The Disaster Recovery Process: What to Expect

When businesses are hit by a major disaster and require extensive cleaning and repairs, only certified experts can help. Here is what you can expect the disaster recovery process to look like if your commercial property is impacted by a catastrophic event in Zilker, TX.

1. Storm Damage Response Teams Will Band Together
When a severe storm or hurricane rips through one area, the level of commercial damage will often require an increase in manpower. Your local damage cleanup and restoration company can lead the efforts within the community, though that may not be enough on its own. In large-scale events, these experts can rely on their corporate network of support. If needed, a surplus of certified technicians and industry-standard equipment will be available at their beck and call.

2. Extensive Cleanup Will Ensue
Whether your business has been flooded by a hurricane or damaged by a raging wildfire, the disaster recovery process will require extensive cleanup. This could involve the extraction of water and drying of the building, or removing soot and smoke buildup from the structure. Additionally, deep disinfecting and sanitizing will need to occur to get the building sterile before any repairs can begin. Trust only experts to intervene here as improper cleaning methods can cause more damage to the structure.

3. A Lengthy Repair Process Is Possible
While local storm response teams can receive additional help, the effort to repair buildings after a catastrophic event is immense. Even with extra crews working, the extent of damage in these large-scale events often means the repair process will take longer than a minor instance. The full restoration project will vary for every case, but could include full reconstruction of portions of the building.
If your business is hit by a major storm, expect the disaster recovery process to feature a large network of response teams, extensive cleanup and a longer timeline for repairs.
