business man in office talking to female SERVPRO rep SERVPRO of Reno Southwest is here for your business every step of the way, from ERPs to disaster recovery.

One of the worst things about disasters is that they often take you by surprise. One minute you are working on this month’s schedule or chatting with an employee, and the next, you are running to the fire extinguisher or your water shutoff valve.

Once your adrenaline wears off and you are surrounded by the reality of your situation, it can be really overwhelming. That’s where SERVPRO of Reno Southwest comes into play! We can help you recover no matter your situation, and we will be with you every step of the way.

Preparing for Different Scenarios

While we can’t always prevent specific disaster situations from occurring, having a basic emergency plan in place can help you stay in control no matter the situation. Your staff will be better-prepared, and everyone will respond faster!

The first step is to develop a reliable communication plan and make sure everyone is on the same page with you. Designate a chain of command and determine who will be in charge of what, from calling 911 to grabbing emergency kits.

In addition, you should also take a full tour of your building to make sure everyone understands where emergency exits are located and where your emergency items are like fire extinguishers and water valves.

Once everyone has a basic understanding of what to do, discuss the plan for post-disaster recovery. Choose a backup location for your team to meet and work while repairs are taking place or ensure everyone has the equipment they need to work remotely.

Recovering Faster

While having a plan in place can help you avoid catastrophic damage, it doesn’t guarantee that you will emerge without a single scratch or disruption to your business. That’s where we come in! Our team will help restore and rebuild your home no matter how extensive the damage is.

You can relax in the knowledge that we will take care of everything for your property, but you still have to [take care of your employees and customers](https://www.chase.com/business/knowledge-center/manage/reopening-your-business. They deserve to know what is going on and when to expect life to return to normal, so keep them updated and communicate as much as you can along the way.

We also want to remind you that this entire process is only temporary. While it might be frustrating to have to work remotely or in an adjusted capacity for the time-being, we will work hard to make sure your recovery goes as quickly as possible. There will be light at the end of the tunnel!

Take the time to develop an emergency plan, and always know that your local restoration team is ready to help you recover at a moment’s notice. Let us help you rebuild, restore and recover your precious and thriving business!
