SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profiles

10/12/2018 (Permalink)

Did you know 50% of businesses close down following a disaster? Of the businesses that do survive, the majority had a preparedness plan in place. By Developing a SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile (ERP) for your business, you can know that you are “Ready for whatever happens.” Whether the disaster strikes, SERVPRO of West Pasco has your back.

You can develop your business’s ERP one of two ways:

  1. Download the ERP app to your smartphone and fill out your Emergency READY Profile yourself.
  2. Call SERVPRO of West Pasco directly and ask to make an appointment for one of our team members to come down to your business and fill out an ERP for you! The number to call is (727)847-3000.

  The SERVPRO Emergency READY Program is a no cost assessment of your facility. If needed, having an ERP for your business will save you a LOT of time- and when it comes to mitigation, time is money. Having an Emergency READY Program in place can also minimize business interruption by having an immediate plan of action. Knowing what to do and what to expect in advance is the key to timely mitigation.

If you have any questions about the Emergency READY Profile, or if you would like to schedule a time for one of our employees to come to your business and fill one out, give SERVPRO of West Pasco a call at (727) 847-3000.

SERVPRO Convention 2018

7/12/2018 (Permalink)

If you happened to visit Mouseland last month, you may have seen a sea of green and orange, in addition to the usual ubiquitous mouse ear hats.  This year SERVPRO owners and team members from around the country gathered in Orlando for the annual franchise convention. It’s the “go to” event of the year and for the first time I was able to attend.

As SERVPRO of West Pasco’s Social Media Specialist, my goal is to represent our brand to the best of my ability and having the opportunity to meet with other franchise teams was a learning experience I’ll never forget. Although we operate as a franchise system and each service center is independently owned and operated, we all work as a family supporting our green and orange brothers and sisters, bouncing ideas off each other, what works and what doesn’t.

What made my experience even better was getting to make the two-hour drive from our New Port Richey office to Orlando with one of the best project coordinators known to man, Shanna. In speaking with her about her time at the convention, she was thrilled to learn about upcoming changes to our systems that will make day to day operations run more efficiently. Shanna added in that the presenters themselves were enthusiastic, making the “learning” experience more than just that, it was fun!

Now that the 2018 SERVPRO convention has ended and we’ve brought back the rich information and ideas to our local office, we’d like to thank the corporate team from Gallatin, Tennessee, for their hard work and dedication for continued growth of the green and orange brand.

Prepare Your Commercial Building

Commercial Prepare Your Commercial Building A plethora of air movers are placed in a Pasco County medical facility after flooding occurred throughout the entire facility.

As hurricane season quickly approaches, preparing your commercial building is key factor to preventing flood damages that could be quite costly.  

There are two phases to building preparation:  

  • Preventative 
  • Pre- Storm 

The Preventative Phase can be taken at any time throughout the year and should include having your building inspected and retrofitted for common risks, including flood water and heavy winds. You should also make data backup a part of your everyday routine and implement an alternate means of communication for when lines go down.  
 
The Pre-Storm phase should include closing all your storm windows, covering equipment and moving it to a secured area, disconnecting electrical equipment and turning off gas and electricity.  
 
Stay Safe 
 
When a flood warning is issued, get to higher ground as soon as possible. If flooding is already underway, stay put until authorities say that it is OK for everyone to go home. Heed all evacuation warnings, and don’t wait to act until flood water has already entered your building.  
 
A flooded building is dangerous to both your assets and your personnel. Keep everyone safe and protect your assets from water damage by implementing the tips above and contacting SERVPRO of West Pasco at (727)847-3000 for all your restoration needs.
