satisfying a wide range of company demands; it’s as if you have a new business partner handling an entire component of your organization’s success strategy.

Large Loss Recovery. Fires, storms and flooding are the most common causes of financial loss for organizations in the United States, and they may result in much more damage if urgent action is not taken. When you contact SERVPRO, you can be certain that you are calling a highly experienced team that is available 24 hours a day to deliver proven emergency services, reducing business interruptions and accelerating the recovery process.

Emergency Ready Plan. Recovery begins even before the disaster occurs—that is, if your firm has been well prepared. We can assist you in determining the ideal strategy for when the time is right. During a crisis, you may need an emergency chain of command, alternative meeting or work locations, and temporary suppliers, and we’ll have you configured for a simple button press to initiate all of this.

Cleaning of All Kinds. We provide solutions for a wide variety of cleaning situations, ranging from specialized requirements such as trauma site cleanup and safe biohazard removal to more routine requirements such as carpet cleaning and upholstery restoration. We’ve been in this business for a long period of time and have seen and cleaned almost everything.

Restoration Services. Flash floods can ensue from a storm. The interns could ignite a fire in the kitchen. A water main can burst. All of these unfortunate events require cleanup and restoration. You can rely on us to restore the sparkle to your business after a property damage disaster, from water removal through restoration.

Industry Specialization. There is no industry that we are unable to help, and we have spent decades mastering the intricacies of them all. We can assist you with any unique or specialized cleaning or restoration requirements your business may have. In many circumstances, we can even enclose the work area to avoid interfering with adjacent regions’ normal activities.

Whatever your recovery need may be, and whatever your commercial property may require, trust SERVPRO to get the job done. Contact us today to get started on an Emergency Ready Plan or find out how we can serve your business.

 

Preventing Fires in the Workplace

11/1/2019 (Permalink)

Often times we discuss how to prevent fires at home, but not always what we can do to prevent fires in the workplace. The best thing we can do as employers is educate the employees and keep our buildings running smoothly.

Here are some additional tips on things that the occupants of any commercial facility can do to help prevent fires in the workplace.

  1. Make sure your fire extinguishers, control panels and any other fire protection equipment is easily accessible.
  2. If you have any hazardous materials or waste on site, make sure they are stored properly and disposed of properly.
  3. Schedule regular maintenance to make sure all your fire protection equipment is up to code and functioning properly.
  4. Have regular fire drill training and educate your employees how to use fire protection devices.
  5. Consider investing in building security. Employees should know how to lock up the building and how to report suspicious activity.
  6. Have a designated smoking area that is a safe distance away from the building.
  7. Have an emergency plan in place. SERVPRO of West Milwaukee has a great program available to all commercial facilities and it’s absolutely FREE for your business!
  8. Follow OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) and NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) Guidelines.

SERVPRO of West Milwaukee will always help you be prepared for the unexpected. If you do experience a fire at your workplace, give us a call and we’ll get to work to restore your property to its preloss condition as soon as possible to minimize down time.

Emergency Ready Profile

You are the facilities director for several properties. It’s 1:00am and your phone rings. A pipe burst in one of the 20 buildings you manage. Which one is it? Where is the water shutoff? Who do I call first and who’s going to answer in the middle of the night?

Having a plan in place should a disaster strike is the best way to minimize down time and business interruption. The percent of businesses that never reopen after suffering a disaster is overwhelming at 50%. Of the ones that survive, the majority of them had a preparedness plan in place. A SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile can be a great asset to your company. It is a great supplement to existing disaster/contingency plans as well.
