Commercial Commercial Fire/Water A storage room that had been affected by the sprinkler system.

When you are a commercial business renting a space you have to worry about the other tenants around you. 

Recently we had a commercial fire that was caused by a business next door. Luckily, the business that called us had insurance on their merchandise and equipment. 

A fire had broken out and the sprinkler system was set off and affected the entire work area as well as a display room and its contents.

Due to their contract with the building owner, everything from the wall paint inwards was the renters responsibility, and we were able to provide restoration services.

Unexpected disasters, like this incident, can happen to any business or any one. Please always be prepared and make sure your assets are covered, and if anything happens you know you can always call SERVPRO of Rockford and we can make it "Like it never even happened."

Owning a commercial building can be difficult. Owning a commercial building filled with renters who you don't know very well, can be devastating.

Included in this post is a picture from a kitchen fire that happened in a large apartment building. Besides having the renter affect their own living space, there is also a chance of having other renters being affected by the same disaster. 

There are always risks when someone owns such a large building filled with many people, and accidents just waiting to happen. Whether it is caused by the tenant or by forces uncontrolled. 

Our SERVPRO team was on-site the same day of this fire, were able to start clearing debris, and talking the building owner through the stages of remediation. 

 We respond quickly to commercial losses and are prepared to provide services during these unforeseen disasters.

Most businesses will not be able to open their doors after a disaster strikes.  Unfortunately,  disasters can happen anytime and can be completely unexpected. The best way to get back on your feet after a disaster is having a plan already prepared.

SERVPRO offers an ERP app/prgram. The ERP stands for Emergency Ready Plan, and helps business owners consolidate any important information that could be needed during an event. 

We will have one of our marketers come out and walk you through the steps and prepare a binder with all your information. 

You will be able to have a written copy of your plan as well as an online option to edit when needed. Included in the plan is information on electric, water, gas, and alarm shut offs. You can even customize where we park when you have an emergency.

If you want more information give SERVPRO of Rockford a call and we can provide all this free of charge!

What is an ERP?

An ERP is an acronym for 'Emergency Ready Plan'. SERVPRO provides a way to prepare yourself for when disaster strikes. Whether it is your home or business you can have an ERP on hand for free. 

For Business

What does an ERP provide? It provides a place for important information to reside until you need it. For businesses, our marketers will come out and do a walk through in the building. We will help point out where your water, gas, and electric shut off is located. They will then be tagged and a photo will be taken. 

We will also sit down with the business owner and go through sprinkler systems, alarm systems and companies that you will need to inform when disaster strikes. 

An ERP is a way to provide information to your employees of what to do when a disaster happens to your business. 

We put all this information, and photos, in a binder as well as online access to the business owner so they had can  have all the needed information in one place.

If you are wanting to be ready for a disaster than give us a call at SERVPRO of Rockford!
