When it comes to your Ulster County business, it’s essential to have any commercial restoration work done right. Whether your business needs help cleaning up after a fire, a busted pipe or another disaster, business owners should look for a partner that can do the work from cleanup through restoration and do an excellent job at every phase.

But when the time comes to choose a commercial restoration partner after a disaster, it can feel overwhelming. After all, the issue you’re dealing with impacts your livelihood and success. That’s why it’s a good idea to put some thought into it beforehand.

Taking the First Steps

If you’re dealing with a disaster, this advice from the Insurance Information Institute can help you get the process started:

Reach out to your insurance company. As soon as you realize your business is damaged, this step can help you get the process rolling.

Make sure your space and records are secure. Don’t leave your business and essential information vulnerable.

Make a list of damaged assets. You’ll need this information for the insurance company.

Take pictures, if you can. Debris and destroyed items may need to be documented.

Choosing a Restoration Partner

You’ll also want to choose a company to work with that can meet your needs and provide you and your business with exemplary service. Here are some of the things to look for when you’re choosing a commercial restoration service:

Find a company with highly trained experts using the latest technology. You’ll feel better knowing that the people working on your businesses have the training and certifications needed to deal with disaster cleanup. You’ll also benefit if they have access to technology to make the cleaning process faster and easier.

Choose a partner with excellent customer service. Communication is vital when your business suffers a disaster. You’ll want to work with a team who answers the phone when you call—who is available when you need help.

Select a team that understands disaster cleanup. Many companies can do regular cleaning around your business, but it takes special training and skills to handle a fire, storm or another type of disaster. Be sure the company you choose is experienced in restoration work that goes beyond cleaning.
