business man in office talking to female SERVPRO rep SERVPRO of Pewaukee & Sussex is here for your business every step of the way, from ERPs to disaster recovery.

Picture this: You have worked hard at work all week, it is Friday afternoon and you are about to leave for the weekend, but suddenly an employee of yours comes rushing in saying a water main broke and water is now pouring from the ceiling.

You will most likely react immediately by jumping up and running toward the situation, and you will do everything in your power to secure your building as quickly as possible. After the adrenaline wears off, you will slowly come to terms with your watery reality.

Now what? You call SERVPRO of Pewaukee & Sussex, of course! Our team is here to help you recover no matter the kind or scale of damage.

Preparation Tips for Your Team

Of course, the best way to navigate disasters is to be prepared for them. Basic emergency plans can help your entire team stay on track in the face of a true disaster, and they can help protect everyone under your roof.

The first thing you should focus on is to make sure everyone is connected and knows how to communicate with each other in an emergency. A text chain, phone tree or even a loud-speaker announcement can inform a lot of people all at once.

You should also take the time to ensure your staff know where your emergency items are located. Water shut-off valves, fire extinguishers and emergency exits should all be part of your building tour, and you should explain how to use these things in an emergency.

Finally, your plan should include steps for what to do after the disaster situation has occurred. Locate and communicate a backup location for your employees to gather, or be sure everyone has what they need to work remotely in the interim.

Recovering Confidently

If you have a plan, you are already halfway there when it comes to a full recovery! After your situation is secure, get SERVPRO® on the phone so we can handle your entire restoration.

We will take over the cleaning and restoration duties so you can focus on communicating with your customers and staff. Your loyal team and consumer base will want to know when you will be back open for regular business, so you should keep them updated on the progress and stay positive throughout the process.

Our team will also work hard to find ways for you to continue working in your business while we are rebuilding your space. While you may have to adjust how you do things temporarily, keep in mind that this is only temporary and regular life is just right around the corner.

We want you to focus on creating an emergency plan that you can use at a moment’s notice, but we also want you to lean on us when disaster does strike. We will work incredibly hard to help you recover faster and enjoy once again all of the benefits that being a business owner in the Waukesha area provides.
