We Help Local Shops With Water Damage Preparedness

SERVPRO® is always nearby, and our teams are Faster to any size disaster™. Our quick response helps reduce the amount of water damage sustained from busted pipes or other plumbing accidents. Businesses in Mount Kisco can take disaster-preparation steps to reduce how much damage their business experiences.

One method many businesses, including Mount Kisco companies, use to prepare for commercial water damage is the Emergency Ready Plan (ERP) from SERVPRO. Authorized parties manage their company's profile on this free service through an easy-to-access app. SERVPRO and chosen managerial staff members have access to the same information when a disaster occurs.

In addition to the benefits a READY profile brings a company, businesses can do other things to protect themselves. Businesses can further decrease their risk of commercial water damage by:

  • Performing periodic and regular checks on water line connections,
  • Having the roof inspected, and
  • Installing moisture-control devices.

The fittings that secure the connections between water feed lines and sinks, toilets, drinking fountains, and refrigerators can become loose, especially if the tubing is a flexible hose. Checking these for preliminary drips can prevent a costly accident.

Yearly inspections of the roof might result in early detection of gaps and soft spots that indicate deterioration. Although extremely heavy, ice dams do not always cause visual sagging. Any amount of water seeping into the underside of your roof can cause damage to insulation and structural components. When a business rents its facility, discussing this with the landlord could protect both entities.

Below ground, which is especially important if your business has any inventory or equipment stored in this area, can experience both backups and high humidity. Because of this, business owners should consider installing either a sump pump or dehumidifier or both to protect their company.
