Almost forty percent of the small businesses in the United States never reopen after suffering a major natural disaster, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Businesses can suffer the effects of hurricane damage for as long as two to three years after a storm has happened. While we do not have control over the occurrence of a natural disaster, being aware and prepared for a hurricane mitigates the risk of extensive damage to your property and can save you thousands of dollars.
Your commercial plumbing is an important aspect to consider and here in this article we provide you with some valuable tips on how to prepare your plumbing for the hurricane season. We all want to ensure that our property is well-secured. The best way to do this is by doing what we like to call a walk-through. A simple walk-through will help you to check whether your property is secured and if you’re prepared for the storm. Making a list of what needs to be checked is a good way to ensure that all grounds are covered during the walk-through and that everything is fit for the season.
Preparing for a hurricane disaster is a necessary process. Safety and sustainability are the key considerations to keep in mind here. Ultimately, the goal is to incur the least amount of damage during and after a storm. By offering these commercial plumbing tips, our team here at Flamingo Plumbing and Backflow Services hopes that you will be better prepared for hurricane season!
