A ﬂood can bring severe devastation that few small/medium sized businesses can recover from. The direct and indirect losses from a ﬂood are usually not fully covered by insurance, and many businesses never bounce back, or greatly struggle to do so.
Water intrusion as shallow as two inches, often causes damages so severe the company must shut it’s doors for repairs. Businesses, like restaurants or storage facilities, may not survive a loss on this level when they rely on continuous occupants for cash ﬂow. Companies that are forced to evacuate for even short periods of time must battle to win back customers and get back on their feet.
The downtime wading through the insurance claims process alone can potentially cripple a business. Especially if they do not have funds to restore the building, replace lost inventory or equipment, and keep aﬂoat in the interim.
Other than insurance and a good restoration plan, what can you do to protect against property damages and downtime caused by ﬂoodwaters?
Damage from flash flooding can be prevented with dry flood proofing methods. By investing in a commercial ﬂood prooﬁng system, you can potentially save hundreds of thousands of dollars.
