Why Preparation is Necessary for Successful Commercial Flood Remediation in Twin Falls
How You Can Prepare Your Youth Center for Commercial Flood Damage in Twin Falls
While your youth center might not feel like one of Twin Falls' many businesses, it still features many of the same structural components. Flooding and other disasters can affect it, causing you to close the center and cancel all activities until some future date. SERVPRO can help you move that date closer, starting before a flood even happens in our area.
The primary way we help businesses and others in the communities around Twin Falls prepare for commercial flood damage is through our READY Plan Profile. We offer this to those in the community, free of charge, to help make things as organized as possible during the hectic activity following such crises. We also assist in completing the Profile, if someone requests such help.
The Profile helps you mark exits, valuable pieces of equipment, utilities' shut-off locations, stairways, and other detailed information that our crews receive en route. This information helps them set up and begin mitigating flood damage and preventing other areas from ever sustaining contact with filthy floodwater.
Knowing that you have only one phone call to make when you notice flooding beginning can help you feel more confident and in charge of an otherwise frightening situation. During the winter, abnormally warm days can melt snow and cause localized flooding. Either can cause damage to your center. We respond to both, as no job it too large, nor too small.
Other things you might find productive in keeping flood damage to a minimum include keeping a backup of any records on office computers. You might want to consider keeping copies of programs that patrons use on youth center computers in the teens' or children’s' tutoring labs.
Other things, like foodstuffs, cannot be served if they contact floodwater. Storing these only in higher sections of the pantry instead of the lowermost portions can prevent food waste. Larger pots and pans can take up space below, as we can clean these sufficiently, allowing your staff to use them once your center reopens.
Placing books and other paper-based materials, including art supplies, up and away from the floor can save not only the center's costly book collection but also the artwork that your younger patrons proudly created. Flood damage can destroy such masterpieces in seconds, making the prevention of such disasters highly important to the youngest members of the neighborhood.
