It’s Time to Reevaluate Your Bartow County Weather Strategy | SERVPRO of Bartow County
When severe weather strikes, it has a tendency to affect entire communities, with businesses bearing the brunt of the damage. Weather damage of any kind can be difficult to recover from, but business owners and their teams suffer the most when time and money are spent repairing what has been lost.
It may appear pointless to plan for these unavoidable disasters, but preparing your commercial building and your hardworking team inside may just be what keeps your Acworth business afloat after a severe weather event.
Acworth weather can be a lot less intimidating to face head-on when you know what’s coming and have an effective response plan in place. Use these tips to secure your commercial building and prepare your team for the unexpected:
Understand Your Risk
You shouldn’t begin drafting your weather plan until you are aware of all the serious threats Acworth encounters year-round. This year, flooding, persistent rain and strong winds have already been a burden for our area.
These aren’t the only dangers your business is up against—the extended effects of coastal hurricanes, hailstorms and tornadoes are all conditions you must consider as you prepare for the worst.
While having a plan in place can be valuable for events like this, it is also critical to stay up to date on any impending weather emergencies. Knowing what’s coming will allow you to inform your clients and team, as well as give you time to protect your business and put your stellar plan into action when the time comes.
Protect Your Workplace
There are numerous essential elements of your workplace that you will rush to protect before a severe storm, including your employees, your building, your customers, equipment and inventory.
The most important factor to include in your business plan is a communication strategy.
Have a means of connecting with your team so that everyone knows what to do before, during and after a storm so that you can protect every facet of your Acworth business.
When severe storms are in the forecast, you will unsurprisingly be concerned for the structural safety of your commercial building, and luckily, there are numerous ways to prevent damage! Protect the inside by beginning on the outside by redesigning your landscaping to be flood-proof, maintaining your commercial roof in good condition and storing any outside equipment in a safe place when severe weather is predicted.
Be Ready for the Aftermath
