How SERVPRO of Northeast Wichita Helps your Business through Fire Damage Restoration.
Fires are one of the most dangerous and damaging things that can happen to your business here in Wichita. Besides the fire destroying what you have worked to build there are additional safety, odor and structural issues after the blaze is gone which must be handled. That is why it is important that you keep your employees and business safe by taking the proper precautionary measures.
The first step to take is to make sure your basics are covered. This means fire alarm systems if not installed need to be and a regular inspection schedule should be implemented. Make sure alarm sensors are calibrated per manufacturer specifications. Checking battery corrosion and expiration date is another great thing to add to any inspection schedule.
Systems as old as 15 years old can still be effective measures against fires but they require more maintenance to avoid system failure. As they get to 20 years of age it is possible they have reached their technological life expectancy especially if it has not been maintained. Consult with a trained specialist if your system is still in good shape.
Get in contact with a sprinkler service even if you already have a sprinkler system. Making sure the system is functioning and having the knowledge available to you about how it works can be the difference between a small fire or a large conflagration. Additionally, the occasional sprinkler malfunction or accident can happen and cleaning up the water after a sprinkler malfunctioned is no small endeavor which businesses call us for frequently.
Having your building assessed by the fire marshal for fire hazards can help point out where the vulnerabilities are. An Emergency Ready Plan from SERVPRO of Northeast Wichita can drastically help reduce the size of an emergency if one were to happen. This service we provide for businesses is a documented resource tool for your employees which they can refer to in an emergency. It contains instructions from how and where to turn off the sprinklers to who to call first in the event of a fire.
It is just one of many things you can do to protect yourself. Give us a call today and ask about getting a free emergency plan put together for your business by us – (316) 684-6700.
