How Can I Prevent Damage in My Retail Space?
As a business owner, the well-being of your property is, and should be, a priority. When an issue arises, it’s up to you and your employees to respond quickly to minimize the damage and limit business interruptions. Here are a few things you, as a business owner, can do to help prevent damage.
Prevent Severe Water Damage
Water damage occurs due to excessive moisture and water. This may seem like common sense but we sometimes overlook minor issues that appear insignificant. To prevent water from infiltrating and harming your business, make sure to look for signs of excess water on the floor, behind walls, in the ceiling and any other surface. This can be evident by seeing dark or dried water spots, warped flooring, peeling or bubbling paint and wall paper, or noticing an order. It’s important to handle these warning signs before they become a major issue.
Prevent Severe Mold Damage
The best way to prevent mold damage from occurring is to take note of the conditions in which your business is operating. This is everything from effective mopping techniques, preventing excess water from lingering, to watching humidity levels throughout the day. If you see signs of mold growth, it’s important to address this as soon as possible to prevent further damage from occurring.
Prevent Severe Fire Damage
To prevent fire damage, it’s important to know your business’s fire risks. We strong recommend against allowing employees to light candles. Open flames, dry air and clutter can all eventually contribute to a fire. Be sure not to overload electrical outlets and keep them clear of clutter.
