Here’s a question for business owners: What was the biggest lesson you learned dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic during 2020 (and beyond)?

For many business owners, the answer is clear. You can’t always plan for what will happen in the future or predict it. But you can be nimble, imaginative and look for new ways to do business even during less than ideal circumstances.

And that’s true of any issue that impacts your business. While few of us had plans for a pandemic, many business owners already have a disaster plan in place for more common natural disasters like severe storms, fires or floods.

In our years working with business owners like you, we’ve learned that being prepared for a disaster through planning and dealing with a disaster can be a very different experience. That’s why our team has pulled together some of the best tips for business owners who are facing the rebuilding process after a disaster.

Advice Business Owners Can Use

You can reopen your business quickly and efficiently after a disaster. Here’s how we recommend that you do it:

Work your disaster plan. It’s smart to work on this plan before you need it because you’ll be in a better frame of mind to think things through. For example, some may consider moving to a backup location to continue offering services.

Reach out to your employees. The people who work for you will be impacted by your business having to close or change temporarily and may need assistance. The Small Business Administration (SBA) can be a good resource for you.

Stay in communication with your insurance company. Take plenty of pictures of the damage and build an inventory of everything that was lost or damaged during the disaster. Make providing any documentation they ask for a priority.

Update the members of your community. Communicate with your suppliers, your employees, your customers and your wider community so that they know where you are in the restoration process. You’ll also want to let them know if you’re working from a temporary location. Think about using social media or an email list as a tool.

Work with the right partners. Choose competent professionals to work on your restoration process and repair any of the damage. It will make opening up again easier.

If a fire, flood or any other cause damages your business, you can always count on us for restoration assistance. We have crews who are available 247 in the event of an emergency. Contact us at any time to learn more about our restoration services and how we can help you.
